Ivy Cottage is the perfect place escape to. It's a stunning cottage that had been beautifully and lovingly restored and has everything you could possibly need, making it a home away from home.
Ivy is in a great location, not just because of the surrounding countryside but because it's close to all the amenities, however it's far enough out to enjoy the peace and quiet. A list of the local supermarkets etc are provided in the visitors guide, including the contact details for the local doctors surgery, dentist or vets if you require them.
The nearest town, Ledbury, is a short drive away through the Malvern Hills, passing through Eastnor and it's castle, and the fields on the other side of the road are lovely to walk around - but watch out for the sheep! The bench at the top of the hill is a very pretty place to sit and watch the world go by, with views of Ivy Cottage and the surrounding farmland.
As for the host - she was faultless. She kept us informed and up-to-date with everything. She has created a wonderful holiday cottage and made our stay unforgettable. The little touches made it even more special.
My boyfriend and I felt very lucky to have been the first guests to stay at Ivy. We have made many memories there and have fallen in love with it. It was very hard to leave! But we will definitely be returning soon. We're sure you'll love Ivy Cottage as much as we do.
