Three Abbey Green is a Grade II listed building in the heart of Bath. Everything you could wish to do is accessible right from the front door!

A family business started in 2002, the ethos has been from the beginning to provide the highest standard of accommodation, combined with excellent customer service. Three Abbey Green is a Grade II listed Georgian building, parts of which date back to 1689 and is a four-star Gold Award Bed and Breakfast hidden away in a quiet, cobbled square in the heart of central Bath. Staying here puts you within a stone’s throw of many big tourist attractions, including Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths. Whether you want to shop, eat, drink, read, visit a gallery, grab some culture, be at one with nature or just watch the world go by, staying here puts you in the perfect location to explore the city.

The main house has seven rooms, including two large suites ideal for families or groups. The associated Jane Austen Wing in Four Abbey Green, adjacent to the main house, has three rooms, each with their own character and unique charm.

Three Abbey Green is currently headed up by Nici and Alan, with their son Finlay and dog, Bear. Grandmother (and founder of the business) Sue still works part-time. Nici says: “We think Three Abbey Green is one of the most beautiful buildings in Bath, a city overflowing with Georgian grandeur and astonishing architecture. We never cease to be excited about running our family business in Abbey Green; it is rare to find such a beautiful, almost pedestrian-only square in the heart of a city.”

For Nici, the best bit of living in Bath is that: “Bath is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with plenty of green space. Residents of Bath get the most of being in a city without it being overwhelming. Fancy a coffee or dinner? Want to see a film or a show? Watch some high-class rugby or netball? Need a bit of culture? It is all available on your doorstep!”

Abbey Green is an area of the city that is particularly historic, so the atmosphere is fascinating. The house includes the wooden-framed back wall from the original house that was built on the site in 1689. It is situated within the old walls of the original medieval city where the monks grew vegetables and walked through Abbey Gate to the river.

“We offer a personal and friendly service which puts the guest at the centre of everything. We do not provide cutting-edge technology or the latest design trends, but we do offer to care about every aspect of your stay and ensure that you see the Bath that my family loves.”

Being a local family, Nici, Alan, Sue and the staff at Three Abbey Green are always happy to advise their guests on where to visit when in the city and talk about the less obvious places tourists can go. For them, their perfect day out and about in Bath would start by grabbing a coffee from The Columbian, then take a boat trip to Bathampton. Walk back along the canal to Widcombe, refresh yourself with a tea and cake from The Cakery, then head towards home via Sydney Gardens and Great Pulteney Street. While there, why not pop into Pulteney Bridge Flowers to buy something pretty. Stop for a browse in Waller and Wood followed by lunch in Pickled Greens in Abbey Green. You can then have an after-lunch stroll along the river via Green Park and circle back for a spot of browsing at Mr B’s Emporium. In the evening, head to Corkage for a glass of wine and some dinner before finishing your day at The Little by curling up on the balcony, watching an independent film.

Nici says: “One of our favourite seasons of the year is when the evenings are drawing in and the Abbey starts to practise for the winter and Christmas services. Listening to sweet voices drifting through quiet, cobbled streets in the twilight has a delicious, melancholic vibe which takes you back to childhood and simpler times. Later, when the sun starts to shine and the Planetree begins to bring forth leaves, we also have beautiful dappled light that plays across the square in daylight hours. It pulls lots of different life into our small square and we see families, dog walkers, tourists, students, couples and many other groups making the most of the shade offered by our huge tree, which is not as old as it looks!”
