Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday home in England - Eighteen

6/7 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2/3 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.

Sorry, we cannot accept bookings from stag or other all-male groups.

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

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 England

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!

Recommended for large family group in Central Bath

  • 5 of 5

We had plenty of contact and useful information from the owners prior to arrival. The house is spread over 5 floors and accommodated 5 adult couples, 2 teenage boys and a baby. The house definitely has a homely feel, rather than a show home.

It is an easy walk from the house to the city centre and its tourist sights. As such parking is limited and reducing the number of vehicles you take may be helpful.

Altogether a wonderful place to get the family together to celebrate a birthday.

great location, full of character

  • 4 of 5

14 ladies stayed here for a joint 40th birthday. House is superb, a fully equipped kitchen,towels and essentials all provided. Its in a great location, literally 2 mins walk to city centre, pubs and restaurants. A favourite place of mine to eat was the hall and Woodhouse where all 14 of us could dine in a room to ourselves on a large table. Owners were very helpful with any queries. Would love to return next year.

Great big house!

  • 4 of 5

We all stayed here the night before my wedding. It was great from start to finish with Paul organising everything we asked for. The house was as described with more than enough room for all of us. Great facilities which we did not use as only there for 24 hours. Pub just up the road and loads of take always close by. A great big house!

Wonderful venue for large family/friends gathering

  • 5 of 5

We booked as a base for our immediate family for our daughters wedding. It was a perfect location. Property clean, well-maintained and furnished to high standard, with plenty of space for everyone, and always somewhere to escape to if you needed a break. Handily placed for city centre, with excellent traditional pub (Star Inn) just down the road. Would heartily recommend, and would definitely return, should the opportunity arise.

Awesome house and location! A+

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house with character in abundance! If you like history, this house is for you as there is a story within every wall and room of this 5 story home! Terrific location within a 5 minute walk to the town center. Garden is a gem and overall could not be happier with choice of stay. Owners great to work with! This property made our stay in Bath just perfect!

Fantastic house, with everything you need

  • 5 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.

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.
