If you want to take a break from the city, there is much to explore from the house. Close by is the tiny and atmospheric church of St Thomas a Becket built between 1490 and 1498 over a Norman church with even older Saxon origins. This tiny settlement was mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086. Farther along is Widcombe Manor a fabulous grade 1 listed manor built in 1656, visited by the rich and famous. Nearby is the National Trust owned Prior Park Gardens with a Palladian bridge created in the 18th century by local architect and entrepreneur Ralph Allen with advice from Capability Brown and the poet Alexander Pope. There are fabulous views of Bath and a five-minute walk leads to the Bath Skyline, a six mile circular route encompassing pretty woodlands and meadows, an Iron Age hill fort, Roman settlements, 18th century follies and spectacular views.

The local facilities in Widcombe Parade are very good and include a newsagent, chemist, a couple of coffee shops, hairdressers, florists, and several pubs, restaurants and Indian, Chinese and American takeaways. The nearest supermarket is Sainsbury`s. Nearby Prior Park Garden Centre is great for lunch as well as having a deli, pets, plants cards and gifts. The City has many historic sites and museums and galleries, as well as great shops, bars and restaurants. Bath Narrowboats rent barges and bikes to explore the city or the Kennet and Avon canal and towpath. After all the activity, pamper yourselves in the piping hot pools of the Thermae Spa, or enjoy a night at The Theatre Royal or Komedia Comedy Club.

Testimonials

We stayed at the above property with three generations of family to celebrate daughters milestone birthday. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and suited our needs perfectly.

A big thank you to Marcus for organising our arrival at the property to run smoothly. He was very professional and friendly.

The decorated Christmas tree made it special from the start.

We can definitely recommend Bath Holiday Rentals and if visiting Bath again would stay in one of your properties.

Church St House Ann - 2017-12-05

We stayed at 3 Church Street over the weekend (we left yesterday evening) and on behalf of our group, I would like to say how amazing the house was. We loved our weekend in Bath and the house was perfect for our stay.

Thank you for our welcome pack when we arrived and a huge thank you to Marcus who was very helpful in showing us around and quickly finding us a replacement light bulb for the dining area!

If we visit Bath again we'll definitely be back in touch!

Church St House Rachel - 2017-08-03
Bath Holday Rentals, and Marcus in particular, were extremely professional and accommodating from start to finish. I booked Church Street House to celebrate my wife's significant birthday with all my family including my daughter who flew over specially from Australia. The house is a lovely 4 bedroom property located in a very quiet area some 15 minute walk from Bath railway station . Parking isn't a problem but the street is extremely narrow with just about enough room for other cars to pass. The house is set over four floors and is decorated to a high standard with quality fittings. We tended to use the lounge area next to the kitchen most of time as it is very family orientated. The small adjoining walled garden was also a perfect play area for our two year old grandson. All in all, the house proved the perfect choice and Bath Holiday Rentals a company which offers a very high standard of customer service.
Church St House Jack - 2017-05-31
My family had a really lovely time staying at Church Street the property is very well laid out over four floors and all our needs were met throughout our stay. The parking can be tricky we had two large
vehicles so we had to move them around until we got a space but this was fine

Very close to Bath a short walk although up hill on the way back! The management team were on call and answered
queries very quickly. We would most certainly book again
Church St House Shareen - 2017-04-03
we all had a fantastic time and the house was gorgeous- we were all really impressed and loved the location. Thank you for making our get-together such a memorable one, we shall be recommending Bath Holiday Rentals!
Church St House Emma - 2016-12-28
Thank you the most wonderful stay in bath. The house was beautiful and close enough to the town centre.
What makes the house is the gorgeous room downstairs. We could all relax in one place and it was perfect for us.
The only thing which we didn't quite get the hang of was the smart shower/ toilet but as there was another shower and bathroom - this didn't affect us that much.
The house was immaculate and leaving tea, coffee and cereal etc was a lovely touch.
Thank you for everything.
Church St House Maria - 2016-11-24
Our stay at Church Street was absolutely marvellous!
We had everything we needed, from hairdryers to comfy beds and the rest.
The house is tastefully decorated and felt like a real home from home, just what we all needed.
All the help and advice we got from Olivia was greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Church St House Barbara - 2016-04-04
Great house, catered for all our needs. 7 old school friends just catching up! Good location. Thanks for the use.
Church St House Leah - 2016-03-21
We recently stayed for three nights at Church St House and despite the weather, had a really relaxing and enjoyable stay. The property is very comfortable with space for far more than the three of us and oozes with character as well as being ideally situated to enjoy all that Bath has to offer. We really felt at home and would stay there again.

