The Caretaker and Housekeeper live in Friary Cottage on the estate and are available 24/7.

Location description from owner

The England region

Friary is on the outskirts of Bath, within the Cotswold Conservation Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in a peaceful valley between the villages of Freshford and Hinton Charterhouse (in which parish it lies).

The village railway station serves Bath in under 10 minutes and the World Heritage City of Bath is only 15 minutes, on average, by car.

Freshford

The ancient village of Freshford (which largely lies within a Conservation Zone) has a well-stocked village shop and cafe with a modern Italian menu and organic supplies on sale, as well as fresh local produce.

The village is a pleasant walk from Friary alongside the River Frome. Longer walks, but mainly on the flat, lead to Farleigh Hungerford Castle, Iford Manor and Avoncliffe Halt Station and the famous Cross Guns Pub in the adjacent River Avon valley.

Longleat is 8 miles to the south.

The historic weaving town of Bradford on Avon is nearby and can also be reached by railway.

To the south lies Frome, better known now for its arts and music scene than its industrial heritage of milling, weaving, brewing and engineering.

Interaction with guest

The Caretaker lives on site as does the Housekeeper, in case you require anything during your stay. There are rare breed animals on site, which guests are welcome to approach, but be careful not to feed or touch without the caretaker being present - he will be happy to show them to you. There is a hot tub available from early morning to early evening and a BBQ and fire pit for which the wood is supplied. In season, there is excellent coarse fishing on the private river bank. Please ask the Caretaker for a list of local walks and pubs or historical information on the site of Friary which is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Tranquillity and Darkness policy of the Cotswold Conservation Board also applies.
