Enchanting One Bedroom Apartment Next to the Roman Baths!

Bedrooms 1
Space 500 sq ft
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Compact one bedroom apartment in historic house with amazing views and antiques.

Abigail's Parlour Apartment is a surprisingly gracious, but compact, one-bedroom apartment on the first floor of Abbey House, in the very VERY centre of Bath - next to the Roman Baths themselves! It features a beautiful, high ceilinged Georgian sitting room, with original period features, tall windows and dining table and sofa. The amazing windows give an astonishing view over Abbey Green, the big tree and the ancient Crystal Palace Pub.

The bedroom has double bed, wardrobe and writing desk and has views over the cobbled street leading to the Roman Baths, just behind our building.

There is a separate kitchen, with everything you need to fix your own meal, but why stay in when Bath has so many excellent restaurants?

The bathroom has a shower over the tub.

The flat is furnished in a pretty period style and is full of perfectly chosen antiques, as befits this listed building.

However, it is the sitting room, with its two imposing windows overlooking Abbey Green and the fascinating views of the ancient square and it's giant tree that make this apartment so enchanting.

Of course it also has TV, DVD and WIFI and everything you could require, from towels to tea is provided in the flat and all of Bath will be at your doorstep - literally!

About Laura Dunlap

I am a former lead singer, a recent novelist, but I have been creating and running a holiday let business for the past 20 years to support my love of the arts!

Why Laura Dunlap chose Bath

I had already decorated 4 other flats in Abbey House and had my eye on this one, when it became available, I snapped it up because of its first floor situation, its high ceilings and tall windows. The views are amazing and it fits my profile, of tasteful historic style to a tee!

What makes this apartment unique

You will feel as though you belong in Bath - as if you were a real resident, in your own lovely flat, with astonishing views, where you can watch the 'tourists' down in the square, and when you step out your door, all that Bath has to offer, which is a lot, is just waiting outside!

Small, but beautiful and very convenient

  • 5 of 5

They're not kidding about the water pressure in the shower (and the toilet) but otherwise this little apartment is a perfect home base from which to explore the area. We loved being right in the middle of town, close to coffee, dinner, the Baths, and the bus to Stonehenge. I'm not sure it would be great for a really long stay because of the water pressure issues but the shower does work, and if you want more water you can plan a trip to the hot springs! The high ceilings and huge windows are just lovely, and the owner was helpful, friendly, interesting and unobtrusive. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Wonderful accomodations in the best location in Bath!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for cozy accomodations for two in the heart of Bath...look no further. The owner was wonderful to deal with and made it very easy to find our way to park and check in on what had to have been one of the busiest Saturdays in Bath on a summer weekend! Although small, the rooms are perfectly appointed with everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay. Be aware, the water pressure is weak for the shower as we had been advised upfront but perfectly understandable in such an historic building and it got the job done. The historic and ancient tree outside those glorious windows make you feel as if you are in a treehouse! There is a pub across the square which made for a little noise on Saturday night...but it also makes for a wonderful and convenient meal! We would definitely stay here again!

Cute place, ideally located.

  • 5 of 5

Laura was charming and informative when checking us in. The flat, while small, had all that we needed, and the high ceilings gave a more spacious feel. Nice Old World environment.

Bath is the jewel in the crown of the English Countryside. Set in the Mendip Hills, along the river Avon, it is a World Heritage site, so splendid, you will be ravished by its beauty.

Inside Bath, you will find the famous Roman Baths, architectural marvels such as The Royal Crescent and Circus, the beautiful Royal Victoria Park, Jane Austen Centre and the Therma Bath Spa.

Outside Bath, within an hour's drive, are Stonehenge, the cities of Wells and Glastonbury, and more historical marvels than I can recount here.
