Accommodation

The Ivy House is a large, rambling, stone-walled house, rebuilt in the 1970s, with splendid views overlooking the river. It offers simple, cheap and cheerful self-catering accommodation, ideal for a group of friends who are willing to share facilities. It is centrally heated, and has a comfy lounge, dining room with open fireplace and large terrace, a small rose garden and a splendid large room with an open space of 5m x 5m and an excellent acoustic, usable for parties, group meetings, small dances, music practice, yoga, etc. It is equipped with a music systems, a large collection of vinyl and CDs, and a combi TV for watching films on VHS. There is also a "bring and borrow" library and free wifi connection.

The building has three separate areas, two of which are self-contained: the "house", the "apartment" and the attic.

Pricing

B & B, ramblers' dorm.

I really want people who are going to stay for at least two nights, preferably longer, so pricing reflects this: £8 p.p. (dorm) and £15 p.p. (bedroom) per night, plus £10 (each bed) for the first night.

(So, for example, two people sharing a double bed would pay £40 for the first night, but only £30 for each subsequent night.)

Price includes breakfast, (tea, coffee, juice, cereal, bread & spreads). No service, just help yourself!
