Alongside in separate utility cupboard is a washing machine and mini-freezer and just outside is a tanked cupboard housing the tumble dryer.

Floor to ceiling glass doors lead off from the dining table and open up fully to the private garden. Outside is an attractive little walled garden with an outdoor table and chairs for 6 on a sun deck beside a paved lawn.

On this floor is a large bedroom with an original marble fireplace. There is a painted cream and oak chest of drawers and wardrobe, TV and a large armchair in a spacious bay window. Two 3' beds can zip and link to become a 6' bed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Myself and friends have spent many a weekend away at various houses around the country; this one is the best yet. Great location (easily walkable to the city centre), nice welcome pack and information file, super comfy beds, throws & linen. Has everything you'll need. A real home from home. Total pleasure to stay here.

We always pick a home close to town for ease of walking. This home was perfect for train, restaurants, shops and historic sight seeing. It was very spacious for sleeping arrangements with our family of 7. It had everything we needed in the kitchen and I recommend cavendish cooks for a few meals as well. As I was vacationing from cooking! I recommend bringing a few games with you for down days or evenings in. It was nice for the kids on a rainy day to watch some movies that were in the home. We easily were able to park a van on teh street with teh provided permit. It was also very nice to have had the extras provided such as milk, muesli, cookies and wine. Nice touch.

The property benefits from being equal distance to the Bath high street and another gorgeous area of Bath called Widcombe. The local facilities in Widcombe Parade are very good and include a newsagent, chemist, a couple of coffee shops, hairdressers, florists, and several pubs, restaurants and Indian, Chinese and American takeaways. Alternatively Bath has a vast array of exciting shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes to choose from. There are many historic sites nearby along with museums and galleries. Visit the Komedia comedy club, the theatre Royal, or the Thermae Spa. Take a boat ride up river and have lunch at The Mill a popular waterside pub, rent bikes to ride along the canal towpath towards Bradford-upon Avon. Or simply enjoy the lovely city parks. Marks and Spencers or Waitrose are nearby for food supplies. The property is only a minute walk away from the canal where you can walk to Widcombe in one direction or as far as Bathampton in the other direction. Bike hire is also close by if you wanted to explore the canal path by bike. Alternatively long boats are available to hire if you wanted to do something different on your holiday by cruising down the canal.
