A spacious 17th Century coaching inn with plenty of character. Great for special occassions with private use of leisure facilities nearby.

The Old Angel sleeps 12 adults and 2 children under the age of 8. Situated in the pretty conservation village of Winster, The Old Angel is a former 17th-century coaching inn. Adjoining another cottage, it offers a wealth of exposed oak beams, floorboards and flagstone floors. It also enjoys access to the facilities at Harthill Hall, just 3 miles (5 minutes) away with private use (12.30pm – 2.00pm each day) of the indoor heated swimming pool and sauna.
Opposite is the famous Market Hall (NT) with the village shop almost next door, and local inn just up the road. It makes an ideal holiday base, and is conveniently placed to visit the spa town of Buxton with its opera house. The bustling market town of Bakewell, situated on the River Wye, and crossed by a 13th century five-arched bridge is a good place to visit - buildings of note there include the 13th and 14th-century All Saints Church, with Saxon and Norman stonework. Within easy reach are Matlock and Matlock Bath (complete with Heights of Abraham cable cars), the popular market town of Ashbourne, the plague village of Eyam, Carsington Water with waterspouts, cycling and bird-watching. NT and period properties abound, including Kedleston Hall, Chatsworth House, Hardwick Hall and Haddon Hall. Excellent walking in the Peak District and marked cycle trails. Shops 10 yards.

    Lovely property full of character, we loved the open fire. Plenty of room for everyone and good kitchen and bathroom facilities. Some of the furnishings were a little bit tired and there was limited parking but that is to be expected in a small village. Well placed near the Bowling Green pub which served lovely food and the shop next door was very handy! Overall a great place for a family get together.

    The property was very shabby, not very clean and had plumbing problems. The dinning area of the kitchen and table/chairs etc were not sufficient for 12 people. Car parking is a nuisance but can be overcome. We bought bulbs for the kitchen because some were spent and not replaced! It is a lovely but very neglected house that could be very good with the right care.

    We have booked cottages for Christmas break for 10 years so know what we like this cottage had all the amenities but at a very basic level, one of the group had a disability so the lack of a downstairs toilet was an issue.
