Marae is conveniently located near Bath City Centre, whilst offering a peaceful and tranquil retreat. A beautiful bungalow built from Bath stone, with all the appliances and facilities we have come to expect for modern living, plus a few extra luxuries - such as a massage chair, air conditioning and gym equipment.
The bungalow is located down its own drive and away from any of the surrounding roads and traffic, offering privacy and quiet. The garden is south-facing, with picturesque views over western Bath - making it the perfect place for sunny al-fresco dining and BBQs.
Marae offers four beautifully furnished and spacious bedrooms, including two with en-suite facilities. The property can accommodate eight people comfortably, with a king-sized bed, two doubles and a twin bedroom. For added flexibility, there is also a sofa bed in the light, airy lounge and extra bedding or a travel cot can be provided, on request.
Marae boasts a well-equipped kitchen - perfect for aspiring chefs. Out-of-doors, BBQ facilities are provided and should the weather prove to be changeable, an indoor table-top Korean BBQ is also available. Some basic gym equipment, including a cross-trainer and weights bench, are provided in the annex.
There is ample parking space available for three cars, as well as off-street parking on the main road.
Marae is a short walk into Bath City Centre, taking you through beautiful Royal Victoria Park and via many of Bath's famous landmarks, including the Royal Crescent, the Circus and the Assembly Rooms. The close proximity to the children's park is also a huge advantage to families with young children.
We offer spa packages at the Bath Thermae Spa, giving our guests a 10% discount if booked through us. Additionally, we offer afternoon tea packages, which are privately catered at Marae. Or why not take advantage of both, and combine the two? For more details, please enquire with us directly.

"Excellent and great value"
Stayed for a hen party and was thrilled at the space and quality on arrival. Was concerned before we arrived that it may have been to far from the shops but it was in fact just a beautiful walk through the park away. Fantastic time and great facilities in the house

"If you've booked Marae, the hard work is over!"
I found Marae after an extensive property search involving a number of double bookings/last minute cancellations for my sister-in-laws hen do weekend in Bath. However, the phrase "everything happens for a reason" certainly applied to this booking as Marae turned out to be an absolute gem! Not only is this rental significantly greater value for money than many of the over-priced properties located in Bath, but Marae is a house which offers both high quality accommodation and an owner with an excellent standard of customer service. The L-shaped open plan layout was perfect for our large group and we had use of every facility that we could have hoped for...including a massage chair none the less! All four bedrooms offer a comfortable nights sleep (as do the large sofas + extra bedding). The welcome pack included not only tea/coffee/milk but also a delicious cake. The location of Marae is also great as it is an easy downhill walk to the city centre (about a mile) yet the property is far enough out that it comes with a good sized garden...a garden equipped with a large table, BBQ and gym! It's worth noting that the sign for the property (located ON Weston Road as written elsewhere in the reviews for Marae) is quite small and the driveway you turn onto from the road first passes to the left of a large property located in front of the bungalow which is Marae. We managed to find our way back to the house on a number of occasions using the block of flats directly opposite the turning for Marae as our landmark! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Marae to anyone looking for a place to stay in Bath!

"Comfort with Value for Money"
Everyone enjoyed their stay. Facilities were even better than expected and provided very good value for money. All our planning queries answered quickly and efficiently by owner. Highly recommended.

"Amazing spacious well equipped holiday letting"
The welcome to Marae was warm and friendly with frequent updates from the owner prior to arrival. We were provided detailed maps on how to get to the property although did have a very minor challenge finding the driveway entrance.
The size and layout of Marae is perfect for a large group or family with a number of separate rooms and bathrooms ensuring that there is always personal space available.
The main room was fantastic with a number of comfy sofas, large screen TV, HiFi and best of all a massage chair which has a little magician hidden somewhere inside it.
The garden area is perfect for a barbeque ( albeit the weather prevented us from making use of this ) and there is a large outdoor table provided.

"Our stay was faultless!"
Very comfortable, good value, well kept. Good location. Scenic walk into town. Owners were attentive and helpful. Highly recommended. We traveled with a young baby and found it very comfortable. Travel cot was also provided.
Thank you for coming to stay! It is our first year setting up Marae as a holiday let and we are hoping to make the holiday home as good for families with young children as well for adults to enjoy.
