Here is an opportunity to enjoy your very own townhouse in the historic heart of Bath.
Originally designed to accommodate the rich and fashionable, The Duchy is a listed Georgian property, built as part of the magnificent Pulteney Estate in 1794. For many years it has been in the proud ownership of His Royal Highness Prince Charles, and he has paid visits since he was a young boy. The house has recently been extensively renovated, and it is now available as an elegant, self-catering holiday home for a group of up to 20 guests.
The magnificently proportioned Drawing Room leads to a beautiful Withdrawing Room and provides a delightful space for entertaining. The impressive and professionally-equipped servants' kitchen leads into a formal dining room which, in turn, leads out through French doors into an original style Georgian garden. There is a further dining area out here, and stunning planting with a pond and waterfall.
All the bedrooms have retained their original Georgian design, and each has an element of grandeur with beautiful sash windows. The beautiful bathrooms occupy a neat Victorian extension at the rear.
The Duchy is a rare example of a perfectly intact classic Georgian townhouse. It is in excellent condition with all the original rooms intact and with no subdivisions. The current owners, Kate and Alex Timms, first bought the property from His Royal Highness at the time of the Millennium and have spent the last few years painstakingly restoring it back to its original splendour.
The house is rich in original features, including beautiful fireplaces in all the main rooms, and furnished with a mix of period antiques and the best of modern. The walls are painted in a heritage stone. The sunny bedrooms have their original Georgian proportions, and all the beds are superior in style and comfort.
The kitchen is decorated in traditional style with a stunning triple Aga as well as a modern oven and hob. All work tops are in granite.
Bang and Olufson TV
Local caterers can be booked in advance, if required.
There is garaged parking for one car in the old stable area at the back and an additional visitor permit. There are city car parks nearby.
The Duchy is along Edward Street in the historic centre of Bath. There is a leading restaurant just over the road and Great Pulteney Street, one of the most impressive boulevards in Europe, is just around the corner. Here you'll find all the main shops (the best outside London), as well as various supermarkets, pubs and restaurants.
Nearest airport: Bristol (30 mins); Heathrow (2 hrs); Gatwick (2.5 hrs).

The location is second to none, in the heart of the stunning World Heritage City of Bath. Arguably the most beautiful city in England, Bath's famous attractions include the Roman Baths and adjacent Pump Room serving elegant teas, the new Thermae Bath Spa, the Abbey, various galleries and museums, and some superb shops. All these are just a short stroll away.
