"Everything was perfect and in such a perfect spot."
"Thank you for a very welcome stay in The Dell where we enjoyed our week in Winster and the surrounding area."
The fishing permit for the river Derwent, that came with the cottage, was very handy. It would be nice to return to The Dell in the future.
"Absolutely fantastic cosy cottage in an absolutely fantastic private and beautiful location."
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.
"It was a lovely cottage to stay in."
Nice and quiet with a good pubs close by. We enjoyed our stay and would proberly use it again.
"We really enjoyed our stay the cottage is well equipped and the pictures on the Sykes website don’t do it justice."
It is a lot nicer inside. Loved the goodies and the flowers. A new nice touch. Would definitely recommend and go back.
"The Dell is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the surrounding Peak District."
The cottage is extremely comfortable and cosy. It was also spotlessly clean throughout. I would recommend it to friends and family.
"Lovely clean cosy cottage would definitely recommend"
"Lovely, comfortable and quaint cottage in brilliant position for walking and visiting nearby towns."
"Lovely cottage, exceptionally clean."
Certainly a little gem of a cottage. We had a lovely week at The Dell.
"You need to surply a lid to cover the frying pan when cooking to help you stop the mess"
"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!
"The cottage name is apt plus being quiet and peaceful and well situated in order to visit and explore the Peak/Dales District tourist area."
The cottage is very well equipped and tastefully decorated and furnished and found to be spotlessly clean. The Welcome Gift items were much appreciated - Thank you. Would certainly stay there again in the future.
"Signage to cottage needs reviewing as its virtually impossible to see the footpath sign and we drove past it."
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.
"Attention to detail was absolutely amazing."
Fantastic place to stay and highly recommend it. Lovely welcoming package was a real treat and very welcome extra.
"2nd time we have stayed at this beautiful cottage."
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
"The Dell was extremely well found and very cosy."
It was very peaceful and secluded. There was a high standard of cleanliness. The cottage was slightly difficult to find.
"An outstanding property in a fantastic location with a pub just a few steps away."
A brilliant location to explore the Peak District.
"Very high spec interior."
The welcome pack was a lovely idea and especially the fresh flowers. Very good attention to detail. The cottage is in a nice quiet location which made for a very relaxing break.
"Beautiful cottage and surroundings."
Lovely welcoming pack with cheeses and the most devine home made victoria sandwich cake Everything was immaculate coudnt fault a thing.
"This is a perfect little hideaway place."
Great walks on the doorstep, two good pubs within easy walking distance, we’ll-stocked village shop in a very picturesque village setting. The cottage is cosy and warm and we had a lovely relaxing stay.
"The charming cottage, peaceful environment, lovely village (like going back in time) friendly people and the Bowling Green pub was very good."
"No it was all very easy."
The owners had decorated well and thought about storage areas. Great welcome gifts.
"We particularly enjoyed the seclusion and setting of the cottage and the attention to detail was exceptional."
The cottage was beautifully clean and had everything we needed and more.The tea, biscuits and home made cake and biscuit were a really lovely touch. The layout of the cottage functioned well and the quirky touches like the upstairs bedroom having a door to the outside, from which you could then walk back down a !little path and get back to the cottage front door downstairs. Would definitely recommend the cottage and the key collection process worked perfectly.
"Lovely cottage very clean."
We had a lovely week very good base lots of walking on your doorstep. Bathroom a little small for us but apart from that it was lovely.
"My partner and I stayed at the Dell from 21st till 28th June and found it spotlessly clean and comfortable, It had everything we needed although we felt it could do with a shelf in the shower for soap and shampoo, but apart from that it was excellent."
The owners left us a delicious sponge cake, packet of biscuits and flowers which is a lovely touch. We had a lovely week and would recommend visiting Chatsworth House which is gorgeous. We thoroughly recommend the Dell.
"We spent a week in the Dell and loved it despite the awful weather."
Never stayed in such a beautiful spotlessly clean cottage in such beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed watching the family of squirrels and the pheasants in the garden in a morning, and boy, could the squirrels shift the peanuts we fed them! We also very much appreciated the welcome gifts of cake,biscuits and milk etc. They were really enjoyed. We certainly would recommend a break in the Dell to anyone.
"Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean, all the facilities you need, fantastic location for exploring the peak district, two pubs within walking distance."
"Very comfortable (in good weather - assume it’s similar when weather is not so clement)."
