    Perfect place to stay we had a lovely relaxing holiday you do have to drive to nearest pub or shop about mile half away. Would of been nice to be able to walk to a local pub. We will be going again as surrounding beautiful and to have your own hot and fencing all round the cottage makes it so private and fantastic for our 2 dogs very secure lovely place.

    Woodpecker cottage is a perfect holiday for relaxing and getting together with friends. It has all the amenities you could ask for. Very clean and the hot tub was all set up and ready to go. Excellent customer service from the owner Helen right from the very start in providing precise directions to returning my sisters library books that we had left the next day. Couldn’t have asked for a better break. Thanks Helen we will definitely be booking again 😃

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Hi Lisa, no problem returning the library books, glad they reached you so quickly, hope your Sister’s studies go well.

    Had a fab holiday. Was secure for the dogs and child, didn’t get much chance to explore the area as was only there for a weekend but felt very relaxed when I left. Sometimes you just have to do nothing. Thank you for a very welcome break.

    A quick random holiday as the weather was guaranteed for the week ahead and with a wheelchair person and two dogs this is a hard task at the best of times, but I booked the evening before and went the next day. Woodpecker Cottage is the best holiday that we have had that totally matched our specialised needs, it felt relaxed and was perfect and the grounds were beautiful and clean too. Thank you Helen for your accessible and dog friendly accommodation 10 out of 10😍

    The woodpecker cottage is set in a lovely location and is close by to a lot of places to visit, which is one of the reasons why we would like to return to explore more of the local countryside and attractions. Plus the hot tub was amazing.....
