Cottages near Bath
A Georgian masterpiece, straight from a Jane Austen novel
The utterly beautiful city of Bath has been attracting visitors since the Roman times. The mellow, golden Georgian architecture. The graceful curve of the distinctive Royal Crescent and ancient Roman Baths ensure visitors still flock to this gorgeous city today. Lying on the edge of the Cotswolds, Bath is easily accessible and a delight to explore.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a city where art galleries and independent boutiques sit packed into narrow streets and squeezed in between tiny tearooms and atmospheric Bath Stone pubs. It’s also where you can submerge yourself in the natural hot spring waters of the Thermae Bath Spa. The only natural hot spring in the country that you can bathe in. The original Roman Baths are also still in situ. Whilst you can no longer enjoy a dip here, they are an incredible and atmospheric testament to the past. Bath is a city of hidden gems. Of wonderful museums, cobblestone streets and street performers. Fabulous festivals and a Christmas market, that can’t fail to instil the festive spirit into even the most Grinch-like of characters.
Magnificent medieval Bath Abbey is an extraordinary building of soaring columns and stained glass, with a rich history of saints and sinners dating back more than 1200 years. It presides over a city that is very traditional in its architecture but offers a wealth of modern attractions. World-class eating places, theatre and contemporary culture sit alongside its historical past. Bath is forever synonymous with Jane Austin. For dedicated fans, there is a 10-day festival in September along with guided tours and suitably elegant tea rooms.
