THE LOCATION

Set back from the bustling A36, the hotel is shielded from the road by trees, although you can still hear the traffic noise. Behind the property are open fields, with delightful views across the Avon Valley. Just a mile away is the picturesque village of Freshford, a lovely starting point for scenic riverside walks.

You're six miles south of Bath, about a 15-minute drive, depending on traffic.

By car: the hotel is 2 hours 40 mins from London, 2 hours from Birmingham and 1 hour 40 mins from Southampton. There is free parking on-site.

By train: London Paddington to Bath Spa takes 1 hour 20 mins. After that either take a 15-minute taxi to the hotel, or a 20-minute connection to Freshford then a 5-minute taxi. Book trains to Bath Spa.
