Ivy Cottage is a detached country cottage with reversed style accommodation. It has original exposed oak studded walls, timber beams and floorboards, with an inglenook fireplace and wood burner in the large open plan lounge/dining room, which also has a double sofa bed if required, increasing the sleeping capacity up to 8 guests. The lounge/dining room is located adjacent to a separate fully equipped kitchen on the first floor. The wooden staircase leads down to the 3 double bedrooms and the family bathroom, the master bedroom having en-suite facilities. There is direct access via the French doors to the patio area and BBQ in the rear garden which overlooks the beautiful Somerset countryside. The front garden and the off street parking can be accessed from the rear garden via the gated fenceline.

Woolverton is a lovely rural hamlet located on the A36 miles south of Bath. Ivy Cottage is sited on a small country lane leading to the villages of Laverton, Lullington and Faukland. Set in the countryside, there are many fine country walks meandering around the River Frome which has remains of several 16th Century water powered woollen mills., including Rode Mill which is where the colour dye "Royal Blue" was invented. 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. It is also in easy reach of the world heritage city of Bath and historical castles at Nunney and Farleigh Hungerford. Other famous places such as Stonehenge, Avebury, Gladstonbury, Longleat and Stourhead are also in easy driving distance.. There are several local golf courses, rowing clubs, fishing lakes, clay pigeon shoots and Leisure centres, for the more active ones amongst us, all within easy reach of the cottage. If you want to explore further away, the coasts of North Somerset, South Devon and the Jurrasic coast of Dorset are all within 1.5 hours drive.
