In the golden heart of classic Georgian Bath is a shimmering apartment for two with a tranquil terraced courtyard garden. Bask in the glow of this beautifully decorated home with handsome Georgian proportions and elegant period details. Surrounded by historic architecture, galleries, museums, fine restaurants and gorgeous boutiques, this wonderful apartment has the Midas touch.

Russel Garden Apartment

The large elegant living room has lofty ceilings, ornate cornices, an antique chandelier and gorgeous muted gold papered walls. Tall sash windows with working shutters overlook the smart historic Queensbury hotel on a listed Georgian terrace complete with black iron railings and decorative balconies. Two large handsome sofas and a comfortable armchair surround a large grey marble fireplace with mirror over. There is a TV with DVD and a selection of films, books and games.

The bedroom is romantic, tranquil and similarly decorated in gold tones, with a 6'bed (which can be made up as a twin room with two 3' beds.) An antique wardrobe sits in a wide alcove with a central chest of drawers and an easy chair and iPod docking clock radio placed by the window with its sweeping drapes.

The apartment continues down three steps to a delightful curved lobby lined with bookish wallpaper, with doors into the bathroom, utility cupboard and kitchen.

The contemporary bathroom is fully tiled in travertine with a bath (with shower over), a hand basin and WC. There is a separate utility cupboard housing a combined washing machine and dryer, domestic appliances and shelf space.

The kitchen combines the old with the new, with an antique pine table and contemporary chairs to seat 4, in front of an exposed bath stone chimney breast. Surrounding this is a contemporary glossy cream and grey kitchen with a well organised array of crockery and cutlery. The kitchen provides an induction hob, an electric oven, a microwave, dishwasher, and a large Smeg fridge and small separate freezer. French doors lead out to a charming terraced courtyard garden.

The garden is a green sanctuary with bath stone walls, broad stone steps and mature trees and shrubs on 3 levels. You can hear the gentle chimes of The Christchurch on Julian Road. A store-room provides two folding outdoor chairs and a table for alfresco dining.

