The property

Tucked away amidst the charm and delight of the Peak District National Park in the village of Birchover is this superb converted chapel dwelling, Andlestone.

This wonderful retreat is positioned for a group of walkers looking to explore the multitude of walks among the rolling countryside, or is spacious enough for a family seeking a base to celebrate a special occasion.

The interior enjoys a seamless blend of contemporary and character, with the original features complementing the carefully selected furnishings and all the quality appliances you will need during a week-long break.

Enter through the imposing stone-built porch, where you can kick off your walking boots before relaxing into your evening.

The quirky layout of the accommodation means that you will find three well-presented bedrooms resting on the ground floor, comprising a double bedroom and two twin bedrooms, each designed with a refreshing ambience and a flexible arrangement in mind.

The ground floor is completed by a modern family bathroom, featuring a bath, a separate walk-in shower, basin and WC, as well as a shower room with walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Venture up the staircase to enjoy sociable evenings with your loved ones gathered in the open-plan living room, with soaring arched beams, where the original chapel windows flood the space with natural light.

To the rear of the space is a well-equipped kitchen, where the designated chef of the group will find everything to fulfill your culinary needs to create your own delicious evening meals.

Joining here is the sitting area, where plush sofas await you after an action-packed day to tune into the TV and unwind.

If you can tear yourself away from the idyllic base, two pubs await you just a stone’s throw away, and a choice of pubs serving food can be found within Winster if you don’t feel like cooking one evening.

Find a multitude of walks from the doorstep of the cottage, including the Nine Ladies stone circle walk and the Limestone Way.

Alternatively, brush up on the local history by discovering Chatsworth House or spending some time within the market town of Bakewell.

Andlestone is a delightful base for exploring the countryside setting of the Peak District National Park.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

  • Miss Mackenzie

    “This was an affordable stay with a spacious lounge area, however the kitchen was not sufficient for self catering and the 4x single mattresses were incredibly uncomfortable which somewhat spoilt the trip.”

    - Miss Mackenzie, October 2020

    Thank you for staying at Andlestone and taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry that you found the single mattresses uncomfortable. You were the first guests to make this comment and since your stay, we have now replaced all of the mattresses and also one of the sets of bedding at the property. In terms of the kitchen, just to clarify, Andlestone has a full kitchen, which is well equipped. From your email to us, we understand that you would have liked the kitchen to be bigger. We understand that each guest is different and that at the current time guests are eating in more often than they would have done previously. As you say, the lounge area is very spacious, we feel that the large, open-plan living and dining area is what makes Andlestone unique. Other guests have commented on how much they loved sitting around the large table as a family. Increasing the size of the kitchen would eat into this space and so we feel that, on balance, the size of the kitchen is appropriate. We do hope that we can welcome you back in future - Sykes owner relations

About the location


Bakewell 6 miles; Matlock 4.5 miles.

The conservation village of Winster is situated within the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park and is an extremely pretty place, with a charming 17th century market house at its centre, and other imposing 17th and 18th century houses, many three storeys high. The three main streets - Main Street, East Bank and West Bank are interconnected by alleyways known as ‘ginnels’, which are well worth exploring. The village of Winster is famous for its Morris dancers, the annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race, Wakes festivities in June, and the Secret Gardens of Winster event in July. Within the village there is a well-stocked, community-owned general store incorporating a Post Office. There are two pubs, both serving food and traditional beer. Bakewell, Matlock, Chatsworth House, and the Peak Rail Steam Railway are all nearby and, for keen walkers and cyclists, The Limestone Way runs along the edge of the village. The Tissington and High Peaks walking and cycling trails, with bike hire available, both lie less than 5 miles from the village, a wonderful base for exploring the Peak District.
