A really lovely place to stay everything had been thought about to the simplist touches e.g I only drink peppermint tea so having had it with my breakfast when we arrived back after our day out peppermint tea bags were in our room. The areas for the guest were amazing and our host were so lovely.

Large room and bathroom, very clean, comfortable king size bed, complimentary biscuits (excellent), bottles of water and milk in the fridge Bedroom was very quiet surprisingly considering that the house is located just opposite to...

3 lvy Cross is in an excellent location for visitors to Shaftesbury and has good parking. Received a friendly welcome and shown the excellent large bedroom overlooking the road, both bedroom and adjoining bathroom first class. Really enjoyed the full English breakfast and pleased that asking for it to be served a little early was not a problem. I hope...

We stayed for a night (we wish it had been longer!) at 3 Ivy Cross. The welcome, the room and the breakfast were first class. We had a great nights sleep in a very comfortable, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated room - and this was followed by a delicious breakfast. Michael and Sally were knowledgeable about the town, and very...

Excellent B & B, comfortable, immaculately clean, great position. Hosts were both charming and helpful. The breakfasts were as good as you can get and the 'Full English' was cooked superbly. All in all one of the best places we've stayed at.

I stayed here with my 'other half' for one night as we attended a party close by - and I was really very impressed - I'd recommend 3 Ivy cross to anyone. We had a lovely warm welcome from the start and we're shown our lovely spacious room (overlooking the front). The room was immaculately clean and you could tell...
