“Beautiful rental, beautiful town.”

We were very impressed with this rental cottage in Freshford. The area is absolutely breath-taking and the small village of Freshford is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. It's also a plus that Bath is only a short drive or train ride away. As for the cottage - it is beautifully decorated and very clean. There was plenty of room for my family of 4 to stay. The owners made sure we were taken care of when we arrived to town late and all restaurants were closed. They went above and beyond to make sure the children had food in their bellies before sleeping for the night! The only problem was the driving in this stone-wall town. It adds to the charm of the village, but it is quite stressful driving around in it (especially for us American drivers!) But - who needs to drive, when there are several gorgeous walking paths to nearly everywhere you could possibly want to go in town or to the local train station. I would recommend this rental to anyone.

“Peaceful”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We enjoyed our stay in this clean and well presented apartment which has a lovely aspect overlooking the garden.
It is very peaceful and we slept well in the large comfortable bed.
Freshford is a very beautiful area in which to stay.
The kindness of Philip and Naomi was much appreciated.

“Beautiful accomodation in excellent location for Bath and beyond...”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at this property for just a few days at the end of a holiday tour of Somerset at the beginning of June. It is located in a beautiful quiet village that has fantastic transport links into Bath by rail. The train stop is an easy and pleasant walk through the village from the property.

The accommodation is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Given my allergies I am incredibly fussy about cleanliness of where I stay, and this is probably the best accommodation I have stayed in to date. The property has been sympathetically renovated to provide a modern space whilst retaining the character, and has those essential touches such as White Company linens and fluffy towels. My husband (6ft 3") really appreciated the roomy shower as he had not be able to fit under one without crouching and squashing himself into tiny cubicles at the previous hotels during the week. You can be assured of a good nights sleep as the bed is large and very comfortable, and there is no noise at all overnight.

We found the owners are that excellent mix of welcoming and helpful without being intrusive, so you can easily relax outside after a busy day sightseeing. Communications with booking, and directions were also good. The chocolate brownies on arrival were a lovely touch!

One of the main points that stuck with us from this trip was how friendly the village is, everyone smiles and speaks as you walk past and the drivers are also very considerate on the narrow roads. There is a community shop and cafe which unfortunately we did not get to, but it would prove convenient for those self catering. We have previously stayed in Bradford-on-Avon which is larger and more impersonal, so will definitely look at Freshford instead for our base in the future.

“Lovely location, stunning inside”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed here for our 2nd wedding anniversary and the place is truly lovely. A beautiful cottage with flowers outside and an archway. As others say, the lane is very narrow, thank goodness we didn't meet anyone coming the other way, but as long as you can drive your car, you'll be fine! Inside, everything is very well done, from the clever use of space ( en suite cubical, shoe rack, shelf for microwave) to the colour scheme, massive comfy bed and the little touches like the milk and brownies and posh toiletries.

Outside, the garden is stunning but it's a bit hard not to feel like you're intruding as the garden is shared by the owners (who are very welcoming)

We had a great long weekend and would recommend!
