The Experience

With seven elegant bedrooms and fabulous Peak District views, this Grade-II listed house is a brilliant country retreat for families or groups of friends. Built in 1628, it still makes a grand first impression almost 400 years later. Off street parking is available, and although the owners don’t live onsite they keep guests well informed before arrival. Step into a stone-floored dining room designed for feasts with a table seating up to 16 next to a wood-burner in a large stone fireplace – make sure you glance up to admire the painted ceiling. Leading off the dining room is a smart, well-equipped kitchen with a gas Aga, and a conservatory – the perfect place for a morning cup of coffee. On the first floor, the vast sitting room stretches the width of the house, filled with comfy, cushion-topped sofas. Bedrooms, spread across all three floors, are a flexible mix of singles, doubles and triples; some have four-posters and high-spec en suites. The peaceful walled garden is a lovely place to relax with a good book; a couple of barbecues are on standby for sunny weather. Chatsworth House and wonderful walks are close.

A really lovely location for a family celebration. Very well furnished & fitted out for a large extended family. Decorated for Christmas it was really welcoming & homely. It more than met our expectations.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Mandy Heathcote

  • Nestling in the south-eastern corner of the Peak District National Park, Winster is a picturesque village with many historic stone built houses and the remarkable 16th Century Market House at it's heart.
  • The community shop & post office is well stocked and just 2 doors away. The village also boasts two pubs serving home cooked food and cask ales. Birchover, the next village also has two excellent pubs that serve beautiful food and ales.
  • Chatsworth House and gardens, Haddon Hall, Matlock, Ashbourne, Dovedale and Bakewell are an easy drive away and attractions such as the Crich Tramway Museum, Blue John Caverns and the Heights of Abraham are all within easy reach.
  • If walking or cycling are your thing, you couldn't be better placed to experience some of the most beautiful landscapes on the doorstep, the High Peak and Tissington Trails and the Limestone Way are nearby. Bikes can be locked in the stone outbuilding.
  • We also have a UNESCO World Heritage Site virtually on the doorstep in the Derwent Valley Mills. It was here that textile production was revolutionised when water power was first successfully harnessed, this was a milestone in the Industrial Revolution.
  • Winster is a beautiful village, it's well worth spending an afternoon exploring the ginnels or small alleyways that wind around, leading to some exceptional views and insights into the lead mining history of the area.
