Holiday Rental House
In an idyllic location, this recently renovated house at the end of a short steep flag-stoned path has rewarding views of the spire of St. Matthews church, the city and surrounding countryside. There are great local facilities, and it's less than a 10 minute walk to the city centre and Bath Spa railway station, with frequent connections to London Paddington and Bristol Temple meads. The ground floor has a smart and spacious open-plan kitchen and diner that can become a cosy retreat. Centrally placed in the period kitchen with granite work surfaces, is a large range style cooker with a 5 ring gas hob, 2 ovens and a grill. Appliances include a microwave, small dishwasher, small fridge and separate freezer and plenty of china in plate racks. In the middle section of the room is a wood-burning...In an idyllic location, this recently renovated house at the end of a short steep flag-stoned path has rewarding views of the spire of St. Matthews church, the city and surrounding countryside.

Appliances include a microwave, small dishwasher, small fridge and separate freezer and plenty of china in plate racks. In the middle section of the room is a wood-burning stove set in a handsome bath stone fireplace with a basket of logs, a large leather sofa and small TV. At the far end, in a pretty square bay with decorative stained glass, is a contemporary oak dining table to seat 8. The dining area looks onto a pretty paved front terrace with a bench and outdoor table and chairs for 4. A linear tiled cloakroom with WC and sink set into a wood worktop doubles as a utility with a washing machine and separate dryer. Behind the kitchen is a pretty little study with a small desk and chair along with a well-padded decorative iron bench. Outside is an attractive raised courtyard with lovely views over the city. There is a pretty table and four chairs, two sun loungers and a gas BBQ ready to fire up. The original stone staircase has a smart grey runner leading up to a large contemporary shower room on a half-landing Tiled in smooth creamy travertine throughout, it has a large walk-in shower, double hand-basins and a WC in a separate alcove. On the first floor is an inviting living room in rich warm browns, cream and silver with original cornicing and working shutters - a feature throughout the house. At one end is a handsome decorative bath stone fireplace with mirrors reflecting pretty hanging chandeliers. Choose between a large 3-seater sofa, 3 armchairs, a contemporary chaise longue or a vast leather beanbag. On a wood cabinet is a TV with DVD and Sky satellite along with a selection of films. Also on the first floor is a pretty bedroom with a 5' bed, dressing table and decorative stool. Two built-in alcove cupboards provide hanging space and storage. On the second floor is a large light and airy cream master bedroom with gorgeous green vistas. A comfortable super king 6' bed has alcoves either side with a selection of novels. A wardrobe provides hanging space with a small chest for storage. There is a small TV with DVD. With stunning views overlooking the Abbey and City centre, is an indulgent bathroom with a gorgeous egg-shaped free-standing bath tub. It is tiled throughout in smooth creamy travertine with a lovely decorative fireplace adding to the ambience. Add to this a large walk-in shower, double hand basins and WC for complete luxury. Finally, a pretty twin room has two 3' beds (which can be zipped together to make a superking bed) and a shelved alcove full of books. A fitted cupboard has lots of shelf space and there is a further cupboard on the landing with plenty of hanging space.More

This house was great for our weekend away. Really close to the city centre, which has so much to offer. Everything in the house was of very good standard and the welcome pack was a nice addition. The house is in a lovely quiet area,...More

This house was perfect for our girls weekend away. The upstairs lounge and bedrooms were beautifully decorated and we loved making use of the outside terrace in the sunshine. Only a short walk away from bath city centre so perfectly located. Would definitely stay here...More

Perfect house! Fabulous location just a few minutes from the center of town yet cozy on a hill behind town. Beautifully remodeled with gobs of room, crisp linens, a beautifully equipped kitchen and adorable outdoor terraces. Spa like bathrooms, laundry and cable tv. I only...More

A nice welcome pack. Beautiful views. Socialable space - ideal for spending time with family/friends. Much closer to the city center than the map suggested with the train station being a 10 minute walk with luggage. Very steep access will make it unsuitable for some.
