Woodlands Guest House is a delightful ETC 4 star graded bed and breakfast with stunning enclosed gardens. Quietly tucked away up a private drive, offering elegant nineteenth century bed and breakfast accommodation with period features throughout. Renovated over the past 20 years, the house includes period fireplaces, panelled doors, wrought iron and stone staircase and old wood furniture. We encourage guests to explore the one-acre garden, sit beside the wall fountain on a terrace with a view of the huge lawn or take a drink down to our summerhouse to watch the fish in the lily pool. Woodlands benefits from a beautiful landscaped garden where guests are welcome to relax. It is also an ideal retreat for business people working in the area, special discounts are offered for longer stays. WIFI is available free in all rooms - a small charge for heavy use.
There are plenty of visitor attractions nearby. The atmospheric village of Haworth where the Bronte sisters wrote their famous novels is a 15 minute drive. If you like the outdoors, the nearby Pennine hills are perfect for walking, cycling or just enjoying a picnic in a beauty spot. Sue and Barry can supply maps, walks books and plenty of suggestions! Our bed and breakfast is tastefully decorated throughout and each room is equipped with a colour television and a hospitality tray. All bedrooms benefit from either en-suite bathrooms or private facilities. We are within walking distance of two excellent pubs for evening meals. Off-road parking is available to guests.
We have three bedrooms: a ground floor single with its own en-suite shower room and toilet and upstairs a twin-bedded room and a large double bedroom. The upstairs rooms have private shower room/toilet facilities. Each bedroom has been individually decorated using ethnic tapestries, unusual textiles and original paintings and prints from Sue and Barry's own collection - fruits of their former travels. You will find fresh flowers, in season, from the garden to greet you and a jar of homemade cookies beside the tea tray with its array of herbal teas, Yorkshire tea, coffee and hot chocolate. For the chilly months there are good duvets, electric blankets and our wonderful renovated cast iron radiators to keep you cosy. Our bedrooms are utterly quiet - no road noise- just the birds in Spring.
Both of your hosts, Sue and Barry, are excellent cooks and use locally-sourced ingredients where ever possible in the hearty (but almost fat-free) cooked breakfasts. When we say "You are welcome!" we do actually mean it. Sadly, we do not cater for children under 12 or for pets
Closed over Christmas and New Year. Cheaper rates for twin rooms, please contact for more details.
We are tucked away off the main A6036 that runs between Bradford and Halifax. A sat nav rarely finds us! So the best thing is to phone us for directions either from the main road where Tom Tom has left you (no sign of Woodlands there) or before you set off. A good landmark is the lorry entrance of Interface Mill - we are directly opposite up a single track drive.
