  • "We loved our week long stay at Holly Cottage!"

    The cottage was set in a gorgeous location in the well served quaint village of Winster. We weren't prepared for all of the hills but the views were wonderful and we enjoyed many walks from the doorstep. The cottage was full of character and charm and was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The only slight issue we had was the garden was not fully enclosed on one side so our retriever tried his best to investigate this and we had to keep a good eye on him!! The log burner was great and so was the cosy sitting room and dining room. Beds were very comfy. We enjoyed delicious takeaways from the Bowling Green pub and also had a meal at the local Miners Standard pub. We would definitely return!!

  • "Holly Cottage is delightful, so cosy and charming!"

    We spent a lovely week there for Christmas. It’s well equipped for self catering and in a lovely location. Spotlessly clean and comfortable, would definitely return and recommend! The owner is really accommodating and so helpful with local information.

  • "We (and our dog) had a wonderful stay at Holly cottage!"

    The cottage itself is warm, spacious and very comfortable, with everything you could need, and the log fire was perfect for our stay, as the weather turned chillier (we even had a little snow!). The village is quiet and peaceful, with some lovely walks from the doorstep and is very conveniently located for travelling around the Peak District. Great communication from the owners, with clear directions for arrival and a guest book with comprehensive instructions for all of the amenities in the cottage and a very quick reply by text when we had a question. It was a fab experience all round and we would love to visit again.

  • "We had such a lovely stay at Holly cottage."

    It was so clean and the log fire made it so cosy. The owners left basic provisions for us on our arrival, which was a big help. Literally everything was thought off to make our stay feel like home from home. They have 2 dedicated parking spaces which is great. We just loved the village of Winster, it’s so cute. There are a couple of pubs and a shop in the village. With an added bonus of being quite close to Chatsworth / Bakewell and many more places to visit. Please try this property - you won’t be disappointed.

    Thank you Carla for your lovely review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at Holly Cottage and the local area. We hope to host you again sometime. Property Owner

  • "Holly is a gorgeous stone cottage, situated in the picturesque village of Winster in the Peak District."

    It’s cosy and has everything you need with really comfortable beds, we slept so well! Winster makes all of the joys of the Peak District easily accessible. We loved biking the High Peak and Tissington Trail loop and the trail head was just a 10 minute drive from the cottage. There are also beautiful walks with stunning views right from the doorstep. The guest book was really helpful with easy instructions to find good walks. Top this off with dog friendliness and an open fire and you have the perfect cottage! Thank you for a wonderful stay and we can’t wait to come back

    Thank you so much Laura for your lovely review. We look forward to hosting you again. Property Owner

    Loverly cottage very clean bed very comfortable we enjoyed our stay only thing was the back steps up to garden very steep and slippery went out front and wallked round to back on road

    Thank you James for letting us know they had become slippery. Scrubbing the steps is usually a September job but I appreciate that with all the summer rain we have had, it needed to be done earlier. Without you telling us, there would still be a few weeks before they would 'normally' be cleaned. So thank you for the feedback. I only wish you had let me know whilst you were there and we could have had them cleaned and sorted so you would not have been inconvenienced walking around to the front. The steps were scrubbed at the weekend and so both front and back lichen free. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is exactly as described and the location and views are lovely."

    The cottage is well equipped, beds were comfortable etc directions were helpful. Right to emphasize the steepness of stairs to back garden. Challenging for us and elderly dog. One small point. No clear instructions on what to do with rubbish or collection days. Previous tenants left a large bag in front garden which was still there when we left. But lovely stay , good walks, sunny skies. We hope to come again.

    Thank you for the feedback and for our highlighting our lack of information regarding the rubbish collection. I apologise I will check our information guide, make sure it is clearer and will also mention it in our pre-arrival documentation. The rubbish collection is deemed Trade waste as its a holiday let, and as such is supposed to be collected by Darley Dale Council on a Wednesday. A service for which we pay. I will follow this up with the Council as it should have been collected. Property Owner

  • "We had an excellent week at Holly Cottage."

    The cottage was clean, cosy and comfortable and an excellent base for a winter holiday. Whatever problems existed for the previous booking, have been dealt with and we all enjoyed our stay. It is an old cottage, it’s quirks are more charming than annoying and a summer stay would also include the use of a rather nice garden (a bit chilly in February, so largely unused this trip). Parking outside the cottage is a bit of a lottery, but we managed to unload and load there and then the owners provide a space a two-minute’s walk up the hill, so it’s not a problem. Winster itself is a lovely village to stay in - we were here in a different cottage last year and came back for a second trip. It’s excellent for walks – you can simply walk out the front door and be in the countryside a couple of minutes later. And it also has a very good village store too. Bakewell is about 15 minutes away, for shops and supermarkets, but mostly we spent the week exploring the myriad of footpaths that run out of the village.

  • "Our stay over Christmas at Holly Cottage was mixed."

