  • Mr Addison

    “Third visit to woodpecker, enjoyed seeing farm life.”

    Watched milking of cows and to births of calves ! Would recommend if you want peace and quiet. Lovely owners, very friendly and easy to talk to and loads of information of farm life. Very pleasant stay indeed. Village near by for shops etc, fish and chips very good and massive fish ! Likely to return at a later date. Really enjoyed this 4 day stay. Loved the walks with Rocky my dog. Enjoy if you go.
