Beautifully refurbished in 2015, this 1843 almshouse nestles in a secret corner of the city, only 15 minutes from the M4 and a gentle walk downhill to the centre of Bath. There is plenty of parking, so you can leave the car and walk this historic town at your own pace.

The main bedroom, with king-size bed, looks over gardens towards the church; the second bedroom can be made up as a single, twin- or king-bedded room. The original features have been carefully preserved, but this charming house lives comfortably in the 21st century, including WiFi, flat-screen TV, and DAB radio. Guests can enjoy breakfast or an evening drink in the private courtyard, cook a delicious dinner in the Harvey Jones kitchen, or treat themselves in one of Bath’s many award-winning restaurants.

Luxuriously furnished, this cosy cottage offers everything you need for a very special break, from champagne flutes to Egyptian cotton sheets — even a welcome basket on arrival!

Bath has so much to offer, from the Roman Baths and gorgeous Georgian crescents, to the ultra-modern Thermae Bath Spa, quirky independent shops, museums and cultural festivals, that you may want to plan a longer stay to explore the glorious countryside: just let us know.
