About the property

Apartment in Bath, Somerset, England - Luxurious Ground Floor Apartment With Private Parking Only A Short Level Walk From The Heart Of Bath

A luxurious 2 bedroom ground floor apartment with private parking. Awarded a 4 Star Gold award by Visit England.

Newly opened and furnished in January 2013, the apartment is a luxurious "home from home" in the heart of Georgian Bath.

Only a short walk from all Bath's famous sights and shops.

About Alison Curran

We have lived in Bath for just over 12 years and feel very privileged to live in such a lovely city. We enjoy the environment, the lifestyle, the restaurants, the arts events, the open spaces and some of us enjoy the shopping too... We live about 10 minutes away from the apartment, on the edge of the city and are on hand for any information about our beautiful city. We have also just opened a second, brand new apartment in the city - see Owner's Direct property 8165344.

Alison Curran purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Alison Curran chose Bath

We love the location, less than 10 minutes level stroll past Georgian terraces to the heart of the city.

Herschel Place was built in 2008 to continue the line of the original Georgian terrace, we think the combination of the Georgian exterior and the modern interior with all the advantages of modern building techniques (eg modern plumbing and no draughts through the sash windows!) is perfect for a relaxing holiday.

"The house is furnished to a very high standard. The bedrooms were fabulous. The kitchen had all the utensils we could wish for. The lounge dining room combo made it a very sociable environment a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends."

“Perfect! A beautifully furnished, clean, warm and conveniently located apartment with the added benefit of off road parking."

I can't speak highly about Alison's help over the booking arrangements and the leadup to us actually arriving (there was a train strike on the day of travel!). All that we read about the accommodation and location was word for word. An exceptionally clean, well-maintained and extremely comfortable accommodation with a great location - quiet and a level 15 min walk from the town centre or £5 by taxi if you didn't travel in rush hour! Linen and towels of very high quality; all mod cons in pristine condition and fully functional. Lovely breakfast pack and so much of it that it last us three the two nights we stayed. Highly recommended and will not disappoint. Thank you Alison!
