Bath based, country walks
As featured in National Geographic Traveller, The Independent and Olive Magazine! – “Stupendous Bath based country walks!”
When Prince Bladud bathed in the natural hot springs in 863BC and was cured of leprosy he founded the city of Bath in gratitude.
Since then it has attracted visitors over the centuries to bathe in the healing waters. The Romans adopted the city in AD43 developing Sulis – a sanctuary of rest and relaxation that would evolve with elaborate temples and baths. Today Bath is a city rich in Georgian architecture, in the beautiful pale golden Bath stone. A country city that is in step with the pretty green valleys and landscapes that surround it. Our trails will help you explore places most visitors here simply miss.
This is a Staying in One Place style walking holiday up to 4 nights. Relax and sleep at a family owned Georgian Bath hotel. It makes the perfect base, central yet in a quiet residential Georgian street with its own garden bar and courtyard.
Explore the surrounding countryside and villages as well as options to spend a day or two within the city itself. You can expect to see the River Avon, Kennet and Avon canal, villages, beautiful countryside, Roman baths and enjoy the local produce including Bath buns, cheeses and even our own gin! Extend your trip with neighbouring Cotswolds or Wiltshire if you wish.
