Southwood House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 5 Wick B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Found this B&B on the Internet- most other accommodation was fully booked, as it was University of Bath open weekend. Pleasantly surprised; nice secluded location, facilities clean & tidy with en-suite shower room, & well stocked tea & coffee making facilities. Hostess even provided fresh milk upon our arrival. Could perhaps have done with a couple more pillows, just a minor criticism...
Woke up to a lovely view, plenty of wildlife & birdsong. Breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked & plenty of, really hearty, which set us up nicely for the day. Managed to catch a few minutes with Carol the owner before our departure, & got to meet Daisy, her beautiful Golden Retriever...
All in all a pleasant stay, would recommend & would probably stay again if in the area.

Homely and friendly little B&B close to Tracy Park golf club. Clean and quiet room with a giant bed; only reason this is not a 5 star review is that there was nio real veggie alternative for breakfast. Stil recommended though!

Just got back from my second stay at Southwood House. Had business in Bristol needed reasonable self-catering accommodation. This one-bedroomed cottage was ideal. Off-street parking and everything you might need. Very clean and warm. The main house also offers B&B where a colleague stayed and that was very convenient. I joined him for breakfast one morning and it was superb. This is also a great location if you are visiting Bath - made it there in less than 15 minutes - in rush hour. There are loads of great country pubs within 5 minutes and a golf course within a 5 minute walk (boasting 2 18-hole courses restaurants and bar). Carol, the owner of Southwood House, can't do enough to make you feel at home. Kudos to you. See you next year.

Room Tip: Book the cottage if it's available - it's worth it for the extra space. You can still go ove...

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.
