Circus House Apartment

The Circus, built between 1754 and 1768 is a masterpiece of John Wood the Elder, with tiers of Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns and intriguing carved emblems, topped with noble stone acorn finials. You can admire it all in detail from the comfort of the living room.

This contemporary apartment, in a warm palate of chocolate, plum and biscuit throughout, has undergone several transformations in its lifetime yet has retained all its period charm. The large living and dining room with sash windows overlooking two aspects of The Circus has two French style velvet sofas by a decorative fireplace. There is a TV with Blue Ray DVD and a separate radio with I-pod docking. A dining table seats four and a French style dresser contains crockery, cutlery and a selection of novels, films and games.

The neat fitted period kitchen has an electric hob and oven, a microwave, a large fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine.

A large mirrored lobby before the bedrooms has fitted wardrobes and shelving. The spacious and comfortable master room has twin beds in a large alcove that zip and link to become a 6' bed. Here also is a fitted wardrobe, a dressing table with storage and a tallboy. A radio/alarm with I-pod docking is provided.

The second room snugly fits two single beds and a small chest of drawers. There is a magnificent view of The Assembly rooms and handsome Georgian terraces. Further storage is amply provided in the lobby.

The contemporary bathroom has smart cappuccino coloured tiling and contains a small double ended bath with shower over, a hand basin with lots of storage under and a WC.

Testimonials

It's always a great relief when our travel arrangements go smoothly and to plan, particularly when we have to travel half way around the world. Our sincere thanks to you, Sara and Marcus for making that happen in Bath. We could not have been happier with the service you all provided, the accuracy and depth of information on your website and in the paperwork sent to us (including the tip about the stairs) or with the high quality of the apartment. Everything was perfect.
Circus House Apartment Allan and Laurelle - 2018-05-10
Fantastic stay Great apartment and location. 5 stars
Circus House Apartment Chris - 2017-11-30

We had a wonderful stay in the Circus House Apartment. It was ideal for our weekend break, very central and everything within walking distance. The apartment was lovely and had everything you'd need. Would definitely book again!

Circus House Apartment Anne - 2017-11-13
Was greeted by a very friendly host who made us feel welcomed. The flat is beautiful, beds are comfortable, and kitchen is well-equipped. One negative is it does take a long time to get hot water in the bathroom. They have a note in the bathroom about this but it really would be nice if they could get the hot water situation improved. Oh, and they give you a parking permit so you can park nearby...for free! Were worried that it would be noisy being on The Circus. It was not noisy, we slept beautifully. Was super fun seeing the "tourists" walking around The Circus while we were "locals" staying right there in this historic area.
Circus House Apartment Tamara - 2017-10-10
We were very excited to be staying on the Circus during our trip to Bath. And the Circus House Apartment was great. We loved everything from the colors of the walls, to the views of the Circus from the front and the Assembly rooms from the rear. We were able to cook meals in the small kitchen and comfortably seat 4 adults at the table in the elegant main room. The bathroom was modern and well-equiped. I particularly liked gazing over the Circus, perched on a bar stool with a cup of tea on the wide window sill. The flat had everything we could wish for, including a stop for the hop-on-hop-off tour bus right outside the door.

We had a great experience with Bath Holiday Rentals. I would recommend them to friends. Communication went very smoothly. The apartment was spotless. Sara met us at the flat and made sure we had everything we needed -- she even came back to bring us a mat for the bath tub. She recommended an excellent gastro pub nearby for our first meal.

Thanks for making our holiday so special.
Circus House Apartment Erika - 2017-09-27
Great location Perfect location to stay whilst we got married at the assembly rooms just a few seconds away. Apartment was beautiful and had a very comfortable sleep. Would definitely stay again.
Circus House Apartment Jenna - 2017-09-14
It had been nine years since we last lived in Bath. We stayed at the Circus house flat for a short return visit and it felt like we had returned home again. We felt so comfortable the entire time. We will be back one day soon

