Having travelled up and down the U.K for business in recent years, I have to say that nothing quite comes close to my short stay at the Woodlands Guest House. This incredible hidden gem situated in magnificent landscaped gardens off the main road was full of character, charm and all the allure of a typical English Victorian dwelling. Upon arrival... More

Thank you Shaun for this very positive review. Barry and I work hard to make our guests welcome and comfortable, treating each one as we want to be treated when we stay in a guest house. What we offer are those personal and unique things that hotel chains cannot offer. We always enjoy sharing our much-loved period house with our... More

I stayed at the Woodlands for one night as I was attending a sporting event in Manchester. My room was stunning, with fantastic views of the lovely countryside that surround the Woodlands. There is ample parking outside the guest house, and my breakfast was lovely with the choice of cereals and fruit juice. What impressed me about this guest house... More

A warm welcome awaits you from Sue and Barry. Slept comfortably in best bed(firm) when I've been away from home. Lovely quiet room in a very peaceful and very quiet location. I am partialy disabled and unable to climb stairs. Even though it's not a disabled room it more than fitted my requirements. Front door 3 paces away and the... 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
