It is just a five minute walk over Pulteney bridge to the city centre plethora of cafes, restaurants and shops and two hundred meters from the Holburne museum.

A beautiful, large drawing room overlooking Great Pulteney Street. There are two tall arched sash windows, a decorative fire place, gloriously high ceilings, chandeliers and cornices which make the apartment feel grand, light and inviting. There are three sofas, one of which becomes a sofabed to provide additional sleeping space if needed (additional cost). A flat screen TV/DVD player with BT Vision channels and super fast wifi is available throughout the apartment.


The bedroom with a Grand super king size bed has been furnished with both antique and modern touches to ensure comfort and grandeur. With its high corniced ceiling and chandelier this room feels romantic and inviting and is separated from the drawing room by the original full height Georgian marriage doors. Bed linen, towels, blanket and hair dryer are supplied.

About Rebecca Grobler

We are a local family who have renovated the apartment especially for holiday rental. We live in the Garden Flat and can provide any information you need. Please feel free to contact us. The building has been in the family for a few generations so if you are interested in history we can find out for you.

Rebecca Grobler purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Rebecca Grobler chose Bath

The property is situated in one of the most beautiful and grandest streets in Bath. It’s situated on the ground floor making access very easy. We always thought it would make an ideal holiday apartment due to its location and Georgian feel.

We have just finished having the apartment totally renovated so it will feel clean and new but with all the Georgian splendour that makes it so special.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment has been called The Artpad as all the artworks in the apartment have been supplied and done by local artists - all pieces of work are available to buy. We will be changing the artwork on a rotational basis with other local artists every 6 months.

The apartment is also so centrally located that you have the ability to walk into the city in moments - fantastic. You can enjoy an evening out in one of the many restaurants or bars and simply walk back to your apartment. There is so much art and history to see in Bath and so many walks and bus tours. There is simply too much to explain and needs to be seen in person.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This apartment was fantastic in architecture, views, and location. It is situated on a grand street minutes away from the city centre. It was immaculate and updated and well decorated. Rebecca was a wonderful and very accommodating host. We had a travel delay which resulted in a very late arrival into Bath. Rebecca was quick to communicate and make me feel at ease regarding this and still welcomed us at the late hour. A wonderful memory to be able to stay in a wonderful place like this in beautiful Bath.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is just as pictured, light and airy, with high ceilings and beautiful arched windows. The location simply cannot be better, two blocks from the bridge. We could easily walk everywhere we wanted to visit. Becky is a great hostess. A couple of minor things went awry, and she was responsive and eager to help. This is one of our favorites among all our vacation rentals.

Excellent accomodation in a Georgian space - light and airy with all the facilties needed.

  • 5 of 5

Felt very welcomed into the property. Good communication with property owner over access and a lot of information in flat about facilities and local area. Very clean and tidy with glorious views from all sash windows in the apartment. Felt very entitled living in this space for 5 days - a home from home during our daughters graduation from the University of Bath. Very convenient to Bath Abbey and central for all touristy things without being crowded. Found the property quiet and relaxing.

Wonderful Architurally Delightful Apt.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Art Pad and highly recommend this apt. It is perfectly located in Bath, close to all the sights but on a quite residential street. We drove and therefore found it necessary to buy the parking pass offered. The apt is well appointed, clean, light and airy. The bathroom was modern and nice. The natural light, high ceilings and furnishing all made this apt. special, if returning to Bath I would return to this apt. We found the apt. even more lovely than the web site illustrates.

A Jewel

  • 5 of 5

We booked this stunning apartment for our stay in September. From the outset Rebecca was impeccable and exemplary regarding communication, flexible timing and places to visit. She is a fun person with infectious humour and warmth.

The apartment caters for every need and is beautifully decorated and furnished to a very high standard. It is clean, bright, spacious and airy. The high ceilings and sash windows were charmingly periodic and the art was delightful.The balcony was a treat and the adjoining study / sunroom was a delight bathed in sunshine.The bed was one of the best we have ever slept in. The views were peaceful at the rear of the apartment and the mist descending from the hills was peaceful to watch. The traffic noise at the front was quiet and not intrusive. A parking permit was included but not required as we availed of public transport. The apartment is ideally centrally located.

During our visit we travelled to Highgrove House gardens - a memorable day - and explored other areas of Bath we had not managed to see during our previous visits to this beautiful city.

We left an item behind and it was no bother to Beccy delivering it by 'special courier' - her trusty bicycle - to the restaurant where we were having lunch. Thanks again Beccy!

Personally, we feel that we would like to keep this beautiful apartment a secret but the outside world deserves a treat!

We loved it so much and hope to return in a few months.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

The photos accurately depict this lovely property. Great Pulteney Street is nice and quiet, and the terrace on the back side of the property overlooks lovely gardens below. The flat is within easy walking distance of wonderful restaurants, a large grocery, bakeries and other shops and all of the historic parts of Bath. We would definitely book this property again!

Bath is a small city where everything is in walking distance. There are many walks in the area (Bath skyline, bath canal paths) if you wish to escape the “city” feeling.

Bath truly is one of the most beautiful cities in the UK.
