  • "We had an early issue which was resolved by the owner."

    We had a very nice vegan welcome pack which was much appreciated. Lovely bungalow, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Excellent base for birdwatching. We had a lovely week. Thank you Alison.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. Glad you had a good week after the hiccup. Hope to see you back again. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely fantastic cottage."

    Cottage and garden very well thought out and ideal for our doggy. Interior was immaculate and each room so comfy and homely. Lovely welcome pack was left for us and our doggy. Close to all amenities in the car, including supermarkets, pubs, fish and chips shop and beaches. We loved our holiday and have already told our friends and family

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback and so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "We had a brilliant holiday and our stay at Woodpecker was ideal."

    The property was very clean, had everything we needed and was ideally located. We found a 20 minute short cut that took us to the beach and into Hunstanton. The owners left a welcome package for both us and the dog - all of which was very much appreciated and all used. A very nice touch. We used some of the restaurant recommendations left and would definitely look at using this property again if we were to holiday in the area again.

  • "Beautiful place to stay, tastefully furnished and decorated, spotlessly clean and perfect location."

    The added extras of bread, milk and wine was a lovely thought. The dogs are not forgotten either with a welcome pack of dog bowls towels, balls and biscuits. I can't wait to return with my dog Ralph as he enjoyed the stay just as much as I did. Thank you so much for a wonderful, relaxing break.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback and we’re so pleased that you and Ralph had a lovely holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Woodpecker was a very comfortable and clean property with all the features I enjoy in my own home."

    The enclosed garden was a bonus when taking my Black Lab. Woodpecker has South facing back garden, making it a sun trap and is not overlooked at all. The owners have put a lot of thought into what visitors are looking for. It is very quiet in the new estate, and located excellent for visiting a beautiful area. With superb Sandy beaches. We enjoy our stay very much. Minor point to make: The vacuum cleaner was completely blocked so I had to completely clean and service this before using. Thank you to the owners for giving us a lovely holiday.. I would rate Woodpecker 10 out of 10 a home from home place to stay with plenty of parking. David H.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback and glad you enjoyed the property and had a lovely holiday. Sorry to hear about the vacuum cleaner and will ensure this is regular,y checked in future. Property Owner

  • "Had a very comfortable time at Woodpecker, thank you and have already recommended to family & friends."

    My only request would be better directions to the property it was not on our Satnav or Google maps would have hated to find in dark. Did not spoil holiday we had a wonderful time, thank you.

    Hi I’m sorry you had difficulty with the satnav directions which we will take on board. However I don’t see how a rating of 50 out of 100 is justified because of poor directions. Also of note is the fact that we accommodated your last minute request to extend your stay so it can’t have been that bad and you recommended us to family and friends. Perhaps you can further explain the harsh score as it cannot purely been down to directions! Property Owner

  • "Lovely property."

    Perfect base for exploring north Norfolk. The house is very well equipped. Importantly, the beds are comfy! Fenced in back garden was perfect for our pup and our boys loved having the playground right outside the front door - what a great surprise! The little extras like cookies, bread, milk were all appreciated. Perfect sized house for 2 adults, 2 young children and a dog. You wont regret booking this house! Thanks to the owners - super stay.

    Thank you for your wonderful review and we are thrilled you had a lovely stay at our property. Property Owner

  • "Excellent ,in every way."

    Chris and I enjoyed every minute we were there. We knew the location and have spent many hours there over the years. The accommodation just made the trip in every way. From woodpecker as a base ,it made a great week. We will most certainly use Sykescottages again.

  • "Lovely comfortable modern bungalow."

    We enjoyed the fact it was new and well equipped. A really good location for exploring the area. Highly recommended. (One minor point to note was that the bath took ages to fill, maybe a maintenance issue?)

Ringstead 2.5 miles.

Perched upon tranquil grounds in Hunstanton, Norfolk is this quaint single-storey cottage, Woodpecker.

Welcoming four guests to bask in the delightful surroundings of the Norfolk Coast AONB, Woodpecker enjoys a peaceful, enclosed garden, two wonderfully-appointed bedrooms and inviting living spaces, ideal for individuals who are desperate to escape the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.

Enter the property to discover a pleasant and well-equipped kitchen/diner hosting all the necessary appliances to make your self-catered stay a success; kick back in the appealing living room and catch up on your favourite show with use of the Smart TV as the designated chef prepares a tasty dish.

Relish family mealtimes at the dining table, or when the weather permits, venture to the enclosed garden to tuck into a feast as the sun sets.

When the night rolls in, retire to one of two bedrooms, either a king-size or a twin, both thoughtfully decorated with a light and airy interior; when morning comes, freshen up in the family bathroom or for a slow start, indulge a long soak in the bath.

If you can tear yourself away, venture into the village of Ringstead, an area peppered with walking trails, restaurants, pubs and of course, the beautiful pebbled Ringstead Beach where you can swim, kayak, windsurf or simply admire the beautiful coastline.

Well-positioned to explore the gardens at Norfolk Lavender as well as Ringstead Downs, you will never be short of things to do here.

Further afield in Holkham, Holkham Hall and Estate awaits, a stunning Palladian country house where you can tour the grounds, embark on a deer and wildlife safari, and delve into Holkham’s rich 400-year heritage and innovative future.

For history buffs, spend the day in King’s Lynn admiring Red Mount Chapel, traversing Lynn Museum or take a relaxing stroll along the River Great Ouse.

For a truly memorable getaway in Norfolk, book a stay at Woodpecker.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
