General overview

We live in a 4 bedroom traditional victorian era family home, walking distance to the historic centre of Bath. The city known for its Georgian architecture, with Royal Crescent, Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths, can all be reached within 30 minutes walk or a 10 minute bus ride. Royal Victoria park is a 15 minute walk away, which has botanical gardens and an excellent children's playground. The cities Bristol and London are near enough for a day trip by train. There is a direct bus to Bristol airport which takes under an hour. There are many national trust properties within an hours drive such as Dyrham park, Stourhead, Lacock and Tyntesfield. There is easy access to beautiful surrounding countryside for those who enjoy the great outdoors.

The space

We have 3 large bedrooms, 2 of which have king size beds. Another large bedroom is suitable for children and we use our fourth bedroom as an office. Extensive renovations have been ongoing since we moved in 2019, and we've now completed the two bathrooms, second bedroom and a kitchen diner. Downstairs also has a large living room and children's playroom. We have a back garden with two large fig trees and outside dining area for the warmer months.

Guest access

2 floors with staircase between them. One small step up to the house which we manage with a pushchair.

Notes

Fans of Jane Austen will have read about Bath in Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, and can visit a museum about the author. Bath is featured regularly as a setting for period dramas, most recently the Netflix hit series Bridgerton.
