    A really wonderful place for a quiet, small village getaway. A lovely sized property for my little family of three, super comfy beds and a real homely feel. The surrounding area was fantastic - only criticism is the nettles poking through the fence from the neighbouring field so had to keep an eye on these with our young son, would be great to have these removed so as not to worry but other than that it was perfect. Really lovely and quiet, nice to be able to collect logs for the log burner from the shed on site, lovely park in the small village. Would love to stay again!

    In Woodpecker Cottage we felt completely comfortable. It was cozy and clean. The lokation was an ideal starting point for walking and sightseeing. Further, their was a contact person near the site. The cottage had everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Only a dishwasher would have been able to complete our fortune. We can recommend the cottage unrestrictedly. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

    We absolutely loved our stay. The location is beautiful and very quiet. The enclosed garden was perfect for our 18month old. The cottage was very comfortable with great amenities. We would definitely go back.
