Quirky Georgian courtyard apartment in the centre of Bath

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

4 bed, sleeps 6. Central location. Great for families & small groups

Just a stone’s throw from the Royal Crescent and opposite one of the best gastro-pubs in the city: perfect for a romantic getaway, a family holiday or for small groups. We have on street parking available.

This is a spacious courtyard apartment in a beautiful Georgian property. Being on the lower ground floor, it is a little unusual in its layout and while we love the fact it is so quirky - please do take the time to check you would be comfortable staying here before you book!


As well as a comfortable living area with a 4-seater sofa and 2 armchairs, there is a dining table in the main hall that seats 6-8 people. The courtyard area has a bench and is great space for having a coffee outside.


The kitchen has a fridge freezer, electric oven and gas hob as well as a toaster and kettle. It also has basic supplies such as plates, cups, glasses and cutlery.


At the front of the apartment there is one double bedroom which overlooks the small courtyard garden. This bedroom is also next to the bathroom which has a small bath and shower.

At the rear of the apartment are two interconnecting vaulted rooms with a kingsize bed in one room and two singles in the other. The vaulted rooms do not have a door between them so we have listed them as one room - although we've always used them as two rooms. They would suit a family or guests who know each other fairly well. To be even clearer about the layout, we’ve enclosed a floorplan within the pictures of the apartment.

These rooms are built under the road and would have originally been the coal cellars for the entire house in the 1700s. We’ve lived here and slept in these rooms for nearly twenty years – however for some it might seem a bit strange to sleep in a room with curved walls so we feel we should point this out before you book!

About Lyn

We’ve lived in Bath nearly all our lives – and in fact we lived in Rivers Street for almost twenty years! It’s a quirky apartment but we love its eccentricities and believe that there’s not a better street to be based for exploring Bath.

We love to travel and due to work and our families living abroad we get to do a lot of it. In fact, through doing so much travel we really appreciate the importance of local knowledge, insider tips and ‘going where the locals go’ so we're always happy to answer any questions, make suggestions or recommendations of things to do, places to eat, etc.

Clair's Mum Lyn often helps out with managing the apartment so you may see Lyn respond to messages also.

Although you have the whole place to yourself during your stay – we’re not far away (we still live in the centre of town) so we’re available should you need us.

Why Lyn chose Bath

Because it is in arguably the best street in Bath!

A perfect place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay at this property. The flat itself was clean, functional, and the perfect amount of quirky. There was so much natural light, even on dreary days, and such a quiet neighborhood for restful sleep. We had everything we needed and the owner was amazing! Even when my travel group experienced some last minute changes, the owner of the property was so responsive and accommodating. It was much appreciated, especially when we were on the go so very much. I would stay at this place again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone! Thank you!

Just Lovely

  • 4 of 5

Flat was lovely, very spacious and clean. Bed's were very comfy and overall the flat was well equipped. Great bathroom although could have done with extra one with us all being female!

Wasn't easy to find from instructions from car park and we ended up walking the long way around and was a lot more than a 5 mins walk. However loved the flat and would def stay again
