  • "Lovely, comfortable cottage in a peaceful location."

    Great walks nearby and the pub, which is within stumbling distance has a great menu for veggies and meat eaters alike. The village is very quaint with another pub and a shop, which considering the size of the village had everything we needed. The place was spotless and the welcome basket was a nice touch. Will be back!

    Had some issues with the shower. It always seemed to be either too hot or too cold. You couldn’t really get it to a comfortable temperature.

    Sorry to hear about the problem with the shower , it is brand new so will have it checked out , Thankyou for letting us know. Property Owner

    We don't normally go back to places we've been but will be making an exception for The Dell. As someone else observed, the photos don't do it justice. Would highly recommend. Thank you to Asa and Lisa for making this place available.

  • "The Dell is one of the best Sykes properties we have rented."

    The cottage is a real home from home, cosy, well equipped and in lovely surroundings. The village of Winster is beautiful, and everyone we met was really friendly and helpful, with a great community spirit. Mr. Cooper has made sure that the Dell is very welcoming, with everything you could need, and nice touches, welcome pack and fresh flowers. We hope to return very soon.

  • "We loved Winster and the position of the Dell was lovely but the setting amongst the tress was lovely."

    Some road noise but on the whole totally idyllic setting. The cottage was one of the best supplied ones we have been in. There wasn’t anything that wasn’t supplied and everything wears spotless and such good quality. There was only one disadvantage which was there was no door on the bedroom and because my husband gets up around 4.30 am when her can’t sleep he couldn’t put a light on without disturbing me. It probably wouldn’t bother any other couple with normal sleep patterns or at least ones that matched!

    Ended up asking man who lives next door to pub,this is obviously a regular occurrence.Some concerns about side door glass window due to path running next to cottage. Also the ' steps' leading to the road are quite difficult and prehaps a note about these needs adding.

    Ideal for couples. Secluded. Beautiful surroundings. Local village shop stocks everything you would need. The Miners pub is a stones throw up some steps from the cottage. Lovely towns of Bakewell. Matlock and Matlock Bath are only 10mins drive from the cottage. The cottage itself is lovely. Decorated to a very high standard but still retaining the rustic cottage feel. Open plan kitchen and living room is spacious and warmly at night. Would highly recommend

    It was spotless and clean and the added extras on arrival were a fantastic surprise. Homemade cake, fresh flowers, a tea tray all laid out with a packet of biscuits, a pint of milk and ice cubes in the freezer! It had everything we needed and more. The only thing I would say was that we had an email with the owners mobile number on to contact for the keysafe code which we left until the last minute, our fault, so I had to ring your customer service on the way. They were very helpful and gave me the number straight away as I couldn't get hold of the owner as signal is not always available. I would suggest that to make it easier if you know the code number then send it with the directions and the other info? The owner did also get back to me later on and was very helpful.

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.
