Hi everyone. I've a gardening question I hope you can help with, pls

My daughter & son-in-law have a very large garden and 3 outhouses/sheds, 2 of which are coming down.
It's been left to grow wild for about 10 years (oh boy, it's like a jungle out there). Part is mainly overgrown weeds, part orchard and the rest is the dreaded ivy!! How can we safely get rid of the awful stuff?
We've been hacking away, but it's all over all sheds, the walls, a trellis, just everywhere.
Can it be killed off without harm coming to animals and children? We live in the UK.
Thanks in advance.
