“Superb Property.”
Reviewed May 1, 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.

“Ideal location for a relaxing break.”
Reviewed March 1, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Ivythorpe Coach House was in the perfect location for a relaxing three day break to Bath and the surrounding area. The Inn in Freshford is welcoming and friendly and just a stroll down the lane. The village shop is well stocked and the station to Bath couldn't be more convenient. Just leave the car at the Coach House and take the 10 minute train journey into the centre of the city. Selina welcomed us with a wonderful hamper and the Coach House was well furnished and very comfortable with relaxing views of the countryside. Such a pretty village to visit and a relaxing place to stay. Thank you.

“Five Stars Doesn't do it Justice!”

This was our Christmas retreat away from it all in an idyllic setting. It really succeeded on every front. Firstly the village itself, and the location of the Coach House within it, could not be more beautifully picturesque.It genuinely offers the very best of an English traditional village environment - no commercialised artificial packaging here - totally authentic. To open the bedroom window and look out onto a panorama of St Peter's Church, sheep in the field opposite, and the misty valley beyond, just lifts the spirits instantly. The Coach House Itself has been renovated to an exceptional standard. High quality runs through everything from the en suites to the underfloor heating. It all respects and reflects the origins of the building as a sturdy functional working space. Selina's hospitality including the welcome hamper brings everything together as a completely wonderful experience. We loved it!!
ps and the trains get you into Bath in 11 minutes.
