Overview

About the property

Circus House Apartment - An apartment that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms

Bath is a photographer's dream. There is dramatic beauty in the grand and elegant curved stone facades and this second floor apartment for four, in an imposing Georgian house at the end of a circular segment of The Circus, has timeless views. Awarded 4 star gold by the British Tourist Board.

The Circus, built between 1754 and 1768 is a masterpiece of John Wood the Elder, with tiers of Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns and intriguing carved emblems, topped with noble stone acorn finials. You can admire it all in detail from the comfort of the living room.

This contemporary apartment, in a warm palate of chocolate, plum and biscuit throughout, has undergone several transformations in its lifetime yet has retained all its period charm. The large living and dining room with sash windows overlooking two aspects of The Circus has two French style velvet sofas by a decorative fireplace. There is a TV with Blue Ray DVD and a separate radio with I-pod docking. A dining table seats four and a French style dresser contains crockery, cutlery and a selection of novels, films and games.

The neat fitted period kitchen has an electric hob and oven, a microwave, a large fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine.

A large mirrored lobby before the bedrooms has fitted wardrobes and shelving. The spacious and comfortable master room has twin beds in a large alcove that zip and link to become a 6' bed. Here also is a fitted wardrobe, a dressing table with storage and a tallboy. A radio/alarm with I-pod docking is provided.

The second room snugly fits two single beds and a small chest of drawers. There is a magnificent view of The Assembly rooms and handsome Georgian terraces. Further storage is amply provided in the lobby.

The contemporary bathroom has smart cappuccino coloured tiling and contains a small double ended bath with shower over, a hand basin with lots of storage under and a WC.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The flat is as pictured and the location was incredible. It was clean and well maintained. There was a binder with lots of good information about the area and the flat. The beds were comfortable. We were provided a little goody basket with food to tide us over until we found a grocery. The greeter worked with us to find a convenient time to meet and show us around. The whole city is just beautiful. We did not have a car and didn't feel like we needed one. It added to the whole experience just being in this wonderful landmark. We ate at many restaurants on our trip and all were in walking distance (The Boston Tea Party, Chandos Deli, Salathai, Jamuna, Sally Lunn, Scoffs). We did the Abbey Tour, a tour of the Roman Baths, and did a 2 hour walking tour of the area. We also met the Lion Tour company for a tour of Lacock Village and Stonehenge. My family and I would highly recommend this flat

Very nice flat

  • 5 of 5

Was greeted by a very friendly host who made us feel welcomed. The flat is beautiful, beds are comfortable, and kitchen is well-equipped. One negative is it does take a long time to get hot water in the bathroom. They have a note in the bathroom about this but it really would be nice if they could get the hot water situation improved. Oh, and they give you a parking permit so you can park nearby...for free! Were worried that it would be noisy being on The Circus. It was not noisy, we slept beautifully. Was super fun seeing the "tourists" walking around The Circus while we were "locals" staying right there in this historic area.

wonderful flat in best location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Bath and truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and cozy flat. It has amazing views and is very clean and comfortable indeed. Close walking distance to everything. We felt right at home from the very first moment and are already looking forward to coming back. A true home away from home! (Only minus is that we don´t want to leave...) Big thanks for everything!

Can also recommend Cavendish cooks, a local company providing lovely homecooked meals. Excellent in every way.

Excellent location and fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in the Circus House Apartment. The location is excellent; we walked to all attractions and shops. The apartment itself is very well decorated and maintained. The agent was very professional and helpful. She even gave us a parking permit which was very handy as parking in Bath is very difficult and expensive. It is on the third floor so it may not be suitable for people with limited mobility.
