“Any doubts about this hotel are usually expressed by those not travelling with children, and for those who are, it remains hugely popular. A (well-off) family hotel, then, with imaginative ways of amusing and safeguarding the young. Some bedrooms are quite small; some furniture less than perfect. But adults are fed well and relaxed with treatments and country house hotel comforts, while knowing their offspring are well and happy.”
Written by George Pownall
“A beautiful Jacobean Manor House standing in 14 acres of grounds on the outskirts of the medieval wool town of Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire, Woolley Grange was a family home for 400 years before becoming the first Luxury Family Hotel in 1989.
Woolley Grange still retains the atmosphere of home, arriving tired from your journey, formality is replaced with a warm welcome and an understanding that our youngest guests need to let off steam whilst you need some welcome refreshments. No request is too great, Woolley is your home whilst you are with us; relax, unwind and let us take care of you!
Woolley Grange really is one of the finest luxury family hotels in Wiltshire.”
Kids’ paintings on the office door and dogs snoozing by the fire add to the ramshackle charm..
