About the property

1 bed self-catering apartment to sleep 2 in Batheaston village, near Bath

Contemporary, beautifully finished ground floor 1 bed self-catering apartment with courtyard, decking, patio furniture, BBQ & vehicle parking. Situated 5Km east of the world heritage city of Bath in Batheaston village. Ideal retreat for couple or young family.

Situated just outside Bath in a conservation area and within 100m of the River Avon, the 1890 property belies the stunning contemporary interior. Compact but perfectly formed, the space has been designed with great care and sociable living in mind. Everything you could need in a clean, simple package. The living area combines lounge, dining and kitchen in one seamless space. Access is to the rear of the property via a lovely courtyard, part decked, part gravelled with imaginatively planted borders and parking for 1 vehicle. There is a BBQ and patio furniture with parasol for those lazy summer days.

Nearby Pubs/Resturants: There are two gorgeous settings for a lovely meal, the Bathampton Mill is on the River Avon, with seasonal water taxi's taking you to and from Bath City Centre. Bathampton Mill is a stunning location and fantastic food. Further along the road you will find The George perfect for refreshments after a walk along the Kennet & Avon Canal one way leads to Bath City Centre, the other to Bradford on Avon. The canal is a relaxing way to spend the day strolling along enjoying the countryside, Canal Barge's and wildlife. You can reach these places either by foot a mile up the road or by car. Either way you wont be disappointed in the delights Batheaston has to offer. A real must to visit!!

There are also some closer, more basic pubs, offering pub grub and live entertainment.

A luxurious apartment, excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely lovely apartment, just like the photographs. No detail in the flat has been overlooked and it provides a great home from home, just nicer. It's ideally placed for Bath city centre, we walked in to the city in around 30 minutes, and the bus and taxi into Bath were easy and cheap. Ideal for a relaxing holiday, but good nightlife was never too far away. I'd recommend this to anyone, we had a really enjoyable stay and would definately come again.

Perfect Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled from the US to the UK for the first time and decided to drive from Heathrow to Bath. By the time we arrived my nerves were frayed. Andrew was very proactive not only in allaying my fears but in anticipating our needs. The flat was absolutely perfect for us during our 2-day stay. It was a nice haven away from the bustling Bath, yet close enough for convenience. The flat is beautifully refurbished and has all the modern conveniences. I highly recommend this property for anyone considering a visit to Bath and its surroundings.

lovely cosy place

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate and cosy. In a very pretty area and very close to Bath. Lovely walks near river and nice pubs - we went to Hare and Hounds close by which had fab food. Didn't meet Andrew but communication was great and easy. Car parking space is small but this didn't worry me and previous reviews said so. Comfortable place and just like the pictures. Nice to have own entrance and decking area. Can't think of any negatives. Thanks Andrew !

Clean, lovely decor and close drive to attractions

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lovely place. The decor is especially intriguing and delightful. We were able to walk to the local pubs and drive to various towns that we wanted to visit. A lovely stay overall and the weather even cooperated.

The small historic city of Bath nestles, like a gem, in a network of valleys on the River Avon, where you're never more than a mile or two from lush countryside. The west country region has the most gorgeous and evocative English Countryside, there are many beautiful villages, towns and stately homes to explore, not to mention ancient history of Stonehenge and Avebury dating back.

The Roman Baths and New Thermae Spa give World Heritage Bath more than just a visual feast of world class architecture such as Bath Abbey, The Royal Crescent and Pump Rooms. A diverse city, Bath boasts great shopping, pubs, clubs and restaurants, you could easily lose several days exploring its many facets from Bohemia to high society.

Batheaston village is just 2 miles from Bath running alongside the river Avon. There are lovely walks along the Kennet and Avon canal, which will take you directly into Bath or you could take the river taxi into town from The Bathampton Mill gastro pub just up the road.

Other Activities: Chilling out in Bath Therma Spa

Golf: There are several excellent golf courses within 15 - 20 minutes drive.
