Chelwood House.... a magnificent 17th century country house a few miles from Bath. Set in its own grounds in gorgeous open countryside, Chelwood House is ideal for large group short breaks. With exclusive use of the whole house, groups can enjoy a private weekend or week in sumptuous accommodation.

The 9 bedrooms of the main house each have the luxury of an ensuite bathroom and can sleep 18 – 24 people comfortably – max 27. You also get the option of taking the Chelwood Annex which provides a further 3 ensuite bedrooms, so the biggest groups can be up to 33 people!

Oceans of space is available in the function room for your celebration meal and party, and you can go entirely self catering, or let outside caterers come in to take care of your special meal.

Our typical customers are groups on family holidays and reunions, special birthday celebrations, hen weekends, and stag weekends. Theme parties and Black Tie dinners are popular - ask us for ideas.

Weekends at Chelwood House through to late 2017 have been selling well. Most of the availability is in November and January, but a few odd weekends in summer are still un-booked. If your group can come mid-week (ie Sun or Mon arrival with Fri departure) the rates are considerably lower. Email Lucy and tell her you saw it on 'Latest News'.
