... like the needle of the speedometer to stray too far clockwise when operating moving machinery so a 5 mile journey took 24 minutes, give or take a few miles... and minutes.
Platform 8 at Huddersfield was its usual concrete self but the train to Leeds was empty due to it being Jeremy Kyle/Loose Women time and outside of the period loved so dearly by commuters.

Eventually I was aided back to bed where I've now been lying for the last 3 days. Rob managed to turn Dolly around and take her back to Silsden to be nearer to ...

We all went on the York Chocolate Story which was really good. You learn all about York's history as a chocolate town (think Rowntree and Terry's) and you get to taste ...
... Green Park for a memorable pitstop at F & M thanks to Sue M and a delicious G&T float. Wandered around past Piccadilly Circus (Cool Brittania shop was fun) and into Coventry garden to buy funny t-shirts and have a quick paella. Eventually headed home with 2 very tired little boys. What a fabulous guide we had in Sue Moss. Then headed up to York on M1 - just had to follow the signs to "the ...

For those interested (Frinster) we had a very lovely chip butty for lunch from the local Chippy at Cross Flats. Couldn't resist it, the smell was drifting up to us along the canal. But my hollow legs still don't feel full!

Historical Traveler Reviews Wood Hall Hotel & Spa Wetherby
The best uk hotel I've visited
Stayed here for a wedding last summer - a fantastic experience.
The rooms were luxurious (with plasma tvs, dvd players etc), the service was friendly and efficient, the food and drink wonderful.
The grounds and building itself are fantastic also - really beautiful.
I stayed at this hotel for one night intended as a relaxing treat for my family. The surroundings were elegant and pleasing. However, I was very disappointed about the service (or lack of) in the hotel. Upon arrival and checking in, I was not given any details on what facilities guest could use in the hotel. Whenever I asked the reception, they were very vague and did not take any care in explaining or showing us what we could do, even though it was not busy at the time.
Stayed for one night at this hotel on business. Beautiful grounds, and beautifully decorated rooms. My room maybe a little small but the decor/comfy bed/plasma screen/bathroom goodies etc make up for it. Food at dinner and breakfast excellent, as is service. Only (small) negative comment I can think of is that it was a very hot night and there was no airconditioning. I would (and have) definitely recommend this hotel if you are in the area.
Lovely surroundings, good hotel, rooms ok
Wood Hall is lovely, very impressive drive up to it and lovely views. We were here for a wedding so didn't spend much time in the room. Don't get me wrong the rooms are lovely but because we had stayed at the Hotel Du Vin the night before they just didn't compare. There's a plasma tv on the wall, comfy bed and nice bathroom. The room is quite small though. The breakfast in the morning was good, big choice of continental and a decent English brekkie. The spa area is also quite small, just a steam room, no sauna. Nice pool and jacuzzi.
I do recommend this hotel but if in the area stay in the Hotel Du Vin instead.
A first class hotel
We stayed at the Hall for 2 nights in February and enjoyed every minute of it, very friendly staff and comfortable rooms made it the ideal place to stay whilst visiting the area.
We stayed here for a friend's wedding in October and it was fantastic.
It's a small (though not particularly cosy) hotel and impeccably presented in a contemporary fashion, as though it was just completed yesterday.
On arrival a chap welcomed us, noted our name and that was it. No check in, how fab!
The room was pretty large with a view of the valley, big flat screen TV, great bathroom with goodies and the fluffiest robes ever.
The food served at the wedding breakfast was delicious, as was breakfast the next day. Service throughout was excellent, though there were not enough staff on in the morning and we waiting a while for everything at breakfast.
I will check out other Hand Picked Hotels following this stay.
I can't write a full reveiw as due to the inneficiency of the reservations department at this hotel I didnt actually get to stay there!
We stayed here for our honeymoon weekend in November 2003. The drive up to the house is very grand indeed as are the public areas. Charming, traditional lounges to have a quiet moment, great swimming pool. Our room was very nice, not brilliant, but had everything we needed. Dinner on Saturday night was fabulous, superb attentive service with an exceptional winelist. So much so that we decided to forego our usual breakfast in bed and get up for another experience. Only to be horribly disappointed, the breakfast was buffet (possibly because the hotel was full with another wedding party) and they had opened up more rooms but only one table of food, so you had to walk quite a distance for a lukewarm average breakfast. What a shame as it ended what was a wonderful weekend on a bit of a downer.
Classic rural piece of elegance
We stayed at Wood Hall on a business/pleasure trip. The accommodations and services were excellent. Rooms were spacious compared to other European accommodations. The entry drive to Wood Hall, perched on a hill in the country is special. Plasma TV is a plus if you like BBC TV.
We had our wedding and reception at this hotel and were more than delighted with it. The rooms are modern and benefit from plasma screen TVs, DVD players, playstations and all Molton Brown toiletries (all of which you don't use if your getting married!). The staff are so lovely and the food is fantastic, it almost feels like you own a country house for the day. If you want to treat yourselves do come here.
