A cute and compact cottage suitable for small families
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.

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.
Mr Frosst

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 absolutely loved Pump Cottage and will no doubt be back many times over. A wonderful location and a wonderful set-up.
