To Bath, Britain’s finest Georgian city, and the Roseate Villa, a hidden gem boutique hotel minutes’ walk from the heart of it all: a warm welcome and exclusive CountryClubuk Members’ rates

Bath is Britain’s most perfectly and beautifully preserved Georgian cities. Originally known for its waters, now it is the place to relive the epitomy of the 18th-century good life. Relaxed, refined and prosperous, the city is a gracious host, and a perfect place to be hosted here is our hidden gem, Roseate Villa.

This luxurious boutique hotel is a graceful pair of villas in a quiet corner of the city, only minutes’ walk from the centre. With delicious home-cooked breakfasts and cakes, its park views and its own private car park and gardens, its warm, generous service and welcome for dogs as well as humans, Roseate Villa is a delight, and one to savour, especially at the advantageous CountryClubuk Members’ rates.

Bath’s historical heart is at the Roman Baths, Britain’s finest ancient Roman ruins, and Roseate Villa is just a few minutes’ walk away from this as well as a vast array of iconic Regency architecture, such as the Royal Crescent, the Circus and Pulteney Bridge, the Pump Room and the mediaeval majesty of Bath Abbey. Bath is also a fine centre for exploring farther afield: nearby historic towns and villages such as Lacock and Wells, the Cotswold Hills, the Mendip Hills, the Somerset Levels, the North Wessex Downs, River Severn estuary, Cranborne Chase and heritage sites such as Stonehenge—but the city itself is a treasure-trove of beauty and interest, all in walking distance from Roseate Villa: gazing at the night sky from Thermae Bath Spa’s rooftop pool, visiting exhibitions at the Holburne Museum, strolling along the canal, soaking up the grandeur of Bath Abbey, touring Prior Park, or experiencing high tea in the Pump Room. At walking distance from The Villa, guests can enjoy a cultural feast, packed with captivating architectural marvels, museums and the city’s Roman history.

Roseate Villa encompasses two Victorian houses which themselves have had a characterful legacy. The 21 rooms vary from mid-sized to positively palatial, and are elegant as well as thoroughly contemporary, with individual touches and American-style shutters and blinds. Service is homely and personal, with check-in likely to be organised over a cup of tea in the stylish dining area (there is no lounge as such). You can enjoy a fine selection of teas and homemade cakes in the garden, breakfast exactly the way you like it, and a relaxing nightcap from the Henrietta Bar, named for the historic park which the Villa overlooks.

Henrietta Park is a seven-acre park opened to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria of 1897. The parkland was donated by Captain Forrester of the 3rd Kings Own Hussars, with the stipulation that it should always remain a green space and never be built on. The park is an oasis of tranquillity, with places to sit quietly or take a relaxing stroll around the circular walk among many fine trees and flora, including the purple sycamore, golden elms, caucasian maple and a line of Baumannii horse chestnuts. If you are brining your own dog, this is another attraction of the Roseate Villa’s prime location.

Altogether, the atmosphere is one of tranquility, warm welcomes and genuine service from the award-winning team at the Roseate Villa—not forgetting the Villa’s resident dog, Muttley. It really is a perfect hidden gem in which to explore one of the most historically and culturally rich places in the world.
