    The cottage was delightful, cosy and warm; owners were lovely. Everything needed was available and the cottage was well equipped including a veritable library of books, plenty of classical CDs and an assortment of games. However there is no washing machine. I was also disappointed that there was no garden attached to the cottage. This meant I couldn't settle down early in dressing gown on dark winter nights and had to get dressed again to take my dog out to relieve herself. Likewise in the ...
    The cottage was delightful, cosy and warm; owners were lovely. Everything needed was available and the cottage was well equipped including a veritable library of books, plenty of classical CDs and an assortment of games. However there is no washing machine. I was also disappointed that there was no garden attached to the cottage. This meant I couldn't settle down early in dressing gown on dark winter nights and had to get dressed again to take my dog out to relieve herself. Likewise in the morning. This was unclear in Sykes' listing. The photographs seemed to indicate there was a proper garden which for me is essential. Parking is about a hundred yards from the cottage and the walk down to it very steep. Not a problem for me but for someone elderly, unsteady on their feet or with breathing difficulties, it would be disastrous. I think the two points above should be made clear in the advertisement.

The property

This pretty, traditional detached cottage is in an elevated position above the village of Winster, just five minutes' walk from the village centre.

With charming original features including exposed beams and a feature fireplace, this 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 4' double 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.

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

WINSTER

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.
