This morning Graham and Christine (old family friends of the Eads) joined us for breakfast. It was a full house with Nicky, Ben and Abigail also staying. Poor Ben was all upset when he had to go off to school. Must have felt like he was missing out on all the fun. We headed over to Wells markets and wandered over to feed the ducks and swans in the moat. I never get tired of visiting Wells Cathedral. It's so pretty. It was freezing again today and I thought for sure ...
... floor had sauna's. This was amazing. Four different scented round sauna's (Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Eucalyptus and Menthol, and lemon). Each one had stone benches around the inside perimeter which could have sat around 20 people. They were all really hot though and you could only stand around 10 mins in each. On the perimeter of this room there were cold showers you could cool down with, and deck chairs where you could relax in and chill out. The first floor was ...
Today was another gorgeous day with clear blue skies and sunshine. We jumped in the car after breakfast and headed to Weston-Super-Mare. Took about 40mins, we parked and walked along the seafront, before walking out the pier. The kids had a ball on some of the rides (simulator, and dodgems). We even all went on a 4D ride which was really fun. Was really cold ...
... shopping. We stopped for a hot chocolate at Starbucks, then picked up Nicky's birthday present (a nice watch). Steve took Jonah down to his old Rugby club to catch up with some old friends, before joining us back home for lunch. Jen and I headed over to Shepton Mallet again in the afternoon to pick up some Xmas presents from Argos. Nothing much else happening today. Only other thing to note was the kids sleeping in till 7am. Think we're over the jet ...
One of the things left on my "to-do before I leave London" list was visit Stonehenge, and as luck would have it there are bus tours going there from London every day! I opted for the Bath, Stonehenge and Salisbury tour that visited all three places in one day.
Bath is a beautiful city - all the buildings are made of sandstone (or at least they all look like they are), with a beautiful cathedral and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cornerways Bath
Loved every minute at Cornerways
My husband and I have recently returned from a long weekend in Bath where we stayed at the Cornerways B&B for our first wedding anniversary. We weren't expecting too much so imagine our surprise when we arrived to be welcomed warmly by the hotel owner, Sue, into a beautifully decorated, calm and peaceful B&B. The facilities were fantastic and the bed was the largest and most comfortable that either of us have ever experienced. Sue was incredibly helpful and gave us honest advice and guidance regarding what to do and where to go in the beautiful city of Bath, nothing was too much trouble for her and every morning, she provided us with a fantastic cooked breakfast. We would have no hesitation in recommending Cornerways to anybody and in fact, are looking forward to returning there next year with our children. Our deepest thanks go to Sue for helping to make our visit as special as it was.
Loved it - great b&b
My partner and i stayed here for one night and we were not disappointed.
We were in bedroom 1 which was spacious, clean, light and airy. It had a lovely little en-suite shower room, well stocked hospitality tray and a mini fridge with complimentary bottles of mineral water. The room was very warm (we stayed on a gorgeous weekend) and a small portable fan would have been good, but we did sleep well anyway.
The owner was very helpful, she gave us information on the area, what to do, where to eat etc. It had been my Birthday and she had put in a card and roses in my room. Such a nice touch.
We were able to choose what time we wanted breakfast and had a choice of full english or continental. Breakfast was absolutely gorgeous, a huge variety.
I would definately reccommend staying here, it's one of the nicest places i've stayed in, very competitive rates and is only a few minutes walk away from all the sights.
I have been reccomending it to all my friends!
Would recommend to everyone!
My wife and I checked out of Cornerways this morning, after just spending the Memorial Day/Bank Holiday for a relaxing weekend in Bath. Sue was incredibly helpful and made us feel at home all the time. We enjoyed an ultra-comfortable bed that we didn't not want to get out of. Our bathroom was spotless with a fantastic shower & whirlpool tub and breakfast was pefect to get us started on our day.
Cornerways is very well-located, positioned within an easy walk to everything that Bath has to offer. Next time we find ourselves in Bath, we will definitely be staying here.
Will def go back
I stayed at Cornerways during the Easter bank holiday weekend with my boyfriend. We had a lovely clean room which had a gorgeous en-suite bathroom. Sue (B&B owner) gave us lots of useful information, where best to eat, drink and visit as well as giving us lots of leaflets on things to do in and around the Bath area. The english breakfast was lovely, cooked to perfection. The B&B is literally a 5 min walk into town which was fantastic. A great place to stay, would def stay there if we went back to Bath. The cost of the room was only £65 per night, one of the cheapest places I could find that close to the city centre. Well worth the money, would def recommend this B&B to everyone wanting to visit Bath.
Beautiful Georgian house
We just returned from a great Easter weekend in Bath. We stayed at Cornerways and were absolutely delighted with it. The room (number 3) was fantastic, a nice and well-decorated space with a whirlpool bath as a treat! There was a great deal of attention to detail everywhere from the very well stocked hospitality tray to the decent sized bar of soap, fluffy towels, Easter card and chocolate eggs to match the time of year. For breakfast we were given lots of choice as the service is bespoken. It was all a big treat and great value for money. We recommend it!
You will not be disappointed!
From the moment that you meet the first-rate owner of the ideally located Cornerways you know that you're going to have a great stay. Our room was spacious with a modern en-suite, a very useful mini fridge and plenty of storage capacity. If it wasn't for the superb breakfast it would've been tempting to stay in the large and luxurious bed all day. The attention to detail and personal touch, from the complimentary mineral water to breakfast time to suit, are a credit to the owner who also has a great wealth of knowledge about Bath. Cornerways is the type of place that you can recommend to your friends and family, anyone in fact, being safe in the knowledge that they will not be disappointed.
Extremely Pleasant B&B
We have just returned from a long weekend at Cornerways B&B in Bath,the B&B was fantastic! It was very clean,airy,comfortable and the hospitality was 2nd to none and the cooked breakfast was delicious!! We had champagne on ice on arrival and Cornerways made our stay a very happy memorable experience. The B&B is less than 5 minutes walk to the city centre and the historic site (Roman Baths & The Abbey) and yet the B&B is so quiet inside you'll never believe it. It's a definate must to stay when visiting Bath and we shall certainly stay again in the future and recommend others. (02/04/2006)
An all round great experience
I've never really experienced bed and breakfast much before but I was delighted with what I found at Cornerways.
I was quite surprised to find a mini dvd collection, a fridge with free mineral water and parking so close to the centre. Breakfast was delicious and the service was very welcoming, not to mention the comfortable beds. The attention to detail makes the stay good value and a pleasant around experience. I'll be staying there again next time I'm out in Bath. Thanks!
Excellent place to stay
We stayed at cornerways at the end of January. We were very fortunate to find such a well situated and comfortable B&B at such short notice. The lady who runs the establishment is very pleasant and looked after us exceptionally well.
We plan a return visit in the spring.
Fantastic place to stay
We stayed at the cornerways on the weekend of the 25th of febuary 2006 and I had to write to say what a lovely place to stay.The lady who runs the guest house was very pleasent and went out of her way to accommadate my requests, it was my partners 30th birthday and at very short notice I rang the lady and asked if she could get me some champagne to be placed in our room on arrival, which she did along with roses and fresh fruit.
The room was beautiful with an en-suite shower room,tv in the room and complimentry bottles of water in the fridge.The breakfast was served at a time convenient to us, and there was a choice of full breakfast, continental, cereals and fruit and yoghurts.There was also plenty of information all about the local area, and as a bonus the guest house was situated central to Bath. It was a pleasure to stay there and we will be going back in the summer.
