Great location, a short walk up from the lovely village of Winster with cosy pubs nearby serving good ale and food. Great base for exploring other areas of the peak district like Bakewell and Buxton. Good variety of scenic walks nearby .

The accommodation was very cosy , good sized kitchen (all kitchen implements were included), lovely conservatory to relax in and two good sized double rooms upstairs. Everything was very clean and tidy when we arrived . We were a group of 5, so 3 went in one room and two in the other, however there was potential for more to sleep in the lounge downstairs which could turn into a sofa bed.
Cannot honestly fault anything with our stay here ! Thank you !

I stayed there twice before and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. It was in spotless condition when we arrived, the place was wet roomy and had fantastic scenery from the back garden. Fantastic bathroom and bedroom layout. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I spend four days here, it is a really really lovely house, home-like place, clean, comfortable, far more better than 5-star hotel~!! Winster is a wonderland with colourful stylish doors and beautiful stone houses. Day trip to chatworth house is an unforgettable experience~Walking around made me so happy and excited~I like the swinging chair and the fireplace~!
Family owners are very nice and friendly~love u all~! Bakewell is a lovely small town nearby with a lot of shops selling small things. Pubs serves delicious UK food and cheese and milk here are of very high quality~
Additionally, video games, books and DVDs in the house are a good relax, especially in raining days~
I hope I could stay here for longer time and come back again if possible. XXXX

The Croft is situated in a beautiful area, a five minute walk from two pubs and much less to many alternative walks with the cows and sheep! Shame there was a mix-up over how to get into the property, resulting in my family waiting for an hour before managing to get inside. Having said that, I would definitely recommend this cottage to others - the cute garden, cosy living room and excellent bathroom made it such exciting accommodation!

“Wonderful holiday cottage in Winster, a charming scenic village.”

This was the third time we have stayed at the Croft, a wonderful cottage set high up in Winster with fantastic views from the garden. The property is maintained to a very high standard throughout. A lovely sun room at the back with steps leading up to an enclosed garden on two levels, perfect for anyone with with a pet. The view is absolutely amazing, looking down onto the village and out across the fields.
The cottage itself has everything you need for a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Well equipped kitchen, with a separate utility room with washer and dryer. The lounge has a large flat screen TV and games galore with books to read in case you want to just chill indoors. Two upstairs bedrooms with large flat screen TVs in both and a very impressive bathroom. The owners are friendly and helpful, all instructions and information about Winster are sent to you before your holiday,
The village is very quiet and peaceful with some of the most beautiful gardens around. There is a village shop which stocks all essentials for your stay. Plenty of walks and places to see.
It is one of the most relaxing holidays I can recommend and we will hopefully return next year. Love it!

“charming and homely cottage that gives you a big hug as you walk in”

i have stayed at the croft a couple of times with friends in the winter months and with my 16 year old daughter last summer. in the winter it is the perfect place for some R & R. light the wood burner and the candles, settle down with a nice glass of something and select from one of the many DVD's provided or settle down with a good book. the kitchen is very well stocked and the whole cottage is cosy and comfortable. my favourite bit would be the extra deep free standing bath.
in the summer my daughter and i were very lucky to have gorgeous sunny weather. we barely left the garden. it is small but perfectly formed and the views are stunning.
there are lots of places nearby to visit - my favourite is Bakewell. Chatsworth is close and not to be missed and there are amazing country walks for year round enjoyment.
you can probably gather i love this place and can't rate it highly enough
