Bath, Bath Cottages
There are few locations in the centre of Bath that will better The Margaret's Building Townhouse. Set within a quiet corner of Bath, down a small pedestrianised courtyard where you will see art galleries, cafes and similar shops, this gorgeous home is an exceptional place to stay when visiting Bath. Dating back to the 18th Century, when it was once a ladies shoe shop, this wonderful Grade II listed, Georgian townhouse retains so much original charm that a family or group of (up to) five people can enjoy central Bath in real elegance. Outside, is a quiet pedestrian mall with independent shops, which means you can leave the cooking and everything else behind to make this a 'proper' holiday - city living at its best. Inside, the house is spread across three floors, above a local restaurant (don't worry -there's excellent sound insulation), with the open plan living on the first floor, the master suite on the second floor and the two final bedrooms on the top floor. An historic building, but with warmth and cosiness that makes you feel right at home.
The house is conveniently situated between two of Bath's most famous landmarks, The Royal Crescent and The Circus - each about 30 seconds walk away!
Even in winter, when we visited this was a perfect spot to live like a local with everything on your doorstop and peace inside when you close the front (original!) door. We loved it here.

Historic Bath has so much to offer its visitors whether you just have a weekend to spare or can stay a bit longer.

Close by you will find other architectural treasures such as Queen Square along with 'must-see' attractions such as the Roman Baths, Thermae Bath Spa, Bath Abbey, The Pump Room, and the Jane Austen Centre, which are all just a short walk away. The Assembly Rooms, which houses the world famous Fashion Museum, are also on the doorstep.

You will be spoilt for choice with the various pavement cafes, historic pubs, bistros and restaurant on offer. Annual events such as the literary and music festivals as well as the famous Christmas Market attract thousands of visitors from across the UK.

"What a lovely apartment - a great location! It really added to what was a great weekend. Bath is full of surprises, nice ones at that! Lovely food, fun pubs and the sun finally came out. Thanks again."Mr & Mrs O'Grady & party 2015-04-01
"We've enjoyed our stay in this well located and comfortable apartment (and appreciated the Christmas decorations). It was a shame the Italian restaurant downstairs closed for most of our week. We much enjoyed the one meal we were able to have there."Mr Young & family 2014-12-01
