We came for an overnight stay and meal but didn't expect how lovely the rooms would be or how welcoming the hosts and the logfire in the bar would be. Met up with some friends for an evening 7 course taster menu experience. Lovely combinations, sometimes surprising, sometime just delicious. Started with a lovely lemony Prosecco and ended with white... More

Last minute trip down south. Great find this one, rooms comfy and warm, staff friendly, nice bar with log fire, free wifi. I had the burger for my evening meal in the bar which was ok. The full English breakfast wasn't cheap but was excellent. I would stop here again.

Having been to Woodlands several times before and indeed having given an excellent rating review on 1st Nov 2014 we were delighted to be given a voucher for a meal there as a xmas gift. Oh dear, it would seem that Woodlands can manage a taster evening menu but not Sunday lunch. When I booked I told Sarah that I... More

At the time of booking the notes in the diary state that one of the guests was a vegetarian and did not eat cheese and we made sure there were menu options that met this criteria. There is no note in the diary regarding cream but if a guest requests that we leave cream off a dish we will always... More

Booked through living social so had no idea what to expect. It's a really lovely country house, the staff are really friendly, the atmosphere is warm and relaxing, really laid back. The evening meal was a great 7 course taster menu and we loved every course. Cooked breakfast in the morning tops it off

We stayed at The Woodlands with our friends, we purchased this as a surprise 30th Anniversary for them. Sarah and Paul who own the hotel were absolutely lovely. The room was welcoming, cream tea, seven course taster menu and full English breakfast fantastic. All in all a relaxing stay, thank you.

We arrived on one of the coldest days of the year but the welcome from Sarah & Paul was a warm one. It was lunch time, the room was ready and within minutes we were in the lounge enjoying ham sandwiches and a welcoming cup of tea, Sarah put the fire on for us. We were in the double aspect... More

Thanks to a Living Social 'Deal', my husband & I stayed at this lovely hotel for our recent 39th wedding anniversary. Before booking, I checked differences between rooms with the hotel; so we had a comfortable night in a Kingsize bed with views across the 'knoll', giving the village of Brent Knoll it's name, and surrounding countryside. The owners &... More

We were blown through the entrance door by the strong and icy winds hitting the country, 2 nights ago. Dark and miserable outside, but with a very warm welcome awaiting us inside, including the log fire blazing in the bar area. Comfortable, pretty bedrooms and a delicious dinner chosen from the A la Carte Menu, delightfully served. Charming and well-travelled... More

We stayed here last weekend on a travelzoo deal which was great value. We loved the hotel with its quirkiness. The staff were great friendly & could not do enough for you. It was very busy when we arrived as there was a christening. But we were quickly given our cream tea in the bar. Our room was comfortable with... More
