“Amazing Views”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely cottage with amazing views. We had mixed weather but when permitted we spent as much time in the lovely garden as we could. The views from there were fantastic and so quiet. Sitting out listening to the birds, if you manage to be around on a Sunday afternoon you should get your very own Red Arrows display.
Plenty to do and see within the area, great for walking and both our dogs loved the cottage and the area. Inside stairs and outdoor back steps pretty steep so watch it if you're taking young kiddies, elderly or infirm.
Beds really comfy and big bedrooms, just a surprise no wardrobes in. Plenty of towels though.
Quite a few issues when we first arrived but quickly dealt with by the owners.
WiFi would be a boon, phone signals are poor and making a trip outside to make any contact was a bit of a nuisance but if you want peace and relaxation then ideal.

“Great location-stunning views”

person found this review helpful

Despite travelling with youngish children, we wanted a short break that would enable us to leave on a Thursday so our eldest-14-could go away with her friend and their family the next day. Having trawled through numerous options we hit upon The Croft at Winster which could accommodate all 5 of us. After an easy drive we arrived at our destination....if you're not used to narrow lanes and steep hills take it easy. The cottage comes with a caveat about parking but we were able to park almost outside without causing any disruption to the locals. Before we'd unpacked our first bag the old girl next door popped out for a chat, very friendly and very amusing. The cottage itself was perfect: we had a great room and the kids all slotted into theirs. One of the beds pulled out from under another and was perfect for our 6 year old....though ironically the eldest ended up sleeping on it with no problems. The bathroom is spacious as is the shower. Kitchen is perfectly equipped with a great range oven, dishwasher etc. Although the weather was a bit variable the views from the garden were fantastic. MrsT who enjoys a spot of yoga and loves hills and mountains said the place could be sold on the views alone. Of course I took the trusty steed and if you're a cyclist you can pick some very short routes with lots of very steep climbing. There was also a utility in which I could keep the bike. Winster offered easy access for us to Dovedale, the Tissington trail, Chatsworth and Hathersage as well as stop offs at Bakewell and Buxton. Depending on your view the upside or downside was no wifi access; for us it didn't matter and we're normally buried in e mails. Although we weren't there for a whole week it was a perfect start to the summer holidays.

“very comfortable cottage in a beautiful village”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This cottage has everything you are likely to need (with the exception of wardrobe hanging space - although there are plenty or chest of drawers): a well equipped kitchen (with Aga and dishwasher), washroom with dryer and washing machine, bathroom with large bath and rain water shower etc. There is no internet but there is a weak phone signal (O2) so 3g was available. However there are plenty of DVDs and games.
The crowning glory is the small but beautiful split level terrace and garden with wonderful
views over the countryside.
There are two pubs in the village each five minutes walk from the cottage. One does food Thursday to Saturday, the other food all week.

“Idyllic get away”
Reviewed 25 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed here for a long weekend and had a fantastic time. This cottage is the perfect place to just get away from it all, relax, unwind and is in a perfect location. It had everything we needed with home comforts and the views from the garden are superb. My 2 favourite things; the bath and the log burner

The dogs loved it too, close to lots of long walks that they thoroughly enjoyed!

Will def be back. Thanks for having us!
