Very clean, well equipped and spacious cottage. Loved the character of it. Owners were helpful and friendly. Only disappointment for me was the outlook from the front and side, however this did not really detract from the feel of the cottage. Overall the cottage was excellent in so many ways.

We were made very welcome and enjoyed a lovely week in Ivy Cottage. The location was perfect for visiting a wide choice of National Trust properties and touring the area. All of the attractions that we visited were less than 45mins drive from Ivy Cottage. We visited Bath on one day and would recommend the Odd Down Park and Ride: follow satnav BA2 2Read moreAL. Hide
