A lovely cottage in a beautiful area. The cottage was kept to a very high standard and had everything you could wish for. The owners were very helpful and gave us lots of information about the cottage and the surrounding area. I would definitely recommend.

We all had a great time at Pump Cottage in Winster. This was a terrific location to explore the Peak District, with a store and pub within short walking distance, right on a walking trail, and a very short driving distance to many key attractions. Would definitely stay here again.

Winster is a charming village and the area has alot to offer. We had a lovely holiday, the cottage was nice and warm, with plenty of hot water and in a great situation in the middle of the village. Had 2 good traditional pubs each serving tasty food.

We had a lovely stay here, with ourselves and two young children (toddler and baby) staying in the family room as part of a family holiday. The cottage is very cosy and full of character, in a great location for walking nearby or driving to a nearby village/town for a mooch. Very much recommended

A charming, well presented cottage in an attractive village. Close to lots of good places to visit or for walking.

Pump Cottage is very cosy and homely, with original character but with modern facilities. My family of 3 generations enjoyed our stay very much. Furniture layout in the lounge/diner was great as it was suitable for TV dinner or sitting round the dining table. We enjoyed the long evenings in the cosy room.

Very cosy and comfortable, especially with the log-burner going! The cottage has been cleverly modernised without losing its original character. The position of the cottage is very convenient - off the main road, with a very good local shop and post office at the top of the lane. The other end of the lane opens out to fields and there's a children's playground, a hit with the kids from 2 to 27! We all really enjoyed our stay and would thoroughly recommend Pump Cottage, Winster and Derbyshire.

Pump cottage is small but well laid-out, and suitable for a young family with three or four children. The attic has been converted into a bedroom for three kids, with one double-bed and one small single bed, (along with a few old DVD's and VHS copies of Friends), but the low ceiling up the stairs makes it difficult to reach if you're tall. The first floor has one small room with a single bed and one larger bedroom with a double-bed, and an average bathroom. Both double-beds have rather uncomfortable mattresses however. The cottage is reached by a narrow lane which only one car can fit down, but it does have a turning bay at the end, along with a kids playground and a path for walking the dog. There's no parking on this lane for the property; you need to leave your car on the village high-street. The village shop is right at the top of the lane, and sells firewood and kindle, but the pub is the only other place in the village to go. Pump cottage is a nice place to stay if you're looking for somewhere comfortable to go home too after a full day of activities in the area, and it was plenty of room for us as a couple, but I think a family would find it a bit small if they spent lots of time there. There is also little mobile reception in the house and village. Unfortunately our arrival was complicated by the owner traveling and leaving her main contact number out of service. We hadn't realised we were supposed to contact her two days in advance, and were unable to reach any one on the morning of departure. After several calls to the booking agency we were put through to her spouse, who forwarded us an email with key collection details, but this failed to arrive until the day after we'd arrived. We managed to get back in contact with the spouse to get the keys by finding one of the few spots in the village which has mobile phone reception.

We had a pleasant stay here for four nights. I was a bit worried about our young kids and the staircases but they loved crawling up and sliding down them. The cottage is definitely cosy, the living room is crowded but the family room in the attic gives a bit more play space . The village store is very convenient as is the little playground. The host was very helpful and responsive to things like the smoke alarm battery starting to go. Definitely not luxury but comfortable and plenty of books and DVDs.

Had a lovely visit with my four children lovely village close to Bakewell and Chatsworth. Weather was mixed so location lovely but weather not great for walking we probably spent quite a lot of time at in the cottage and cooked a lot so the kitchen is delightful but no dishwasher means lots of washing up!!!
