Kevin and Tricia were incredibly welcoming and friendly and made sure that we had the best experience of the local area that we possibly could by making lots of brilliant suggestions of places to visit and where to find the best seafood. We couldn't have asked for better hosts, thank you!

We had a lovely holiday at Woodpecker cottage. When we arrived the cottage was very clean which is a comfort in these difficult times. It had everything we needed and more!

Loved the accommodation and the location. It had a lovely welcome pack and all the helpful things like washing up stuff and coffee etc very helpful when arriving late. Kev and Trish very helpful and excellent care of cleanliness during this pandemic. Would definitely come again. The pool was a fantastic bonus to get up and swim every morning.
