“Relaxing retreat”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Visited with a friend for a week away from the norm.... the accommodation was excellent. Very comfortable and very clean. Appreciated the ensuite to both bedrooms. Very quite location with the benefit of a train station just 5 minute walk away. The train to Bath only took less than 10 minutes. It is a ideal place to also visit, Bradford on Avon, Stonehenge, Salisbury and of course Bath.The accommodation itself was lovely and the beds very comfortable. We enjoyed our week in the Ivythorpe coach house - its was a home away from home. Selina and Bill were very hospitable and on hand if we needed anything. Would definitely return to Ivythorpe without hesitation.

“Country village peace and comfort so close to Bath and many other attractions”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Freshford and Ivythorpe Coach House are as Selena described, only better. We relaxed immediately in the quaint, attractive, peaceful, green surroundings and were thrilled with every aspect of our uncluttered yet luxurious accommodation. The cottage decor is soothing and all the amenities are of high quality and ultra-comfortable. Selena's generous and thoughtful welcome pack meant we didn't have to run around finding food essentials until the next day. And when we did, reluctantly, leave the cottage to explore the area, we had all the info we needed to be able to do some delightful country walks and find our way to the excellent local shop and cafe nearby. The proximity of the cottage to the Freshford Station meant that we could easily visit Bath and return to London at the end of our far-too-short stay. We would highly recommend Ivythorpe Coach House and the whole Freshford experience. Our sincere thanks to Selena!

“AMAZING !”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was my third stay in Ivythorpe Coach house.
Selina ( the owner) has such lovely taste and the style inside is simply beautiful : Clean and uncluttered but with a very homely feel. Views are stunning.Village feels very French.
Everything is done to a really high standard and Selina herself is most welcoming and helpful.The welcome hamper is generous and sets your holiday off to a great start.
Having already stayed there twice this year.....I am already planning my next trip!

“A perfect English village self-catering holiday”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Freshford has the atmosphere of a French village particularly the High Street with Ivythorpe Coach House complementing this. Tastefully appointed with up to date facilities immaculately presented with outsatnding views from this elevated position.
Selina is most accommodating and on hand should you require anything.
