A warm welcome awaits you at this small hotel from Jon, the proprietor.

The bathroom was also of a good size with a large Shower cubical, sink and Loo. Both rooms were spotlessly clean. The bed, duvet and pillows were all 'top quality' and... More

Would definitely recommend the Woodlands. Breakfast was amazing in its content and the owners do a grand job serving it. The room we had was really comfortable and all our needs were catered for even down to good quality shower gel and shampoo. The egyptian cotton sheets and good quality bed made for a cosy nights sleep and the view... More
