Bath

Close to the World Heritage, Roman City of Bath, Freshford is set in an area designated 'an area of outstanding natural beauty' and is a 'Conservation village' all this means that it's retained it's historic architecture and landscape.

Very much a living village with always lots going on, a thriving village school, Shop and cafe, Post Office, Doctors Surgery and of course a wonderful country pub down by the river. With a rich history going back to Saxon times, several textile mills survive, now residential, weavers cottages, Manor house and even an old brewery.

Freshford railway station provides frequent services to Bath and mainline services to London and in the other direction to the south coast. The Kennet and Avon canal runs close by and it's a lovely bike ride to Bath just 5 miles level ride and there's a great pub and floating cafe on a barge along the way. in the other direction is Avoncliffe with its amazing aqueduct that carries the canal high over the River Avon below. Here there's a great cafe as well the old the Cross Guns pub with it's terraces running all the way down to the river bank. A little further on down tow path is the gem of Bradford on Avon with it's enormous 14th century Tithe Barn and plethora of great little shops, cafes and restaurants. If you fancy getting on the water, it's possible to rent a day boats, canoes or bicycles from the near by Dundas Canal Visitor Centre.

There's great walks in all directions, one takes you through Friary wood alongside the river to Iford, were a stone bridge with a statue of Britannia allows you cross the River Frome to Iford Manor. Famous for it's beautiful italian inspired Peto Gardens, designated Grade 1 in the National register of Historic Parks and Gardens. They serve teas here and there's a program of concerts through the summer months were you picnic in the garden before the evenings performance, need to book up in advance for this.
