“Superb Cottage”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed at this cottage last week for 3 nights, its a superb very well equipped, like home from home, very clean and a perfect base for touring, Both pubs in the village also allow dogs which was a PLUS... food in both the Bowling Green Inn and the Miners Standard was Excellent and all home cooked..

There is a local store in the village.

Steep hill up to the cottage, which may be problematic for the less abled walkers. car parking is ok for a smaller car, however there was parking 50yds approx. which was not a problem for us.

Overall I would certainly stay there again, and recommend to my friends also.

its a little hidden gem

“Lovely cottage in idyllic setting”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We (husband dog and I) have just returned from a relaxing three night break at The Croft. The cottage was spacious, homely and clean - it was very well equipped; surprisingly so, even having a play station (great for kids), board games, i pod stations and lots of tvs! The kitchen was stocked with plenty of plates/cutlery so it was possible for just the two of us to eat and use the dishwasher just once. The garden was amazing - tidy, with wonderful views and apart from a table and chairs there was a lovely swing seat - we even had our own private "Red Arrows" display whilst they were performing at the Chatsworth country fair. Internet reception was not great, but not a problem when you are on holiday and yes the roads are very narrow and parking at the top of the hill may be problematic for those who are less mobile. Just added to the charm of the place - would recommend to any one who wants a peaceful break, Two pubs in village but beware do not always serve food early in the week but plenty of walks and other hostelries to drive to.

“A great house for families”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed several nights at The Croft with three small children. The house is very comfortable and authentic, with a nice garden and stunning views. There are plenty of games and DVDs for the whole family. Winster is a quiet little town, not far from many attractions of the Peak. The main drawback is that there's no WiFi in the house, and an unstable cellular network. We enjoyed our stay very much, and we definitely recommend The Croft!

“Lovely cottage but a couple of things needed attention”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in The Croft for a short break with my parents, brother, and our dog. The cottage is absolutely lovely and the village location and views are stunning. The cottage is beautiful and generally very well kitted out (we enjoyed the games consoles)! There were just a couple of small things that we felt let it down a bit. We needed to make up an extra bed when we arrived (which we didn't mind) and some of the linen in the bedroom hamper was a bit musty and tatty - the duvet was starting to tear a little. The duvet on the main double bed also hadn't been ironed, and just looked very tired. The kitchen counters were also extremely sticky - due we think to the product used to clean them. This did put us off wanting to use them too much though. However, we were very happy with the owners who were friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to assist us, and none of this detracted from our enjoyment of our stay in The Croft. Overall, we would recommend this cottage - good for those with pets who enjoy country walks.

“LOVELY”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I and an old school friend and of course the Yorkshire Terrier had a fab week at Winster. We enjoyed everything about the cottage and the setting. We ate at the Miners Standard at the top of the village and went out sight seeing and antique shop searching every day. There were lovely walks with the dog in the evening and the cottage had everything that you could possibly want to make your stay comfortable. We love the garden on two levels with the wonderful views. The road to the cottage is very narrow and parking challenging but you can park at the top of the village and walk down if need be. We loved our stay and the cottage and thank you.
