We stayed here during Peter and Carole's ownership and, when there was a change, we wondered whether it would be as good. We stayed with Jo and Andy in 2011 for the first time and were glad that we did so. They were very welcoming, the breakfasts were exellent and the comfort in the rooms was as good as before.
But Jo and Andy were very busy last Winter and have been upgrading the rooms. We stayed for 4 nights in July, in the same room as we had last year. What a difference! The refurbishment has included the installation of a wet room in the upgrade of the ensuite, just perfect after a hard day walking.
Woodlands is perfecty positioned as a base for walking as Valley of Rocks, Watersmeet and Countisbury are all accessible without using the car.
Needless to say, we shall be coming again next year, but for longer!
