Summer is finally here!
And my gosh did we wait for it! These past two weeks have been simply gorgeous in Bath, as soon as the sun comes out the city really comes to life. Lots of smiles all around, people enjoying ice creams and picnic-ing along the rivers or in the parks; or if you’re feeling romantic, a few couples i have seen sharing a bottle or two of Prosecco. Our guests over the past weeks have been so lucky and we’ve even been enjoying serving breakfasts and cold complimentary Bucks Fizz’s outside in the morning sun – a rarity in England it has to be said- on our new terrace outside.
Our New Mini Orchard!
If you’ve been following our Facebook or Twitter pages you’d have heard that we have planted our very own orchard at Villa Magdala as well as a rhubarb planter, our chef Will is extremely keen to get as much fresh produce as we can on the menu and it will be another welcome place for guests to enjoy when they come to stay with us. Our gardening team have been watering like mad over this heatwave but we’re sure the effort will be more than worth it!
Our dog Billy has been up to all sorts these past few months but first of all he would love to congratulate Andy Murray on his great victory at Wimbledon this year. He was hoping next year that he may compete himself next year (we’ll be humouring him until then!:)
In order to keep himself cool over the past few weeks Billy has mostly been in the shade in the garden and getting into every spot of water he can! As he is a keen, regular sailor this is quite easy thankfully! Here he is modelling his lifejacket … Dog Baywatch anyone?
