“instant calm”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Peaceful spot with views over a small lake.Dawn chorus wonderful. Well presented "cottage" with practical kitchen ,effective shower and all warm and comfy. Lots of country walks right from the door and Bowland forest and Fylde coast within easy drive. Dogs welcomed but no fenced in garden so take a long lead if yours likely to wander. Hot tub sited by patio doors so no chilly trek and you can watch the lake birds from the tub.
No local shops so take milk, and your first meal provisions with you.1.3 miles to pub but uphill on the way home and you'll need a torch.
Patchy phone and mobile data locally.
Didn't want to come home.

WOW!! Stunning, beautiful and amazing. Everything was perfect. The hot tub was under a shelter so regardless of the weather we got in it, with a log fire at the ready once we got out. So relaxing and enjoyable. The cottage was out of this world. Definitely going to return :)

“Perfect pick-me-up”
Reviewed February 24, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My husband & I stayed here for two nights with our five year old grandson and it was just perfect. The cottage had everything we needed - the beds were comfy and there was plenty of hot water. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. Unfo. the weather was awful but sitting in the hot tub with a glass of fizz more than made up for it. The setting is idyllic and we watched lots of wildlife in and around the lake. Would recommend The Green Man in Inglewhite - lovely pub with nice food and a play area outside. Bowland Fell Country Park is great fun for walking and exploring. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would recommend this cottage to anyone and hope to return sometime soon.

We booked woodpecker cottage for 2 nights in November. We wanted somewhere special as it was our 30th wedding anniversary. Somewhere not too far from our home town of Blackpool. And it had to have a hot tub. This beautiful cottage ticked all the boxes and was available for the nights we required. For what you get we thought it was an absolute bargain. It did not disappoint. Everything was just perfect from start to finish. The owners were delightful going the extra mile!!! They could not have been nicer or more helpful. We spent our anniversary sitting in a wonderfully hot hot tub, drinking a glass of bubbly (or 3) with our best friends in the dark of the night. It doesn't get better than that. Highly recommended.
