Description

In a winsome 17th century Georgian terrace nestled in a quiet country lane is a romantic little hideaway for 4 (and up to 5 with sofa bed). Picturesque country walks following in the footsteps of Jane Austen offer sweeping views of the city in one direction and a 10-15 minute walk to Bath's city centre (with Bath Spa train station en-route) in the other. From here you could see and enjoy Bath in a whole new light.

This adorable cottage style home is on 4 levels with a cosy living room on the ground floor, a couple of steep winding staircases up to the bedrooms and steps down to the kitchen, and a typical terraced garden, filled with varied planting, slopes down the hill.. Situated in Widcombe on the southern slopes of the city there is plenty to explore, on local footpaths that encircle the city below and in the city itself. The sweet church of St.Thomas a Becket, beautiful Widcombe Manor and the National trust owned Prior Park is close by.

Situated in Widcombe on the southern slopes of the city there is plenty to explore, on local footpaths that encircle the city below and in the city itself. The sweet church of St.Thomas a Becket, beautiful Widcombe Manor and the National trust owned Prior Park is close by.

A charming living room with original stone mullioned windows, oak ceiling beam and smooth oak floors has two sofas either side of a little coal effect, gas burning stove. A traditional button backed sofa seats 2 and a small sofa-bed opposite seats 2-3. Large shelved alcoves hold a small TV, DVD and i-pod player/radio, along with a generous pile of books, games, music CD's and films.

Steps lead down to a sociable and sunny traditional style cream fitted kitchen with black granite tops and oak flooring. Added sparkle comes from mosaic mirrored tiling. The kitchen has a small oven/grill and a second larger oven, a microwave, a large fridge and separate freezer, a small dishwasher, and a washing machine. A large oak and iron dining table to seat 6 is opposite French doors leading into the garden.

Outside, a small sun terrace has 4 iron chairs and a table for 4. There are lovely views of Lyncombe Hill and pretty terraced gardens either side. Steps lead down through shrubs and trees to another small seating area with 2 chairs and side table. At the end of the path is a small shaded bench.

On a half-landing between the Living room and kitchen is a pretty period style shower room with a large tiled shower, hand-basin with storage under and mirrored cabinet over and a WC.

Steep winding stairs lead to the bedrooms on the first and second floors. The first elegant double bedroom has windows to the front and back with working cream shutters, a sweet 4'7''double bed, decorative fireplace, fitted wardrobe and a dainty chest of drawers. This level also has a small period style shower room with shower, hand-basin with storage and WC.

Another swirl of steps brings you into a delightful twin room with two single brass beds, chest of drawers, fitted wardrobe and pretty shuttered windows with lush views of the hills, bath stone houses, mature trees and a tumble of surrounding gardens.

Location description from manager

The England region

If you want to take a break from the city, there is much to explore from the house. Close by is the tiny and atmospheric church of St Thomas a Becket built between 1490 and 1498 over a Norman church with even older Saxon origins. This tiny settlement was mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086. Farther along is Widcombe Manor a fabulous grade 1 listed private manor built in 1656, visited by the rich and famous. Nearby is the National Trust owned Prior Park Gardens with a Palladian bridge created in the 18th century by local architect and entrepreneur Ralph Allen with advice from Capability Brown and the poet Alexander Pope. There are fabulous views of Bath and a five-minute walk leads to the Bath Skyline, a six mile circular route encompassing pretty woodlands and meadows, an Iron Age hill fort, Roman settlements, 18th century follies and spectacular views.

The local facilities in Widcombe Parade are very good and include a newsagent, chemist, a couple of coffee shops, hairdressers, florists, and several pubs, restaurants and Indian, Chinese and American takeaways. The nearest supermarket is Sainsbury`s. Nearby Prior Park Garden Centre is great for lunch as well as having a deli, pets, plants cards and gifts. The City has many historic sites and museums and galleries, as well as great shops, bars and restaurants. Bath Narrow boats rent barges and bikes to explore the city or the Kennet and Avon canal and towpath. After all the activity, pamper yourselves in the piping hot pools of the Thermae Spa, or enjoy a night at The Theatre Royal or Komedia Comedy Club.

Central Bath

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.
