Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Bath - Russel Garden Apartment

Russel Garden Apartment - an apartment that sleeps 2 guests in 1 bedroom

In the golden heart of classic Georgian Bath is a shimmering apartment for two with a tranquil terraced courtyard garden. Bask in the glow of this beautifully decorated home with handsome Georgian proportions and elegant period details. Surrounded by historic architecture, galleries, museums, fine restaurants and gorgeous boutiques, this wonderful apartment has the Midas touch.

The large elegant living room has lofty ceilings, ornate cornices, an antique chandelier and gorgeous muted gold papered walls. Tall sash windows with working shutters overlook the smart historic Queensbury hotel on a listed Georgian terrace complete with black iron railings and decorative balconies. Two large handsome sofas and a comfortable armchair surround a large grey marble fireplace with mirror over. There is a TV with DVD and a selection of films, books and games.

The bedroom is romantic, tranquil and similarly decorated in gold tones, with a 6'bed (which can be made up as a twin room with two 3' beds.) An antique wardrobe sits in a wide alcove with a central chest of drawers and an easy chair and iPod docking clock radio placed by the window with its sweeping drapes.

The apartment continues down three steps to a delightful curved lobby lined with bookish wallpaper, with doors into the bathroom, utility cupboard and kitchen.

The contemporary bathroom is fully tiled in travertine with a bath (with shower over), a hand basin and WC. There is a separate utility cupboard housing a combined washing machine and dryer, domestic appliances and shelf space.

The kitchen combines the old with the new, with an antique pine table and contemporary chairs to seat 4, in front of an exposed bath stone chimney breast. Surrounding this is a contemporary glossy cream and grey kitchen with a well organised array of crockery and cutlery. The kitchen provides an induction hob, an electric oven, a microwave, dishwasher, and a large Smeg fridge and small separate freezer. French doors lead out to a charming terraced courtyard garden.

The garden is a green sanctuary with bath stone walls, broad stone steps and mature trees and shrubs on 3 levels. You can hear the gentle chimes of The Christchurch on Julian Road. A store-room provides two folding outdoor chairs and a table for alfresco dining.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have a great time in Bath and the apartment was absolutely perfect! We were lucky with the weather so the garden was a plus.



The bed was extremely comfortable and the lounge a delight. It was also nice to be a short walk out from the hustle and bustle of the city but close enough to make it easy to enjoy everything. All in all a lovely stay
