Woodlands is a real gem and very convenient for my work in Halifax and Bradford. Barry and Sue's house is beautiful with gorgeous gardens and in a wonderful location. The welcome you receive is second to none, including helpful advice on places to eat. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast superb, the atmosphere warm and welcoming - and all at... More

A perfect place for any visit to Bradford or Halifax if you like peace and quiet. Off the main road, but you get great directions. Sue and Barry are caring and delightful hosts and their B&B is a home away from home, spotlessly clean and welcoming. Beds are comfortable, extra blankets etc. are available and Sue gives you fresh milk... More

I stayed at Woodlands Guest House for 5 nights and it was an extremely wonderful experience. The building itself, in my opinion, has a certain character. I was lucky as the weather was glorious and the garden at the back of the house was like a place that you only find in a movie. For a non English person like... More

I stayed for two nights and it was lovely. The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and very attractively decorated. The owners were lovely friendly people and very helpful. The breakfast was gorgeous. Considering this guest house is down a narrow lane just off a busy main road, it's a very peaceful spot with a fabulous garden where the owners are... More

This charming period house up a tiny lane with a fabulous back garden evokes a country setting despite being just off the main street in Shelf. The house is quiet, the rooms are clean, bright and delightfully decorated, and the full English breakfast is excellent. Our hosts Barry and Sue made every effort to ensure we were comfortable and had... More

Disappointed we could not find accommodation for Le Grand Depart, we decided to find a base and do some of the route ourselves the following weekend. Fortune favoured the brave when we found this lovely, charming B&B in Calderdale. Barry and Sue open their home to guests, and combine their homely charm with professionalism. We were offered tea and biscuits... More

I cannot say enough about our fantastic stay with Woodlands Guest House! I found the place through TripAdvisor while researching accommodations for the Tour De France: Grand Depart Yorkshire. Tip: If you're going to look for accommodations for the TdF, you better book months ahead of time, not weeks, like I did! I was so grateful to find WGH and... More

We have just returned from the woodlands guest house after a one night stay. Found the house easy enough. Barry and Sue very hospitable, couldn't do enough for you. The house and gardens have a lit of history that Barry is more than willing to share with you. Lovely breakfast. Room was good to had a good nights sleep. Would... More
