“Superb Freshford and Bath at your doorstep”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Great little property in a beautiful situation with the bonus of a carparking spot. We enjoyed the views from the bedroom and the touches like the soaps and the comfortable beds. Interesting village shop and welcome food and wine pack. A more detailed list of things to do/places to eat and when, would have been a great addition, especially when we arrived on Sunday afternoon. As we were travelling with a toddler we relied quite heavily on the kitchen facilities and felt the cutlery, utensils etc provided were not up to the general level of finish of the house. We were restricted by not having internet or netflix at Ivythorpe as advertised, in a one off technical failure which affected some of the village and lasted for our entire stay and left us feeling that we weren`t able to make the most of our considerable trip, a dissapointing note for us in an overall very cosy and lovely place to stay.

“Quintessential English village without the tourists”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were delighted with our stay in idyllic Freshford and in particular Ivythorpe Coach House which was all we could have asked for - tasteful/ uncluttered/ bucolic views/ "Cowshed" toiletries a big hit/ privacy but helpful advise if requested. Train to Bath so much easier than tackling parking but we ended up preferring the charm of near-by Bradford-on-Avon if we wanted to venture further than Freshford charming village and rural walks.

“Superb Property.”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We (4 adult family members) recently spent 4 nights at this fabulous Coach House. The property is beautifully appointed with high quality furniture & accessories. The beds are the most comfortable we've had in our travels through Europe!
We cooked most nights & found everything we required in the very well equipped kitchen.
The position of the Coach House is stunning with views from every window.
Selina & Bill are the perfect hosts - welcoming, available when assistance is required & absent when not.
The thoughtful inclusion of a hamper full with local produce was a treat after a long day driving.
Freshford Village is absolutely charming & is only 10 minutes from Bath by train. We highly recommend a visit to the village shop & the Freshford Inn.
