Children have their own special, extensive menu with lots of choice from the vegetable garden, farm fresh eggs, local fish and meat.
Adults must sit in the back, everything revolves around the little ones.
A young mum from Somerset, Julie Brennan, says it’s the best place in the area for families with young children, she has joined the spa and takes her children swimming almost every day.
She said: “The Woolley Barn is beautiful and in a stunning location, with lots to do and explore.
“If you have young children, this is the perfect place to go because everything is designed to make life easier for parents.
“The food is delicious and the staff is very helpful and friendly.
“The kids have a great time and love the indoor pool and playroom.
We have stayed several times and have now become members…highly recommended.”
Outside there is plenty to do on the farm, collect the eggs from the chickens, feed the ducks, take care of the farm animals and tractors.
It’s hard work, the youngsters will be very tired at the end of the day.
And here’s the thing.
There’s free supervising and babysitting, plus a great kids’ club with outdoor activities, so if you want to feed the kids early and get them home for the night, you can take advantage of a good dinner by candlelight in complete safety. they are dreaming happily after a busy day on the farm.
After you book, the hotel contacts you to see what you need in your room, baby cots, a diaper bin, a bottle warmer, a chef will even cook you mash, you literally don’t have to bring with you.
It’s time for hotels and vacation destinations to realize that people with kids are big business, if the kids are happy the adults can have a great time.
Instead of hiding them under the table or fighting with them to stay still in a formal restaurant at Woolley Grange, they feel welcome with plenty to do and fun to have.
It’s a beautiful location, local families can use the facilities for a short break and not far for travelling.
Sounds like lots of fun and a great countryside escape with the little ones.