    The cottage itself is in a beautiful village of Winster with its two friendly pubs and a very handy Community Shop run by helpful and friendly volunteers, such assets for the village. Holly Cottage itself was nicely decorated downstairs for Christmas. Unfortunately our stay was marred by the fact that the cottage was not very clean, there were cobwebs hanging from the ceiling in the bedroom, the bathroom was not very hygienic - the plughole in particular was disgusting. The bedroom that had two beds pushed together had a very thin sheet on the bed and no mattress cover which I found very unhygienic. Also the outer wall in this bedroom was very damp and wet. The cooker door did not shut properly which bearing in mind I was cooking Christmas lunch was a bit annoying. I am told by Sykes that I should have complained at the time even though it was the Christmas break and bank holidays and that the issues would have been remedied! So this is advice for all future users - make sure you report the issues at the time. The owner on hearing of the issues following my initial particularly around the cleanliness of the property emailed me and I quote "was sorry to read that the cleanliness of the cottage was not up to standard. I have not been pleased with the company I have been employing for cleaning/laundry and as a result have a new company starting on Monday". This in my view is an acknowledgement that there were and had been issues with cleanliness at Holly Cottage. Its a shame it spoilt what was our first Christmas away from home for nearly 20 years.

    As we have said, we were having problems with our cleaners sufficient that we have engaged a new cleaning company. Our issues were with regard to the replenishment of stocks such as tea towels, dishwasher tablets, wood, kindling etc and at no point has anyone suggested any concerns with cleanliness. We were required to give the old company one months’ notice and we had hoped that in this period they would have continued to service the property in a professional manner. However it appears they let us down again, and unfortunately we were unaware there were any problems until a few days after the guests had left. This meant we were unable to deal with any concerns they had at the time. Property Owner

    Family of 4 and a dog. Had a lovely week. Cottage was well equipped and comfortable. Handy parking at rear of cottage. Local shop was well stocked. (Aldi is 15mins away). Great location for visiting the White Peak area. We walked, hired Kayaks at Carsington Water, Cycle hire on the Monsal Trail at Hassop Station, Cheedale stepping stones walk, Stanton Moor, Youlgreave outdoor swimming and more. I found the local walk book (written by local resident) really helpful for 1-2 hour walks from the village - great for walking the dog (there are a few copies in the cottage). Be aware that the pub just down from the village is only open at weekends, but the Miners Standard is open all week and was really friendly. Beautiful area and will be back.

Perfect location for visiting various places - Chatsworth House and Farm Shop is a must, Dovedale, Ashbourne, Matlock. So many walks from your doorstep. Sunday roast at the Bowling Green Pub was excellent!

    The living room is comfortable and spacious with fantastic views across the Peak District. The kitchen is clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The bathroom is good with a lovely rainwater shower, lots of hot water and good water pressure. Beds are comfortable and there is plenty of storage space. The steps to the garden are (as listed) steep but the garden itself is large and has beautiful views. Beyond this the two parking spaces are large and easily accessed. The village of Winster is one of the best we've stayed in with two pubs, a village shop, lots of friendly people and more walking routes than anyone could need. Within 15 minutes you can drive to Matlock (with great facilities including some amazing take-aways) and Bakewell. Hard to find a better spot to explore the Peak District.

    The cottage’s location is characterful and superb, with a great vista down into the village from the front of the house and stunning views from the terraced back garden.The facilities were good, the atmosphere relaxed and comfortable and the house information very detailed - we took advantage of the fantastic walks direct from the house, which were great for the dog. Winster itself is a very attractive village, with a great shop and two friendly pubs. The only drawback is that the pub closest to the cottage doesn’t open on Monday and Tuesday and only serves food Thursday to Sunday lunchtime. But it is a small, quiet and peaceful village so I guess it just doesn’t make economic sense to open every day. Having said that, we went for a drink on Wednesday evening and they were offering free nibbles of sausage rolls, chips and garlic bread - which you certainly won’t find in many pubs! We had a great stay and would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

    The brochure did mention that there was only one combined toilet/bathroom, however sharing a toilet/bathroom is inconvenient/awkward when 6 people are occupying the property. It would help if there was a toilet separate to the bathroom when 6 people are in residence. The front door (a barn door with a separate upper and lower opening) was double-bolted (above and below) when we arrived on the Friday, which meant we could only access the property through the rear entrance; we then had to unlock the front door from the inside. It is advisable to warn guests about the low ceiling/step between the kitchen and the dining area. One of our guests banged his head twice when carrying utensils/food from the kitchen up to the dining table.

The property has fridge, microwave, oven etc, and all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans you might need. There’s a large dining-room, and a very large lounge with tv, dvd player and a good selection of dvds from children’s to action movies.

This is a truly delightful cottage with tasteful decor, original character features and all of the comforts (and practicalities) of home. Jo provides an excellent welcome pack, full of useful local information. The cottage is well equipped and immaculately clean. The beds were really comfortable and all of the towels and linen were of good quality. Holly Cottage is clearly loved and looked after! We had a lovely meal in the Bowling Green pub, a mere stones throw from the cottage. There's plenty to see and do and we visited Bakewell and Matlock Bath on our whistle-stop tour of Derbyshire. The scenery is stunning, as is the architecture (both of Winster village and further afield). The local village store is really well stocked and run by volunteers, who were friendly and helpful. We strolled down the road for firewood and supplies and had a lovely chat with a local chap about his Land Rover. It's clearly a lovely community in a sleepy, (very) old village. We highly recommend this charming cottage either as a cosy retreat or a base for your holiday. Our only disappointment was that in late February, with the Beast from the East heading inland, we were unable to enjoy the fabulous garden to the rear of the property. That's definitely a summer sport! Thanks again to Jo and family, we had a fabulous time in your beautiful cottage. Caroline and Tim, Haworth, West Yorkshire.

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.
