Ashbourne 6 miles.
Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District, the lovely village of Hollington, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, provides home to a scattering of traditional brick built cottages, old farmhouses and barn conversions, whilst being surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and offering a number of country pubs renowned locally for excellent service and fine cuisine. Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls and many fine coaching inns. In its heyday, during the 18th century, the town was a fashionable social centre and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer with a good selection of restaurants, whilst being regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don't expect a bargain! For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by offering good walking and cycling, whilst Alton Towers is just 25 minutes away!

Previous visitors' comments about Ivy Cottage:
Excellent location, well equipped cottage, very cosy. The little extras the owner had left for us were much appreciated. Also having a secure garden for the dogs was a big bonus.

We had a lovely stay at Ivy Cottage. The cottage was well equipped and we felt well cared for. The cottage had a real home from home feel.
Ms Williams, Mansfield, March 2013
The cottage was very well equipped, very warm and comfortable. We really appreciated the little extras Christine had provided including the tea tray, fresh milk and eggs plus fresh flowers, chocolates and Christmas tree!
Mrs Flanagan, Windermere, December 2012
There was a very friendly personal welcome from the owner together with a welcome tray with tea, coffee, milk, flowers and eggs, which really did make you feel as you were a valued guest. What a great start to a holiday. The accommodation was brilliant and we made use of the owner's field opposite the property to allow our dog a free run each day - he thought that was brilliant. We cannot recommend this property more highly.
