Search for room availability
Standing in 14 acres of landscaped grounds, the beautiful Jacobean manor of Woolley Grange is an elegant and luxurious destination to spend a short break in the UK. The medieval house has been a family home for over 400 years, and was converted into the UK’s first luxury family hotel in 1989. Since then, Woolley Grange Hotel has become ever more popular, combining traditional features with contemporary facilities and a fabulous dining experience.
The award-winning AA rosette restaurant prepares delicious meals from local sourced produce and a stunning orangery. The carefully selected wines compliment the food perfectly, and there are private dining rooms available for family celebrations or private dinners.
Woolley Grange Spa is another highlight to this fabulous hotel, providing indoor and outdoor swimming pools, two relaxing treatment rooms, sauna, steam rooms and a refreshment area. The outdoor areas at the Woolley Grange are the perfect place to unwind with an evening stroll. The walled garden houses more than 100 medicinal and culinary herbs, cut flower borders, potager style vegetable planting including asparagus beds and many fruits including rhubarb, raspberries and fan trained gooseberries. Produce from this patch is used in the restaurants dishes.

Great base where we visited longleat, stonehenge, & the city of bath. All these attractions are worth a visit but the hotel itself is also a superb destination. Staff were amazingly helpful where nothing was a problem. Certainly a hotel i would visit again & i would schedule in hotel time as the facilities are fantastic. Collapse

Our welcome to Woolley Grange was somewhat chaotic,there literally was children running around all over the place right from our arrival. Possibly our own fault somewhat as we booked this location at the last minute to have a relaxing night away, we should have done our homework more comprehensively. our room wasn't ready right away and we were shown to the restaurant which had a lot of food on the floor. We had booked spa treatments and by 2pm our room still wasn't ready, so off we went for our treatments. The pool was full of children and loud running around doing what children do. Our treatments weren't as calm as we envisaged with the sound of kids shouting in the background. The treatment it's self was carried out most most professionally and competently by a nice lady called Debbie. Our room got a big thumbs up it was spacious warm and relaxing, it made up somewhat for our first impressions. The staff were friendly. Breakfast again was a little chaotic. A brilliant place for families, not the best for a quiet adult only break. Collapse

Stayed with our 6 year old twins for the weekend. We knew it wasn't cheap, but the wide range of child friendly activities and facilities swung it for us. So.... The good stuff The staff in general were great - special mentions for Sam and Luke who were outstanding but there were exceptions! (See the bad stuff)! The Kids food menu was excellent and really good value. (We ate from it too)! The Sheep trail activity was well thought out and great fun. The Games room was a welcome inside refuge, and the crèche staff were lovely, creating a very welcoming atmosphere. The bad stuff These points echo loads of previous reviews, so disappointing they're not being addressed. Our room was very noisy until 11.00pm at night and from the early hours in the morning due to noise from the kitchen. The rooms were very spacious but really tired and in need of some attention. There was only a hand shower in the bath. The bathroom itself was huge - great opportunity to install a nice free standing bath in the middle of it! Little things in the room like no remotes for the DVD players and a tiny kettle with a very short lead that required a real effort to reach a plug socket. Slightly haphazard service at dinner - drinks arriving after food when chased. The bill was wrong and took some detailed analysis by us to highlight the overcharges. As mentioned earlier two or three of the staff were amazing but there were a similar number who were silent and not at all proactive. In summary - a bit more attention to detail would make a real difference. Little things like welcome packs or gifts for children, refurbishment of the rooms and more coordinated management in certain areas would make it worth the money, when as things currently are, I wouldn't say it is!

We went here for a 2 night break, and it was too short. The hotel itself is so well set up to cater for children of all ages. I have a 2 year old toddler, and she loved it. Farm animals, books, games, and for the adults, peace is provided through a listening service so you can enjoy dinner. The only down side on this visit was the weather, but I would definitely go back. I couldn't recommend it more. Collapse

We had a wonderful 4 nights at this hotel. The staff were amazing, the food was delicious the room had character and was cleaned daily and my normal issue of not having enough towels or tea/coffee in the rooms was alleviated. The evening meals were of very high standard. There were plenty on the menu for our kids 7&5 to enjoy. We loved the games room, the DVD players in ours and kids rooms, the warm fire to relax in front of, and the fantastic customer service throughout. It is a convenient base to explore the local area: Bath, Bristol etc. Our boys got to walk the hotel dog Rex which they loved as they also enjoyed their waffles and boiled eggs for breakfast every morning. Great hotel, lovely grounds, perfect for families with young kids, we have already recommended to friends and would definitely return. Collapse

A wonderful place for parents to relax. We had a 4-night break at Woolley with our 17-month old and thoroughly enjoyed it - so much so that we extended our stay by an extra night. A huge relief to stay in a hotel where babies and children are welcomed rather than tolerated, with lots of little details that make a big difference - eg bottle-washing service means you don't need to bring too much kit, and baby listening meant we could enjoy a relaxed baby-free dinner without worrying about the baby monitor (what a treat!). Staff were friendly and helpful - special mentions to Solange and Luke as well as all the patient restaurant staff who cheerfully picked up our toddler's food off the floor. The hotel is a beautiful old stone building set in lovely grounds. Our room was beautiful and spacious, felt like real luxury. Perfect for a winter break, lots of roaring fires and comfy chairs, with space for kids to run around. There is plenty to do in the hotel as well as the local area - Bradford-on-Avon is a quirky old town, and we visited Bath for the day. Hotel was much quieter mid-week than at the weekend, when the spa was quite a bit busier (pool is lovely but quite small, so better when fewer people around) - so consider going then if you can. The food and setting for meals were excellent throughout - the Orangery is a lovely bright room great for family dining. And evening meals by candlelight felt like gourmet dining. Children under 2 eat for free, which is appreciated given how little of it ends up being consumed... A couple of small things that could be improved. Guests aren't asked to sign for extra charges eg drinks and meals. Which is nice on the moment but it's easy to lose track, and the final bill was confusing (though staff very helpful in explaining and also amending errors). Also some of the kids' meals tasted salty, with staff unable to confirm whether or not there was added salt. The toddler portions were very big and almost adult-sized, which meant quite a lot of waste (or rather extra calories for parents!). But all in all a fantastic place for a family break. We'd love to come back. Collapse
