Perks for the Parents

This fantastic 6-bedroom Georgian townhouse in the center of Bath’s artistic quarter is walking distance from boutiques, parks and the city’s renowned spa. The historic and characterful building includes elegant drawing rooms and a kitchen with a long wooden table for large family meals. Sleeping up to 17 plus a baby in 6 bedrooms, there is plenty of scope to travel with another family or as a large multigenerational group. The location makes it easy to explore the West Country, Stonehenge, the Cotswolds and other classic English locations.

Why Kids Love it

The house includes a crib, toys and books and children’s dinnerware. Bath itself is a great city to visit with kids, with The Egg, a children’s theatre, in the heart of the city, beautiful buildings and a large park, Victoria Park, with a huge playground. Specialist boutiques in the city include toy shops. Boat rental for days on the river is available nearby. Walking tours of the city offer an interesting way to explore, and street entertainment outside the cathedral is often great family fun. The city’s museums often run trails that appeal to children, and the old Roman Baths are likely to be a high point of any visit.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. Note that the property is over several floors and does not include stair gates. Car rental useful for exploring the wider area; Bath itself is highly walkable. Parking can be tricky and/or expensive in the town itself; this property has 1 off-street parking space. Catering may be possible - please liaise with the host for further information.

About the Location

The residence is on Walcot Street in the very heart of Bath. The street is known as the city’s artists quarter, and is populated with independent stores including a cheese shop, a retro shop and interior design stores. There is a supermarket a short walk away and a regular flea market on a Saturday nearby. The house is a 10-minute walk from Bath Spa train station and easily reached by car from Bristol, Cardiff and London. The nearest international airport is in Bristol, 50 minutes away, while London Heathrow is around 2 hours away by car. Bath is well connected by rail - Bristol is 11 minutes away and London Paddington is 90 minutes away.

Accommodation Details

This 6-bedroom, 3-bathroom Georgian townhouse includes a private garden at the back of the property and 1 off-road parking space. It includes a generous kitchen with a large dining table, a study and a grand reception room with city views. There is a second study off the reception room. The 6 bedrooms include 1 with 2 double/fullsize beds, 2 with 2 twin beds, 1 with 3 twin beds, 1 with a kingsize bed and 1 with a queensize bed. There is an additional sofa bed in the lounge, sleeping 1-2. Bathrooms include bathtub and walk-in showers.

Style Notes

Georgian style. This grand house is a Grade II listed building built from the iconic golden Bath Stone and was built in the late 1700s. Set in the oldest part of the city, it includes luxurious and grand rooms, antique furnishings, high ceilings and dramatic city views. As the sun goes down, the city glows gold in the dimming sun. A grandfather clock at the bottom of the stairs and an antique chaise longue hark to the Georgian period, along with oil portraits, chandelier lighting and original fireplaces. We love the fantastic kitchen with its long wooden table, the location in the buzziest part of Bath, and the compact garden for afternoon tea in the sunshine.

StayBeyond was born out the simple idea of finding perfect locations to bring families together to enjoy precious holiday time. Hotels, while offering up five-star luxury, separates families. Separate rooms with separate keys. Rooms on different floors. Breakfasts at different times. And having to organise a time to meet in the lobby… What a family holiday needs is a family home. We wanted to create a holiday experience the whole family can be part of; the freedom to have breakfast together in your pyjamas, cosy nights spent in front of the fire, and drinks in the garden while the children play on the lawn. StayBeyond want these special moments to be part of every holiday experience, without having to compromise on the creature comforts and little luxuries that come with the hotel stay. Whether your family is just a pair, or includes Great Auntie Marge and the family dog, we hope you wake up feeling at home, surround by those that mean the most.

Bath, North Somerset

Roman baths and country parks

Bath is one of England's most glorious small cities, and ideal for a visit with kids. Stroll streets of honey-colored stone buildings, browse boutiques and farmer's markets and play in the huge playgrounds of Victoria Park. The Egg Theater puts on spectacular shows just for the kids, while a trip to the Roman Baths - where locals swam up until the 1970s - is likely to be a high point of any trip. Add to that afternoon tea with scones and jam, and a trip to the Thermae Bath Spa (over 12s only), and you'll have a perfect stay in the city.
