About Bath

Visit a city shrouded in history.

Bath City Centre

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bath is rich in heritage and well-known for its role in Roman and Georgian history. Its compact centre makes it ideal for exploring on foot, or you can take a ride on one of the open top buses around the city.

Something for Everyone

One of the highlights is a visit to the Roman Baths Museum which houses the ruins of Sulis Minerva, the Roman temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water. Bath’s hot springs are also used today in the luxury Thermae Bath Spa. Exclusive discounts are available at the spa and at the nearby Combe Grove Manor Country Club for those staying in our accommodation.

Bath is full of stunning examples of Georgian architecture, including the Royal Crescent, the Circus, Pulteney Bridge, the Assembly Rooms and the Grand Pump Room. Bath Abbey, built in1499, is also a dramatic landmark in Bath and an excellent example of Gothic architecture.

The city regularly hosts festivals and other events, from international music to Jane Austen and fashion to comedy, and has a vibrant theatre scene.

Bath is also a shopper’s paradise, with an array of independent boutiques and well known stores located across the compact city centre. After a day of retail therapy, you can indulge yourself at one of Bath’s many eateries – from award winning AA Rosette restaurants and bistros to quaint tearooms and welcoming pubs, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

The Countryside at Tucking Mill

Bath is surrounded by lovely countryside but Tucking Mill is arguably the closes and prettiest. It is the perfect destination for outdoor and wildlife lovers. Wildlife can be spotted along the many walks and cycle paths around Tucking Mill, including the Bath Skyline Walk, a circular walk which takes you from Prior Park, a beautiful 18th century National Trust Garden with a unique Palladian bridge, through beautiful woodlands and meadows to an Iron Age fort and Roman settlements.

Sustrans Route 24, the Colliers Way, passes through Tucking Mill and there are a number of rambling paths from the doorsteps of our cottages.

For those of you who want to spend time near or on the water, bikes and boats can be hired from the Bath and Dundas Canal Company on the Kennet and Avon Canal near Tucking Mill.

The Outdoor Experience

Fly fishing is available from the banks of Midford Brook and we can arrange this for you. Wild swimming is available at nearby Warleigh Weir and at Freshford.

Wellow Trekking is also located in the Midford Valley along the road at Wellow and they offer archery, clay pigeon shooting and riding. The West of England Owlery is now located at Norton St Philip where an extraordinary collection of owls and other birds of prey can be seen and frequently flown.

There are many golf courses nearby where non-members can play including Bath Golf Club, Cumberwell, Kingswood and Lansdowne.
