  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Dell."

    The cottage is charming, well maintained and well equipped. We couldn't fault it at all. The welcoming goodies on arrival were much appreciated! The Dell is in a secluded position, yet central to many of the tourist attractions in the area. There is a pleasant outdoor area with a summer house which we made full use of in the warm weather. We would certainly consider visiting again.

    No clear instructions as to how the heating was operated. A concise file with full details of“how to” for appliances, recycling and waste etc would be helpful. There were numerous user guides in the draw but a concise file would be better. We had to guess how to use the heating, electric stove was great though. We cannot fault the cleanliness, facilities or location. The cottage was great, loved the village and The Miners Standard for great beer and food. The Winster walk book was well used by us.

    The cottage was lovely, clean and warm and ticked all the boxes we had, a local pub, off road parking, and a excellent community shop in the village of Winster. We had to leave the blinds down on the bedroom outside door as there is a public footpath that passes by the door, which people accessed by walking along the drive to the cottage, rather than the designated footpath. It wasn’t a problem but a bit of a surprise when a group of about 12 ramblers walked past on Saturday afternoon. Colin and Carole Wareing 29.8.2022

    In the kitchen there was even cupboard space to put your own food/dry goods which was nice, and unusual in our experience of holiday cottages where the cupboards are generally rammed with kitchen items your never likely to use. The iron blew whilst we were there and the owner turned up that evening with a brand new one. There are OS maps and books available in the cottage if you plan to do any of the numerous walks/rambles in the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dell and it is ideally suited to exploring what the Peak District has to offer.

    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!

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.
