We have stayed here several times and joy oh joy - it is such a luxurious intimate place where we are always made to feel at home, the food is exemplary ( we have many medical dietary restrictions between my hubby and me, which most places don't get) - but Freeman of Ford - they do! If you have medical...

There should be a sixth category in Trip advisor - "SUPERB" - because The Freeman on Ford B&B deserves better than plain old Excellent. From the moment we got here to the final fabulous breakfast, we've thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The room was perfect, great bed, great facilities and super clean. Afternoon tea was served to us outside overlooking the amazing...

I've stayed at Freeman on Ford many times and each time I have never been disappointed, in fact it simply gets better. Heidi, Jim and the staff are very friendly and hospitable making each stay warming with a family atmosphere. They even took time during one stay to take me out and show me the local haunt for some kangaroos....

My wife and I recently returned to Freeman on Ford after a two year hiatus and were so pleased to see that very little had changed.

A beautifully restored building. Lovely to see people dedicated to the restoration of old buildings in Australia and then opening their doors to share with others. Thanks Heidi and Jim. Recommended B&B.
