“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights in May whilst visiting the Eden project and could not fault it. The accommodation is excellent, clean, well decorated and very comfy bed, probably the largest bedroom and bathroom I have stayed in in the UK! and so well equipped. The location is excellent, really quiet and relaxing. We received a really warm welcome from Jo and the breakfast was again one of the best we have had anywhere. We would definitely recommend this to any of our friends and family and would love to return sometime. For the standard of the accommodation is it excellent value for money.

Very warm
Welcome and very friendly. Jo gave us excellent information about the surrounding area, places to eat and directions that we would need. She also provided this info on paper for those with short memories!! The cleanliness was faultless and the service was fantastic. The decor was chosen carefully and made u feel at home. We even had our own breakfast dining room!!! Breakfast was great with a huge array such as cooked food, ripe fresh fruit and lots of other bits. Would recommend this B and B to anyone going to at Austell or the Eden project. The bed in the super king room was so comfy and the bathroom and clothes room were huge! Thank u so much. Will defo come back. Best place ever!!! Sally and chloe

This was a return visit to Woodpeckers, and again Jo made the weekend so relaxing and special. Jo likes to get to know her guests and this makes you feel like part of her family. Our room was immaculate and all of the extra items which are provided such as shampoos, shower gels, bath lotions, moisturising creams for both men and women and much more is a very nice touch. Jo also provides a vast array of drinks in your room, with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juice, fresh milk is also provided in the fridge in the conservatory where there are more refreshments for guests to use. Jo's breakfast really sets you up for the day, there is fresh fruit, cereals, bread you can toast yourself, nuts, yoghurt, cheese and much more. Then there is the full English cooked breakfast with really tasty local produce. Jo and Rob will always help you with anything. Waiting for our next return

Everything about the entire stay was accommodating to the max. You see a lot of places get by offering the 'basics' (regardless of how nice the basics are) but Jo and Rob seem to make it their mission to ensure you can have more than you can ever possibly need - which really is a great thing. The room we stayed in was as nice as I think I've come across and the impeccably kept grounds and living areas make every area of the B&B relaxing and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and there's plenty more snacking to be had at pretty much every turn. Highly, highly recommended.

Staying at woodpeckers have changed my way of traveling, it's very difficult to put it down in words but it's an incredible place to stay! Every time you open a draw, you will find something new - hair masks, facial products, sweets, crisps, tourches, you name it! Absolutely fantastic service as well, I couldn't be happier with the choise of B&B, it's even more like an hotel!
Thumbs up til 100%, thank you Jo for the energy and effort you are putting down to make that place so faboulius and homely.

A last minute decision to visit The Eden Project required overnight accommodation and having read the reviews on tripadvisor Woodpeckers looked ideal. Luckily there had been a cancellation and Jo the owner was able to fit us in. Everything was perfect from start to finish and the previous reviews say it all. The breakfast and accommodation were superb and no attention to detail was overlooked. We will definitely be re-visiting.

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Woodpeckers and we have to agree with all the previous reviews, it really is the best B&B we have ever stayed at.
Jo is a wonderful host and provides a beautiful, high quality retreat set in peaceful surroundings. We stayed in the "chalet" and it had everything we could possibly want and more. Milk and juice in the fridge, plenty of tea, coffee etc along with biscuits and treats should we want them.
The bathroom had a bath and shower and don't worry if you have forgotten anything as Jo has provided a wide variety of shampoos, conditioner, lotions etc for ladies and gents should you have forgotten to pack anything.
The breakfasts are scrumptious! Plenty of choice in the conservatory of cereals, bread and fresh fruit and should you opt for something cooked then you won't be disappointed. You must try the eggs, provided by the chickens of a neigbour, they are lovely.
Jo really is a welcoming hostess, she even booked a table for us for at a restaurant for our anniversary after we asked her about a good place to eat.
I can't recommend Woodpeckers highly enough. Thank you Jo for a wonderful stay.
