“Perfect Spot. I would buy if it was up for sale.”

I spent two nights of the full week in this wonderful little place. My partner spent seven nights there working hard to get a writing project completed. The place is absolutely ideal for this. The cottage is really quiet with views over the fields opposite and the sunset. There is even a large decked area for breakfasting outside in summer. It was really warm inside while both of us were there (the heating never entirely went off, but regulated itself automatically over the whole day!) There was everything we could have wished for in February, log fire, fully fitted kitchen so we didn't have to venture out into the worst winter in a long time, warm and comfortable beds and a nicely appointed bathroom. The furniture downstairs was not new but fitted the ambience of the cottage perfectly and was in good condition. The house is carpeted everywhere except the kitchen and this made for a comfortable, draught-free stay. While there I met the owner of the cottage twice, and Ken seemed to be a very practical and affable person with a full working knowledge of the property. During our stay everything supplied worked perfectly, even the radio piped into the bathroom!

“Lovely cosy cottage with open fire and home from home touches.”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I stayed in Ivy Cottage over Christmas and couldn't have asked for a nicer place to have a rest from work and relax. It's ideally situated for lovely walks in the Peak District and the village shops kept me well stocked with fresh local produce. The cottage is well proportioned and has the added bonus of an open fire in the sitting room, although I never used it because I was very cosy with the central heating which was easy to adjust as necessary. I chose to use the smaller bedroom which had a very comfy bed that meant I had my best nights of sleep in ages. Ken, the owner, was very nice and couldn't have been more helpful. Thanks x

“Comfortable, Quirky, not warm enough in October”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

The first impression was of a cosy, well-equipped cottage with some quirky decorative features particularly the plants in the bathroom. An interesting selection of books and CD's were provided. The drawback was the lack of adequate heating and bedding for October.
The fire-grate was full of ash and a large log which the previous occupants failed to ignite due to lack of kindling. I also failed to ignite it. Being too cold at night, we cut our stay two days short. I assume the problem may have arisen due to the owners having been away for three weeks.

“Fantastic cottage in lovely Peak District village”
Reviewed 20 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

This was a great cottage, well-kitted out with log fire for colder Winter or Spring nights. Ideally situated near all popular towns and walks this was a perfect base for out family
