At the risk of sounding like the other Tasburgh reviews I have to say that our stay there last week was absolutely perfect. The room was beautiful and bright, the food was amazing, and Sue instantly made us feel at home. She had a full house but when we needed help she delivered and I never felt like she was rushing to get to her other duties.
It is about a 15-20 minute walk into the center of Bath but Sue pointed us towards the toe path that runs along the Kennet and Avon canal straight into town. What a beautiful walk that turned out to be. Walking into town and back along the canal was one of the highlights of our trip. No noisy cars rushing by too fast, just quiet boats and cute sheep.
Breakfast at the hotel was divine. Within minutes of sitting down we had pots of tea for my wife and daughters and coffee in a French press for me ready to be poured. The full English breakfast was absolutely delicious. The sauteed field mushrooms were out of this world and I was told that they come from a local farmer. My wife said her scrambled eggs were the best she'd ever had and wondered what they put in them (cream?).
One morning we were trying to figure out how to get somewhere from the hotel and when Sue saw our road map she exclaimed "You'll never find it with that map. Let me get you a proper map!" She ran out to her car and retrieved a very detailed local road map for us. Getting there was a breeze with her map.
We would return to Tasburgh in a minute. I haven't stopped thinking about Tasburgh and the K&A canal since we've returned home.
