Friary Coach House (AA 5 star rated) is set in 11 acres of Friary, the site of a former monastery, with spectacular views over the River Frome and surrounded by glorious Friary Wood. The historic Worth Heritage City of Bath is just 5 miles away and the delightful market towns of Bradford-on-Avon, Frome and Wells Cathedral City are all nearby.

This small estate has several rare breeds, including fairy Shetland ponies. The angling on this stretch of the River Frome is excellent and there is a licence for 4 rods available to guests of Friary Coach House.

This luxuriously-appointed detached coach house offers a modern design in a traditional setting. An extensive double bedroom suite on the first floor features a balcony with views over the landscaped gardens, cascading streams and pastures. There is a sitting area with a sofa bed for children, if required.

The open-plan ground floor living room and oak-floored kitchen is fully equipped with satellite television, all culinary and laundry requirements including a modern fully fitted kitchen with washing machine/drier and dishwasher, dining facilities for 6, sofas, storage, heating throughout and a large power-shower room. This is a single bed on this floor.

The picturesque village of Freshford, a 10 minute walk along the river bank, has a village store/ post office and regular bus and train services to Bath (7mins) and London (1hr 45mins). It has an award-winning pub with its own brewery (The Inn at Freshford), The Galleries shop/cafe and an exclusive beauty spa/restaurant at Homewood Park which is adjacent to Friary Wood.

Iford Manor, with its famous Peto Gardens and Arts Festival, is a similar distance on foot and Farleigh Hungerford Castle is just beyond. Other walks nearby follow ancient canals (the Kennet & Avon and Somerset Coal Canal), disused railway tracks (including the famous Camerton line featured in the film 'The Titfield Thunderbolt') and Roman roads (including the Fosse Way and Wansdyke)...or simply explore the abundant wildlife of water meadows and woodland.

Friary Coach House has the option of self-catering (we stock your fridge with basics for your arrival), or fully serviced daily with a cooked breakfast if preferred.