Generous hosts. We did not meet them, but we found the cottage well-equipped, and the welcome ‘pack’ was extremely generous.
"Great location for walking in this area."
"Lovely little cottage in a great location."
Pub across the road did decent pub food and a good pint with a lively atmosphere.
"The Dell is a fantastic, secluded little cottage perfect for two people to explore the Peak District."
We couldn't fault it or the location and wished we'd stayed longer.
"A well equipped cosy cottage, ideally situated at the top end of the village and just next to the pub."
Winster is convenient for exploring the lower half or the Peak District
"Ideal cottage for a couple, everything you need, situated in a quiet spot at the edge of the charming village of Winster."
A really good location for seeing the lovely places of interest close by.
"Fantastic cosy little cottage,everything was perfect ( even the weather)!"
Heaven for long walks/runs,Winster village was lovely so was near by towns Matlock,Ashbourne - heaven for antique shoppers!! Owners left a delicious cake,biscuits and milk - very thoughtful! Had a fantastic time,will definitely recommend The Dell cottage to all my friends..
"The cottage is in a beautiful setting."
It’s isolated but within easy access to the village which makes it an ideal romantic setting. Inside is immaculate and has everything you need. The homemade cake, biscuits, milk with tea and coffee was a lovely touch, as were the flowers. Everything to make it a home from home. Would definately recommend.
"The Dell cottage is in very picturesque spot even the winter we were there later November."
It feels very isolated and private in its position but being only a couple of minutes to a friendly pub and shop. I would highly recommend this cottage for a short or long break break it’s postion is ideal for tourist and ramblers a like
"Lovely little cottage, very well appointed, in a beautiful setting close to local amenities, would love to actually live here permanently."
lovely to arrive at cottage to find a welcome basket to enable us to settle in. The home baked Victoria sponge was to die for!
"Even though our let was only for a weekend, the owners had left a delicious sponge, milk and biscuits for us on arrival and placed a vase of flowers on the coffee table."
A nice touch. We felt truly welcome.
"This property was one of the best we have ever stayed in."
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.
"Absolutely delightful cottage."
Very well equipped, modern, clean, pretty comfortable, cosy.... I could go on!
"Excellent holiday, as always."
Very well situated - secluded and private setting on outskirts of picturesque village but close to many places of interest in lovely area. High-quality cottage, well equipped and beautifully decorated.
"We were very impressed by this lovely cottage."
It has everything you could possibly need. The large cake they had left for us was the best we have ever tasted. (Victoria sponge}. There were fresh flowers, and even a pint of milk in the fridge, and tea coffee & sugar to get us started. The area is central for lots of lovely walks, and the scenery was lovely. Lots of history in the village. would come again.
"'The Dell' was exceptionally clean and well presented."
I would also like to add that there were a number of 'nice touches' (such as a home made Victoria Sponge awaiting us). I would thoroughly recommend this property.
"The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard."
It was spotlessly clean with everything provided including maps and pamphlets etc. Thoughtful extras by Mr & Mrs COOPER by way of home made cake, flowers etc. Other Holiday Home owners could learn from their example. It is in a quiet and peaceful location on the edge of a lovely village. The nearest local pub just two minutes walk from the door. Many walks from the cottage and nearby. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
"We felt that the cottage was very well located for visiting the surrounding attractions such as Dovedale, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth."
"Great little cottage in."
Fantastic location for walking. The homemade cake provide by the owner kept us going all week, and was delicious.
Secluded but not isolated. A lovely garden where we sat in the sunshine and watched the birds and squirrels. The cottage is spotlessly clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished with a well equipt kitchen and a small but modern bathroom. The owner went out of her way to make us welcome with beautiful home made cakes, fresh flowers and biscuits. We have stayed in many cottages all over the British Isles, usually through Sykes and we are used to the high standards set by this company however, this has been the best.
"Really enjoyed our stay here."
The cottage was beautiful with lovely little homely touches such as a homemade cake, biscuits and flowers. The cottage had modern facilities and was very clean.
"Great holiday cottage, warm, cosy, very well presented and well equipped."
"I enjoyed everything apart from the lack of places to eat in Winster."
There was only one pub where food might have been available but we chose to drive to Bakewell as that pub didn`t seem very inviting.This meant no glass of wine with my meal unfortunately !!!! .Otherwise loved the break. john
"The cottage and its location and setting."

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.
