“Brilliant stay helped by wonderful weather”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We all really enjoyed our stay here from a wild six year old to a more sedate grandmother. The highlight for me (Granma) was finding John Ditchfield's studio just over a mile away. Thank you Irene(owner) we loved it.

“Superb Facilities & Location. Strongly Recommended. `”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed at the Woodpecker Lodge at Swans Rest last weekend for a 3 night stay. The site is immaculate and has beautiful gardens and our Lodge had a lovely outlook over the pond & grounds. There was a lot of ducks and a swan and we fed them from our Lodge balcony.

The Lodge itself was very well equipped and comfortable - it was like being at home. I traveled with my 2 year old godson who slept really well in his own room. The Lodge was warm and spacious and very clean. We cooked in the kitchen which had everything required and watched TV in the comfortable lounge area. WiFi was available and was easy to log on to. The beds were comfortable and the Lodge had a family bathroom plus an en-suite. Crisp white towels were provided.

The price paid for the 3 night stay (3 adults + a 2 year old) was very reasonable and represented good value for the facilities available.

A high chair and travel cot were provided upon request and were ready for our arrival which was very much appreciated.

The location was spot on. It was a fifteen minute drive to Blackpool and the nearby village had shops and takeaways. The site was quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed seeing the horses in the field next to our car parking area. Washing machine and drying facilities were available although were not required by us.

The owner, Irene, was very helpful and we all really enjoyed our stay at Swans Rest. The other Lodges on the site looked as good as Woodpecker Lodge and I would definetly stay again. Strongly recommended.

“Great location, great accommodation, great holiday!”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at Woodpecker lodge for a week in august. The accommodation is cosy, comfortable and well equipped. We were welcomed and shown round the lodge by Vanessa who told us all we needed to know. The accommodation was clean and tidy. Our eight year old granddaughter had a great time feeding the ducks and made very special friends with the horses.
The lodge is in a quiet location, a few minutes drive from a local supermarket, and about 10 minutes drive into Poulton Le Fylde town centre. We visited Blackpool which is about 15 mins drive away - therefore you are in a quiet location in a rural environment but within easy reach of local amenities.
All in all a great location, with great accommodation and a great holiday!

“fantastic holiday”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were looking for a quiet location from which we could travel around the area, we stayed in woodpecker lodge, this was ideal, clean, tidy and well located for our purpose. On arrival we were met by Irene who was very friendly and helpful, the lodge was very nice,clean,spacious, set in lovely surroundings and had everything in it you needed for a pleasant stay. We had a fantastic week and would recommend swan rest holiday cottages.

“Loved this place”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Woodpecker Lodge was a wonderful find. Close to the bustle of Blackpool but with a remote and rural feel. The lodge was clean and very well equipped and the setting was magnificent, adjacent to the lake and teeming with birds and wildlife.
The owner, Irene, was friendly, genuine and helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it without hesitation.

“Pleasant family holiday away from the bustle of Blackpool centre”

person found this review helpful

Our family group consisted of myself and my wife (grandparents), 2 of our adult children and their partners, plus a total of 4 grandchildren aged between 6 yrs and 8 months. We occupied one cottage and one Lodge.

Location was great, with a very easy short drive into Blackpool, the accommodation was well equipped and the grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed feeding the ducks when we were back at 'camp' in between exploring the many attractions in Blackpool.

I'm puzzled why this accommodation has received so few reviews on TripAdvisor,.... perhaps generally a slightly older customer group, who may not be familiar with internet review facilities??
