A unique architect designed property making the most of the great canal-side location, this unusual contemporary house ranges over 4 floors with oak floors, a glass balustrade and sleek stone-tiled kitchen and bathrooms. The large open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas are split over 2 levels and opened to roof height, making the most of the light, space and canal views.

The stylish living area in soothing marine blues and greens has two sofas, each seating 2 along with an armchair. The TV sits on a weathered beach-comber style sideboard containing books and games. A glass apex has a door leading onto a small balcony with a bench for 2 overlooking the canal. From the living room or balcony, you can watch the action at Wash House Lock, transporting leisure barges into side pound (a small reservoir for re-filling) leading to the spectacular Deep Lock, which at nearly 6 metres is the UK’s 2nd deepest lock.

Officially opened in 1990 by the Queen, the Kennet and Avon Canal is a beautiful cruise-way with boats and barges regularly passing and a towpath for cyclists and walkers out enjoying Bath and lovely villages and towns beyond. The 87 mile long route links London with the Bristol Channel and is made up of three historic waterways with lots of wonderful scenery. Hire a barge, an electric day cruiser, canoes or bikes to explore further.

The large bright kitchen diner has a contemporary fitted cream kitchen with pale silestone work surfaces. There is a 4 ring gas hob, a separate grill and oven, a microwave, a small fridge and separate freezer, a small dishwasher and a combined washing machine and dryer. There is a good range of cookware and books for inspiration. A round oak table has 4 wide stools and a sage coffee maker is provided, (requiring ground coffee). An under stairs utility cupboard has further household utility items.

Downstairs is a spacious sage and grey twin room with two high single 3’ beds that zip and link to become a 6’ superking bed, a small chest of drawers and a hanging rail with shelf space for just towels or accessories. The sleek taupe- tiled en-suite has a bath, a large walk-in shower, a hand basin and WC, with plenty of shelf space for toiletries.

Down another flight of steps is a sage and green double bedroom with a modern 4-poster 5’ king size bed, a small chest of drawers and a hanging rail. The en-suite shower room has a small shower, a hand-basin and a WC. Next to the en-suite is the previous front door, now kept locked and with a curtain over to create a cosy and private bedroom space. The actual entrance is at landing level close to the living areas.

A Home from Home. Ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

With a 10 minute walk to the centre of Bath this made it an ideal base for exploring all the main attractions. The benefit of a private parking space meant we had no hassle trying to locate parking. Having never been to Bath before we found it to be a beautiful city. The Fudge kitchen is a must to visit. The best fudge we have ever tasted. The property was immaculately presented with all the necessary equipment you could need. Our girls especially liked the Netflix and fast wifi.

We would certainly book again the next time we stay in Bath.

The property is located on the South side of the city in a gorgeous area just outside of Widcombe. Within a two minute walk you have access to Widcombe Parade which has local facilities including a bustling deli, newsagent, mini supermarket, chemist, a couple of coffee shops, hairdressers, florists, several pubs, Indian, Chinese and American takeaways. There is also a popular gastro pub named The White Hart which has an excellent reputation for good, locally sourced foods and has alfresco dining in its pretty walled garden.

But more importantly from literally outside of your home leads onto one of the most, well-loved waterways in the UK, the Kennet & Avon Canal path. The path is beautifully scenic with bustling canal life to keep you entertained. The path is perfect for anyone, from your evening stroll to your experienced hiker. You can also cycle (bike hire available locally) along the canal to the interesting Saxon Town of Bradford on Avon (12 miles) which boasts a 12th Century Tithe Barn with craft shops and traditional tea rooms.

Bath is a city best explored on foot to appreciate its Georgian architecture and vibrant street culture. Bridge Lock Mews is perfectly positioned to enable you to leave the car behind and walk over a footbridge to the train station and the start of the city which has many historic sites and museums and galleries, as well as great shops, bars and restaurants. After all the activity, pamper yourselves in the piping hot pools of the Thermae Spa, or enjoy a night at The Theatre Royal or Komedia Comedy Club.
