You will be abslutely spoiled for choice as to what activities you can do in Bath and all within easy reach of the apartment.

The apartments driveway is located directly opposite one of the entrances to the beautiful Royal Victoria Park and Botanical Gardens. The Botanical Gardens contain a huge selection of some of the most beautiful species of trees and flowers found from around the world and is a wonderful place to just sit and relax and admire. Within Victoria Park you will find many different areas in which to either relax or play, including a spectacular childrens play area containing zip wires, assault courses, a carousel, swings, slides, a large sandpit with sit on diggers and a skate park; in fact something for every age group. Refreshments are available on site. There is a large duck pond where you can feed the swans and ducks or wide opens spaces where you can sit and picnic in or just sit and take in the magnificent scenery. Hot air balloons take off nearly every weekend in good weather and funfairs, steam fairs and circuses visit throughout the year. In the winter months there's an ice skating rink and plenty of other activities to keep you entertained.

Within a 5 minute walk of the apartment, you'll find award winning restaurants and pubs and a 10-15 minute walk through the lovely park will take you directly into the centre of Bath where you will find the Roman Baths and Pumprooms, numerous shops, bars, restaurants, clubs, theatres and two cinemas. Or you can catch an opentop bus very near the apartment that will show you the whole of Bath and its surrounding area.

There's also plenty to do if you're sporty. As well as horseriding and cycle tracks (you can hire bicycles in town), there are tennis courts and golf courses within a 5-10 minute walk and within a 20 minute walk you can watch cricket, rugby or football being played at different times of the year. There are also numerous watersports available to either watch or participate in on the River Avon, including canoeing and rowing (where some of our Olympic Gold medalists trained) and boating. At various times thoughout the year you can also watch horse racing at Bath racecourse, also a short drive away.

"Heaven in Bath"

Ms. Fozzard is an excellent hostess, the apartment was in perfect condition. With four persons there was plenty of spaces and the site and the views were very nice. The kitchen is well equipped and all the rooms (except the bathroom) have a window to let in the sunshine. Hot water and heating are not a problem. The apartment is well located, you can walk to see all the beauties that Bath has to offer. There's even the Royal Victoria Park across the streeth, no excuse not to walk through it. We also did daily excursions like Cardiff in Whales, Bristol, Cheddar Gorge, Salisbury, Wells, Stonehenge, Beaulieu, Purbeck Island.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much and I hope to see you again in the not too distant future. Kind regards and best wishes.

"Fantastic apartment with everything you could need"

A beautifully furnished apartment in a great location on the edge of the lovely Royal Victoria Park. We stayed for a long weekend and even though there's plenty to see in the city we were in no rush to leave each morning as the apartment is so comfortable. Angela has provided everything you could need - this was the best equipped place we have stayed in many years - and could not have been more helpful. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm delighted you enjoyed it so much and I really hope you come and stay again soon. It was a real pleasure meeting you. Kind regards and very best wishes. Angela

"Excellent apartment - We have been first guests and we highly recommend it"

We have been first guests of this apartment and experience has been excellent. Angela has a great, peaceful and beautiful apartment very well located with a nice walking to the centre. She made our experience excellent and had house full of details that made us to feel like at home (thanks for the Ferrero Roche). Apartment has also private parking that is highly recommended in Bath. Views are excellent, very close to a park so if you have kids they will enjoy that.

I highly recommend this apartment as per our experience.

Thank you very much for your lovely review. I hope you come back again soon.

Kind regards and best wishes.
