We recently had the pleasure of staying at Freeman on Ford for our 10 year wedding anniversary and I could not think of a better way to spend such a milestone. From initial enquiry to checkout nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Heidi and Jim. Our stay was so pleasurable; intimate but not intrusive, perfect in every way....

My husband and I stayed there only for three days, just before the New Year's Eve, and feel rejuvenated and spoiled. Heidi and Jim are wonderful hosts and we will, definitely, be looking...

My partner and I stayed at Freeman on Ford for three nights last week, this being our second visit. Heidi and Jim are the perfect hosts with tasty, fresh and perfectly cooked breakfasts. Also, their delectable afternoon teas overlooking the pool go above and beyond what one might expect, but is a testament to the professional and friendly way Heidi...

We had a beautiful weekend away at Freeman on Ford B&B in Beechworth. Heidi and Jim made us feel so welcome. It's in a perfect location, right in the middle of town, which makes it an ideal spot to explore Beechworth from. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it. Thanks for a lovely stay!

There should be a sixth category in Trip advisor - "SUPERB" - because The Freeman on Ford B&B deserves better than plain old Excellent.

“The room was unbelievable. Freeman on Ford is the most divine luxurious 5 star B & B. No detail has been overlooked. The absolute highlight are it's wonderful owners Jim & Heidi and the exquisite chef Megan. I cannot recommend the place more highly.
