Overview

About the property

Haystack - a house that sleeps 16 guests in 6 bedrooms

Live the high life at this spacious and contemporary apartment for 14 (or up to 16 with the sofa bed) in central Bath. Perched above a fashionable restaurant with fabulous city views and a thriving night-club scene just a stone's throw away, you'll see why Georgian Bath became the hottest ticket outside London for its top combination of shopping, fashion, entertainment, high society, eye-catching architecture, and health benefits from the thermal spa waters.

The grand apartment in a listed Georgian building has been given a contemporary makeover in pavilion grey, with an impressive staircase leading up to the large open plan living and dining room, sociable kitchen and 6 bedrooms, all with their own small TV and DVD.

The living room is great for gatherings, with high ceilings and three tall sash windows with glorious views of distant hills, Grand Bath stone terraces, Sham Castle and Bathwick Hill on the eastern slopes of the city. Below are gardens and buzzing outdoor terraces when the restaurant is open. There are stylish sofas to seat 12, one of which is a sofa-bed and additional pouf chairs for extra seating. Above a marble lined decorative fire-place is a large TV with DVD and deep alcoves on either side hold a selection of books, games, films and Wi-Fi. At the other end, a large oak table seats 14 with comfy leather dining chairs for all.

The sociable fitted kitchen has oak floors and a wood-look surfaces, with a large central island and breakfast bar with stools for 5. There is an electric hob with oven, a large fridge with separate freezer, a dishwasher and lots of storage. Turn up the sounds on a retro radio with ipod docking and mix cocktails by a large white dresser with an extensive collection of glassware and crockery. There are lively views of the city streets with handsome Bath stone buildings, vintage shop fronts and café society.

The striking staircase continues up to the second floor with 3 bedrooms and a shower room at this level, all with views. The first charming bedroom in grey and sage has two 3' twin beds that zip and link to become a 6' bed along with an easy chair that doubles as a fold-up bed. This room has a fitted wardrobe in one alcove, beside a pretty decorative fireplace and small hand basin in the other, with a couple of small chests for storage and a small TV with DVD. The next spacious room in grey and taupe is a triple with three 3' beds, two of which can zip and link to be a 6' double. It has a fitted wardrobe with shelf space, along with a chest of drawers with TV over and shoe storage with mirror over. The third double bedroom in grey, silver and turquoise is sweet, with a 4'6'' bed, a silver chest of drawers with TV over and a little alcove to hang clothes.

This floor has a small contemporary tiled shower room with walk-in shower, small hand basin with some storage under and WC. Housed in an under-stairs cupboard next to the shower room, is a washing machine combined with drier.

The top floor under the eaves has 3 bedrooms with views over the rooftops to the surrounding hills. On this level is a family bathroom and a small shower room. The first bedroom is a smart twin room in grey and charcoal with two 3' beds that zip and link to become a 6' double. There is a fitted wardrobe with several chests of drawers and a small TV over a decorative fireplace. The next spacious twin is in grey and green with 3' beds that zip and link to become a 6' double. In this room is a fitted wardrobe with several chests of drawers and a small TV over a decorative fireplace. The final cosy and compact double room is decorated in grey and heather with a 4'6'' bed with chest of drawers and small TV.

The spacious family bathroom has double stone hand basins set onto a small grey dresser, a bath with shower handset and WC. Additionally, there is another small contemporary shower room with corner shower, hand basin and WC.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fab time, the house is beautifully presented and very well equipped, it had everything we needed. The other massive bonus was how central the house is, we were could walk everywhere, explore and enjoy lovely Bath. We would book again in a heartbeat- great house!!!

Top pad for a city break in beautiful Bath

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 14 (age range 22yrs - 50ish!!) and we could not fault the location, the layout of the apartment, the facilities (although one shower room was a bit smelly) and the attention to detail. Could not really be much closer to all the shops/restaurants and bars. It was quiet enough for a city apartment, felt very safe and secure. Clean and beautifully presented. We are not a fussy bunch of birds but equally like things to be of a good standard. We got what we paid for and were very satisfied. Great value for money!

location excellent

  • 4 of 5

Lovely central apartment for a large group.Thoughtfully furnished although some in need of renewing, eg table/chairs in lounge.

Smell from café below was a little overpowering at times.

All in all the location is hard to beat.

Gorgeous apartment with great decor. Everything you could need provided. Lovely and warm even over a very wet and chilly weekend in November. Extremely central location with everything only a short stroll away. Would thoroughly recommend!

It is difficult to be more central and everything truly is on your doorstep. George st is adjacent and is lined with night clubs, restaurants, galleries, shops and wine bars. Close by is Milsom Street, Bath's main shopping thoroughfare, which leads down towards the Pump rooms, the Roman Baths, thermae spa and Bath Abbey and in the opposite direction is the famous Circus and Royal Crescent, set in front of lovely Royal Victoria Park where you can enjoy miniature golf, botanical gardens, hot air balloon trips and a children's outdoor play area. Whatever you choose to do, shopping, sightseeing or entertainment, most pursuits are a pleasant stroll of about 5-10 minutes away from your apartment.

A parking permit is provided allowing you to park 1 car in resident bays on neighbouring streets. Charlotte Street car park is also a 5 minutes' walk away or the park and ride bus stops around the corner from the property. The Bath Spa Railway and bus station are a 10-15 minute walk. Alternatively Lansdown park and ride would be your cheapest parking option and the bus runs very regularly and takes you to the bottom of lansdown road where the property is.
