  • "Loved the cottage except for the size of the bedrooms."

    They were tiny and had no real storage space for clothes. This would have been even more of a problem had we been a party of 6. As it was, with only 4 of us we could use the empty bedroom as a storage room.

  • "We all had a really comfortable stay in a beautiful cottage, we felt welcomed and secure."

    Would have loved to have stayed longer as felt we had only just started exploring the fantastic walks just on our doorstep. The facilities were great and had the weather been warmer would have loved to have had a family BBQ together on the great outside furniture and BBq. Please thank the the property owners for the little detail they put into making our stay fantastic.

  • "Wow - what a super place to stay, perfect for dog owners and walkers."

    The cottage had everything you could need and was well laid out. The home touch of wine and milk was lovely as a welcome gift. If I were to make any sugestions it would be a windbreak on the patio as it is a beautiful quiet place to sit and relax - just the wind had a bite the week we stayed.

    We actually found the cottage to be better than the pictures suggested and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Our family + the dogs had a lovely long weekend stay at Dale View."

    The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable for us all. Clean and well equipped. The outdoor space with patio furniture and barbecue were great and had we visited in summer we would have made more use. Location was great and so close to lots of walks and places to visit. Thank you. We are hoping to come back later in the year.

    As a party of 6 adults we found the location and accommodation excellent, comfortable and well appointed, the owners were lovely and approachable and very helpful, we would all give a score of 9/10 for everything, the only thing that made us reduce our score was the lack of sound insulation between the kitchen/lounge and the bedrooms, apart from that we had a very enjoyable time

  • "As it was a dog friendly property, we were asked clean up after our dogs, which we did."

    However, when we arrived outside the fenced patio area where you walk and park, was loads of dog waste, and new dog waste appeared during our stay, as the owners pets were allowed to roam freely. So I found myself clearing up dog waste that was NOT from our pets, and on the last day my daughter trod in some and got it in her car, neither of which was very nice to deal with !! This would be my only criticism.

  • "Property was part of a working farm complex, secluded and rural (lovely) … house fitted out with all you might need and although not a luxury experience,."

    . a very good experience. There is no pub or eatery within walking distance, which people should be aware of and you will need to drive to eat/drink etc. We had a table at Loveage booked in Bakewell one night snd it was £17 each way - but worth it. We have 5 (small dogs) and they are used to being off lead, which wasn’t possible most of our visit … due to sheep/cows on the walking routes. That was our most significant downside. The living accommodation was large, with two decent bathrooms and 2 extra double bedrooms we didn’t use. The utility room by the front door was very useful , as was the fenced patio where our dogs could run around safely. Instructions for the TV system might have helped (although we worked it out) and more luxurious bedding? We actually brought our own sheets/pillows etc and were very glad we did. Views gorgeous and visited lots of great tourist/local sites. It was a very good experience overall.

    The owners went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we could wish for. Four adults and five dogs - plenty of space and great facilities. Jess is a very talented blacksmith and little touches of her work can be seen all round the cottage which makes for an even better experience.

    The kitchen is extremely well equipped and stocked with a lot of the basics, including wine! Dishwasher was a godsend after cooking for 6 people! We made good use of the outdoor area, that had comfortable seating, large table and secure area so we could let our dogs have a wander around. Bathrooms were immaculate, bedrooms were cosy but did the job. The location was simply perfect, quiet and peaceful. An ideal place for a getaway with the family. Would definitely recommend and may even return again in the future.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday at Dale View Farm, and will most probably return in the future!"

    The holiday cottage itself had everything we needed (cooking equipment, barbecue, washing machine, TV, sofas, comfy outside seating etc) and was full of charm. We took 5 dogs with us and they loved lying in the sun on the fenced patio area and could walk around freely in the living area, as the downstairs bedrooms were gated off. There are plenty of beautiful walks right on your doorstep, without having to drive for a day out - I would definitely recommend going on the walk to the right behind the cottage (gorgeous scenery). Phone signal isn't great, but there is WiFi, so we were still able to order a takeaway one night. The cottage owners were lovely, and there was wine and milk waiting for us on arrival.

  • "It would be beneficial to have a picture of the patio /outside area on the website as this is not included in the current photos."

    The current photos make it look like you have use of the lawn at the front when you do not. It would have been good to know that the property is shared with the owners property ( i did know this as I read the reviews) as this is not in the description. The owners used the field out the back for camping and so this made it less private for us. There was a lot of coming and going at the owners property so we did not feel as secluded as we would have liked. Nonetheless the property was very nice, comfortable, well equipped and well decorated. We would use Sykes again but to book elsewhere.

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.
