This is the second time we've stayed at Ivy cottage and it is a well looked after cottage which has great charm and is well appointed.
Matt and Becky provide a welcome basket with some basics ie tea and coffee but also some lovely touches in cream eggs (Easter visit), maltesers and a bottle of wine.
The cottage has everything we need and more and as keen walkers their are some lovely walks right on the door step with Buxton and Matlock both short drives away.
If your looking for a cottage in the Peak district you cant go far wrong by choosing this one.
Ivy cottage is situated in the village of Winster which has 2 pubs serving food and a village shop. Good walks are accessible from the village. It is close to Bakewell and the Chatsworth Estate where we spent a very pleasant day. The cottage itself is spacious, very well equipped and provides a comfortable holiday. We were 6 adults and there was plenty of space to accommodate us. Owners live nearby and were contactable should there be any problems. We would highly recommend Ivy Cottage and the beautiful surrounding area.
Ivy Cottage is ideally located. The village pub and shop are minutes away and the walks we did were from the doorstep no need to drive anywhere. The cottage was really homely, a good size, ideal for families or groups of friends everything is thought of and we wanted for nothing. Even had our first barbecue of the year! Matt and Becky made us welcome and were there for any help or advice. The welcome basket of goodies was a lovely touch. We all said we would come again and highly recommend it.
Such a nice cottage in a great area. Never been to the Peak District before but was so glad we stayed in Winster. Right by Bakewell and Matlock, this village is in a great location and has everything you'd need in a few minutes drive/walk.
The place itself is amazing. Really well kept and has everything you could need for your stay. I went with just my partner although this place could accommodate a lot more people without being on top of each other. Especially loved the big bathroom with his and her sinks and the living room - really cosy and fully equipped with sound system, now tv/sky etc.
Would definitely go back again and would probably do it in the summer to enjoy the garden/BBQ area.
Great place, great hosts!
Sad to leave Ivy Cottage this morning but we both had a wonderful week away. The cottage was beautiful, well furnished and equipped and such a great size with private off road parking for two vehicles. Plenty to do within a short drive including Matlock Bath, Chatsworth Estate, Dovedale and Mam Tor/Kinder Scout and Bakewell all of which we done. There is also Chatsworth House/Gardens/Farmyard, Heights of Abraham and Gullivers theme park amongst a heap of other things to do. Plenty of walks which start from Winster and two pubs in the village, we didn't eat at either of these so cannot comment but both are within walking distance of the cottage as well as a village store.
We would recommend a visit to Chatsworth Farm Shop, the food and choice in there was incredible, just wish we'd been there sooner!
Thanks for such a great experience for our first time at the Peak District. We will definitely recommend Ivy Cottage to our friends and family!
We had a great time staying here. The cottage is really cosy and well-laid out with lots of space and comfy furniture.
Winster is handy for all of the attractions, nicely rural but also near to Matlock for the supermarket (Sainsburys). We found it easy to travel all over the national park from here.
We are looking forward to returning at some point soon
A fabulous place to dust off the cobwebs, the house was beautiful & very comfortable, cosy rooms with fireplaces, real kitchen with all mod cons, great dining table, music with good speakers, nice selection of cd's, great board games.
All bedrooms were cosy, one had en suite the rest shared a very modern & stylish bathroom, with a big bath tub & separate shower.
We loved the welcome basket, included essentials as well as wine & chocs. How great is this place . The owner was at hand with inf.
will def comeback there.
