Couldn't believe it when I got an email from the Sainsbury's magazine to say I'd won a short break. Had a choice of 2 Country Living hotels, one in Harrogate, one in Bath. I chose to go to Bath because the Wikitravel page said that was where Solsbury Hill was, where Peter Gabriel got the inspiration for the song of the same name. Last weekend, a friend and I headed to the Lansdowne Grove hotel in Bath to claim our prize.
The hotel was really pretty, the staff were helpful and our room was comfortable, with plenty of space, lots of tea and biscuits and fast internet. The breakfast was tasty, with decent options for my veggie travelling companion, and the library with all the broadsheet newspapers was a nice touch. All in all, a great base to explore Bath for the weekend. Feeling really lucky to have won it.
