A wonderful old Hall in Winster, sleeping up to sixteen in seven bedrooms.

Winster Hall is a wonderful old Hall set over three floors. With seven bedrooms, including two with four poster beds, it sleeps sixteen people comfortably. There is also a second floor shower room, a ground floor shower room and cloakroom, a kitchen with adjoining conservatory, dining room with sitting area with open fire, library and a first floor sitting room. Outside, there is a courtyard garden and lawned garden, as well as a summerhouse, and off road parking for seven cars. Winster Hall is a wonderful home and a great base for touring the area.


Perfect venue for a family gathering
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.

Perfect rental for a family occasion
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.

Mr & Mrs
After being greeted with a freshly baked lemon drizzle cake which was delicious and a bottle of prosecco on the dinning table - We Spent a lovely long weekend (Fri 23/02 to Mon 26/02) here with my brothers, sisters and in-laws, a total of 12 adults. This was For a family reunion without our grown up children. My sister in-law Clare discovered the property on line and made all of the booking. The criteria in her choice was the ability of Winster Hall to accommodate all the couples with comfort and convenience for the differing needs including playing music in one room, watching TV in another. We spent every meal time together which was a cooked breakfast every morning and great Dinner parties in the evening?s. All the couples were in charge of various meal times. Mine was to cook a large Turkey roast dinner and I can honestly say the kitchen was well equipped from the prep stage to placing the food into the beautiful serving dishes on to the grand dinning table. We visited the local areas, Matlock, Matlock Bath and Bakewell which was beautiful. I would definitely return to Winster Hall with family again or friends. Thank you. X

Excellent venue & location for family gathering, (and the two dogs).
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!

Impressive traditional style
Overall, this traditional, stylish, mini-mansion worked very well indeed. We were a party of 7 couples, staying 3 nights. The lounge, kitchen and dining room all allow for convivial gathering. There were a couple of slight downsides to the 2nd floor accommodation: the 'Jack & Jill' bathroom needs a soundproof door to the adjoining bedroom, and the stowaway bed in the small bedroom is only suitable for someone up to 5'6". In warm weather the garden and courtyard would be superb for a bbq/garden party. Winster is a lovely village with a good pub and shop very close by; the latter sold everything we needed except for replacement tea-lights for the dining table.
