“Beautiful cottage in perfect locatoon”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Absolutely loved the cottage! Has everything you need for a week away or short break! Views are stunning and the standard of the cottage is amazing!
Hot tub is a lovely addition although even without it would be fab!

Good location for garstang, Preston and Blackpool. We visited the south lakes zoo in the lake district from here. About 1 hour away! Great day out.

Would 100 percent recommend a viewing and I will be returning for sure. Thanks sally and rob xx

“Fantastic "a special place"”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Spent a totally relaxing break at the cottage, which we knew we would. Having visited before we knew the area but found new places to walk. We were blessed by some warm weather and spent breakfasts on the patio just admiring the beautiful view in peaceful surroundings. Hot tub was great after a long walk just to relax in. Will be back again for sure.

“PERFECT!”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Very restful cottage, beautifully designed, inside and out. Woodland gardens attract many birds, including herons. Highly recommended.

“A Truly Wondeful place to stay”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just had such a lovely, relaxing weekend stay with friends. Just perfect for chilling in such peaceful and scenic surroundings. It was hard to move away from the lovely cottage but we ventured into Garstang which is a lovely place to just wander around and we took tge short drive up to Beacon Fell country park, amazing views! We would def visit again for longer period to enjoy all tge local area has to offer, some lovely walks and country pubs. We coukd not reccomend this plae enough, the cottage has everything you need for a comfirtable stay, tge wildlife, chicken and animals are lovely to watch and we loved sitting in the hot tub under tge stsrs with a nice glass of wine! Rob was on hand and made the effort to visit, nothing is too much trouble and we will def return Many Thanks!

“A beautiful space and a sense of peace”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We booked to attend a family function near by, but also to have a bit of peace and relaxation over the weekend and woodpecker cottage was perfect. A creative and stylish retreat, rural yet well positioned, with attention to detail that affords a touch of luxury, and is also homely and comfortable. Worth every penny.... a beautiful place to be.
