We had a fantastic short break at the delightful Ivy Cottage celebrating my mothers birthday. The Cottage was spotless, well equipped and had everything plus more to make our stay enjoyable. The location was ideal as we travelled around the local area and nowhere was too far to reach. Although the weather during our stay was cold and frosty, we looked forward to arriving back each day to a warm and cosy Cottage. Matt and Becky were pleasant and friendly to deal with and made us feel welcome. We would, most definitely, be going back here in the future and will be recommending to our friends and family.
Matt and Becky have made Ivy Cottage a perfect retreat...warm and cosy for our winter break with every aspect of the visitors needs being taken into account. Immaculate decor with real attention to detail. Comfy beds and ample facilities, from a well stocked cupboard of towels to a fully equipped kitchen, Ivy Cottage is a true home from home experience. Perfect location for walkers or shoppers, so we did both!!!! Just brilliant. Will be recommending highly to friends and family.
Comfortable, cosy, immaculately clean and very well equipped cottage. Very helpful owners. Would definitely recommend
We had a great weekend with friends at Ivy Cottage. The cottage itself is beautiful and big enough for a group of friends to enjoy. Big kitchen, good dining room and we entertained ourselves with the board games at night.
The Heights of Abraham in Matlock is a good walk and only 10 minutes drive from Ivy Cottage. We enjoyed dinner at The Old Bowling which is 2 minutes walk from the cottage. We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat in the Peak District.
We had a great stay at Ivy Cottage. The cottage is beautiful, and is very well equipped. The owners are lovely. I would recommend Ivy cottage its well worth a visit.
Stayed in this delightful cottage for our friends birthday. 6 ladies, we had a fabulous time, the cottage is beautiful and very well equipped. It was very clean and we felt right at home. All facilities were spot on. The showers were amazing. Thank you to the owners, they certainly have gone that extra mile to make your stay very enjoyable and comfortable. I go away quite a lot and would go as far as saying this is one of the best. We will definitely be returning. A massive thank you from the ladies of Nottinghamshire.
Three couples spending New Year together at Ivy Cottage, and on arrival we was very impressed!
Although smaller than the pictures portray it was immaculately clean. As one couple of our party was arriving late, we decided that we would just chill on the Friday night until they arrived, lit the fire in the living room and turned on the TV. The Sky is deceiving, as there were only basic free view channels, and when the third couple arrived, the viewing comfort of 6 in that room was not great. The TV would be better placed where the armchair is! However, we was not there to spend time indoors watching TV!
Most of our other time was spent around the dining table, played games, of which we took our own, but there is a fantastic selection available!
We cooked some niblles, and there was everything available to cook with!
I think a small hand held vacuum would be of great benefit, pastry crumbs do tend to go everywhere and I find mine a godsend!
New Years Eve was a walk in towards Darley Dale, a spot of lunch, and a wander to the village pub in the evening!
A great time was had by all!
