A breath of fresh air on the Bath hotel scene, the Roseate Villa is a striking Victorian house on a peaceful road that’s close to the centre yet with its own car park – gold dust in Bath. The Villa overlooks seven-acre Henrietta Park, a wonderfully peaceful place with a circular walk among glorious trees. In the Villa itself, the calm atmosphere continues, with decoration that is light, bright, contemporary with the odd quirk. The 21 rooms have been beautifully decorated, some with a grey and white palate, enlivened by splashes of colour and fun feature walls; others in warm reds and blues. Furnishings are a happy mix of antique and modern and there are huge, supremely comfortable beds. Feather-light duvets and Egyptian cotton bedlinen are hidden delights. A glass of complementary Buck’s Fizz or a smoothie comes with breakfast, always cooked to order. After a day in Bath – shopping, hitting the spa, or just soaking up its beauty, return to the tranquility of the Villa for a quintessential afternoon tea. Perfect.

The Villa oversees the Henrietta Park, a 7 acre park opened to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria of 1897. The park land was donated by Captain Forrester of 3rd Kings Own Hussars, with the stipulation that it should always remain a green space and never be built on.
