Early planning for this year’s Jane Austen festival

I know it is still far off in the future, but I just have to show you the amazing place where I will be staying for this years Jane Austen festival.

You remember that last year I stayed together with a group of Dutch ladies? We rented a lovely house together right in the center of Bath. Some of them are going to do the same this year and asked me if I’d like to join them again. Of course I thought it would be fun to stay with them again, and how could I possibly resist when I saw the place they had found?!
The Admiral’s House

The Admiral's House
This is “The Admiral’s House”. Doesn’t it look amazing?! I certainly think so! We will be 14 ladies staying there, for the first four days of the festival (that’s the time they have taken the house for). It will be me, 12 Dutch ladies and my friend Aleksandra from Norway. I have a feeling we’re going to have lots of fun!

I have been debating with myself how I should do with the festival this year. How I should stay, how long I should be there for etc. I still don’t know how long I shall be there for, but I shall at least be there for the first 4 days.

Oh dear, September seems very far off indeed!!

    First time commenting here. Love your blog.

    The house looks amazing – really beautiful façade. I go to the Festival every year, and was looking through some of your photos from last years festival and realise that I went to one of the same events as you – the one on Regency women’s clothing – Bonnets to Boots. I didn’t see myself or my friend in any of your photos though so think I must have been sitting in one of the rows behind you! lol

    Just have to say I love your blue Bella Wilfer dress – it is gorgeous. I really want one! 🙂

    Yes we are Francine!!!! Can’t wait!

    I am doing good thank you Karen. Quite busy right now, but I’m well. For a few weeks it’s almost been like spring here, but a couple of days ago we had a huge amount of snow again. And once again it’s freezing… Winter feels very long this year!

    Thanks for your comment Isabel! You went to the Bonnets to Boots event too?! Really?! How fun! I must have seen you then! Pity I didn’t manage to catch you in a photo! 😉 Are you going to the festival again this year? I suppose so since you you say you go every year. Maybe I’ll see you there! 🙂
