Today we woke to fog, fog, fog, which didn't clear until 2pm and we had a little sun peep. It has not been cold however. We posted 5 kilos of "stuff" back to Hoppers this morning - admittedly the heavy portion of that was binoculars. Paul and I have spent most of the day around the city precinct, walking and riding the hop on hop off bus. Bath has a population of ...
Off to check Cardiff out. Another city.
Onto Bath - wandered around. Used the park and ride, which are common around here since the cities are congested because of the narrow 1800 streets. Definitely the best way to discover what cities are all about is (a) find the information centre and (b) ride the on ...

The Bath Abbey was also beautiful to see, in particular the “fan” vaulted ceiling. It is currently undergoing some major restoration work to the floor. There are a lot of people buried under the abbey and, unsurprisingly, 500 year old human remains don’t make for the best foundation for a building. Consequently the floor is sinking so they are currently fixing it. ...
... days before their departure) it appears that a train reservation is enough to obtain the Visa, along with a complete itinerary of my stay. Sorting this will be my number one priority on Monday morning. I already have a quote for Ulaanbaatar to Beijing by train for £180. Not cheap but a necessary evil with just days to go to get this sorted. On the plus side it looks as if I will be in Tibet on Christmas Day. Looks as if it will certainly be a white Christmas for ...
... in at St Peters Church, Upper Slaughter dating back to the 1500s when a family named Slaughter lived in the area. Moved off thought Lower Swell to Stow on the Wold. It was extremely busy, hard to find a park so we decided to head off to Oxford. Rod had a salmon and prawn salad and I had white baite and salad. I thought it would be fish and chips, but it was little fish about three inches long with their heads on served up in a bowl! It was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rudloe Hall Hotel Corsham
Great place- v romantic
Excellent Hotel. Enjoyed it although we were only there for 12 hours- Very flexible owners who had dinner bought to us (as we have a baby) when we arrived at the hotel late at 10pm, which was delicious incidentally.
Stayed in a room with an outdoor jacuzzi with views over the wiltshire coutryside- very romantic!
Would definitely reccommend the hotel, romantic, peaceful and easy to get in/out of Bath, as we neede to.
We booked the Rudloe Hotel for our annniversary and it far outdid our expectations for a relaxing, romantic break. Sinisa and Sarah are fantastic hosts with absolutely nothing being too much trouble. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and able to relax completely.
We held our son's naming day at Rudloe Hall, It's recently been taken over by new management. We loved the building and grounds as soon as we saw it. The inside does look a little in need of a spruce up in a couple of places but we loved the eccentric charm it oozed. The thing that impressed us most was
My wife and I have stayed at the hotel both before and after the new management (and Chef!), and though we liked the place before, Sinisa and Sara have made this place so much more friendly, relaxed and less self-involved!
A most wonderful place to stay.
My Wife and I have just had the most wonderful stay at this hotel.
I booked the long weekend as a birthday treat for my wife and I must say everything about the Hotel was fantastic and far exceeded my expectations.
The Staff were exceptionally polite and very professional and the food was superb.
This has been the most relaxing weekend that we can ever remember.
We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, we stayed in room 6 and the views were fantastic and it was so lovely to awaken to the sound of the birds singing.
We will definitely be returning in the future.

What A Brilliant Hotel
We have just returned after a brilliant weekend at the wonderful Rudloe Hall Hotel located near to Bath.
It was like stepping back in time to the Victorian era yet had all the comforts plus a lot more than a modern hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Their attention to detail and service with a smile at all times made the stay even more enjoyable than we could have imagined.
The room we choose had an outstanding view along the Box Valley towards Bath overlooking beautiful kept gardens.
We highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in a hotel with a difference when seeking a romantic weekend away, This was made even more special by the attention each member of staff gives to their guests.
THIS HOTEL REALLY HAS THE WOW FACTOR.
The Rudloe Hall is under new management and the new managers, Sinisa and Sarah, are determined that you will enjoy your stay!! We did, it was a lovely, carefree brithday (Easter) weekend. We stayed 3 nights 1/2 board in the Tower suite and thoroghly enjoyed the room, the service, the food and the grounds and aspect. Rudloe seems to be making EVERY effort to cast off the poor legacy of its previous owners/ managers and is doing so very successfully. As a small, independent hotel, it is perfect in not trying to be all things to all men; with only 12 rooms, you are guaranteed excellent personal service, with nothing being too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend it to people who have stayed in the past and not enjoyed it (try again now!) and those looking for a romantic and relaxing getaway.
Real country house
We stayed here for a long weekend and had a great time. The hotel is as you find it, quirky yes but comfortable, unfussy and with a good warm welcome that is what you need at the end of a long journey. Have stayed in many hotels up and down the country with many different styles but this one has a charm of its own. Not everything is perfect but the new young management are working hard to make the hotel a haven at any time and they are well on their way we think. Do try it and see what you think, we will go back. M & J Sussex
This hotel exceeded all our expectations. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing seem to be a problem, we were over three hours late arriving due to traffic but when we contacted the hotel we were told not to worry and that they would even save us dinner if we arrived after the chef had finished. The hotel was easy to find (no getting lost down country lanes!) and had superb views over the surrounding countryside. As for the room, we stayed in room 7 which has a lovely old four poster bed, inviting open fire and excellent views. If any thing we were expecting a smaller room! The food is to die for especially when served in your room in front of the fire.
