Ivy Cottage - Winster, Derbyshire, The Peak District, England - Sleeps 7

Ivy Cottage

Ivy cottage is a luxury award winning holiday cottage that is located in the picturesque village of Winster within the Peak District. It can accommodate up to seven guests (plus two infants in cots) but is equally as popular with couples and smaller groups.

This beautiful detached stone house offers spacious accommodation and dates back to the early 1800’s. It affords a beautiful south facing garden where guests can relax whilst enjoying the lovely views over surrounding the countryside.

A short stroll takes you into the heart of the village which was formerly an ancient lead-mining village dating back as far as the doomsday book (1086). Winster with its busy social calendar of events, is an attractive village with many medieval buildings reflecting the hey-day of its mining legacy. There are many narrow and intriguing pathways that lead up and around the village which has a National Trust Historic Market Hall, two excellent pubs, two churches, a well stocked village shop and post office, playing fields, basketball, tennis courts and several playground areas.

The Peak District National Park is one of the country's best loved landscapes with its wild heather moorlands, gentle limestone dales and dramatic gritstone edges. With over five hundred acres of rolling countryside to explore, it has many excellent walks and spectacular natural backdrops. There are also a wide range of attractions in the surrounding area including: Bakewell; Matlock; Heights of Abraham; Buxton; Chatsworth House; Carsington Water and the High Peak Trail to name just a few.

Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday or a base from which to explore the Peak District National Park, Ivy Cottage is a perfect retreat.
