WHAT WE LOVE...

The Kennard is one of Bath's finest bed and breakfasts. The property dates from 1794 - it was built as a lodging house for visitors to Bath when the city was in its heyday as a fashionable Georgian resort. Furnishings such as chandeliers and gilt mirrors maintain the elegant Georgian style of the townhouse. The dozen individual bedrooms, which range from attractive singles sharing a bathroom to fairly palatial superior doubles, are traditionally decorated. Breakfasts are nothing short of excellent, and the location, on a quiet residential street five minutes' stroll from the city centre, is hard to beat.

THE DETAILS

THE LOCATION

This B&B is situated on a charming, low-traffic street, very close to the city centre - about as good as it gets in Bath. Just 100 yards away lies the magnificent Great Pulteney Street, Bath's grandest Georgian thoroughfare. Additionally, the nearby Henrietta Park is adorned with magnificent old trees.

Located just a five-minute walk, via the famous Pulteney Bridge, to the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey and about ten minutes on foot to the train station.

By car: around 45 minutes from Bristol, 2 hours 30 minutes from London and 3 hours 30 minutes from Manchester.

By train: there are direct services to Bath Spa from Bristol Temple Meads (11 minutes), Cardiff Central (1 hour 5 minutes) and London Paddington (1 hour 15 minutes). The hotel is around a 10-minute walk from Bath Spa station. Book trains to Bath Spa.
