On this visit to The Bath Priory, Head Gardener Jane Moore will bring her trademark passion, enthusiasm and experience of the hotel’s four-acres of walled gardens, exploring the abundant late summer borders filled with late flowering perennials and autumn - interest shrubs and trees, as every season is a celebration of colour.
Hydrangeas and Cotinus vie for attention with asters and Persicaria, while the kitchen garden is overflowing with produce at harvest time. After perusing the gardens, enjoy access to the historic Bath Priory Hotel, built in 1835 as a private residence until 1969, when the house was bought and converted into a seven bedroom hotel. The following 25 years saw The Bath Priory prosper as a hotel and in September 1994, it was the first hotel purchased by the Brownsword family. Since then, their hotel group has received many awards including AA hotel group of the year in 2017.
