  • “The front room smelt strongly of urine so we bought air freshners.”

    No teatowels or oven gloves so you couldn't get stuff out the oven until we bought some. No wood on arrival to use and no heating so it was cold. We didn't arrive until 8pm so nowhere local to get wood. The seats outside had been left out so were wet and unusable. The sofa was heavily stained so we had to cover it to sit on it.

    Thank you for your feedback, I was most upset to hear about the smell on your arrival. We do allow guests' pets to stay in the cottage, but this is the first time in four years that anything like this has been reported. Please accept our apologies. The cottage is cleaned before the arrival of all guests, I can only surmise that the cleaner assumed all was in order before she left, only for it to prove more persistent. The cottage has now had a further, thorough clean since you kindly reported this issue and the problem has been addressed Sofa coverings are removed and cleaned immediately if they suffer a major stain, otherwise on a regular schedule, but this has proved difficult over the last few weeks as the cottage has been constantly occupied, We have arranged for the covers to be cleaned at the end of this week. Regarding heating, I'm sorry you found the cottage cold on your arrival, the heating settings had been changed by a previous guest, these have now been reset to the correct timings. Instructions for changing the heating settings are included in the handbook. Logs for the woodburner are not included in the price of the rental Property Owner

The property

A mid-terrace stone cottage located in the heart of Winster, a homely village with an abundance of characterful amenities resting on your doorstep.

Situated over three floors, this retreat takes you inside to a comfortable lounge, neutrally styled with two sofas and a woodburner promising a cosy night in.

A dining table is located to the back of the room, with seating for four people, and a window seat is a beautiful feature overlooking the charming village.

The modern kitchen provides all the amenities to prepare your favourite meals.

On a nice day, you can even enjoy refreshments in your own enclosed courtyard, a lovely little suntrap away from it all.

After a delightful day, wander upstairs to the super king-size double bedroom, an immaculate presentation with soft furnishings and a heart-warming ambience.

Take the stairs from here, and you will find a twin room, equally as pleasant, with fresh white bedding and characterful low ceilings.

The family bathroom completes the accommodation in a contemporary fashion.

The village of Winster is famous for its Morris dancers, Wakes festivities in June, and the Secret Gardens of Winster event in July.

There are also two pubs, both serving 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.

A perfect location all-season-round.

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.
