Wooldale has all the amenities you could wish for close by.
Our local Co-op is only a few steps away at the top of Pell Lane and stocks all the essentials along with freshly baked bread in the mornings and a cashpoint machine. It is open every day from 7.30am until 9pm. Behind the Co-op there is a public footpath through fields which can take you to Holmfirth centre.
The Wooldale Arms Pub is a few steps further along Wooldale Road. It is a friendly local pub that shows live sports and has occasional live music and pub quiz. Unfortunately it doesn't do food but there are loads of restaurants in the area.
Right next to the pub is the park and kids playground. It belongs to the community who look after the pond which provides a home to various ducks and frogs etc. There are permanent picnic tables provided, a great place to sit and enjoy the view with a pint from the pub. In the summer there is a Party in the Park with hog roast and live music and entertainment.
