On the way back from our trip to Cornwall we stopped over for a night in Bath, a handy half way layover. We decided to stay at 66 Bloomfield Avenue, a delightful homestay just 10 minute walking distance from the centre of Bath.
It was an incredibly cosy place with a super friendly host and I loved our little room with its modern en suite and even a bottle of brandy left for us to sample! Bath is a very expensive place to stay so the £75 we paid for the night was very good value. After a couple of hours of chilling in our room we strolled into town for a late dinner.
We ate at ‘Sotto Sotto’, a place I have tried to eat at a few times before but always found it booked up. This time we made a reservation well in advance and it was well worth the wait. Our meal was absolutely delicious, the service was perfect and the vaulted cellar setting was very romantic.
After dinner we took a walk around Bath Abbey, founded in the 7th century and a perfect example of gothic architecture. In the daytime the area around the Abbey is pretty busy but at night the area was empty, giving the Abbey an eerie presence.
After a lovely night sleep followed by a filling breakfast at our homestay we set out into Bath for a little stroll around before heading back. We walked by Pulteney Bridge, The Circus, The Royal Crescent and The Georgian gardens, all prime examples of the gorgeous architecture that Bath offers.
