The Royal Bath and West Show 2019

We had a fantastic time at The Royal Bath and West Show recently. Although fully booked, we did manage to spend a couple of afternoons there and it proved to be most enjoyable.

As well as seeing the many sheep, goats, pigs, and cattle all in tip top, award winning condition……




we saw lots of award winning cheeses, tasted a variety of the local ones and sampled some wonderful cider!



The tractors, farm machinery and vintage traction engines are always amazing to see…..



but we always love to watch the sheep shearing competition and were pleased to make it just in time for the finals!



It was also extremely good to meet John Trott from the Mendip Bonsai Studio, located very near us in Downside Shepton Mallet. He has recently been awarded  the prestigious role of ‘The Master Grower’ at the 2019 RHS Malvern Spring Show. His Bonsai exhibits were an absolute delight! Perfection in miniature! He permitted us to photograph some of his amazing work so we could share them with you.


John’s workshops are always very popular and he can be contacted directly for more information.


The Royal Bath and West have already decided on their show dates for next year, 28th-30th May 2020. Although it will only be a three day show, it will still contain all the elements to make it a great family day out. For more information for 2020, please click here.

Over the years we have had many sponsors of The Royal Bath and West Show, judges and  ‘visitors’ stay with us whilst attending the show…..we would love to welcome you too!
