The Experience

A pleasure to find ten tranquil acres (woodlands, lawns, lake and walled garden) so close to the centre of Birmingham – run by such special people. This impressive Georgian mansion was donated by George Cadbury to the Quakers in 1903, as a place for study and contemplation. And so it remains. There are corridors aplenty and public rooms big and small: a library, a silent room, a lovely new garden lounge, and a dining hall where organic buffet meals feature fruit and veg from the grounds. Bedrooms, spread over several buildings, are carpeted, comfortable, light and airy, and most have en suite showers. Welcoming, nurturing, historic.

I stay here on a regular basis and it really is an oasis of calm. The gardens are beautiful at any time, the food good and plentiful, staff very helpful, the rooms comfortable and quiet- ask for one away from the main road. There are numerous rooms to spend time in, from tv rooms, to quiet room and even a silent room. The conservatory/garden room is gorgeous, with a wood burner for the winter. The little touches are amazing- wonderful Bee friendly products in rooms, fresh flowers around the place, hot & cold drinks available 24/7, along with fresh fruit and home made biscuits in garden room.


I booked my grandparents into Woodbrooke while they were visiting me in Birmingham. They thought is was so peaceful and pleasant that they would be very happy to return anytime in the future. The staff were incredibly helpful. The room was gorgeous with beautiful large windows. We watched fresh flowers from the garden being arranged and placed around the building and the new extension was the perfect spot to relax with a cup of tea or coffee. Excellent value. I'm sure we could find more things to compliment, but we'll stop there and say we can't recommend it more highly.
