Woolley Grange Hotel
Brief Description of Hotel:
Woolley Grange is a luxury family friendly hotel near Bath. A historic Wiltshire hotel perfect for holidays, romantic weekends and spa breaks. The grange’s story begins with the Randolph family in the late 16th century. When the first Francis Randolph died, he left behind a comfortably furnished home with cushions, carpets and feather beds, though nothing on the scale of the house today. The ground floor had just three rooms: a hall, parlour and kitchen.
In 1726, the house – by this time described as a mansion – was sold to the Baskerville family (of no connection to Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, thankfully). The Baskervilles operated as clothiers, making their money from the manufacture of cloth. They certainly took their work home with them: by the end of the 18th century, a factory stood on the site of the present-day kitchen garden.
Woolley is impressive, but never fear, this isn’t a showpiece or museum. Fun isn’t just allowed; it’s encouraged and enjoy some family time.
