About the property

Sleeps 4+1(2 bedrooms)spacious well appointed apartment Lovely views & gardens

Weston Lodge is a grand Georgian building set in its own grounds. With its stylish decor this romantic and quirky spacious apartment on the second (top) floor will wow and cosset you.

You may arrive when you wish (after 3pm) and will have an allocated parking space, with further off-street parking for additional cars, extensive sunny communal gardens and a little bit of peace and quiet.

The apartment is well stocked with kitchen equipment and even a few basic culinary necessities etc, to wide screen TV, DVD player, radio and Wi-Fi, Hi-Fi books and magazines to browse.

Whether your stay (minimum of 2 nights) is for family, friends or a romantic weekend get away, you could not ask for a more delightful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Bath City Centre, and yet you are within seconds of quiet countryside walks which can connect to the Cotswold Way.

This is a stylish and peaceful apartment within the fine setting of a Grand Georgian Bath building.

It is well appointed, quiet and has lovely countryside views and extensive gardens & parking for numerous cars.

Sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms, with the option of a 5th fold-up bed in the lounge or master bedroom.

Please state how you want the beds set up when you book.

+ Romantic? Most definitely!

+ Two couples? Ideal.

+ For a group of friends? Perfect.

+ A family? Oh yes.

- Smokers? Sorry, definitely not inside the building.

- Pets? Not allowed at all, sorry.

- Hen or stag parties? No sorry, definitely not; this is a quiet residential building; so no noisy groups please.

-Easy arrival / check in, with keys held securely in a key-safe, so you may arrive when it suits you, after 3pm, sometimes earlier.

You feel you are privileged to stay in a building such as this, which has a grand feel about it. The bathroom is the quirkiest I've ever seen.

Shops in Weston "village" are only a stroll away and the 30 minute walk into town is a delight, along leafy residential streets, through Royal Victoria Park, along the famous Royal Crescent and via the Circus to central Bath and all it's delights.

Or it's easy to get a bus, taxi or even drive into central Bath.

There are country side walks on the doorstep too.

The apartment has gas central heating and is mainly carpeted, with a tiled floor in the kitchen, and cushion floor in the master bedrooms en-suite bathroom.

The master bedroom with king size (5ft) double bed and en-suite bathroom is in it's own wing of the apartment, and so would be quiet for a child using the fifth bed, if they needed to be in bed earlier than the rest of the group.

We provide the 5th extra fold up bed on request in this bedroom (or in the lounge).

The second bedroom can have twin beds, or these can be joined to make a comfortable king size (5ft) double bed.

++++++++++

Please specify how you would like the beds set up when booking, in a message to me.

++++++++++

There is not sufficient room to put the extra bed in the second bedroom.

This room has an en-suite shower room, which is small, but has a loo and spacious shower.

The fold-up bed is provided for occasional use (in the lounge or master bedroom) and linen (and towels) are provided for this bed, when required.

A childs travel cot can be provided too, on request, but you would need to provide your own linen for this please.

Note that access to a loo is only through either one of the bedrooms.

Kitchen: Stylish well fitted separate kitchen. Equipment includes, electric oven and 5 ring gas hob with extractor fan, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, kettle, toaster, cafetiere and all the usual cooking utensils and pans etc. Nice views over Bath from the kitchen windows.

About Jon Lodge

We try to provide comfort and character in nice locations.

Jon Lodge purchased this apartment in 2002

Great Location at a historic building

  • 5 of 5

Loved this location - close to historic Bath but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable while providing free parking. Loved the updated amenities while preserving the old-world charm and decor! The only thing that was not perfect was the very firm and not-so-new mattress.

Lovely space

  • 5 of 5

Very nice accommodations and an easy, convenient walk to bus into central Bath. There is a nice coffee shop/bakery nearby (not open Sundays). Grocery store and pub are a ten-minute walk. Would be an ideal space for two couples or a family of four. Owner was helpful and responded to questions quickly. Highly recommended.

Spacious Accommodations in Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

We're from Central Florida and visiting England for a month. We stayed in the Weston Lodge for the past ten nights. We rent our Florida riverfront condo on VRBO (listing 332193) so used VRBO to locate this stay.

