The National Trust have been restoring and protecting many of the UK’s heritage buildings, gardens and natural landscape for over 120 years. Bath is home to one of these gardens, Prior Park Landscape Garden. Set in the valley below Georgian entrepreneur and philanthropist Ralph Allen’s former home, experience incredible views of Bath and the Palladian Bridge, which is one of only four in the world. Prior Park is just a 25-minute walk from Combe Grove, if you head along the drive to Claverton Down Road and turn right onto Ralph Allen Drive, follow the road down and you will find it on your right.

To the north of Bath, lies Dyrham Park, a 17th century house, garden and ancient deer park with a herd of almost 200 fallow deer. Explore the 270 acres and you’ll find an array of wildlife and walks.
