Guest Feedback and Testimonials

Feedback is of utmost importance to us here at Unique Home Stays, and we love to hear back from our guests to ensure that we have not only fulfilled, but exceeded their expectations every step of the way. But don't just take our word for it, read what previous clients have said about Winsmore Cottage below:

Our stay at Winsmore Cottage was delightful, the owner had thought of everything to make our stay so comfortable, apart from the house being amazing, beautiful decor and very homely, everything was clean and up-to-date with modern equipment. The little touches a gift of food in a hamper, welcomed milk to make a cup of tea when we arrived, oh and course there was tea and coffee if we needed it, delights in the fridge too, a small glass of malt/brandy after a long day out was another nice touch. We both (and Amber the dog) could not have wished for more. It was nice to have a room where we could store our boots and jackets. To us this cottage deserves a five star and would hope to visit Winsmore Cottage again.

Winsmore Cottage is a lovely and cosy base to explore from. We could not have faulted the property.

It was wonderful to find such a high standard of property which allowed us to bring our four legged friend. It was just lovely and very well equipped both for us and the dog :-)

Perfect setting with gorgeous views, and the distance to local shops and pubs was excellent. Unique Home Stays is a very professional company which we will use again. Winsmore Cottage was an idyllic luxury home from home property. Denise the lovely housekeeper met us and settled us in nicely. The welcome pack was amazing, lots of extras added to make our stay more enjoyable and unforgettable. Thank you!

What a lovely cottage and so clean, and thank you for the hamper. Its a lovely cottage, well layed out with some special extras. We had a fabulous time here. Market day on a Monday is a must. If you are going to visit Chatsworth, we highly recommend The Devonshire Arms. Many thanks.

What a beautiful cottage to relax and get away from it all, the weather has not been kind, but still managed to get out and about. Lovely walks and stunning countryside wherever you go. We enjoyed coming back in the evenings and lighting the fire - very cosy. The hampers were a lovely touch. Thanks for a great time.

We spent a wonderful few days at Winsmore Cottage. Such a beautiful location but always felt like such a treat to come back to this cosy little cottage. Two walks worth doing are Lathkill Dale and Monsal Dale. Thank you so much for once again exceeding expectations Unique Home Stays!

This was our first visit to Derbyshire and was absolutely wonderful. The cottage is not only a beautiful relaxing place to stay, you feel at home instantly. Its also in a great place for some scenic walks to work up a healthy appetite for some of the gorgeous home cooking of the surrounding pubs. We would highly recommend The Bulls Head in Ashford on the water, The Royal Oak pub and The Devonshire Arms at Chatsworth House. We will definitely be back and recommending it highly to our friends. Thanks so much for a memorable week of fun.

We had a really lovely stay, the cottage is so cosy and homely we enjoyed making it our own for the week. We saw all kinds of weather but enjoyed every day. The surrounding walks are really pleasant, and a great thing to do before dinner is walk along the Lathkill Dale whether you go right or left, you cant go wrong. Thanks for a fantastic break.

A stunning break from busy London town! A treat for both of our birthdays. Loved the fire, and the kitchen facilities were great. Chatsworth Farm Shop is a superb stop off, if only to meet lovely friendly people! Thank you for a wonderful two days.

Super cottage, very comfortable and everything you could wish for. It was our first visit to the Peak District, so much to see, hoping to return soon!

The cottage exceeded expectations. We wouldn´t change a thing about it and we will definitely come back. The Devonshire Arms at Baslow is recommended and the walk along the river towards Youlgreave is fantastic. We´ll be back next year.

What a beautiful cottage you have! We felt very much at home here. The cottage is immaculate, your housekeepers do a very good job! The Lathkil Hotel - 5 minutes walk away, is very friendly and do superb food. Visits to Chatsworth House, Haddon Hill and Hardwick Hall are all a must to visit. The hamper was a nice touch, thanks for a lovely stay.

Such a beautiful cottage, everything here we could wish for. We spent lots of time in the lovely conservatory. We came here to unwind and were certainly able to do that. After speaking to our son, he phoned us yesterday to say that they also now booked the cottage for a week in August. Also, thanks for the great hamper!

