Amazing Views, quiet, exceptionally clean, dog friendly and very comfortable. This barn conversion is very special. You have to live in it, it slowly gets into your brain and you relax. The hosts obviously really care.

Just had the most idyllic 3 nights at Woodpeckers Cottage. The hosts, Jacqui and David are lovely and Jacqui’s homemade cake and scones were beautiful and a lovely touch. The cottage is immaculate, the scenery is wonderful and we wish we could have stayed longer....More
