Previous visitors' comments about Woodpecker Cottage:
We liked everything about Woodpecker Cottage. The owners were the perfect hosts and their home reared bacon, sausages and eggs were very tasty.

The best dog friendly cottage we have stayed in. The owner gave us a lovely warm welcome and the cottage was excellent. We will definitely return, in fact we won't look for any other cottages when we decide to holiday in that area again.
