7 couples stayed here for a birthday celebration. The house is perfect, loads of bedroom, living and kitchen space. Well equipped and spotlessly clean. Walking distance to Settle for shops and pubs. Lots of space for outdoor living too. Excellent and fast communication from owner. Highly recommended we will definitely return.
We chose Woodlands to celebrate mums 70th birthday with family.....children, grandchildren and great grandchildren (ages 5 to 72). We all had a fantastic long weekend, the house is beautiful, you can’t go wrong with any of the bedrooms.....they are all lovely, comfy beds and lovely bedding and pillows. Hot water was ample at all times, despite our large group.
We are a group that loves to party and entertain. The kitchen facilities and equipment were spot on, we weren’t short on anything. Great selection of pots, pans, plates, glasses etc. We held a murder mystery party on one of the nights, and the dining room was just perfect!
Venue in relation to local amenities great...5 minute walk to lovely pub, and a 15/20 minute walk into Settle.
All in all a great weekend/week retreat....wish we could go back in summer and see the countryside from the patio! Lovely to go back to my Yorkshire roots, if only for a few wonderful days. None of us wanted to leave.
A group of 19 of us, ranging in age from 10 to 50+ got together here for a post-Xmas break. The house is lovely, well-equipped and full of character. Its location is ideal, with wonderful views but also just a short walk from Settle, a lovely town with a railway station meaning a good connection to public transport. We all enjoyed our stay very much. A couple of the bedrooms on the third floor were a bit cooler than the rest, and the showers were adequate rather than powerful, but this did not spoil the overall delight we took in staying here.
19 of us , from 4 families, stayed at The Woodlands for half term week to celebrate a 60 th Birthday . The house is truly magnificent with heaps of space. Fantastic views. Great walks from the door and the train station just 15 mins away It is also within a short walking distance of 5 lovely pubs and Settle village.
The house has been tastefully furnished and has very comfortable beds with luxury linen I cannot recommend this place enough. The attention to detail was remarkable. It was as if the Edwardian family and servants had just left ......
I booked Woodlands to accommodate 12 of us and the location, space for parking on the drive and stunning views (weather permitting) was perfect.
Having the majority of the bedrooms with ensuite facilities significantly helped when getting ready to go out for our evening meal. Good central heating and open fire option adds to the cosiness of this home. Having a main kitchen and additional kitchen/utility room was very useful with plenty of glasses, crockery, utensils. Separate boot/outdoor clothing room was very welcome.
We would book again and recommend it.
Just a few things that could be enhanced. Beds with foot board are a little restrictive for taller people, sofas in lounge would benefit from having a higher back to them and some saucepans needed replacing.
Thank you to David and his team of helpers.
We had such a lovely time - the house is beautiful, owner helpful and walking great. Perfect for group holidays.
Stayed for three nights recently, really the best thing about this place are the awesome views. The house, rooms and bathrooms are reasonably clean..but need to be spruced up in places, curtains in particular. But I must say we had a great time in the house. I would recommend for a family get together.
