  • Mr Swain

    “White House provided a peaceful break away from it all.”

    It was very clean, comfy and tastefully decorated throughout. We enjoyed the local walks that were suggested by the owner; the swathes of bluebells around Cowley Knoll were particularly beautiful at this time of year.

The property

Winster 1.2 miles.

Set in the heart of Wensley village in the Derbyshire Dales, is this charming detached cottage, White House.

This heart-warming retreat is perfect for a group of 4 adults seeking a traditional getaway to an area steeped with natural beauty and a vast array of attractions to suit a group of all ages and tastes.

Be welcomed into an open-plan kitchen/diner, wonderfully appointed to the rear and holding a range of appliances to fulfil all your culinary needs.

A dining table also rests here and can seat up to four guests so you can enjoy a delicious meal together and toast to a wonderful holiday break with a refreshing glass of wine in hand.

Walk through to the sitting room which features a woodburning stove encased in a small inglenook fireplace to keep the room nice and toasty during those cooler winter months; cosy up on the plush sofas and spend a sociable evening together as a group.

As the evening draws to a close, choose from two bedrooms, set up as a double and twin with a selection of furniture for storing your personal belongings.

On this floor, you will also find a family bathroom with the choice of an elegant bath or shower over so you can prepare for your day in style.

To the rear is an enclosed garden with lawn and patio areas so you can step out and enjoy the fresh country air and watch the sunrise with a good book in hand.

If you don't fancy cooking for the evening, head out to the local pub in the neighbouring village of Winster called The Miners Standard serving traditional pub food.

This property is well-placed and is only a short drive into the bustling town of Matlock which is famous for its Victorian spa and holds a large selection of shops which make an excellent day for exploring.

Pull on your walking boots and hop in the car for a scenic drive to the Peak District National Park for outstanding hikes with unrivalled landscapes.

To get involved with some watersporting activities, venture towards the Carsington Water, particularly excellent for fishing and sailing opportunities.

Further afield is the larger parts of the Peak District National Park which are well-worth exploring, such as the Dovedale nature reserve and thriving market town of Ashbourne, Bakewell and Chatsworth.

White House is the ideal holiday spot for parents and children over the age of 10.

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.
