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 property and perfect for any celebration/party just geared up so well for any occasion!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at Ivy House to celebrate my 50th Birthday. It's simply the perfect Party Venue. We had family during the week and swapped for Friends and a party at the weekend. This house is just so well suited and it's almost as if it's been designed for partying. The great part is that there are 2 distinct parts to the property - the old house where all the bedrooms are and then the new area which is a fair distance away with kitchen, gym, party room and the pool. So should anyone want to get a bit of quiet time they easily can without be distrurbed. The fixtures and fittings are top notch and the tech is great from the entertainment system and the integrated music throughout. The owners were very accomodating and seemed very relaxed about everything so all in all highly recommended by us and our whole party.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 16 adults and 4 children staying for a long weekend for a school reunion. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The house and grounds are huge and well equipped. The indoor swimming pool, steam room and outdoor hot tub were well used by us. The only thing was the dining table not quite big enough to fit us all round. Would love to come and stay again!

Stayed at Ivy house over the bank holiday weekend for a 30th Birthday and we all had a fantastic time!

Months leading up to the weekend, Stephanie was quick to reply back to me with all my questions and even let us come and have a look at the house prior to our stay. House manager was lovely, showed me round the house and responded to our promptly when we had a leak from the shower and from the torrential rain down pour. The pool and hot tub were the highlight!

The kitchen was well equipped and fortunately we had a chef in our party!

The rooms were all a great size.

Thank you for everything and look forward to staying at your house again!

Fabulous house and location

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely amazing. We spent a long weekend with a family group of 17, ages ranging from 5 to 82, and there was something for everyone. We had plenty of space to either be together as one group or find separate hidey holes to escape. The whole experience was one of luxury and relaxation.

The two storey Georgian manor house has been beautifully restored and decorated. All the bedrooms are doubles, most include single beds and there is plenty of room in each. The bedrooms are all beautiful but the master bedroom and en-suite on the first floor are stunning. There is also a water bed and en-suite on the second floor plus a large family bathroom on each floor.

The house has been very tastefully extended to the rear adding a large very well equipped kitchen, a comfortable lounge, an impressive gym, a large luxurious cinema/leisure room complete with bar and a wonderful pool, Jacuzzi and sauna.

The kitchen is amazing, the owners have thought of everything. As well as all the equipment you'd have at home and more, there are several fridges and freezers and a hot-plate cupboard. The open seating area off the kitchen is ideal for family groups and looks out onto a patio area with a large fish pond and the garden beyond. The gym is surprisingly well equipped and the plush cinema/leisure room has seating for approx. 14, a large screen and projector, Sky TV and patio doors that lead onto the outside barbeque kitchen area.

The pool is very impressive. It is large enough for several adults to swim and the Jacuzzi is shallow enough for little ones to use as a small pool. The owners have kindly provided an assortment of armbands, snorkels, flippers etc. in the sauna room which also has an additional shower.

There are several outside seating areas plus a hot-tub which over looks the 6 acre garden and rolling fields beyond.

Finally, the house is opposite Braunston Marina on the canal which is perfect for walking and exploring.

We loved it and will definitely return.

Fantastic House for Special Family Birthday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house for a long weekend to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday. It’s a beautiful mix of Georgian and modern and there is space for everyone to mix and be together and also to have quiet time if needed. It met the needs of all 12 of us from 10 to 82 so that meant we had a very relaxed time! We had lovely weather so made the most of the lovely grounds, bbq area and hot tub as well as the pool and the party room. The owners were on hand if we had queries and even popped in to help when we were stuck with something. It’s a really well thought out property with everything you need and the built in coffee machine was amazing! We all slept well in our beautiful bedrooms and I can recommend the water bed! It’s located near lovely canal walks, a great butchers in Braunston and Daventry is within easy reach for supplies. We had a very special weekend and hope to be back for our next family celebration!

Hen party

  • 4 of 5

The party loved the house, felt it was an ideal house for the sort of weekend we had planned. All the rooms were comfortable and decorated well. This is a great house if you’re planning on staying in it for the whole time of your visit or staying local - and could possibly be wasted if you were planning on using it as somewhere to sleep/eat only. Pool area was lovely. I arranged a Tesco order to be delivered to the house which I would highly recommend. We also went clay pigeon shooting which was only about a 10 min drive away. That was very enjoyable and a good team activity.
