It is located in the beautiful Georgian village of Freshford which lies at the junction of the Frome and Avon valleys in the southern Cotswolds. Just 5 miles from Bath and 2 miles from the historic town of Bradford on Avon. Freshford has a very good pub (The Inn at Freshford)serving great food and local beer and ciders a few minutes walk from the cottage. .There is also a well stocked village community shop and café. There are some wonderful walks along the Avon and Froome rivers and the Kennet and Avon canal leading to riverside Inns and areas of local interest (Iford Manor). All just 15 minutes from Bath by car but the secret of this location is the 9 minute train journey to Bath from the village station, just a short stroll from the cottage. Services run every 30 mins at peak times and hourly thereafter..More
