PostSubject: Longleat, two nights at Bath Arms Hotel   Sat Apr 02, 2011 9:12 pm

Mrs DB and I had a short break to Longleat in 2007 and we stayed at the Bath Arms Hotel not far from the Estate of Longleat. The deal with the Hotel included free tickets into Longleat itself which turned out to be a bargain. I don't believe that offer has been given since.



The hotel had themed rooms and we were given the Chinese room which had a very large bed



The evening meals were excellent with those sauces squiggled across the plate.

After a lovely cooked breakfast the next morning

we did the sarfari drive, where you could pull in to see the animals



Some of the animals couldn't be bothered with us and didn't come near us



Whilst others just want to come too close



In the monkey enclosure they all wanted to strip our car down



And in the Deer area Mrs DB bought a cup of food for them and because I didn't have a cup on my side of the car they kick my car in. I ended up with a dent



In some enclosures we were told to wind our windows up, this poor soul may have forgotten



We had a train ride around a lake and a boat ride which sold one more food to feed the seals



The day was just Simple



We also visited the House where the Marquis of Bath lives and saw the rooms and paintings but no photography was allow.

All in All, not a bad break, took my fishing rods to fish for the last morning but no bites

40 years ago I used to live near Longleat (near Bradford-on-Avon,Wilts) which had not long been open as a safari park.Went.The monkeys removed the screen washer jets from the car and crapped all over the car.The lions were asleep.The old Lord Bath (father of the current Thynne) had an eye to business.The current Lord Bath has an eye for crumpet and loads of it.Isn't it a CenterParks now?

I agree Daryn - although Chester is a great one...loads of open space for the animals, and very well kept.
