Camden – Where to stay in Bath with Family

Moving north again from Walcot, the next suburb of Bath is Camden. This family-friendly area is named after Camden Crescent, a row of elegant homes built in 1788. This is a highly desirable neighborhood of Bath, thanks to the hilltop location with lots of green space and tree-lined streets, mixed with classy cocktail bars and restaurants. All of this is still just a 10-minute walk from the city centre, albeit an uphill walk to get back home after your visit to the Baths. There are plenty of boutique shops in the area, too.

Larkhall – Where to stay in Bath with kids

Farther north from Camden is the residential area called Larkhall. This is a bohemian neighborhood, although very family-friendly, too. St. Saviour’s Road runs through here, with many high street shops, boutiques, bookstores and cafes. The Rondo Theatre is a popular performance venue for “fringe theater” and nearby Alice Park is perfect for active families. Larkhall butts up against the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding National Beauty, yet it is only 20 minutes to Bath city centre by bus, making this the perfect “middle ground” for travelers who want to spend time in nature and also enjoy the attractions of Bath.

Weston – Where to stay in Bath for a village experience

Once an independent village, Weston has merged into Bath but retains a distinct village feel, which is really the best of both worlds. Weston is a 30-minute train ride into Bath city center, so you can easily enjoy the best attractions of Bath while returning home to a quaint English village at night. Weston is super family-friendly, with very quiet streets and parks throughout the village. Upper Weston also backs up to Cotswolds AONB, offering tons of outdoor adventure opportunities for the whole family.
