Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Sophie



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

Fantastic house you won't want to leave .

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 couples who stayed for a long weekend. Owner was very helpful when making the booking to accommodate us. The bedrooms are all great with the most comfortable beds . Lovely bed linen and comfy mattresses. All the décor is simple but elegant with some homely touches. Everything you could need for your stay. The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed and more ..... A lovely warm house (we stayed in January) with the arga in the kitchen and lovely open fires. We didn't use the outside space due to wet weather but looked lovey. We spent time in the lovely orangery which looked out onto the great views.

Easy walk to the bus stop to catch the bus into Bath (20 mins). We walked along the canal for 3 miles towards Bradford on Avon to find a great pub serving food. Pub also 5 mins walk away. Overall I would definitely recommend this house. Everything you need and more ....

Beautiful property, great for a family get-together

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were met by the owners who gave us a tour of the house detailing how to use everything and where to find everything (it is a very large house!). They were very helpful from providing taxi information to ensuring we were all happy with bedrooms and where to find extra mattresses etc.

The house was great for us as it allowed us to come together but also have time on our own as there are other rooms you can lose yourself in. There were 10 of us but the house could easily accommodate more. We had a great weekend and would certainly think if going back.

Home from home for a large group of friends for a pre Christmas get together

  • 5 of 5

Berkeley House is homely and spacious with every comfort from home. Plenty of rooms to spread out in and yet the individual rooms were large enough to comfortably seat 12 of us. It is warm, well stocked with logs and kindling with 2 open fires. The beds are very comfortable with luxurious feel linen. During our 3 night stay we visited the Hop Pole pub at the end of the garden, which served great pub grub and employed a house recommended caterer who cooked and served a lovely 2 course meal for a very reasonable price and even cleaned all away afterwards - luxury!

All in all a great winters break, many thanks to Jackie and Paul - all 12 of us would recommend this lovely house highly. It also has easy access to a nearby bus stop that will take you into Bath and a great walk along the canal.

Perfect house for friends getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect base for a weekend away with friends. 12 adults and 4 kids ranging from a new born to 4 years spent the weekend at this beautiful house. The set up was perfect with all rooms equal in size and plenty of facilities and toys for the little ones. We were blessed with good weather and enjoyed the BBQ and sitting outside I h the garden, plus walking by the canal and the local pub which was literally next door. The house is very well equiped with everything you need to cook for large groups.
