Bath is one of those places you instantly fall for. As you approach the honey-coloured city surrounded by the rolling hills of the West Country, it’s pretty special from the get going.
From moment one, we liked Bath. It’s the perfect size for a 24 hour getaway. Lots to do and then lots more. And some beautiful parks to just do nothing in – or in our case, watch hot air balloons ascend!
Just a short and pretty 15 minute walk to the Georgian city centre, and a quick 3 minute stroll to Bath’s main park, you’ll stumble across the beautiful The Bath Priory. Filled to it’s very brim with character and country house charm (think big sofas, ticking clocks and lots of art), with a modern touch and a totally indulgent L’Occtaine spa complete with indoor pool and steam room.
The fine dining restaurant at The Bath Priory Hotel is a proper hotel restaurant. It cleverly combines old-fashion charm with modern twists – and by this we mean both the food and the setting itself. Along with faultless service and knowledgeable sommeliers, this place has every box ticked.
There are two menus offered – A three course or a taster. Each dish is perfectly thought-out and quite simply, utterly delicious. Feast on lunch, dinner or afternoon tea or go for the lighter (but equally as tasty) bites in The Pantry.
The country-house style continues through to the rooms – which are super inviting and decked out with fun floral prints, comfy furnishings and carefully selected artworks. Oh, and a well-stocked (very essential) Nespresso machine too!
Our room looked out over the pretty terrace and garden. Here, get stuck into a game of croquet in the warmer months (or in our case, a greyish April day – which was just as fun!) and enjoy the outdoor pool… All before tucking into lunch, al fresco.

There’s no doubt about Bath’s thriving food hub – the place is full of exciting restaurants, cafes and pubs. We ate at Richard Buckley’s Acorn Restaurant. Let’s just say, the author of cookery book ‘Plants Taste Better’ sure knows what he’s talking about.
“…this previously vegetarian restaurant, had turned vegan without announcing it. And allegedly, without anybody noticing! And [I became] more interested still, when I found it has a mention in this year’s Michelin Guide. The first vegan restaurant in the UK to achieve recommended status in the Michelin Guide 2019.”

Stroll around the pretty Royal Crescent and back again – Go at sunset when the whole place is glowing.
