Welcome to North Wessex AONB

A warm welcome…. If it’s beautiful countryside, walking, cycling or eating your after then this area is for you!! Set in the heart of the North Wessex downs,  an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The wildlife is amazing. This week we saw the return of the  great white egret so there was great excitement. I managed to take a very blurred picture because you’ve got to be quick, or patient. Neither of these my strong points so for those of you who’ve never seen one I’ve posted a perfect picture that I sadly cannot take credit for.

At 2 Ivy House we want you to experience all of the above whilst staying in your own space. Our continental style breakfast is offered at an inclusive price. Homemade yogurt, granola, preserves and locally pressed apple juice. All my favourites!!! But you can opt for the cooked option at an additional cost. We have so many local products I just have to use them. Oh… and the local honey is delicious.

In the garden @2 Ivy House we have had an abundance of fruit. Thank you team for helping pick the damsons. Now nicely preserved and ready for the croissants .
