A Grade II listed property that dates back over 300 years, Marmalade Cottage is nestled in the heart of the pretty Peak District Village of Winster, and contains original features throughout.
Enjoying a delightful village position, Marmalade Cottage has wonderful local amenities close by. After a day spent traversing the undulating hills and steep peaks of the surrounding landscape, guests can head to the local pub, The Bowling Green Inn for a spot of lunch and to rest those aching legs. The nearby town of Matlock offers even more, including a railway station which makes Marmalade Cottage easily accessible by both road and rail.
Guests enter the cottage into a good size reception dining area, stepping across the part stone flagged, part wooden floors it is immeditaley clear that this property is brimming with character. A door to the rear of the hallway leads through to the kitchen which is equipped with all the necessities. Another door off the hall takes guests through to the lounge which has exposed beams, stone fagged floors and a woodburner set into a gritstone fireplace, which gives the room a wonderful ambience. A utility-storage room is located just off the lounge and provides space for those muddy boots and wet coats. Arched leaded windows throughout the property are a nod to the history that is embedded within the stone walls.
The original staircase leads up to the first floor and the two bedrooms. The first bedroom contains two single beds and has an original stone fireplace which makes a central feature of the room. The second spacious bedroom has a king size bed and beautiful views towards the front of the property. There is a main bathroom with a bath, shower-over, toilet and hand basin.
