Overview

About the property

Old Orchard - an apartment that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms

Take the scenic road to Bath, park up outside your front door and live a life of luxury in this jewel of an apartment in the centre of historic Bath. This beautifully furnished and stylish period apartment sleeping up to four in two double bedrooms, one of which can also be a twin. The first and second floors have retained original features alongside contemporary décor. It is tranquil and luxurious, and benefits from a car-parking space for one car, and all that Bath has to offer practically on your doorstep. It has been awarded 5 star by the Tourist Board.

Uncork the champagne in the sparkling black granite and glossy cream kitchen. It is well equipped with plenty of cookware, china and glass, a huge fridge/freezer, a gas hob and double electric oven, a microwave, and a combined washing machine and dryer. There is also a breakfast bar with two stools.

Live the life of riley in the lustrous gold living room with a large sofa to languish on and two leather chairs in front of a grand fireplace. There is a TV with sky TV, DVD and movies and games to ensure you never get bored. Two large sash windows are framed by shimmering curtains. There is a dining table here that comfortably seats 4.

Recline in the elegant bedrooms - one dressed in silver and black with king-sized 5 ft bed and Vi-sprung mattress, a built-in wardrobe and lots of drawer space and light, and the other in rich shades of cream with twin beds that can zip together to become a super king size bed.

The contemporary bathroom has been completely tiled in limestone with a long bath (with shower over), a wc and generous hand basin set into drawers.

Although you certainly do not need a car when in Bath there is a private parking space for 1 car out front the property. Alternatively the train and bus stations are a ten minute walk away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay in Bath. The property was very comfortable, quiet & well appointed. Your staff were lovely & very helpful. The location is very central and the snacks & tea at "Made by Ben" around the corner were outstanding. We would happily come back.

Great location, clean, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a super stay in Bath. The 2 level apartment is easy walking distance of the centre, a great restaurant, Aqua, 20 paces from the building so you don't have to go far if you don't want to. Very clean, well equipped. Plus Bath Rentals who met us with the key were lovely and very helpful. Great place.

Fantastic apartment in central Bath

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away in the centre of Bath, this two bed roomed property with parking is ideal for a city visit, the apartment is furnished to a high standard and the kitchen has every appliance and utensil you could need. I will definitely stay here again. This is my third rental with Bath Holiday Rentals and can highly recommend them.

a good place to stay in Bath

The flat was clean and very comfortable. In the evenings, we enjoyed the serenity that gave us peaceful rest. It has close proximity to Bath town centre. Thanks Alexa for the referrals to various good restaurants in Bath, all within easy reach on foot. Thanks to Sara as well for waiting for and ensuring our smooth arrival. This is a good place to stay in Bath!

Quiet, well-organized rental

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in a great location. Quiet as it was away from the street. Being from the US, I was a little nervous getting in and out of the narrow lane that led into the parking lot, but after a day, it was no problem. Water pressure was good. Robert, our greeter, was wonderful. He even brought us milk, cereal, wine, cookies, and chocolates! Nice touch. Alexa was great with communicating with us and informed us of some construction next door that was happening during our stay, which wasn't a problem as we were out most of the day. Very professionally organized with clear instructions for appliances and checkout procedure. Apartment had a binder of recommendations for restaurants, etc. Wifi speed was excellent. Short walk to Waitrose and other Bath attractions. All in all, great stay and would rent from them again.

Cozy apartment in the heart of Bath

  • 5 of 5

The two bedroom apartment is conveniently located in the heart of Bath with easy walks to all of the restaurants and attractions of the city. The furnishings, linens and kitchen are all very high quality and make for a very comfortable stay. The apartment comes with a private, off street parking place which is a very important benefit for those renting a car during their stay.