Your service and particularly Olivia’s welcome was up to the usual high standard and we look forward to using Bath Holiday Rentals again in the near future as we have done for a number of years.
Church St House Vic D - 2016-02-20
This is the second time we have used Bath Holiday Rentals and we have had another excellent stay. The house was exactly as described and suited the needs of a three generation family celebration perfectly. Lovely welcome hamper and high quality fittings, linen, toiletries throughout. The situation suited us as the house was close to Thomas a Becket Church and Prior Park Gardens, which were the focal point of our visit to Bath on this occasion. It is quite a hike back up the hill from the city centre though, so worth bearing this in mind. Olivia was very helpful and flexible with our arrival and departure times, which was great. We would highly recommend The White Hart at the bottom of Widcombe Hill - we had a couple of excellent lunches there.
We were born and brought up in Bath and love the city. In the past we have stayed in hotels but when we return in the future, we will always try and book a property with you.
Church St House Christine - 2015-11-24
We had a fantastic stay at Church Street, the house was absolutely beautiful and so well located. Olivia was extremely helpful with recommendations for restaurants etc, and the information at the house was very useful too.

The downstairs room off the kitchen was stunning and ideal for entertaining. The bedrooms so comfortable with beautiful bedding. I would thoroughly recommend this house and would love to return.

Many thanks for all your help and for making our stay such an enjoyable one!
Church St House Carolyn B - 2015-03-29
I am just emailing to say a huge thank you for a very pleasurable stay at the above property. Right from the start, from the booking right through to the end of our stay, everything went smoothly. The house itself was beautiful and equipped fantastically. We feel we were extremely fortunate to have found this gem within Bath. I thank you again and I will definitely be coming back and am already telling many others to go to your website.
Church St House Natasha - 2014-11-05
Church Street House is fabulous - it helped make our long weekend in Bath. We all agreed it was top notch s/c accommodation with everything provided that you could possibly need for a short or long stay. The quiet location - Widcombe Hill - away from the centre of Bath, was just what we wanted but getting into town on foot was easy and by taxi - even easier. Lovely views from the bedrooms and the small garden were a real bonus. All the stairs make it challenging for anyone with mobility issues and it's probably not suitable for anyone with small children. We will definitely be back.
Church St House Bernie - 2014-08-16
We had an excellent trip to Bath. The Church St property was of a very high standard, and the service from Bath Holiday Rentals exemplary
Church St House Jon L - 2014-06-04
Our family spent a very enjoyable Christmas week at Church Street. It is a lovely and very well appointed house with a luxurious feel and everything you could want for a very comfortable stay. The delightful rural views from the back belie the fact that you are only a 10 minute walk from the city centre.
Church St House Lindsay I - 2013-12-21

The house could not have been more perfect. It is ideally located just a 10 minute walk from Bath Spa train station and all the shops, bars, restaurants, the Christmas market (we went in late November) and the Spa a few minutes further.

The house itself was really clean and tidy and comfortably accommodated our group of 8. We prepared a meal one night and found everything we needed, not a single thing had been missed. The decor was gorgeous and in keeping with the property and all the bedding and furnishings were crisp, clean and cosy.

Everyone remarked on how comfortable and welcoming the house was and it really made for a special weekend.
