On Top Of The World

A view overlooking Great Shefford, from just one of the many walks nearby 2 Ivy House. It’s been one whole year, cannot believe it. We have been delighted to host some really lovely guests and are looking forward to a few returns in the near future. Here’s hoping that the next year will be as rewarding. The garden is taking shape and there are encouraging signs that damson jam will be on the breakfast menu again this year.

A Great Start To Your Stay

Afternoon Cream Tea… Homemade scones with strawberry and raspberry jam, clotted cream and a glass of bubbly. Full afternoon tea is also available.

Winter Wonderland

Where in the world is this? Oh yes just up the road but it was stunning. The local children able to toboggan, and some grown ups too! Didn’t fancy the walk back to the top too many times. It’s much easier in the summer.

Garden Flowers

Fresh Seasonal Flowers added to the room, its the little extras that make it special. Please ask us for details
