A home from home

During my Mod 1 and 2 courses, I stayed at Southview. I felt totally at home staying at Southview Cottage B&B, which is owned by Barrie and Robin and is a short 15 minute drive from Bristol Groundschool. It made the experience of my Mod 1 and 2 exams considerably more pleasurable. A comfortably and homely environment, it undoubtedly enhanced the productivity of my study time. Additionally, the ability to use their Aga to heat my oven meals was generally a big improvement over the microwave counterparts! I should also make a dedicated mention of Barrie's breakfasts which were second to none and meant I was always heavily fuelled for the day ahead! I originally stayed with a friend, sharing the twin room. On my second visit I stayed on my own, but Barrie and Robin would happily indulge me in conversation when I needed a break from the books, which was greatly appreciated. In summary, my 4 weeks at Southview felt like a home from home and I would gladly recommend their accommodation.

Really lovely

I was at the south view cottage in congresburry. Host were very nice and concerned about me. They tried to make my stay as good as possible. The rooms are confortable and quiet. It was ideal to work on ATPL. The breakfast fast incredible ! By far the best i ever had. For sure i will go there if i come back in the region. They are really lovely.

Fantastic choice

Having chosen to stay at this accommodation for all three of my modules, I can highly recommend it. I stayed alone on all three occasions, but you have your own twin room with coffee/tea and TV, private toilet/shower/sink, and a large dining room with table to allow enough space for all your paperwork. The hosts, Barrie and Robin were fantastic throughout, allowing me to come and go at any time without issue. Barrie was always on hand to provide any cooking facilities you may have required, and she really gave the whole stay a homely feel, despite my unsocial work behavior! Robin was always happy to chat about your day, and I thought he was really kind with constant re-assurance. Together, they give you the perfect break from the pressure of the course, and certainly helped me to get through! For those that may prefer to eat out, there are several pubs within 10-15 mins drive, but I chose to buy my own food and cook it when I got back to save time. On the subject of food, I can HIGHLY recommend Barrie's cooked breakfast, as others have mentioned, it really is a great start to the day, and a chance to review last nights notes. Traveling time was never longer than 20 mins to BGS, even with morning traffic (generally 12-15 mins). Overall, the accommodation was very comfortable, fit for purpose with plenty of space, and suitably private, essentially being half of the downstairs house for your own use (with closable door for privacy). I can't recommend this venue enough, wonderful hosts, great accommodation, and minimal fuss for traveling to and from BGS. An excellent stay, thank you Robin and Barrie!

Great value, wonderful hosts and a lovely breakfast that set me up for the day, every day. This accommodation is ideal for both the revision courses and between exams as you have a dining room to yourself to get work done in the evenings. Use of the fridge and microwave also helps for the mid-cramming 'meal for one'!