Testimonials

We had a wonderful stay in Bath at the Russel Street apartment. This property is even better than described. Location is fantastic. Beautifully decorated with all up to date appliances. Sue is so welcoming and warm. The welcome package included basics and treats. Roomy and relaxing. She gave us great suggestions for dining. We were impressed with The Ivy and The Circus. This was our best lodging on our trip in England.
Russel Garden Apartment Julie Z - 2019-07-10
This was a perfect place to stay. The apartment is immaculate and everything works well. Everything is good quality, from the welcome pack to the bath towels. We were met by Sue, the owner, who showed us round and also gave us some useful tips about the area. The apartment is very comfortable and quiet and perfectly placed in a lovely peaceful and interesting part of Bath.
Russel Garden Apartment Sue L - 2019-07-07
“What a perfect apartment in a great location! Situated in Upper Bath, the apartment is spacious, comfortable, clean - and the outdoor space is a welcome retreat in the city. It's very close to all the things you'd want to see and do in Bath - from the Tasting Rooms and Assembly Rooms a stone's throw away to the Roman Baths and shopping areas, to the Jane Austen centre and the Royal Crescent. The space is beautifully decorated with all mod cons. The welcome pack was a nice treat. Thanks Alexa and Sue for your hospitality and top-notch service - we will certainly be back!”
Russel Garden Apartment Juliette - 2019-07-04
Wonderful place. Felt like we were living in the Georgian style and close to downtown, quaint pubs, and lovely parks and churches. Highly recommended!
Russel Garden Apartment Kathryn - 2019-06-10
“A lovely well proportioned and pleasantly furnished apartment in a quiet street and ideal for town centre. Would definitely book again.”
Russel Garden Apartment Bob - 2019-05-31
“My wife and I enjoyed the most wonderful stay at Alexa's apartment in Bath for a week in early May. The apartment is everything that Alexa describes and more. It is beautiful, spacious, and well laid out. It is only a short walk from restaurants and important cultural destinations in the city, but also just up the hill enough to be quiet and provide an oasis away from the hustle and bustle in town. We loved it, and hope to return sometime soon. Also many thanks to Sue for providing us with so many helpful details about the apartment and the city. We enjoyed meeting you.”
Russel Garden Apartment Mark & Joanna - 2019-05-23
This lovely, well appointed, comfortable flat is in the perfect location for a couple to experience the extraordinary Bath sights. There is a shop only 5 minutes walk away for all the essentials, including quality meats. Gorgeous parks, the circus and crescent are equally close by and excellent restaurants abound. The gracious owner will meet you and give you all the information you need for a memorable holiday in this must see city. We especially appreciated the thoughtful welcome goodies she provided.
Russel Garden Apartment Patrick - 2019-05-13
“I’ve just spent 2 superb weeks in the flat, revelling in its elegance, its charm, its marvellous garden, all its up-to-the minute fittings and its proximity to the centre of town. Fantastic, unbeatable value and huge charm. Light, clean, warm - a very classy home from home.”
Russel Garden Apartment Simon Callow - Actor, London - 2019-03-27
We have booked with Bath Holiday Rentals for over 5 years. We most recently stayed at the Russell Garden Flat and it was exceptional. Fantastic location and the flat was in excellent condition. Customer service at Bath Holiday Rentals is second to none. Caring and thoughtful. I would highly recommend - best business in town. 5/5 stars. Keep it up and see you in 2019!
Russel Garden Apartment Oliver - 2018-12-09
“We had an amazing time in Bath and the Garden Apartment was absolutely super and couldn't have been in a perfect location to explore Bath City. It was very tastefully decorated, so cosy and it really was home from home.
Russel Garden Apartment Sue - 2018-10-30
“Walking distance to everything interesting in bath. Gorgeous space, lovely bed and extra touches on arrival. Parking permit supplied was really handy. Would recommend!”
Russel Garden Apartment Suzanne - 2018-10-11
Just to let you know that We enjoyed our stay at Russell Street. The Flat was Great (as always ! ),and there were no problems. Thanks once again.
Russel Garden Apartment Frank and Angela - 2018-09-26
We absolutely loved our stay at the Russel Garden Apartment. It was comfortable, quiet, elegantly appointed, and conveniently located. The check in went quickly and smoothly, and we felt very welcomed. We enjoyed excellent communication prior to our arrival, and never needed to contact anyone during our stay because we had no problems. If we return to Bath we would happily stay here again. It is a lovely place.
Russel Garden Apartment Yen - 2018-09-25
“I’d rather not say how nice Alexa’s place is, cause then everyone will know! About 5 mins walk from the sights of Bath which was lovely. Super there is car park permit as we parked the car and walked everywhere.”
Russel Garden Apartment Kerry - 2018-09-19
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Your apartment is perfect in every way and it’s location is great. We had the best, relaxing stay.
Russel Garden Apartment Will - 2018-07-23
“Beautiful flat in walking distance of many attractions and the City centre. Clean, well equipped and with pretty garden space. We stayed a week a really enjoyed our stay.”
Russel Garden Apartment Christine - 2018-07-13
Excellent location in central Bath and parking always available outside or very nearby
Good restaurants and pubs on the doorstep
Comfortable apartment although a little old fashioned in terms of the furniture in the bedroom in particular and could do with a little spruce up in terms of the living room sofas
Very good kitchen facilities and lovely to have a little outdoor space
Excellent service from Bathholiday rentals who we have used before and can thoroughly recommend
Russel Garden Apartment Anne - 2018-06-04
Russell Street apartment was clean, well stocked with every home comfort. Large rooms & lovely back patio area through the French doors in the kitchen. Very quiet with no noise from the apartments above & below. Great WiFi signal and the welcome pack of wine, milk & special "Frank's biscuits" made us settle in very easily. We were welcomed for our earlier check in by a very courteous lady called Sarah who explained everything from how to work the heating to all the amenities in the apartment. Ideal location for a short walk into the city centre. Lovely different types of shops & full of history. Bath is also an excellent base for visiting the local area. Would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to family & friends.
Russel Garden Apartment Elaine and Pat - 2017-10-20
The location of the apartment was excellent , a short walk to the centre of town , it was equiptd with everything a traveller could need .
Restaurants in easy walking distance .
Having a resident car parking ticket wa great We did not move our car in the time we were there .
The staff were very helpful & obliging , we actually checked in about 1pm which was a big help as we got to Bath quite early
I would highly recommend the apartment
Russel Garden Apartment John - 2017-09-24

Thanks, and we will certainly recommend the Apartment to our Friends,Family and Associates.!

