Ideal location for visiting the south Peak District. Very spacious with comfortable bedrooms and a nice kitchen ( though it would be better to ditch the AGA for a decent oven). A couple of downsides are the parking and the front/dining room.

The parking outside the front means negotiating a very narrow gate followed by a sharp turn. Only suitable for small/medium cars. We also found during our stay that we were blocked in twice by cars parking in front of the gates, we started to park one of the cars here to avoid this.

The front room is very dark, next to no natural light and poor artificial lighting. We ate in the conservatory room as the dining room was too dark.

It was a pleasant stay with nice outside space and the local shop is great, but I wouldn't stay here again.

This is a really impressive place. Situated in the centre of Winster Village it is perfectly placed for all the attractions in the South end of the Peak District. A village shop almost next door a very friendly pub across the road the village is well served. The accommodation inside the hall is spacious and very well maintained. Outside space is also good and our 11 year old grandson loved playing football in the walled garden. Three generations made up our party of 12 plus our small dog and all agreed this was a very special place for a family get together. Marvelous.

Booked this house as it was equidistant for all the family. With plenty of bedrooms plus multiple bed configurations, this house easily accommodated our group of 14 plus dog. We spent most of our time either in the dining room, the stove providing a cosy atmosphere, or the comfortable lounge on the first floor. The kitchen was well equipped with good quality crockery and glassware and the combination of the aga plus two electric ovens made cooking the three course dinner on the Saturday night a doddle. Beware though if you are not familiar with cooking on an aga. The oven gloves provided are adequate for using the electric ovens but too flimsy and thin to protect against the high temperatures of the aga. We used the felt gloves from the stove to avoid any nasty burns!

The house was immaculately clean with a small range of toiletries in the bathrooms and plenty of towels. The fixtures and fittings are of a high standard and all the bedrooms are individually decorated and finished with complimentary cushions and throws. It wasn?t initially obvious from looking at the layout plans but the ground floor bedroom is accessed from the dining room and the bathroom that services this room is located adjacent to the bedroom but accessed from an inner hall off the dining room. This meant the occupants had to pass through the dnining room to reach their bathroom in the mornings. We were all family so it was amusing to see Grandad passing through in his pyjamas, but this may not be quite so funny if you were not related. It?s a shame because this is one of the nicest rooms with a sitting area and fireplace.

Lastly, the drive immediately in front of the hall is the off road parking area for 5 cars. Our party consisted of two 4x4s plus a saloon car and, as there were cars parked on the road and the gates are very narrow, we only managed to get the saloon onto the drive, the angles being too tight. It wasn?t too much of a problem as there were spaces on the road all weekend although it was a bit of a palaver upon arrival, ferrying all our stuff across the road.

On the whole we had a great weekend. Thank you to the housekeeper for our welcome gifts. A silver tray was on the dining room table with a bottle of fizz, a balloon and a delicious carrot cake; a nice touch as it was a birthday celebration.

Booked this amazing house for a Golden Wedding celebration and was not disappointed. It is beautifully appointed with plenty of space for all generations and if you are lucky enough to visit in the summer, then the garden and outside space is an added bonus. Well worth the money.

Ample accommodation and bathrooms for the 12 of us (7 adults, 5 children), large kitchen, huge dining room and a sitting room where we could all spread out and do our own thing. Conservatory was good for the dogs as was the enclosed garden. Near to lots of good attractions - Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Matlock Bath etc. Good local walks and pubs. Nearby pub found room for all of us at short notice for Sunday lunch, but it does have quirky opening hours!

Spent a long weekend (Fri-Mon) here with my extended family, a total of 17 people with ages ranging from 82 years to 14 months, to celebrate my birthday. My wife discovered the property on line and made all of the booking arrangements which, according to her, was a very smooth process with good communications from the owners. Her choice was made on the basis of Winster's relatively central location for the guests who were travelling from NW and NE England, and from the East Mids.

The other main criteria in her choice was the ability of Winster Hall to accom
