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

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 building and gardens are beautiful and attention to detail is amazing. Each morning... More

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...

The location of this place is perfect if you want a mix of peace and quiet, with local villages and towns only a short drive away. The barn itself is lovely. The room we stayed in is very cosy, the bathroom decorated well well, and the living room pleasant. We stayed for one night on the 15 February. Our favourite... More

We stayed for two nights in this first class b&b - part of a beautiful barn conversion with our own bedroom, living room & bathroom. The location is delightful, very peaceful, set in a lovely garden - private without feeling isolated. Our hosts, Martin & Halla, couldn't have been more charming & helpful and the breakfasts were excellent. Highly recommended,... More
