Lovely, comfortable hotel to meet family for an 80 th birthday celebration. Very warm, lovely breakfasts and nothing was too much trouble. Very welcoming , I would thoroughly recommend it. The superior rooms are a great size and some of the rooms are on the ground floor, we found this ideal for one of our family who has mobility problems.

Christmas Pudding with the Brandy Cream was lovely. Pretty hotel with a relaxing and congenial atmosphere. Dan & his staff were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended. Good coffee...

We hired Woodlands for our wedding celebrations. From day one right through to our wedding weekend hosts Dan and Megan were professional, friendly and extremely attentive. They went out of their way to help, designing menus, helping with decorations and giving us free reign of the whole hotel. Fabulous unique accommodation and wonderful food.
