The Hermitage

The old house

The Hermitage is a charming Georgian style country house, with some parts of it dating back to the 16th Century, set in it‘s own gardens and grounds.

We are situated in the village of Box which is just 6 miles north east of Bath via the A4. We have plenty of guest parking available on the drive in our grounds.

There is a lounge and dining room with a high vaulted ceiling exclusively for our guests use where we offer a wide choice of menu at breakfast time including a full English breakfast with vegetarian options.
