Perfect Georgian Cottage for Girls Get Togethers and Family Celebrations in Bath.

I can only echo the previous reviews. This cottage was fabulous for our joint birthday celebration. Central location so only trotting distance to shopping, restaurants and bars. Beds were super comfy, great to have towels and toiletries - especially facial wipes as I'd forgotten mine....More

About the neighbourhood
Bath is a UNESCO world heritage city, renown for its superb mellow Georgian Stone buildings and historic Roman Baths. The Thermae spa offers rooftop all season outdoor bathing in the natural hot springs which brought the Romans to Bath. Relaxing in the warm water overlooking the rooftops at sunset is a treat never to be forgotten. The Spa can be booked for treatments, swimming in the indoor pool, or complete packages including meals, rooftop bathing and therapies.

Strolling around the town, visiting the famous Royal Crescent, the skyline often filled with hot air balloons, Bath Abbey and the fascinating Roman Bath remains is a delightful way to spend a day or two in the town. There are numerous small fascinati...
