Paul, Ed and Kerry were all amazing and saved us from a nightmare last minute situation! After having our weekend plans cancelled at the last minute due to adverse weather, we were lucky that Woodlands Farmhouse was available and the whole team were so helpful and understanding of our situation. The house is beautiful and really cosy, having the spa there is such a bonus as well. We had a chef and wine tasting organised which were both great and the fact we could organise this at such short notice is testament to the good relationship Woodlands retreats have with their suppliers. I would definitely recommend!
We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Woodlands Farm House and Swallows Orchard, its all in the name Woodlands Retreats! Perfect, well equipped house ideal for a large group to spend some time together. The children have entertained themselves in the Games Room or just with hide and seek, lots of secret hideaways. Pet friendly our dog loved roaming the garden or lying on the lovely rugs. Thoroughly enjoyed cooking on the Aga, food seemed to taste better! The Sedum Spa just a brief walk across a little path was a welcome treat everyday, our 2 hour slot fabulous, it really felt like we had a private pool. Would highly recommend for a large group. We stayed at Lower Hedge last year too. We will again, definitely be returning, Thank you Ed for meeting us on arrival...
Booked woodlands farmhouse and swallows orchard for my sisters hen party. We stayed Friday-Sunday. I honestly couldn't have been happier with how the weekend went. From booking the properties, the company were so helpful and very quick at getting back to all of my questions. When we arrived at the property we were met by Ed who was so friendly and again really helpful. The properties were absolutely beautiful! The photos don't do it justice! The properties were also very clean and really well equipped. The use of the spa was an amazing addition. Lovely pool and really good hottubs. It was a really fun yet relaxing weekend. So glad that I found woodlands farmhouse and myself and all 23 guests want to stay again!
Woodlands Farmhouse was exactly what we were looking for as a base for our large family gathering; three generations aged 85 -12 (& dog). The accommodation was luxurious & comfortable. We really didn't need to get in the car, everything we needed for the week was on site; the amazing pool at Sedum Spa, our own games room, private hot tub & walks on our doorstep. There was plenty of space to spread out in the house, with the youngsters taking over the 'cinema room' and the grandparents completing jigsaws by the woodburner (plenty of logs provided for us to use). We made good use of the aga (baking birthday cakes & cooking all our meals) enjoying the large well equipped kitchen (it is bigger than it looks in the photos online!). A pity we weren't there for longer, but everyone is asking "when can we go back again!"
We stayed in the Woodlands Farmhouse 5 years ago for my Dad's 60th Birthday and my Mom wanted to book this again for his 65th. Its a great house with plenty of space and so much to do! Jacuzzi, pool, darts, TV - we really enjoyed it yet again. There were 15 of us in total and each one of us had a brilliant time. The spa (which wasn't built when we went before) is lovely. The pool is nice and the sauna a must try. Thank you again for a great weekend :)
The Farmhouse and the on-site pool/spa are excellently presented and provide an ideal location for a family gathering. Paul, Ed and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hot-tubs provide an extra dimension and if needed the games-room is there alongside TVs, local walking and books/games in the library. Wells, Glastonbury etc are just a short drive away. We won't be having a fourth year at Woodlands because another party booked it sixteen months in advance!
This is a truly relaxing place to stay. The house is just amazing all topped off with a fantastic gym and pool, the spa treatments were great and all of the staff are very friendly and make your stay very personal. We will definitely be back!
