17 Lansdown Crescent Boutique Bed and Breakfast in Bath is a Grade 1 listed crescent building located on the prestigious Lansdown Crescent in the World Heritage Site of Bath. Lansdown Crescent is considered one of the finest crescents in Bath as it enjoys far reaching views over the South of the city.

John Palmer designed Lansdown Crescent between 1789 and 1793 and also had influence over or was responsible for many other notable buildings in Bath such as St James Square, Stall Street, Christ Church, New Bond Street, St Swithins Church (Walcot), the Theatre Royal and the Grand Pump Room. He is considered one of the most eminent of Bath's architects.


The Bed and Breakfast is situated in a very tranquil setting just outside of Bath's main city centre. Lansdown Crescent has houses on only one side of the street, and therefore enjoys magnificent views across Bath.

There is a field directly opposite the crescent where sheep graze peacefully throughout the year, creating a tranquil countryside feel to what is an urban guesthouse. The location is extremely quiet at night, and avoids the usual hustle and bustle of other Bath city centre Bed and Breakfasts.

As a traditional Bath Georgian terraced property, all historical features of the Bed and Breakfast remain intact. The ceilings are fabulously high and the sense of proportion that the Georgians had can be experienced here. No 17 is one of only two houses in the Crescent that is fortunate enough to still have its own coachhouse at the end of the delightful and original garden.


The Rooms

B&B Bath

Each bedroom in the Bed and Breakfast has a large private bathroom, ensuite bathrooms not being available to the Georgians. All of the bedrooms are equipped with radio, television and DVD facilities, tea, coffee, biscuits, water, dressing gowns and hairdryers.

Breakfast is served in the Dining Room that looks out onto the Crescent with its marvellous views over Bath and beyond. Guests have the choice of a delicious continental or home-cooked breakfast of choice with fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts and croissants/toast as desired.

There is parking available for guests nearby. Unfortunately 17 Lansdown Crescent is a no smoking guesthouse.


The Courtyard Room

Situated at the front of the house, the Courtyard Room shows off some of the most original features,including the old kitchen, the original range mantle, the old washing bowl and the dumb-waiter. The guests have the use of the whole floor, which is extremely large.

Spacious but cosy, the room has a warm feel to it and has the original fireplace at the foot of the bed. With this room you also have access to the Snooker Room and the private bathroom.


The Second Floor Room

The Second Floor Room has all the space you need for a relaxing stay. The largest room in the house has a large sleigh bed with stylish furnishings and a lovely view over the back garden, to the Coachhouse, which unusually for Lansdown Crescent is still within the ownership of the townhouse.

The original fireplace has William Morris tiles, and an armchair for comfortable reaading


The Top Floor Room

Situated high up in the eaves, this delightful and surprisingly large room is on its own floor with the bathroom immediately next door. It has a queen size brass bed and plenty of space. A view of the whole city is available for those brave enough to get out on the roof, but please take care!

The original fireplace is very pretty with its slate hearth. There is an unusual peacock chair for relaxing in.
