About this listing
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 :)
Maggie is a really welcoming host, we had great communication whilst booking and prior to arrival. She was waiting for us to arrive and explained how everything worked in the studio.The studio is beautiful and really well equipped, in fact it has everything you could possibly need. Parking is free and right next to the property and its an easy 15 minute walk to the city centre. breakfast is provided but there is a Tesco express just across the road if you need anything else. It is in a quiet location, we enjoyed eating breakfast in the garden.
My parents really enjoyed their stay here. They said it was a lovely walk along the river into town, and a nice Deli and pubs nearby. The flat itself was spacious and clean. Maggi's communication was brilliant, very quick responses to any queries. I would not hesitate to recommend this flat in the future.
La casa è molto bella e pulita. L'host é molto cordiale e disponibile, e l'appartamento é vicino al centro. Esperienza molto gradevole, da ripetere
We had a lovely stay at Maggi's.
Very quick to respond to messages and she was understanding about our late arrival time.
The studio is exactly like the pictures so there was no hidden surprises, and located only a short 15-20 minute walk into town - not a complicated route at all.
The breakfast for the morning was a lovely touch. The place had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.
Would definitely stay again!
Wir waren für 2 Nächte in Bath. Das Stadtzentrum ist gut in 25 Minuten zu Fuss zu erreichen. Maggi ist sehr freundlich und stellte uns einen Frühstückskorb bereit.
Das WIFI funktionierte leider nicht gut, möglicherweise waren die Bauarbeiten in ihrem Haus die Ursache.
Das Studio ist, wie auf den Fotos ersichtlich, eher klein. Es hat zwei Dachfenster, die viel Licht hereinlassen, jedoch kann man sie nicht verdunkeln. Der Boden war nicht so sauber, was mit einem kriechenden Kleinkind wichtig ist.
Our stay was great. The space is small but has everything you need for a short stay for two. Everything was clean and tidy, and the breakfast item provision was a big plus. If you're looking to spend time in the city centre, I would recommend having a car, as the studio is a bit removed from the action (which is a benefit in some ways as well). The host was quite helpful through out the booking process and our stay.
Thanks for your booking & kind words Maryann - yes we're about a 20 min level walk from the centre either along the river path or through Victoria Park. The no 14 bus stops outside - a short 5 min ride into the centre.
I trust your little dachshund enjoyed his romp around the garden & park. Delighted to be able to accommodate you with free off street parking!
Beautiful studio in quiet neighbourhood. Exactly as in the photos and description. Maggi was very pleasant. Highly recommend when staying in bath!

About the Host, Maggi
Welcome to the beautiful, vibrant city of Bath, to the studio and flat which share my sunny south facing garden. In the summer lavender and rosemary fill the space and you may well find Fi-Fi the cat or Otto, our inquisitive spaniel chasing butterflies on sunny afternoons.
In a city that's surrounded by hills it is great to be a level walk (20 min) or cycle ride (7 min) into the centre - I look forward to sharing a little corner of this wonderful city!
