Absolutely loved our Christmas stay at this cottage, would definitely recommend this to friends and family! The owners were always on hand if we needed anything and we will definitely be returning!

Nice location, quiet, near some really nice walks. Ideal amount of privacy for two people fancying a weekend away together.

A perfect place for a relaxing break. We stayed for a week and found it very peaceful. Garden House is a well furnished clean property with lovely decoration throughout and a very romantic feel. 10 out of 10. We will certainly be back.

We couldn't have been happier. It was peaceful and quiet in beautiful surroundings; the house was perfect for two.

A lovely cottage in wonderful surroundings. The cottage has some lovely touches and felt very homely. It was a very private cottage even though it was in the grounds of the owners home. It was comfortable and cosy with everything we needed. Would recommend to any couple who like to get away from city life.

A peaceful and romantic location, close to walks at Carsington water. A lovely cosy little cottage, was great to have a wood burner for cosy nights in. It was the perfect place for our 1st wedding anniversary.

A great location with wonderful views and an excellent base for sightseeing with many attractions within easy reach. The Garden House was beautifully decorated and furnished, spotlessly clean, warm and very comfortable. It would be great to return in the summer months as the garden area looks lovely and ideal for drinks/meals outside.

The owners were unfriendly, and although living on site, made no effort to greet us, see if we had settled in and if everything was alright. We expect to take most things with us for a self-catering holiday, but thought there would have been a few dishwasher tablets etc., and firelighters and matches for the first basket of logs which was provided for the wood burner. The only consumables we were left were 1 J cloth and 1 1/2 toilet rolls. There were no oven gloves or scales in the kitchen. The central heating didn't run mid-morning to mid-afternoon, so it was cold at times. On the positive side, the cottage is in a secluded, rural location within easy reach of many local attractions The holiday lacked the personal touch, and was just average, not 5 star. Shame!

My partner and I booked a two-week holiday in order to relax. What a mistake that turned out to be! We discovered upon arrival that the hot water was not working in the house; the boiler was padlocked behind a cupboard so we could not make any attempt to resolve the issue ourselves. The owners had left two contact numbers; one was an incorrect number and the other went straight to voicemail every time we called. They had advised that if we had any issues we should go to their house to speak to their son as they were on holiday themselves for the first week of our stay; however, they neglected to mention that he was out of the house 12 hours a day for work and therefore was very difficult to reach. We eventually managed to contact their son after five days of boiling water on the hob to have a bath - the only way to wash, as the "above-bath shower" turned out to be hand-held only and on the same supply of cold water. Their son was very obliging and called a plumber for us, so the problem was finally resolved six days into our holiday. Not a good start! When the owners returned, they didn't even mention the lack of hot water, let alone apologise or offer a refund for it. In fact, they were pushy and abrasive, knocking on the door at 10am demanding our dirty towels and refusing to leave until we handed them over. Their return also signalled the arrival of their dog, who continually came into the house, jumping up onto our sofa and bed, until the only possible solution was to keep all the doors shut at all times. Given the hot weather, this was less than ideal. The quality of the property was about average - not what you would expect for a five-star rental. The bed was quite hard and uncomfortable, there were hairs in the bath drain, and the kitchen hob was grimy when we arrived. We did love the wood-burning stove! We were also surprised to find that we had been given two toilet rolls, three dishwashing tablets and one dishcloth for the entire two weeks! Given the rather disconcertingly demanding sign in the kitchen insisting that the house be kept clean this was rather less than we would have expected. We were given no bin liners, no soap, no washing powder and no indoor drying rack for our clothes. This meant we were dependent on the outside washing line... which broke shortly after our arrival, having completely rusted through. The kitchen extractor fan was also broken, meaning that the smoke alarm went off several times a day, and the owners had also neglected to mention that they were having building work done on their own house, meaning we were woken up at 8am most mornings of the second week on what was supposed to be a relaxing holiday. We managed to salvage our holiday purely because the surrounding area is so beautiful - we were situated very close to Carsington Water, which has a lovely watersports centre, and went on lots of walks and ate at some very nice local pubs. I would definitely recommend a trip to this area of the Peak District - as long as you find anywhere else to stay! As a nice added extra, we have since found that this property has two listings on Trip Advisor, presumably to hide the other negative review given! Have a search for Garden House, Kirk Ireton. http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/VacationRentalReview-g1847735-d3415021-Garden_House-Kirk_Ireton_Derbyshire_England.html#reviews

Everything, honestly had a great few days away. Cottage was lovely, very clean and the views are amazing! The owners are so friendly and helpful. Perfect few days away and would definitely book again in the future and would recommend it to anyone. The surrounding areas for walking are breathtaking.

We stayed at Garden house at the end of May and thoroughly enjoyed it! The cottage has everything you need for a very comfortable holiday (even down to an egg slicer!) The views are amazing and you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but actually within a few minutes in the car you can visit some wonderful places such as Carsington Water, Heights of Abraham (caves and cable cars) Bakewell (beautiful place where you can post a REAL bakewell pudding) and Alton Towers is about half an hour away. Upon arrival the table was laid out for dinner which we thought was a lovely personal touch. The cleanliness throughout was fantastic. The only downside was the shower, as it is a handheld one, so would be great if there was a hook and a shower curtain for ease of use! We also found that phone signal's varied here. I have Vodafone and managed to pick up a signal but my boyfriend is on Orange and didn't pick up a signal at all. Also our 3G didn't work. This is by no means a criticism, as we thought being in a rural spot this may happen, we just thought it was a good point to inform others. We were also met a few times by the owners dog who was very friendly :) We would definitely recommend this cottage to others and would love to go back again.

We loved the cottage and the garden. The cottage was in an ideal setting in the tranquillity of the countryside. It felt as though we were in the middle of nowhere, but the village of Kirk Ireton was only a mile and a half away. We will definitely book again, and would recommend the cottage to friends and family.

The cottage is situated in a beautiful location very near to lovely walks. We had a small child and the cottage suited our needs perfectly. We would recommend to couple or very small family to stay at this cottage.

Me and my husband stayed at this amazing cottage for Christmas 2015. On our arrival we were greeted with a lovely Christmas card and bottle of wine. It was warm and very welcoming and more than lived up to our expectations. The cottage was clean tidy and well equipped and the views and surrounding countryside were breath taking to say the least.It is certainly well located for exploring the Derbyshire countryside. Contrary to other reviews we found the owners were non intrusive, but on hand at all times and were very helpful and friendly. Their dog Dotty was adorable who I miss so much. I would definitely recommend this cottage to family friends and anyone who is thinking of going here. Me and my husband will definitely be returning as we loved it so much.

The cottage was an actual cottage. It was also quiet and the surroundings were beautiful. All in all the holiday was great and the cottage is highly recommended.

I loved the peaceful atmosphere of Garden House. The views across the fields were great. I visited in February, so needed the heating on all the time, but the heating kept the cottage very cosy, and using the log burner was a bonus. It is really easy to reach interesting places to walk, straight from the door of the cottage.

The place was beautiful and remote perfect for a quiet Christmas, cosy living room with wood burning stove, kitchen with everything the photos do not show how welcoming it is. The area is stunning with many places to visit and wander around, including towns and villages not to mention the countryside.
