“Great base to view the sites”
Reviewed 18 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We would like to thank Phil and Naomi for a wonderful stay in your peaceful country cottage within the beautiful village of Fresford. The cottage contained everything we needed and more. Phil even kindly washed our cloths. Perfect location to base ourselves for our family adventures to the local historical sites eg. Bath, Stone Henge, Avebury Stone circles, Farleigh castle, Wales, etc. Caught the train into Bath very handy. Note when getting off at Freshford station you must exit in the first door of the first carriage as its the only door that is opened, for what reason I do not know. We really enjoyed the walks in the woods even though it was a little muddy, if we come again we will bring our gum boots (wellies). Enjoyed the local pub and Ilford. Loved waking up in the morning and looking out over the woods while listening to the birds.

“Very nice self-catering apartment in perfect location”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I booked the apartment for my parents, who stayed in Freshford for three nights while visiting me. It's a very nice self-catering flat in a perfect location, just outside Bath. Very picturesque village with all amenities close by (train station with hourly trains to Bath + pub in the village). The shop, just ten minutes walk away, is great and has everything you need + a small cafe. Perfect location for exploring the countryside around Bath, which we love: Iford Manor is about a mile away and Avoncliff within walking distance up the river Avon. Naomi and Phil were very nice hosts (thanks again for helping me find the shop five minutes before it closed on the evening we arrived!) and the booking process and communication before our visit was very smooth and painless.

“Relaxing place to stay”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This cottage is delightful. Well equiped and very comfortable. My wife and I used it as our base for 5 days shopping/touring and it was great to be able to wind down and recharge our batteries each night. As mentioned by others accessing the driveway by car off a very narrow and steep lane is a little tricky, but we soon mastered the technique even with my fairly large estate car. The setting is stunning with lovely views and we are already planning a return visit.

“Great all round!”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here in November and thought it was brilliant, very quiet spot close to Bath with lots of space and modern appliances. Both of us work in luxury hotels in London and have to admit they have done a superb job with what they offer to their guests and cleanliness. Look forward to coming back again