Circus House Apartment Ben - 2017-01-25
We had a great time in Bath and truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and cozy flat. It has amazing views and is very clean and comfortable indeed. Close walking distance to everything. We felt right at home from the very first moment and are already looking forward to coming back. A true home away from home! (Only minus is that we don´t want to leave...) Big thanks for everything!
Can also recommend Cavendish cooks, a local company providing lovely homecooked meals. Excellent in every way.
Circus House Apartment Daniel - 2017-01-14
Circus House Apartment: this is an absolutely superb apartment in a superb historic area of Bath.
It is a beautiful apartment within a gorgeous Georgian house. It has been equipped to a high standard with everything needed for a comfortable break. The rooms are well laid out with plenty of comfortable furniture, the rooms are very light and airy with wonderful views of the Circus from the main room.
Being able to order food in from Cavendish Cooks is really helpful. The food is lovely.
The location is so close to the Royal Crescent and the town itself. There are plenty of eateries within walking distance and being able to park close by was a godsend.
It has been a pleasure to have contact with the staff at Bath holiday rentals, i would certainly use this company again.
Circus House Apartment Vee - 2016-12-16
Thank you for our pleasant stay. The location of this property is excellent. Bath Holiday Rentals thought of everything to make our stay complete.

Circus House Apartment Barak - 2016-09-23
We have just had a glorious week in August in the Circus Apartment, so much so that we have straightaway booked another Bath Holidays Rental apartment for December. The apartment is extremely comfortable and has excellent facilities, the view on to the Circus itself is iconic and the location is ideally suited for getting into the town centre. We were also looked after hospitably on arrival. Thank you!
Circus House Apartment Nick - 2016-08-25
Excellent accommodation in an ideal location ---
We have recommended it to friends and we would be happy to come again.
Circus House Apartment Charles - 2016-08-08
Many decades ago I visited The Circus as a tourist and like so many people were impressed by the design, architecture and history. Back then, whilst standing amongst the trees, I said I would love to stay in one of the beautiful houses/apartments - that one day arrived when we stayed at the Circus House apartment. I loved every moment. The apartment is beautifully designed and tastefully decorated - I already know that we will be returning for another stay.
Circus House Apartment Bernadette - 2016-04-15
Thank you for your email and for the deposit refund. I would like to mention that both myself and Douglas thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Bath, especially with the location of the Circus Hose Apartment. It had everything you could possibly need, making us feel at home. It was our second visit to Bath and certainly the best one at the Circus House Apartment. Will definitely be returning and certainly highly recommended.
Circus House Apartment Jenny C - 2015-12-13
We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodation at the Circus House Apartment. The location is superb! It was so easy to walk everywhere and see all the Bath highlights. We were also pleased that the Waitrose supermarket was so handy.

Please thank Olivia for meeting up with us so quickly on our arrival and carrying my heavy suitcase up those stairs! Very kind of her.

Also thank you for the welcome items; very thoughtful and we thoroughly enjoyed everything.

We can most definitely recommend your service and this apartment. Superb.
Circus House Apartment Eleanor - 2015-08-04
Our party of 3 very much enjoyed our recent stay in Bath. The apartment was well appointed with upscale items, sheets, towels and the location couldn't have been better. It was ideal to have a parking pass provided as it allowed us some flexibility to explore the surrounding villages. We were touched that there were basics such as coffee, tea, wine and fresh milk and biscuits and candy upon our arrival. The rooms were comfortable and quiet and the shower was fantastic.

