Previous visitors' comments about Woodpecker:
On our arrival we were made very welcome by the owner. A very cozy cottage done to a very high standard. There were several welcome gifts for us in the cottage which was a very nice touch. This included wine, milk, scones, fruit and being Easter weekend, 4 Chocolate Chickens! Much appreciated by all. Plenty of public footpaths in the area for some long walks. A most enjoyable weekend.