It is one of the Very Best of your properties,no complaints, oh, except for the very minor Grouse over the door keys/locks,...easily fixed with WD 40 ,no doubt. !! An Iconic Location,..Great Period Features too.! Will love to come again.
Russel Garden Apartment Frank and Angela - 2017-09-20
A very elegant property - It was lovely having outside space with courtyard garden . I would certainly recommend this property to my friends .
Russel Garden Apartment Sue - 2017-06-27
My daughter, Gwyneth, and I recently stayed (20-25 Feb.) at your ground floor flat on 12 Russel Street in Bath. I write to thank you for offering such a delightful place for us! Just a few of its stellar qualities include:

--nearness to the center of a bustling Bath
--just enough of a garden to delight
--rooms that were both stylishly pleasing and clean
--historically interesting touches--ceiling molding and outer limestone construction
--easy access to the street
--up-to-date appliances and touches (like the heated rack for our bath towels!)

I wish I owned such a flat; that's how taken with it I was.
Thank you once again for the part you played in our wonderful week-long foray.
Russel Garden Apartment Beth - 2017-03-02
‘Our stay at Russell Garden Apartment was everything it promised to be. Fantastic location, charming and spotlessly clean property, beautifully furnished and equipped – and even parking in the centre of Bath was not a problem. The staff at Bath Holiday Rentals were very efficient and helpful throughout. Will not hesitate to return’.
Russel Garden Apartment Steve - 2017-01-30
On behalf of my wife and I, we just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying at Russell Street. It was a fantastic flat, great location, very clean and really added to our whole experience in Bath. Thank you. We will certainly be back next year.
Russel Garden Apartment Oliver - 2016-12-05
The Russel Garden Apartment was perfect for my extended 26 night stay in Bath. I have no hesitation in recommending it most highly for its ideal location, high quality of comfort and amenities. I was totally satisfied with the apartment and with the standard of service provided by your company in handling my stay – efficient but never obtrusive.
Russel Garden Apartment Philip - 2016-12-03
From the initial booking inquiries to the introduction to the apartment when we arrived, to each day and night if our stay, we couldn't have asked for a better location to spend leisure time in Bath. The apartment is located mid-hill, which put us a quick walk from city center, but out of the crush of thousands of Christmas Market visitors arriving each day.

The apartment was very well appointed, but felt comfortable and easy to use. Although we didn't cook while there, we appreciated the convenient kitchen for mornings spent over coffee and yogurt and afternoons with wine and cheese.

The bed was VERY comfortable (which made it a little difficult to start our days too early), and the living room allowed the one of us who is an earlier riser to read, watch television or look at the computer without waking the later riser.

As we brought limited clothing and had just spent 5 days in London, we made good use of the washer/dryer combo, too.

Alexa, Olivia and Sara could not have been more welcoming or accommodating with the restaurant tips, meeting us at the house, extending our stay another day (because it was just too lovely to leave). We felt we'll-supported.

This house goes on our list of properties to return to in the future!
Russel Garden Apartment Belinda - 2016-12-02
We really enjoyed staying in the Russel Garden Apartment. The rooms are comfortable and well decorated with some appropriately period-looking pieces of furniture. The kitchen and bathroom were both clean and everything worked. Even the shower!! That's unusual in the UK.

The situation of the apartment is excellent for walking to restaurants and Bath's many attractions.

The only minor disappointment was that we couldn't use the sitting out space as it was so wet.

