A summer break around Bath and Bristol
It was our first time to stay an accommodation located above the pub. The entrance of the accommodation is from the garden side of the pub, but the check in is at the pub. We found that it’s quite strange. It was quite noisy until before midnight. We don’t think this kind of accommodation is for a family like us.
