  • “The cottage was smaller than the photos made out, which was disappointing, and I'd certainly not want six adults to stay, particularly with only one bathroom.”

    The mattress in the downstairs bedroom was very poor - you could feel every bump and movement no matter how careful you were. And why are the external lights permanently on?! It was really distracting for the people sleeping downstairs. However, overall the cottage is comfortable, clean and in a wonderful location.

The property

Winster 1.1 miles.

Found in the charming Peak District village of Elton is this lovely semi-detached dwelling, Croft Cottage.

Enjoying the perks of a woodburning stove and enclosed garden, Croft Cottage makes a wonderful choice for a group of six seeking a homely base from which to explore the Peak District.

On entering the property discover a handy utility area in the front hallway home to a washing machine, before passing the cloakroom containing a basin and WC.

A country-style kitchen with tiled floors and walls boasts a great range of appliances and offers a light, bright setting for preparing your self-catered meals, whilst a traditional wooden dining table and chairs rest near the wall for your group to gather around at mealtimes.

Afterwards retire to the lovely sitting room, admiring first the rustic stone fireplace which houses a woodburning stove, and relax on one of the two check sofas or classic armchair while you flick on the TV in the corner.

A back door leads you out to a neat patio area with a gate and steps bringing you into your own large enclosed lawned garden, perfect for summer days sunbathing or playing with the little ones.

Head to bed in one of the three delightful bedrooms, with a ground-floor double room along with a king-size and a double on the first floor, with antique furniture, wrought iron bed frames and quaint window seats being just some of the lovely features throughout.

Offering a more contemporary style is the sleek shower room, home to a large walk-in shower enclosure and fully tiled, you can freshen up in here before beginning the day's adventures.

Walkers will be delighted with the various routes and landmarks in the area to be discovered; walk up to nearby Robin Hood's Stride and Cratcliffe Rocks and clamber over the rocks, take a peak in the Hermit's Cave and admire the stunning scenery all around you, or visit another site Rowtor Rocks to see impressive rooms, alcoves, tunnels and flights of stone steps carved into the rock by a local man almost three centuries ago, even a stone armchair!

The Bronze Age stone formation of Nine Ladies Stone Circle lies rests just outside of Stanton Lees, while the grand stately home of Haddon Hall with its Tudor hall and Elizabethan gardens is another great attraction.

Elton has one pub whilst just over a mile away is the charming village of Winster where you'll find a village shop and two pubs, with the Limestone Way, a long distance walking route spanning 46 miles, passing through the village.

Venture just outside of the Peak District and over to Matlock Bath where you'll find plenty more fascinating places like The Great Moss Cavern, Heights of Abraham, Matlock Bath Aquarium and Arcade and Gulliver's Kingdom.

Visit the picture-perfect town of Matlock for an afternoon treat at one of the cafés or tearooms before heading over to Bakewell to see the incredible Chatsworth House, used as Mr Darcy's Pemberley Estate in the 2013 adaption of Pride and Prejudice, this lavish stately home is a sight to behold and contains a notable art collection along with vast grounds and gardens to explore.

Watersporting fun can be enjoyed at Carsington Water in the warmer months, whilst plenty more walking and cycling awaits throughout the Peak District.

Spend a memorable break at Croft Cottage experiencing the natural beauty of Derbyshire.

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.
