Holiday Rental House
The house is spread over 2 floors and entrance into the property can be either through the ground floor next to the private parking, or up through the garden to the main living area comprising the ensuite bedrooms, kitchen, dining and lounge. The house is located off Lyncombe Hill, one of the 7 hills that form the little city of Bath, and is a 15 minute walk down into the centre of town or about a £6 taxi ride. The main entrance on the first floor leads you into a wide hallway off which both of the bedrooms can be found. The master bedroom on your right has a superking 6 foot bed, a large chest of drawers, a triple wardrobe and a small sofa to snuggle up on with your favourite book. There are patio doors off the bedroom leading to the back garden or to the decking off the lounge.

The house is located off Lyncombe Hill, one of the 7 hills that form the little city of Bath, and is a 15 minute walk down into the centre of town or about a £6 taxi ride. The main entrance on the first floor leads you into a wide hallway off which both of the bedrooms can be found. The master bedroom on your right has a superking 6 foot bed, a large chest of drawers, a triple wardrobe and a small sofa to snuggle up on with your favourite book. There are patio doors off the bedroom leading to the back garden or to the decking off the lounge. There is an ensuite bathroom with sink, w.c. and beautifully tiled walk in shower. The 2nd bedroom on the left of the hallway has 2 single beds which can zip together to make a 6 foot superking bed, a chest of drawers and wardrobe. There is a door leading to a large bathroom with sink, w.c. bathtub and separate shower. This bathroom is a jack and jill bathroom meaning there is also a door off the hallway to it. Therefore it can be used as a private ensuite to bedroom 2 or as a family bathroom. Carry further down the hallway and the property opens up to the open plan lounge and dining area designed with solid wood flooring throughout and floor to ceilings windows which open up completely to show off the stunning views of the gardens and beautiful hillside. A wrap around decking with table and 6 chairs and a 2 seater bench are perfect for al fresco dining or for just simply taking in that stunning view. The lounge has two 3 seater sofas, a wall mounted gas fireplace and extra casual chairs are dotted around allowing you to take in the view from different areas. A floor to ceiling bookshelf is filled with books and decorative pieces. There is a large flat screen freesat TV with Netflix, and all catch up channels, a DVD, Wifi, and a Bluetooth sound system. The dining table, cleverly positioned to allow you to dine with a view, is extendable and has 6 chairs. The kitchen adjoins the dining area and is fully stocked with everything you will need to prepare a lovely meal. There is a single electric oven and hob, microwave, fully stocked cupboards and plenty of windows so you don't ever have to miss out on that view. A contemporary wooden and glass staircase leads you down to the ground floor where you will find a table and chairs, additional seating, a desk, large chest of drawers and a trundle daybed. There is a shower room with sink, w.c. and shower and a separate utility room with extra hanging space, and washing machine with combination dryer. The property comes equipped with everything you will need including toiletries, linens and towels, stock items and a welcome hamper for your arrival. As with all of our properties it is strictly non smoking in the property. The property has the rare advantage of private parking within the grounds of the house. There would be room to park 3 or 4 cars. SPECIAL NOTE: Parties/Hen Parties: As the house is located in a quiet residential area, the Owners of the Looking Glass House do not want parties to be held or what is generally thought of as 'Hen Parties' in this house. Dinner parties for those occupying the house are of course no problem. If you think you may be too high-spirited for the Looking Glass House, another choice might be preferable. SPECIAL NOTE: Children: The Owners are happy to have children in the property but want you to be aware there are no stair gates and the property has a lot of glass and sharp edges with an open tread staircase, so you will need to determine if the property would be suitable for your children.More

If there were two things that made it inevitable that we'd come back to The Looking Glass House they were the views and the house itself. Bath centre is walkable in 10-15min but far enough to get some peace and quite. There are restaurants in...More

The first thing you notice as you approach the Looking Glass House is the number of windows. It's only in daylight you realise why - the view is great. That having been said the house itself is amazing. All the main living space is on...More
