Every need catered for
Lovely Christmas break. Secluded, quiet and picturesque location with good walks. Accommodation very comfortable with every need catered for. Our children enjoyed the games room and local pet cats and chickens. Would recommend for anyone looking for a quiet break with beautiful views and walks. Location around 20 minutes from beaches and supermarkets.

Restful holiday
We all had a restful and thoroughly enjoyable holiday and thank everyone for making us feel very welcome. We have no suggestions as to how to improve on what was a remarkable holiday experience. The birdfeeders outside windows were constant source of amusement and our two dogs thoroughly enjoyed one of the best dog friendly spaces we have ever encountered. Both were sorry to leave! Best wishes from Nick Cheryl Steph and James.

Lovely place to stay in West Wales
We stayed in Woodpecker Barn for four nights and had a super time. The whole place is immaculate with a lot of care taken on the details. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to explore the coast and the countryside. There are some excellent pubs in the surrounding villages offering great food. Thank you to Chris and Claire for a brilliant break.

Peaceful!
My Husband and I had a wonderful time at Valley View Cottages.What we liked was no traffic which makes it super safe for children. Peace and quiet and an array of birds on the feeders.We fed the chickens and had fresh eggs too. The cottages are well equipped with everything you require. Including a washing machine and dishwasher! Would recommend to anyone. Would love to return again someday with our Grandchildren. The hosts Chris and his wife are lovely. They are at hand should you need them, but they also leave you alone.

Dog heaven
We had a lovely stay at the cottage. The cottage is in a peaceful location and is ideal for visiting the many beaches and walks in close proximity to the cottage. The cottage itself is well appointed and very cosy. We couldn’t have asked for more and our dogs were very happy.

What a find!
Just had a week's holiday in Woodpecker Barn & what a lovely cottage it is. It's very clean & comfy & has everything you need. It's just perfect if you have dogs, with your own enclosed garden and the safe communal garden as well, they loved it and didn't want to leave! Lots of places to eat nearby, we particularly liked The Nag's Head which is just down the hill & The Daffodil Inn which is a bit further away (about 10 miles), both are very dog friendly. Chris & Clare are doing a fabulous job & we wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Thank you so much Sue for your lovely review. We know how important it is for guests to have a 'home from home' and feel that they want to come back each day to a clean and comfy cottage. We also appreciate that a safe place for your dog to run around is essential too, so thank you for commenting on that. We certainly hope to see you both again Regards and thank you Clare and Chris

Perfect Place
The Barn is in a superb location to aid the relaxation of West Wales. All the rooms were well equipped and decorated, we wanted for nothing. The enclosed garden and communal garden were a real bonus for our dog to enjoy. Fabulous to be so encouraged to recycle and consider the environment. Wonderful time, will return soon I hope.

Thank you so much Dawn for your wonderful review. We are glad you found the cottages well equipped, we try to make guests stays like a home from home. Thank you for mentioning our recycling too, the environment is very important to us, which is also why we have swapped to glass bottles for milk. Thank you again and hope to see you again soon Regards Clare and Chris

Cosy, modern barn conversion in lovely countryside
We stayed for a few days over New Year in one of Chris and Clare's barn conversions with our 8 month old daughter. They were very accommodating and provided a cot and high-chair. Our barn had modern decor and was well-equipped and easy to keep warm with electric heating. There are some nice walks from the barn and the beautiful pembrokeshire coastline within 30 mins drive.

An idyllic location for peace and tranquillity, and superb for dog owners
Located near Boncarth, Pembrokshire. Woodpecker Barn is part of a small group of four cottages called Valley View Cottages. Clare and Chris are wonderful hosts and made sure we were settled in with everything we needed. There was milk, tea, coffee, sugar and biccies in the cottage so we were able to have a cuppa the minute we arrived. The dogs were made welcome and the garden is secure as long as you haven't got a dog that likes to jump fences (our lurchers are too lazy to bother). There is everything you could possibly need in the cottage including a washing machine and dishwasher (I don't even have one of these at home) and the cottage is immaculate and cosy. The surrounding area is great for dog walks and there were maps and info sheets giving details of dog friendly places to walk and visit. The Wildlife Centre at Cardigan is a great place to walk and our favourite beach is Poppit Sands. There is a local pub and a small grocery shop a short drive away and there is a Tesco Superstore in Cardigan with a petrol station if need be. This is such a beautiful place to stay and we have just booked again for 2018.
