Visiting this bustling merchants house in the heart of Georgian Bath, Jane Austen might have enjoyed fine tea, good company and the latest news. This atmospheric town house built 280 years ago is full of old world charm. Arranged over 4 floors, with 4 double bedrooms sleeping up to 8 people, and full of lovely antiques, handsome fireplaces, charming prints and pretty linens, it paints a wonderful picture of life enjoyed by wealthy regency businessmen of the city. Period furniture has been elegantly blended with modern appliances to make a very comfortable city residence and the central location makes for a very relaxing stay.

A panelled hallway leads to a charming reception room with fireplace, small table and chairs and couch. There are double doors which lead to a bedroom with double bed, desk and wardrobe enabling the room to be made private from the lounge or opened up to make a grand bedroom.

Old King Street is a small street around the corner from Bath`s central shopping area. You are surrounded by a wonderful choice of shops, great historic sites and entertainment. Next door is the Hall & woodhouse restaurant.

All the major historic sites are close-by; The Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, The Royal Crescent, as well as many museums and galleries, There are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to enjoy as well as the Theatre Royal, the Little Cinema, the Thermae Spa, and Komedia Comedy Club. Visually, the city is stunning, built mostly using honey-coloured Bath stone. It is still very much as Jane Austen knew it and portrayed in two of her novels. Handily, the Jane Austen Centre is around the corner and you can find out more about the author and the Jane Austen festival held annually in September.

Floor Plan


The house was fantastic for our stay. We were 7 women in total and had so much space in the house. The living room upstairs was fantastic for our drinks and the kitchen and dining room were perfect for dinners and breakfasts.

The location was fantastic and I honestly could not fault the house at all. Actually the only thing I would say was that there was a crazed pigeon on the roof of the ground floor bathroom and he was a little angry when we went out into the garden!! but other than that it was perfect

Thank you Alexa and your team for a lovely stay at Old King Street, especially to Olivia who came and met us when we got a bit lost finding the property. The house itself is very welcoming & cosy with all the facilities our party needed. Just a very short walk to the beautiful town centre of Bath we couldn't have asked for more from the location. I would highly recommend a stay at Old King Street & will myself remember Bath Holiday Rentals for any future stays in Bath.

Thanks again for the stay we all really enjoyed our visit to Bath.

Charming house in a superb location. We stayed here to start celebrations for my mum's 70th Birthday, 7 ladies all had a great time. The house was perfect, well catered kitchen, lovely decoration and interiors which made it feel extra special. Check in and out was nice and easy, there was a thoughtful welcome pack and parking right outside the house. We had great access to the main shopping street (2 mins) , restaurants and Bath Spa (get there early). Would definately book again. We all loved it.

Old King Street is a gem in Bath's many treasurers. We rented the house for a birthday celebration and family get together. The house was spacious to easily accommodate the 7 of us, it was warm and cosy (it was very freezing outside) and extremely well equipped. It was a lovely surprise to have such a generous and varied welcome pack. Alexa and her team were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. I have already recommended the house to friends and we hope to be back again soon, thank you

Thank you very much for all the arrangements an sorting out our rental of Old King Street. We really enjoyed our visit to Bath and it's in no small part due to having had such great accommodation.
The location was so perfect for the centre of Bath and made it easy to get to things around Bath town centre. The Old King Street house had all the features and facilities we needed for a great stay. It was in a very good condition and the accommodation was well thought out.

Four of us (two couples, aged 50-57) stayed in this fantastic townhouse for the better part of a week. I don't think you could find a better location than this - a block or two from the most heavily travelled streets in the city, providing a little respite from the summer/graduation ceremony crowds. Easy access to everything you came here for (shops/pubs/restaurants/grocer). While next door to a large and popular restaurant/pub, we never felt disturbed by its patrons. The property itself is cleverly and meticulously updated, while maintaining it's period charm. Pam and Tim have done a phenomenal job of providing for your comfort while working with the challenges of maintaining a listed building. We absolutely loved the kitchen, and the multiple levels of the home make it feel extraordinarily private and spacious. The property was as described; you will find the reality better than the photos can represent. Very highly recommended.

Just wanted to say what a fantastic time my friends and I had at the weekend staying at your property. The house was so lovely and the location is excellent. Even better than expected! Thankyou for the supplies left in the kitchen, so handy! We were really glad we stayed with you instead of a hotel. I will recommend you to anyone I know who is thinking of visiting bath.

Old King Street is a little gem. Right in the heart of Bath, it's a beautifully decorated and maintained house for eight people, with ample space. It's interior layout is delightful. It is the second time we have stayed there and we would certainly do so again. We love the rooms over four floors, the period decor and the feeling of having our own little house only a step from the centre. Bath Holiday Rentals are a great company with helpful staff and we would certainly use them again when we return to Bath
Old King Street Miranda - 2013-04-12
We had a wonderful time Old King Street is a lovely house and we all loved it, the hand over was smooth and to plan and everything was as we would have wished we had no worries and were able to concentrate on our son's wedding. We will definitely be back for a return visit later in the year.
Old King Street Sue B - 2013-04-12
Old King Street offered so much space to enjoy while being right in the heart of beautiful Bath. Well equiped for 6-8 people. I certainly hope to stay here again.
Highly recommended.

A fantastic weekend we've all had at Old King Street and thought the property was lovely - and in such a good location so spoilt all round!..... Cavendish Cooks also proved to be an excellent choice so many thanks for sending me their details!
Old King Street Karen H - 2012-10-12
Me and my girlfriends hired this apartment in July! We loved it! It is such a lovely house with so much character and because of the lovely weather we were also able to enjoy the little courtyard. Perfect location, no cabs needed. Such a fantastic weekend
Old King Street Krystle - 2012-07-13
Thankyou so much for your help. The property was absolutely lovely and my friend from home is a chef and fell in love with the kitchen

Hoping to come back to bath again as there was so much we didnt see and will definitely stay with you again
Old King Street Matt - 2011-12-09
My husband, daughter and I visited this lovely home over Thanksgiving week: my husband is English, and his family live all over England; Bath was the perfect central location for them to drive in and see us during our visit. This home was wonderful, with every possible convenience, and perfectly located in town on a relatively quiet street. The management company was completely responsive to our every request, the home was incredibly warm and inviting. Even the kitchen was perfect, able to cook a Thanksgiving feast for 10 adults and 4 children! We had an amazing time, and are incredibly grateful to the owners and the management company for making our stay as comfortable as possible. We definitely hope to come back again one day, and would STRONGLY recommend this location for any family or group looking to holiday in Bath.
Old King Street The Clarkes - 2011-11-11
We had a lovely time in Bath. It provided easy access to the town centre and all of the things to see and do as well as a nice getaway for all the girls.

I would certainly recommend the house to any of my acquaintances.
