As we are in currently lockdown and none of us can travel, I thought I would reminisce and write about this time last year when me and Lewis went to Bath for the weekend. If you’re thinking of heading to Bath soon (or when we can), here’s a blog post to give you some inspiration of where to stay, what to do and where to eat.
SIDE NOTE: On the way down to Bath, we stopped at Castle Combe for a coffee and bite to eat. Castle Combe is a small, picturesque little village, and I would 100% recommend visiting there if you are passing.
FIRST STOP: CHECKING OUT OUR AIRBNB - BRADFORD ON AVON
Hands down the nicest Airbnb we have stayed in (so far)! Located in Lower Westwood, a 2 minute drive from Bradford on Avon, this converted Chapel is a gem and I’m sure that we will be staying here again soon. Click here to check out this Airbnb for yourself.
By the time we arrived at the accommodation, it was late afternoon so we decided to head into Bradford on Avon, see the sights, sit in the sun and get some food by the river.
HEADING INTO BATH: DAY 1
The next morning we drove to Bradford on Avon train station, got free parking due to the machines not working, bought two return tickets and hopped on a train. The journey only took about 15-20 minutes and we were in the centre of Bath!
With a day of exploring ahead of us, we needed some breakfast and a caffeine fix (for Lewis) to get us going. We got off the train, turned left and right in front of us was The Bertinet Bakery Cafe. This cute little bakery has an amazing range of freshly baked pastries and little breakfast bites to get you fuelled up for the day, along with some great coffee or juice and smoothies for you non-coffee drinkers like me.
Head deeper into the city to check out the shops and history. We decided to go to the Roman Baths and take a tour. Mainly for photographic opportunities, but also to see the historic and famous site. You know, when in Bath and everything. (FYI - we did not buy tickets beforehand. There was only a small queue that we had to stand in for about 10 minutes before getting tickets and entering.)
