“Peaceful, beautiful location, brilliantly equipped cottage”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A totally relaxing Easter weekend break in a fantastic location, peaceful and gorgeous setting; beautiful and fully equipped cottage with everything we needed. Underfloor heating excellent, didn't need to use the woodburner. Thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub outside under the stars. Thank you very much for letting us use your gorgeous cottage Sally, we will be back in the future.

“Stunning cottage with peaceful and beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We enjoyed a mid week stay and found the cottage and its surroundings to be simply perfect. The owners Rob and Sally have put a lot of thought and effort into making the cottage warm and inviting with fabulous underfloor heating and a woodburner.
The cottage overlooks a beautiful lake with ducks and visiting Canadian geese. A hot tub is in prime position too enjoying the lake views.
We felt so relaxed and at home at the cottage and can't wait to return during the summer.
We highly recommend Woodpecker cottage ....It's a gem in the beautiful Beacon fell countryside.

“Gorgreous, Peaceful & Relaxing”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed here the first weekend in March and were very surprised by how tranquil it was. The lake at the front was an added bonus, as was the hot tub.

We took the dog to do some walking and had a wonderful time and the pub just over a mile away does lovely food.

We will definitely be returning and recommending!

“Beautiful, Peaceful and Scenic!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I recently visited the Woodpecker cottage with my girlfriend and another couple.
This place is beautiful; it hides in a remote peaceful little location and overlooks amazing views of a private little lake. The lake was an awesome surprise in morning. We arrived at night and assumed there were only fields beyond the gate. The cottage is beautiful and warm and the facilities are incredibly well maintained. The only thing you will need to bring with you is food; everything has been taken care of by the awesome hosts Sally and Rob.

Just returned from woodpecker cottage,I just want to say thanks to Rob and Sally,you should be proud of the little gem you have got there.When my daughter's booked this for Christmas present we were thrilled.But when we arrived we were blown away with location,views and a fully equipped cosy and relaxing cottage,you could not want for more.Rob dropped in to check if ok after arrival,and never bothered us again.The views thru doors onto grounds were amazing even Oscar our dog just sat and watched the world pass .You should try this cottage if you want to really relax,believe me we didn't want to leave,we will be back.Thanks Rob and Sally.

“Amazing cottage”
Reviewed January 31, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed here with friends, Amazing place very clean, peaceful, would give the cottage 5 out of 5.
The hot tub was great, the position of it lets you enjoy the views
We had a visitor....a turkey lol
Would defiantly go back again, fresh eggs there when we arrived, books, cards, DVD player and dvd's home from home
The log fire was a bonus, we had snow, the weekend we went, although with the under floor heating the cottage was lovely and warm
The cottage is very hard to find in the dark, phone call to the owner and she directed us in.
