Here as a guest for a friend's wedding. Most staff were very smiley and helpful (especially the lady, who I presume, owned it. A little hard to find but a lovely old house. Would have liked to have stayed, had the bridal party not, rightly so, booked it out - certainly appears to be miles ahead of the other local... More

We booked this through Amazon and had the cream tea, 7 course tasting menu and cooked breakfast. We paid a little more for a deluxe room (room 4) which had dual aspect windows. Sarah and Paul are very friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have a lovely stay. The cream tea was lovely and, as it... More

My wife and I were given a voucher for a nights stay here with cream tea, an evening 7 course taster menu and breakfast. We were met at check in by both Sarah and Paul who run this place between them and I would like to point out what a friendly couple they are and nothing was too much trouble... More

We were tempted here by an on line "taster menu" break. Hidden away down a quiet lane this is a lovely little private country house hotel. Once a private house it still feels as much like a home as a hotel and the warm welcome just reinforces the impression. A lovely little bar, cosy lounge with stacks of books and... More

This was our second visit to Woodlands. Previously had gone on a Living Social taster menu only which had been delicious; so when saw a Travelzoo deal with overnight stay we couldn't resist repeating the experience. I left it really late to book so had to do a mid-week as little availability left, but Sarah the owner was very accommodating... More

We spent 2 nights at the hotel. The room was pleasant with a lovely view, Room 9, and the bed was comfortable. Our only problem with the room was noise from the adjoining rooms, especially on our first night - lots of creaking and conversations overheard. We had a wonderful 7 course meal on our first evening and the cooked... More

We stayed one night, with the 7 course tasting menu included. Our room 6 was charming,king size four poster with a shower room en suite, lovely view over the valley. Complimentary tea/coffee biscuits and sherry too, presented in a cut glass decanter in the bedroom. The house is small but comfortable. Lots of books, magazines and CD's to borrow. Newspapers...

Travelzoo voucher used. Booking couldn't be easier than it was thanks to Sarah. On her recommendation, we upgraded which gave us a "deluxe" room. Next time, I will request a bath as opposed to a shower...heh ho, not really a problem! Received a lovely welcome on our arrival, a quick tour and then afternoon tea taken in the bar area... More

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
