After staying early August i emailed the owner to complain & she agreed that Ivy cottage needed TLC & that she was in the process of selling the property. Lovely location & beautiful building but let down by cleanliness, rubbish piled near doorway and decor was not as advertised on website. Such a shame after reading all the lovely reviews...

I stayed here with my family including 3 children in August 2016 and wasn't disappointed. This was our first trip to France and we loved Ivy House. It was an amazing location and well suited for plenty of travelling and touring sites of interest both linked to the war and family based. Communication with Emma was brilliant throughout and the...

Stay at this gite for 5 nights. Self contained with kitchen. Clean & comfortable. We found this location to be great for us. Village of a Saint Maire Du Mont close by. Carentan close by approx 12 km's for super market to refurbish supplies. The village Sainte Mere Eglise also a short distance away. The drive to these villages are...

We stayed here for 3 nights last year while Emma and Andy were still living on the premises. We chose Ivy House because we did a tour with the wonderful Andy and his Bayeux Shuttle and it was very convenient. We liked the idea of cooking our own food and went into Carentan where there is a huge supermarket to...

We read how good is Emma's cooking. As of 2015 Andy and Emma no longer live on site but have moved some way to Portbail. No food is now served at Ivy House. It is also very difficult to find having one small sign pointing in only one direction

We booked the Ivy House based upon the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We were happy with the accommodations over all. We stayed at the Barton Cottage and found it to be a nice, old, quaint cottage. There was a little bit of a musty smell downstairs, but for the age of the building, I think it's to be expected....

I visit Normandy once or twice a year. I have stayed at Ivy House more than once. I love its charm and its historic location and its owners - Andy and Emma. Andy also runs a shuttle business- Bayeux Shuttle, and a Normandy tour business. I study Military history and can tell you their is no better guide for Americans...

What first drew me to the Ivy House was its location near Utah Beach, as it was extremely convenient for my 2 days of touring in and around the area, and allowed my mother, who was traveling with me, a place to relax during the day. What ended up surprising me, and making our time in Normandy even more relaxing,...

We started our month long tour of Europe at Ivy house and couldn't have chosen a better place to begin. Close to Uthah Beach and surrounding areas of Normandy WW2 battle sites. Fun to stay in an historic house and we enjoyed our time spent with Andy, Emma, and the boys. You can't go wrong here and if we ever...
