Before you begin making memories in the city, get your family break in Bath off to the best start possible by checking in at one of these top places to stay with kids.

Remember to make your booking direct for lower prices and extra perks included free of charge, like breakfast and parking. Don't forget to check our accommodation offers too. 

Apex City of Bath Hotel

Apex City of Bath Hotel is in a handy central location, within walking distance of many of Bath’s major sights, including the famous Thermae Bath Spa. You don’t even need to leave the hotel to enjoy a dip though, thanks to the heated indoor pool.

Family rooms feature one king size bed and two singles and are finished with little home comforts to make your stay an enjoyable one. Cartoons on the 49-inch TV will keep the kids entertained, freeing you up for a soak in the deep bath. You’ll find Ollie, the resident Apex duck, in the bathroom too, who little ones can take home with them.

Homewood

Enjoy a stay at an eclectic, Georgian country house hotel with views across the Avon Valley. Homewood is as family friendly as it is luxurious, perfect for a stylish break with your brood. Family bedrooms come with cots or rollaway beds on request, with several interconnecting rooms on offer too.

The outdoor heated swimming pool is open all year and while the kids are splashing about out there, you might be tempted by some pampering inside the spa. Chromecasts and a Nintendo Switch are also on hand for downtime at the hotel.

Special offer: Kids under 12 stay free at Homewood during every school holiday with breakfast and dinner included to boot.

Lucknam Park

If embracing the great outdoors is how you love to spend a family break, look no further than Lucknam Park. This Palladian mansion is surrounded by swathes of idyllic parkland, where you and the kids can have a go at everything from cycling and croquet to falconry and archery. The Equestrian Centre caters for complete beginners, both adults and children, as well as experienced riders. 

Quality time in the fresh air can continue in the extensive new outdoor play area, while indoors The Hideaway has activity rooms for things like games, arts and crafts, and story time. After making the most of all those activities, you’ll no doubt sleep soundly, either in one of the hotel bedrooms (interconnecting or adjoining rooms are available) or in your own country cottage.

No.15 by GuestHouse, Bath

The elegantly decorated No.15 by GuestHouse is one of Bath’s luxurious boutique hotels, which goes the extra mile to make sure little ones have a great time too. Mini tipis in the bedrooms make magical story-reading hideaways (bedtime books are provided!), there are pantries full of sweet treats, and instant cameras for them to snap away with around the city. Take a night off and let Norland Nannies – available to hire through the hotel – babysit for part of your visit.  

Special offer: During the 2022 summer holidays, kids can stay and eat free at No.15 by GuestHouse. Food includes breakfast, a children’s afternoon tea and lunch and dinner from the kids menu.