PROS:

Centrally located in Weston on a lovely street and easy walk to Tesco's market, a pub with lunch & dinner, and a nearby cafe. It's a quick taxi ride to Bath (~10£).

The apt is quite spacious and we found it very quiet with no road noises.

The wifi was fast and reliable.

Clothes washer & portable dryer was convenient for our longer stay.

Full kitchen had all the appliances we needed.

CONS:

With the following enhancements I would rate the Weston Lodge 5 stars:

Needs more clothes hanging space and lots more clothes hangers for those staying more than a couple days.

Needs a painter to come in for about 1 day to recaulk the shower and repaint most of the wood trim which looks a bit tired. The carpet coming up the last flight of stairs has seen better days.

Overall we were pleased with our stay here.

A pleasure to stay here

  • 5 of 5

Our title really says it all it was a pleasure. The apartment was much bigger than we anticipated and the view from the front windows gave a relaxing feel to the place. It was quiet, after a minor 'hiccup' the internet worked adequately for our needs, the shower was large compared to most in the UK with no lack of hot water or pressure. The kitchen was well equipped and the fridge was that of a normal household. We walked into Bath on most days even after we had taken the car to tour the area it made our day to take the walk. Other positive reviews of this property sum it up well and we found a new place to dine in Bath, Browns near Pultney Bridge, with Monday to Friday two course lunch £11.95 well worth the visit. Tesco's a short walk was handy for an instant meal for the two of us. Would we stay here again yes, do we recommend Weston Lodge a resounding yes.

Short stay at the Weston Lodge

  • 4 of 5

Weston Lodge is elegant, immaculately clean and has everything that you need for a pleasant stay. An added special touch was a beautiful Christmas tree with lights.

Lovely peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and particularly enjoyed the peaceful location. It was very convenient as we were visiting our daughter who works at the nearby RUH in Bath. The flat was extremely well equipped with the added bonus of a dishwasher. It was only a few minutes' walk to the local Tesco store which had everything we needed. We appreciated the informative email from the owner beforehand and he was also very quick to respond to any other questions we had while we were there. After driving around the local area it was sometimes a relief to get back to the peaceful flat with its allocated parking. We discovered there was such a good bus service into the centre of Bath that we tended to use that most of the time. On one occasion four of us (all adults) got on a bus expecting to pay £4 each for a day ticket and the driver advised there was a new group ticket for £8 (Bath inner zone), £13 (outer zone) which allows up to 5 people unlimited travel all day if you buy the ticket after 9:30am Monday to Friday and all day Sat,Sun & public holidays. We tried out a few of the owner's recommended cafes/restaurants and had lovely meals at all of them. Our particular favourite was the Cote Brasserie. We're looking forward to trying some of the others when we come back to Bath. We also recommend the Bizarre Bath walking comedy walk (not a history tour of Bath) which runs from late March to the end of October. Also it's only 21 miles to Longleat Safari park where apart from the amazing animals you'll see on the safari drive through you also get the best paninis and caramel shortcake I've ever tasted. There are so many places to visit in the surrounding areas that we can't wait to come back hopefully sometime next year.

Owner's Response: This is the best review I have ever read (about anywhere), because it is comprehensive and informative, and therefore useful for other guests, which is largely the point of reviews. The bus stop is about 150m from Weston Lodge, and they come about every 10 mins, so this is a really good option and so sensible for those that don't know central Bath well. Thank you to these excellent guests.

Weston Lodge is a grand Georgian building set in its own grounds in a quiet residential area of the wonderful historic Georgian city of Bath.

Close to many amenities, from a Michelin starred restaurant to supermarkets and pubs, in the "village" of Weston, and just two miles and 10 mins drive from the Roman Baths to the centre of vibrant Bath, frequent buses run as often as every 15mins from 200m away to the centre & train/bus station until 2330. A taxi is only £8 for 4, or it's a pleasant walk in 35mins.

Whether your stay in Bath is for family, a wedding, with friends, or a romantic weekend get away, you could not ask for a more delightful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Bath City Centre, and yet you are within seconds of quiet countryside walks which connect to the Cotswold Way.
