There is a regular bus service from the top of Cavendish Road. Junction 18 of the M4 motorway is about 10 miles to the north and Bath Spa Station provides a fast and regular service to London Paddington (journey time approx 90 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx 15 minutes).

In the vicinity is The Marlborough Tavern gastro pub, private tennis and squash club and excellent private and state schools. St Stephen's church is also close by.


The Hermitage is a stylish and well-appointed 4 bedroom detached home, situated on the popular and highly desirable lower slopes of Lansdown. It has accommodation arranged over 3 floors, enclosed terraced garden and off road parking.

The first and second floors are arranged with bedrooms and bathrooms all stylishly appointed with an attractive first floor balcony, spanning the whole width of the home and accessed off three of the bedrooms.

Finally there is a separate home office/store room accessed via steps to the side. This is ideal for independent working space or subject to the necessary permission, could be adapted to a self-contained studio flat. The quality of the home is highlighted by features to include fireplaces, stylish herringbone and tiled flooring, a beautifully appointed hand built kitchen with marble and granite
work surfaces and quality bathroom suites. These are all complemented by expert decoration and tall ceilings.
