“"A Real Gem"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

This pleasant "bed and breakfast" is the perfect resting place for those attending the races at Lansdown on the outskirts of the beautiful city of Bath.
It's location is so peaceful, accomodation second to none and hospitality first rate.
Our room was spacious with the most comfortable bed ever, en-suite, wi fi, tv and tea making facilities. The view from our bedroom an absolute delight.
Complete with Daisy the friendliest golden retriever in the world and Carole the sweetest lady owner you are ever likely to meet. I do not think you will find any better value for money. So much so we were more than happy to pay above the going rate. Perfect!!

Beautiful old house with lots of character. Only has two guest bedrooms so it’s a proper intimate quintessential B&B in the owner's own home. The owner made us a delicious breakfast each morning (although last sitting is 9am which some may find too early) and the bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean.

Certainly not for those that prefer an anonymous hotel stay, but if you’re looking for a great value, old-fashioned B&B in a beautiful village, then it’s a great find.

Just stayed here for one night on business, so much better than staying in a hotel, quintessentially English, beautifully decorated, extremely clean, superb breakfast, I just can't fault it! I wish all B&Bs were like this.

we have just spent a very pleasant weekend at this b& b on the outskirts of bath in a small village called wick. we had a warm welcome from carole and her dog daisy and were shown to a spacious room with on suite facilities overlooking the orchard . the organic breakfast was excellent and we were advised to eat at 8am then drive a couple of miles up the road to the park and ride .
the park and ride was almost full so we were glad we made an early start. in the evening we walked down to the village to eat at the rose and crown . the pub was extremely busy and one would be advised to book in advance. the food and atmosphere was first class .so if you want a rural atmosphere when you visit bath with no hassle in parking give southwood house a try you wont regret it.

This self catering cottage is nicely furnished and properly equipped for a couple. The bed is comfortable and larger than a standard double and lots of pillows provided. The bathroom is really good with bath and separate shower. It also has a bidet. The kitchen is properly equipped for cooking meals (no dishwasher though). The owner is very accommodating when asked and leaves you to it which is perfect for self catering. The cottage does not have its own heating time control so be sure to let the owner know your requirements. There is a fast wired broadband connection but not wifi. There is some traffic noise from the road at the morning rush hour but It is in a good location for Bath and Bristol. Altogether, it is definitely good value and among the best of the small cottages I have stayed in.

We just stayed one night after visiting relatives. The B&B is excellent in all respects. Our room and en-suite were spotless and the beds very comfortable. The room had a good widescreen TV and a pleasant view of the countryside. Breakfast was also excellent. Definitely a winner!

Southwood House is a Victorian house and is full of character. Warm and welcoming, it is the famiy home complete with Daisy the Retriever. Our warm room was spacious with en-suite (super shower), tv, fresh crisp bed linen, tea and coffee making facilities - fresh milk offered every day when we returned. Full English breakfast freshly cooked, fresh fruit salad and cereals, tea, coffee and toast.
Set on the outskirts of Wick, just off the A420, ideally placed for touring the area. Bristol in one direction, Bath just down the road in the other. Cheddar Gorge, and Longleat within easy driving distance. Local pub Rose and Crown is just under a mile away and serves excellent food.
