About the property

Apartment in Bath - Close To Stations, Thermae Spa, Roman Baths & Sainsbury

Riverside Apartment is located within the historic Regency part of this small city; it forms the lower part of a Grade II 'listed' stone townhouse built in 1818, and once formed the kitchens of Sir Joseph Huddart's household - he was a local businessman. You can see the old house deeds on the wall.

For summer visitors, there is a small garden for your exclusive use. When you come to Bath out of season, the centrally heated apartment makes a welcome base for returning to, after exploring the city.

Free visitor parking by permit is available in the street. Use of the permit is available free of charge to our guests, if requested in advance..

Parts of the original flagstone flooring, beams, shutters and stonework have been restored to a high standard and combine with modern fittings to make the apartment the ideal choice for an enjoyable holiday or short break.

The apartment has one-bedroom with a lounge/diner, fully-fitted kitchen, bathroom with bath (containing a shower), utility room with washing machine. The River Avon and all its boating activity can be seen from the lounge window. There is a Freeview television and wifi. Linen and towels are provided, with a change of linen offered if you are staying for more than a week.

A third person can be accommodated on a folding Visitor bed in the lounge, by prior arrangement, for an additional charge. Please ask us if you are travelling with a baby or young child in a carrycot.

All the major sites, the Thermae Bath Spa, Theatre Royal, Royal Crescent, Kings Circus, cinema, supermarkets and railway station are all within a short walk. Bath has a wide variety of pubs, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Green Park market (across the road) has the UK's original farmers' market on Saturdays, and the space under the old train station roof also plays host to a variety of other markets such as antiques, vintage clothes, crafts and artisan food at other times.

Small, well-behaved dogs can be accepted, by prior arrangement, for an additional charge.

The apartment is inspected annually and is approved by Bath Tourism Plus and Visit Britain.

All terms and conditions, cancellation policy and house rules are detailed on our Rental Agreement that will be presented to you if you decide to make a reservation with us.

About Graham & Judith Wilson

I've lived in the centre of Bath for over 30 years in our old stone house on the river. Graham and I converted the old kitchens about 20 years ago to make a spacious apartment to let for holidays for a variety of visitors around the world.

Graham & Judith Wilson purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Graham & Judith Wilson chose Bath

The houses in Norfolk Buildings are quite typical of 'Regency' Bath - lovely stone town houses, but a bit smaller than some of the Georgian ones, many of which have been split up into flats. The area is right by the river and quiet, yet within easy walking access of everything you might want to do.

What makes this apartment unique

Classic Bath architecture, Grade " Listed Building - central location, but a quiet, riverside location

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We parked the car in the street and left it there for a week while we walked everywhere'

' Lovely apartment, lovely quiet location and Graham is a welcoming host!'

'Very close to Spa and Roman Baths. Handy to have Sainsburys so close.'

Riverside Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Cosy basement property in Bath with many original features mixed with modern.

Bedroom comfortable with large wardrobe and plenty drawer space. Bathroom lovely and with a powerful shower. Living-room/kitchen is large with one window facing street side and one facing the River Avon. Beautiful garden but could do with privacy fence at end beside public steps leading up to street level. Also some garden deck chairs to relax in the sunshine would be good. A bolt inside the garden gate is essential after returning in the dark as it was very dark on the public steps and the short distance at the side of the river to the garden gate. Once indoors, very secure.

Very comfortable flat with a well appointed kitchen. Within walking distance of all of Bath's sites

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience during our stay at Riverside Apartment in Bath. We could easily walk to the roman baths and all of the other sites we wanted to visit. Graham was easily available and gave us a parking permit so we could park right in front of the apartment. This is a real plus in a city with so little parking. We also enjoyed having a grocery store right next door.

Ideal, tastefully restored, centre of city.

  • 5 of 5

An absolute delight, perfect tastefully restored basement for two. Well equipped kitchen, dining area with river view and double bedroom with view over garden. Plenty of storage throughout. Access from road, down public steps a couple of yards along tow path then in through own private front door. Supermarket literally two minutes away and centre of city, Abbey, Pump rooms and shops easy ten minute walk.

Parking the car with the given permit was fine, as found we did not need to use the car; everywhere was within walking distance. Besides all the conventional places to visit we found Bizarre Bath a great evening's entertainment and the Marmaris Turkish Restaurant a good meal.

Next time we visit Bath would definitely stay here again. .

Perfect Location to Explore Bath on Foot

  • 5 of 5

This small apartment is down a flight of stairs with the entrance located on the path along the river Avon. (Unfortunately, while we were there the path was being upgraded, so we didn't get to use it as much as we'd liked, but we did enjoy an enjoyable walk on part of it.) All of the attractions of Bath are just a 15-minute or so walk away, and a large grocery store is literally right next door (separated by a hedge so it's not visible from the building.) It was a quiet, comfortable refuge with a large tub and good shower. The owners were always available to help us find a place to park on the crowded street (though in truth, we only took the car out once for a drive to Avebury and Salisbury). Americans used to coffee every morning might want to know that the only coffee maker we could find was a cup-at-a-time Melitta cone (which did a good job). All in all, we loved the apartment and the city and would definitely stay here again if we are fortunate enough to visit Bath again.

Cosy,well located garden flat

  • 5 of 5

We were given a warm welcome by Graham, the owner, on arrival,and he provided a parking permit enabling us to park close to the flat.The flat has a great location at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac immediately adjoining the 'riverside walk', close to Royal Victoria Park, and within a short,level walk of the city centre. We had a lovely 3 night stay and would recommend the property to anyone wanting a quiet yet convenient location, with the added bonus to dog owners of a small,private garden and the close proximity of the riverside walk and Park.

Perfect location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

Graham welcomed us to Riverside Apartment and was very helpful in every resect.

The location is great, so close to everything in Bath, yet peaceful next to the river.The apartment is spotless and has everything you need. It is very homely and we loved it. The skyline walk is wonderful, so are the Mad Max tours, especially the one to Laycock and Castle Combe. Jolly's tea rooms are a must.Thank you Graham and Judith for a wonderful week.
