A Hidden Gem

Make the most of our beautiful secret space. So close to central Bath, but largely unknown. Whether for a peaceful walk in nature, observing wildlife, or learning about the people who are remembered here with our Social History Trail.

We hope that you appreciate the serenity, reflect on its role as part of the community and respect those buried here and the important heritage being preserved for future generations.

Smallcombe offers walks in a beautiful valley close to central Bath and is an intriguing diversion off the National Trust Skyline Walk.
