  • "Bright , clean and comfortable cottage."

    Unusual lay-out but it works really well. Have loved my stay there and will certainly consider another stay when in the Peak District. Wessel de Vries

  • "Beautiful small cottage, very clean and comfortable with everything you needed."

    The owners have put blood, sweat and tears into this cottage and it shows.. The area is perfect for walking and the village has a lovely little shop and plenty of nooks and crannies to wander about and explore. Two pubs to enjoy as well and very welcoming.. A great base to explore the peaks and a lovely cottage to come back too after a long days adventures.

  • "Great little cottage that makes really good use of its space, and in a perfect location for the Peak District for access to towns and trails nearby."

    Everything was very clean, with the kitchen and bathroom done to a high standard with everything provided that you would need (if you forgot anything). Also, finally a place that has a good sized tv to watch in the evenings (a lot of places we've stayed at seem to have TVs from the 90s). Parking wasn't an issue for us, as there was always spaces on the road right by the cottage. The only thing we noticed was disposing of the rubbish once we were leaving, as there are no bins outside the cottage, which didn't really bother us but it might for others. If you are a couple or on your own, I'd definitely recommend staying at The Hayloft and would happily book again if we visit the Peak District again.

  • "Lovely, beautifully appointed cottage with great facilities suitable for two guests."

    You are required to dispose of your household waste at end of stay because the cottage has no outside bins. A car makes that easy - you simply take it with you - but as cyclists that was a headache.

  • "We enjoyed a short stay during a very cold spell, whilst the bedroom was cold, the heating and electric blanket made up for that."

    The design makes use of the 3 floors really well, the layout is good and furnishings are of a very good standard. A very high quality little cottage well worth a stay, you have everything you need and we were very cosy and comfortable.

    It was a great location for us to explore some of the Peak District.

  • "We had a great time at The Hayloft."

    The cottage was perfect for the 2 of us and very warm and comfortable. The location in Winster was great, close by to a pub and shop, and a short walk and drive from local towns/ villages. The cottage itself was brilliant from top to bottom and very modern. I would definitely stay here again.

  • "It’s a lovely clean cottage and well equipped with everything you need."

    We enjoyed our time there very much. There are some lovely views as you look out from the front door. Laura and Tom were very helpful if we needed to ask anything. We’d like to thank them for the bottle of wine. Would highly recommend this cottage.

  • "It depends what you are looking for, but if it is a quiet break for two with access to the Derbyshire countryside, the Hayloft is ideal."

    It is basic, but there was everything we needed. Everything was clean and fresh and the owners had gone the extra mile in leaving us a bottle of wine. A perfect base for walking holidays and central enough to be a base for visits to popular attractions nearby. I had just come out of hospital and the path up to the Hayloft is quite steep, but we had a very enjoyable stay.. Parking was difficult, the road was very narrow and surprisingly busy in the morning, but the was a small car park not too far away from the accommodation. The owners deserve praise for converting a small property into ideal accommodation for holiday makers.

  • "The Hayloft is an excellent clean, comfortable property with great facilities!"

    It is situated in a pretty village with a shop and 2 good pubs. No issues with parking. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped there is even a double bin provided so we could separate rubbish from recycling. Laura very kindly left us milk, biscuits and a lovely bottle of wine. We were fortunate as cottage next door was empty so Laura let us use the decked area outside. We stayed at the property during the heatwave, it was a godsend bedroom was on the ground floor so cooler thus enabling us both to get a good nights sleep. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return in the future!

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.
