  • "Pump cottage was lovely accommodation, but was slightly let down with one issue."

    The cottage is a 3 bedroom house which probably means when in use it will probably have at least 2 adults and 2 children as a general average. It's in the Peak District and it rains a lot. The cottage does not have a washing machine which was not really advertised very well, we were informed what was in the cottage, not what wasn't. We stayed for a week and just about got away with it, any families on a 2 week stay would really struggle. All that said, we loved the cottage and had a great(but damp) week.

  • "Very cosy , characterful cottage in a lovely location."

    However, although it sleeps 6 people this makes the accommodation quite cramped. The details state that there is a sitting room with a dining area, but there is not a separate dining area and to sit 6 people around the table leaves very little room to move. We were also disappointed by only being supplied with a few logs for the fire, only 1 undersized towel per person, only 1 normal sized teatowel and 1 tiny teatowel and only 2 black bags for rubbish: all of which were inadequate for 5 people for a week's stay.

  • "A great little cottage with everything provided by the owners, a home from home, and in a lovely village with two pubs, both serving food."

    The cottage is in a fabulous location for visiting Chatsworth and Bakewell too. Would definitely return.

  • "The cottage was very quaint but really too small for 6."

    The mattress in the attic was very uncomfortable. The place could do with a good clean. Not up to the standard expected.

  • "Pump Cottage is a cosy and characterful little cottage which sits on narrow lane in the centre of Winster."

    The useful and friendly village shop is 20 metres from the front door and the better of the two village pubs is another 20 metres away (beware: the pub is closed Mondays and Tuesdays). There are nice walks straight from the front door. The cottage can sleep 6 in 3 bedrooms. We were 2 adults and 4 children which was fine but it would probably be a bit too cramped for 6 adults. A wood burning stove in the living cum dining room works well and adds to the cosy charm. The compact kitchen was well stocked with utensils and worked well. The living room converts into a dining room when the folding dining table is extended and the room is a nice spot to relax at the end of a day’s walking. But it is compact so wouldn’t work so well if a larger party was intending to spend a lot of time indoors. The owner was very helpful and was kind enough to leave wood for the fire. The cottage makes a great base for exploring the Peak District and has a lovely vibe. We would definitely consider returning.

    Is quite small and quaint. But more reference to this should be made on booking as we have a few rather tall family members who struggled

Set over three floors with exposed beams and lintels, this lovely little Winster cottage also offers a warming woodburning stove in the sitting room to relax in front of after a day of walks.

Outside this Derbyshire cottage is a delightful enclosed courtyard garden to enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of wine!

The conservation village of Winster boasts a well-stocked community village shop and cafe as well as two excellent pubs, a lovely children's playground, just one minute’s walk away, and is home to a 17th century Market House which is owned by the National Trust.

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.
