We stayed for one night booked through Travelzoo for the 7 course tasting menu and bed and breakfast package. It was great fun and great service. We opted to pay extra for the wine tasting experience and this was excellent. We especially enjoyed the background info of each wine. This is a delightful character hotel in a lovely peaceful setting.... More

Next a cream tea on the terrace surrounded by trees and countryside. A drink at the bar, a very relxing room with Chesterfields. Then the 7... More

We were welcomed into the Hotel and shown to our room. Bit on the small size and a very small television but wonderful firm mattress and fabulous... More

I went there for a work conference and stayed over the night before. The plus side of the place is that it is a beautiful setting. The view from my room was stunning and the rooms had what was required (every a decanter of sherry!). It had an extremely 'homely' feel to it, with the lounge being full of books,... More

The hotel is in a lovely quiet and scenic location. We received a very friendly welcome from both owners and enjoyed a scone and tea on the terrace. We were on the 7 course taster deal. The food was OK, but not of special quality and probably not worth the cost of buying it on its own. The mussels came... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Woodlands Country House HotelSet at the base of the Knoll in a beautiful part of Somerset, close to the M5, but far enough away not to see or hear it. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, ideal for leisurely walks, afternoon cream tea in the garden, cocktails whilst watching the sun set over the Quantock Hills. A place to relax and enjoy lovely local cuisine, all made at Woodlands. We are proud of our little hotel, and look forward to welcoming you to Woodlands. ... more   less
