From Georgian gardens to paddle boarding
If you like me are a fan of gardens then Bath has many to explore. Hedgemead Park is just one of the beautiful informal pleasure gardens in this world-heritage city and No 2 Hedgemead Court is just beside it. Hedgemead Court comfortably sleeps 4 and has been newly renovated with luxury finishes (by Tracey Ball HouseInteriors).
My kids love playing in the children’s play park and quite honestly I just like sitting on the benches looking down into the city and wandering around these wonderful old trees.
The largest park in bath is Royal Victoria Park a 57 acre site, with the Royal Crescent as backdrop, but also within walking distance. ‘Viccy Park’ has plenty of space for outdoor activities such as tennis, bowls, crazy golf duckponds , and is home to a delightful botanical garden. You could spend all day here and I often have. Particularly as I have now discovered the cakes in the pavilion.
What else to do…well you could imagine yourself in the Regency era as you follow in the footsteps of literary icon Jane Austen, or you could try paddle boarding along the River Avon, taking in views such as Pulteney Bridge and Weir (featured in Les Miserables). Whatever tickles your fancy, there is plenty to see and do in Bath’s beautiful city.
