EXPLORING BATH, SOMERSET

‘Perhaps it is our imperfections that make us perfect from one another’ – Jane Austen 

I woke up to the wonderful feeling of golden morning light creeping around the heavy curtains of my cosy bedroom in Bath, Somerset. With anticipation, I let the light flood in and gorged my eyes on the beautiful view of the spire of Bath Abbey reaching into the cloudless blue sky, just behind a row of perfect Georgian townhouses. My bedroom was also in a gorgeous Georgian townhouse, but not any. Founder’s House is an elegant townhouse built in the heart of Bath in 1744 by Bath’s founders – John Wood the Elder and James Leake. Now as an AirBnB it provides a perfect refuge to relax and recharge just a stones throw away from all the places you’d want to be close to when visiting Bath.

After a delicious breakfast we wrapped ourselves up our warmest cashmere scarves and braved the freezing but utterly stunning day. If you go to Bath you must visit the world-famous Royal Crescent – you can even stay in it at The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa which is meant to be excellent, The Circus – an oval of spectacular Georgian townhouses with Ionic and Palladian details, the Roman Baths – the home of Bath’s mineral rich hot springs (post on this next week), the Abbey and everyone should either have afternoon tea or breakfast in the spectacular Pump Rooms.

We had such a special weekend exploring and finding lovely independent restaurants, cafes and concept stores in this beautiful Roman town nestled away in the gently rolling hills of Somerset. Definitely a place to put on your places to visit list (especially if your a Jane Austen fan)!
