It’s been a long time coming, but the shiny new Three Abbey Green website has finally arrived! We’re pretty pleased with the new look and, hopefully, it will be much easier for all of you to find the information you need about staying with us. Let us know what you think!
You’re currently reading one of the most notable changes to our site. This blog will be your place to find out the latest news about the guest house and apartments, as well as our personal recommendations for things to do during your visit. I will do my best to give you a ‘local’s eye view’ of what’s happening in Bath every month and perhaps even give you a sneak preview of things to come.
The new website is not the only change afoot here at Three Abbey Green – we are now live on Facebook and Twitter! The links on the left of the contact page will remain constant so you can always hop across and follow us there. You never know what extra special offers and deals might pop up. Keep an eye on Tripadvisor too: the window on the right of the contact page is automatically updated with our ranking and latest reviews. If you’ve stayed with us before, why not write a review of your own? We’d love to know how your visit went.
Most of you will know that, as a city, Bath is quite proud of her literary connections. Perhaps the most well-known literary figure to be associated with Bath is Jane Austen, which is why, when we decided to make another change and redevelop Four Abbey Green apartment into three new rooms for the guest house, we opted to name it the Jane Austen Wing. Each room is named for a heroine from one of Austen’s novels.
The top floor room is named for Elinor Dashwood, the elder of the two Dashwood sisters in Austen’s earliest novel, Sense and Sensibility. A sensible young lady, after disappointment and heartache Elinor finds her eventual happy ending in the arms of the noble Mr Edward Ferrars. On the second floor you will find the Elizabeth Bennet room. The protagonist of Pride and Prejudice, Austen’s most famous novel, Elizabeth’s experiences lead her to set aside her tendency toward prejudice and find love with the proud Mr Darcy. And finally the first floor room, named after Emma Woodhouse, the titular character of Emma, the last of Austen’s novels to be published in her lifetime. Emma is a naive young socialite who learns the perils of matchmaking, before realising and finally acting upon her love for her dear friend Mr Knightley.
Elinor Dashwood and Elizabeth Bennet rooms are both available to book from 7th July 2013; when we have set a date for Emma Woodhouse to be completed, you’ll read it here first! If Austen is your cup of afternoon tea, make sure you drop by the Jane Austen Centre while you are in town. The Jane Austen Festival runs from 13th to 21st September 2013 – now’s the time to book one of our lovely new rooms above and make the most of the season!
On the subject of festivals, there’s so much going on in Bath this year, we’re all going to be spoilt for choice! Visit Bath have a full month-by-month listing at http://visitbath.co.uk/whats-on/major-festivals-and-events .
The one I’m particularly looking forward to is the weekend of Museums at Night: http://visitbath.co.uk/whats-on/museums-at-night-p384193 on 16th to 18th May. There’s just something so magical about having a chance to see something beautiful in a completely new light…
