Short Weekend Getaways in Bath

Holiday Lodges in Bath

Weekend Getaways in Bath – Bath Mill Lodge Retreat

A great location for short weekend breaks is Bath Mill Lodge Retreat. This 5 star resort is located on the outskirts of Bath offering visitors the chance to enjoy easy access to the city centre of this cultural hotspot without being forced to stay in a noisy and overcrowded city centre hotel. Here you can enjoy the best of both worlds, with our Holiday lodges being surrounded by the tranquil Somerset countryside.

Perfect accommodation for short stays is our Norland Lodge which has kitchenette facilities and a range of entertainment luxuries in beautifully decorated and equipped surroundings. The beds are designed for comfort, while the bathroom facilities will be the envy of the majority staying right in the centre of the city.

Bath has plenty to offer holiday makers, with its world famous Roman Baths and the fascinating Jane Austen Centre. It is also a popular shopping destination as well as being a hot spot for fancy restaurants. Bath Mill has even jumped on the bandwagon here, opening The Brook Bar & Bistro which is quickly establishing a reputation as one of the finest eateries in the region. Guests staying at Bath Mill will have this restaurant right on their doorstep.

Romantic Weekend Getaways – Woodside Bay Lodge Retreat

Looking for somewhere romantic for your weekend away from it all? Then why not consider Beach Cove Coastal Retreat in Ilfracombe Devon. This 5 star destination is establishing itself as the romance capital of the UK thanks to its stunning coastal scenery and intimate beach hut accommodation, many of which are available with their own private hot tub facilities. There are no ordinary beach huts, being equipped with everything you could need for self catering with full kitchen facilities in the spacious open plan living area.

Another great quirky option for anyone on the lookout for weekend getaways for couples is our Treehouse accommodation at Woodside Bay Lodge Retreat on the Isle of Wight. Again, this is far from being your traditional treehouse with it being equipped with a modern kitchen as well as its own log burner fire; a romantic area to cuddle up and take advantage of the high-tech curved flat screen TV. Guests staying in the treehouse are also provided with private hot tub facilities so they can sit out amongst the bubbles and soak up the woodland surroundings.

Weekend Family Breaks

Family Breaks – Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park

Book a weekend that the whole family will enjoy at Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park which runs alongside the beach, enabling you to enjoy a great escape at a traditional British seaside destination. However, there is nothing traditional about our holiday park which has been rated as being up to a 5 star standard by Visit Wales.

Facilities include a tropically heated swimming pool as well as a sauna and steam room if you want something a little more relaxing. The kids are also sure to have hours of fun with the activities put on by Charlie Bear and his rangers, with guests of all ages able to take advantage of the Go Active schedule where activities such as fencing, archery and even body zorbing are available.

Although our lodges and static caravans are designed for self catering, you can still take advantage of the various food options available on park if you can’t be bothered with the cooking. One option is the on-site restaurant which serves something for all tastes, or alternatively you could keep the traditional British seaside feeling going by taking advantage of one of the finest fish and chip shops in Talacre. Family meals and snacks are also available in the dining area outside the clubhouse whenever the weather is accommodating.

One option is Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa in Somerset just a stones throw from the iconic wonder that is Cheddar Gorge. 5 star holiday lodges and facilities will be available to you here throughout the duration of your stay, with guests also able to take advantage of the on-site Eden Spa where we have a partnership with Armotherapy Associates giving us access to their class leading oils and treatments which are administered by our trained professionals. Group and individual bookings are available, but we do recommend booking ahead of time in order to avoid disappointment. Those utilising the Spa will then be able to chill out in the sauna and steam rooms, or alternatively return to the hot tub facilities which are available with many of the stunning on-site lodges.

You will find a very similar offering available through us in Cornwall at Serenity Spa in Piran Meadows Resort & Spa and also in Devon at the brand new Hawkchurch Resort & Spa which features the Ezina Spa. All have class leading treatments in tranquil surroundings.
