Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Comfortable cottage for 2 (+ children) in a honeypot village close to Bath, with good rail and road connections. Excellent inn 100m away and superb village shop. Best to park in the (very close) inn car park as on road parking close to the cottage is problematic. April 2012.
  2. Fantastic location, ideal for getting into Bath and lovely rural setting. March 2012.
  3. This cottage is quite basic but is ideal for dog walkers as pubs are very nice and let the dogs in, it has no tv which is ok if you dont mind that, also the log burner was quite difficult to light but was lovely when we got it going. March 2012.
  4. We booked a weekend at Ford Cottage for our anniversary and it couldn’t have been more perfect! The cottage is very cute and just what we’d hoped for. The main points we liked about the cottage was the wood burner, the quirky layout and location. Oh and the price was very reasonable! If you stay at Ford Cottage you have to visit the local pub (The Inn at Freshford), the people, locals and staff, were all so friendly. The food was lovely and they have a great drinks selection. As a village, we’d expected to pay a little more when eating / drinking out but the prices were very reasonable. You must also do the Two Valleys Walk - our dog loved it as much as we did! It is a 3.5 round trip through fields and woods which incorporates another pub, Cross Guns. This pubs is in a lovely setting next to the canal and we were very impressed with the quality and price of the food and drinks. Jan 2012.
  5. Fabulous little cottage. Perfect for non-drivers with the station ten minutes away and hourly trains to Bath or Bristol. Local shop in walking distance to buy a pint of milk! No TV so take a few good books! Nov 2011.
  6. Lovely little cottage. It is small but quaint. The village pub is just a few doors away and serves excellent food. The train into Bath takes just 10 minutes and the station is located nearby. Very convenient for a countryside retreat, yet quick and easy access to the shops / city centre. Nov 2011.
  7. Very nice little cottage set in beautiful village near Bath. Lovely woodburner, comfy bed, quality linen and towels, warm and cosy. Nov 2011.
  8. Really comfortable and warm cottage. Great walks for dogs and a great local dog friendly pub with good food 50 meters away. Will go back. You can park in pub car park. Oct 2011.
  9. This is a comfortable old cottage with much character. The village is fairly original and the surrounding countryside great for walks. Our dog enjoyed the stay too, as she romped in the surrounding fields and woods. The local pub nearby is very friendly and they were holding a cider festival during our stay. Only shortcoming of the property is that the parking is a bit tight! Overall - a very enjoyable experience. Aug 2011.
