The Rooms

Ground floor

Once inside, the entrance hall leads into the “chairman’s turret”, Which has an original wide, carpeted, stone staircase that was designed for taking people to the Roman Baths in a sedan chair straight from their rooms. If someone in the house was ill they would be wrapped in warm towels and a sedan chair would arrive at their bedroom ready to whisk them off for some spa treatment! The entrance hall has now been fully restored and renovated and presents a warm and welcoming aspect to visitors on arrival.

The main dining room

This tastefully decorated dining room with a majestic dining table seating 14, period chandeliers and a exquisite Regency fireplace. This is the perfect setting for a romantic supper or more formal dinner party. For guests overcome by an excess of emotion or fine fare, there is a secret entrance to a shower/toilet room behind a hidden door!

The main kitchen

This long and well-lit kitchen was the centre of activity for cooks employed in the past. It offers an excellent outlook over the period properties surrounding the Admiral’s House and will make your dinner party preparation a pleasure.

The kitchen is tastefully decorated and fitted throughout with solid granite work tops and a refurbished oak floor. The working Aga contributes an authentically country house note to the kitchen, which also has a dishwasher, fridge freezer and cutlery and tableware settings for 14.

Back bedroom – The Forum

This twin-bedded room has a cosy, tranquil ambience. It is tastefully furnished and close to the main kitchen if you get those midnight munchies!

Library

This is a very relaxing room with period furniture and fittings including comfy leather chairs and a marble fireplace. A perfect setting for getting through the Sunday papers in peace!

You can feel quite the gentleman of the house, sitting in front of an open fire or at the writing desk. You can run your own household, or plan your next sea voyage.

Sitting room

This large, comfortable room stretches the entire width of the house. It has three generous sofas, a splendid antique coffee table and for your more modern requirements, a large TV with Sky multi-channel services.

The focal point is certainly the grand marble fireplace. The perfect place to have drinks with a party of friends or to unwind with someone special. The sitting room has four full length windows which look out over the attractive period houses for which Bath is so famous. Appropriately, grand sparkling chandeliers light up your evenings and add to the sense of history.

Bathroom 2

A bright bathroom with a luxuriously large bath. All the bathrooms in the house have limestone floors with basins, toilets and mirror showers.

The second kitchen/breakfast room

This second kitchen diner is less formal than the main kitchen with a table that seats six. It is well equipped with a modern electric hob and oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine, microwave and has views of St Margret’s church at the back of the Admiral’s House. This kitchen is ideal for informal breakfasts or late night snacks being just a short struggle from the bedrooms!

Front bedroom 1 – The Landsdown

This spacious double room has quaint picture windows with views of the period properties aound the Admiral’s House. This room has a noticeably downward sloping floor, a rather quirky feature common to many old properties. This is caused by the natural settling process of the area over about 300 years and contributes to the period charm of the room.

Front bedroom 2 – The Abbey

This twin-bedded room is smaller than bedroom 1 but very comfortable and tastefully decorated. It enjoys warm light and pleasant views over The Paragon.

Back bedroom – The Ralph Allen

This beautiful room easily accomodates two single beds. This room is furnished with items from the estate of Leo McKern (Horace Rumpole of “Rumpole of the Bailey” BBC TV fame).

The room has two large windows that frame the beds and provide views of the period properties.

Bathroom 3

All the bathrooms in the house have limestone floors with basins, toilets and mirror showers and are light and spacious.

Third/top floor

A beautiful balcony dominates this part of the house above a winding staircase leading to the two upper bedrooms. On a bright sunny day the light elegantly streams through the house from both a wall and ceiling window.

One of the rooms of this floor is reputedly haunted by an old lady in a rocking chair who has been seen on occasion so look out for our gentle ghost and report back any sightings!

The Circus & The Crescent

These two rooms complement each other and both enjoy natural light and excellent views over the green slopes of Bathampton Down and Solisbury hill (yes, the one Peter Gabriel sang about!).

One room has warm, colourful accents and the other has natural, organic tones. Both have double beds, chests of drawers and comfortable chairs.
