After a cosy night in front of the fire we woke early to see the lights on in the tiny country school that stood next to our barn.
It was the first day back to school here in England. We felt the teacher’s pain as she madly got ready for the students’ return.
After packing up we headed off for another day on the road. The area we drove through has been listed as a place of outstanding natural beauty. The landscape is jaw droppingly beautiful. The Quantock Hills overlooking our cottage were amazing. You travel through thin lanes where tree branches reach for each other making a tree tunnel for us to drive through.
In the back of a 700 year old graveyard I spot a herd of deer grazing in the early morning mist.
For the next half an hour as we drive through the beautiful Quantock Hills we are amazed at all the animals we see. Not sure what these are called.
Free range sheep and wild horses roaming the road side.
We arrive in Bath. Historically known for its Roman Baths. The naturally heated Spring waters are said to have healing properties. It contains 42 different minerals. We head for a 2 hour soak at the roof top Thermae Bath Spa.
No photos were allowed so you will have to imagine what we looked like! We soaked in an open air roof top pool enjoying spectacular views over the city of Bath and surrounding green lush hill sides.
A must do for everyone’s bucket list. The naturally warm water smells of sweet flowers and is soft and silky like rose petals. You feel 10 years younger relaxing in bubbles and spa jets. Check out the web address for more must see photos. The waters were raging down the river in Bath due to a lot of flooding further up.
We enjoy looking through Bath Abbey.
