Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Bath & North East Somerset - Haystack
Haystack - a house that sleeps 16 guests in 6 bedrooms
Live the high life at this spacious and contemporary apartment for 14 (or up to 16 with the sofa bed) in central Bath. Perched above a fashionable restaurant (opening in June 2014) with fabulous city views and a thriving night-club scene just a stone's throw away, you'll see why Georgian Bath became the hottest ticket outside London for its top combination of shopping, fashion, entertainment, high society, eye-catching architecture, and health benefits from the thermal spa waters.
The grand apartment in a listed Georgian building has been given a contemporary makeover in pavilion grey, with an impressive staircase leading up to the large open plan living and dining room, sociable kitchen and 6 bedrooms, all with their own small TV and DVD.
The living room is great for gatherings, with high ceilings and three tall sash windows with glorious views of distant hills, Grand Bath stone terraces, Sham Castle and Bathwick Hill on the eastern slopes of the city. Below are gardens and buzzing outdoor terraces when the restaurant is open. There are stylish sofas to seat 12, one of which is a sofa-bed and additional pouf chairs for extra seating. Above a marble lined decorative fire-place is a large TV with DVD and deep alcoves on either side hold a selection of books, games, films and Wi-Fi. At the other end, a large oak table seats 14 with comfy leather dining chairs for all.
The sociable fitted kitchen has oak floors and a wood-look surfaces, with a large central island and breakfast bar with stools for 5. There is an electric hob with oven, a large fridge with separate freezer, a dishwasher and lots of storage. Turn up the sounds on a retro radio with ipod docking and mix cocktails by a large white dresser with an extensive collection of glassware and crockery. There are lively views of the city streets with handsome Bath stone buildings, vintage shop fronts and café society.
