Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Bath - Prior Park Cottages

Prior Park Cottages - a house that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

Perfect for city ladies and gents who adore country living and country girls and boys who prefer to frolic in the city. This charming period 3 bedroom home for 6 on the southern slopes of the city will win everyone over. With a combination of stylish and luxurious interiors, great city views, pretty terraces, a short 5 minute stroll to the city centre or rolling green hills to explore, this house will be everyone's cup of tea. Awarded 5 star gold by the Tourist Board.

In an idyllic location, this recently renovated house at the end of a short steep flag-stoned path has rewarding views of the spire of St. Matthews church, the city and surrounding countryside. There are great local facilities, and it's less than a 10 minute walk to the city centre and Bath Spa railway station, with frequent connections to London Paddington and Bristol Temple meads.

The ground floor has a smart and spacious open-plan kitchen and diner that can become a cosy retreat. Centrally placed in the period kitchen with granite work surfaces, is a large range style cooker with a 5 ring gas hob, 2 ovens and a grill. Appliances include a microwave, small dishwasher, small fridge and separate freezer and plenty of china in plate racks. In the middle section of the room is a wood-burning stove set in a handsome bath stone fireplace with a basket of logs, a large leather sofa and small TV. At the far end, in a pretty square bay with decorative stained glass, is a contemporary oak dining table to seat 8. The dining area looks onto a pretty paved front terrace with a bench and outdoor table and chairs for 4.

A linear tiled cloakroom with WC and sink set into a wood worktop doubles as a utility with a washing machine and separate dryer.

Behind the kitchen is a pretty little study with a small desk and chair along with a well-padded decorative iron bench.

Outside is an attractive raised courtyard with lovely views over the city. There is a pretty table and four chairs, two sun loungers and a gas BBQ ready to fire up.

The original stone staircase has a smart grey runner leading up to a large contemporary shower room on a half-landing Tiled in smooth creamy travertine throughout, it has a large walk-in shower, double hand-basins and a WC in a separate alcove.

On the first floor is an inviting living room in rich warm browns, cream and silver with original cornicing and working shutters - a feature throughout the house. At one end is a handsome decorative bath stone fireplace with mirrors reflecting pretty hanging chandeliers. Choose between a large 3-seater sofa, 3 armchairs, a contemporary chaise longue or a vast leather beanbag. On a wood cabinet is a TV with DVD and Sky satellite along with a selection of films.

Also on the first floor is a pretty bedroom with a 5' bed, dressing table and decorative stool. Two built-in alcove cupboards provide hanging space and storage.

On the second floor is a large light and airy cream master bedroom with gorgeous green vistas. A comfortable super king 6' bed has alcoves either side with a selection of novels. A wardrobe provides hanging space with a small chest for storage. There is a small TV with DVD.

With stunning views overlooking the Abbey and City centre, is an indulgent bathroom with a gorgeous egg-shaped free-standing bath tub. It is tiled throughout in smooth creamy travertine with a lovely decorative fireplace adding to the ambience. Add to this a large walk-in shower, double hand basins and WC for complete luxury.

Finally, a pretty twin room has two 3' beds (which can be zipped together to make a superking bed) and a shelved alcove full of books. A fitted cupboard has lots of shelf space and there is a further cupboard on the landing with plenty of hanging space.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was perfect for our group of six adults. Only five minutes' walk from the station and the centre if Bath, the house is comfortable, stylish and well-equipped. I would certainly recommend it

Lovely House

  • 4 of 5

Family of 6 with elderly parents. We enjoyed the house, unfortunately didn't get the sun on the front or back garden areas though despite being end Sept and lovely weather.

The house is suitable for groups, but you need to be aware there is a very steep hill to walk up to the front door with a cobbled path which is not suitable for oldies!

The ad for the property advised there was option for 1 double to be split, but this was not available when we arrived. Caused a few laughs!

Loved Bath and the house is in a good position for proximity to the town centre and amenities. Close to local supermarkets shops pubs and restaurants.

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. The nearest supermarket is Sainsbury's. Nearby Prior Park Garden Centre is great for lunch as well as having a deli, pets, plants cards and gifts. National Trust owned Prior Park Gardens has a lovely walk to a palladium bridge, or explore rural footpaths across the hills above Widcombe for flower filled meadows, hidden churches, manor houses and stunning views of Bath - part of the Bath Skyline walk. The City has many historic sites and museums and galleries, as well as great shops, bars and restaurants. Bath Narrowboats rent barges and bikes to explore the city or the Kennet and Avon canal and towpath. After all the activity, pamper yourselves in the piping hot pools of the Thermae Spa, or enjoy a night at The Theatre Royal or Komedia Comedy Club.

On Prior Park Cottages Road itself there are a few unrestricted parking spaces if you are lucky enough to grab one. Alternatively we provide a parking permit for 1 car to park on the neighbouring streets. The Bath Spa train and coach stations are only about a 5 minute walk away.
