went on a weekend trip with 7 friends to celebrate my birthday, and the cottage is wonderful. Very quaint, the pictures don't do it justice. Looks out onto the countryside and there is a BBQ and is very close to Bath and a walk behind the Red Lion Pub which will take you to The Mill which is lovely for a drink.
Would definitely come again.
Lovely cottage scoring a whopping 10/10 on the cozy-o-meter. Well located for access to Bath, Frome, Glastonbury, and the 24 hour service station just down the road.
Outside it was pouring rain and bone-chilling cold, inside Ivy Cottage no one cared about the weather!!! We were there with our 4 "20-something " children for 3 nights. Ivy Cottage is warm, charming, rustic in feeling but not in function.. The kitchen is well appointed making evenings "in" - playing cards by the fire and eating homemade soup very easy and fun. Good showers and comfy beds with big soft comforters made it a great place for rest and recharging. It is a 15 -20 minute drive
to get to Bath through utterly charming countryside. There is a pub that is walking distance, we found a few quainter ones within a 10 minute drive. Ivy Cottage was better than I thought it could be!!
Only stayed here for a few nights but what a great time we had. If your looking for a private retreat away from it all then this is exactly the place for you. Be warned though, it is very rustic, not unclean by any means, but very well worn shall we say which all adds to the character and feel of the whole place. We stayed here during November and if cozy nights in front of a log fire are what you are after then definitely give this place a good look. There was always someone on hand to answer any questions that we had which was most appreciated.
What a fabulous house in a fabulous location. So cosy and welcoming with everything you need! Loved the fire place, loved the beds, loved the quaint front gate!! Don't ever change a thing!!! Thanks for a fabulous first taste of England!!
