“Beautiful, comfortable cottage with walks on doorstep”
Reviewed March 4, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

This was our second trip to Winster and the second cottage we have stayed in there. The Old Barn gets our vote for future trips- it offers extremely comfortable, spacious accommodation with homely touches (which for us include free broadband and Sky TV- would also mean that we would happily return with our teenagers, although this was an adults only break).
The extra touches on arrival were unexpected and hugely appreciated - home made cake hits the spot after a long journey as does a bottle of Pinot Grigio and kettle chips for the evening.
We do like to cook and the kitchen is as well equipped as our own! The jacuzzi bath is to die for, pure luxury and there are also 2 showers, meaning there are no disputes over whose turn it is to go first after a long walk!
This is probably not the cottage of choice for those with very young children as access to the courtyard garden is shared with the owners- who use a different entrance but ball games or raucous running around would be inconsiderate and inappropriate. If that's not an issue for you, there's plenty of open space nearby for kids to let off steam.
We love Winster because it is a proper village with real people and a real community (recommend a visit in early December when the Christmas tree is being lit and the villagers sing carols and drink mulled wine, very lovely). It has some great walks on the doorstep- we did a 14 mile one one day, but also limited ourselves to the walk to nearby Birchover on others. We also like the village shop which is well-equipped with all you could want - fresh veg, fresh bakery bread, cakes etc. There are 2 pubs with good menus in the village itself, and the one in Birchover looks really good too - proof of that in the coach party that arrived to eat there as we walked past once. We had a nice simple meal on a walk to the one at Youlgleave - soup, sandwiches and chips but all tasty and reasonably priced.
