  • "A lovely cosy and very clean cottage in a great location looking down on the delightful village of Winster."

The property

This pretty, traditional detached cottage, Rock Cottage, is in an elevated position above the village of Winster, just a short distance from the village centre.

With charming original features including exposed beams and a feature fireplace, Rock Cottage is a fantastic base for couples or a small family.

The lovely kitchen has everything you will need during your stay and from here there is one step down to the comfortable sitting room.

Here there is a warming electric coal-effect fire and exposed beams which creates a homely atmosphere.

Tucked away at the end of this room is a dining area where you will also find a selection of books and local guides.

This is a great place to spread the maps out and make plans for your holiday in the Peak District.

Upstairs, the main bedroom has a delightful fireplace and both this and the second single room have stunning views out across the church to the surrounding countryside.

To the side of the cottage is a surprisingly secluded patio area which has a dining set so you can enjoy your alfresco breakfast or dinner within the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings.

There are a number of shops, pubs and attractions in the heart of Winster including the National Trust's Market Hall.

For walkers, the Limestone Way runs alongside the cottage, Stanton Moor Peak is close by, the Tissington and High Peak Trails are ideal for cyclists and climbers can try out Robin Hood's Stride.

Head to Matlock, where you can take in the stunning views at the top of the Pic Tor War Memorial, hop aboard a vintage steam train as you ride the Peak Rail, or see the sights in an alpine-style cable car at the Heights of Abraham, where you can explore caverns and a fossil museum.

Be sure to visit the picturesque market town of Bakewell, where you will find the historic Bakewell Bridge, The Old House Museum and of course, the Bakewell Pudding!

With a fantastic selection of National Trust properties, pretty market towns and villages and picturesque landscapes, this is an ideal location for exploring the Peak District.

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.