We will definitely recommend this to our friends in the UK as well as the US.
Circus House Apartment Janis - 2015-06-18
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Circus House apartment. As we are repeat clients of Bath Holiday Rentals, we had nothing but the highest expectations and we were not disappointed. The comfortable flat is absolutely perfectly located in the city and gave us a birds eye view on the musical festivities taking place in the Circus below. The service received from your company was very warm, with a professionally executed arrival process, flexible departure and attentive return phone calls to a query about the heating. Of course, Bath Holiday Rentals will always be our first choice for staying in Bath, as you truly offer a home away from home. Thank you Alexa and team!
Circus House Apartment Jennifer D - 2015-06-09
The flat is as pictured and the location was incredible. It was clean and well maintained. There was a binder with lots of good information about the area and the flat. The beds were comfortable. We were provided a little goody basket with food to tide us over until we found a grocery. The greeter worked with us to find a convenient time to meet and show us around. The whole city is just beautiful. We did not have a car and didn't feel like we needed one. It added to the whole experience just being in this wonderful landmark. We ate at many restaurants on our trip and all were in walking distance (The Boston Tea Party, Chandos Deli, Salathai, Jamuna, Sally Lunn, Scoffs). We did the Abbey Tour, a tour of the Roman Baths, and did a 2 hour walking tour of the area. We also met the Lion Tour company for a tour of Lacock Village and Stonehenge. My family and I would highly recommend this flat
Circus House Apartment Susan K - 2015-06-02
We had a really nice break in Bath, the apartment was very nice with a welcoming bottle of wine, biscuits, chocolate, tea, coffee and milk, everything that was needed was there. There was also a very comprehensive information brochure, we tried the italian restaurant and it was excellent. this is the second time we have booked with Bath Holiday Rentals, and have been very happy with the service. Thank you
Circus House Apartment Georgia - 2015-05-04
The apartment was the highlight of our trip.
Perfect location for seeing all of Bath.
Highest recommendation!
Circus House Apartment Samuel - 2015-04-09
thank you for your email we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I will be very happy to recommend the apartment to family and friends if they travel to bath. Thanks again loved our stay
Circus House Apartment Anne R - 2015-03-12
Thank you for your email Alexa, we had a lovely time in Bath and our stay comfortable and ever so convenient (hence we are all shopped out!)

We'll definitely be in touch on our next visit.
Circus House Apartment Julia & Dan - 2015-01-08
We had a fantastic time, as always, in Bath, helped by your first rate service. The flat was excellent with everything we needed. We particularly appreciated the fact that we were within walking distance of everything we wanted and didn't need the car. We will be back next year, probably with a larger gang of girls.
I have recommended your company wholeheartedly to many of my friends. Who would want to stay in an hotel??!!
Circus House Apartment Gail B - 2014-11-25
We loved it there, it was the perfect break, so easy being able to park hassles free and being in the Circus was so nice, we all loved the apartment and location.

We hope to stay there again sometime in the future.
Circus House Apartment Jeremy - 2014-11-05
The apartment was perfect for our stay. It was beautiful, spacious, well-appointed and within comfortable walking distance of the main attractions. The welcome package was a very nice touch!
Circus House Apartment Karen C - 2014-10-08
Many thanks for all your concerns about our stay, everything was good and my family and I enjoyed a lot the flat and its location. I'm certainly recommending using bath holidays to all my colleagues going there to work up the U. of Bath.
Circus House Apartment Ramses - 2014-09-26

I had a great time in Bath.

The Circus House was centrally located, and in a residential area. There was plenty of room for the three of us.In fact, I wish I had a second bedroom in my own flat!

The wine and other goodies we received upon our arrival were also greatly appreciated. In the kitchen,the clothes washing machine was a godsend for anyone travelling with a limited wardrobe.

All in all, I would give the Circus House a resounding A!

Circus House Apartment Gary G - 2014-04-30
This is a fantastic 2 bedroom apartment in a brilliant location. It is spacious, very well furnished and well priced. The company we booked through Bath Holiday rentals - Alexia, were excellent and responsive. Initially the heating was a little low but this was promptly rectified by a plumber who adjusted the boiler and from then on it was perfect. We are frequent travellers and I can not recommend this accommodation more highly.
Circus House Apartment Fiona M - 2013-12-12
Many thanks for your help and kind assistance for our stay at Circus House Apt 2 for the past few weeks. We really enjoyed being there and the flat was great, absolutely can't complain about a thing and will not hesitate to recommend you all whenever the opportunity arises in the future.
Circus House Apartment Sarah D - 2013-05-17
We loved the apartment! It was very comfortable and in a great location. It was very quiet and the view was beautiful. I don't think anyone else was staying in the building, or at least we didn't hear them, so we felt we had it entirely to ourselves. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Bath.
Circus House Apartment Jane V - 2012-10-12
We had a wonderful stay in the Circus House Apartment. It is so well presented, clean and comfortable. We loved Bath and the apartment is in such a beautiful and convenient location, we could walk to everything we wanted to see in Bath. If we ever have the opportunity to return we would certainly book the apartment again.
Circus House Apartment Joanne C - 2012-09-14
We had a lovely and relaxing time in this property. The flat was perfectly equipped. We enjoyed playing chess, listening to our iPhone music or drinking earl grey tee in the living room. The location of the flat at the circus was great because we didn´t need the car during our stay in bath. A lot of thank´s to Robert who gave us a very friendly an perfect introduction an of course to Alexa for the perfect organisation and the always fast response. We look forward to visiting bath again.
Circus House Apartment Scmidt Family - 2012-08-17
We really enjoyed our stay at the Circus House. Even our tour guide was envious that we were staying in this historic building. The apartment was very comfortable for our family. Thanks for supplying a few items (milk, cereal, and wine) for the arrival as the grocery was closed by the time we got there.
Circus House Apartment Diane L - 2012-06-08
Thank you very much. We did have a lovely time and enjoyed the property very much. The Cavendish Cooks service was a life-saver. A brilliant addition!
Circus House Apartment Rebecca J - 2012-05-11

