Set in the remarkably pretty Hope Valley in the Peak District, Ivy Cottage is the quintessentially picture-perfect retreat away from it all. With climbing roses surrounding the beautiful stone mullion windows, step inside and you'll discover a warm and welcoming homestay, complete with two wood burners, three beautiful bedrooms and a stunning garden to call your own. Dog friendly, this is a wonderful escape for couples, families, and friends alike. Its quiet setting and astonishing views make it perfect for peace-seeking folks, whilst the rolling hills of the Peak District are a huge draw for walkers and nature lovers. Set in Castleton in the Hope Valley, this is a gloriously beautiful spot with so many things to do right on your doorstep from walking and cycling to hang-gliding, caving and rock climbing. There are show caves to explore and a castle to discover, whilst the imposing Mam Tor (the shivering mountain), Great Ridge and limestone canyon of Winnats Pass are just a few of the natural wonders of the area.

Special 'Just for Two' rate

A special 'Just for Two' rate applies all year round at Ivy Cottage. The discount is 10% and this is on the basis that only the master bedroom is used during your stay. Please call the office on 01872 553491 if you have any questions or would like to book.


Completely embracing the country cottage feel, the welcoming sitting room is a lovely space, resplendent with wood burner, two sumptuous charcoal grey velvet sofas and a large, squishy green velvet armchair. With countryside views and a Smart TV, there's also a Roberts digital radio with Bluetooth. For non-electrical entertainment, there's some good old-fashioned board games and a selection of books to choose from, including walking guides for the surrounding area to inspire you whether you want to do a few miles or a longer jaunt.


Just wow! We're in love with Ivy Cottage's stunning handmade green kitchen, beautifully topped with a Silestone quartz marble effect work surface and with underfloor heating. It's not style over substance though, as the kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you could need for rustling up meals, with an electric fan oven, induction hob, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, washing machine and all the other essentials including a Nespresso Vertuo coffee machine.

Just next door, set in front of a cosy wood burner, sits the dining table with chairs and bench for six. A wonderful space for mealtimes with gorgeous, exposed beams and dual-aspect windows, the room encourages lingering over each course and every glass of wine, cherishing time together that makes holidays so special.


There are three equally beautiful bedrooms to choose from.

The master bedroom has a stylish wooden king-sized bed, part-panelled walls, gorgeously botanical wallpaper, with dual aspect window overlooking the rolling hills to the front and the garden to the back, dressing table, wardrobe, and a Smart TV. This is a peaceful room with touches of green to evoke the countryside beyond.

Bedroom two in restful cream tones has a gorgeous wrought iron king-sized bed, chest of drawers and stunning countryside views. It has a useful separate dressing area with dressing table, perfect for getting ready for the day ahead.

Bedroom three has a charming French-inspired double bed, original feature fireplace, pretty ivy-themed wallpaper, useful hanging space and country views, with a delightful small second window for dual aspect views.

All the beds are dressed in luxurious linens, cloud-soft bedding and sumptuous cushions and throws to ensure a blissful nights' sleep.


Downstairs, you'll find a wet room shower with underfloor heating and heated towel rail, perfect for wake-me-up morning ablutions or for warming up after a bracing walk over the Peaks. Upstairs, there's a gorgeous family bathroom with overhead shower above a large bath, a must for deep soaks with your favourite book and a glass of something in hand - it has a dreamy view over the garden too!

Outdoor space

Ivy Cottage benefits from both a front and back garden to call your own. To the front, next to the front door and in front of the rose-covered frontage, sits a charming bench - the perfect spot for a morning coffee overlooking the incredible rolling countryside in front of you, with just the sound of the bees and sheep accompanying you.

To the back lies a tiered garden with a terrace complete with table and chairs for dining and a further elevated spot with a table and chairs boasting fantastic views over the cottage and surrounding countryside. Backed by open, rolling fields and landscaped with gentle, naturalistic planting, this is a peaceful spot that once the sun sets, can be lit by warm, twinkling lights. Just magical!


There is on-road parking available directly in front of the cottage.

Babies and children

Ivy Cottage welcomes babies and children. A travel cot is provided.


One well-behaved dog is welcome at Ivy Cottage. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break.

In the Area

Ivy Cottage lies in Castleton in Hope Valley, right in the heart of the Peak District, making it the perfect base from which to explore the uniquely beautiful Peak District National Park. One of the most popular spots in the Peak District, Castleton boasts four astonishing show caves open to the public - Peak Cavern, Speedwell Cavern, Treak Cliff Cavern and Blue John Mine - offering a fabulous peek into life underground. Throughout the year, Peak Cavern holds concerts and events whilst during December the incredibly popular carols in the cavern take place each weekend. Peveril Castle, in comparison, looms high above the village and is a wonderful English Heritage property and well worth exploring - the views from here over Castleton and Mam Tor (the 'shivering mountain') and along the Great Ridge, are spectacular. For the more adventurous, hang gliding from Mam Tor is a popular pastime here, whilst for those who like to keep their feet firmly on the ground, there's walks galore, whether its amongst the hills or along the river, short or far. Castleton has lots of fabulous eateries and independent shops to explore, whilst also being a fantastic base to explore the surrounding area. The fabulous Chatsworth House, with its playground and gardens, is only a 25-minute drive from the cottage and well worth a visit is the award winning Estate farm shop. Other fabulous highlights include Bakewell, Haddon Hall (a medieval stately home), the heated outdoor swimming pool at Hathersage (just ten minutes away) and the Derwent and Ladybower dams in the Derwent Valley, used as the location for filming the world famous 'Dam Busters' film.

Deep in the Peak District in the most magical of settings lives this idyllic retreat, a glorious cottage that's as stunning on the inside as it is on the outside. This one is for the lovers of the good life, a countryside escape away from it all.
