When you enter this house you are immediately left gobsmacked by its grandeur. The facilities are more than sufficient with added extras included a snooker table and small gym area. What is more important is the picturesque views and the stunning setting. Loved every minute of it!
This place has everything you need for a perfect weekend away with a large group of people. Beautiful country side all around you. Comfortable bedrooms, spacious kitchen and lounge areas. Tv and snooker table for entertainement and a patio with a stunning view. I can’t wait to come back here again!
Very clean and tidy house, situated in the middle of lush fields. Couldn’t have been more impressed.... beautiful views, big spacious rooms, nice big kitchen, perfect patio outside for a good BBQ, and a massive games room that’s perfect for big groups of guests.
Definitely coming next year!
One thing you will find with this property is that the photos do not do it justice! From when we arrived at the large black gates and drove down to the front door my jaw was on the floor. It really did take my breath away. The house itself is much bigger than i was expecting with enough room to make the weekend not feel claustrophobic and as if you were on top of each other. The standard to which the house has been done too was very high, it was beautiful but still usable. All the bedrooms were large and comfortable and clean. The many en suits which were attached to the rooms were all very large with beautiful facilities. The Kitchen was massive and was big enough for us to cook a 3 course Christmas dinner for 20 people which turned out fantastic even though none of us had experience using an aga. I would mention that it is worth bringing a few extra kitchen knifes, we brought an extra 6 and it was enough to get all prep, and carving done. The House's sound system was such a great addition the the weekend. with speakers in nearly every room the party was not confined to just one area and it lifted the overall good feeling of the weekend i believe. It is a simple aux cable connection so any phone, iPod or music playing device can be plugged in. The grounds surrounding the property are very well kept and this just enhances the many spectacular views from the balcony which surrounds the property. We are a party of 20 in our 7th year in a row of Christmas weekends and this has to be the best property and weekend we have ever had so far. If you are slightly doubting this as your selection, i would look no further as you will not find a better place.
The house itself is so beautiful and spacious, with a spectacular view. Woodbank is very clean, with great facilities such as a pool table and speakers around the house, plenty of room for parking and a large back garden for games and relaxing walks.
I would 100% recommend and can't wait to stay here again next year!!
Such a huge house in an amazing quaint location. You will find it very easy to relax here. The house comes with all the amenities you will need along with a games room and gym. It also has an amazing garden and outdoor patio for barbecues and meals. The only problem you may have is that you don't get a chance to visit all the rooms because this place is huge! The house also comes with loads of board games and cards and TV and wifi.
Woodbank is a really special home set in a fascinating location. We needed a location for a team building weekend for 20 people, the Woodbank cottage provided the perfect number, sleeping 20 people in 8 huge and charming rooms. Prior to going to the cottage communication with the family was great and they responded to any question we had. The directions to the cottage were really easy to follow and we didn’t have any issues getting there. When we arrived we were completely surprised by just how beautiful the cottage is. Each room has its own personality and character and because of the size it lets everyone share single spaces and really have quality time together. We cooked over the weekend and it was a new experience using an Aga, thanks to its 4 ovens we were able to cook for everyone in one go. I’m pretty sure cooking in an Aga makes food yummier too! The owners have combined the rustic natural beauty of the property with hi-tech new technology such as an integrated sound system. This together with the pool room kept everyone entertained when the weather wasn’t the best. Luckily we did get some good weather and explored first the grounds; these are really well kept and have a variety of trees from weeping willows to apple trees, we were exploring for a few hours and there was still a lot to see. We then explored the local area, we were completely unaware of the history nearby and were once again surprised (spent all the weekend pleasantly surprised) with how much there was to see. What was particularly memorable were the views from the patio, during the day it provides a glowing verdant backdrop, which proved very popular with the ‘selfie’ crowd. In the evening the picturesque bright backdrop is replaced with dusky undulating hills lit up by the moon light. We were lucky enough to see the night sky lit up with stars which is not something you get in the major cities we were all from.
Each and every person really enjoyed there stay at Woodbank and I would really recommend the cottage for large families and hope to return again next year!
