What an absolute treat to go away and not have to pack travel cots, high chairs, baby food, milk, cutlery etc etc. Everything about this hotel and experience is 100% baby friendly but somehow manages to feel luxurious and adult. The Hayloft was a beautiful suite with plenty of

Many hotels and restaurants use discount vouchers to attract customers in quieter times and also to develop customer loyalty. My wife read the reviews for Woolley Grange and purchased a voucher for my birthday for a one night stay at this hotel after reading the terms and

I last wrote a review about this hotel and my experience of 'Afternoon Tea' back in July 2018. At that time, my review wasn't very positive as there were a number of issues which had cropped up. Following this, the hotel manager got in touch with me and apologised for the

This hotel has a relaxed atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The log fires are great to sit beside and read the free newspapers while drinking a coffee or other beverage. A delight for families with small children but also good for couples or older children.

Dear donteatout Thank you for your 5 star review. You are tight, it is sometimes the simple pleasures which feel like such a treat and just the thing to help escape our busy lives for a while. Woolley is just that escape. Best wishes Clare

We have previously stayed at new Park Manor and Ickworth. Although the creche and facilities were great (which entices us to try your hotel next), the food was pretty poor at both - overpriced and the breakfast options were more limited than any other hotel we have stayed at – no bananas or fresh fruit and hard to eat healthily. But most concerning was that the food options for kids at Ickworth were terribly unhealthy, high fat, high salt, high sugar, zero vegetables or protein! Truly shockingly bad. New park Manor was healthier but totally unreasonable, beans on toast for a two-year-old was £7 and took an age to arrive. It just made us feel as if we were being completely ripped off and assume that the hotel was desperate for money - we would prefer to just pay more for the room than feel cornered like that. The rest of the experience at both places was simply fantastic though (facilities, staff, bikes, mini dressing gowns, bottle sterilising, crèche, pool, staff, soft play area, kids toys, atmosphere etc - truly remarkable) hence we are really keen to try Woolley Grange because the concept of this hotel group is so good (& staff have been fabulous) and we want to find a hotel that doesn’t let down on food so that we can return with friends every year. WG looks great especially as children are allowed to collect eggs from the hens in the morning, which our kids would love! We are concerned though about the quality of the food because of our experience in the other two hotels in your group and whether this will just leave us frustrated. Please can you advise: 1. Are your breakfast options as limited as the other two hotels (is there fresh fruit available rather than chopped up fruit in juice?) Are things like oranges, apples, bananas available as in most other hotels? If not, we will bring some with us and is it okay for us to bring these down to breakfast so our children can have them? 2. Do the children’s evening meals include healthy fresh options or is it mainly deep-fried stuff, chips, pizzas etc? 3. Do the children have to wait for parents to select from a menu and then the food to be prepared (expecting a child to wait 20 minutes at a table proved tricky for us at NPM) or is it a buffet option like ickworth (that’s a lot easier)? 4. Do you also charge £7 for a toddler portion of beans on toast or does £7 cover starter, pudding etc too?
The baby listening is the staff listening out view a clever system set up via the phone in the room. This allows mum and dad to have a quiet meal in the restaurant and the staff will only come and have a word if the baby sounds upset.

Hello Rebecca and welcome! From Bath train station we would recommend that you take the train to Bradford on Avon (in fact book your tickets to Bradford on Avon from your original destination). From Bath to Bradford is a 10 minute, beautifully scenic train ride and trains are frequent. Once you arrive at Bradford on Avon, there are usually plenty of taxis available out the front of the station to bring you to the hotel. This should cost no more than £5-£10 depending on the time of day. In terms of rooms, can i advise that you call the hotel reception to discuss. Being an old country house our rooms vary considerably. By chatting to the team we can ascertain the room(s) that best meet your requirements. Hope that helps and we look forward to seeing you next summer!

"Henry Viveash was lovely, great views of the gardens"
"West Gable on the top floor has character quirks (beams) and a huge bathroom, but perhaps not so suitable for babies"
"only go there if you get a decent deal"
"We didn't see the other rooms but might consider paying extra for an upgrade next time"
