17 Lansdown CrescentBrochure Page. 69
A stunning, Grade I Listed luxury Georgian town house, a short walk from the city centre in one of Bath’s foremost crescents. On a quiet hillside with panoramic views of Bath, the Crescent looks out across a field, complete with grazing sheep, offering Wolsey Lodge B&B guests a rare contemporary taste of Georgian life plus a rural experience in an urban setting.
This six storey family home has been lovingly restored into a fabulous luxury city centre bed and breakfast establishment, keeping original features – including its own torch snuffer outside and its coach house.
The three B&B guest bedrooms are extremely spacious and individual. Each has its own private bathroom, complete with roll top bath. The basement room even has its own snooker room with full sized table. There are glorious views of the city and the lovely 100 foot garden, which guests may enjoy when the weather allows. Elegant drawing and withdrawing rooms are available to relax in and on-street parking can be arranged.
Your B&B Hosts
Rebecca and Robert turned their family home into a luxury city B&B a few years ago when their daughters ‘fled the nest’. Robert is a lawyer and Rebecca a professional reflexologist. They are extremely charming and welcoming Wolsey Lodge B&B hosts and are always happy to provide personal recommendations for local pubs and restaurants and make reservations if needed. Rebecca’s delicious cooked breakfasts, complete with freshly squeezed orange juice and homemade preserves will set her B&B guests up for the day.
Designated a World Heritage site, Bath itself is unique and the only place in Britain with naturally hot spa water. England’s most complete Georgian architecture, iconic visitor attractions, museums, fabulous boutique shops, street theatre, festivals and everything else this exciting city offers is but a short stroll away. The area surrounding Bath is steeped with gardens, historic houses and other tourist attractions – there is something here to interest everyone.
