Your magical family adventure begins at our beautiful city retreat. This is why we love The Bath Priory. Our family days here are spent enjoying picnics on the lawn and playing garden games. Your family becomes our family – everyone is welcome.
Our passion for the simple things in life inspire us to create special family experiences.
Our beautiful gardens play host to our passionate beliefs in the simple pleasures of family, friends and fun.
The gardens are an integral feature of The Bath Priory, covering four acres, including a kitchen garden, meadow and lawns. Our terrace and gardens entertain outdoor playfulness, family fun days and picnics. Our grounds open up nature hunts with exciting finds and new discoveries and there are walks a plenty in the local area.
Play boules or croquet in the gardens at The Bath Priory. Find our yoga mats and introduce the family to the ‘downward dog’ and the ‘cobra’ in a tranquil spot in our gardens. Our printed 'Yoga Bear' guide gives a helping hand, available from reception.
Our Garden Menu for our V.I.L.P (very important little people) is available all day every day. Children are welcome in the restaurant until 8.00pm, with last orders being placed by 7.00pm.
Our V.I.L.P can have their own special picnic hamper whenever they choose. We do “grown-up” picnic hampers too so the whole family can enjoy the experience together in our beautiful outdoor spaces, in private areas within our hotel or in the comfort of your own room. All we ask is that you pre-order any hampers with a member of our team.
Our comfortable family rooms and suites ensure everyone has a good night’s sleep. Choose from interconnecting spaces, twin beds and living rooms with sofa beds.
Our Family Crescent Suites contain living rooms and separate bedrooms; one with an additional single bed and another with bunk beds for two children.
Bring the dog
Two of our Premier Deluxe Rooms can accommodate dogs. After all, they're part of the family too.
We want your stay to be as relaxing and fun as possible and with that comes less packing. We have much of the essentials here ready for you.
