Holiday Series: Bath Lodge Castle.

A few weeks ago my Australian family came over to stay with us in England for two weeks. Baring in mind I haven't seen my auntie and one of my cousins for 8 years, and the same with my dad not having seen his sister so it was a lovely reunion!
Over my next couple of posts, in between Outfit Posts I'm going to have a series of holiday posts featuring what we got up to in Bath, London & Paris. 
I was lucky enough to be a part of the fabulous trips and excursions my dad had planned. 
So I hope you enjoy them as much as I did :)!
Our first stop was Bath where we had been booked to stay in a Boutique Hotel, which was in fact an actual castle called Bath Lodge Castle which was an amazing experience for us all!  
Its a Grade II listed building complete with fortress and towers and is bursting with character as you can see my from various photos above (the exterior of the castle) and below. 
// This was the communal living room complete with log fire and cute sitting areas (including in the far left was a little cubby hole with a big seat covered in cushions were you could lay and look up at the star lights on the ceiling - cute touch!) //
// The outfit I wore down to Bath; Cream Smock: ASOS; Chunky Knitted Cardigan: Vintage; Wool Hat: (Old) // 
// The beautiful fireplace where we sat before dinner on the first night drinking copious amounts of tea, eating biscuits and later on drinking wine - how relaxing // 
 // A decorative table lamp I took a liking to! // 
 // Original stonework and character features // 
// On the older side of the castle where my parents bedroom was // 
// We decided to have dinner in the Castle restaurant on the first night, I felt like royalty dining in such beautiful surroundings, it was a three course meal and I choose 'Potted Rabbit' for my starter which had been homemade by the lovely owner and was amazing with the ciabatta bread and chutney dip // 
// Drinking wine by the fire // 
// Gorgeous character features in the Castle Hotel // 
// Mine and my sisters bathroom - loved the old school decor // 
// Even with a busy schedule I still made some time to fit in some light reading material before bed // 
// Me posing outside the front of the castle before we headed off into central Bath // 
// The lovely view from mine and my sisters bedroom, it is set in 3.5 acres of landscape gardens including a woodland and stream and a Pavillion hiding a outdoor jacuzzi and sauna //
// My sister // 
// An interesting read.. I lie I didn't read it! // 
// A tapestry up in the Castle - watch out for those ghosts! // 
// Cute but slightly creepy decor around the building, I love the way it has original character features all over the building // 

You can check out the website here; bathlodgecastle.com 
It's definitely worth a stay or a visit if you get the chance / or the money..
Thank god I can still benefit from family holidays otherwise I wouldn't get to experience all of these opportunities!

In my next holiday series I will be featuring my trip to Bath itself and the Christmas Markets.

  9. That's a great experience I just ever had. The everest double glazing prices for cottage may seems high or not suitable for you. To avoid hassling, get an agent now!
