These small cobbled streets off a main thoroughfare into Bath once provided stabling and carriage stores to grand houses. Now a row of neat architect designed modern homes, they retain some of their tucked away charm with the background buzz of the city just visible. This Bath holiday home arranged over 2 floors has been refurbished throughout in 2019 to be fresh and bright. The entrance lobby with coat hooks and a shoe rack leads into a smart well lit corridor with doors to a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite, a spacious shower room and a separate laundry and utility room. Upstairs is an open plan kitchen and living room and another twin (or double) bedroom. Light floods in from three Velux windows which are electronically controlled, each with a wall mounted remote. Much of the modern wall art not surprisingly features hummingbirds.

The Ground Floor
The spacious double ground floor bedroom is decorated in shimmering greys and mauves and has a large window with views of Bathwick St Mary’s church. There are a couple of roomy bedside cabinets with drawers, along with a large alcove cupboard fitted with a hanging rail and deep storage shelves. The smart compact en-suite shower room is tiled in grey and silver stripes and has a corner shower, a hand-basin with storage under, a sensor operated illuminated mirror with shaving socket to one side and a WC.

On this floor is a large contemporary shower room with stylish patterned grey tiling and wall art. There is a large shower and long fitted bathroom unit incorporating a hand-basin, WC, storage cupboards and plenty of shelf space for toiletries plus a heated wall mirror. There is an additional open storage unit for towels or toiletries.

Next to this is a spacious laundry and utility room with a combined washing machine and dryer. This area stores 4 folding chairs with a small folding table stored on the landing for alternative indoor dining facilities for up to 4 people.

The First Floor
On the first floor is another large peaceful bedroom in plush grey and warm yellow with a striking rose feature wall and a large 55" wall mounted TV opposite. Two single 3’ beds can zip and link to become a 6’ double. There is a small wardrobe with drawers under and a long console with storage baskets under and a chair.

The sunny citrus and warm grey living area has a deep bay window with views of the church, Bath stone terraces, mature trees and glimpses of the main thoroughfare. There are two large cosy sofas to seat 2 and 3 with tables for drinks. There is a wall mounted TV with Netflix as well as a DVD and a selection of films and Wi-Fi. There is a Sonos system with speakers in both bedrooms and also USB charging points in all rooms.

The ‘U’ shaped contemporary fitted kitchen in taupe and sparkled grey has a 4 ring gas hob, an electric oven, a microwave, a small dishwasher and a medium sized fridge above worktop level, along with a separate freezer. A Nespresso coffee machine is also provided for that morning wake up call. There is a breakfast bar with 4 stools and plenty of cupboard space stacked with fresh white crockery. The foldaway table can be set up in the lounge for dining for up to 4 should you prefer a table over the breakfast bar seating.

There is parking for 1 car right out front the property. Alternatively the Bath Spa coach and train stations are a level 15-20 minute walk.

Beautiful clean, warm, delightful accommodation. Perfect for walking in to Bath town would definitely stay again.
Hummingbird House Julie - 2021-11-14
Hummingbird House is fab. Great facilities and great location. We had a lovely stay in Bath with everything within walking distance of the house. Parked the car in the private parking space on arrival and never had to move it until we left. Highly recommended.
Hummingbird House Stephen - 2021-11-08
We had a great stay in Hummingbird House (2 adults, 2 children and a baby). The location was fantastic, just 10 minutes walk into the centre of Bath. The house itself was spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped for our stay. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others and would love to come back again.
Hummingbird House Siobain - 2021-10-23
Amazing flat. Location was superb and has every thing you could want. Would definitely recommend.
Hummingbird House Dan - 2021-10-10

