Short city breaks in Bath

Roman Baths – Bath

Bath really is underrated in general, being one of the most culturally rich cities that Britain has to offer. With various sites of historic significance, museums, water features, scenic walking areas and not to mention an impressive shopping district made up of well-known brands and quirky local stores.

It is of course most famous for its beautiful Roman Baths; the spring for which was first utilised in 836 BC by the Celts, and was used to worship the goddess Sulis. The site continued to be used after the Roman invasion, with the initial temple estimated to have been constructed between 60 and 70 AD. The site has been heavily redeveloped since, with the on-site museum providing a far more in-depth breakdown of the history of the Roman Baths, for those who have an interest.

Another highly recommended museum is the Jane Austen Centre, a permanent exhibition, which is dedicated to the life and works of the famous author. You can also pay a visit to the stunning Bath Abbey which was founded in the 7th Century or you may like to take a gentle stroll in the city centre park from where you can admire Pultney Bridge and the river which runs past the park itself.

There are plenty of eateries to sample in the city, with various tastes and requirements catered for by an eclectic range of restaurants. One of the most highly rated restaurants in the area is our very own Brook Bar & Bistro, which is located on Bath Mill Lodge Retreat itself. Our Head Chef and their dedicated team, offer a range of high quality traditional British Classics & exotic cuisine from further afield.

Our 5 star holiday resort also features a complete gymnasium to cater for varying training needs. The holiday lodges themselves are also second to none, with varying sizes available depending on your requirements. We have one to four bedroom options available, all of which are completed by modern interior designs and technological luxuries such as flat screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access.

Kilnwick Percy Resort

Short city breaks in York

Kilnwick Percy Resort – Yorkshire

Our KP Resort offers an exciting York City Break whilst staying in the beautiful surrounds of the Yorkshire Wolds in luxurious accommodation with high quality facilities.
York is the perfect location for those who love arts, culture and history and are looking for a city break. There are plenty of historical monuments and buildings to visit such as the York Minister, one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals which has plenty of history to explore. There are an abundance of museums and one attraction which is a must see is the York Dungeons which take you on a tour of the city’s darkest history.

The city also has some beautiful parks and castle grounds which you can take a romantic stroll through or take the whole family to see the sites. Breezy Knees Gardens and Castle Howard Grounds and Gardens at Castle Howard are two popular choices.

If the weather isn’t looking great then why not head to the theatre and see one of the live shows on offer at the York Theatre Royal, York Barbican or the Grand Opera House York. There are also plenty of play centres to keep the children entertained.

For those looking for somewhere good to eat during their stay the city has a wide range of bar and restaurants to try whatever your fancy. If you’d rather stay on the KP Resort to eat the Glasshouse Restaurant serves up a tasty menu. Our other on-site facilities such as the Nordic Spa and 18 hole golf course which has been used for championship games can be used by all guests staying with us in either our cosy log cabin style lodges or our luxury hotel room accommodation.
