  • "Ivet Lowe was perfect in every way."

    The location is fantastic with Carsington water visible from the back of the property. Local pub within walking distance and a short drive to fantastic places in the Peak District and surrounding areas. The property itself was exceptionally clean, comfy beds, plenty of room and great facilities. Hosts checked in with us at the start and end of our trip and left a welcome bottle of wine and chocolate. Would stay again and thoroughly recommend.

    He waited for us to arrive to make sure that the water temperature in the shower would be OK for us, which we greatly appreciated, as I am unable to use a bath. The cottage is very comfortable and spacious, the patio area was lovely to sit out on. The weather was not kind to us, unfortunately, but we did get a couple of chances to sit out. There is a fabulous pub in Carsington, The Miners Arms, the car park is at the back of the pub, the food was lovely, all fresh vegetables, no frozen veg. It is possible to walk to Carsington Water, although, due to the weather, we didn’t get round to it. The visitor Centre at Carsington Water, does really lovely food as well. There are lovely walks around the lakeside, we did a few of the shorter ones.

  • "Fantastic place to stay!"

    We were lucky enough to stay at Ivet Lowe as the flower beds were bursting with colour, a new view every day! We had amazing weather so spent much of the time in the garden enjoying the many different areas to relax, we were almost disappointed that we didn’t get the opportunity to make use of the already prepared fire. The whole property has been done to a very high standard and everything was provided that we could possible need. The location lends itself to exploring knowing that there’s a lovely pub, The Miners, within 10 minutes walk when you get back. (They also do an amazing Sunday roast). We went to celebrate a family birthday but would easily suit a family break or a relaxing getaway.

    Thank you so much for your kind and generous feedback. Really pleased you were able to enjoy the wild flower area and had a great break. Maybe you will be able to use the log burner next time! Thanks again. Property Owner

    Lovely to have a well equipped kitchen with everything needed for a week's stay, and plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses. Quiet rural village, but not too far from facilities. Loads of activities for all the family within easy reach, including nice walks around the reservoir directly from the house. The property owners were very helpful and responsive to any questions we had, and made us feel very welcome. Hopefully we will visit again as it's an excellent property and so much to do in the area we just couldn't fit in.

  • "Just got home from a fabulous stay at Ivet Lowe."

    As you walk into the property it is spacious, comfy and very well equipped. Everything is high end and tasteful. The downstairs is really well planned and everything flows from one room to another and upstairs the beds are super comfy. Everything has been thought through and there was nothing we could think of that would have enhanced our stay any more. We had a problem with one of the toilets and rang the owner who came over straight away and fixed it whilst we were out. He was very apologetic, things happen that are totally out of anyone’s control, but the measure of a person is how they deal with them and we couldn’t fault him. There’s a great pub just down the road that serves good food. All in all it was a great holiday in a fabulous cottage and we will certainly go back again.

    The quality of every detail is perfect and made us feel very at home! The house worked perfectly for 6 adults and the open plan layout made it very easy to all socialise and be comfortable. We didn’t get chance to use the garden as the weather wasn’t great but it would be perfect for socialising outside with views of Carsington Water (when the trees aren’t in bloom). The hosts were fantastic and gave us everything and more but were also left to enjoy our stay. The location was perfect to walk spring Carsington Water and access everywhere in the Peaks. A walk through the village also leads you to the local pub which had beautiful food!

    We arrived through snow, in the dark. We were worried about getting in, and being cold - no such problem, the house was very warm, as the owners had set the thermostat already. For a cottage in a small village it is well outfitted, with some absolutely ridiculous finish for a holiday cottage (eg the dining table is a custom 1 off made from the door of the cottage). Rooms are small, but would only be a problem if you were staying long term.. Kitchen well outfitted and complete, very good layout with the living space. Overall we were really pleased. Highly reccomend.

    We arrived late afternoon and almost missed the house as the sign wasn’t that visible at the end of the drive. It was quite a tight entrance to the drive but plenty room for both our cars. The house was lovely and well decorated though we felt we might have preferred the living room and dining areas to be swapped so we could chill on the couches in front of the fire of an evening. The owner was friendly and helpful when we called with one tiny issue (the spare freezer had been accidentally left switched off and we couldn’t find the switch).