Hummingbird House Patrick - 2021-10-07
The accommodation was fantastic! Location is just right, 10 mins scenic walk straight in to Bath. The accommodation has everything you need with added mod-cons for extra comfort from the sky lights, entertainment, parking, and cleanliness. Would recommend highly to anyone busting Bath
Hummingbird House Harps - 2021-09-18
Excellent place to stay and explore Bath. Excellently situated on a quiet street, yet, only a 5 minute walk into town. The description and pictures are a good indication of what is on offer, if anything its better in reality than online. The best value Air BNB I have ever stayed in.
Hummingbird House Richard - 2021-09-15
This was a fabulous place to stay. Extremely comfortable, with everything you could possibly need and the perfect location with just a short walk into the town. It was spotlessly clean, a modern decor and very professional with a detailed welcome and information PDF pack. Would definitely stay again and can highly recommend it.
Hummingbird House Samantha - 2021-06-06
Beautiful place to stay in a quiet part of Bath. Off road parking space is a definite bonus!
Hummingbird House David - 2021-05-31
Great stay! Would recommend to a friend! Thank you!
Hummingbird House Zoe - 2021-05-24

We chose this as it looked fresh & modern, with parking and close to town. It ticked all the boxes and more! The online contact beforehand and details for arrival were excellent & the property was stunning. Really stylish furnishing, modern & of a very high quality. It was great to find milk and wine in the fridge & plenty of washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, towels etc.. This was our first trip away since last summer and we used it as a base to see family nearby. It did not disappoint. The only downside was that we had to come home!

Hummingbird House Gina - 2021-04-16

“Pleased to be one of the first guests staying in the newly renamed Hummingbird House. Everything in Bath is close by, and everything you need is here. The house is quite chic, really comfortable and great for early morning runs along the canal or around Sydney Gardens. You can grab some fresh croissants on the way back from a handy little Tesco, or Dexter’s coffee shop.”

Hummingbird House Lachlan - 2020-12-30
“Excellent location a short walk to the city centre. Very smart, clean and tidy interior. The host was very quick to answer any questions.”
Hummingbird House Richard - 2020-10-03

Lots of local knowledge and tips in the welcome pack . Really lovely welcoming touches ... milk in the fridge and biscuits ! Sanitiser and wipes etc included too .”
Hummingbird House Alison - 2020-09-28
“The property is spanking clean and fitted with the latest gadgets. The welcome hamper was a welcome addition. It made for a very comfortable stay. Would definitely recommend for a family staycation.”
Hummingbird House Sheetal - 2020-09-25
We’ve just returned from a lovely 3 night stay at the property. We’ve had a lovely time. The house is was immaculate in terms of cleanliness and hygiene. I had taken a host of cleaning products with me (I’m a bit OCD about things like that!) but needn’t have bothered as everything (high end products) was provided. The quality of furnishings and fixtures were again to a very high standard and nothing looked old or tatty. The kitchen was highly equipped but we only used it to make tea/coffee and breakfast as we were out at lunchtimes and ordered take aways in the evenings (thanks for the list of popular and recommended take aways too!). The app that I’d downloaded before staying had all the info needed and there was a folder with a printed copy in the kitchen on arrival (along with some lovely welcome treats!). Easy access into Bath and not to far to Longleat and Wooky Hole where we made day trips too. Thank you for an amazing stay and we will certainly return soon.
Hummingbird House Sanober - 2020-08-27
The location of the property is excellent, short work into the town. The property itself is fantastic, very clean and tidy and well maintained and presented. A lovely little base for a stay in bath. Would stay agin.
Hummingbird House Harry - 2020-08-21
clean house and situated in a favourable location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Weather was hot so the house was warm at night, nothing could be done about that.
Hummingbird House Tanvir - 2020-08-14
This accomodation is great for visits to the city of Bath within easy walking distance to the town centre. The accomodation has 2 spacious bedrooms and enough room to cook meals if you are eating in. Thanks again Alexa
Hummingbird House Laurence - 2020-08-09
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. The warm welcome we received throughout the booking process was also reflected in our check in and overall stay. The property was ideally set out and equipped to please two teens and parents looking for a relaxing break. Add to that the perfect location - minutes from the attractions of Bath City Centre and also from the canal and river, allowing us to explore on foot and by bike - and you have all the ingredients of a fantastic staycation We definitely want to come back to Sydney Mews!
Hummingbird House Phil - 2020-08-01
"Stunning location, facilities, styling and comfort. We were delighted with the interior and exceptional cleanliness. Thank you for the welcome pack of goodies."
Hummingbird House Janine - 2020-03-17
Hummingbird House was perfect! Spotlessly clean, well equipped and a great location too! Added bonus of having its own private driveway. Everything was close to hand a short 5 minute level walk into the city centre with all its attractions Roman Baths, Bath Thermae Spa, Bath Abbey, Pump Rooms etc and lots of lovely places to eat. I would highly recommend using Bath Holiday Rentals they are very professional company.
Hummingbird House Debbie - 2020-02-27
"Excellent House. Very conveniently located about 10 minutes walk from centre of Bath which is a most beautiful city. We walked to and from Bath centre all weekend and never had to avail of public transport or taxi once. Car parking spot at front of house. House was spotlessly clean, bright, comfortable with all amenities you could possibly want for an excellent stay. Really appreciated the recommendations on places to eat etc and on the granting of request on check in and out times. When we go back to Bath we will definitely be booking this house again if it is available".

