The Mews House home swap

The Mews House is a quirky, two-bedroomed house, a two minute walk from Royal Victoria Park, a ten minute walk the Royal Crescent and just over a mile to the centre of the stunning UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath. A car is available but, unless you wish to travel further afield, its not really needed as everything is walkable - including five very good pubs within a fifteen minute walk too - oh and for foodies, the Michelin starred Bath Priory is a minute or so from our door! The house is along a private lane and parking is always available in the cul de sac the lane adjoins. The house is open plan downstairs with a utility room to the side. Upstairs, there' are two double bedrooms, as well as a double sofa bed in the living room - which, being a mews house, is also on the upper level. The living room itself is a lovely large, comfortable and relaxing space with a high, wooden beamed ceiling. The bathroom is also on this level - although we do have an additional toilet downstairs. While we don't have a big grassy garden, we do have a lovely walled courtyard - big enough for a table and four chairs, bbq, water feature and a myriad of pots and plants - so very secluded and perfect for throwing open the French doors and having a glass of wine... We also have a bike (women's), which you are welcome to use as we have some glorious cycle tracks, including the recently opened two tunnels, near us - there is also a cycle hire place nearby. There's now a bus direct from Bristol airport to Bath which takes one hour and, conveniently, stops just a ten minute walk fromour house. Taxis take 45 minutes and cost about four times more - so the extra 15 mins is a worthwhile saving!
As you will see in some of the pictures we also have two beautiful cats - they have unlimited access to the outside via their cat flap and while you were staying we would ask you to feed them twice a day and, hopefully, give them some love and attention. They are both rescue cats and not used to very young children and so, while children are very welcome in our house ( there's a fabulous children's park a five minute walk away at the Royal Victoria Park) we would ask that they are a little bit older, used to - and respectful of - animals.

About the location

Famous for its Roman Baths, the Georgian Royal Crescent and the new Thermal Spa, Bath is a city of beauty, culture, shopping and fun! Bath is not huge that you will feel overwhelmed yet there is so much to do and see. Set within six hills - hence the Romans adopting the locale - Bath is only 85 mins on the train to London and 15mins to Bristol, the green capital of Europe 2015. A car is available ( Golf Mk 4) and we are only an hour's drive to the nearest sea at Weston Supermare and Oxford, the glorious Cotswolds, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, Salisbury and South Wales are all within an hour's drive too. You'll love it - we do!
