We had a wonderful stay in Ivy Cottage. Everything was perfect, a clean and complete inventory. We even had some fresh flowers welcoming us! We can certainly recommend this accommodation.

The cottage is in a lovely location with easy access to Bath, Bristol and Wells by car and public transport if you are happy to drive to Keynsham first. The property is well maintained, functional and our children loved playing in the garden. TV reception isn't great, but we used WiFi so didn't need it anyway.

Lovely cottage in fantastic, quiet location in conservation area. Owners seem to have thought of everything in terms of equipment etc. Nice walks in and around village, and handy driving distance from all the places we wanted to visit. Only reservation is that tv reception was very hit and miss, rendering it impossible to watch. Perhaps the owners Read morecould look into signal boosters, or maybe satellite. I cant imagine that the other households in Queen Charlton put up with this every day. Hide

Well located for both Bristol and Bath. As parking in both places is not easy, the Bus Service from Keynsham, some 2-miles away, is regular and takes you right into the town centres.

Ivy Cottage is very peaceful and quiet, the cottage is well equipped. A car is recommended to reach all the destinations aroud; it is possible to get around by bus, but only for the adventurous, as the bus stop is 20 min walk away. We enjoyed our stay very much!
