Play the leading characters on stage at this sumptuous and dramatic garden property for 6 in the centre of historic Bath. Situated in an elegant terrace of Bath stone houses linking The Royal Crescent and The Circus, this beautiful apartment on 3 floors has distinctive period details and a thrilling decor. The spacious rooms with their high ceilings, decorative cornices, tall sash windows (some with original shutters), start at the ground floor and head down a further 2 floors. There are two elegant double bedrooms, each with a beautiful en-suite bathroom, and a large third bedroom that will require use of one of the en-suite facilities. Therefore best suited for 2 couples, a family or same sex group.

An atmospheric garden room with lively bird and blossom wallpaper has an original decorative fireplace, two easy chairs and a sideboard. It leads out onto a pretty walled courtyard garden with wrought-iron table and chairs to seat 6. Leading down stairs is a bookcase with a selection of books.

At ground floor level is a plum coloured cloak-room with small hand-basin with storage under and a WC. A large fitted utility is situated in the basement through the 2nd bedroom. It has a washing machine and separate dryer and plenty of worktop space with a door leading into the small shaded courtyard.

The three double bedrooms are down thickly carpeted stairs lined with pictures. The spacious Master bedroom has rich green and cerise peony wallpaper behind the ornate 5' king size bed. A velvet bedcover, richly embroidered window drapes and large mahogany chest of drawers all add to the grandeur. A large fitted wardrobe provides shelving and storage.

Down a final flight of steps is a large twin room in green and plum colours, with pretty antiqued silver mirrors and a dressing table. Two single 3' beds zip and link to become a 6' super king bed. In the lobby just outside beside the stairs, is a small demi-wardrobe with a two drawers. Please note this room has a low ceiling.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Many thanks for your great service in helping us to find the perfect place for my husbands 60th birthday. We had a fab time and the apartment was to die for!! It was warm and cosy, perfect kitchen to sit, eat and chat, as was the lounge. It was everything my husband wished for. Would recommend you and use you again. Many thanks once again. Perfect!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Bath, thanks to this perfect home base for our time there. When I first entered the building, I was greeted by a shabby hallway with worn, dirty carpet. I thought, oh no! But fear not. That's just the common area of the building. A short walk down the hall and you come to the front door of the wonderful townhouse. Everything inside that door is wonderful, new, clean, everything you had hoped for and much more.

Thirteen-foot ceilings, beautiful crown moldings, wonderful, tasteful furnishings, everything is first class. If we'd stayed longer than 2 days, we would have enjoyed the amazing commercial-quality kitchen appliances more. There's a beautiful little garden out back where the smokers in our group spent much of their time.

Just a half-block away are great restaurants, one called Circus that's near "The Circus" housing ring, and one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever enjoyed, in the other direction, up a pedestrian street closed to cars. Wonderful shops along that street, and a great little cafe that serves delicious breakfasts.

One long-term parking spot comes with your reservation, and we were able to park right across the street from our townhouse. Our group had a second car, and we found a long-term public parking lot a short walk away, at 8 pounds/day.

We had planned to take the free city walking tour, but when we saw that Bath is quite hilly, we decided to take the hop-on/hop-off bus tour instead, and we enjoyed that. We found ATM cash machines and grocery stores just a few blocks away.

This was a wonderful, no-disappointments apartment. I just wish we could have stayed longer!

First class customer experience and stunning property

  • 5 of 5

Firstly thank you to Alexa and Marcus for tending to our every enquiry. We knew as soon as we were treated to top tier customer experience that the property would not disappoint.

The property if at all possible, surpassed the pictures. Fixture fittings and contents retained the same quality as the building itself.

Plus, on a cold January weekend, it was very warm and sound proof. Our welcome package was a very special touch. The location is second to none.

We will be coming back, thank you Alexa and team!

