Overview

About the property

Cottage in Winster, Peak District, Derbyshire Dales, England - Peaceful Location In Centre Of Village, Beautiful Views Over The Countryside, Footpaths On Doorstep

Beautifully renovated 1850s detached stone cottage, one minute walk to the local pub, countryside views from the garden, easily accessible to footpaths and cycle routes. Sleeps 4/5. We love staying in our cottage in Winster as it is such a relaxing place to be. We have furnished it to be comfortable and inviting. We also welcome well behaved pets - no extra charge. There is so much to do in this area - Chatsworth, Bakewell, Matlock - Heights of Abraham etc, before you even start exploring the exciting countryside around - the White Peak (where Winster is) and the easily accessible Dark Peak. We have enjoyed numerous country walks and cycles - particularly along the fabulous off-road cycle trails that Derbyshire has to offer - the Peak Trail and Tissington Trail are very near to Winster. It is also only 45 minutes drive to Alton Towers so easily accessible for a day out!

About Linda Moon

We are Linda and David and have two children and a mad English Springer spaniel called Sally. We have owned East Bank Cottage since 2010 and have had many enjoyable stays here.

Linda Moon purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Linda Moon chose Winster

Beautiful area, good central location. The village of Winster sold itself to us when we visited! It has a lovely feeling about it and is very friendly with great amenities such as the village shop and pubs.

Great location for enjoying outdoor pursuits - walking, cycling, rock climbing etc but also plenty of interesting places to visit: Heights of Abraham, Chatsworth, Crich tramway museum, Blue John Caves.

We have also enjoyed joining in the village activities: pancake race day, Winster wakes (annual carnival), secret gardens.

What makes this cottage unique

We find the village of Winster very welcoming and enjoy our stays here, whether it is a relaxing short stroll from the house, a more challenging hill walk, cycling the numerous off-road cycle tracks which are great for the children or enjoying the good fare in the Old Bowling Green. There are plenty of activities/places to visit which we have enjoyed such as Crich tramway museum where we love riding the old trams, Chatsworth, cable cars upto the Heights of Abraham or a day out for the kids at Gullivers Land.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second stay here, even better than the first! Loved the Monsal trail (hire bikes from Hassop station). Thanks for a lovely stay! The Bradburys



We have had a great time here, so much to do- got to come again...cottage is lovely, Winster great, loved both pubs and played 'you take the high road, I take the low road on the way back from the miners standard. Will definitely return! The Hunts



We've had a really lovely time at East Bank Cottage. It's a very comfortable cottage in a beautiful village. There is so much to do here, it's a great area and we'll definitely come back to explore some more soon. The Gillmans



What a perfect cottage in a beautiful setting. Just the break we all needed. Loads to do and lots to see. Thank you for sharing it with us. The Hicks family.

Great little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very well laid out little cottage. Nice bathroom. Good sized kitchen. Efficient heating system. My only complaint was that the duvets were thin and small and there seemed to be no blankets (apart from some throws downstairs) to compensate. A small investment in some better quality duvets and maybe some bedspreads or blankets too would help. I am quite tall and my feet stuck of the end. The kids said they were a bit cold too. Otherwise a great place to stay in a very nice village.

Lovely cottage in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at East Bank Cottage. The village was lovely and very friendly and, of course, the surrounding area was great for exploring.

Sadly, the week we chose was not the best of weather but this did not stop us enjoying exploring beautiful Derbyshire. Whatever the weather threw at us, we knew we had a lovely, comfortable cottage to come back to where we could relax indoors if we chose, rather than going out again for the evening.

Everything we needed was at hand in the cottage, the bedrooms were comfy, the lounge was lovely for relaxing and I especially enjoyed getting up early to read my book sitting by the window with a beautiful view down East Bank and into the distance.
