    “Perfect venue for a family gathering”

    Booked this house as it was equidistant for all the family. With plenty of bedrooms plus multiple bed configurations, this house easily accommodated our group of 14 plus dog. We spent most of our time either in the dining room, the stove providing a cosy atmosphere, or the comfortable lounge on the first floor. The kitchen was well equipped with good quality crockery and glassware and the combination of the aga plus two electric ovens made cooking the three course dinner on the Saturday night ...

    Booked this house as it was equidistant for all the family. With plenty of bedrooms plus multiple bed configurations, this house easily accommodated our group of 14 plus dog. We spent most of our time either in the dining room, the stove providing a cosy atmosphere, or the comfortable lounge on the first floor. The kitchen was well equipped with good quality crockery and glassware and the combination of the aga plus two electric ovens made cooking the three course dinner on the Saturday night a doddle. Beware though if you are not familiar with cooking on an aga. The oven gloves provided are adequate for using the electric ovens but too flimsy and thin to protect against the high temperatures of the aga. We used the felt gloves from the stove to avoid any nasty burns! The house was immaculately clean with a small range of toiletries in the bathrooms and plenty of towels. The fixtures and fittings are of a high standard and all the bedrooms are individually decorated and finished with complimentary cushions and throws. It wasn’t initially obvious from looking at the layout plans but the ground floor bedroom is accessed from the dining room and the bathroom that services this room is located adjacent to the bedroom but accessed from an inner hall off the dining room. This meant the occupants had to pass through the dnining room to reach their bathroom in the mornings. We were all family so it was amusing to see Grandad passing through in his pyjamas, but this may not be quite so funny if you were not related. It’s a shame because this is one of the nicest rooms with a sitting area and fireplace. Lastly, the drive immediately in front of the hall is the off road parking area for 5 cars. Our party consisted of two 4x4s plus a saloon car and, as there were cars parked on the road and the gates are very narrow, we only managed to get the saloon onto the drive, the angles being too tight. It wasn’t too much of a problem as there were spaces on the road all weekend although it was a bit of a palaver upon arrival, ferrying all our stuff across the road. On the whole we had a great weekend. Thank you to the housekeeper for our welcome gifts. A silver tray was on the dining room table with a bottle of fizz, a balloon and a delicious carrot cake; a nice touch as it was a birthday celebration.

The property

A stunning Grade II listed country house, built by Francis Moore in 1628, set in its own beautiful grounds in the middle of the conservation village of Winster, in the Peak District National Park.

Occupied by the Moore family in the 17th century, the Hall later became a Coaching House and Inn, and in the 19th century, Llewellyn Jewitt, a local antiquary, occupied the Hall and his gravestone can be found in the local church cemetery.

Set over three floors, the Hall stands back from the main street behind the original stone-built gateway.

As befits a country home of this grandeur, the building is full of rich history, character and charm, and provides ideal holiday accommodation for friends and family to get away from it all and enjoy this majestic and historic home.

This superb Derbyshire holiday home boasts many original features including quoins, a cornice topped by a parapet, a beautiful balustrade, ornate ceilings and beautiful fireplaces.

Providing spacious accommodation, the ground floor offers a spacious dining room with a cosy sitting area with a large open fire and a beautiful hand-painted ceiling.

The spacious, adjoining kitchen is well equipped and leads to a delightful conservatory area, great for dining in the summer, while a ground floor bedroom provides flexibility for the less able guests in the party.

The wide, elegant staircase leads to the first floor, where there are two spacious bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms and one with a romantic four poster bed.

The wonderful first floor sitting room is one of the real jewels in the crown; with feature windows on two sides providing a bright and spacious feel, as well as interesting views of the main high street, it provides a perfect space to relax and unwind, enjoy a family film or get out the board games.

The top floor of this wonderful Derbyshire holiday home boasts a further four bedrooms, including a stunning master bedroom with king-size four poster bed.

This wonderful Derbyshire home has the added benefit of a walled garden, formal gardens and a delightful courtyard; spend some time over breakfast in the courtyard area as you plan the day’s activities.

The large summerhouse contains the various games on offer to add to your enjoyment of the garden.

The conservation village of Winster boasts a well-stocked village shop and cafe as well as two excellent pubs, and is home to a 17th century Market House which is owned by the National Trust.

Matlock, Bakewell and Chatsworth House are close by, as well as magnificent walks from the doorstep.

Experience country living at its finest in this truly wonderful holiday home.

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.
