We had an excellent stay in Ivy Dene. Crich is a lovely village and although the cottage is in the centre we found it very quiet and enjoyed watching the activity. Local friendly pub, convenience store and bakery made life very easy.

The four of us, plus dog, enjoyed a lovely Christmas week at Ivy Dene. The house was cosy and warm upon going through the door, and very tastefully decorated with a beautiful tree aside the bay view window of the sitting room. There was lots of space, the house if a characterful solid construction and despite being in the heart of Crich, it was pRead moreerfectly peaceful. Loved the kitchen which was well provided for in terms of pans, crockery and equipment such that nothing was lacking and the quality of everything was good too. Lots of walking to be had from the doorstep, even if it is wet and muddy, there are lots of quiet lanes for miles. The local pub, Indian restaurant and fish bar were all super and reached by foot within a minute, as was a pleasant artisanal bakery. We loved our stay and hope to return to try the experience during a summer next. Hide

Lovely home from home in excellent location. The cottage was really well equipped, probably the best we've ever had. Very handy location in village centre, with shop, excellent butchers, bakers and fish and chip shop just yards away. Lots to see and do in the area. We would definitely recommend.

Incredibly well equipped, right in the centre of the village (but quiet) with lots of things to do and see in the surrounding area. There is quite a drop (approx 4ft) from the garden to the terrace so children and dogs need to be supervised.

Ivy Dene was extremely clean and unlike many other places I have stayed in, the owners provided a good array of cleaning products and a working hoover so it was easy for us to keep it clean as well.
