About Paul Newson

My wife and I run this small holiday business from our home office just outside Bath. We own all

the properties we let and that currently includes two cottages in beautiful Freshford near Bath; one

one bedroom cottage just outside Bath and The Old Museum in Looe, Cornwall.

We have designed the business on our own experiences of travelling and staying in holiday

apartments. Here are our main principles:

• Be as responsive as possible to any email communication from the customer. We try to

answer all emails within the hour.

• Offer interesting, historic buildings in a beautiful and relaxing environment.

• Offer locations that work well without a car.

• Try to make the properties as close to a “home from home” as possible.

• Work hard to keep the standard of maintenance as high as possible.

• We pay a bonus to our housekeeper if the words “spotlessly clean” appear in a review.

• Make the business of booking as simple and straightforward as possible.

• Trust our guests.

• Provide enough information to enable guests to find the property easily.

• Make the check in as simple as possible.

• Provide a stress-free holiday from beginning to end.

Paul Newson purchased this cottage in 2001

• Enjoy cosy winter evenings in with family or friends.

Excellent base for visiting beautiful area

  • 4 out of 5
Spacious, well-equipped, clean and comfortable accommodation in quiet location. Property and facilities as advertised.

Booking procedure very efficient with quick responses from Paul the owner. Would recommend to family and friends visiting the area.

Inn at Freshford just down the hill serves good food. Recommend Seven Stars at Winsley serving excellent food and only short drive away. The Galleries Shop Café in the village has a good selection of provisions and newspapers. The Café is open for breakfast and lunch.

Freshford train station has regular trains to Bath or Bristol. The local village bus service 94 also takes you into Bath with wonderful scenery to be enjoyed on the way. There are lots of lovely walks along the Kennet and Avon Canal and River Avon to Brassknocker Basin, Avoncliffe and Bradford on Avon. Iford Manor and the Peto Garden and Farleigh Hungerford Castle are also a pleasant walk or a short drive and beautiful places to visit.

Freshford is a wonderful village with easy access to many places of interest and The Old Stables is an ideal base.

Ideal property for friends reunion

  • 5 out of 5
Myself and my three friends enjoyed our stay at the old stables. We meet up once a year for a good catch up and wanted something comfortable and peaceful.

The property was well equipped for all our needs and Freshford was a good base for getting into Bath for some shopping, as well as doing the Two Valley walk.

Owner's Response: People often say it is easier to get into Bath from Freshford by the little valley railway than walking in from the outskirts of the City.
Come again soon.

Spacious Cottage in Charming Village

  • 4 out of 5
My wife and I had a delightful week in The Old Stables in Freshford. The listing description was accurate with respect to the location, layout and facilities. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful, particularly since the property we originally booked had become unavailable due to flooding and he provided us with this upgraded accommodation at no extra cost. We enjoyed walking around the pretty village of Freshford and especially eating in the local pub, The Inn at Freshford just down the street. The village is close to Bath and the main carparks in Bath are readily accessible from the cottage. You can even walk down the end of the street and catch the train into the town. There is also bus service into Bath and back and a park and ride carpark nearby.

Although there were just two of us, the cottage has plenty of space for a family with two separate seating areas and 3 good-sized bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped (we cooked all of our dinners in the cottage) and parking is literally at the front door. The master bed was large and comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for showers.

We would recommend this property to a friend or relative.

The Old Stables Cottage at Freshford is charming

  • 5 out of 5
Arriving for the first time in a GB rural place we were very lucky to be accommodated here. The property was clean, well-maintained and well-equipped. John takes care of the 2 cottages in a helpful, always assisting way. He and his wife Caroline are nice and give good advice for day trips to nearby places as well. We enjoyed our time in the beautiful surroundings and had - what a pity - to leave again so soon.

Freshford is a beautiful village at the southernmost tip of the Cotswold hills, about five miles south-east of Roman Bath and three miles west of Bradford-on-Avon. The excellent local pub and restaurant sits by a 16th century bridge, and Freshford also has a tiny railway station with hourly trains to Bath, which is a ten-minute journey, as well as numerous other destinations. There is a local village community shop and café.

The village sits above the convergence of the Frome and Avon rivers and is largely characterized by gracious stone buildings surrounded by fields and woodland. The hills and valleys that surround the village give an endless variety of views and provide habitats for a huge diversity of wildlife and flora. The village has existed since Saxon times, and was given to Bath Abbey after the Norman Conquest. A mill existed here as early as 1086 and there are still remains of one built in the 1540s. In the 19th century stone was mined in the parish and employment included agriculture, brewing, the manufacture of cloth, and their ancillary operations. As one walks these lush river valleys in the mighty footsteps of the Romans, surrounded by the elegantly weathered remains of the Industrial Revolution, one can be forgiven for thinking that this may be one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Sites within 15 minutes drive include the World heritage Site of Bath with the famous Roman Baths and Georgian architecture, excellent shopping and dining facilities, Theatre Royal, Odeon and Art House cinema, rugby at 'The Rec', many festivals and free music most nights and Bradford on Avon with the 14th century Tithe Barn and Saxon church.

Sites within an hours drive include Stonehenge, Salisbury cathedral, Longleat, Bristol , Wells and many National Trust properties.
