“Idyllic Cottage! Idyllic Location! Idyllic Weekend”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We spent a wonderful weekend at Briar Cottage. Winster is a beautiful village and Briar Cottage is just perfect – beautifully appointed and it was so lovely to enter the lounge and have the fire already burning away – thanks Anne. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need. The bedroom is gorgeous, very romantic with the four poster bed and very comfortable too! The shower room is fantastic – it was like being in a Boutique Hotel and obviously a lot of thought has gone into the design of this room. We opted to go to the Red Lion at Hognaston on Saturday night and can highly recommend this pub. The food was great and it has a wonderful ambience. On the Sunday we had lunch at the Peacock at Rowsley. The food and service was excellent. The building itself is fabulous and the interior is just beautiful. All in all our weekend at Briar Cottage was delightful and we look forward to visiting again. Fiona Stewart

“Beautiful, cosy cottage in peaceful location”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a fantastic weekend at Briar Cottage. The owners left the fire on for us so it was lovely and warm when we arrived. The whole place was immaculately clean and kept it's charm. The luxurious bathroom and four poster bed were highlights. Perfect for a romantic get away. Although it was very cold we had a fab days road cycling in the picturesque countryside on quiet roads. Would definitely consider a return visit once it warms up. Thanks Anne!

“Very Cosy Cottage”

Arrived at Briar cottage last weekend 17th October late on the Friday evening,I had been ill all week and was unsure whether we would be able to make it.So glad we were able to. Anne had put the lights on for us and the gas coal fire was on making the cottage lovely warm and cosy for our arrival. The cottage is spotlessly clean and in a very quiet courtyard in the lovely village of Winster. The Bedroom is lovely and very spacious and the bathroom is beautiful and has the the most amazing shower. would highly recommend for a lovely quiet get away and cant wait to come back. Thank you

“Amazing cottage in a lovely village”
Reviewed September 24, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

This is an older review due to my own tardiness but my boyfriend and I stayed at Briar Cottage for his birthday weekend back in March. The cottage itself is actually far prettier than even in the pictures, perfect for a cosy weekend (or longer if we could book the time). The little kitchen is compact but we managed (ahem, I managed) to cook breakfast every day and an evening meal one night we stayed. The bathroom is AMAZING - as you would find in a really good boutique hotel which is a problem for my other half who has trouble getting me to hurry up in there at the best of times.

The owners Anne and Emlyn were both lovely and extremely helpful.

Winster is a beautiful village, very picturesque and near to Matlock and Bakewell and loads of good walks nearby. In Winster itself there are two pubs and we visited both (rude not to). They both do food and although we only ate at one (the one which wasn't up a really steep hill - can't remember the name) it was good pub food.

I have recommended Briar Cottage to several friends and we have already booked to stay again at the end of November.
