“We could not have achieved these awards without the fantastic support of our staff,” said Nici. “We couldn’t be more proud of their commitment to helping us provide beautifully clean accommodation and truly scrumptious breakfasts.”
Last time a silver – this time, who knows?

Bath is buzzing at the moment – and it’s not just the bees. Here at Three Abbey Green we are so enthusiastic about all the unusual events on offer over the summer that we have put together a factsheet ‘Twelve top tips for exploring Bath on foot’. We don’t want you to miss any opportunity to see Bath from a different angle and if you stay with us, you can do them all by just using your feet. No cars or public transport required. So, if you want to see the Roman Baths by candlelight whilst drinking champagne, blow your own Bath glass bauble or try Stand Up Paddleboarding, read on. Actually, we got a bit over-excited and have given you thirteen things to do while you visit Bath.
One of the suggestions is to follow the Minerva Owls’ sculpture trail, so it was thrilling to find one of the 80 Owls has joined us in Abbey Green. You only have another 79 to find!
We are proud beyond measure that two of our part-time staff, Bath University students Pip and Beth, have both finished their studies here with a 2:1 in Environmental Science. Well done to both of you.
And finally, even the weather is conspiring to make Bath amazing. Come and join us!
At last, some sunshine! The buildings in Bath built in Georgian stone are looking amazing –

It’s been a tough few months for independent businesses in Bath, with the opening of
several new hotels threatening to overwhelm the small independent accommodation

The local traders are getting in on the action too. May 20th marks the start of a regular
monthly Sunday market in Bath and it’s happening right outside our front door in Abbey
Green. The Independent Bath Market will feature up to 25 stalls. The traders are selected
small independent family businesses, makers, growers, crafters, artisans and producers
from the local area. We are all delighted to support the second year of this initiative. The
Market will happen on the third Sunday of every month.
As a family business, we also wanted to support those groups who are there to help us in
these challenging times. To this end, we have joined the Health Staff Discounts, Blue Light
Card scheme and Defence Discount Service and can offer a 10% discount to anyone working
in the NHS, the emergency services and the Armed Forces. The discount will apply to any
room, not already advertised at a discounted rate. You must ask for the discount when
booking and produce the relevant membership card or proof of occupation on arrival.

Q. Want to visit Bath and stay in beautiful affordable accommodation in the heart of the city?
A. Look no further. You have found the right place.
January and February are splendid times to visit Bath if you can spare a day or two – it isn’t busy because there are not many tourists around at the moment, so you won’t have to queue to get into Bath’s major tourist attractions, like the Roman Baths. Our many fine independent restaurants have recovered from their hectic Christmas and New Year and are now looking to fill their tables again.
Come and stay with us in Three Abbey Green. You will find us about 100 yards from the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey. We are surrounded by a wealth of independent shops and restaurants. You can walk to all Bath’s tourist attractions from Abbey Green, so you won’t need your car. You can even have a free guided walking tour of the city with the Mayor of Bath’s Guides.

A little while ago, we teamed up with local company Bramley Products to provide their natural range of bath and body products in the bathrooms. As a result of our guests’ interest in buying the toiletries, we have decided to keep a small amount in stock to sell as a reminder of their time in Three Abbey Green.
How many sixteen year olds do you know who would sign up for a week’s work experience doing chambermaiding in a foreign county? Here in the guest house we know not one but two!
The family business is 15 years old and the co-founders, Sue and Derek, are marking their 70th birthdays. Clearly a special event needed organising to highlight these things. What could be more special than having a party at the Roman Baths?
