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 boasts a tiny railway station with hourly trains to Bath, which is a ten-minute journey, as well as numerous other destinations. Regular buses travel the 25-minute road trip to Bath city centre. 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.

The house has its own dedicated parking right outside the door. The accommodation consists of two large reception rooms - one with a glass wall into the pleasant stone-walled yard - two double bedrooms, one bedroom with two single beds and a kitchen and bathroom. It is ideal for families or groups, with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay, and special features such as country walks with two rivers and a canal to enjoy.

Bath

The local town of Bradford-on-Avon (45 minutes walk along the canal tow-path, or a short train ride) offers a snapshot of a stone-built mill town, with lovely architecture and many tourist attractions from a 14th century tithe barn to a Saxon church. The city of Bath has a really huge number of restaurants, museums, activities and shops as well as many festivals and an astonishing wealth of history, all packed into this small quintessentially Georgian World Heritage city. You couldn't find a nicer or more interesting place to spend quality holiday time.

"Hidden gem with great access to Bath"

The cottage is in a wonderful location, a pretty village with excellent access to Bath (only 10 minutes by train, and the station is just a couple of minutes walk away). Despite the station being clos… More

The train station is on a tiny branch line that just serves the local villages. We are luck in Freshford that it has survived. I agree that the Freshford area has so much going on that you can have a good holiday without using the car. We are looking forward to your return.
