Bathwick has a village atmosphere and a real sense of community, yet is only moments away from the amenities of the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath. A level walk through Daniel Street and Henrietta Gardens to Great Pulteney Street, or stroll through Sydney Gardens and visit the Holbourne Museum. The River Avon and Kennet & Avon canal are both close by. Local well-regarded schools include Bathwick St Mary's Primary and King Edwards. Bath Spa Station is just over a mile walk southwest. Resident's parking is available right outside.
Villa Fields, the area of Bathwick, bounded by the railway line, the river, Bathwick Street and Sydney Gardens, took its name from Bathwick Villa, built in 1777 and demolished in 1897. The area remained largely undeveloped until the end of the 19th century: an area of scattered dwellings, orchards and smallholdings. Much of this was demolished, and new houses (mostly substantial semi-detached villas or modest terraced houses in groups of four) were constructed. All roads in the area were renamed - Villa Fields Road became Forester Road, and Powlett Place became Forester Avenue. Three new roads are called Powlett Road, Rockliffe Avenue and Rockliffe Road. All road names are associated with the Forester family, themselves descendants of the Pulteney family. Rockliffe Road & Avenue are named after Captain Forester's estate at Darlington.
