Red Lion at Birchover is an excellent local brewpub, community shop in Winster for necessities. Maya the Collie loved walking Lathkill Dale, Chee Dale, Stanton Moor, Longstone Edge etc
Lovely, cosy, country cottage with great views and countryside.
Nice cottage with great walks and things to do nearby. The lovely owner made things extra special leaving eggs, bread, butter, wine and homemade scones. The snow falling on the Derbyshire Dales made it even more lovely. Our dog loved it and had great walks along the Cromford Canal and TIssington trail. A nice pub within walking distance was a blast from the past, like stepping into the 1940's! But a great pub about a mile away serving homemade food called the "Miners Standard" Will be booking again!

Very helpful and friendly owners. The wine and homemade scones and jam which awaited my arrival were much appreciated and enjoyed. The cottage was very comfortable and located in a very peaceful area with splendid views. I could not find any fault with this cottage, the owners or the area it was located in.
Weve given Barn Croft the full five stars because on the whole it deserves it. Carolyn the owner was so very thoughtful with a lovely starter pack inc wine aned then in the middle of the week scones and a lemon cake! what kindness. The cottage was just about the right size for the two of us with a great garden to sit in. Location was very central, 15mins to Matlock and 5 to the miners pub. If I was being very picky, we are used to a 42inch plasma so we found the TV hard to see, if that was put right then you would have the perfect cottage for a stay!!!
What a lovely welcome!
From the moment we were met by our hosts we were made to feel at home. They had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. The cottage was clean and well maintained and within easy reach of local attractions and set in a lovely village surrounded by beautiful scenery.

A wonderful base to explore the countryside and lovely to relax in after a long day walking.

We received a friendly greeting from the owners, which made us feel at home immediately and a further welcome awaited us indoors in the form of milk, bread and butter, tea, coffee, home-made cake and even a bottle of wine!
The property was clean; the bed firm and comfortable; plenty of storage space; and the kitchen equipped with all the bits and pieces one could wish.
Although the secluded garden at the rear was surrounded by hedging, obscuring the view, the owners were very pleased to allow visitors to enter their own garden via a gate and enjoy the view from there. For those wishing to leave the car behind, it was only a short walk to the main village street which was well served by the local bus, giving access to Bakewell and Matlock.
We liked everything about the cottage except the sticking stable door to the garden, but this wouldn't stop us coming back to enjoy anothe holiday in this lovely place.
This little place is a positive haven. Everything & more than what we wished for. Dog friendly too with lots of walks on the doorstep. With home baking by the lovely owner and extra goodies left for us we felt so spoilt. We are hoping to return as soon as we can find time.
