Just come back from 5 days at Ivy House, we stayed in the Hemmingway Cottage and it was fantastic, shower was a little on the small side but the cottage was so cosy and we'll worth the money, the food and drink left in the Fridge by the owners Emma and Andy was a welcome bonus and the area is...

Clean, well equipped with fast wifi and satellite tv and the welcome pack and DVDs are a nice touch. The description of Roosevelt cottage is accurate so we were prepared for the tiny shower room; it's definately cosy. Fantastic location for the beach which we cycled to each day and the local villages are a delight. Good family cycling and... More

Our first trip to ivy house and indeed to the area. We had a very comfortable stay there - everything was easy and relaxed. It was great being able to prepare our own meals and I'd recommend the Boulangerie in the village - the chocolate almond croissants were the best we tasted on our two week trip across France and...

We'd visited Ivy House five years ago. It has changed ownership since then and the new owners have made some improvements. Our cottage was spacious, well-appointed and, in our opinion, very good value for money. Ivy House is in a very quiet location and within walking distance of the beach. We'd certainly recommend it and would be more than happy... More

This was our 5th stay at Ivy House, and was as good as the first. We stayed for a week covering the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, and we weren't expecting to be able to get around the roads easily, so for a couple of days we left the car where it was and walked (and walked....!!). The positiion of Ivy... More

We've just returned from spending a week at Ivy House and it was all we had hoped for. Andy and Emma are wonderful hosts and helped make our stay go very well. It is a beautiful setting in the Normandy countryside, surrounded by a few other small homes with bursting flowers and animals, and an easy walk to Utah Beach.... More

I can't improve on the review below by DVDANDSZN from New York, which was thoughtful, fair and insightful. I will say that we found Emma both delightful and helpful. And because there is so little commercial development around Utah Beach, this is a wonderful spot from which to explore the very impressive museum and monuments there. The Utah Beach landing... More

We chose Ivy House for a stay in Normandy with my father-in-law who hadn't been back since he landed in 1944 shortly after D Day. The location was good, the cottage clean and well equipped, not luxurious but perfectly adequate and good value for money. The food provided by Emma for our first breakfast was very welcome, since we arrived... More

Ivy House is a great place to stay if you are interested in the local WWII tourism. We stayed in the Hemingway house and it was perfect for the two of us - the owners even left us eggs, bread, coffee, juice and milk in the kitchen. It is a very quiet area but you can ride a bike anywhere.... More
