Why The Owner chose Braunston

Ivy house presented us with an opportunity to restore a grade 2 listed Georgian farmhouse back to its original glory. We began our transformation over the course of 5 years to incorporate original features with a contemporary twist. We use the property as our UK Home for part of the year, due to its fantastic village location with easy motorway access to all areas of the uk whilst surrounded by open countryside.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

A Stunning private Leisure complex extending to a large indoor heated pool and family room which provides a fantastic venue for family & friends to get together and create priceless memories.

Perfect Property For Family Getogether!

  • 5 of 5

Ivy House proved to be the most perfect venue for our special family weekend. Stephanie had been very helpful and accommodating in advance of our stay and we found everything was as described and facilities lived up to expectation. The layout means there are areas you can all come together but plenty of options for quieter relaxation. The leisure facility was superb. We made full use of the BBQ & fire area, the large screen & seating area for games. The pool was a massive hit and hot tub a delight! The spacious grounds offered excellent facilities for all manner of garden games. We took our own equipment which for us included boules, croquet, badminton, cricket, lawn darts, quoits and the grand finale - a space hopper relay race around the mown track at the top of the lawn! A great time was had by all!

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Ivy House. There was a group of 20 girls for my sister’s hen do and there was plenty of space for us all. The house has everything you could need and more with the swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, cinema room and gym so it’s perfect for a large group. The grounds are also extensive. The dining room seats 12 so we made the most of the hot weather and set up a table outside with our own equipment which I liaised with Stephanie beforehand. All in all it’s the perfect house for a group get together!

A fantastic house for parties/gatherings

  • 3 of 5

This house was great for what we wanted, a family gathering for a wedding nearby. The pool was great and the children loved it. The home is beautifully decorated throughout and the setting was private and peaceful. There was great space downstairs for everyone to spread out. The reason I have not given it 5 stars is because there were a lot of maintenance issues with the house, broken toilet seats, showers not working correctly, bath leaking, shower tray blocked, door knobs falling off, outside lights not working, loose fence over fish pond, hoovers not working etc. I also had issues with the cleanliness of the property, it was not done to a suitable standard particularly in the party room. The home and kitchen cupboards are packed with lots of things but there was no corkscrew, no brush, no dustpan and brush and although it states there was an iron we certainly couldn’t find it ! I feel these are all minor things that could very easily be remedied and make this house a 5 star. I did report all the issues to the agent on departure and I very much hope they sort them out as it sadly lets this amazing house down. Sorry 😐?

Nice family break, ideal for large groups,

  • 5 of 5

Great sized place, excellent pool, hot tub and sauna area. The cinema room was also a good place to spend time. A good sized place for around 15 people. We stayed here with young children and it worked. The only downside is the strange layout - with a staircase to the kitchen area which is potentially hazardous for kids but thankfully we had no issues. Overall a great place for large groups - the best thing I could say is we would be back of the occasion arose!

Great location and property for family celebrations

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Ivy House celebrating a big birthday in the family. Everything we needed was on hand when we arrived and Stephanie was really helpful with information beforehand about travel cots and local pubs to eat. On Saturday we walked along the canal tow path to the Admiral Nelson pub and had a super meal. The area is very pretty and it was easy to get out and about for a walk. The property itself is beautiful and very spacious, and very comfy. If you're looking for somewhere to host a family get together this is it. All the facilities made it really easy to cater for a large group and the cinema room, pool area, hot tub and extensive grounds meant we had plenty of options for activities and entertainment to suit everyone aged from 18 months to 65. The weather was fantastic so we made full use of the BBQ and seating area. The house is really easy to find, plenty of parking and a well equipped kitchen plus the extra fridge and bar area meant we could organise a huge shopping delivery and not worry about where to put it all! We were met by Charlotte who showed us around and explained everything and was on hand in case we needed anything. Everyone had an amazing time and we will certainly think about returning next time we want a big family get together like this. Thank you again.
