Property Type: 
Large country house for family holidays and friends get togethers near Bath

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Chelwood House, Chelwood, nr Bath, Somerset, sleeps 15-31 in 12 bedrooms.

Typical guests are golden weddings, upmarket hen or stag dos, reunions and special birthdays.

Your group can dine all together and have their party in the classic oak-floored function room. This seats 28 comfortably, up to 36 with a little squeeze, and one group had 42 dining.

Use the large kitchen for self catering, or book in caterers of your choice (we have a list to help you, with a wide range in budgets).

Sleep quality is assured in our 9 generously sized bedrooms, all en suite, with 4 king-sized beds and 17 single beds. If your group is really big, increase this to 12 bedrooms by adding the optional Annex. Not sure of numbers? No problem, just book the main house and add the Annex later - we need only 3 weeks notice for that. As the bedrooms are large, and we can add good-quality fold-away beds to suit.

Relax in Lady Mary's snug (for Downton fans, the house is very like that of the Dowager Countess) or in the Blue lounge, or have a few games and a drink in the games room. The extensive grounds have large level lawns, suitable for all sorts of group activities, and are fenced for toddler safety.
