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.... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More

This was our second visit to Ivy House (Barton Cottage), and this stay was as good as the first. Our cottage was clean, well-appointed, and quiet, a welcome refuge at the end of the day. Ivy House is ideally located as a base for visiting all the cultural and historical sites in the region. The September weather was fantastic, and... More

Great people, great place, close to the beach, kids had a great time, Andy and Emma are discrete but ready to help and give advice at any time. We were lucky to have a warm September week and enjoyed our stay at Ivy House. We recommend the place and would be happy to come back.

The location is perfect for visiting the various D-Day memorials. The cottages are well equipped very comfortable, you can easily settle in relax and enjoy. The property is a lovely setting, quiet and very country. Andy & Emma are so sweet and friendly and a wealth of information. It a great place for not only a couple but a family.

We stayed here in early September and had a lovely time. The cottage we had was great - it's so quiet and you can hear the sea. We sat outside in the evening sun and it was lovely to have the open space with swings etc. Other families stayed with older children and I could see them loving playing and... More

Me and my husband booked this cottage for a little break and to visit D-Day beaches. You can walk to Utah beach,and you need to drive to other famous beaches (between 30 minutes to an hour away, (Omaha and Sword beaches). Cottage had everything we needed, and nearest shops etc 5- 10 minutes down the road. The cottage was clean,... More
