Behind the grand facades of Bath's beautiful Georgian buildings are an intriguing network of narrow streets where you might chance upon a great cafe, a hidden gallery with dreamy pictures or a boutique full of gorgeous trinkets. In central Bath, tucked away from the main thoroughfare is this pretty little mews house. It comfortably sleeps 3, has its own parking bay and was awarded 4 star by the Tourist Board. There are lots of lovely local amenities nearby so you can explore Bath's extraordinary history whilst making some great discoveries of your own. Pets are allowed by request.
A narrow porch opens up to a bright open-plan living and dining room with a cream sofa and armchair, TV, DVD and good selection of books. French doors open to an attractive green walled courtyard with mews houses and parking bays. There is an extending dining table to seat 4.
The compact and contemporary cream kitchen is new, looks good and is well laid out and well provisioned. There is a gas hob, an electric oven, a microwave, a small dishwasher and a washing machine.
Upstairs is a charming honey-coloured double room with a twin bed that zips together to become a king size bed (5 ft). There is a fitted wardrobe and chest of drawers and two small windows facing the back of tall Georgian terraces. Another pretty little room in olive green has a single bed and some storage.
The smart new bathroom tiled in charcoal and pale grey features a pretty etched porthole window. There is a bath with a shower over, a hand basin and a WC.
Close by is St James Parade with a newsagents, Italian deli and coffee shop, a chemist, organic green-grocers, florist, and art gallery. From the house, it is an easy stroll to the Assembly rooms and several excellent small museums. Continue into Bath city centre, where there are further beautiful historic sites, wonderful shopping, and a great choice of cafes, bars, restaurants, museums and galleries. There is a Waitrose supermarket in the city centre. The property comes with a designated parking space for 1 car. Alternatively the Bath Spa railway and bus station are a 15 minute walk away.
Thanks for your confirmation. It was a great arrangement from beginning till the end at every stage. House was very convenient, Central and has everything one need not even only for short stay but longer periods for a family.
It's clean, staff whom we have interacted with are all enablers and very kind.
We would love to stay again.
*Testimonial taken from www.bathholidayrentals.com
A delightful little cottage, very well thought out with everything you need and where you need it to be. We stayed for a week over Christmas, during which there were some very cold days and nights but the house well insulated with an effective heating system so we were warm and cosy throughout.
Perfect location, minutes from the Royal Crescent and the Circus; in fact we didn't use the car once after we arrived as everything you want to see and do is within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring Bath on foot.
The key question always is 'would we come back?' and in this case the answer is a resounding yes. We loved it.
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.
Nearby is the world renowned Royal Crescent and handsome Circus. They lead into the Royal Victoria Park, an extensive area with indoor/outdoor tennis courts and mini golf, a botanic garden and a huge adventure park for children. Hot air balloon flights also take off from here. The Approach 18 hole golf course is 5 minutes walk away and has wonderful views of Bath and the surrounding hills. The surrounding streets provide great local amenities. At the top of the road is a good bistro -The Chequers, and a handy Co-op supermarket, whilst at the other end is Margaret's Buildings - a pedestrianised Georgian shopping arcade with cafés, restaurants, galleries and gorgeous boutiques. The main high street is only a 5 minute walk away.
