“Perfect in every way.”
Reviewed December 13, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

This house is fantastic for a large group. The kitchen has everything you need and the bedrooms are warm and cosy. Presteigne itself is very picturesque and has some lovely buildings. We stayed the weekend of the heavy snowfall and we had to stay another night because the roads were impassable. Not a hardship though. Spectacular scenery. A real winter wonderland. We hope to book again for next year.

Lovely cosy cottage with everything you would need. Very clean and tidy. The games room was great for the children. The Cottage was in a beautiful village like a living museum! Would definitely stay again

Presteigne is a lovely little town with everything we needed for a restful week. Ivy House is a very comfortable homely place within a very short walking distance from the shops, restaurants and pubs. The children aged 10 & 2 had space to run around and everything we needed was provided. We would love to visit again

My family and I stayed at ivy house. A lovely big house. There were 12 of us that stayed and there was plenty room. The kids enjoyed the games room and there is a nice garden as well to the rear of house.
The only pity was the weather wasn't that great, but to be expected in Britain.

We are sp pleased that you enjoyed our lovely victorian family house. The games room is a big hit with young and old especially when the weather is unkind.
The house is toasty warm with the logburner as well as the central heating so a great base even in the winter.
Hope you will visit us again soon.
