Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Bath & North East Somerset - Eighteen

6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms

Eighteen was built in 1743 and remains a single, intact, property with many original features, in the heart of Bath. Set as part of a set of such house on an elevated pavement the house has five floors and large, private gardens to the rear. The house is a family house, rented occasionally to visitors.

Lower Ground Floor: Twin bedroom and utlility area .

Ground Floor (main entrance): Dining Room, Kitichen (with gas Aga) and main shower room/toilet

1st Floor: Drawing Room and 'Withdrawing' Room

2nd Floor: Double bedroom and Triple bedroom

3rd Floor: One twin bedroom, one double bedroom and one singe bedroom

Private Gardens to rear: four tiers containing gas barbecue, varied planting and extensive seating areas. There is always a shaded area and (when the sun shines) a sunny area. At the top of the garden is the stone built summer house, with sofa and chairs, a table and a large mix of jazz and classical CDs to listen to.

The house has a very well equipped kitchen and dining area.

Entertainment: Fibre-optic, superfast broadband is available. The Drawing Room has a digital TV with an HDMI cable for streaming from your computer. There is a large (60+) collection of DVDs to choose from. A large selection of games are available too (board games, cards etc). The house contains libraries of books (some 500) to browse, from modern fiction, to travel and science fiction.

The house is not suitable for guests who will have difficulty with stairs.

Bath was not built for cars! However I can offer day passes to park in the nearby residents street parking areas and I have a garage that is an 8 minute walk from the house that you can use. You need to allow time if you bring a car to Bath, but once here you can park it and forget it...

About Paul Brewster

I am currently a senior member of staff at Repton School, Derbyshire, and as such my wife and I live at the school in term time. We have three adult children and one grandson. 'Eigtheen' is our family home, and much as we love being there, we also enjoy sharing it with other people when we cannot be there.

Paul Brewster purchased this house in 2007

Why Paul Brewster chose Bath & North East Somerset

We bought in Bath City having owned a house in a village 7 miles south of Bath for 7 years. Much as we love the countryside, with our children growing up we all felt we would enjoy living in this glorious city - with all that it has on our doorstep.

What makes this house unique

What sold the house to me was the sense of history - the grandeur of the rooms and the sense of space and... finally... the idea of having our own stone summerhouse at the top of the garden!

Fantastic house, with everything you need

  • 5 out of 5
What a Fantastic house.
The house was absolutely perfect for my sisters hen weekend.
The house itself provided everything we needed for all 14 of us. The kitchen was very well equipped and allowed us to cook for all of us, and it was lovely to be able to all sit round a table together for dinner. There was great communal living areas as well as spacious bedrooms.
The house is in a perfect location to access the whole of bath, we were able to walk to all the activities we had booked in over the weekend, and with everyone arriving through different transport modes it was very accessible and easy to find and get to.
Booking was so easy and the communication with the owners was excellent. They were so helpful and always on the end of emails or phone. Thank you.
I definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Bath. Whether it's a hen do, family stay, the house is versatile and great value for money.
Mine and another family have already discussed coming back to bath for another stay at the house next year.

An eclectic, wonderful place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
This was my first time in Bath and I wasn't disappointed! Bath is a beautiful place with a really lovely atmosphere and lots to see and do. Eighteen is possibly the most perfect place to stay to really appreciate Bath. It is right in the centre of the town and in a street of beautiful Georgian Townhouses so you really feel like you are getting the whole experience of Bath. The house itself has a lovely personal feel and it is clearly well loved by its owners, its like a home from home and very welcoming with everything you could possibly need. As a group of 14 we had a lovely relaxing stay where we were able to enjoy each others company and also explore Bath. Possibly the best thing about Eighteen is its owners, who couldn't have been more helpful and kind. I would throughly recommend Eighteen, you will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Well, thank you very much for writing so warmly about your stay at Eighteen. You are right, that the house is set up as our home, and not as a commercially focused venture. You will be very welcome to stay in the house again.

Fabulous house in the centre of Bath

  • 5 out of 5
A really incredible house set in a fantastic location which meant that one could walk to everything in the centre of Bath. The house is spacious and although only ten of us stayed it could easily have taken more without anyone being on top of each other. The garden is lovely and the Summer House really special. The house feels homely and the Aga means it is always very cosy.
The description was accurate, owner and housekeeper very friendly and helpful and the house was clean and well stocked with essentials. Beware of unloading/leaving as the high pavements make parking outside really hard, that's about the only negative and it's a small one. We really hope to return.

Superb location in the heart of Bath

  • 4 out of 5
A lovely family home with a warm and welcoming feel to the whole property. The size and space was perfect for our civilised hen celebrations. The well maintained garden provided the opportunity for socialising outside and a great BBQ. The house is a real winner due to its location just a few minutes walk from all the attractions, restaurants and wine bars of Bath. It suited all members of our group and was a wonderful venue for a super weekend.

Bath is a World Heritage site. Georgian elegance is set against glorious countryside and great shopping, drinking and eating places.

A few minutes walk from the house is the new, state of the art, Thermae Bath Spa draws upon Britains only natural hot water springs. The fabulous roof top bathing area is an experience not to be missed.

The historic Bath Boating Station hires boats for trips on the canal giving a unique and stunning view of the city.

The parks of Bath are lovely - extensive, well planted and tended and a real break from the city.

The 'standout' sites of Bath - The Circus and the Royal Crescent are within half a mile of our house... but Bath is crammed full of lesser known but equally stunning architecture.

For museum lovers we are less than 10 minutes walk from the Holbein Museum, The Jane Austen Centre, the 'Building of Bath' Museum to name just a few.
