Overview

About the property

Catharine Place Garden - an apartment that sleeps 3 guests in 1 bedroom

There is a marvellous sense of history and romance at this striking Georgian garden apartment for two in the centre of historic Bath. Situated in a handsome square between Bath's famous Royal Crescent and The Circus, it has grand and atmospheric rooms packed with period detail and original decorative plasterwork picked out in Wedgwood Blue. It is equipped with every modern comfort, such as the smart fitted kitchen and private garden, and yet gazing into the flames of the wood burning stove you are immediately transported 200 years earlier when Jane Austen first penned her celebrated novels. Newly renovated in 2013 this property has received a 4 star gold from Quality and Tourism.

The spacious living room is filled with detail, from the ornate cornicing, to the plaster paneling and a decorative frieze above a large carved, working fireplace. Light streams from two tall sash windows with original working shutters. There are two large sumptuous sofas, one of which is a sofa-bed, along with a TV and DVD and a selection of films and books. A folding dining table seats 4 with a set of Spode china for special occasions.

The blue and gold bedroom also has tall shuttered windows overlooking a little walled courtyard garden and an ornate carved fireplace with a mirror over. There is a cream and brass bedstead with a 5' king size bed, a chest of drawers, fitted wardrobe and pretty French style armchair.

A neat white-tiled bathroom with a smoky blue glass trim has polished stone flooring over which is a bath with shower over, a hand basin with storage over and a WC.

The stone floor carries into a lovely cream fitted kitchen with granite worktops and a breakfast bar, along with two high seats. French doors lead into a private courtyard garden. Neatly designed and well equipped, the kitchen is fitted with a gas hob, an electric oven, a large fridge and separate freezer, a small dishwasher and a washing machine combined with dryer.

The Bath Spa railway and bus station are a 15-20 minute walk away. Alternatively a car parking permit for 1 car is available allowing you to park in a resident's bay on Catharine place itself or on neighbouring streets.

A lovely place to stay in Bath

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very nice & well appointed. Staff was very responsive when we had a problem with a faucet sticking. The location was perfect. Close in & walkable to all Bath sites but still a quiet, peaceful neighborhood.

Wonderful flat, combining Georgian elegance with modern conveniences and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Great flat. Well-appointed and just lovely. Lots of light and really enjoyed morning tea in the little garden. In a lovely area too with a little cafe half a block away. I hope to go there again. You should be aware that the flat is a bit over a mile to the Abbey and transit stations and , after a day of walking, the walk up to the flat can be daunting. Totally do-able even for me, a not-too-fit senior citizen, but I confess to taking a taxi a couple of times. No city bus comes close but the hop on-hop off tour bus does. And, although none of the free maps show it, there is another cafe, pub and small market another block up the hill. Anyway, a lovely, very quiet flat to relax. Also, Marcus and Sara were terrific as contacts when there was an issue. Thank you guys! Lastly, jot down the address because, at least in my case, it did not appear on subsequent paperwork.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Maggie. So pleased you enjoyed your time. Catharine place is one of my favourite areas of Bath. It is so quiet and yet so many fabulous cafes and shops close by. Concerned you didn't have the address? The directions with full address and arrival details, access statement etc are always attached to the receipts of payment we email you when you pay. Sorry you missed them and hope your arrival wasn't stressful. Hopefully you can make it back to Bath soon. Take care.

Home away from home for 2 months

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Catharine Place Garden while I was working in Bath for 9 weeks. It is a charming little flat that is quintessentially Georgian. Alexa and everyone else we dealt with during our stay was so friendly, nice, and accommodating. We had a few issues while we were there (to be expected because everything is so old there!) and everything was handled quickly and effectively. It came with everything we needed to live there for 2 months like we would at home. In addition to the property itself being great, it is in an amazing location just between The Circus and The Royal Crescent. There are countless cafes and restaurants that are easily walkable including some of our favorites just steps away in the Margaret's Buildings. We were very happy with our stay and already miss it dearly.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kristin. So pleased you enjoyed your time. When you are in a different country for that length of time I know it is important to find a home from home so glad you found it. Hopefully you will have another opportunity for more work in Bath. Take care until then.

Excellent Location for Exploring Bath

  • 4 of 5

When we travel we always stay in self catering apartments. We shop and cook as if we were at home. Therefore a fully equipped kitchen is of prime importance. The only item that my husband would have liked would be a four cup drip coffee maker.

To be fair we found this amenity in only one of the seven accommodations we rented during our 25 day vacation in the UK. The kitchen is very well equipped.

Parking in Bath is tight. Once you find a spot stay put. Walking is the best way to experience Bath. This apartment is in an excellent location. The Margaret's Shops are convenient for produce, bread and other items.

This apartment was quiet, comfortable and well furnished. It was not as clean as most accommodations in which we stayed during our 25 day trip to the UK. Ashes had been left in the fireplace and could be smelt during a during a brief rain storm.

The keys used to enter the building and apartment are not labeled. My husband was unable to unlock the doors. A certain amount of patience and fineness is required to unlock both doors.

On the whole we would recommend this apartment as a suitable accommodation for exploring Bath.
