If you want to take a break from the city, there is much to explore from the house. Close by is the tiny and atmospheric church of St Thomas a Becket built between 1490 and 1498 over a Norman church with even older Saxon origins. This tiny settlement was mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086. Farther along is Widcombe Manor a fabulous grade 1 listed manor built in 1656, visited by the rich and famous. Nearby is the National Trust owned Prior Park Gardens with a Palladian bridge created in the 18th century by local architect and entrepreneur Ralph Allen with advice from Capability Brown and the poet Alexander Pope. There are fabulous views of Bath and a five-minute walk leads to the Bath Skyline, a six mile circular route encompassing pretty woodlands and meadows, an Iron Age hill fort, Roman settlements, 18th century follies and spectacular views.
The local facilities in Widcombe Parade are very good and include a newsagent, chemist, a couple of coffee shops, hairdressers, florists, and several pubs, restaurants and Indian, Chinese and American takeaways. The nearest supermarket is Sainsbury`s. Nearby Prior Park Garden Centre is great for lunch as well as having a deli, pets, plants cards and gifts. The City has many historic sites and museums and galleries, as well as great shops, bars and restaurants. Bath Narrowboats rent barges and bikes to explore the city or the Kennet and Avon canal and towpath. After all the activity, pamper yourselves in the piping hot pools of the Thermae Spa, or enjoy a night at The Theatre Royal or Komedia Comedy Club.

The property meet our expectations and was well located within walking distance of the main City of Bath as well as 3 local pubs.
We would recommend to all to use Bath Holiday Rentals and we will do so again this year.
We stayed at the above property with three generations of family to celebrate daughters milestone birthday. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and suited our needs perfectly.
A big thank you to Marcus for organising our arrival at the property to run smoothly. He was very professional and friendly.
The decorated Christmas tree made it special from the start.
We can definitely recommend Bath Holiday Rentals and if visiting Bath again would stay in one of your properties.
We stayed at 3 Church Street over the weekend (we left yesterday evening) and on behalf of our group, I would like to say how amazing the house was. We loved our weekend in Bath and the house was perfect for our stay.
Thank you for our welcome pack when we arrived and a huge thank you to Marcus who was very helpful in showing us around and quickly finding us a replacement light bulb for the dining area!
If we visit Bath again we'll definitely be back in touch!
vehicles so we had to move them around until we got a space but this was fine
Very close to Bath a short walk although up hill on the way back! The management team were on call and answered
queries very quickly. We would most certainly book again
What makes the house is the gorgeous room downstairs. We could all relax in one place and it was perfect for us.
The only thing which we didn't quite get the hang of was the smart shower/ toilet but as there was another shower and bathroom - this didn't affect us that much.
The house was immaculate and leaving tea, coffee and cereal etc was a lovely touch.
Thank you for everything.
We had everything we needed, from hairdryers to comfy beds and the rest.
The house is tastefully decorated and felt like a real home from home, just what we all needed.
All the help and advice we got from Olivia was greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Your service and particularly Olivia’s welcome was up to the usual high standard and we look forward to using Bath Holiday Rentals again in the near future as we have done for a number of years.
We were born and brought up in Bath and love the city. In the past we have stayed in hotels but when we return in the future, we will always try and book a property with you.
The downstairs room off the kitchen was stunning and ideal for entertaining. The bedrooms so comfortable with beautiful bedding. I would thoroughly recommend this house and would love to return.
Many thanks for all your help and for making our stay such an enjoyable one!
The house could not have been more perfect. It is ideally located just a 10 minute walk from Bath Spa train station and all the shops, bars, restaurants, the Christmas market (we went in late November) and the Spa a few minutes further.
The house itself was really clean and tidy and comfortably accommodated our group of 8. We prepared a meal one night and found everything we needed, not a single thing had been missed. The decor was gorgeous and in keeping with the property and all the bedding and furnishings were crisp, clean and cosy.
Everyone remarked on how comfortable and welcoming the house was and it really made for a special weekend.
