About our home
If you fancy a taste of history with plenty of contemporary style our home is the place for you. Traditional Georgian house packed with features. Stone cantilevered staircase, large sunny garden, garden room with vine, renovated in 2008. We have a drive with off-street parking for several cars (a rarity in Bath). Just on the outskirts of the main city we are surrounded by heavenly countryside, with walks to canalside and riverside pubs and restaurants. You can stroll or cycle easily into the world heritage city of Bath along the bank of the Kennet and Avon canal, or take a bus from the stop one minute from our front door. Relax in the luxurious rooftop pool at the new Thermae Spa, watch the free street entertainment, or get a real taste of history strolling around the Roman Baths followed by a fantastic cream tea in the The Pump Rooms listening to a traditional string quartet. You'll love it!

Bit of culture
Holbourn Museum at the end of Great Poultney Street, not only for the art but also its amazing archtecture, plus its funky new cafe in a glass extension at the back has to be one of the best places to have lunch in the city. Also don't forget to visit the Roman Baths - torchlit on summer evenings for an amazing atmosphere -and its adjoining restaurant the Pump Rooms. Its the place for proper English cream tea and cakes accommpanied by live music everyday, plus you can try Bath's famous spa water pumped direct from the sacred spring.
Walks in the park
Victoria Park is great for a walk and it takes you right past the best view of Bath's famous Royal Crescent. For locals Parade Gardens by the river is a favourite and you can listen to the band playing while you take tea sitting in old fashioned deck chairs.
