Dropping off rental car in Bath on a Sunday

It seems that all rental car company offices are closed on Sundays. What is the process if we want to drop off our rental car in Bath on a Sunday? Do we have to keep it until Monday morning, or can we drop it at a closed office and return the keys somewhere?

There is no way I would drop off a rental car at a closed office. You need to have it checked over by the staff. If any damage was caused to the car after you dropped it off, you would be liable for the cost. Where are you travelling from/to before and after Bath?

From Cotswolds before, going on to Oxford after. May solve problem by staying another day in Cotswolds.

Top idea Diz! We thought we might stay in Bourton on the Water, but if we're going to stay for 4-5 days (originally 3 nights Cotswolds, 2 nights Oxford, 2 nights Bath) we might rent a cottage (which I suppose we could still do in BOTW).

I think Diz has the right idea. You've obviously done your homework and realised that a car would be a liability in Bath and Oxford, hence wanting to drop it off as soon as you get to Bath. But Oxford is an easy day trip from the Cotswolds.
