Hi, I'm Margaret,
We offer a double room in our home. Very quiet situation. Wash basin in room
Bedroom is on 2nd floor so some stairs to climb. Bathroom is next to bedroom (not sole use but currently only shared with my son.) Another loo on ground floor. Big kitchen/eating area. Pretty gardens back and front.
210 year old Georgian terraced house 1.5 miles from city centre. Stone's throw from city, next to countryside. Combe Down is a pretty village with a lovely atmosphere. We came from London over 30 years ago and don't really want to move again.
Small shops 100 yards away including small supermarket, deli. Local pub/restaurant The Forester & Flower (8 minutes walk away) does good food in the evening (except Sunday). (We can always book ahead if you want to reserve a table).
For breakfast we offer homemade bread, jams, tea and coffee.
On street parking (free) outside house. Easy walk downhill to Bath (25 minutes), or short bus ride (regular bus service weekdays, slighlty less frequent weekends and evenings). Rather harder walk back up the hill but loads of taxis or parking in Bath centre. If you bring a car it is probably cheaper to leave it outside our house than to park in city centre which is very expensive.
As well as the familiar and well known local attractions in Bath (Roman Baths, Assembly Rooms with Fashion Museum, Holburne Museum, Royal Crescent and loads more), Combe Down is home to the National Trust's Prior Park Landscape Garden, a beautiful place in which to walk and spend an hour or two. I work at the school immediately above and try to show visitors the view of Bath from outside the Mansion whenever time allows.
The Bath Skyline Walk is a short walk from the house ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) for full details) and is a fabulous way to spend a few hours, particularly if you want to have time away from the city centre.
Please let me know if you have any questions about the house or area.
Latest arrival 9pm please - or subject to arrangement. Breakfast is available until 9am.
