About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 2 Living Rooms, Views of Winster and Derbyshire Peaks from Pretty Walled Garden. Close to Pubs and Stores.

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.
