The entrance hall leads you into a Georgian Town house which so epitomizes a past era of style and elegance. Built as a lodging house for Bath's grand era of prosperity, the house has seen many changes of owners over the years. But now with careful and loving restoration, it still retains and reflects that period of gracious living.
A Golden Urn on its Corinthian column, bathed in sunlight reminds us of Bath's Roman past - the golden city of Aquæ Sulis. A pair of elegant chaise-longues provide a delightful seating area for you to relax and enjoy the classic style.
And over all this a portrait of a past lady watches the ever changing scene...
Every room in the house was for a different use and so all have their own individual style and character. The smaller rooms tend to be over the garden side. The large reception rooms are at the front of the house and are now the Superior Double rooms. However, with all the rooms, the emphasis is always on quality and comfort.
En-suite Superior Double rooms on the front of the house, originally the reception rooms, with high ceilings, fine plasterwork, double windows with heavy drapes, canopied UK king size beds, comfortable armchairs and writing desk.
En-suite Double rooms, mainly on the garden side of the house with UK double bed, located on ground, first and third floors - please advise if stairs are a problem.
En-suite room with 2 single beds on the second floor overlooking the garden.
Large en-suite room with UK double bed and single bed on the second floor at the front of the house.
Two single rooms sharing shower and toilet located at the front of the house on the first and second floor (bathroom on landing in between). Bathrobes and slippers provided.
