About Winhill Cottage

Winhill Cottage is the result of a family's love of the beautiful Peak District and a passion for preserving the past in a way that makes sense for the future. The former farm building is now a charming stone cottage with space for up to four people to sleep in two bedrooms. It sits on Oaker Farm in the stunning Hope Valley in the heart of the national park, a mile from the pretty village of Hope and a relaxed 20-minute walk from the quirkily-named Cheshire Cheese Inn, where thirsty travellers have found beer and a warm welcome since the 1500s. As one of a collection of four lovely self-catering properties on the family-run farm, Winhill Cottage can be booked on its own or together with one of the other places for extended families or friends on holiday together.

Regardless of the season, there is never a better time to visit the Peak District. It's utterly gorgeous all year round, with miles of footpaths, cycling routes and bridleways to help you explore. The long-distance Pennine Way starts in nearby Edale, or why not take time to explore the neighbouring town of Castleton where you'll find Peveril Castle and the amazing underground beauty of Blue John Cavern - a fantastic all-weather attraction that proves the appeal of the Peak District is more than skin deep.

Chatsworth House is a must-see. The house, gardens, shops and farmyard will fill a day or two, especially if you are there for a particular exhibition or keen to examine the world-class collections in detail. Buxton's Georgian glory days are evident in its architecture; while Bakewell's buildings are more rustic but no less appealing.

Winhill Cottage is on the outskirts of Hope village where there is a convenience store, farm shop and deli, butcher, and several takeaway restaurants. It has everything you need, with more shops in nearby Castleton. Hope's railway station is on the Sheffield and Manchester lines, making it possible to combine city delights and countryside pursuits.

You can find out more about Oaker Farm holiday cottages, including availability, on the owner's website.

Accommodation Comprises:

Though the exterior of Winhill Cottage is rustic stone, the interior is light and modern, with a high standard of finish and furnishing throughout. Accommodation is all on one level making it a good choice for those who prefer to not climb stairs.

  • The sitting room is a lovely place to relax in front of the TV. Light the log burner in winter and settle back with your favourite tipple and a good book, or just enjoy the beautiful view of the Hope Valley.
  • A fitted kitchen has everything you will need whether your definition of "self-catering" is a round of toast or a three-course celebratory meal. The dining table seats four people and a highchair is available on request.
  • Master bedroom with an antique-style double bed, chest of drawers, period wardrobe, and a bedside table.
  • Second bedroom with two full-sized single beds separated by a chest of drawers that doubles as a nightstand.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.
