The Cabbages & Roses Loft
Cabbages & Roses’ self catering studio is just 5 miles from the centre of the magnificent world heritage city of Bath Spa.
Wake up to magnificent views of the Bath countryside before venturing out into one of the most beautiful cities in the world where you can…..
Visit the Thermae Bath Spa and wallow in warm (around 33C), natural, thermal waters in the open-air rooftop pool particularly enjoyable on a cold, clear evening and the larger indoor Minerva Bath.
You can also use the steam rooms – new Roman and Georgian-inspired ones, as well as an infrared sauna and ice chamber.
Fully refreshed, sample one of the many restaurants and cafes in the City Centre before embarking on a tour of Georgian Bath on foot.
First, visit The Royal Crescent – Bath’s singularly most impressive piece of architecture – it is in fact a half ellipse and not exactly a crescent.
Take tea at the magnificent Royal Crescent Hotel and then…..
Go to No 1 Royal Crescent to see how a true Georgian lived.
Maintained by the Bath Preservation Trust, it is furnished in period style, and a major restoration project has reunited it with its original service wing.
If you are visiting between the 9th February and 7th May 2018 go to the excellent Holburne Museum where you will find an inspiring and beautiful retrospective of Anthony Fry paintings.
Previously, slightly fusty, the museum now features a striking and – for an architecturally conservative city – a controversial glass and ceramic extension that protrudes from the rear of the grand, neo-classical building into Sydney Gardens.
As well as the Anthony Fry exhibition, you will find some fine, beautifully displayed British 18th- and early 19th-century paintings, an eclectic collection of antique curios accumulated in the 1800s by Bathonian Sir William Holburne, as well as many other fascinating exhibits and a rather good café.
