Quirky Georgian courtyard apartment in the centre of Bath on "one of the quietest, most beautiful backstreets in the world" (Giles Coren, The Times). We're a stone’s throw from the Royal Crescent and opposite arguably the best gastro-pub in the city. Perfect for a romantic getaway, a family holiday or for small groups.
This is a spacious courtyard apartment in a beautiful Georgian property. Being on the lower ground floor, it is a little unusual in its layout and while we love the fact it is so quirky - please do take the time to check you would be comfortable staying here before you book!
As well as a comfortable living area with a 4-seater sofa and 2 armchairs, there is a dining table in the main hall that seats 6-8 people. The courtyard garden is laid to astro turf and has a bench.
The kitchen has a fridge freezer, electric oven and gas hob as well as a toaster and kettle. It also has basic supplies such as plates, cups, glasses and cutlery.
At the front of the apartment there is one double bedroom which overlooks the small courtyard garden. This bedroom is also next to the bathroom which has a small bath and shower.
At the rear of the apartment are two interconnecting vaulted rooms with a kingsize bed in one room and two singles in the other. The vaulted rooms do not have a door between them so we have listed them as one room - although we've always used them as two rooms. They would suit a family or guests who know each other fairly well. To be even clearer about the layout, we’ve enclosed a floorplan within the pictures of the apartment.
These rooms are built under the road and would have originally been the coal cellars for the entire house in the 1700s. We’ve lived here and slept in these rooms for nearly twenty years – however for some it might seem a bit strange to sleep in a room with curved walls so we feel we should point this out before you book!
During your stay you will have the entire place to yourselves, however we live in central Bath and so are on hand should you need us. We - or Clair's Mum, Lyn - are usually fairly swift at responding to messages.
We have a key safe system so you can arrive at a time that suits you.
Clair's Mum Lyn often helps out with the management of the apartment so you may see her respond to messages instead of, or as well as, us sometimes. She knows Bath and the apartment almost as well we do!
We like to think this is quite a child friendly apartment and we have childrens' books and toys here, as well as a high chair and a change mat. We also have a cot, however you will need to supply your own bedding for these.
You should note that there are quite a few steps to get into the property (around 18) which can be an initial challenge for some people - as well as prams / pushchairs (although we did manage it ourselves with a buggy for four years!).
- Apologies that we cannot accept hen or stag parties

We’ve lived in Bath nearly all our lives – and in fact we lived in Rivers Street for almost twenty years! It’s a quirky apartment but we love its eccentricities and believe that there’s not a better street to be based for exploring Bath.
We love to travel and due to work and our families living abroad we get to do a lot of it. In fact, through doing so much travel we really appreciate the importance of local knowledge, insider tips and ‘going where the locals go’ so we're always happy to answer any questions, make suggestions or recommendations of things to do, places to eat, etc.
Clair's Mum Lyn often helps out with managing the apartment so you may see Lyn respond to messages also.
Although you have the whole place to yourself during your stay – we’re not far away (we still live in the centre of town) so we’re available should you need us.
Send us a message via Air BnB and we or Lyn will get back to you ASAP.
