Weekend in Bath, Somerset

I like to keep myself busy, but I know that life is not just about work and bills, so to find a balance between work and personal life I use all my spare time to just get away and spend some time with friends and my loved ones hence I organised a little, romantic trip to Bath.

Bath is known mainly for its significant Roman Baths, Roman Temple, historical museums and galleries – there is just so much to see we’ve decided to stay overnight to explore as much as possible and visit Thermae Bath SPA. (read more about our unique Thermae SPA experience)

The cosy evening with a cup of tea at Bathen House…

There are so many gorgeous, cosy hotels and BB’s in Bath, plenty to chose from, with prices starting from £20 per night. I came across Bathen House and captivated by its aesthetic, booked it straight away even though it didn’t have many reviews online as it’s a relatively new BB (Opened just 5 months ago).
We’ve stayed in Standard King en-suite, the hotel is absolutely stunning, exquisitely decorated and it’s based around 10 mins drive from Bath Abbey & Roman Baths. I can honestly recommend it, lovely, cosy and quiet place with caring staff who prepared our breakfast for 6:30 as we had to leave at 7am (normally they serve breakfast from 8:30) – how kind of them.

Magical Architecture of Bath…

Plenty of shops, cafe’s and Victorian houses, this place is truly beautiful and takes you back in time.
I was genuinely blown away with Bath’s Georgian architecture, golden buildings and the iconic symbols of ancient Bath, such as Bath Abbey – which survived two World Wars. Or TheCircus – A striking masterpiece, ”mini version” of The Royal Crescent.

I also recommend stopping by Maison Georges Larnicol bakery where you’ll find most delicious macaroons and freshly baked Kouignette’s.

I was really glad that the beautiful, sunny weather allowed us to make the most of our stay and we’ve managed to see pretty much everything we wanted, except Roman Baths. I was really looking forward to see this iconic place. We were expecting it to be rammed, but even though we’ve arrived there on Monday morning, just before opening, there already was a 5-mile long queue and we had our SPA booked for this morning too, so we simply wouldn’t make it. However – it’s a great excuse to visit Bath again 🙂

Evening walk at Parade Gardens & French dinner at Cote Brasserie…

You can’t just walk by Parade Gardens and not get into this magic world of flowers, the River Avon and amazing views of Pulteney Bridge. It’s such a beautiful place!
We ended our day by having a dinner at Cote Brasserie and really enjoyed the selection of starters and main, French dishes.
