THE LOOKING GLASS HOUSE is a positively stunning stone and glass, architect designed, house of much style and plenty of substance.  It has been built into the hillside and set in an enormous garden, surrounded by decks and stone patios, and featuring one of the most astonishing views in Bath.

PARKING: This amazing house has the added benefit of gated on-site parking spaces as well as exclusive use of the large garden and patios.        

LOUNGE:  The house is mainly on one floor with a wide hallway opening into the amazing living area.  The solid wood flooring and much glass give a feeling of light and space throughout. The gracious living room overlooks the beautiful hillside and garden with pleasant views from every side.

The living room is surrounded by glass and the floor to ceiling windows let in plenty of light along with the astonishing view. There is a handsome modern kitchen adjoining the dining area with views to the garden and patio below.

The house has been beautifully furnished in a  combination of contemporary and "Orientalist" period, with elegant sofa and dining space for 6.  There is lovely large window overlooking the garden, and of course there is flat screen TV with DVD, as well as stereo with Ipod dock, and of course, WIFI 

BEDS; There are two main bedrooms, one with king sized bed and one with double bed only. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.

There is also a downstairs area with additional sitting and sleeping space as well as shower room. This space has an attractive "Trundle" bed, which can be made up as either a single or a double.

This house is on Lyncombe Hill, one of the 7 hills that form the little city of Bath and is a 20 minute walk to the centre or a £6 cab ride.


The Looking Glass House is simply fantastic in its style and totally unique to our roster.  Spacious, stylish and bright, its unusual features and stunning views make it a magical location for your visit to Bath.

SPECIAL NOTE: Parties/Hen Parties: The Owners of the Looking Glass House do not want parties to be held or what is generally thought of as "Hen Parties" in this house. Dinner parties for those occupying the house are of course no problem. If you think you may be too high spirited for the Looking Glass House, another choice might be preferable.

Otherwise, this is an absolutely amazing house and a pleasure to stay in.

Everything you could require will be available in this home, from lovely linens and towels to specialty teas and coffees, to milk and cookies.
