BFB's Overview

Remember those chic country retreats you used to go to before your little darling(s) arrived? All, huge V-Spring beds, Eygptian Cotton sheets, fluffy bathrobes, luxury toiletries and spas? Believe it or not, there are places just like that out there that are not only stylish and indulgent, but also boast a crèche and a seemingly effortless, never forced, feeling of family-friendliness. These little pieces of heaven for parents and their off spring are a collection of country house escapes from Wiltshire Worcestershire and Cornwall, to Dorset, New Forest and Suffolk. Each hotel has its own personality and unique vibe but all are an inspired mix of the contemporary and the historic.

Woolley Grange is a wonderfully atmospheric Jacobean mansion set in 14 acres of beautiful grounds with an open-air heated pool that is fantastic in spring and summer, and impressive roaring log fires making it exceptionally cosy and romantic in winter. A brand new spa with indoor pool has been added and, combined with the well run creche and new kitchen garden with play kitchen and, star-attraction, chickens, it's the icing on the cake at this brilliantly parent-friendly country house hotel, which also has a handy location within walking distance of a pretty village with bistros and a short drive from the Georgian splendour of bath with its many attractions.



All 26 bedrooms are individually designed and vary in size and character, some withglamorous feature bathrooms, but all with the cosiness of home. Patchwork quilts and antiques - everything is touchable - add to the ambience. Most rooms are housed in the Main House but some are in the Stone Cottage, Coach House and the Pavilion building, which has the most contemporary style rooms. All use the hotel's own babylistening service allowing parents to enjoy relaxing evenings in either the casual Orangery bistro or more formal, and acclaimed, main restaurant.



During the day, along with the kitchen garden and spa, there are acres of grounds to explore plus a brilliant creche/play room which can be used by parents with their children anytime, or from 10am - 4.45pm with babies and children cared for by qualified nannies. Thanks to the creche, parents can enjoy indulgent massage and beauty treatments, explore the pretty town with its friendly pubs and bistros, or venture into Bath for boutique shopping, museums or the world-class spa.

However, there's little need to travel to the spa as the Spa at Wolley Grange' is wonderfully designed and on the doorstep. It is located in the Walled Garden and has a glass wall along the pool so that the gardens become a spectacular backdrop to family swims, which are not restricted to set time slots but available at all times. There's a lovely decked area outside and a juice bar inside, along with two treatment rooms, a sauna and steam room, and a quiet relaxation zone. Treatments will take inspiration from the garden, featuring herbs, flowers and vegetable ingredients, the experience will be relaxing and therapeutic.

Accommodation Overview - Classic Double

These elegant double rooms have extra space for two children (max incl. infants) and offer beautiful views across the front lawns to the countryside beyond.

Located in the impressive 17th century main house, each has an en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower. They are lovely rooms for a romantic country break.

Location Information

Wolley Grange is situated on the fringe of the medieval wool town, Bradford on Avon and just 8 miles from the city of Bath. It is an ideal stop-off en-route to Devon and Cornwall but also a great place for a week's family holiday thanks to its proximity to Longleat Safari Park with its new Postman Pat Village and toddler-friendly play zones, which is within 30-minute short drive.

If staying longer than a few nights, do take advantage of babysitting for a night at the Fat Fowl Restaurant and Jazz Cafe about a mile's stroll from the hotel, who's chef has won Wiltshire Chef of the Year. Its Jazz nights are very popular. For a family lunch, try the Seven Stars pub, 3 miles away in Winsley, which serves great food and has a childrens menu and garden. Although, the hotel's restaurant is probably one of the best places to eat in the area.