Excellent house in historic central bath

  • 5 of 5

We had a 4 night stay prior to Easter. The House was perfect for our family of 2 teenage boys. Close to all the attractions in town and many restaurants, we never used our car during the stay. The Kitchen was well equipped and the living room very comfortable. Everybody slept well and the main bed was very comfortable. The basement room is very dark without lights and is a couple of flights of stairs from the upstairs toilet unless the occupants use 1 of the ensuites upstairs. But our 14 year old son managed a good 11 hours sleep in there when allowed so great for sleep! Bath has lots of excellent places to eat and nice things to do. The 12 or 18 hole pitch and putt is also great fun 10 mins walk away in Alexandria park to while away a few hrs once you've done the sights.

Bath & the Best of the West!

The attractions of the World Heritage City of Bath, are well-known, but Bath is also a perfect base from which to explore the picturesque West Country of England. Located close to the M4 and M5 motorways, 1.5 hours by train from London and just over half an hour from Bristol International Airport, Bath is surrounded by several designated areas of outstanding natural beauty and many of the region's attractions can be reached within a short journey time from the city.

One firm family favourite is Longleat, owned by the Marquis of Bath and set in 900 acres of landscaped parkland. Longleat Safari Park is home to the famous Lions of Longleat and a full day of fun is guaranteed, as this attraction boasts not just the safari, but a maze, adventure park, Jungle Express and much more.

Heading slightly further west is the cathedral city of Wells with its narrow streets, abundance of historic buildings such as the moated Bishop's Palace and lively twice-weekly market. In the same direction you will find Cheddar Caves and Gorge where the world-renowned Cheddar cheese is made and the caves of Wookey Hole, home of the legendary Witch of Wookey – great for a rainy day underground adventure!

En route from Bath to Wells, you should not miss the mystical Glastonbury Tor, one of the most spiritual sites in the UK. Steeped in history and legend, the climb to the top is well worth the effort for the views across the Somerset Levels.

World famous Glastonbury Festival needs little introduction, however, it's always worth checking out what's on at The Royal Bath & West Showground on the outskirts of Shepton Mallet which hosts anything from antiques fairs to The Royal Bath & West Show.

To the south east of Bath lies Stonehenge, a majestic stone circle that has been the subject of much speculation ranging from how it was built to ceremonial significance. Audio tours are available on entry and it retains its magic whatever the season, but particularly around the summer and winter solstices. Around 25 miles away is Avebury, considered by many to be the most impressive of all remaining pre-historic earthworks in Europe.

For outdoor enthusiasts there is a wealth of walks, cycle rides and boating opportunities with cycle and canoe hire readily available. Bath is an ideal base for sporting aficionados, whether as spectators or participants when attending events such as rugby or football matches, Badminton Horse Trials, Castle Combe Circuit or perhaps taking a trip down to the coast where you will find Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, where the sailing events for the 2012 Olympics were held.

Last but by no means least, neighbouring Bristol with its iconic suspension bridge, floating harbour, SS Great Britain, vibrant street life and home to famous street artist, Banksy, should not be missed.

Whatever your taste, stay with Bath Holiday Rentals and our helpful, knowledgeable staff will assist you in planning your perfect stay in the West Country.

Brock street links The Royal Crescent and The Circus. Both of which are the masterpiece of John Wood the Elder and one of the key reasons Bath was awarded the title of World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is surrounded by interesting museums and galleries, great restaurants and bars, lovely shops and boutiques. Nearby are historic sites such as The Royal Crescent, The Assembly Rooms, The Roman Baths and The Bath Abbey. Around the corner is Margaret's Buildings which is a quaint pedestrianized street with a couple great restaurants, galleries and lots of boutiques and shops. The Circus restaurant is also a few doors down from the property and is highly recommended. The high street is only a couple minutes' walk away and there is a range of evening entertainment at the Theatre Royal, The Komedia comedy club, The Little Theatre Cinema or pampering at the Thermae Spa. You could coordinate your visit with one of the many festivals in music, literature and food or perhaps take a hot-air balloon flight from adjacent Victoria Park.
