History of The Wilderness;
Set in large private gardens "The Wilderness" dates from 1640 and was originally a pair of farm cottages believed to belong to the estate of Heywood House nearby. The house features original oak beams and the ceilings are low in many places but this all just adds to the charm ! The original cottages have been carefully extended over the years to provide very spacious and varied accommodation. There are 2 double bedrooms, and 6 twins (some convert to doubles) including a large family room having 2 single beds with guest beds under.
There is ample private parking in the grounds.

Hen Parties at The Wilderness
Hen parties have become more and more popular at the Wilderness, especially since we now offer a range of extra services including beauty therapy, massage, in-house catering, outdoor pusuits and a minibus service for that all important night out in Bath!
The cottage itself provides the cosy ambience perfect for old friends to get together and chat over a glass or two. All our hen parties have loved the Place and many of our brides' guests have come back for their own hen party!
