A Romantic Weekend in Bath, UK

A Romantic Weekend in Bath, UK

The last leg of Taylor and I's adventure outside of London was to Bath. To be honest, it was the one place I didn't do extensive research on after booking and almost cut it from our itinerary. I am SO glad that I didn't make that mistake! With Valentine's Day quickly approaching I wanted to give you my ultimate pick for a romantic getaway. Even if it is just for a night, like it was for us, you will leave feeling so fulfilled and taken care of. 

We were hosted by the majestic Royal Crescent Hotel, and I have to tell you- this was the nicest hotel experience OF MY LIFE! When I first walked in the door to check in I was escorted to a lush sitting room with a piping hot fire and plush antique furnishings. They said "Ms. Farese, we have been so looking forward to your and Mr. Stephen's arrival. Please warm yourself by the fire and let us grab you a cup of tea." I had not even introduced myself yet, they just knew! I realized right then and there, this would be no normal luxury hotel experience...and I was right. 

The Royal Crescent is made up of several buildings. The main townhouse sits at the center of a large crescent with the spa facilities and elegant dining rooms living in the their own respective houses through the gardens behind the townhouse. As we were just engaged, the staff was heavily invested in trying to get us to come back and have our wedding here. I can't tell you how tempting that prospect was, there truly may be no more romantic setting. 

I guess I shouldn't have been so surprised by the romance of Bath, this is Jane Austen country after all. Strolling along the Crescent would have been very a la mode at the time. A place to see and be seen, all of the most respected society women would jump at the invitation of Mrs. Elizabeth Montagu whose home is now The Royal Crescent. That feeling still lives in the walls of the townhouse, you feel very lucky to be there and can completely lose yourself to another time. 

 It makes me kind of emotional to even look at these pictures because of how wonderful of a time we had. From the spacious & glamorous suites to the exceptional staff, The Royal Crescent stole my heart...not to mention the BATH BUNS!
