Our 2nd visit to Lin's lovely B&B - it was like we had never been away - we just picked up on the friendship we formed last time we were here. It was a delight to sit in our roomy conservatory in an evening looking out over her delightful garden which was amass with flowers. After a very comfortable night's sleep we ate a delicious breakfast in Lin's gorgeous dining room - so much attention to detail. We sat chatting and watched the numerous varieties of visiting birds also having their breakfast. This is a lovely place to stay when visiting the many attractions in this part of Leicestershire.
We booked a night at Woody Lodge and were not disappointed, five stars are not enough! Having stayed in many hotels and bed and breakfasts around the world Woody Lodge is certainly one of the best. Lin is an excellent host, warm and welcoming, the room is spotless and the breakfast was delicious. Set in a quiet location with a secluded, beautiful garden it makes a perfect retreat for the weary traveller, the bed is huge and so comfortable. If you're looking to stay in this area look no further! We had dinner at The Windmill in Wymeswold, can thoroughly recommend that too!
We attended a wedding at Prestwold Hall at the start of March, during the Big Freeze of 2018. Fortunately, we had no problems on the roads and upon our arrival, our hostess Lin had ensured that the driveway was nice and clear of snow. We were most touched by her thoughtfulness.
I can honestly say that Woody Lodge B&B is one of the very best B&Bs we have ever stayed at and we would happily return in the future. It is in a quiet, peaceful location and even with snow on the ground, we could see how lovely the garden is there. We were perfectly warm and cosy in our room despite freezing temperatures outside overnight. Our room and bathroom were spotless, tastefully decorated and comfortable.
Lin is a kind and welcoming host and she made sure we were well looked-after for the duration of our stay. The breakfast in the morning was simply excellent, with plenty of choice. Thank you once again, Lin!
We were coming to the area to attend the Gala Weekend at the fantastic Great Central Steam Railway and we also wanted to visit Leicester Cathedral to see the final resting place of King Richard III. We like to stay in the countryside rather than a town and Woody Lodge looked like an ideal place to stay - we were not disappointed - Lin is a charming host and she looked after us exceptionally well. The accommodation was superb - cosy, comfortable, spacious and spotless. Lin is very talented in all aspects of design from the decoration of her house to the immaculate garden - even the breakfast trolley that she delivered to our room each morning was perfectly presented and with so much choice. We would certainly recommend this B&B and we are looking forward to staying here again.
