  • "A very warm welcome from Sian and Paul who were very friendly and informative."

    The cottage was perfect for 2 adults and 2 young labradors- plenty of room, a lovely enclosed garden and a stone's throw from the secure dog field, which was great for our early morning exercise with the dogs. We have stayed in many self catering properties throughout the UK and Woodpecker Cottage is without doubt one of the best!
