Situated next to the owners’ home, this delightfully-presented Grade II listed detached cottage sits in the centre of the lovely village of Winster, in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
This beautiful, stone-built property has a great sense of history, yet at the same time offers the warmth and taste of a top boutique hotel.
A perfect retreat for couples wishing to enjoy the very best the Peak District has to offer, both double bedrooms are beautifully furnished and spacious, and there are views to the parish church and grounds.
The stunning bathroom has a bath to soak away the aches and pains of a mammoth walk, or there is a large walk-in shower to invigorate you for the next mission.
There is a further room on this floor, which is ideal as a quiet reading room or additional dressing room.
The modern farmhouse-style kitchen, with Belfast sink, is a really lovely place to enjoy breakfast and discuss plans for the day, whether it’s to explore the conservation village of Winster, the nearby delights of Bakewell, Matlock and Chatsworth House or if feeling energetic, walk the Limestone Way or hire a bike and ride the Tissington Trail.
The sitting room with flag stone floor is an extremely comfortable place to slump into the high-quality sofa or leather armchair and gaze into the embers of the woodburning stove.
With so much going on all year, both on the doorstep and a little further afield, this beautiful cottage is a fantastic retreat to relax, or a wonderful base to get out and explore the Peak District.

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.
