There are six local village country pubs and several restaurants within 5 minutes drive of Ivy Cottage, including Tuckers Grave inn at Faukland, which has changed little over the last 100 years, serving local ales and scrumpy cider direct from the barrel to the glass. The famous George Inn at Norton St. Philip is only 1 mile away, is one of the oldest Inn's in England and has the longest running licence dating back to the 14th century. It was build as a guest house for the monks of Hinton Charterhouse Priory ion the 12th century and was at the centre of a battle in 1685 between the Kings troops and the pretender to the throne, the Duke of Monmouth.There are several nearby local villages and the small market towns of Frome and Bradford on Avon.