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the welcome pack full of delicious treats and the Christmas Tree we very much appreciated these extra touches.

Hummingbird House is a gorgeous holiday house perfect in every way form the comfortable sofas and beds to the car parking space outside of the property making unpacking and packing the car very easy. It’s our favourite Bath Holiday Rental to date - we will be back.

“Very nice and well equipped house located very near to the town center . The parking space just in front was a great asset”
Hummingbird House Carlos - 2019-11-03

The place is nicer than the picture all in all we had a spendid time there !!”

The house has been furnished to a high standard and we had all we needed for a pleasant stay (except the weather). Amazing location, will definitely use in future if we return
Hummingbird House Daljeet - 2019-10-06
The property is fitted out to a very high standard, with comfortables beds, and within easy walking access to Bath, and convenient parking next to property.

Particularly appreciated the welcoming items, milk, cereals, tea coffee etc. (and the bottle of wine).

Altogether made for a very enjoyable stay for two couples, with convenience of one en-suite bedroom and separate bathroom with shower.

One minor point, the sofas could be a bit more comfortable.

Otherwise all ‘five star’
Hummingbird House Tony - 2019-09-18
“Hummingbird House was the perfect spot for our visit to Bath. The location is close to everything but you are on a very quiet street. Having a parking spot is also a big plus. The place was very clean and the decor and fixtures are high quality.”
Hummingbird House Christopher - 2019-07-04
“Alexia is an excellent host and this property is outstanding. We arrived at midnight to find that the unit was lit, warm and our self check-in went smoothly. The apartment has been recently remodeled and renovated and is exactly as described in the listing. We found a delightful welcome hamper and even fresh milk in the fridge. The kitchen is quite complete and serious cooking may be done. China, cutlery and kitchen equipment is of high quality and appears to be quite new. Basic kitchen items like cooking oil, flour, salt, pepper, etc. were there. The design and decor is modern and comfortable. The rental is situated in a quiet location within easy walking distance of Bath and its many attractions; there is a convenience store close by and a good supermarket in the area. I can enthusiastically recommend this property to the Airbnb community and look forward to returning sometime in the not too distant future.”
Hummingbird House Keith - 2019-06-26
A lovely very comfortable newly renovated Mews cottage, in convenient central location with parking outside the front door, and no expense spared with the interior.
We would definitely recommend!
Hummingbird House Claire & Holly - 2019-05-03
"Great place in a brilliant location, just ten minutes walk from Bath Abbey and the centre of town. The Holburne museum is just around the corner. Light, bright and beautifully designed. Would definitely recommend."
Hummingbird House James - 2019-03-07
