Why Bath?

We fell in love with Bath fifteen years ago. It’s a beautiful city, surrounded by countryside, with friendly, down-to-earth, creative people who love living here. I grew up in London where a lot of people are just moving through. In Bath, everyone is happy to be here.

The Lido has reopened at Cleveland Pools – a huge project which has been lovingly brought back to life by a dedicated team of local volunteers.

What do you do to spoil yourself?

I love going out for lunch or dinner with my husband or with friends. A favourite place for lunch is the Wheelwright Arms in Monkton Combe, and Walcot House is always a treat for either lunch, dinner or cocktails.
