The surrounding countryside is a mixture of woodland and farmland, with the Ashby Canal and Shackerstone Steam Railway nearby. Congerstone is on the National Cycle Network and there are plenty of lovely walks in the vicinity, including the Ivanhoe Trail, canal pathways and through the woods to the temple ruins where Handel is reputed to have written The Messiah. Tourist attractions, places of interest and major business venues are within easy reach.
Parts of Old Ivy House date back to the 13th century and it was a working farm until very recently. Oak beams abound-original wooden floors, log fires, brass beds and a plethora of antique furniture all contribute to an atmospheric and perfect environment for your stay.
We have four double bedrooms which are all en-suite and a twin bedded room with private bathroom. The rooms are named after the local villages; Market Bosworth, Shackerstone, Cadeby, Kirkby Mallory and Twycross. One of our bedrooms is furnished with a super king sized bed and has a luxury bathroom with a dressing area. For that special occasion or just as a treat, or even as a family room, it will be a memorable stay. Just a short walk away is the Horse and Jockey, our local pub, which has an excellent and highly recommended restaurant.
