Pickle says…We were very lucky to have been staying in Bath with Hiplets over half term. We have visited Bath a couple of times before and loved it. It is such a beautiful place. This time we stayed right in the centre…
We stayed in Monmouth House, a gorgeous Georgian house on Monmouth Street, a few minutes easy walk from the centre of Bath where the Abbey, Roman Baths and shops are.
It is in an absolutely brilliant position. We parked in Charlotte Street Long Stay car park, which costs £8.50 for 24 hours and is about a ten minute (or less) walk away. You can pull up opposite the house briefly to unload / load your car.
The house is modern, light and airy with real quality fittings and furnishings. The only darker room was the bedroom downstairs.
There were six of us staying, Mummy, teens aged 18 and 15, Nan and Grandad and me! I am 5. big sis and boyfriend Mimi and Lewis (2 adults) joined us too for part of our stay.
The house sleeps 11 but 6 of those beds are bunk beds.
The house layout is: Floor Two – One double bedroom, one bathroom with bath, shower and loo.
Floor one – One main bedroom with double and single bed. One bedroom with bunk beds.
Ground Floor – Large living / kitchen area. Front door opens straight into this space from the street.
Lower Ground Floor – Bedroom with two sets of bunk beds, bathroom with shower and loo.
We had a couple of issues with the house, we would recommend it for older children, as there are fairly steep curved staircases to each level. I did slip twice (No real biggie, I was ok, but they were steep for me).
We understand the house is rented to a lot of single adults, which it is perfect for. For a family, however, it would benefit from a comfy lounge area with sofas. The only seating was in the dining room area, which was a little uncomfortable after a while.
Renting Monmouth House would have cost us £250 per night for the entire property. This rises to £265 per night in the summer months, which is incredible value for money if you are a large group / family.
