Located in the heart of Georgian Bath, our impressive stone Victorian house has lovely spacious rooms furnished with beautiful antiques, carefully chosen and elegantly assembled.

Originally built in 1867, our Bath gay owned guesthouse is in the heart of town, close to Queen Square and at the edge of Royal Victoria Park. A short stroll up Marlborough Lane leads you to the gates of this lovely park, where Royal Avenue presents a panoramic view of the gracefully imposing Royal Crescent, a fine example of Georgian architecture. Only a few steps further, and you’ll find Baths’ famous Circus and the centre of this historic town, just five minutes on foot from our front door.

The Secret Gay Life of Ancient Bath

Ancient Bath Bath is one of the most ancient cities in the UK – but nothing here is older than the water from its hot springs. It fell as rain around 10,000 years ago and sank 2km into the ground. Here hot rocks heat it to 69C (156F) before it bubbles to the earth’s surface – conveniently at perfect bathing temperature. The city that has grown up around these hot springs is globally famous for its handsome architecture. And it’s been attracting tourists for almost 2,900 years. So we booked a lodge with self-catering holiday specialists Hoseasons and started a weekend of Christmas shopping, historical discovery and pampering. What really happened in a Roman bathhouse? The Romans didn’t invent Ancient Bath. It was discovered in 863BC when the Celtic Prince Bladud was cured from his skin disease after bathing in the waters. By the time the Romans arrived, around 60AD, it was already an ancient British shrine. But the Romans combined those traditions with their own bathing culture. They identified their goddess Minerva with the local deities and built a shrine as well as a bathhouse.
