We are considering a wet room in our new house, with only a glass screen between the shower and vanity. The shower will be adjacent to a freestanding bath with no screen between. Does anyone have experience with this style of bathroom and are there any issues with cleaning or mould growing under the bath (the back of which will be impossible to reach as it will be against the wall)?

Yes if you have a freestanding tub pushed against a wall you will not be able to clean behind it. There are semi free standing tubs available , I’d look for one of those if you are putting it hard up against a wall, gives the look but not the cleaning hassle.

Thanks Lorraine, but I loved the oval style. I've chickened out and gone for the traditional look (sigh!) - at least I won't have to worry about cleaning behind it.
