Just back from a lovely weeks break in the Woodside House. Wonderful place; peaceful and tranquil whilst combining plenty of things for the children to do. The swimming pool was lovely and clean and it was even great for a rainy day! Thank you so much for making our stay so lovely. We will be back soon!

We've just spent such a lovely week in Woodside House. There were 10 of us and there was plenty of space for us all not to feel cramped and everything was really clean and comfortable. We loved the pool; clean, warm and the children loved swimming everyday of our stay. The sauna was an added bonus for us adults. Lakely house is in a beautiful location and very quiet and peaceful.
