Bloomfield House, Bath, Somerset
Bloomfield House is one of the finest Georgian family houses overlooking what is arguably England‘s most beautiful city. Built in the 1790s, most likely by Baldwin, Bath’s leading architect of the day, it was once the home of the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress. At Bloomfield, exceptionally elegant rooms, fine art, antiques and splendid views combine with environmental credentials. Full English breakfasts are organic, fair traded and provided by local suppliers. House trained children and, by arrangement, pets, are welcome.
Accommodation ranges from cosy single rooms to stunning doubles with four poster beds, each with an en suite or private bathroom. The entire establishment is furnished with antiques and decorated with trompe l’oeil painting.
All rooms offer television; wireless internet access is available both within the building and gardens. A library of books, movies and music is available.
The views from Bloomfield are delightful, the hotel being situated in an elevated position on the southern edge of the city, looking down across Bath’s world famous crescents, churches and surrounding hills.
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.
Seminar and conference delegates may choose when booking what types of fare they prefer. Special events are planned to order, featuring guest chefs offering a wide range of culinary styles.
Being a world famous tourist destination, Bath offers a huge range of restaurants of every kind and is just a few minutes’ taxi ride from the hotel.
The city of Bath nestles in a basin surrounded by seven hills, exactly like Rome. For this reason and the fact that Bath offers the only natural hot springs in England, the Romans settled here almost 2,000 years ago. The Roman Baths are still here and the brand new £30 million spa complex offers today’s visitors the best of ancient tradition and modern sophistication.
Bloomfield House itself has a fascinating history, having been the home, a century ago, of the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Bath. When the house was originally designed in the 1790s, three elliptical rooms, one above the other, were created. The middle one was named the Cheese Room and probably stored cheeses from the same nearby farms which now, once again, supply the establishment with local traditional fare.
