  • "We had a fantastic holiday at Dale End Cottage."

    We had everything we needed and the surroundings are breathtaking. Highly recommend.

  • "Absolutely fantastic place to stay."

    Perfect for exploring with lovely local walks and a short drive to Bakewell, Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. The owners could not have been more helpful. Sad we only stayed for five days, would definitely recommend.

  • "Lovely cottage with good facilities and well maintained."

    Its in an ideal situation for exploring the Bakewell area. Steve the host was very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only downside was the road from Elton to the cottage. It is the worst road for potholes etc that I have driven down.

  • "Beautiful cottage which was clean and had all the necessary amenities."

    Set lovely within the property, it’s quiet but also a lovely environment for our kids to play in the garden. My youngest adored seeing the animals and my eldest got to play football outside. The rooms were comfortable, the fleece blankets in the lounge welcomed for watching a movie. Arrived to milk and cookies and we ordered a food delivery which was on time and so convenient after a long drive. Beautiful surroundings and a great location about 20 minutes from everywhere. We had a lovely stay. Thank you

  • "This was a really comfortable cottage in a gorgeous setting."

    Although it is in a farmyard with other properties, it is tucked away so feels private too, but with help on hand if needed. If you love walking, this is ideal as you can walk from the house or drive a short distance for other great walks. There is also lots to see nearby, such as Haddon Hall, and country pubs galore. If you love animals the property has free ranging chickens, and alpacas and horses in the fields plus sheep and cows everywhere you go. We really appreciated the EV charger being part of the facilities which was a reason we chose it. We had a lovely week there and would happily rebook it.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We hope you’ll consider us again. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful accommodation in a quiet location."

    It is decorated to a good standard and well maintained. It is well equipped and had everything we needed. The only thing which let it down was the double bed as it was very squeaky and kept us awake during the night. My partner ended up having to sleep downstairs on the sofa.

    So sorry for the squeaky bed my husband will resolve this straight away. Thank you for the feedback Zoe and Steve Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our holiday at Dale End Farm Cottage."

    It was set in a quiet and peaceful setting, but convenient for travelling to several places in beautiful Derbyshire. Wifi was appreciated as mobile phone reception was poor due to rural location. Owner was exceedingly helpful. Would happily recommend it as a good and reasonably priced place to stay.

    The cottage is immaculate and so comfy,photos didn't do it justice. Wanted to bring the sofa home with me! So many lovely places to visit from there and we were fortunate to have been there for the Bakewell International Dance Festival, what a wonderful day.We had a lovely peaceful time, we will be back!

  • "This is an amazing little cottage , is attached to the owners house and there are two other properties on the farm but there was a lovely garden to sit in and Steve and Lucy the owners were available if you needed anything, we didn’t but they checked we were ok and had settled in ."

    The cottage is immaculately decorated inside and the sting room had the most amazingly comfortable sofa ever sat on . Kitchen well equipped and smart tv . We didn’t have to use the log burner but looks amazing . The cottage is away from the bustle of a town there is a pub within walking distance , in the nearest village but can’t remember the last time was able to sit out in a garden and just listen to birds without any road noise . This cottage is a gem and plenty of parking and also EV charging point and is only 6 miles from Matlock so I’m a very central location

  • "We enjoyed a lovely week staying in the cottage which is very peaceful and has been renovated to a high standard."

    The downstairs is very compact, with limited storage, but very comfortable and cosy. Lovely little garden but worth noting that it is not private as the trampoline and swings are available to the other two properties on the farm. The owners were very friendly and happy to offer recommendations in the local area. Thank you.

  • "Lovely cottage beautifully decorated."

    We were 2 adults and 2 children aged 6 and 8. My girls loved seeing the animals on the farm especially the ponies and made use of the trampoline, swing and slide. It was in a good location to be able to explore the Peak District. We were grateful that Zoe had advised us to take an easier route to and from Dale End Farm which was left out of the farm and used that route as appose to the one my sat nav was directing us to. My sister and I enjoyed how quiet and peaceful the farm was and the views are lovely.

    Close to lots of attractions, but far enough away to be nice and quite. Well maintained and very nicely furnished. Better than the pictures, exceeded our expectations. Looking to book again.

  • "The cottage is in a lovely location with great walks, access to Bakewell and Chatsworth and looking out over a field with alpacas."

    The cottage has been well refurbished and is very modern inside. Note that it does not have a washing machine and there did not seem to be any instructions for the property (we did find details online but mobile reception was unreliable). The cottage was very cosy (although the heating did not seem easy to control) and we had a lovely time exploring the local area.

    Hi Lisa Sorry I’ve only just seen your review. First of all thank you for taking the time. Apologises for the small sink we thought it was better than walking around something. We have amended the listing now to say there is no washing machine. We stopped printing the literature due to COVID and it’s on the website however I might print again now you’ve mentioned it.

  • "Brilliant cottage, which we will happily return to!"

    The cottage was really lovely and cozy and was a real home from home. Would -and will!- recommend to all our friends and relatives. Only (minor) issue was the lack of any literature about the house, so we had no idea how to use the hob, what to do with rubbish and laundry and what the WiFi password was? Could be that a previous guest has taken the information book home with them by mistake?

    Thank you so much for staying with us sorry the handbook has gone. We have one on line on the website now Property Owner

  • "We've just enjoyed a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing few days in this delightful cottage."

    It's set in exceptionally quiet and beautiful countryside with glorious sights such as Chatsworth (where we picnic-ed by the stream under one of the magnificent 100 year old trees), Haddon Hall and the stunning Dales are all within easy reach. The summer evenings were perfect for picking up the easy walking trail that meandered pleasantly through wild flowers and grasses near the cottage, then relaxing in the garden afterwards.The fresh air invigorated my 97 year old mum so much that she played with her adult grand-daughter on the children's garden swing and scooter there on the final day ( resisting the temptation to try out the large trampoline as well)!The three of us came home feeling very refreshed. The cottage was high on quality. It had a comfy sofa and beds to hunker down in at night; a compact but efficient kitchen area with an easy to operate, modern induction hob/oven and microwave and a gorgeous shower room/loo upstairs. The attractive lawned garden with cherry tree, herbaceous border and side hedge (with sparrows) at the front of the cottage provided a very pleasant outdoor space for us to enjoy every day.(The garden at the back of the cottage belongs to the owners but was never in use during our stay). Our warm and welcoming hosts, owners Steve and Zoe, who live in the adjacent farmhouse, were very relaxed, friendly and attentive without being remotely intrusive. They are happy for guests to park conveniently outside the cottage on arrival. We would heartily recommend this cottage, especially when evenings are long as the outdoors can bring even greater enjoyment.

    Thank you for such a lovely review it was such a pleasure to meet you. Best wishes Property Owner

    Was advertised having washing machine (one thing we needed) but there wasn't one owner did offer to do some washing but we managed. Also a hand rail is needed on stairs especially for the elderly and infirm. Discussed this with owner and he agreed to solve this problem. We enjoyed our week despite above.

    Thank you for staying with us we are working on getting the hand rail installed. We have told Sykes to remove the washing machine from the listing although we are happy to wash anything as required. Best wishes Zoe and Steve Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the rural hamlet of Gatton near Winster in the heart of the Peak District National Park, is this lovely, stone-fronted cottage, Dale End Farm Cottage.

Enjoying over 2 acres of open fields, this cottage is an idyllic base for avid walkers, so bring along your family and friends for a countryside escape.

Step inside to discover the open plan set up, where you can snuggle up besides the flickering woodburning stove as the TV does the entertaining.

Rustle up heart-warming meals in the kitchen area with an oven and hob to assist you and when dinner is ready, settle down at the dining table to tuck-in.

Spend summer evenings on your own private patio, where you can savour a glass of wine and admire the peaceful setting.

As the air grows cool, head inside and climb upstairs and rinse the day away in the sleek shower room where a fluffy towel awaits on a heated towel rail.

When sleep calls, you can take your pick between a lovely king-size bedroom and a twin, so why not snuggle up in bed with a hot chocolate?

After a steaming cup of coffee on your patio garden, lace up your walking boots and explore the surrounding countryside, with a plethora of trails to choose from.

A short stroll will lead you to a traditional pub, Duke of York Inn, for those who fancy a crisp pint or for a greater selection, why not venture to the quaint town of Bakewell?

The market town of Bakewell is the birthplace of the Bakewell Tart so be sure to sample a slice before leaving and on the fringe of the town you will discover the stately home of Chatsworth House, where Pride and Prejudice was filmed!

Visit the town of Matlock, scattered with independent cafes and specialty stores, as well as a vintage steam train, where you can soak in the Derbyshire landscape.

For a special escape to the Peak District, choose Dale End Farm Cottage.

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.
