Sir Walter Elliot’s House

Bath, Bath & N.E. Somerset
Bed & Breakfast

Period hand-printed wallpaper and marquina marble are among the remarkable features of this listed house... and breakfasts can be Austrian!


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Utterly wonderful hosts at this Grade I-listed house. On one of Bath’s finest Regency terraces, it has been so beautifully restored that the BBC filmed it for Persuasion; Jane Austen Society members often stay. Up several stairs are bedrooms flooded with light, two with views over Sydney Gardens, one with a bathroom in marquina marble, cherrywood and ebony. Have breakfast in the convivial family kitchen, or in the plant-filled conservatory. For the adventurous, Mechthild will serve an Austrian alternative – cold meats and cheeses, fresh rye breads and homemade cakes. Herrlich!

The B&B experience is akin to actually being the owner of a £3 million townhouse with your own staff. Something which most mere mortals will never achieve. Utterly charming staff, excellent hospitality in a wonderful Grade 1 listed Georgian townhouse situated in the heart of Bath. William & Harriet.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Julian Self

  • You're less than 100m from the Holburne Museum with its fascinating exhibitions, concerts, and of course a tasty restaurant for lunch or coffee!
  • Opposite the house is the entrance to Sydney Gardens leading to delightful level walks along the canal or for the more adventurous hike up to Sham Castle to get a view over the whole city!
  • Every Saturday the Bath Farmers Market takes place in Green Park Station - 15 or so minutes into town, and the Bath Christmas Market beginning the final week of November was the first in the country.
  • Bath is filled with exciting restaurants covering almost every conceivable cuisine and price range. Most are within a refreshing walking distance, to work up the appetite, and therefore light on the pocket should you return via taxi in your contentment!
