About Anna Youngs
Anna and Dave Youngs are the owners of Chimney Cottage and extend a very warm welcome to you. We have three young children and have always loved the beauty, peacefulness and accessibility of the Peak District, as well as plenty of opportunity for adventure and fun. It is an ideal place for exploring the countryside and finding a quaint, English pub nearby to rest in afterwards! There is so much to do, or so little to do depending on how you feel. Relaxing in the peaceful cottage, in the quiet and friendly village of Winster, feels like home. We hope you think so too!
Why Anna Youngs chose Winster
We love the quirkiness and the cosiness of the cottage, with its traditional features and beautiful views.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage has stunning views to enjoy as you sit by the cosy fire! It is a unique village with lots of passages to explore and not much traffic. Everyone is very friendly and helpful, with two pubs, a park, local walks and a village shop, plus local events, give it a special community feel.

A lovely cosy, quiet stay with fabulous views
Chimney cottage is in a great location (once you've got used to driving up those narrow lanes!).
Winster is a lovely village, well located for walks. The village shop is excellent and well stocked so we didn't need to do any long supermarket treks for supplies.
The owners have provided most things to make it a very comfortable stay. Having two separate sitting rooms is a nice bonus and the kitchen and dining area is lovely and spacious.
It is a traditionally built cottage - with some of the issues that are normal for a cottage of that age and construction (some damp in the walls and draughts from the windows and door when it's blowy outside). But don't let that put you off as the owners have installed very efficient central heating with plenty of large radiators to keep the place nice and cosy. There's also a nice powerful, hot shower too.
Hope you enjoy your stay there as much as we did.
Charming cosy cottage with great views. Very comfortable and well equipped.
Chimney cottage is in the delightful village of Winster. We stayed there for Christmas with our daughter and son in law and enjoyed walks from the cottage over the Peak District national park. We cooked our Christmas dinner in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed relaxing in the living rooms. The cottage is warm and clean and the Christmas tree was a nice surprise. There are wonderful views from the main bedroom looking over the Derbyshire landscape. The cottage is a short walk up the hill from the centre of Winster, which has a very handy community shop that stocks most things and is open every day.
Well equipped lovely cottage in great location
Really great place for our short half-term family break. Cottage was great. Cosy, well kitted out - kitchen, toys, baby stuff, etc. Loved having a kids living room and a grown-up living room with real character.
Very cosy cottage
Cottage was very cosy and set in a beautiful location with easy access to the local attractions.
Idyllic location; stunning views!
This is a beautiful, traditionally decorated cottage in a great location in the Peaks. Numerous walks, of all levels of challenge, begin either in the village or very close by. In addition, it is close to Bakewell, Chatsworth and other popular tourist attractions. Inside it has an excellent mix of character charm and modern amenities with a sheltered terrace garden from which you can enjoy the amazing views. As a bonus, the village has The Bowling Green pub, offering mouth watering home cooked meals and a community owned convenience store manned predominantly by very helpful volunteers. We would definitely go back!
Thanks Gerry, we are glad you had such a lovely time.
