  • “Lovely cottage, very comfortable and clean, well-equipped.”

    - Dougal, August 2021

About the property

A lovely, chocolate box cottage in the centre of the beautiful conservation village of Winster.

This charming cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends and retains many of its original features, such as exposed beams and stone fireplace but also has a contemporary twist with its boutique-style décor and furnishings.

The bedrooms are all very tastefully decorated with added quirky soft furnishings and lovely deep stone windows, giving a light, pleasant feel to the rooms.

The modern, stylish bathroom has everything you need to relax after a long day of outdoor activities.

A delightful sitting room, featuring a woodburning stove with deep stone surround and comfy sofas, gives a lovely cottage feel, making a perfect place to sit back and chill out with your favourite tipple in the evenings.

There’s a fully-equipped kitchen, complete with quarry tile-style flooring, and interesting features such as exposed stone around the lovely deep window, giving lots of natural light.

It’s a perfect place to cook a lovely dinner or hearty breakfast and then eat together in the farmhouse-style dining room.

Outside is a good-sized garden with views of the beautiful surrounding hills with patio furniture, making this a great place for some alfresco dining while taking in the stunning scenery, perfect for letting the kids play and run off any extra energy!

Winster is a charming and interesting old village, built in pale limestone, creamy sandstone and dark gritstone.

Surrounded by glorious scenery, there are two pubs providing home-cooked food and traditional ales, a general store and a Post Office.

The Limestone Way footpath passes close by and there are many good routes for ramblers.

For some history and exploring, Matlock Bath, Bakewell, Chatsworth House and the High Peak Caverns are all a short drive away, making this an ideal year-round destination.

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.
