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!
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!
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!
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!
Can not use shower, only very hot water or cold. You can take a bath in the narrow tub because you can mix the very hot with the cold water but not very convenient and after several days it got old. I did like the size and layout and the location was excellent.
The apartment is in the most perfect location with the Roman baths and Abbey right on your doorstep.
Although small, the apartment has everything needed with provisions for tea and coffee and even some biscuits left out to make us welcome. The only negative is the shower (weak water pressure) but that shouldn't put people off from staying here
The location of the Abbey House is a 5 star. Very clean and Laura was always available to speak and help answer your questions. There was very good WiFi and wonderful hot water. The washer worked well. The apt. was very cold at first but a few hours after you turn the heat on it was very comfortable.
On the down side... It can be quite noisy outside. The Abbey is VERY close and they ring the bells throughout the day and night. They are loud. Be aware... If you are not from Europe, this Flat is very tiny. We had a problem with the sheets, bed cover or bed mattress with a very bad smell. I am sure they will remedy this. Parking spaces are not easy to find but you are given a parking pass for free parking. We accidentally took the parking pass and Laura was kind enough to be kind about our blunder. We are immediately fast posting it to her from another village.
The apartment was clean and well maintained, and in a great location, with restaurants and shops on your doorstep and the Roman baths just around the corner. Very good communication with the owner. We will be returning to this apartment.
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.
