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

We had a four night stay and all the complimentary reviews of other guests are accurate and we have to repeat how great this place as indeed Martin and Halla are. The breakfasts are stunning and keep you going all day and the linen and towels are perfect A very peaceful setting.

This is why we use trip advisor so often. We were taking good friends away for their Ruby Anniversary present and wanted somewhere special but where they would also feel at home. Woodpecker Barn fitted the bill exactly. Both suites are superb and contain everything and anything you could possibly need. Martin and Halla are excellent hosts - always there... More

We agree wholeheartedly with previous reviews so it's difficult to pick out anything else to comment on ... most of it's been said before. We stayed for 3 nights and between us tried all the different breakfast options, including the fantastic homemade preserves and fruit juice.

The directions to get here are a wee bit complex but having checked it out on Google street view beforehand, it was not difficult to find. Woodpecker Barn comprises one half of the original 17th century agricultural building. The owner, Martin, met us. He is a friendly, humorous guy and introduced us to his wife Halla. We had a small...
