Berkeley House is a beautiful Victorian house set in 2 acres of woodlands and gardens with gorgeous views over of the beautiful Limpley Stoke valley. Limpley Stoke is a thriving Wiltshire village, perched on the edge of the Avon valley designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is situated six miles south-east from Bath, a world heritage city, and five miles south-west from Bradford on Avon. Berkeley House still retains many of its original features, including exposed wooden floors and roaring log fires, combined with modern furnishings. The house has a grand spacious feel with high ceilings and chandeliers, exceptional kitchen and living rooms have an open plan feel which is perfect for families and large groups. Ideal tourist attractions are The Roman Baths and Abbey, the rooftop pool at Thermae Bath Spa, Jane Austen Centre, Stonehenge, Avebury, Lacock, Longleat Safari & Adventure Park and Castle Combe.

Golf: Cumberwell Park is Wiltshire's only 36 hole golf course, clubhouse starting points for all four 9 hole courses.

Within this elegant, tranquil setting you will find a venue that provides the ideal location for an enjoyable golfing experience.

Since opening in 1994 Cumberwell Park is now established as one of the best courses in the South West and has been awarded four stars in Golf World's Top Courses in Britain. The Club is also an accredited Golf Mark and Club Mark facility.

The 36 hole course designed by Adrian Stiff provides different challenges for golfers of every ability. The course encompasses a wonderful blend of rolling countryside, lakes, streams, natural copse and woodland.

The natural contours of the landscape have shaped the design of the course, which covers 400 acres. The beauty and interest of the course is further enhanced by nine lakes, thirty-four acres of woodland and free flowing streams.

All greens have been constructed and maintained to the highest specification, and the tees are built with a sand based root zone mix.

The Course has been sown using the highest-rated cultivators available and maintained using state of the art green keeping techniques and machinery. The team of dedicated green staff take tremendous pride in their work and this is reflected in the course presentation.
