Delightful contemporary space ideal for two. Enjoy a 15 min walk into the centre along the river path/cycleway and return through Victoria Park. Local deli and gastro pubs closeby.
** NB No blinds on skylights **
Contemporary, independent studio with private access and courtyard. Sole use of facilities including, hob, microwave, fridge, kitchen sink and en-suite shower and wc. Fluffy white towels, welcome pack / breakfast basket included in rental: tea, coffee, milk, sugar, biscuits, OJ, croissants and jam.
If you are travelling with a young infant the studio also has space for a travel cot.
The studio does have two skylights which are uncovered - great for 'star - gazing' and waking naturally when daylight appears; although not so good if you value a completely darkened room for sleeping late in the mornings!
The studio is a 'no-smoking environment' and I ask that you treat our home with the respect that you would your own.
Guests have direct access to a courtyard for 'al fresco' dining - an extra space in which to relax after taking in all that Bath has to offer. The courtyard leads onto our sunny, peaceful garden.
We are located at the edge of the city centre yet within a level 5 minute stroll of Royal Victoria Park with its renowned Botanical Gardens. A 10 to 15 minutes walk through the park leads to the splendid Georgian architecture of The Royal Crescent and The Circus.
There is a bus stop just outside our home with a regular (every10 min) service to and from the centre. journey time approx 4 min.
The rail link to London has a journey time of 90 minutes.
Bristol Airport is around 35 minutes by car or taxi.
River Studio is a unique, peaceful haven, set within easy level walking of all that the historic city of Bath has to offer. You may arrive on foot, by bike, car, taxi, train or plane...... whatever suits......
The studio with off street parking is independent with separate access and private court yard - ideal for couples wishing to have independence with minimal contact with myself as host. However, as the studio is located to the rear of my home I am closeby if needed. An advantage over a private room is that you are free to come and go as you wish.
I can be flexible on arrival times although normally the studio is available for key collection from 15:30. I try to personally welcome guests to the studio, however, on occasion when I am away from home there is a key safe from which guests may collect the key.
Interaction with Guests
I usually am around to welcome guests although I have found most of my guests find the privacy of the studio attractive. as mentioned, on the odd occasion I am away there is a safe key and the welcome pack includes usual housekeeping details: wifi code TV operation etc. I always leave a breakfast basket with tea, coffee, milk, croissants, biscuits, cereals, OJ & jam.
Guests have the studio to themselves with minimal interaction - although they may sometimes hear us as we come and go via the separate gate into the garden.
Located a level, traffic free walk along the river path / cycle way into the city. Our local urban farm / coffee shop the Grocer on Locksbrook - they do a great range of local produce and superb cooked breakfast!
Buses stop very close by (Windsor Villas stop) for the short hop back from town on those rainy days!
Other Things to Note
The studio is all electric and has smoke alarm fitted.
Please respect the studio as you would your own home and leave it in a clean and tidy state :)
The studio is a no smoking environment.
On vacating the studio please wash up and leave towels and linen in the shower.
We recycle cardboard, plastic, glass and tins - please place these in the basket under the sink.
Thank you :)
It was a nice weekend in a nice studio flat. Maggi welcomed us with warmth along with the very nice little dog; after explanations of ritual, she emphasized her availability for any problem. She was a helpful host indeed! Thank you so much for all!
Maggi was very welcoming and helpful and the studio was lovely. We were aiming for a nice quiet weekend away and it was absolutely perfect for this. I would highly recommend.
Very nice cosy little apartment.great location and coffee shop on the corner is a must visit!!
Maggi was great with communication. Gave us clear instructions on how to get to the studio - by train, taxi, or car. She even offered to pick us up at the station!
The place itself was great. Very cosy, and well appointed. Good location...about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Bath. Everything we needed!
Great weekend in Bath - studio was exactly as advertised and was a great base for the weekend....
We had a lovely and peaceful stay in Maggi's modern little cottage in Bath. Lots of thoughtful touches were much appreciated, and we were happy and comfortable. A little outside the town centre, but worth it for the calm, peace and situation. An easy walk into town, but equally there are a number of buses from the stop just around the corner. Loved meeting the dog, too. Highly recommended, and she was extremely helpful throughout.
Excellent location near the river and very close to town, the studio was a very pleasant place to recover from all the Christmas shopping.
Thanks for your feedback.
The studio is not normally available during these winter months when it is dark much earlier in the day. I am sorry to learn that the lights caused you some disturbance - these were specifically left on to illuminate the private access lane as your wife arrived on her own around 9:00 pm and you were arriving at an unknown time much later in the evening.
I've lived in Bath for many years with my son, Fi-fi the cat and Otto, a joyful puppy - although neither animal is allowed into the studio:)
In a city that's surrounded by hills it is great to be just 7 minutes by bike along the river path into the city with its and excellent choice of restaurants, bistros and gastropubs. Each month there is something to do or see: exhibitions, festivals, cinemas and theatres.....
The city's cafe culture is vibrant - with places to stop and chat over coffee around most corners. While taking time out to relax at the Thermae Spa with its roof-top pool is a wonderful way to spend a few hours!
Situated away from the main road and with the benefit of free off-street parking; the studio offers a secluded, purpose built space with sat TV, wi-fi, hob, microwave, toaster, fridge, iron, kitchen sink, ensuite shower and wc. Electric heating, fluffy white towels, cool cotton sheets, duvet, along with a breakfast basket of tea, coffee, milk, sugar, OJ, croissants / brioche and jam are all included in the rental of the studio.
Outside is a small courtyard for 'alfresco' dining, just right for those warm summer evenings. Our mediterranean-style, urban garden catches the sun and is filled with the scent of lavender and rosemary.
I look forward to welcoming you to the city and River Studio.
