This beautiful 17th Century apartment in a grade two listed building is located right in the centre of town. You really couldn't be more central to all of the amenities that this lovely town has to offer. The spacious and airy apartment has one bedroom with separate dressing room and a stunning living room with views over the town to the front, and to the cafes on the square at the rear. The open plan kitchen is newly refurbished and has everything you need for your stay. We believe a good night's sleep is the most important thing during your holiday so the bedroom has been equipped with Laura Ashley Egyptian cotton sheets, the finest quality pillows and towels to create that little bit of luxury. There is also a day bed in the living room which converts into a large double bed if there are four people staying. The apartment just oozes charm and with its old beams, sash windows and original features you won't be disappointed. Bradford-on-Avon is a real gem and will easily provide all that you need for your stay but at just 15 minutes on the train from Bath you will be spoilt for choice of places to visit. The welcome pack and information box in the flat will provide plenty of inspiration for your stay but should you need more, I'll always be happy to help.
** Please note, given the apartment's position in town we do ask our guests to be respectful of the other residents in the building. So if you area looking for a party venue sadly that isn't us! Downtown is more suited for couples or families. **

The Bath / Bradford on Avon area
There is no denying that Bath is firmly on the tourist map and for very good reason. Visit the Bath Tourist information website for all the info, I wouldn't want to miss anything out! Bradford on Avon boasts an impressive 17 pubs and restaurants, all of which offer more variety than you'll ever need. The town is often referred to as a miniature Bath as it is set on hills and is built of honey coloured stone.
From great pub food in the Castle or the Dandy Lion to a locally favoured Thai restaurant and on a special occasion, the fine dining restaurant 'The Gables'. It is a delightful town which still has market day every week. The Bridge Tearooms have a reputation for transporting guests to a bygone era and serve wonderful old fashioned cakes, teabreads and crumpets with pots of real leaf tea and tea strainer!
There are a wealth of rural walks along the river or canal and why not walk along to the hamlet of Freshford if the weather is fine. As a Fair Trade town we enjoy responsible shopping where the independant shopper is still king.
