Newly opened and furnished in January 2013 and awarded 4 star Gold rating by Visit England, this luxurious ground floor apartment has its own front door leading from a small private patio into the spacious open plan living room and kitchen/dining area. Furnished with plush leather sofas and oak furniture and equipped with TV, DVD player, Ipod dock and DAB radio, the living room is a lovely space for relaxing after a day visiting the sights and shops of Bath.

The contemporary kitchen has granite worksurfaces and fitted appliances, including a full-size dishwasher, fridge, freezer and clothes washer/dryer. You will also find a 'Tassimo' coffee machine (we leave you a few coffee pods to get you started) and a full range of china and glassware (including a few champagne glasses for any celebrations you might be planning!).

Both restful bedrooms have luxurious beds with crisp cotton bed linens from The White Company and plenty of pillows and cushions. The large main bedroom has a 6 ft bed which can be separated into twins, Shaker style wooden furniture, a built-in wardrobe and a TV opposite the bed. The en-suite shower room has a spacious shower and a heated towel rail laden with fluffy White Company towels.

The second bedroom is smaller but has a 5 ft king size bed which can also be separated into twins, a built-in wardrobe and a chest of drawers. This bedroom has a wall-mounted TV.

The family bathroom has a full-size bath with a shower over and a glass shower screen. As in the en-suite, there is a heated towel rail with the same fluffy towels.

Herschel Place is in the Bath Conservation Area and was carefully designed and built in 2008 to continue the line of the original Georgian terrace. All the characteristic architectural features of the Georgian terrace have been meticulously reproduced on the façade of the building but the development has the advantage of modern building techniques with insulation, draft-proofing and double glazing – a distinctly un-Georgian heating system keeps the apartment cosy all year round!

Free wi-fi can be accessed throughout the apartment.

Outside the front door of the apartment there is a small, gated patio area with table and chairs and an allocated, off-road parking space (a rarity for central Bath, a city where the roads were built for horses, rather than cars!).

Once you arrive at Herschel Place, a car is no longer needed as the heart of the city is on your doorstep. A level stroll of less than 10 minutes takes you past Georgian terraces, onto Pulteney Bridge and the centre of the city with its world famous sights and shops.

Even closer to the apartment are the beautiful Holburne Museum, Sydney Gardens and access to the towpath for the Kennet and Avon canal.

Bath has countless restaurants and cafes to suit every taste and many are only a short stroll away. Food shopping is also easy, with an excellent Waitrose nearby and several other supermarkets at a short distance. A small convenience store and a good café are less than 100 metres away.

In Number 3 we have tried to create a warm and welcoming apartment which will give you the space, freedom and all the comforts needed for an enjoyable and relaxing visit to one of Britain's most beautiful and interesting cities. We hope you will enjoy your time in our lovely city as much as we do!

About this location

The Somerset region

This lovely region of England has beautiful countryside, world-famous sights, thriving cities and quaint honey coloured stone villages. The scenery is a delight, with gently rolling hills and lush valleys, canals and winding rivers.

If you enjoy spending time outdoors, this is a great area for walking, cycling and simply enjoying the fresh air and views. For something a bit different, you can rent a canal boat for the day or just take a boat trip on the river.

Just a short distance from Bath takes you to any number of fascinating sights – the prehistoric monuments at Stonehenge and Avebury; National Trust houses including Stourhead with its Palladian mansion and famous gardens and Lacock Abbey (one of the settings for the Harry Potter films); Longleat House and safari park; Wookey Hole caves and Cheddar Gorge,… Bristol is only 15 minutes away by train (30 mins by car) and Salisbury and Cardiff are an hour’s drive.

Central Bath

Bath really does have something for everyone, from beautiful architecture to tempting independent shops, world-famous sights, elegant gardens for relaxing and spacious parks where children can let off steam.

There are numerous cultural festivals that attract world-class performers, including the famous Bath International Music Festival and an excellent theatre where you can see productions before they transfer to the West End.

The welcoming family atmosphere of Bath Rugby will appeal to anyone who likes sport. There is horse racing at Bath Racecourse, car and motorcycle racing at Castle Combe and numerous golf clubs, both in and just outside Bath. For walkers or cyclists, there are endless beautiful routes to take, many of which start from the apartment(to the rear of the apartment is a private lockable storage room which is ideal for safe storage of bikes and muddy boots). Other activities include cookery schools, glass blowing, chocolate making, etc., etc.....

Of course, Bath is famous for its Roman Baths and you can now bathe in Britain's only natural thermal spa at Thermae Bath Spa.

Shopping here is a pleasure - Bath is great for a spot of retail therapy!

In short, there is lots to choose from!

"Charming Appartment and lots of help planning the trip from Alison."

2 twin bedded rooms can be hard to come by so that was one of the reasons we chose this appartment. It all turned out to be perfect - so comfortable. Alisonn ordered in food for us the first night and… More

Thank you for your kind comments - I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay. It's also good to hear that you enjoyed the Cavendish Cooks dinners - the meals are prepared by two local cordon bleu cooks and are really convenient if you don't want to go out or cook yourself. They are a popular local 'secret'! I hope to welcome you back to Bath again.

"A wonderful week!"

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days to revisit our beloved Bath and enjoy the Christmas Market. Everything here that you could possibly need. Decor and furnishings of a very high standard. Must menti… More

I am delighted you thought the bed in the main bedroom was so comfortable - thank you for saying so! In fact, the beds in both bedrooms are exactly the same quality, although the second bedroom has a king bed, rather than a superking. It is particularly good to hear regular Bath visitors making such complimentary remarks about our apartment - thank you! I hope to see you again in Bath.

"A lovely quiet spot"

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Number 3. Alison made us feel very welcome and the apartment is very well appointed. Near enough to easily walk into the centre but far enough away to escape the mayh… More

I am very pleased you found Number3 a relaxing 'home' for your weekend - thank you for your kind comments. The Christmas Market is very popular and has a lovely atmosphere. It's a great spot for finding some unusual Christmas presents and enjoying a glass of mulled wine or cup of hot chocolate but it's always nice to put your feet up afterwards!

"A happy birthday weekend in Bath"

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments! I am very pleased you enjoyed your weekend and chose Number3 for your celebration. I hope you will come again with your husband (more homemade bread a promise!) and look forward to meeting you again then.

Excellent apartment, totally spotless and an easy walk into the city centre. Nothing was too much trouble for Alison and we were made to feel very welcome.There is so much to see and do in Bath so I … More

It was lovely to meet you all and I am very pleased that you enjoyed yourselves. I agree that the rooftop pool at the Spa is a delight and is a great way to relax (next time you might like to try the Cross Bath which is the oldest part of the Spa, just across the street from the main Spa building - different and also lovely). I hope to see you all in Bath again soon!
