“Historical Elegance with a Cosy Charm and a Personal Touch”
Apsley House in Bath was built as the country home for The Duke of Wellington, after his momentous victory
against Napoleon in the Battle of Waterloo. The rumour is that it was built as a place where he could keep his
mistress of that time, as he was estranged from his wife years earlier.
The history behind the hotel is evident wherever you look, from the original oven downstairs to the Duke’s own
master bedroom on the first floor.
The magnificently proportioned reception rooms offer both style and comfort, with many period features
complimented by the house being furnished with fine antiques and original oil paintings. The gardens are
south-facing and enjoy spectacular views across the countryside, so they are perfect appointed for an evening
aperitif or even a picnic on a summer’s day.
