Visit the heart of the World Heritage Site. Around Britain's only hot spring, the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water. See the water's source and walk where Romans walked on the ancient stone pavements. The extensive ruins and treasures from the spring are beautifully preserved and presented using the best of modern interpretation. Roman baths were part of the day-to-day life in Ancient Rome. Bath in Somerset, contains one of the best examples of a Roman bath complex in Europe. There are two good examples at Pompeii.
Bed and breakfast guests enjoy traditional English breakfasts cooked using fresh ingredients supplied, wherever possible, by local producers. Many of these farmers and growers trade also at Bath’s Farmers’ Market, which was co-founded by Robert Barnard-Weston, proprietor of Bloomfield House. Non-local goods such as coffee are fair-traded and/or organic vegetarian and vegan options are always available. (Advance notice is helpful but not essential.)
Being a world-famous tourist destination, Bath offers a huge range of restaurants of every kind - and they are all within a few minutes’ taxi-ride from the guest house.
