Good Hotel Guide Review
Keeping both the kids amused and parents relaxed in a grand Jacobean manor is a feat, but Woolley Grange manages it – from crèche and cinema to spa and pools. Part of the Luxury Family Hotels group (see Fowey Hall, Fowey, and Moonfleet Manor, Fleet), it has thought of most things to give everyone a great break. Grown-ups like the spoiling surrounds of mullioned windows, stone terraces, oak-panelled drawing rooms and spa; kids dive into the games boxes, explore the fairy garden, play on the tree swing, or roast marshmallows and collect hens’ eggs. The crèche and baby-listening service are free, too. Interiors are ‘beautiful’ but not precious; fairground carousel animals in corridors, saggy sofas in the lounges. Bedrooms, spread between the main building and cottages, are comfortably country house with floral curtains, and the occasional antique. Most have baths and showers. Meals are either family affairs – steaks, burgers and pasta – in the orangery, or candlelit dining on more stylish dishes such as duck with pecan granola, and monkfish tail with braised baby gem. ‘The food was incredible. Everyone enjoyed it.’ The hotel has recently added a luxury glamping site with eight suites in its meadow, adjacent to the hotel. Each suite has a double and a twin bedroom, a shower room, living area with sofa and wood burning stove and veranda to sit on. The site has it’s own dedicated eatery: Hideout Café & Bar and glamping guests are allowed to use the spa, pools and children’s club. The site is open from April-October’. (FM)
