It is located in the beautiful Georgian village of Freshford which lies at the junction of the Frome and Avon valleys in the southern Cotswolds. Just 5 miles from Bath and 2 miles from the historic town of Bradford on Avon. Freshford has a very good pub (The Inn at Freshford) serving great food and local beer and ciders a few minutes walk from the cottage. .There is also a well stocked village community shop and café.

There are some wonderful walks along the Avon and Frome rivers and the Kennet and Avon canal leading to riverside Inns and areas of local interest (Iford Manor).

All just 15 minutes from Bath by car but the secret of this location is the 9 minute train journey to Bath from the village station, just a short stroll from the cottage. Services run every 30 mins at peak times and hourly thereafter.

Beautiful cottage in a lovely village. Highly recommended. Amazing hosts.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely warm welcome from Robin and Wendy, with all the essentials provided for breakfast on our first morning. Really nice touch and so thoughtful.

The cottage is tucked away in a beautiful village not far from Bath and Bradford on Avon, with the train station at the end of the lane. There are some lovely walks in the area along the river, canal to Bradford on Avon, which is a charming little Saxon town with lots of things to see. Bath is a short drive or even better, a short train journey from the local station, which is a two minute walk down a lovely country lane.

The village has a quaint pub which serves good food with lovely gardens and a great place to start or finish a walk. The whole area is very scenic with stunning views.

The cottage has absolutely everything you need, three lovely spacious double bedrooms, The decor, facilities and cleanliness are of a very high standard and we couldn't fault anything at all. We felt very at home in the cottage. It was so comfortable and cosy.

We loved listening to the chimes of the church bells from the village church and found this very relaxing and peaceful, particularly early evening as the sun was setting.

Robin and Wendy really have thought of everything to make the cottage a homely comfortable place to stay, from beautiful bedding to top top quality toiletries in the bathroom and en suite.

We would highly recommend this cottage and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Thank you Robin and Wendy for making our stay so enjoyable.

Very nice, but tough to find

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased and would definitely go back the next time we're in Bath area. Bedrooms were great and the hosts were very accommodating with some tasty rations for our first breakfast. The place was clean and had everything we needed for a two day stay for a family of five. Loved the fact that the train to Bath was just a short walk from the end of the driveway. Only downside was trying to find the place in the dark. We didn't have navigation system so trying to find Freshford and then the rental in the dark was a challenge. Recommend you make your first attempt during daylight. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Awesome hospitality, wonderful location, nice!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a lovely place to call home for our 8 days.

With the unprecedented snow and ice which occurred, we we delayed in arrival, which the hosts gratefully let us extend for the difference we missed due to the snow.

The hosts also gave us updated information regarding the local weather and road access..

* they also organised some breakfast essentials and found two high chairs for our twin boys to use!

The cottage was perfect for our stay, enough room for three adults and three children (three large bedrooms, two bathrooms). Perfect position near the railway station (Bath/Bristol rail line) and also a short stroll to the Freshford Inn (country Pub)

Lots of nearby walks and lots of wonderful character.

Thank you Robin and Wendy, it was great!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Very happy with the cottage overall, however, whilst upstairs was ideal we found downstairs lounge area very dark and cramped. Unsure how 6 people could sit comfortably. Nice extra touches like shower gell etc.Shame there is nowhere to sit outside. May have been noisy if the cottage attached was occupied.

Lovely village and ideal for touring the area.

Freshford is a beautiful village at the southernmost tip of the Cotswold hills, about five miles southeast 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 characterised 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.
