Property of the month: Grove Lodge

Grove Lodge is a B&B located in a Georgian Villa built in 1788 located in Lambridge, a few steps from the river and the famous Kennet and Avon Canal.

“Where else, if not in Bath, can you have the beautiful English countryside on your doorstep. Along with the most elegant Georgian architecture, a busy calendar of cultural events, an exciting shopping experience. Plus a wide range of eateries to satisfy every taste and pocket?” These are the words of Mary and Giovanni Baiano, the owners of Grove Lodge.

The pair chose to come and love in Bath in 2006. A new city for the two of them, and bought their first B&B, before settling at Grove Lodge three years ago.


About Grove Lodge

At Grove Lodge, which is also their home, they have created three stunning, elegant, comfortable and quirky suites. The Georgian Suite, the Roman Suite and the Chinese Suite, each decorated in a style that reflects their names with flamboyant colours, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Plus guests can relax in their own private drawing-room, where breakfast is served at the time of their choosing.

As if that wasn’t enough, breakfast itself is a special occasion, it is served on silver trays. With silver from Sheffield, fine bone china from Wedgewood and linin from Ireland.



It isn’t just Mary and Giovanni who are local, all the food they serve is too. Every week you’ll find them at the Farmer’s Market at Green Park Station where they source all their eggs, bacon, sausage, butter, cheese and honey.

“A surprise for us when we visited the house for the first time, and for all our guests, are the amazing far-reaching views from the front of the house. Towards the river valley and the hills beyond and from the back. The colourful Georgian houses with Solsbury Hill beyond, made famous by Peter Gabriel’s song of the same name.” They said.




Guests staying at Grove Lodge are lucky enough to have a good choice of restaurants within a few minute’s walk. The unusual Nourish, plant-based restaurant, serving delicious and imaginative dishes. The historic King William pub which serves modern English cuisine on traditional white table cloths. Plus the buzzy Rose and Crown in Larkhall, which serves more traditional pub food.

Having lived in the city for a number of years now, Mary and Giovanni are knowledgeable about the city and the best places for visitors to explore. Some of their favourite places to spend the day is eating treats at Larkhall Village and buying books at Toppings. Also having picnics in Parade Gardens and stopping at Swoon for the best gelato in England!



A personalised service

When asked what was unique and distinctive about their business, the pair said: “We welcome our guests in our own home, but at the same time, we offer the most discreet and professional personalised service, with the local knowledge that comes from loving and living in Bath. We’ve lived in several different countries and have worked with people from all over the world. So we understand and anticipate our guest’s needs. We love beautiful things, art, music, literature, architecture. We’ve transferred this love for beauty into our house and in how we present things to our guests, with our attention to detail.”
