About This Listing
Our house is a 5 bedroom Victorian semi detached house. It's in a quiet residential area of Bath with a suburban feel. It is a 15 to 20 minute walk to and from the city centre. It is down hill into town and a steep uphill coming home.
This is a small double room with a small double bed (1.4m wide). It is next door to its own bathroom, so it is like your own en-suite when you stay in this room.
Guests have access to their room and bathroom as well as having full use of the kitchen if required at any time. Feel free to help yourself to tea/coffee at any time and make full use of the kitchen if you like. There will be tea and coffee in your room also.
A cold buffet breakfast will be laid out for you in the kitchen in the morning to which you help yourselves. You can take this back to your room if you prefer - which is what we tend to do (being the lazy sort of people we are in the mornings!!)
Interaction with Guests
You will be sharing the house with just the two owners and possibly two other guests in the other room if we have booked that room as well.
We tend to give our guests as much privacy as possible but are normally available for advice or a chat if required. We seem to see our guests mostly around breakfast time.
On the Bear Flat at the top of our road is a decent pub and few small shops take-aways and restaurants. Included among these is "Rolfy's" which is an antique/bric-a-brac shop which is difficult to walk past without getting drawn in at least for a browse.
There is easy walking access to the city centre. It is a 15 to 20 minute walk to and from the city centre. It is down hill into town and uphill (steep but scenic) coming home.
There is free unrestricted parking in our road. You can normally park within 50m of our house.
There are two buses that pass the end of our road from the city centre (13 & 14). Take the 13 in the Foxhill direction or the 14 in the Odd Down direction. You get off at the "Bear Flat" stop (which the driver will know).
Taxis to and from the city centre are about £6 to £7
Other Things to Note
We provide towels and toiletries.
There is a hair dryer in the room.
We have (fibre) wireless internet you can use.
There is also a small garden where you can sit out (if we ever get the weather for it).
We may be able to pick guests up from Heathrow or Bristol AIrport by prior arrangement. This would have to be agreed after/during the booking process.
None except be nice, be happy, enjoy. :)
Alan and Chris were great hosts . They made us feel very welcome and were very helpful. The house was in a great location and within walking distance of town and close to public transport if you didn't want to walk.
Alan was very welcoming and flexible with our check-in/check-out arrangements. He provided a wonderful breakfast spread, too!
Only stayed for one night so we didn't have much interaction with Alan but he seemed very friendly and reliable. The house is absolutely beautiful and the room with an ensuite bathroom is very clean and nicely decorated with everything the guests may require from toiletries to wifi and tv. Very pleasant stay.
It was an excellent stay, well prepared room, basically everything was in order. For the price I paid, i felt it was absolutely worth it. Will definitely book this place if I ever visit Bath again.
