“Outstanding, just what we were looking for!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Having spent many hours checking web sites Ivy Cottage 'caught my eye'. Seemed just what we were looking for. Having booked it, 6 family members & a young baby had all the usual worries, would it be clean? well equipped? in a good location?
I would have to say that having just returned from a week at Ivy, simply perfect! The cottage was spotlessly clean, every piece of equipment you could ask for (& more) partcuarly well sited, many local walks & within a 15 minute drive of all the local towns & villages. Matt & Becky were very helpful & attentive ensuring that our stay was very comfortable & relaxing.

“Excellent accommodation, hosts and location :)”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Brilliant accommodation for two families to share, one of the best places we have stayed in and the perfect base to explore the local area. The owners Matt & Becky couldn't have been more helpful and have added the extra touches such as a bottle of wine, chocolates on arrival, to let you know that this is really an excellent holiday cottage. The kids loved playing in their 'own' snug/lounge with lots of toys, books, DVDs etc. We will definitely be returning again having loved the accommodation and area around Matlock so much.:)

“Home from home”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Ivy cottage is a beautiful, clean, well equipped cottage. It really is a home from home. The location is perfect with attractions and amenities only short distances away. The welcome basket was a lovely touch. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

“Trying to find anything wrong would be "nit-picking"!!!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Just coming to the end of our week at Ivy Cottage and I can honestly say it is one of (if not THE) best appointed accommodations we have stayed in. Whilst there is not much "going on" in Winster (especially with young-ish children) we were never far from anything to make this an issue (Poole Caverns / Chatsworth / Heights of Abraham / Eyam / Matlock...).
The rooms are beautifully decorated and with plenty of lovely 'little touches' such as the guest reports book and small notices to help you on your way it's impossible not to feel relaxed from the start.
The recommendation would be to have a few first outings planned before arrival so you are not wasting time and take some time top do some of the Winster Walks...we only did one but wished we'd done a couplke more.
Being a road cyclist I took on many of the hills around here (and didn't lose...although I'm not sure that means I won...) and that was a great experience too..
Would not hesiyaye to recommend to friends and family alike.

“WONDERFUL RELAXING BREAK IN SPRING SUNSHINE”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Cottage was very easy to find with excellent parking. Arrived to a very warm welcome by Becky the owner accompanied by her delightful 3 year old daughter who showed us around the property. Lovely welcome pack which was much appreciated. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very warm with everything you could possibly need. The sun was shining every day of our stay and we visited many lovely areas in the surrounding district. Have been visiting the peak district for many years and will certainly return to Ivy Cottage. Thanks Becky and Matt for the high standard of accommodation.
