Way out West

Had lovely weekend, making the most of what the West Country has to offer, and visiting a couple of new places to eat in the area.

On Saturday we had a coffee in Bradford on Avon, walked along the river, and then went to the recently opened Archangel bar/restaurant/hotel in Frome for a bite to eat (interesting industrial-chic building, sunny courtyard but rather disappointing food). We came back to Bath to catch the afternoon viewing of Hanna.

Yesterday we drove a few miles out of Bath to Holt and walked around the village before having lunch at the Glove Factory café, which serves delicious (and good value) homemade salads, sandwiches and cakes. Our final stop on our West Country tour was an early evening drink with friends by the canal at Bathampton, just before the rain came!

My highlight of the weekend was the Glove Factory – as well as having a lovely café, it also houses several studios for creative, small businesses that are set around a pretty courtyard with breathtaking views of the countryside. I'm very tempted to move the Anusha offices out there:
