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

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.

Wonderful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Slightly unusually we were a business group of 8 people for a 2 day off site meeting. We found the house very beautiful, warm and welcoming. You can walk to the river Avon & canal in about 5 mins and we had a couple of lovely early spring walks. The owners were very helpful & responsive to our requests. Highly recommended!

Beautiful house in wonderful village very close to Bath

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over New Year. The house is s perfect spot for a getaway for a large group. It is very well equipped with everything you could possible need in the kitchen. It is also very tastefully decorated. There were two living spaces which worked really well with the kids in one and the adults in the other and a huge dining table for us all. It was a great place to see the new year in.

Cozy, comfortable family home.

  • 5 of 5

This property worked perfectly for our family get together for three generations. It is well equipped with every utensil, game and room for Christmas for 16. There are smaller rooms to relax in and the larger living and dining room for all to gather in. The views are stunning and can be enjoyed from the terrace with one of the Nespresso coffees. A short walk through the secret garden takes you to the very friendly pub or to the walk along the river or the canal with art along the way. All in all, a fantastic place.
