We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this fantastic B&B. Julie and Steve were very welcoming and helpful with great ideas for activities and days out in the area. The breakfast was as good as any restaurant I've been to, and I recommend the eggs benedict with smoked salmon (other options available too). The building has been renovated to a high standard and styled beautifully, with a lovely ensuite to our super king-size room (with both bath & shower), as well as a lounge to hang out in. We were greeted with tea and cake which was a really nice surprise after a long drive. Although the village of Winster is small, the B&B is well situated for walkers - many starting from the village - and an easy drive to bigger peak district towns like Bakewell. There is a great pub a few minutes walk away (The Old Bowling Green) which I recommend for dinner. We hired some bikes and did the 10 mile ride from Bakewell along the Monsal Trail which was an easy ride and very scenic. Would have loved to stay longer!!
