Utterly wonderful hosts at this Grade I-listed house. On one of Bath’s finest Regency terraces, it has been so beautifully restored that the BBC filmed it for Persuasion; Jane Austen Society members often stay. Up several stairs are bedrooms flooded with light, two with views over Sydney Gardens, one with a bathroom in marquina marble, cherrywood and ebony. Have breakfast in the convivial family kitchen, or in the plant-filled conservatory. For the adventurous, Mechthild will serve an Austrian alternative – cold meats and cheeses, fresh rye breads and homemade cakes. Herrlich!
