Why The Owner chose Braunston

Ivy house presented us with an opportunity to restore a grade 2 listed Georgian farmhouse back to its original glory. We began our transformation over the course of 5 years to incorporate original features with a contemporary twist. We use the property as our UK Home for part of the year, due to its fantastic village location with easy motorway access to all areas of the uk whilst surrounded by open countryside.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

A Stunning private Leisure complex extending to a large indoor heated pool and family room which provides a fantastic venue for family & friends to get together and create priceless memories.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

Surprise weekend for my daughter for her hen party. Group of 18 aged 14 to 82. All had a fantastic time and could not believe the facilities from the large indoor pool, jacuzzi, hot tub, cinema room, bar. We hired a private chef and had a cocktail class. Owners extremely helpful throughout!

Amazing house for a weekend away with friends

  • 4 of 5

Spent a great few days away celebrating a 30th birthday. We had 18 adults staying and the house was definitely large enough! Although a slight squeeze when all eating round the table, although we did just about manage it. The pool, hot tub and steam room are amazing. The cinema room was great for watching the rugby/ movies. Walks to the canal were great when it wasn't raining. The only small thing was that the pipes are quite noisy sometimes when the water is on which did disturb a couple of people sleeping but there is not really much you can do about that and I think the property and location definitely make it worth while!

A wonderful family celebration weekend

  • 4 of 5

A perfect property for a large family celebration. Space for everyone to come together as a group plus a lovely sitting room for some quiet time out! The pool was much appreciated and we all agreed it would be great to come back in the summer and take full advantage of the outside fireplace and seating areas. All in all a memorable weekend.

Ivy House. 15th-18th Sept 17.

  • 4 of 5

We were a family group of eleven ages 7 to 70. The house is spacious and very well equipped. Everyone found something to enjoy, especially the swimming pool, sauna, hot tub and cinema/tv room. The swimming pool is maintained at a pleasant warm temperature and it is a good size. The house is set in large grounds, mainly grassed and ideal for outdoor games and exercising the dog.

Everyone was happy with their bedroom and we all felt very comfortable. It is worth saying that the house is an easy walk to the canal marina and tow paths which are fine for walks or just sitting. We liked the Admiral Nelson pub and we enjoyed a very good dinner there. Overall an amazing experience!

Barton in the Clay

Wonderful house and grounds; stunning leisure complex.

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic extended family weekend away in celebration was enjoyed by all thanks to the wonderful spacious and comprehensive facilities. Even poor weather couldn't stop us having fun: if you're lucky enough to get good weather the grounds and hot tub, in particular, would be amazing. Thank you Stephanie for letting us have use of your house and all its facilities. Thoroughly recommended.
