    Excellent retreat in beautiful surroundings. Ideal for getting away from it all!

    The cottage was lovely and we felt like everything had been thought of. It was like a home from home. Our only complaint about the cottage was that the double room was very cramped and we both suffered a few stubbed toes walking around it. Other than this cottage was very well kept and the hot tub was in excellent condition and very clean. Our main disappointment was the location of the cottage. We booked this cottage as it is right in the county side for which would be perfect for us to walk our very energetic dog. We walked for a few miles in all directions to find a nice country walk but it seemed all public footpaths were blocked by a locked farm gate or led to a dead end. We ended up having to drive 15 minutes to walk the dog each day which was a bit of an inconvenience. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and we can't fault the cottage, if you book to stay here just be prepared to drive.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for staying with us. We do have a folder in each cottage, specifically with lots of walks in, some local, some further away. We hope that this helps our guests to explore and enjoy Shropshire and the Borders.

    We had a lovely few days at Woodpecker Cottage and will certainly go back again. The cottage is a little off the beaten path, so a car is a must, but the surrounding area has plenty to offer. My daughter who is a wheelchair user came with us and the facilities in the cottage met her needs perfectly.

    Nice relaxing weekend break with friends. Cottage was beautiful and hot tub made it perfect. Good outdoor patio space, upstairs rooms small but cosy. Everywhere clean and had everything we needed for cooking on our BBQ. Highly recommend and would love to return in the future.

    Very enjoyable stay at Woodpecker, owners friendly and very helpful. Property spacious, clean and had all utilities & equipment required. Lovely sunny aspect & whilst there was some building work going on, noise was kept to a minimum. Would highly recommend. Agree with Previous comments from others requesting a shower screen in upstairs bathroom would have been helpful.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review. We had an empty cottage and a handyman on site for a couple of hours, so we now have a shower screen upstairs.
