It is a very old building. The entrance hall feels small but don't despair! The Studio is a grand, light room with high ceilings, 2 huge Georgian windows with working shutters and an old fireplace. Like the rest of the apartment no room has 4 right angle corners! The kitchen is modern with a cooker, hob, microwave, washer/dryer, fridge/freezer. It's 3rd Georgian window means sunlight is flooding in throughout the day. It has been a challenge getting the furniture right. I hope you love it too.
My Quirky Studio can be found less than 400 yds from the junction of George and Milsom St. Follow the high pavement on the left side of the Paragon (this side is called Vineyards, but dont worry you will get used to Baths original way of naming streets) past the Star Inn and we form the point (yes the point!) of the building beside the park.
The Studio, accessed up a short flight of stairs, is small but ‘perfectly formed'. Light, bright, high ceiling and sunny most of the day. It consists of a large living area; separate, good sized kitchen and a shower room.
For my studio I have researched a ‘cool' Italian wall bed. Kingsized, sprung mattress which is easily pulled down and returned to its closed position. It is extremely comfortable and offers a great sleep. Once closed a large, comfy sofa is revealed, by replacing the cushions stored under the seat. No bed making nor struggling with sofa beds. Bliss!
The two Georgian windows have working shutters, one looking out towards Hedgemead Park, the other across the Paragon. Mounted on an extending arm is a 43" TV you can position to suit you. There is a small, extending dining room table adjacent to the window which catches the morning sun, perfect for breakfast.
The kitchen has 2 USB ports, built in for charging your phones, iPad, laptops. I provide basic cooking utensils, pots and pans, toaster, kettle, etc. and unlimited tea, coffee, sugar, sweeteners with a selection of individual cereal packs and muesli sachets for breakfast. I also leave a pint of fresh milk and butter in the fridge and a loaf of fresh bread. I will do my best to accommodate dietary restrictions if you let me know when booking. However, Waitrose is less than a 10 minute walk and carries most things. There is a caffetier for your use, but I don't provide any ground coffee
The lobby leading to the shower room has a large wardrobe with some full & half length hanging space and a three drawer chest. The shower room is a weird shape but a new corner cubicle has been fitted, the illuminated mirror has two shaving/tooth brush points.
Access via the front door, hall & stairs. In keeping with the buildings age, the stairs well lit but quite steep, although there is a handrail. I'm sorry but his needs to be considered by guests with impaired mobility. Once inside the Studio it is all yours.
Общение с гостями
I live very locally, about 10 mins walk away. I will give you my phone number and I am usually available if you have any questions about the Studio or Bath. Because I am a local I have tried many of the pubs, restaurants, independent cinema, theatre, etc. I am happy to give you the benefit of my experience if you want to ask.
I walk everywhere and I am happy to suggest walks along the canal, river or how to hire a bike and take the cycle track. If I can help I will.
Другие важные подробности
I try and meet all my guests to show you round the Studio, but there is a key safe if you are arriving late at night. There is an information pack in the flat. You can be completely self catering if you wish (but why would you want to with Bath beckoning?).
Please look after my cosy Studio as if it belongs to you, good friends or family, leaving it as tidy as you found it.
For safety reasons, no naked flames and there is no smoking anywhere in the building, but Hedgemead Park has 2 entrances within 30yds and bench seats you can relax on.
Please respect this residential area and keep noise to a minimum after 11pm.
Sorry, but strictly no pets.
I was born abroad and spent half my childhood living between the UK, Singapore and Hong Kong. My peripatetic lifestyle as a child carried through to adulthood. Now I can't wait to go abroad on holidays. I have family and friends scattered throughout the world who allow me to use them as springboards into my next 'down to earth' adventure. Last stop North East Ethiopia!
When I moved out of London after 30+yrs it was not a difficult choice to come to Bath. Bath has a vibrant tourist industry which makes it feel cosmopolitan, it has beautiful architecture, amazing leisure facilities, restaurants, theatres, etc. It is a World Heritage City but it is not lost in the past. I love living here.
