I have just come back from a hen weekend staying at Bathwick Gardens (also known as Sir Walter Elliot's House where I have put the same review). There were 11 of us and we took up both the self-catering basement apartment and rooms upstairs. We were looked after wonderfully by Mechthild and Julian who could not have done more to make our stay as excellent as it was. They tended to our every need, nothing was too much trouble, very friendly indeed. The breakfasts were lovely and loads of choice, and we had a fantastic candle-lit dinner on the Saturday night in the grand dining room. There was a large drawing room on the 1st floor that we enjoyed for pre-dinner drinks and after-dinner games and drinks. It was a pleasure dealing with Julian in the run up to the weekend as well and took the stress out of arranging a hen weekend. It is in a great location and only a short walk to bars, restaurants and attractions. We had our own keys and were able to come and go as we pleased (contrary to a previous review which can be ignored!)
This lovely place comes highly recommended, I'll definitely go back... fantastic weekend! And we had a very happy hen!