"Amazing apartment in a great location"

We stayed in the apartment for three nights pre-Easter and had a wonderful time. Everything about the apartment was perfect for us (a family of 2 adults and 3 children) - the location, the size, the decor. Thanks for a fabulous stay.

Circus House Apartment Kath M-J - 2012-04-12

Apartment is very well furnished, decorated and equipped with everything we needed. Service really helpful in meeting us earlier than expected.

Fantastic central location looking over the Circus at the front and Assembly Rooms at the back. Parking might tricky in high season but we had no problems parking close to the apartment. Would definitely recommend Bath Holiday Rentals and this apartment.

Circus House Apartment Hilary - 2012-02-16
We did enjoy our time at Circus House Apartment. The rooms were very comfortable and we had everything we needed, including some basic food supplies which were very nice to find. Parking was a big problem, as we spent a lot of time driving around looking for a space. But the apartment was nice and superbly located for walking around Bath. I can definitely recommend working with Bath Holiday Rentals.
Circus House Apartment Katie G - 2012-02-16
Oh, how our family enjoyed our two stays at Circus House last month (And it was January...in England, no less!). Not knowing quite what to expect, we were at once charmed by the beautiful textures, soothed by the harmonious tones and tasteful period details, and enthralled by the views. Sipping our morning coffee in the dining room overlooking the glorious tree-lined Circus is one of life's great pleasures, to be sure. When time allowed us to prolong the pleasure, we would simply "retire" to the lovely French style velvet sofas in the adjoining living room, coffee (and coco) in hand, where most of a morning could be happily spent playing chess, reading, relaxing.

Not that the other rooms in the apartment are to be avoided or overlooked in any way: as someone who loves to cook, even on vacation, I was most impressed by the small but smartly renovated and thoughtfully equipped kitchen (again, with lovely views and plenty of light). The master bedroom is very generous in size with a great big dare I say "California king-sized" bed? (we are from San Francisco, California!) Could swear that's what it was, with a great big enveloping sumptuous duvet to match. Children's bedroom small but lovely and cozy down the hallway, at the end of which sits the lovely designer-quality bathroom with luxurious fixtures, yet another mini oasis in which to "bathe" away the worries of the world. The ability to walk to just about anything Bath has to offer in a matter of minutes is of course a huge bonus - the Circus is a fantastic orientation, especially when just getting acquainted with the city. The Royal Crescent and Victoria Park can be reached in a matter of minutes, as can many fine restaurants, shops and other sites of interest. Stay here you cannot go wrong!!!
Circus House Apartment The Crocker Family - 2012-01-13

Belatedly (due to moving again and settling in and back and forth to London...) to say that we loved the apartment. It was very exciting to be the first guests. Everything was extremely comfortable and lovely. The only comments would refer to the kitchen and the choice of timber surround in the sink area. This is very hard to protect. We were rigorous about wiping it and drying it but it was inevitable that it would get stained in time.


We would and will heartily recommend the apartment and your company. We truly appreciated your helpful, upbeat attitude during what was a very trying time for us.
