“Wow what a gem”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Beautiful high quality cottage perfect for relaxing chilling and getting away from it all. Sally n Rob very friendly and helpful . Hot tub was perfect easing the tension and stress away . The cottage itself was home from home with little personal touches like the freshly laid eggs on arrival and for those chilly nights a roaring log fire was awesome . Kitchen was well equipped as was the whole of the cottage towels provided for hot tub as well. So pack your provisions and nice bottle of wine as this is the perfect hideaway. We will be back to explore the local area and the view from the back French doors is amazing bring your binoculars the wildlife on the lake is not to be missed . Thanks this place was better than going to a spa .

“A peaceful tranquil cottage set in beautiful countryside”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Woodpecker Cottage is an outstanding holiday destination in the heart of the Forest of Bowland. We experienced warm hospitality and plenty of privacy. We were able to totally relax in luxurious well equipped accommodation.
The quality of the furnishings, kitchen & dining equipment was of the highest standard. The Jacuzzi was a real treat. Thank you Sally & Rob your cottage is the best we have stayed in anywhere in the world. We give you a 6 star rating!
