My husband and i had the pleasure of returning to Freeman on Ford for our 40th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the beautiful upstairs Bronze Victorian Room which was filled with "Old World Charm". On arrival to our room we were surprised with chocolates and sparkling wine from our hosts, Heidi and Jim. We felt very pampered with cooked breakfasts and coffee/tea and cake for afternoon tea. Jim's omelette is the best!!! Loved our chats with Heidi in the dining room abut Beechworth and surrounds. We found so many lovely places to visit, thanks to Heidi. Looking forward to when we can go back again. If you want to be pampered and have a relaxing time away in a beautiful, clean and friendly B&B, Freeman on Ford is the place to go. You will not regret it :)

We stayed here 4 years ago in an upstairs suite, this year we managed to get the Silver Deluxe Suite which we think is the prime room, looking over the pool which i can assure you is well worth a dip, and then indulge in afternoon tea including homemade cake. Heidi and Jim are perfect hosts and justifiably proud of their establishment. Plenty of room in the suite and a large bathroom with a double shower. The bed was very comfortable, even enjoyed a little TV - Youtube, where we appreciated some of Jim's taste in music! Breakfast in the morning is excellent, in particular, the omelet produced by Jim is the best i have had anywhere! Not only are Heidi & Jim great hosts, whoever does housekeeping could certainly give lessons to a lot of hotels around the world - they are in and out without causing any inconvenience at all. All the advice given as booking restaurants or place to see, etc. is spot on. Totally enjoyed our stay and aim to be back.....perhaps Kathy can do some more advertising for you?

Spent seven wonderful days over the Christmas & New Year period to recharge after a difficult year. Heidi & Jim simply cannot do enough for you to make your stay memorable. After our booking (and several other guests) at the local Restaurant was closed for New Year due to COVID, Heidi & Jim put on platters and bubbles for all those guests who were without a function to attend. Had a great night with the other guests and got to know them really well. Breakfast every morning was scrumptious and set us up well for the day. I just hope the day does not come when the original Bed & Breakfast ceases and the only option is Airbnb.....would be a sad day. Thanks Heidi & Jim...........you guys rock. Deb & Col

We had been looking forward to staying at Freeman on Ford since early 2021 but thanks to the pandemic had to cancel and re-book twice before we finally made it. As luck would have it, we got to spend our wedding anniversary weekend in what I can only describe as perfect circumstances. Heidi welcomed us with coffee and a divine chocolate blueberry cheesecake as we settled into the beautiful Crystal suite. The room was spacious and opened out to the garden with a stunning view of the pool. The luxurious marble bathroom had a double shower and a spa, and came with quality products and lovely robes. Breakfast was a sumptuous affair with every request encouraged and catered to, expertly cooked by Jim and served in the dining room for all the assembled guests. It is obvious the house has been lovingly restored with attention to detail and honouring the past, and you can feel it as soon as you walk in. We absolutely loved our stay, and were especially touched by the thoughtful anniversary gift of Jim’s delicious milkmylk chocolates. Thank you so much for a memorable weekend Heidi and Jim!

Freeman on Ford is the most charming B&B with the most amazing hosts, Heidi & Jim. Beautifully appointed spacious room over looking the pool and garden. I cant forget the most glamorous bathroom with a double bath. Heidi attention to detail which gave our stay for 5 days so enjoyable and nothing was a problem. Love all her history of Beechworth. We cant wait to our next stay. Thank you Heidi as l certainly have a very special friend in you.
