Short Weekend Getaways 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.

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.
