The beauty of self-catering in Bath is that you can move entirely at your own pace. There are no hotel meal times to stick to and you can come and go at your own leisure.
There are a wide range of properties available, so self-catering is a great choice if you’re looking for a more unusual venue. You’ll have the choice of modern penthouse apartments to converted Georgian townhouses, contemporary lodges and rustic cottages. Bath is home to lots of self-catering properties with space available for large groups all the way down to couples. These properties will often have unique histories and will surprise you with their charm. Whatever property you choose, you can be guaranteed to find all the modern facilities you come to expect from top rate city locations and plenty of surprises, all just a short journey from the main attractions and sights.
As the vast majority are independently owned, you are likely to find properties offering special prices and discounts, perfect for late deals and last-minute trips. The owner will give you the best advice and information about the locality, so you can be sure to enjoy the area, just like a resident.
Visitors travelling with small children may find self-catering properties the best option for them. Staying in a house or apartment will give you multiple rooms, perfect for being able to let the children (or you!) have a nap during the day or to make sure you don’t have to readjust for the children’s bedtimes. Self-catering accommodation is also good for those bringing their dogs to the city with them. Some are dog-friendly and with the homely layout, it will be more comfortable for your pet. Some provide facilities for your dog. Please check with the provider to see which ones are pet-friendly and if they do any extras to make their stay just as enjoyable as yours!
If you are visiting the city for a hen or stag do, opting for self-catering will give you the extra space you need on the same site. Each guest will have their own space, which will allow all guests a degree of independence while celebrating together.
Bath is a wonderful city for foodies. You will find fantastic pub food, independent restaurants and cafes plus street food, as well as all the main supermarkets, allowing you to use your facilities to make your own meals. Being surrounded by so many farms and smallholdings, you’ll find that many of Bath’s restaurants, cafes and eateries use local suppliers, guaranteeing a fresh, high-quality meal. With so many places to sample, you will be glad you have the chance to go out and eat every night if you don’t feel like cooking!
By choosing a self-catering property, you will get the run of the place, and can stay out as late as you like to enjoy Bath’s nightlife.
