Sydney Retreat

These small cobbled streets off a main thoroughfare into Bath once provided stabling and carriage stores to grand houses. Now a row of neat architect designed modern homes, they retain some of their tucked away charm with the background buzz of the city just visible. This Bath holiday home arranged over 2 floors has been refurbished throughout in 2019 to be fresh and bright. The entrance lobby with coat hooks and a shoe rack leads into a smart well lit corridor with doors to a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite, a spacious shower room and a separate laundry and utility room. Upstairs is an open plan kitchen and living room and another twin (or double) bedroom. Light floods in from three Velux windows which are electronically controlled, each with a wall mounted remote.

The Ground Floor
The spacious double ground floor bedroom is decorated in shimmering greys and mauves and has a large window with views of Bathwick St Mary’s church. There are a couple of roomy bedside cabinets with drawers, along with a large alcove cupboard fitted with a hanging rail and deep storage shelves. The smart compact en-suite shower room is tiled in grey and silver stripes and has a corner shower, a hand-basin with storage under, a sensor operated illuminated mirror with shaving socket to one side and a WC.

On this floor is a large contemporary shower room with stylish patterned grey tiling and wall art. There is a large shower and long fitted bathroom unit incorporating a hand-basin, WC, storage cupboards and plenty of shelf space for toiletries. There is an additional open storage unit for towels or toiletries.

Next to this is a spacious laundry and utility room with a combined washing machine and dryer. This area stores 4 folding chairs with a small folding table stored on the landing for alternative indoor dining facilities for up to 4 people.

The First Floor
On the first floor is another large peaceful bedroom in plush grey and warm yellow with a striking rose feature wall and a large wall mounted TV opposite. Two single 3’ beds can zip and link to become a 6’ double. There is a small wardrobe with drawers under and a long console with storage baskets under and a chair.

The sunny citrus and warm grey living area has a deep bay window with views of the church, Bath stone terraces, mature trees and glimpses of the main thoroughfare. There are two large cosy sofas to seat 2 and 3 with tables for drinks. There is a wall mounted TV with Netflix as well as a DVD and a selection of films and Wi-Fi.

The ‘U’ shaped contemporary fitted kitchen in taupe and sparkled grey has a 4 ring gas hob, an electric oven, a microwave, a small dishwasher and a medium sized fridge above worktop level, along with a separate freezer. There is a breakfast bar with 4 stools and plenty of cupboard space stacked with fresh white crockery. The foldaway table can be set up in the lounge for dining for up to 4 should you prefer a table over the breakfast bar seating.

There is parking for 1 car (or 2 small cars) right out front the property. Alternatively the Bath Spa coach and train stations are a level 15-20 minute walk.

The house has been furnished to a high standard and we had all we needed for a pleasant stay (except the weather). Amazing location, will definitely use in future if we return
Sydney Retreat Daljeet - 2019-10-06
The property is fitted out to a very high standard, with comfortables beds, and within easy walking access to Bath, and convenient parking next to property.

Particularly appreciated the welcoming items, milk, cereals, tea coffee etc. (and the bottle of wine).

Altogether made for a very enjoyable stay for two couples, with convenience of one en-suite bedroom and separate bathroom with shower.

One minor point, the sofas could be a bit more comfortable.

Otherwise all ‘five star’
Sydney Retreat Tony - 2019-09-18
“Sydney Retreat was the perfect spot for our visit to Bath. The location is close to everything but you are on a very quiet street. Having a parking spot is also a big plus. The place was very clean and the decor and fixtures are high quality.”
Sydney Retreat Christopher - 2019-07-04
“Alexia is an excellent host and this property is outstanding. We arrived at midnight to find that the unit was lit, warm and our self check-in went smoothly. The apartment has been recently remodeled and renovated and is exactly as described in the listing. We found a delightful welcome hamper and even fresh milk in the fridge. The kitchen is quite complete and serious cooking may be done. China, cutlery and kitchen equipment is of high quality and appears to be quite new. Basic kitchen items like cooking oil, flour, salt, pepper, etc. were there. The design and decor is modern and comfortable. The rental is situated in a quiet location within easy walking distance of Bath and its many attractions; there is a convenience store close by and a good supermarket in the area. I can enthusiastically recommend this property to the Airbnb community and look forward to returning sometime in the not too distant future.”
Sydney Retreat Keith - 2019-06-26
A lovely very comfortable newly renovated Mews cottage, in convenient central location with parking outside the front door, and no expense spared with the interior.
We would definitely recommend!
Sydney Retreat Claire & Holly - 2019-05-03
"Great place in a brilliant location, just ten minutes walk from Bath Abbey and the centre of town. The Holburne museum is just around the corner. Light, bright and beautifully designed. Would definitely recommend."
Sydney Retreat James - 2019-03-07
