Nestled in pretty picture-postcard Winster, in the heart of the Peak District National Park, 300 year old Lancaster Cottage is the perfect luxury bolt-hole for those who want to get away from it all. In a peaceful, tranquil position with original features including cosy fireplace, huge settee & a dreamy, romantic bedroom with king-sized comfy bed with lovely views over the hills & private cottage garden. Ideally situated, only minutes on foot from 2 cosy real-ale pubs & lots of great walking.

MY COVID-19 CANCELLATION POLICY: I have a mutual Covid-19 cancellation policy. This means that if you (the guest) or myself (the host) have to self-isolate due to Covid-19 at the time of your stay, I will provide a full refund for cancellations up to 12 hours prior to check-in. I hope this makes you feel more comfortable about making a booking during these uncertain times. Contact me for more details.

Built in 1701 out of local limestone and Grade II Listed, Lancaster Cottage oozes character and is the ideal retreat for a luxury romantic escape.

Recently renovated with cosy luxury in mind, it is packed with original features with beautiful wooden beams throughout, unique gritstone fireplace with cosy stove burner and thick exposed stone walls, it is a wonderful haven all year round.

Maybe you want to snuggle up on the gorgeous comfy settee by the fireside or listen to the birdsong in the beautiful cottage garden with a glass of wine – the weather will help you decide!

The position is perfect – situated in a little row of cottages with a car-free frontage with outdoor seating for enjoying that morning coffee. It is utterly peaceful except for the sound of bird song and the occasional church bells. Take the secret path from the front door and you’ll find our hidden garden, completely private and full of flowers, with seating and gorgeous views over open countryside. At night-time the light pollution is low so the skies are full of stars - and there is a firepit and blankets to keep you warm.

The cottage is dog-friendly - this is the perfect area to bring your dog on holiday! Two dogs are allowed (extra cleaning charges apply).

Located in the beautiful, quaint village of Winster with 2 great pubs a few minutes walk away, lively village shop and fantastic Peak District walks from the front door.

Location

Winster, England, United Kingdom

This is the perfect base for walking and exploring Derbyshire’s Peak District National Park. With numerous walking trails and public footpaths including the Limestone Way only minutes from the house, 2 great traditional pubs (one is 2 minutes walk, the other a 7 minute walk) and Winster’s famous village shop, everything you need is on the doorstep.

Once you are here, there is no need to get in the car again until you leave.

It is also perfectly situated for exploring more of the White and Dark Peak with some of the best walks and stately homes in the country only a short drive away. Bakewell is a lovely town to explore, with lots of interesting shops and cute cafes. There is enough here to keep you busy for years!

Winster is listed in the Doomsday Book and is now a Conservation Area, with most of its beautiful and unique 17th/18th century buildings being listed, built during Winster's leadmining heyday. However, despite the peaceful nature of the village, it is a real place with lots of character and friendly locals – great for a wander around the little narrow streets before you go to the pub!

I live in the Peak District in Derbyshire and have recently trained to be a gardener, after 12 years of living and working on a sailing boat. Lancaster Cottage is my home when I'm not renting to Airbnb guests and I absolutely love Winster. I've recently re-landscaped my garden - it is my pride and joy and I hope you enjoy it.
