Consider a stylish city escape in Somerset

Escape the everyday this spring with a contemporary getaway to the beautiful city of Bath. There is no argument that the UNESCO World Heritage City is steeped in history and culture, but with restrictions easing over the coming months, there will be plenty of choice when it comes to accommodation, attractions and places to eat. Bath Self Catering have a host of diverse properties dotted around the city, with friendly hosts waiting to welcome you for a luxury stay in their humble abode. See ideas for a must-see itinerary:


Take a self-guided walking tour, or hop on-board Bath’s Sightseeing Bus, to catch glimpse of the city’s most iconic and long-standing landmarks, including attractions such as the Assembly Rooms, Bath Abbey, the Circus, Pulteney Bridge and the Royal Crescent.

Once you’ve taken time to appreciate and marvel at the Georgian architecture, you will likely be ready for a bite to eat. Choose from a smogasboard of quaint tea rooms, hipster coffee houses and delicious delis. However, if you’re after a taste of local history, you’ll be sure to find yourself guided towards Sally Lunn’s Historic Eating House for a tasty Bath Bun.

Spend your afternoon soaking up some history and culture with a visit to one of the city’s many museums. Discover the facts behind Bath’s famous thermal waters at the Roman Baths, experience past times of Georgian Bath at No.1 Royal Crescent or look to the stars at the Herschel Museum of Astronomy. For literary fans a visit to the Jane Austen Centre or the newly opened Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein might be better suited.

After a busy day of sightseeing, prepare yourself for a feast of scrumptious cuisine from the multi-cultural array of restaurants on offer. From gastropubs to Michelin-star menus, savour the delicious delights that await you from around the globe. Alternatively, for those seeking a quintessentially Georgian experience, look to the Pump Room for afternoon tea and bubbles.


Finish off the perfect day with a twilight visit to Thermae Bath Spa and lay down for an aromatic massage or savour the views from the rooftop pool. For those that have missed the chance for live entertainment, there will be opportunity to catch a play, concert or comedy gig from Theatre Royal Bath, Ustinov Studio or Komedia when restrictions allow. Return late to your luxurious self-catering accommodation of choice for a well-earned rest in comfort and reflect on a great staycation.
