11 Southcot Place is an absolute gem providing luxury self catering accommodation within a Georgian Terrace in the heart of Bath. Have a peaceful & relaxing stay and enjoy all that the city has to offer within easy walking distance.

With close proximity to Bath Spa station, shops, restaurants, cafes and local attractions this is the perfect place to stay and make your base.



The accommodation is a Grade II Listed Georgian maisonette situated on a very quiet street but less than 3 minutes walk from Bath Spa station and Bath city centre shops, restaurants and cafes.



The apartment has been refurbished to a very high standard and offers spacious accommodation arranged over 2 floors covering a very spacious 90m2.

The property offers two generous bedrooms; the first has a kingsize bed and the second is super flexible in nature with a kingsize bed together with an unobtrusive single bed.

There is a large period lounge with two large sofas and a large HDTV. A separate fully fitted kitchen/ dining area has all the modern appliances you need so you can dine with gorgeous views over the garden and Bath.



There is a modern shower-room with a power shower and under floor heating, plus there is an additional cloakroom with WC.

You will find the apartment well laid out and warm with everything available to make this a memorable stay. We provide luxury cotton bed linen and fluffy white towels during your stay.

11 Southcot Place is the perfect place to start your self catering break in Bath.

The space
The city view apartment is arranged over the first and second floor of 11 Southcot Place.

Access via the front door of the property leads to the communal hallway. From here the apartment has its own private entrance. The first floor living area provides an extremely comfortable and welcoming space for 4 to 5 people with large sofas. Entertainment is provided by a 50" UHD Smart TV. A mesh network has been installed to ensure maximum possible wifi bandwidth throughout the property, provided free of charge.

For meal times the Kitchen/Dining Area has views overlooking the rear garden and out towards Bath city centre and the nearby Bathwick Hill, a popular spot for walkers. The Kitchen is fully equipped with induction hob, electric oven, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave oven, extractor fan, toaster and kettle.

On the mezzanine between the 2 floors there is a modern bathroom with large walk in shower and powerful shower, with wash basin and WC. Between the stairwell entrance and the first floor there is a convenient utility room with a second WC. The utility also houses an iron and ironing board, and travel cot for guest use.

As part of its refurbishment, underfloor heating was fitted to the bathroom and efficient radiators everywhere else. There are fully automatic heating circuits that ensure the two floors are warm and toasty when required but not oppressively so overnight.

The Top Floor has two large double bedrooms. The bedrooms have high quality, extremely comfortable Vi-Spring beds with crisp white cotton bedding. All rooms have a minimalist feel and are finished with hand-made linen curtains and /or roman blinds. There is plenty of storage space with a chest of drawers and a hanging rail to each bedroom. A hairdryer is also provided for your use.


Bedroom 1 - Kingsize bed and Single bed
Bedroom 2 - Kingsize bed


Whilst this is a great space, the staircases (without stairgates and with wide gaps between stanchions), could present particular challenges to those with mobility problems and potentially for families with small children.

Please feel free to contact us to clarify any potential issues.

Guest access
Guest Access
Whilst this is a great space, the property is over 200 years old and the walls, floors and ceilings reflect this with many being uneven; we think this adds to the character and charm of the place as you really appreciate its age. There are 2 indoor staircases to each apartment and stepped access to the garden. None of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor. This could present particular challenges to those with mobility problems and potentially for families with very small children. Please feel free to contact us to clarify any potential issues beforehand.

Garden Access
The Garden Apartment has sole use of the rear garden. We have tried to create a Mediterranean feel as to us it feels like an Italian roof terrace (clearly only when the sun is shining!). It is a wonderful spot for breakfast or morning coffee as it catches the morning sun beautifully. Please note that the walls present minimal edge protection against a significant fall. Consequently guests must take care when in the garden. Please do not lean over or sit on the walls and ensure that children are suitably supervised at all times. Please note that guests use the rear garden at their own risk.

Other things to note
No.11 Southcot Place consists of two self-contained, two-bedroomed duplex apartments in the same building. The upper apartment is called City View and the lower is the Garden Apartment. The property is run by MiPAD BATH. We are an experienced Holiday Let / Serviced Accommodation provider in the Bath area and our aim is to make your stay as pleasant and stress-free as possible. We pride ourselves in our level of service, attention to detail and quality of accommodation offered.

Local Area Information

Widcombe


Widcombe is a thriving community with excellent facilities and services. On the south-eastern fringes of Bath city centre, the area is only 1 or 2 minutes walk from both Southcot Place and Bath Spa Train Station / Southgate Shopping Centre..

Expect a warm welcome from our local Widcombe traders. The Parade has loads to offer whatever your fancy. Come and visit.

We are perfectly situated to enjoy the city of Bath, the surrounding countryside and all of the local attractions.

If visiting for the first time – the must sees are the Roman Baths, No1 Royal Crescent, The Circus, Bath Abbey, Victoria Art Gallery, Holbourne Museum, the American museum, and Bath Fashion Museum. There are two excellent theatres: The Ustinov and There Royal.

There are lots of great places to eat. Our favourites are, the Garricks Head pub at the very centre of Bath, the King William Pub & Dining Rooms on London Road, The Hare & Hounds at the top of Landsdown Hill, The Marlborough Tavern at the end of Marlborough Buildings and the Pig just outside of Bath in Hunstrete. Notably the Scollopshell has just been named as Bath’s best Fish and Chips. For vegetarians and vegan diners try The Acorn Kitchen Restaurant, The Green Rocket Cafe or for authentic Indian street food visit Chaiwalla. Bath is also a city for coffee lovers with plenty of independent coffee shops. Try Mus in Widcombe or the The Thoughtful Bread Company in the city centre.

For special occasions there are: Bath Priory, Lucknam Park, Allium Brasserie and the Royal Crescent Hotel.

For picnics, tennis, crazy golf or ice skating (in December only), visit the Royal Victoria Park. It is a great space for general strolling and for those seeking a great playground for younger children.

Just outside of Bath there are a number of great venues. These include Dyrham Park, Westonbirt Arboretum, Bath Races, the Royal Bath & West Showground and Lansdown Golf Club.

For those that like the great outdoors we are situated just hundreds of metres from the Rivor Avon, the Avon & Kennet Canal, the Cotswold Way and Bath Skyline. Two favourite activities of ours are walking on the circular Kelston Hill walk or walking/cycling along the two-tunnels cycle path.

For those that appreciate the finest we have local chef Richard Bertinet and his cookery school where you can learn to bake the best bread and then marry this with the finest cheese from award winning Bath Soft Cheese company.

The shopaholics are very well catered for with a wide range of city centre shops surrounding Milsom Street together with the relatively new Southgate shopping center. Those prepared to travel further to shop might wish to visit Clarkes village shopping, or the outlet centers at Swindon and Biscester.

If you feel like sight-seeing further afield then you could visit places such as the Cotswolds, Glastonbury, Wells, Bristol and visit attractions such as Stourhead, Stonehenge, Longleat Safari Park, Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge, the Mendips, the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons, Chew Valley Lakes, the local scuba diving center in Vobster, as well as local caving and pot holing etc.

For transport Bath is very well served by Great Western Railway, First Group Bus Service or a number of different taxi companys. For those wishing to find out where the wind takes them Virgin Balloons is one of a number of hot air balloon operators that takes off from either Royal Victoria Park or near to the Globe Pub.

After a ‘full-on’ day we recommend nothing better than the ‘healing waters’ at the Bath Spa and a tipple in the Gin Bar or a late night drink at our favourite bar – Opium just off Great Pulteney Street.
