Summer is here and glorious it is too – most of the time! It’s the season to soak up the British sunshine, breathe the warm air and make the most of our long summer evenings.
This time of year is all about getting outside as much as possible, from barbecues and al fresco dinners to picnics and sun-downers on the terrace.
Our Bath self catering properties offer several perfect spots to enjoy summer days and nights in this historic city.
We have five Bath holiday homes among our collection that boast lovely gardens and terraces where guests can make the most of the good weather.
So, if you are looking to book a summer holiday in Bath, look no further:
This beautiful Regency holiday home – originally a toll keeper’s house built into the side of Bath’s historic Cleveland Bridge – boasts a magical tiered garden right on the banks of the River Avon. French windows from the kitchen open up onto a terrace with a dining table and chairs ready for guests to eat while overlooking the flowing waters. Relax with a book or cup of tea in the summerhouse or lounge on the lower terrace right on the waters’ edge.
This lovely holiday rental opens onto a south-west facing tiered garden, bordered by Hedgemead Park, which offers leafy tranquillity despite its proximity to the bustle of Bath city centre. The garden is built over three levels, each of which offer sheltered terraces with tables and seating enabling guests to follow the sun throughout the day.
This Grade II listed holiday let has a secluded garden surrounded by the luscious shrubbery of Locksbrook Cemetery. Not overlooked by any neighbours, the garden offers a level of privacy rare in a Bath rental property. Boasting a barbecue and dining table and chairs, it is an ideal spot for summer dining or drinks. For those wanting more space, the historic cemetery is a lovely place to lose yourself among the trees and birdsong.
Located right next to Bath’s most iconic sight, The Royal Crescent, this stunning self-catering apartment has a sheltered roof terrace where guests can sit and admire the Regency architecture that surrounds them. A table and chairs are laid out for al fresco dining with French windows leading straight into the kitchen making it easy to serve up.
Situated opposite Toll Keeper’s House, this self-catering holiday home is also one of the original Regency properties built into the side of Cleveland Bridge overlooking the smooth waters of the River Avon. It’s riverside garden offers a tiled terrace with a table and chairs next to the kitchen with steps that lead down to the middle terrace where there is space to lounge on the grass. More steps lead down to a wooden pontoon on the water, where you can lie back and listen to the water flowing past.
So, with such a beautiful collection of self catering holiday homes in Bath all boasting outdoor space, you’ll be spoilt for choice when trying to decide where to make the most of a summer trip to Bath this year.
