We really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful village of Winster and had a fun week exploring the Peak District. The cottage was full of character and the sun room was a great place to relax with a book or a few board games whilst recovering from a busy day out. We were lucky enough to have some good weather too so got to enjoy the breathtaking views from the garden with a glass of wine in the early evening. The beds were comfortable and we loved the shower! However, we did feel the cottage needed a bit of TLC. There was a lot of mould in the bathroom. I had been looking forward to relaxing in the tub but the sight of all the mould on the wall facing me was rather off putting. The cottage also needed a thorough dust - there was a thick layer in quite a few easy to reach places. Also, the bedding in the main bedroom was fairly worn as were the towels. We did enjoy staying in the cottage though and would be happy to again/recommend to friends if it was in better condition.
The cottage is beautiful and can't really be faulted. Lots of kitchen utensils, very clean, plenty of board games and DVDs. Nicely decorated with amazing garden views overlooking the Peak District. The only thing slight downside to the cottage is the parking. As the house is at the top of a hill, the roads leading to the cottage are very narrow and there's not a lot of parking space. You'll have to do a 5 point turn to get out or reverse down the hill. It's ok during the week, as there's only a few other cars, but when the other holiday lets are occupied it can get busy. We found that the locals can get VERY funny and dictatorship with where you park.... so if you're a bit of a nervous driver or have a large vehicle I would advise to park at the Green which is round the back of the cottage (only a 1 minute walk).
What a beautiful little place this cottage is, and a lovely little town. The cottage is lovingly and carefully set up, with everything you could need, and has gorgeous views from the outside terrace. Very relaxing and peaceful. Winster is a great jump off point to explore the Peak District, and also has a couple of great pubs and lots of nice walks on the doorstep. We would definitely come again!
Fantastic from top to bottom beds extra comfy everything you need in kitchen brilliant cooker. The garden views that are amazing you can see for miles! You have walks straight off you door step winster itself in a lovely village with a local shop with everything in, will definitely be returned to the croft love it
Fabulous place to stay. Beautiful garden. The village was lovely, very friendly.
No real complaints but was a little suprised there was no tea or coffee supplies. Was handy having herbs to cook with though. Would definitely recommend!
