Holiday Rental House
The Old Workshop is a luxury two bed cottage in a private courtyard on the edge of Bath. As the other four properties in our courtyard, (see below), the Old Workshop is finished to a very high standard and achieved a 'Gold' award from 'Visit Britain', the UK's official tourism authority. It's ideal for a romantic get-away, a relaxing break or a base for all the many sights of the area. The accommodation is flexible, so the property is suitable and cost effective for between one and four people. The Old Workshop has views at the rear of the river Avon and beyond, (depending on time of year) underfloor heating, luxury oak painted kitchen, an ensuite shower room and main shower room. You can walk to the river Avon and a super riverside pub from where you can take a beautiful boat trip into ...The Old Workshop is a luxury two bed cottage in a private courtyard on the edge of Bath.

You can walk to the river Avon and a super riverside pub from where you can take a beautiful boat trip into the City of Bath. The surrounding countryside is easily accessed, by car, public transport, bike or on foot. There is a bus stop on the High Street outside the courtyard, so you don't even need a car. The testimonials for the Old Workshop speak for themselves. Tastefully furnished and finished, with super comfortable beds and many thoughtful touches which will help you to feel at home and make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. This is one of four holiday let properties in our courtyard in Batheaston, just on the edge and ten minutes drive from the City of Bath. We also have the luxurious four bed 'Mulsanne House' (274673) plus the Saltings one bed, and next door to the Old Workshop, the 'Coach House' (461116), a similar two bed property. On the High Street, just 30 seconds walk, is the Old Sweet Shop, (9140042) sleeping 5. Please enquire for details. So, in total, we can cater for up to 23. The Old Workshop has a Tesla charging point. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 617701More

Additional amenities & feature info
The Old Workshop has been set up to maximise the views over the beautiful Bathampton meadows at the rear, so the lounge/kitchen/dining area is on the top floor and the two bedrooms on the ground floor. The fresh air ventilation and heat recovery system, coupled with luxurious underfloor heating, means you should enjoy perfect temperatures all year round. Much use has been made of natural materials, so you will find lots of oak throughout the property, including the kitchen cabinets, which have been painted in one of our favourite Farrow and Ball colours. The lounge area has two Chesterfield 2 seater leather sofas in which you can just sit and enjoy the view or take in some DVDs or your favourite music from the docking station. The kitchen area, with its Bosch oven and hob is designed to be efficient as well as aesthetically pleasing and you will find all the equipment you might need, whether you just want to boil an egg or whistle up a gastronomic delight! The bedrooms can be configured to suit your requirements. A couple will be allocated the en-suite room at the rear with 'Super King' size double bed. It's not only super king, but also 6' 6' long! We don't think you will find a bigger or more comfortable bed in a holiday let. For three or more, the second bathroom will be available and the bedrooms made up with either two single beds or a 'Super King' size - it's up to you. Either way, all the linen is Egyptian cotton, helping to ensure you have an indulgent night's sleep. Both compact bathrooms are to a high standard, so you can enjoy unlimited amounts of hot water and the best, soft, Turkish cotton towels, plus the luxury of warm tiles underfoot.

About the neighbourhood
Bath has served as the pleasure drome of the UK for over 2000 years and there are few places which can even begin to equal it's unique combination of history, architecture, shopping and gastronomy. Bath is a World Heritage tourist destination, its history dating back to pre Roman times. It is acknowledged as the second most popular tourist destination in England. Renowned Georgian architecture rivalling that of Paris, Venice or Rome has been enhanced in recent years with the addition of the £45+million Thermae Bath Spa, Britain's only natural thermal spa, featuring the natural mineral waters which first attracted the Romans, who named Bath, Aquae Sulis. The spaoffers every kind of luxury pampering experience, including the open air roof top hot bath, which is not to be missed. But it's ...
Getting around
We are very lucky to have excellent transport links of all kinds, especially the bus stop on the road outsidse the courtyard. Guests find this the most convenient way to access the City, bypassing much of the trafiic with bus lanes. On average it takes about 10 minutes to the City. Most guests leave their cars in our car park and use the bus for the duration of their stay. But perhaps the most popular way to access the City is by water! Just 10 minutes walk from the property is the Bathampton Mill where you may catch one of a number of river buses into the City from March to Oct. It is a beautiful way to see Bath from another angle. Return to Batheaston by bus. For those arriving by train, a taxi will bring you to us for less than £10
