Eveleigh Avenue, London Road West, Bath, Bath & Northeast Somerset, BA1 7JD
Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the historic centre of Bath, Bailbrook House is set on a hill within 20 acres of rolling west country grounds and has impeccable views over the city and the Avon Valley beyond. Built in the 1790s, the mansion underwent restoration and refurbishment in the summer of 2013 and now offers 13 highly individual guest bedrooms, all furnished in keeping with this grade II listed mansion house’s pretty sandstone style. Adjacent Bailbrook Court has a further 81 bedrooms, all refurbished in modern, stylish fabrics and linens. In the mansion house, idle the time away in one of the three lounges open all day for afternoon tea and refreshments, have a glass of something a bit stronger in the Conservatory Bar or make your way to the restaurant where the chef focuses on producing magical menus using fresh local produce.
Bailbrook House also has a Wedding Venue:
Bailbrook House is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"The first time I ever took a weekend away to do Christmas shopping it was to Bath and that proved such a success that I’ve advocated shopping weekends ever since. The important thing to remember about Georgian Bath is that more than any other British city –even more than Brighton- it was built for pleasure. While the number of balls in the Pump Room and Assembly Rooms has reduced drastically since the eighteenth century, Bath as a place to eat, sleep , drink and shop remains unrivalled.
But where to stay?
Bailbrook House stands just outside the city in 20 acres of grounds on a hill above the London Road. Mr Eveleigh, a wealthy lawyer, began work on his family seat here in the 1790s but the Napoleonic Wars intervened and the mansion was not completed until after Congress of Vienna in 1815. In 1817 Queen Charlotte, wife of George III, visited Bailbrook and here she met local philanthropist Lady Isabella King, commending her work saving street beggars “from the dangers attendant on idleness and poverty” In the twentieth century –less glamorously – the house became a training college for the General Post Office but in 2013 it emerged from scaffolding to become one of only two Grade II listed hotels in Bath.
Here is where you can relax after a hard day’s shopping in the Cloisters Restaurant, located in the basement of the hotel where modern archways have been opened up to provide views of the hotel grounds and over the Christmas city of Bath beyond."
"In April and May this year Bailbrook House created a series of Mad Hatter’s Tea Parties, an eccentric, very English event with tea supplemented by a menu of sweet treats inspired by characters found in Alice’s adventures: a red velvet ladybird cake, a White Rabbit white macaroon, and the Queen of Hearts’ Oreo cookie soldiers. Timed to coincide with the release of Alice through the Looking Glass, the tea also raised money for Business Against Poverty. Bailbrook House stands just outside Bath in 20 acres on a hill above the London Road. Work on building this seat for Mr Eveleigh, a wealthy lawyer, was begun in the 1790s but was interrupted by the Napoleonic Wars. The mansion had a varied career in the nineteenth century. For a while it was the home of Lady Isabella King who devoted herself to saving street beggars “from the dangers attendant on idleness and poverty”. In 1817 Queen Charlotte, wife of George III, visited Bailbrook to commend Lady Isabella on her work, bringing the future king, William IV with her. In the twentieth century the house became a training college for the General Post Office but in 2013 it emerged from scaffolding to become one of only two Grade II listed hotels in Bath."
