Bath lies pretty much on our doorstep and remains a place i’ve never visited (Well, until now) at just over an hours drive i’m not entirely sure why i’ve never got around to going, it’s always been one of those places on my ‘to-do list’ I just guess it slipped to the bottom of the list which it shouldn’t of as it’s one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited and wish i’d of gone sooner.
The streets are awash with beautiful stone buildings which are filled with history, tonnes of places to eat and most importantly….shopping heaven. We arrived mid morning and headed straight to fill our faces at Hunter & Sons.

Can we just take a moment for the decor of this place?!?! I’m not going to lie, i’m a huge fan of the industrial look I know some people aren’t into it but Hunter & Sons have nailed it and made it look awesome inside, as for the food, it was exactly what we were craving. If you do happen to find yourself in Bath and brunch (or a beer) is your thing you HAVE to go, it’s hidden up a little nook away from the hustle and bustle and they also welcome dogs, a huge bonus for us!
I opted for the Avo, Eggs and Bacon on toast which can I just say was bloody amazing and Paul had the Confit Duck Leg which was incredible and I kind of wish i’d had it too, there was a bit of stealing of each others food and fork fighting in an effort to get the best of both, so much so, that I forgot to photograph Paul’s meal…whoops.
After scoffing and chin wagging we headed out to start our day of mooching and dribbling over the beautiful houses, our bank balances certainly wouldn’t stretch to living in Bath but one can always dream, right? Anyway, being the organised freak that I am I had already scouted out a few places I wanted to visit, first off was The Foodie Bugle which is a beautiful little shop tucked away in Abbey Street, it boasts the most divine homeware, stationary, speciality teas and all that good stuff, it even has a cute cafe inside so you can shop and enjoy tea and cakes at the same time, no better way to kill an hour or two don’t you think?

If that doesn’t tickle your tastebuds then there are literally hundreds of other places to eat in Bath including the ever so famous Sally Lunn’s, The Courtyard Cafe, and Society Cafe, just to name a few.
We fell in love with the Decor (and cakes!!!) in Society Cafe, if you have ever been in you will know its pretty small but the way they have decorated it is perfect, from the statement bike on the wall to cosy seating downstairs and the glass wall looking out into the arcade makes it excellent for my favourite past time….PEOPLE WATCHING!

If you are a coffee lover then you need to visit, oh and the tea isn’t too shabby either.
This was our last pit stop before hitting the road home, we fuelled up on cakes and beverages and headed back to our humble abode.
I can honestly say, I fell in love with Bath as soon as we arrived. It’s like a little London but much prettier and less hectic which I adore! We will be visiting again very soon.
If you have any recommendations of where to go I would love to hear them