Beautiful cottage, fantastic week and wonderful memories. The cottage was so clean and had everything we wanted. We´d love to come back!

The cottage has a lovely chilled energy, we could stay here forever. Great coffee and a great shower make a fabulous weekend! Loved the local walks too. Thanks for making the bedroom feather free for me, much appreciated!

What a way to spend our 1st wedding anniversary! Lovely little cottage, fully equipped with everything you should need. We would love to come back when it´s winter!

From the minute we arrived, to be met and welcomed by Denise we know we had found the perfect retreat. We came for a few days of peace and quiet and Winsmore Cottage gave us all we had hoped for and much more. Thank you.

Our first time in the Peak District. Winsmore Cottage was exactly as we thought it would be. Very nice and all the comfort we wanted! Denise told us everything we needed to know, thanks! The weather was perfect every day. We saw a lot of the environment and local area and enjoyed every minute of it. We took a walk below the river and had tea on our way down. Thank you also for the hamper!

The cottage was very clean and extremely well equipped. The super king-size bed was so comfortable and it was lovely to have luxury cotton bedding. It is in an area we love to walk in and has a super pub within walking distance. We had seen the cottage, from the outside, prior to booking and liked the look of it and its location. We also wanted a cottage with a log fire for the time of year.

The property was excellent, well laid out and had everything you could think of to enjoy your holiday. Even if the weather wasn´t brilliant, time spent at the cottage was perfect. We were so pleasantly surprised to find everything we needed to light the log burner, use the electrical appliances etc. Even down to touches such as the hamper, bread, butter, eggs, coffee, tea, sugar being there so that we could use. Having the use of a separate utility room/cloakroom was a bonus.

A most pleasurable experience

It was a very relaxing experience thoroughly enjoyed.

The property was delightful, cleaned and finished to excellent standards

House was very well stocked, with everything you would require for a short stay.

We just wanted to say what a wonderful stay we had & that the cottage was absolutely perfect – a lot of thought had clearly gone into the property, fittings & equipment. We really couldn’t fault it.

The cottage was perfect for us. We brought our dog along & even she had been catered for in terms of bowls & bed.

I have stayed in several of your properties and I am always happy. I felt that Winsmore Cottage really did provide all the extras that I would expect. Wonderfully warm ( very cold spell). Kindling and logs provided + all essentials for running a home eg kitchen towel, loads of loo paper, extra towels, toweling robes, washing powder etc. As well as a Unique Home Stays hamper, we had an additional hamper from the owner and felt very pampered! There were fresh flowers in two rooms and current magazines. Lots of books, games, walk guides, DVDs, CDs etc etc. We were very impressed. I would just like the owner to know it was all much appreciated and made our stay special.

A wonderful property, a stress free check in on arrival and we were made to feel extremely welcome

Once again, Unique Home Stays exceeded our expectations on all fronts. We loved the cottage and the location. It is a luxury to have complete certainty about the quality of the property before you even begin your holiday. We´ll be sure to book again soon.

Great property and area. Loved it! It was just what we wanted to get out of a short break. Unique Home Stays is the best website i´ve found in a long time for holidays, will definitely be booking with you again in the future.Our expectations were certainly met, and they were high anyway because the quality of the website and the pictures on the web are so good.

Fantastic cottage in lovely location. We’ve had a very relaxing week. 

Beautifully renovated-attention to detail.  Excellent standards.  Restful break in lovely surroundings.  Local produce-excellent

Beautiful little cottage which has been raised above the normal standard with the inclusion of high quality extras such as the Nespresso coffee machine, AV equipment and stocked log fire. Thank you.

Beautiful cottage and countryside have made for a wonderful relaxing week.  Many thanks for your warm welcome, we’ve had a fantastic time

Amazing cottage with lovely little touches – creates the perfect relaxing getaway.

A perfect retreat from the daily city grind in a perfect ‘boutique’ cottage. Heaven!

For a two person cottage, there was plenty of room. Very clean and comfortable, with modern decor. Hope to return sometime.
