About The Old Smithy Loft

The Old Smithy Loft, dating from the late 1800s, is Ann and Michael’s family-managed luxury apartment. It was once the workplace, or “smithy”, of local blacksmiths. The Old Smithy Loft retains much of its original charm and is built using the iconic Bath Stone. Inside, the furnishings are modern and elegant with a recently-renovated kitchen and family size bathroom. The two large master bedrooms sleep four guests, either in twin beds or super king sized doubles. Furthermore, the luxury apartment is only two minutes’ walk from the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal which meanders through Bath.

Your home away from home

The Old Smithy Loft has a pale modern decor throughout, with a large open-plan living space. In each of the two bedrooms, the king size beds have 1200 pocket spring mattresses wrapped in top quality Egyptian cotton linen. The new bathroom has shower and bath facilities with fluffy cotton towels ready in waiting. On request we can also make up the beds as twins. You can kick-back and relax in the living area with friends and family after a day of exploring Bath’s many sights. Also, there’s a realistic electric fire for keeping cosy at night. The luxury apartment has a dining area space for up to six guests.

Unbeatable location

Our luxury apartment is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Bath in a quiet side street, only a minute away from Great Pulteney Street and the city centre. The Old Smithy Loft is on the first floor in a tranquil setting with your own private driveway and free parking for one car directly outside the property.  As a result the apartment offers a home away from home for holidaymakers and business travellers alike.

You don’t just have the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath on your doorstep! The Old Smithy Loft is in a great location to enjoy the Bath Skyline and Kennet & Avon Canal walks, or for a stroll in the local Sydney Gardens. There is good access to the M4 so you can easily explore the Great West Way via the scenic Cotswolds and beyond towards London and the East. We’re only a short drive to Longleat or Stone Henge for a day visit, or you can stop by in Lacock, Dyrham Park or the Saxon town of Bradford-on-Avon.

We’ve added a welcome pack to the apartment with some of our favourite hot spots for inspiration. If you have any questions, give us a call.

The Old Smithy Loft is regularly reviewed 5 Stars across the web. Below are a few snippets from our guestbook:

“A beautifully appointed flat in a superb location on a quiet street near Sydney gardens. The roaring fireplace was a welcome sight after a chilly day exploring Bath. Spacious bedrooms and sitting areas to relax. We will be returning soon for another visit!”


“I can’t say enough about the Old Smithy Loft! It was in a lovely location just a short walk from the centre of Bath. This is a two bedroom apartment style accomodation, very private and new with everything you can possibly need. It is tastefully decorated with amazing attention to detail – fixtures, furnishings, decor, the lot. I couldn’t recommend it more!!”


“The old smithy loft was an absolutely amazing apartment! It was filled with little touches that made it. When we got there, there was sherry, flapjacks, brownies and a hand written note for us. So cute! This apartment is outstanding, great value for money and would definitely recommend it to everyone!”


“Loved this flat and would definitely stay here again. Spotlessly clean remodelled two bedroom flat very close to Bath. Convenient private parking space right outside the door, but we never used the car as it only took about 10 minutes walk to the weir and about 12 -15 minutes to be in the main shopping centre. We ate out every night with Ann providing us great dinner recommendations.”


“Thank you for all your help and advice over the previous six months. We have had the most amaxing time and been so busy visiting the sight, pubs and Bath in general. It has been lovely to arrive home, weary, to our accommodation, which has provided all we needed and hopsed for. We’re so happy to have chosen The Old Smithy Loft as our place to stay. It’s been perfect.”

Paul and Cathy

“The Loft was perfect. Plenty of space, extremely comfortable and lovely modern decor. Very clean with extra touches added like real coffee, bread, milk etc. Great location, off street parking, quiet area but still very close to city centre (an easy and pleasant walk). I will stay here again without a doubt.”
