A beautiful listed building dating back to the 13th century, Homewood Park Hotel & Spa has been renovated with traditional stone and is covered in clambering ivy. Set just 15 minutes outside historic Bath, the hideaway is surrounded by 10 acres of award-winning gardens, park and woodland. The hotel’s spa, which has been recommended by the Good Spa Guide, is tranquilly set in its own building, nestled in the gardens.
While you’re here, don’t miss the chance to try out some of the signature treatments, which include Elemis body therapies. The gourmet British restaurant has been awarded two AA Rosettes and offers imaginative cuisine, presented with aplomb. Add afternoon tea by the roaring log fire to your to-do list too, all the better when you throw a glass of chilled Taittinger champagne into the mix.
How to Get There
We chose this lovely place for a special celebration due to its location and surroundings.
Thought of booking a special celebration lunch.
Arrival was greeted by friendly staff...lovely decor, classic.
We had ordered from the set Menu, as it was the only menu presented.
Food was good..but not wowed.
As it were, we felt quiet rushed by the service, and very basic attendance.
Not what we were expecting from such lovely grounds.
My wife and I spent an evening at Homewood Park for our friend's wedding reception last autumn. The venue was perfect for the occasion with stunning grounds capturing the picturesque view over the valley and a fantastic ambience throughout the Georgian building. The staff were very friendly and, whilst we weren't staying at the hotel, they were always willing to help particularly in the cocktail bar where the bar man was happy to make something special for us.
The food was fantastic and we would love to come back to experience the normal menu for an evening. I would highly recommend Homewood park if you are ever in the Bath area.
The advert to spend a night in a listed building dating back to the 13th century just 15 minutes outside of Bath was what caught my eye and started the whole getaway.
Homewood Park Hotel and Spa is a luxury hotel set on ten acres of parklands with beautiful vistas over the Limpley Stoke Valley. The drive up to the hotel is lovely, very green, lots of trees, lots of coverage even though it was still winter. The house is a joy to behold from the outside and inside offers an abundance of period features. I loved the crackling fires and the creaky wooden floors on the way to our room.
Our room was situated within the main house and according to Secret Escapes we were to have the Deluxe Room. However, when we got there we had been giving the Junior Suite instead. :). There was an enormous bed and it was stunningly comfortable too. The room was stylishly decorated in English country house style and overlooked the well kept gardens. We settled in for a late afternoon nap before heading down to the bar just before dinner.
The cosy bar area with the Chesterfield sofa, Havana Cigar Stand, coffee table full of Taittinger Champagne bottles and a lovely roaring fire welcomes you for a homemade Homewood Signature Cocktail. Steve’s concoction for the night was a cocktail made with Lavender. It’s a beautiful bright blue cocktail. Was pleasant enough but pretty sharp in taste. We were handed a menu to peruse and order before being shown to our seats in the restaurant.
The following morning we returned to the restaurant for breakfast. We were told to help ourselves to the continental selection of cereal and pastries until our hot food arrived. We selected the biggest breakfast which was the Full English. It was ok compared to the dinner.
We had a bit of time to kill before heading back into Bath, so we made our way to the Spa area to investigate whats on offer. The spa is pretty small with an outdoor heated swimming pool and indoor hydrotherapy pool.. We didn’t use the spa facilities.
All in all it was a pleasant night away. The food was good. Service great.
This was booked as a Red Letter Day booking which may have affected what we received.
The room was directly at the top of the stairs from reception.
Beautifully furnished but you could hear every word said by every person in reception, which by definition meant that there was also no privacy in the room.
Some elements were lacking and had to be chased up with house keeping ie robes . This is after all a spa hotel.
The pool area , along with the rest of the grounds were lovely.
Dinner was pleasant with attentive service.
Breakfast however was painful. You could die waiting, and it wasn't worth the wait.
Sad, so much potential but some areas need attention.
I was here for my sister's wedding. We have a lovely breakfast in the room while getting ready in the morning and grounds are beautiful. I enjoyed some of the lovely little spaces there are around the hotel. I just wish I had had time to visit the spa! Sara and Adams wedding - 20/10/17
