The Kennard, Bath
The Kennard is one of Bath's finest bed and breakfasts. The property dates from 1794 - it was built as a lodging house for visitors to Bath when the city was in its heyday as a fashionable Georgian resort. Furnishings such as chandeliers and gilt mirrors maintain the elegant Georgian style of the townhouse. The dozen individual bedrooms, which range from attractive singles sharing a bathroom to fairly palatial superior doubles, are traditionally decorated. Breakfasts are nothing short of excellent, and the location, on a quiet residential street five minutes' stroll from the city centre, is hard to beat.
The Kennard sits on an elegant, curving Georgian terrace that forms part of Henrietta Street.
Some of Bath's most famous landmarks, such as Pulteney Bridge and Henrietta Park, are within a five-minute walk.
By car: around 45 minutes from Bristol, 2 hours 30 minutes from London and 3 hours 30 minutes from Manchester.
By train: there are direct services to Bath Spa from Bristol Temple Meads (11 minutes), Cardiff Central (1 hour 5 minutes) and London Paddington (1 hour 15 minutes). The hotel is around a 10-minute walk from Bath Spa station. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
The Kennard is perfect for anyone intent on immersing themselves in Bath's Georgian era; the B&B is very popular with Americans. We love the pretty recreation of a Georgian garden, complete with box and topiaried hedges, at the rear of the property.
