The handsome blue and gold living room is lit up by tall sash windows overlooking the curve of The Circus and an elaborate crystal chandelier cascading from the high ceiling with its striking decorative cornicing.

Panelled alcoves house the TV with DVD and a selection of films, games, magazines and coffee table books all to hand. A pretty writing desk has Wi-Fi and an I-pod player and a dining table beside the window seats up to four.
The romantic rose covered English manor bedroom has cerise coloured curtains dramatically framing a unique glazed bay window overlooking the gardens.

The little fitted kitchen is carefully organised and well equipped, with a hob and electric oven, a microwave, and small fridge with freezer compartment. There are lots of elegant fine bone china and plenty of pretty glassware.

The West Country region
The Circus was a masterpiece of John Wood the Elder and one of the key reasons Bath was awarded the title of World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is surrounded by interesting museums and galleries, great restaurants and bars, lovely shops and boutiques. Nearby are historic sites such as The Royal Crescent, The Assembly Rooms, The Roman Baths and The Bath Abbey. St. James's Square close by has a newsagents, deli and coffee shop, organic greengrocers, chemist, florist, hairdressers and delicious pre-cooked gourmet take away meals from Cavendish Cooks. There is a range of evening entertainment at the Theatre Royal, The Komedia comedy club, The Little Theatre Cinema or pampering at the Thermae Spa. You could coordinate your visit with one of the many festivals in music, literature and food or perhaps take a hot-air balloon flight from adjacent Victoria Park.
Bath Spa train station has direct lines from London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads and is a 10-15 minute walk from the property. Alternatively a parking permit for one car is provided allowing you to park in one of the resident bays on the Circus itself or on surrounding streets.
Bath & the Best of the West!
The attractions of the World Heritage City of Bath, are well-known, but Bath is also a perfect base from which to explore the picturesque West Country of England. Located close to the M4 and M5 motorways, 1.5 hours by train from London and just over half an hour from Bristol International Airport, Bath is surrounded by several designated areas of outstanding natural beauty and many of the region's attractions can be reached within a short journey time from the city.
One firm family favourite is Longleat, owned by the Marquis of Bath and set in 900 acres of landscaped parkland. Longleat Safari Park is home to the famous Lions of Longleat and a full day of fun is guaranteed, as this attraction boasts not just the safari, but a maze, adventure park, Jungle Express and much more.
Heading slightly further west is the cathedral city of Wells with its narrow streets, abundance of historic buildings such as the moated Bishop's Palace and lively twice-weekly market. In the same direction you will find Cheddar Caves and Gorge where the world-renowned Cheddar cheese is made and the caves of Wookey Hole, home of the legendary Witch of Wookey – great for a rainy day underground adventure!
En route from Bath to Wells, you should not miss the mystical Glastonbury Tor, one of the most spiritual sites in the UK. Steeped in history and legend, the climb to the top is well worth the effort for the views across the Somerset Levels.
World famous Glastonbury Festival needs little introduction, however, it's always worth checking out what's on at The Royal Bath & West Showground on the outskirts of Shepton Mallet which hosts anything from antiques fairs to The Royal Bath & West Show.
To the south east of Bath lies Stonehenge, a majestic stone circle that has been the subject of much speculation ranging from how it was built to ceremonial significance. Audio tours are available on entry and it retains its magic whatever the season, but particularly around the summer and winter solstices. Around 25 miles away is Avebury, considered by many to be the most impressive of all remaining pre-historic earthworks in Europe.
For outdoor enthusiasts there is a wealth of walks, cycle rides and boating opportunities with cycle and canoe hire readily available. Bath is an ideal base for sporting aficionados, whether as spectators or participants when attending events such as rugby or football matches, Badminton Horse Trials, Castle Combe Circuit or perhaps taking a trip down to the coast where you will find Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, where the sailing events for the 2012 Olympics were held.
Last but by no means least, neighbouring Bristol with its iconic suspension bridge, floating harbour, SS Great Britain, vibrant street life and home to famous street artist, Banksy, should not be missed.
Whatever your taste, stay with Bath Holiday Rentals and our helpful, knowledgeable staff will assist you in planning your perfect stay in the West Country.
