THE DUCHY: You could not choose a more beautiful or stately residence for your special occasion in Bath – whether you have come to Bath for a leisurely spa break or a once in a lifetime celebration, The Duchy will make your visit to Bath a wonderful and unique experience.  

The Duchy is a handsome Georgian townhouse with an amazing history.  For the last 100 years it was the Offices of the Duchy of Cornwall in Bath, where Prince Charles stayed on his many visits to this magical little city.  The present owners purchased the townhouse from the Duchy just a few years ago and carefully restored it to its present elegant state.  

This historic townhouse is located just off Great Pulteney Street, one of the most famous streets of Bath, and is only a short stroll from the Roman Baths, the Bath Abbey, and all the many excellent restaurants and cafés that Bath is known for.  

The Duchy offers both flexibility and  splendour for whatever occasion you may be planning for your visit to Bath, for it boasts both a magnificent Drawing Room with its  lovely “Withdrawing Room”, and a formal dining room and garden, providing a fabulous amount of space for entertaining.  

The stunning and perfectly equipped Kitchen is on the lower ground floor and leads into the Formal Dining Room, which in turn opens onto a real Georgian Garden, with water-lillie padded pools and lovely shrubs and flowering plants surrounding a perfect outdoor dining area.  

Spread over 5 gracious floors, this splendid house has 7 spacious and beautifully decorated bedrooms and has been arranged to sleep up to 16 persons comfortably increasing to 20 using two sofa beds.  There are two full bathrooms, a delightful shower room and one pretty cloack room.

RESERVATION AND CANCELLATION POLICY:

DAMAGE & SECURITY DEPOSIT: 

We will be requiring a deposit of £500 from your credit or debit card to confirm your booking. This deposit will also act as the Damage Deposit to be refunded after your departure.  By “Damage, we mean not only the physical damage to the property, but also damage caused by irresponsible behavior that sullies our reputation as an elegant holiday rental in the city of Bath.*

Remember that it is YOU who will be responsible for the actions of your guests as well as the physical condition of the property when you depart.

Make everyone in your party aware of this, and remind them all to be respectful of this splendid home and of our neighbourhood and to behave in a civilized manner whilst you are here. Please leave The Duchy in the fine condition in which you have found it.

YOUR FULL BALANCE will be taken 2 months or 60 days before your arrival date. We will send you another Confirmation at that point to let you know we have taken your balance and to touch base with your arrival plans.

We can take this from your credit or debit card also.  Be sure that everyone in your party is aware of this commitment before making your reservation.

YOUR DEPOSIT will be refunded within the week of your departure (usually within 72 hours).

CANCELLATION: In the unhappy event that you must cancel after you have paid your deposit or your full balance, we will make every effort to rebook the property. If the property is rebooked, your funds will be returned, less a £100 Administration Fee.
