The smartly furnished and dramatic double height living room has lovely views through the dining area, and out into the garden. Central to the room is an original marble fire-place with gas coal-effect fire. The TV is wall mounted and alcoves on either side of the fireplace house a DVD, a selection of films and a Bose sound system. There is a pretty armchair and two opulent cream sofas; one is a large double sofa-bed and seats 3, the other seats 4.
A beautiful light and airy dining room blends into the garden with a contemporary glass wall and ceiling. A dark wood dining table comfortably seats up to 8 and a custom designed side-board of etched glass and warm honey coloured stone provides plenty of storage.
The large walled courtyard garden has been cleverly landscaped to be a year round joy. It is resplendent with pretty trees and shrubs and vines along with two narrow ponds. A garden gate gives you access to Henrietta Gardens, a charming city park.
The small traditional kitchen with stone tiled flooring also has views into the garden and contains a gas hob with electric oven and a small fridge. There is a small separate freezer located in the boiler room and here also is a washing machine combined with dryer.

One has a 5' king bed, a small wall-mounted TV, chest of drawers and large walk-in wardrobe with hanging space, shelves and storage. The other double bedroom has two single 3' beds that can zip and link to become a 6' double, a chest of drawers and a walk-in wardrobe with hanging space, shelving and storage. A third bedroom is suitable for a child and has a single 3' bunk bed at high level accessed by a ladder, with a chest of drawers under.
There is a good sized traditional bathroom with a double-ended roll-top bath (with hand held shower attachment), a hand-basin and WC. In addition, there is a contemporary shower room with a small shower, hand-basin and WC with storage over.

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.
It's lovely to be in the centre of Bath with all the choices of an elegant lively and cultured city within a 5 minute level stroll. There is a wonderful array of shops, restaurants, bars, museums, galleries, cinemas and theatres close at hand, including a Waitrose supermarket for everyday essentials just down the road. There are fascinating historic sites nearby, such as the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey and the Pump Rooms, as well as the Thermae Spa where you can experience the healing, bubbling Bath spa waters for yourself. In the evening book a show at The Theatre Royal, Komedia, or The Little Theatre Cinema. If you choose to do very little or embrace it all, it makes for a memorable time spent together.
