Always go here for a short walk and as a kid loved running up and down the hills, also if you prefer a longer walk you can go through the hedges at the back and walk down to Pugneys lake which is gorgeous and has a cafe and playground as well as sporting activities. Both perfect for dogs and a picnic and I even watched the fireworks from sandal castle on new years! Was beautiful and quite and could see fireworks over all of wakefield.

Call for Hours

I booked for a festive afternoon tea as a treat for our daughter's birthday-as she married at Woolley Hall 9 years ago. It's still as good! We were taken to the library where a log fire burnt and carols played in the background. A very friendly lady served beautiful fresh sandwiches, homemade scones and mince pies as well as scrummy Yule log! Faultless! It's just sad that the hall will close in a month's time. I hope it will find a new and caring owner.

This is a really stunning building in acres of beautiful parkland and you can easily spend a good few hours here. The house is lovely and very well kept/restored and the staff are very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the house and the history. In some of the rooms you feel as though you could almost have been taken back in time to the houses heyday. The grounds are lovely to walk around and there's alsorts to see from the walled gardens, woodland, little children's adventure playground.
