Guestbook comments from the manager

I just had to tell you what a wonderful holiday we had in Ivy Cottage. It is a beautiful Cottage with stunning views across the Amber Valley. It was spotlessly clean well equipped with everything there that we could possibly need & was furnished to a very high standard, was cosy with comfortable beds & the bedrooms especially were so pretty as was the lovely garden. The welcome tray was also greatly appreciated after a long journey. We had some lovely walks through beautiful woods where the wild garlic looked like snow intermingled with bluebells & we've never seen such a great variety of birds all in one area. We visited Matlock & Bakewell. Haddon Hall , Chatsworth & Hardwick Hall which were all in easy reach. Our holiday was totally relaxing peaceful & absolutely perfect , in fact all 4 of us said that we've never stayed anywhere before that has got everything. The Cottage is in a beautiful part of the Country & we will definitely be back possibly in September/October to see the Autumn colours. With kind regards from 4 very satisfied customers who felt they had, had a taste of heaven.

Lovely homely cottage

  • 5 of 5

The property was just what we wanted. It was very clean, well equipped and in a lovely area. It was in a very quite area but only a few miles from Matlock, Matlock Bath and Chatsworth. It is a very large property with very pretty gardens and a beautiful outlook. Would certainly recommend this property.

Immaculate cottage fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate cottage .Six friends had a lovely long weekend here 28th April - 1st May '17 for a forty ninth birthday. Everything you could want was catered for from the log fire to board games. Cannot recommend Ivy House enough the owner greeted us when we arrived the views are fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Milltown is a peaceful village, gathered around the Miners Arms pub and with lots of leafy lanes leading off into the countryside. There are walks galore in this beautiful valley. Wander along to Ashover with its village stores and three more pubs or set off in the opposite direction to find Ogston Reservoir with its colourful dinghies bobbing about on the waves.

Matlock Bath with the Heights of Abraham cable cars, Lumsdale with its secret waterfalls and the Peak Steam Railway are a must for adults and children alike. So too is Carsington Water with all its water sport activities, cycle hire and adventure playground. Add a visit to stately Chatsworth House, a nostalgic tram ride at the National Tramway Museum and a trip into the wilds of the Peak District National Park and you will need to stay for a second week.

Nearest pub - Milltown 0.25 miles.

Nearest village shop - Ashover 1.5 miles.

Nearest supermarket - Matlock 5 miles.
