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 (FOR TWO MEDIUM SIZE CARS ONLY) right outside the door. The accommodation consists of a dining/lounge with a glass screen looking into the pleasant stone-walled yard, good size new fitted kitchen, three double bedrooms, one en-suite and a family 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.

"Great accommodation in a wonderfully tranquil setting!"

We spent a lovely weekend at Stable Cottage and The Stables. The houses are furnished to a high standard, have well-equipped kitchens and are in the picturesque village of Freshford. The houses are next door to one another and were perfectly suited to our group of 5 adults and 4 children with a bedroom to spare! Excellent value for money and totally painless booking and arrival procedures. Highly recommended!

So pleased you enjoyed your stay.
