I would be very happy to write a review but I am struggling to access the webpage.Is there another way to leave a review? If you can post it yourself, my review would be:
"Berkeley House is absolutely gorgeous. Tucked away in the quiet country lanes just outside the centre of Bath, it played host to a very enjoyable weekend. The friendly and helpful owners were there to greet us when we arrived. Having showed us around and made us feel at home, they left us to enjoy everything that Berkeley House had to offer for the rest of our stay but I have no doubt that they would have been on hand if we needed anything. The House had everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable: plenty of space inside for everyone to spread out; logs for the cosy open fire in the evenings; a pretty garden with plenty of tables and chairs to sit in the sunshine; table tennis and other activities; lovely crisp clean bed linen and towels; the list could go on. I would highly recommend a stay at Berkeley House."
All the best
Sophie was very helpful and nice. House is older, but has that old house charm to it with an AGA oven.
We had a family reunion with four families and it was perfect for it. Lots of room for kids to go out to play and adults to stay in to chat. Plenty of kitchen space.
Had the most wonderful time!
[Only minor warning. Will say that there is no AC but apparently we got unusual weather this summer with no rain during the days and it was hot for the first part of the week. I imagine 95% of the year there is no need for AC]
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.

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.
