Professionally renovated to exceptional standards, Peak Cottage in the picturesque village of Winster combines antiquity with 21st century living. Set on four different levels, originally 2 miners cottages, they've been joined together to provide ideal accommodation for two couples or a family group. There are spacious communal areas to enjoy but also quiet places to retreat to. A combi boiler provides central heating and hot water on demand. In the main living areas there are, not one, but two wood burning stoves, each with a complimentary basket of logs. Two flat screen TV’s and wi-fi to keep you connected. Outside, from the seating area, there are beautiful views of Winster village and the rolling hills of the Peak District offering an array of walks starting, right there, on your doorstep. A few minutes drive finds Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Matlock, Matlock Bath and Carsington Water.
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 2 Living Rooms, Views of Winster and Derbyshire Peaks from Pretty Walled Garden. Close to Pubs and Stores.

Quirky is definitely the correct description, for these tastefully fully refurbished cottages.
We stayed for 4 days and had a marvelous time, the Peak District is all we expected and the property is comfortable and surprisingly spacious. It is quirky as the planning rules have obviously insisted that the original layout is retained externally, but inside all is new and modern, but with a strange layout of steps and doors, but great fun.
We were showing an Australian the Peak District which we haven't visited ourselves for over 10 years. So we visited Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Castleton, Bakewell, Buxton, Matlock, Frogetts Edge, Hathersage and innumerable villages in between, so much to do and see.
Winster is well positioned and we had a wonderful time
Nicely done up, cosy accomodation. parking very tricky as we'd been warned. Had to run a duster over the bedheads, and a few places
Lovely house - but cold!
We thought the house was lovely and enjoyed our stay. However, we did think it was a bit tight not to provide more fuel for the stove, with it being so cold. There was only enough for one evening (at a push). Add to that the fact that the heating control had been taped over, so we couldn't boost the radiators either. It would be worth bearing in mind, as it was annoying having to go to the village shop to keep buying more logs. One other note - when people book, it might be worth mentioning that if they would like to eat in the pub, it needs to be booked ahead - and a phone number provided. They were fully booked on Saturday night. Hope this helps. Becky Bond
We were sorry to hear you found the cottage cold, particularly regarding the central heating. The instruction on the tape asks guests not to alter the programming, but you can adjust the temperature to your liking. In addition to the heating, a basket of logs is provided for each of the two wood burners.
With regard to restaurant bookings, Saturday evening is always popular whatever the destination, so it is advisable, once you have made your choice, to book ahead. We do mention this on our listing.
We had a delightful stay in the cottage over New Year. It was warm, cosy and ideal for 4 adults. Waking up on our first morning to snow all around was magical and made for an exciting slide down the hill to the Old Bowling Green pub where we had an excellent meal. We will definitely be back to sample a different season.
Amazingly quirky and welcoming.
Just returned from a 3 night stay in peak cottage and had an amazing time. The kids loved the split levels and the cottage had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage was immaculate. I would definately recommend this property.
Great cottage,fully equipped with everything we needed.
Cosy cottage,well equipped for our stay.