We would definitely rent this apartment again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Bath.
Russel Garden Apartment John & Carol - 2016-07-25
Very happy with the apartment, decorated and furnished very pleasantly with the lovely enclosed and walled garden, plus all kitchen and other utensils you could wish for.
The situation was nice and quiet but only a five minute walk to the high street so ideal.
Comfy sofas and bed, were sorry to not have longer stay.
Russel Garden Apartment John & Jeni - 2016-05-11
My husband and I stayed for a week at the Russel Garden Apartment and consider it the best short-term rental we’ve had (among about twenty)—well equipped and maintained, spotlessly clean, and exceptionally well decorated in a timeless style. In addition, the location is ideal for walking anywhere in central Bath. Kudos to Bath Holiday Rentals.
Russel Garden Apartment Judith - 2016-03-27
Loved it! Great location, welcoming and comfortable. Would definitely book again!
Russel Garden Apartment Gill - 2016-03-22
Just to let you know that Angela and I had a Wonderful time in Bath, and the Apartment in Russel Street, Totaly lived uup to our expectations. Lots of Lovely Period Appointments, and an Ideal situation Too. !!!(Especially for The Jane Austen Festival. ! ). We will certainly consider returning here
Russel Garden Apartment Frank - 2015-09-23
I really enjoyed my stay at Russell Apt , the walk into town is so close .the apartment itself is very comfortable , very clean and easy access to everything , Kitchen , bedroom and living room all very nice.I will see you next year
Russel Garden Apartment Joan - 2015-09-09
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful city. Russell Garden apartment was a great choice for location as well as comfort. So close to the city centre yet not on a busy road. The apartment itself was furnished to a high standard and was great to return to after our busy days.
Russel Garden Apartment Kath - 2015-05-25
many thanks for your email. We really enjoyed our stay at Russel Garden Apartment - it's a perfect location, wonderful sitting room and very comfortable bed. We'd certainly consider staying there again, but you do have so many other attractive properties on your books that we might have to try another one too.
Russel Garden Apartment John G - 2015-02-23
The apartment was absolutely gorgeous, beautifully furnished and decorated. The location was perfect for walking everywhere. After parking the car, using the supplied parking permit, we didn't use the car again. We were lucky with the weather and were able to make use of the lovely courtyard garden. The booking process was easy and efficient. We are already planning our next stay in Bath and will certainly be returning to Russel Garden apartment. Thank you for helping to make this break one to remember.
Russel Garden Apartment Sandra F - 2014-09-25
I really had a fantastic stay. The apartment is beautifully furnished and the kitchen was more than adequate. I stayed there with my son who is a student at the University of Bath and enjoyed the space that the apartment provided as well as the fact that it felt like being at home. This apartment is definitely one I would look at booking into if I go to Bath again. And I will most certainly look to your company for any reservations I make in the future. Ray was fantastic in taking in my last minute booking and having everything organized in time. I have also posted a comment on Trip Advisor for the benefit of other travelers.
Russel Garden Apartment Chiran S - 2014-09-10
We enjoyed our time in Bath especially in Russel Garden Apartment. We didn´t
miss any equipment in kitchen and bathroom. In the morning and evening we liked to sit
in the little garden or the well furnished living room.
It was quite nice, absolutely!
Russel Garden Apartment Jochen - 2014-08-10
We have a great time in Bath and the apartment was absolutely perfect! We were lucky with the weather so the garden was a plus.

The bed was extremely comfortable and the lounge a delight. It was also nice to be a short walk out from the hustle and bustle of the city but close enough to make it easy to enjoy everything. All in all a lovely stay
Russel Garden Apartment Nick S - 2014-07-24

We had a lovely week in Bath. The apartment was just perfect and in such a great location. There was so much to do that we only went out in our car once which made the holiday very relaxing. We will definitely be back soon.

Russel Garden Apartment Clare T - 2014-07-21

We have returned to this Flat for a 2nd time and it is still as fabulous.

Everything is of great quality and spotless. The Location is fantastic and the car stayed in the same spot all week. Great Company to deal with.

