Frequently touted as one of the most picturesque towns in Europe, Bath has been a top tourist attraction in the UK for hundreds of years. Famed for its magnificent Georgian architecture, renowned landmarks and excellent restaurants and bars, it’s easy to see why the whole city was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1987. It’s also home to many bed and breakfasts brimming with historical charm. Here is our pick of the best.

Beech Cottage B&B

Set among the beautiful Somerset countryside and just a short 10-minute drive from Bath city centre, Beech Cottage offers the best of both town and country on a weekend getaway, with a fitting rustic aesthetic. This B&B is a great choice if you like to be independent on your holiday, as each room has a kettle, a microwave, kitchenware and a dishwasher to make small meals and snacks. If you fancy exploring the city, Jeff, the owner of the cottage and former mayor of Bath, is a fountain of local knowledge and can give you some top tips of places to visit.

Found in a charming Victorian townhouse, Brindleys Boutique Bed and Breakfast offers a bespoke experience, with only six perfectly crafted rooms available to rent; you’ll be well looked after during your stay by the welcoming staff. Every room features a slice of luxury, complete with a comfy bed, a goose-down duvet and pillows, high-quality linen, large fluffy towels, a power shower and Caroline Henry of Bath toiletries. The real showstopper here, however, is the incredible breakfast, which includes locally sourced meat and eggs from nearby farms. Within walking distance of the heart of Bath, Brindleys Boutique is a great option if you want to make the most of your time in the city.

A striking guest house on a quiet residential street on the outskirts of the bustling city centre, Grays Boutique Bed and Breakfast offers a traditional experience, giving its guests a relaxing space to rest. Its rooms are set in a 140-year-old Victorian villa and retain many of the building’s original quirks and features, but most spectacular is its picturesque view of the historic city. Breakfast is served in an airy dining room, and the full vegetarian plate, with herby vegetable sausages, halloumi, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes and a potato scone, will even tempt committed meat-eaters.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

High Beeches B&B

Bed and Breakfast

If you are hoping to visit the world-famous Stonehenge during your visit to Bath, High Beeches B&B is one of the best lodgings to book, as it’s only steps away from the popular tourist destination. With only three guest rooms available to rent, it offers an intimate experience in a beautiful stately home. What the lodgings lack in decor, it more than makes up for in location. Here, you’ll find yourself bang in the middle of some of Somerset’s most beautiful countryside while also being close to Bath’s best attractions, including the Roman Baths and the University of Bath.
