Good Hotel Guide Review

‘As soon as we arrived, the kids got started on the Woolley Grange Sheep Challenge treasure hunt,’ writes a Guide insider after a stay at this ‘beautiful Jacobean manor house in lovely grounds’. Part of Nigel Chapman’s Luxury Family Hotels group, it has ‘scores of considerate little touches’ making for real child-friendliness: ‘space to run around, fairy houses, a hidden glockenspiel, swing ball, cricket, badminton…’ Comfy sitting rooms with log fires are patrolled by resident spaniel Rex, while bedrooms – some in annexes – are traditionally styled, including doubles, trebles, and suites such as the Hayloft, with sitting room and two bedrooms, sleeping seven. At night families might take an early supper together, or children have high tea before parents sit down to a candlelit dinner. Chef Jethro Lawrence uses seasonal produce from local suppliers and the kitchen garden, in such dishes as confit duck leg, pancetta, shallot potato cake, garlic kale, caramelised red onion, demi-glace. At breakfast, guests devour the morning’s newsletter over such ‘delicious’ dishes as poached eggs and spinach on a toasted muffin. ‘Friendly staff went out of their way to be helpful.’ (AR-T)

Guest comments

'The building and the facilities for small children are great but meal service was slow and disordered. ' - CR - February, 2017
'We visited Woolley Grange last week with our three children and had a fantastic time; we couldn't have asked for more from a holiday. For the first time in a year (since having our twins) we felt we could truly relax! The facilities were fantastic, the staff were lovely and the Den was a hit with the kids so we even managed some time off every afternoon. ' - Zoe Hinton - April, 2015
'We were assigned the McIntosh room which was charming and spacious with great views on two sides and a very comfortable bed. On the 24th dinner (we both chose lamb rump) was delicious. Dinner on Tuesday 25th was less good. The starters and dessert were tasty but our main courses were well shy of GHG standards. The cooked breakfasts on both days were disappointing ' - R O - February, 2014