Russel Garden Apartment Brenda - 2014-07-03
The photos don't really do this apartment justice. It has a spacious living room with two large sofas, large bedroom with very comfy bed and good quality bedding and linen. The kitchen is well-equipped and the little extras provided (wine, chocolates, cereals etc.) were much appreciated. The courtyard at the back is pleasant but didn't get much sun during our stay in April. The parking permit is also a real bonus. We would definitely stay there again. In fact, what am I saying - it was dreadful and you'll hate it. Hah!, now it'll be available next time we want to stay!
Russel Garden Apartment Sueski - 2014-05-16

We enjoyed our six nights at the Russel Street Apartment. The location was great, and the apartment well designed and appointed. The bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom ample. We were met upon arrival in Bath as arranged, appreciated the kitchen provisions, and complete instruction book for the flat. A couple of Bath highlights for us were the green grocer on River Street with farm fresh produce and Ora Et Lebora, a shop near the Abbey that serves a medieval tasting dinner on Thursday evenings.

Russel Garden Apartment Nancy K - 2014-03-31
Thank you so much to you and your team for organising yet another short break in Bath. The quality of the apartment was exceptional - and I loved all the little touches you create to make the place so welcoming and homely. I will be sure to be back in touch for my next stay.
Russel Garden Apartment Phil - 2014-02-21

We have recently returned from spending a month at the Russell Garden Flat in Bath. We do not feel that you could find a better place to stay! The flat was perfect with just the right amount of space and had every convenience you could want.

It was very quiet and the location was excellent. We were within a five minute walk of a pub and a grocery store, fifteen minutes brought us to the city center and twenty minutes to the bus and train station.

The terraced garden was a real bonus and despite the time of year we enjoyed a few meals outside and were even lucky enough to see the hot-air balloons sailing by.

The flat was very clean and Charlotte, who came on a weekly basis, made sure it stayed that way. Thanks Charlotte for all your help and kind hospitality! We would not hesitate to recommend this flat and we would love to return. Both the city of Bath and this flat are simply fabulous.

Russel Garden Apartment Lorraine & Don - 2013-09-18
We stayed at the Russel Garden Apartment in June 2013. The apartment is very well equipped and well maintained, and the location is very convenient, within easy walking distance to all the major attractions. The garden is a definite plus (if the weather cooperates).Bath Holiday Rentals were extremely professional and obliging-I recommend them highly.
Russel Garden Apartment Graham - 2013-06-20
We had a wonderful time staying in the apartment. It was very spacious and comfortable for two people. The mix of modern and older fashioned furnishings were beautiful. It was very clean. It's in a great location, within walking distance of city centre and easy to find. We really enjoyed being close to the main attractions in Bath and in the perfect location to experience such an incredible city. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks!
Russel Garden Apartment Marcia E - 2013-05-16
We very much enjoyed the lovely flat in Russel Street and appreciated the attention to detail. It's so rare to find a well-equipped kitchen in a holiday rental. Cooking is our hobby and we were able to indulge this - and resist the temptation to eat out every day! Bath remains as lovely and vibrant as ever. We shall be back soon - and will certainly be using your Company again.
Russel Garden Apartment Terry & Jan - 2013-05-01

We recently stayed in a Bath Holiday rentals property – the lovely Russel Gardens for a three night long week end. Beautifully decorated, stylishly furnished, spacious, clean and very well equipped with a generous welcome pack. It was like living in a glossy magazine feature home for three days.

We loved it and would stay with Bath Holiday rentals again; looking forward to experiencing one of their other unique properties.

Russel Garden Apartment Michelle & John - 2012-12-13
Alexa and Bath Holiday Rentals always provide excellent service along with their manicured properties. My in-laws have had two extremely comfortable stays with BHR; I would not hesitate to recommend their rentals
Russel Garden Apartment Beth D - 2012-10-12

We stayed at the Russel Garden Apartment . The location is quiet yet central with easy access to the shops, Circus andRoyal Crescent. Beautiful walks throughVictoriaPark leading on from the Crescent remind you how rich, varied and beautifulBathcan be. We visited the gastro pubs and restaurants in the area around the apartment and were delighted with the quality of food .

The flat was very comfortable and luxurious especially the bed and fine linens. Every consideration had been taken to equip the apartment with good quality soft furnishings and kitchen goods. We loved the courtyard garden which is a rare commodity in a ground floor flat in Bath. We will certainly use this flat again and look forward to the return trip.

Russel Garden Apartment Diane & Bob - 2012-09-20
Our apartment was fantastic. The apartment was stunning. We couldn't fault a thing. Thank you for everything.
