Backwell House is a beautifully-revamped Georgian country house just outside Bristol. From its mellow stone portico, you'll see only rolling hills, yet the bright lights of Bristol are a 15-minute drive away. Inside the house are nine double ensuite bedrooms, each uniquely decorated with paintstakingly-collected antique finds, reclaimed timbers and reconditioned vintage bathtubs. The house also features a stunning and unique bar, breakfast room, lounge, conservatory and cinema room for the cosy Sunday slumber party. With its stylish, quirky interiors and beautiful surroundings, Backwell House is the destination-du-jour for unique weddings, countryside getaways and extravagant private parties.

What a beautiful house, just loved it though some of the decor isn’t quite as sympathetic as it could be e.g. industrial lighting in a Georgian dining room?? Nevertheless we wish we had stayed here and not just dropped in for dinner on our way to the nearby Bristol Airport.

Me and my partner had a wonderful 3-course Sunday lunch here, The food was absolutely fantastic and service was very quick, the waitstaff were also very welcoming and friendly, Have to say that £30 for 3-courses of such quality is great value for money, We look forward to

Lovely bath in the room plus a shower in the bathroom.
The amazing tub in the Robinson room. But there is also a great monsoon headed shower option!
Would it be a suitable venue for an afternoon wake?
I’m sorry I just saw this, I would say so but maybe best to check with the venue
