Nuffies Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
This charming, semi-detached barn is situated on the owner's working beef and sheep farm, has panoramic views across the rolling countryside and is a mile and a half from Winster. It has been thoughtfully converted and manages to blend its traditional features with modern conveniences. The well-equipped and stylish kitchen is on open plan with the equally stylish and spacious dining and sitting areas, and there is a well-appointed bathroom and three large bedrooms to complete the accommodation. The family bedroom has its own en-suite shower room and one of the double rooms has lovely old cruck beams to add to the magical atmosphere of the room. This property is an ideal base for a family or group of friends to discover this fabulous region.

A conservation village, Winster is in the Peak District National Park and makes a charming base for a holiday. It has a 17th Century market house at its centre, and on the three main streets there are many three storey 18th Century houses. Winding through the village are little alleyways, known to the locals as ginnels, which are well worth exploring. Winster has many traditions, Morris Dancers, the Wakes festivities in June, and the annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race, making this sleepy little village far more vibrant and exciting than many similar sized locations. Walkers and cyclists are well placed for the Tissington Trail and The Limestone way and amenities in the village include a general store, post office and two pubs that serve local food and ales. More shops and facilities can be found in nearby Bakewell and Matlock.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Oil central heating. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, shared use of washing machine & tumble dryer in external utility room, dishwasher, TV, DVD, CD/radio, WiFi, small library of books/games.

Peaceful, delightful and well equipped cottage with marvellous views. The cottage was absolutely spotless too. It was ideal for our family of 6 plus a one year old. A perfect location to explore the Peak District. Friendly and welcoming owners, where nothing was too much trouble. We all had a wonderful time.

The owners were next door and easy to access, approachable and friendly for any questions or advice. We felt this was an excellent price charged for accommodation. The accommodation was well-equipped and we were given extra towels, toilet paper and soap so no need to shop for extra essential items. The property is in a great base location to explore Buxton/ Matlock area and was very peaceful and close to nature. This was a very different experience for the kids who thoroughly enjoyed seeing the farm animals.

Mrs Durrant
July 2008
The cottage was by far the best we have stayed in. Our daughter who is 3 particularly enjoyed visiting the cows and pigs. The cottage was so well equipped that we needed for nothing during our stay. We felt that this property should have been graded higher than it was. We would definitely return and have already recommended it to our friends and family. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Mrs Felton
April 2008
The cottage was beautifully furnished and on arrival the owner had left the necessary so that we could have a cuppa on arrival. I would thoroughly recommend staying at Nuffies Cottage - just remember to bring your wellies if you want to visit the sheep and cattle.
Jon W
August 2016
We stayed here with our 2 children (12 & 10) and my parents, and had a wonderful time. The cottage is very spacious and the kitchen well-equipped. Our girls loved the twin room with their own en-suite, and the 2 upstairs rooms were spacious and comfortable. The owners, Jill & Mick, were very friendly and made us most welcome. A great bonus is the communal washing machine and tumble dryer - there is something rather nice about coming home from holiday with all your clothes freshly washed and dried! The location (a tiny hamlet on a hill!) is perfect for exploring the Peak District. We especially recommend Dovedale, Carsington Water and the Heights of Abraham, which are all less than 30 mins away. We are already talking about returning next year!
Mr Mrs Banks
June 2008
This was a well equipped cottage, a great base to see such beautiful countryside.

December 2009
Im sure we have already submitted a review but again we found the property had everything we needed for an extended family stay.The standard of accomadation was first class and the owners couldnt have been more helpful.We have paid much more for properties that dont come anywhere near this standard and would certainly stay there again.
September 2014
This cottage had everything you could have wanted in a cottage, home from home. warm and cosy if cold and wet, beds were very comfortable, kitchen had all you needed in a kitchen, The owners were on hand if you needed anything and where to find it or to know anything about the area or where to visit. Wifi was an added bonus, so we could use a computer and also keep up with emails and anything else we needed to find out. Also very well maintained. It has an on suite bedroom downstairs for anyone unable to get upstairs, with 3 beds if needed. just one step to go up from parking area outside cottage if going to use the downstairs.. The cottage is a great base to stay, for many activities that in the area, whether it is cycling (cycle higher available near by), walking parts of the Peak district trail and well numbered walks., Go Ape. As well as caves, especially the Blue John caverns, National trust houses, Heights of Abraham, Alton Towers. Plenty to do for young children if it was needed because it was raining. Plenty of places to eat out in Matlock. Pennine way a little further north. lakes to walk round and visit especially lady Bower famous for the filming and practicing of the bouncing bomb. Plus many other things not even mentioned.
December 2009
Everything about this property was 5 star! Starting right from the directions from the owners! We received a warm welcome, and everything about the cottage was perfect! Very well equipped - even down to picnic equipment, everything you could possibly need. The owners delight in you seeing their farm and watching the milking etc, with the neighbouring farm selling free range eggs, which our children collected themselves! The views from the cottage are amazing and well within travelling distance to loads of the tourist attractions.
December 2009
we stayed here with our two chidlren and friends with their boy. The accomodation was very comfortable - well above the 5*s given - and the proprietors very friendly - involving the children in seeing the new lambs, calves and milking. we will definitely be back!!!
Satisfied family
December 2009
As many people this year we decided to "holiday at home" and looked for accommodation for the 6 of us, 2 adults and 4 children. Trying to satisfy all our needs is always a challenge but the Peak District could not have been better. The accommodation was excellent with three very good size double bedrooms 1 with en-suite facilities and the other two sharing a bathroom. Considering we were on a working farm we were not disturbed at all by any early morning milking sessions or general farm activities. In fact this added to the interest, the owners of the farm live in the cottage opposite and were very friendly and welcoming. Two adorable Labradors greeted us every time we ventured outside to head off to one or more of the many attractions the Peak District has to offer. All in all we were not sure what to expect but all of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nuffies Farm and are very likely to go back again.
