What makes this house unique

No.3 Powlett Road is a beautiful Edwardian town house set within the leafy, tree lined streets of Bathwick. The general area is quiet and is popular with local families.

The city centre is no more than a 10 minute walk away. The walk into town takes you along some of the most prestigious streets in the country such as Great Pulteney Street and Laura Place. These fine examples of Georgian architecture have appeared in many films over the years.

The property has a free parking space - a rare commodity in a city well known for the efficiency of its parking officials!

No.3 Powlett Road also has a wonderful rear garden that comes into its own during the spring through to October. The rear patio area has been planted with grape vines, pear espaliers, figs and dwarf box hedging. This gives it a real continental feel in the natural sun trap of the patio enclosure.

The remainder of the garden is used as a kitchen garden, being planted with the usual vegetables associated with an English garden. It is flanked by an impressive privet hedge that typifies the general suburban feel.

Comfortable clean beautiful garden flat

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at this location and both times have been excellent. The flat is close to all the major attractions in the city, but far enough away to not be overwhelmed with tourist busses and noise. Mark provides a clean, well appointed home base for all sorts of pursuits in the Bath area. Highly Recommend #3 Powlett .

Perfect property for a city break.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a break at No 3 Powlett Road, a fantastically located property just a very short flat walk from the centre of historic Bath. This spacious 2 bedroom house was exceptionally clean and very well equipped with added little extra's like fairy liquid, dishwasher and washing machine tablets, not forgetting the wide range of teas, coffees and a choice of milk on arrival.

Parking was never an issue in this very quiet residential street. The house has a lovely rear garden which is in sunshine for most of the day, which was handy as we used the rotary washing line after visiting the Thermae Spa. There is a very helpful manual full of everything you need to know about the property to make your stay here trouble free and very enjoyable.

A huge thank you to Mark for allowing us to stay in this lovely house, and for going above and beyond to make our stay here perfect, we would highly recommend No 3 Powlett Road, and we hope to stay here again.

Gem of a property for a long stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at #3 Powlett Road and absolutely enjoyed it. We found the house to be very clean and wonderfully stocked with everything needed for a longer stay. Mark, the owner, was very attentive to our needs, checking in with us to ensure that we had everything we needed. The greatest thing about this property is its proximity to central Bath. It only took us 10 to 15 minutes to walk to Pulteney Bridge and that was with the heat and two teenagers in tow! We were within comfortable walking distance to restaurants and two grocery stores. We also enjoyed how close this property is to Sydney Park, Henrietta Park as well as the Kennet Avon Canal which are fabulous for an evening stroll. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend #3 Powlett Road to anyone considering a stay in the Bath area.

Quiet, convenient and well cared-for home-from-home in Bath

  • 5 of 5

3 Powlett Road is a delightful terraced house with every convenience for a visit to Bath. It is in a quiet residential street, but within easy (level) walking distance of the centre and its many attractions. With a sunny outlook at the back over a well-kept garden, it offers a lovely spot to relax (inside or out) after a busy day of sight-seeing. It is tastefully decorated throughout, but with imaginative retention of original features. The kitchen is very well-equipped and spacious, together with the dining area. The thoughtful provision of teas and coffees, together with milk on arrival, was very welcome. It is clear that the owners give a lot of attention to the comfort of their visitors and provide all the information and facilities necessary for an enjoyable holiday. We visited as a retired couple, but the house would accommodate 4 people comfortably. The only drawback for anyone with mobility problems might be the shower over the bath and the relatively steep staircase. We have stayed in many self-catering properties, and this was one of the best we have encountered. It feels like a genuine home, and is very different from chain-rental properties. We would thoroughly recommend it and would definitely book again if returning to Bath.

Perfect location, immaculate interior.

  • 5 of 5

Very attractive terrace in a quiet, pretty, residential street just round the corner from Sydney Gardens.

The interior of the house was spotless and very well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable.

The owner, Mark, couldn’t be more helpful and lives close by.

It is a short walk to the centre of Bath and all places of interest.

We have been twice and will certainly bolok again.

Perfect location for a wonderful holiday in Bath!

  • 5 of 5

Wow ... what a wonderful place to call home while enjoying all that Bath has to offer! The apartment is perfectly clean and tidy. The photos are very accurate and Mark is so helpful in his communication. The highlight for my family ... we could walk everywhere! No need to worry about driving or parking the car. It is a beautifully pleasant walk to The Abbey, The Roman Baths, The Royal Theatre, The Holburne Museum, The Guildhall Market and many delightful shops and restaurants! I can't wait to visit again (and I know where I will be staying)!
