Rudloe Park Estate was once the large country house of a landed estate, built in an unrivalled position overlooking Bath and surrounded by some of the prettiest countryside around Bath. Stunning views with a spectacular view 6 miles down the Box Valley to Bath.
The beautiful Gothic architecture of this fine old house provides the ideal setting for re-creating the style and charm of a more elegant and leisured age.
Our aim is to make you feel like a special guest in our beautiful Victorian Country Home in the West. In keeping with this, life at Rudloe Park is not rushed, the pace is relaxed with the emphasis on warm, friendly service.
The History of Rudloe Park Estate and Rudloe Hall Hotel
The main house was built at the turn of the century - circa 1800 by Judd Pictor, a larger-than-life local businessman. Today we'd call him an entrepreneur. Judd was a self-made man and a flamboyant social climber, eager to display his wealth. Of his many business interests, two related to Rudloe Hall. He was the local Postmaster, and was responsible for the lucrative local Stage Coach Mail run from Bristol, through Bath and on to London. He was also a quarry master, owning a very large estate in the Box, Corsham area, and he was the major supplier of the beautiful, honey-coloured Bath stone that Bath is so famous for today.
