Mews Cottage is a lovely hideaway, warm welcoming and practical. Situated on a quiet street overlooking the Western side of the city, it is convenient to access the centre of Bath or the surroundings to the East, North and South and the M4.
The living room and kitchen (and single bedroom) are upstairs and thus have the benefit of some lovely views over Bath.
Downstairs for the entrance, Main (double bed) and 2nd (twin beds) bedroom and bathroom.
The property has 2 floors, with the lounge, kitchen and single bedroom upstairs, bathroom and double and twin bedrooms downstairs, and is approached via a sloping driveway. Not suitable for a wheelchair user, due to the stairs, sorry.
The delightful small but private and sheltered sunny garden is accessed by a flight of stone steps externally. There is a small lawn area and some shrubs, and seating, tables and a barbeque are provided. A lovely place to sit in the morning sun.
Off street parking to the front. This can be a bit difficult to access due to the slope of the area and other cars parked on the street, but you can always park in front of the cottage on the road as there is free unlimited on street parking.
Bath is about 1 hour's drive to the nearest beach at Weston Super Mare (sand, sand, sea and even more sand when the tide is out!) and 2 hour's drive to the beautiful Devon coast.
There is a pitch and putt course with panoramic views over the city within walking distance (25 min.), and numerous other excellent 18 hole courses within 10-20 min. driving time.
M4/A46 (Junction 18 on the M4) is about 15 minutes and Bristol International Airport is 30 minutes by car. London Heathrow is about 1hr 45m, Portsmouth docks about 2hrs.
London Paddington rail station is just over an hour on the train from Bath Spa station. A taxi will then be able to whisk you to Mews in less than 10 min.
Driving around Bath is mostly OK, but parking can be hard to find in the centre, so walking and taxis are often as quick and economical.
Bradford on Avon is a pretty old woollen mill town only a 20 min. drive away. Glastonbury is 45 minutes away, or visit Cheddar caves or Longleat Safari Park. Castle Coombe, a quaint village (and motor racing circuit) is 30 min. Bristol 30 min., Stonehenge, Lacock, olde worlde unspoilt village, the South West awaits you.
Bath itself was a big city, like Rome, and became a retirement centre for Roman generals and senators. Its Roman heyday lasted for 400 years! The Romans only left when their empire collapsed and the rest is history. In the time of King George, the city fathers built many innovative buildings in a style that has come to be known as 'Georgian'. Bath is the birthplace of this once modern architecture. Now, with its architectural integrity and the golden hue of its stone, it is one of the jewels of Britain's heritage. Today, Bath is a small, but cosmopolitan, vibrant and lovely city. Great restaurants, museums, galleries, shops, theatre, the Thermae Spa baths, hot springs, walks or cycle rides along the canal or river, balloon rides, always something going on, a wonderful dry and sunny climate make this lovely city a great holiday destination. Near Mews Cottage there are several pubs (many provide good food), local shops, parks, even a supermarket, within a 10 min. walk.
