Access Statement for Foxhill Lodge

Introduction

Foxhill Lodge is located in Perrymead, Bath and offers

two guest rooms, each with a private en-suite.

Foxhill Lodge and the guest accommodation are situated along a single track road – which, by car, leads only to the premises – at the end of Perrymead in Bath. It is surrounded by trees, gardens and fields and from the gardens there are wide sweeping views over Bathwick and Solsbury Hill beyond.   A walk into the centre of World Heritage site, Bath, typically takes around 20 minutes from the property and the National Trust’s Prior Park Lanscape Gardens are a 15 minute walk away. A bus into town stops regularly, 500 metres walk away. Bath University is a 5 minute drive away.

The accommodation was renovated in 2015 and converted from out-buildings into purpose-built bed and breakfast accommodation.

Whilst we aim to meet the needs of all our guests there are some original features of the building which might make access difficult for people with limited mobility.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone Sally on 07976 317694 or email us at info@bathbreakfastinbed.co.uk
