The Best Location in Bath
A home away from home… perfectly located.
Full of History
The UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath is unique, packed with attractions and things to do. The Roman Baths and Bath Abbey, two of the city’s most famous attractions, are steeped in Georgian and Roman history. Perhaps the city’s most popular attraction, the Thermae Spa, is the ultimate way to unwind and relax. We recommend their Twilight evenings!
Bath is also gorgeous for architecture with locations like Royal Crescent, The Circus and the Assembly Rooms – all impressive, must-visit places. For culture enthusiasts, there’s also the Science Museum, American Museum and the Bath Fashion Museum.
Perfect for Foodies
The West Country is a hot spot for food enthusiasts. Bath caters for an array of tastes from the Nepalese Yak Yeti Yak, Italian Sotto Sotto and vegetarian friendly Acorn to the fine-dining establishments like The Pig, Bath Priory, The Olive Tree and Henry’s – there’s something for everyone here. The Old Smithy Loft and Hedgemead Court are within walking distance of the city’s best restaurants.
& A Tipple
Bath is spoilt for choice when it comes to bars and night life. From the mutli-award winning cocktail bar Sub 13 to the quirky Corkage wine bar, Bath is a treasure trove of watering holes. Whisky lovers will enjoy The Hideout, while The Pulteney Arms is an ideal spot for pub lovers. The best news? You can walk to all of them!
On Your Doorstep
The adventurer in you will be pleased to know there are plenty of walks and cycle routes in Bath, from the Sustrans 24 Two Tunnels shared path to the beautiful Kennet & Avon Canal (running just behind the Old Smithy Loft). Hedgemead Court has Hedgemead Park adjacent to the property with views from the groundfloor balcony over the park, while The Old Smithy Loft sits over the road from the pretty Sydney Gardens.
For holidaymakers who want to explore beyond Bath, our apartments are in an ideal location for day trips to the buzzing city of Bristol, attractions across the south west like Longleat Safari Park, and good access to the M4 to explore the attractions of the Great West Way towards London. The Great West Way heads through Stone Henge, Lacock and Bowood towards the Chilterton Hills and the Royal Ascot.
More locally, we would recommend every Bath visitor does the Skyline walk. It offers beautiful views throughout. There’s also the opportunity to divert at one stage and visit the Prior Park Landscape Gardens, which are stunning.
Bath is the cultural heart of the west country. Home to the popular Jane Austen festival (and countless Jane Austen attractions), Bath also hosts its own eponymous festival featuring an extravaganza of music and literature. Classical music fans will love the Mozart and Bachfest, while foodies must visit Bath in Autumn for the Great Bath Feast. Of course, almost everyone flocks to Bath for the UK’s best Christmas market…
Golfing and the Races
The Old Smithy Loft and Hedgemead Court are perfect holiday rentals for golf or horse-racing fans. The Bath Racecourse is less than ten minutes from both city centre apartments and regularly hosts race days and public events. Golfers have the choice of the traditional Sham Castle or Lansdown full golf courses, or the more casual Approach Golf Course near Victoria Park.
