Very Good

“Lovely Cottage”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2019

This is probably the nicest cottage I've stayed in, well appointed, clean & in a great location. I felt the photos on the website didn't do it justice. We really loved the garden room at the back of the property & enjoyed sitting there when it wasn't warm enough to sit outside. Being an old cottage the stairs were quite steep & narrow but this was off set by having a downstairs cloakroom. The bed was comfy with nice quality linen. Best of all for us was its proximity to the river & pub & riverside walks. It's probably not the best place for teenagers unless they're keen on sailing.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review Dudley. Liz

“Clean, comfortable cottage in peaceful location.”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2018

Very nice clean, cosy cottage in peaceful location. We had everything we needed. Enjoyed the south facing garden and just a short walk to a lovely view over River Deben. The Maybush Inn just a few minutes walk away served delicious food. Enjoyed walks locally, visiting Woodbridge and walks in Rendlesham Forest.

Owner's reply: Thanks

“Lovely place in a beautiful location”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2017

This is the second time myself and my sister have stayed at Ivydene for a short break. Ivydene is a beautiful home, well equipped and very cozy. It’s in a ideal location, close to the Maybush Inn that serves great food. I would recommend Ivydene to anyone as we have always enjoyed our stay in this lovely place.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your review As I think you know, you are welcome back anytime
