Woodlands is a step back in time to long summers of croquet on the lawn and champagne cocktails on the terrace before supper and a glass of brandy by the fire before retiring for the day.
Build in 1905 as a gentlemen's country residence. It was the first house on the Mains Estate and sits at the end of a quiet road ten minutes walk from Giggleswick village. Beyond Woodlandsâ€š leafy drive the Yorkshire Dales National Park stretches for miles. The enchanting Lord's Wood borders the house to the west, through which Giggleswick Scar, a dramatic cliff of limestone, popular with walkers, cavers and geologists alike is a reachable by foot. The easier going lower footpath leaves Woodlands to the north for Stainforth Falls and beyond - or just enjoy the spectacular views from the terrace over the Ribble Valley to the east.
Woodlands is a large house set in wooded gardens, comfortably sleeping 19 guests in 10 bedrooms, all beautifully restored and furnished in simple early twentieth century style.
There is a beautiful inglenook fireplace in the drawing room, which overlooks the valley. The dining room seats 18 at a 16 foot table or 10 can enjoy breakfast in the large kitchen.
There is a further pantry kitchen with laundry facilities and a sitting room to get away from everyone else.
The bedroom accommodation is fairly flexible, including a doubles, king-sizes, twin, singles and, a kids triple. There are 4 ensuites and 2 further bathrooms.
There is a small croquet lawn in the garden and the house is stocked with plenty of books, games, CDs and DVDs.
Your pets are very welcome when accompanied by responsible adults.
