Henrietta Garden Apartment - an apartment that sleeps 5 guests in 2 bedrooms
The finely wrought Georgian architecture above is visible from this wide basement entrance, dotted with pot plants. The smartly tiled foyer leads to a huge, comfortable living area with 2 large sash windows. Three alcoves which would have housed the kitchen range and ovens in Georgian times, have been brought up to date with a 42'' 3D TV (with BT Vision and i-Player) on one side and a selection of movies and a music system with i-pad and i-phone docking on the other. In front of the central decorative fireplace are two sumptuous leather sofas to seat 6 and two leather bean-bags. There is contemporary art on the walls along with a long rosewood sideboard and drinks cabinet with fine glassware.
There is a lively sporting theme in the dining room with pictures and framed memorabilia of favourite events. The elegant mahogany dining table to seat 6 even converts to a pool and snooker table. Pretty sideboards store tableware and a selection of games and a tall sash window overlooks a serene private courtyard garden.
An antique desk in the corner of a wide corridor has wi-fi and a laptop. Further along is a small cloak-room with WC and hand basin.
The neat fitted beech kitchen with black granite tops is well organised throughout and includes a Dualit coffee machine. A large range-master cooker has a 5 ring gas hob and electric warming plate, along with two ovens and a pan drawer. Smartly housed are a large fridge and separate freezer, a microwave, a dishwasher and plenty of white crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.
Outside is an atmospheric walled courtyard garden with planted borders that are surrounded by tall, handsome Bath stone buildings. A large circular outdoor table has 6 roomy seats and a large gas BBQ for enjoyable alfresco dining.
The downstairs bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with generous en-suite bathrooms. An indulgent master bedroom has a 5' bed and a leather 2-seater sofa from which to watch TV. Two fitted wardrobes, a long chest of drawers and a tall boy provide lots of storage. Past an arched window filtering light from the courtyard above is the vaulted en-suite.

Guestbook comments from the manager
This is just a quick email to let you know how very much we enjoyed staying at Henrietta Garden Apartments. The property is not just a holiday home, it is a ‘home from home’ with wonderful pictures and nick naks around the place. Even down to toys in the huge bedroom cupboard. The rain shower is very impressive. The kitchen that is fitted is to such a high standard, you can tell it was done for someone’s home as the specification is very high. It had every appliance you could wish for, even an all singing coffee machine. Also another thing, there were condiments and other little things you need to do the odd bit of cooking (although we didn’t get round to much of that) The location is perfect too. I regret though, going in the winter, as we could not use the wonderful outside area, complete with wonderful BBQ. The wonderful features of the property have been refurbished, like the wonderful shutters on the lounge window. Unlike a normal holiday let, this apartment had wonderful furniture and CREAM luxury carpets. It was just amazing. Claire who did the meet and greet, is a wonderful person, who did not just hand over keys, but explained all we needed to know about the apartment, and also left a full of info folder for us to look through. We will not hesitate to book again but for longer next time. Well done Alexa for finding such a gem property and well done Claire for the fantastic greeting.
