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

Beautiful house in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is set in the most stunning location, close to Bath. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need and is done to the highest standard. Each bedroom is furnished beautifully and the kitchen area was wonderful.

Incredible house - highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my 13 of my friends stayed at Berkley House a couple of weekends ago and had the most amazing time! We pulled up the drive and the house is so impressive from the outside. The garden is lovely and the house is beautiful. The bedrooms were big and spacious, there was more than enough room for us all and everything was clean and in good condition.

It seems like owners Paul and Jackie really have made the house perfect for occasion weekends, yet it also felt like our very own house as had a very lovely homely feel about it. The house has literally everything you’d need, and a lot more that you think you don’t need, but are pleasantly surprised by – a chocolate fountain for example! The reception rooms are a great size, and the kitchen became the hub of the house for us over the weekend. We were sold on the house from the pictures of the dining room under the conservatory – we had a dinner on Saturday night in the dining room with candles around and it was so wonderful. The whole weekend worked perfectly.

I can’t recommend Berkley house enough - thank you very much for letting us stay!

Stunning property with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect house for a group of 11 friends retreating from London (only a 2 hour drive). The house had everything we could have possibly needed, and ample space! Our weekend consisted of food, wine, long walks, pub lunches, open fires, and lots of board games, all in this beautiful setting.

The conservatory dining room was the perfect place, morning and evening, with lovely views. The kitchen had plenty of space to cook for lots of people, with an Aga and a hot plate. ALL the bedrooms were beautiful; super comfy beds, soft towels and a killer shower!

Would highly recommend and hope to be back!
