After a tiring and stressful working week in London, my husband and I were looking forward to our mini "staycation" at Woodpecker Barn. We weren't disappointed. As many reviewers have said before, Martin and Halla were the perfect hosts, and we loved the beautifully decorated interiors. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both fell asleep in no time shortly... More

Warm and welcoming on a damp November visit, Woodpecker Barn lived up to every expectation my partner and I had. The previous excellent reviews from e.g. snodey and buttonbaggins say it all. Martin and Halla are charming, the Barn itself is so comfortable and peaceful that, as a base from which to visit stately houses, gardens and wonderful countryside, I... More

The Woodpecker Barn (WB) is not your usual kind of B&B. My wife and I stayed here for three nights for our 25th wedding anniversary and what a lovely stay it was. This is not a hotel. Also the term B&B is a meagre description and an understatement for what is a beautiful converted barn and shared home. You are... More

Wow! What a wonderful place to have spent our long weekend. My husband surprised me with this long weekend for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. A warm welcome by Martin and Halla.

My boyfriend booked us a long week end at Woodpecker Barn as a surprise for my birthday. What a wonderful surprise. Everything was just right, and I have very high standards!! The location: out in the Kent countryside, too beautiful and so delightfully peaceful. Gardens: well maintained landscaped gardens; lovingly tended by Martin and Halla; accessible at all times to...

excellent accommodation, lovely hosts. Was perfect for a long weekend! If we are ever in the area again we would most definitely book in here. If you are looking for a good place for an evening meal then try the Abergavveny pub a few miles fro the B&B.

Quiet, rural location, excellent suite (not just a bedroom), friendly, attentive hosts (Martin and Halla), excellent breakfast, beautiful garden. In my experience, bed & breakfast does not get any better than this.

The location, the accommodation, the host and hostess, the breakfast and everything it comprised were of the highest order. A triumph of good taste and unstinting attention to detail. I am almost reluctant to recommend it so highly, as I think it is a bit of a secret.

We stayed for a weekend at the Woodpecker Barn for a wedding down the road. We had a great stay, the suite was very spacious and extremely relaxing, and the shower was great. Best of all was the breakfast, with home-made jams and juice alongside the excellent cooked food. I highly recommend the fig jam if it's available! Martin and... More
