    5/5 Excellent

      Excellent, beyond our wildest expectations!

      The property is in excellent condition, in a very scenic and quiet area. The property is supported with additional extras, including a shared fitness room, tennis court and a selection of wellington boots should you need them. The greeting we received from Angie was most warm.

      5/5 Excellent

        Birthday break

        Me and my wife had a lovely break at the Woodpeckers cottage. The stay was to celebrate my birthday and to visit friends that live in London. We thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, especially the log burner. Would certainly recommend anyone to stay here too.

        5/5 Excellent

          Another wonderful stay

          You will not be disappointed. The house is beautiful, gardens are great. Area is to die for and the views and walks are invigorating.

          5/5 Excellent

            Immaculate cottage in perfect location

            I had a wonderful short break in the lovely Woodpeckers Cottage. The cottage itself has a high spec, stylish interior and decoration, which gives it a luxurious feel and makes for a very spacious, comfortable stay. A great deal of thought and care has gone into the layout and design, and I really appreciated this in regard to the outdoor spaces, as it meant that you could enjoy the front and back patio in total privacy, despite the neighbouring cottage and coach house being very close. It was really lovely to sit and enjoy the sunshine surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers, in the midst of the beautiful countryside, sheltered by beautiful hedging and natural willow/hazel fencing. The cottage is in the perfect location as Ashdown Forest and numerous places of interest are within close driving distance. Angie, the owner was very welcoming and on hand for help and advice, living in the coach house opposite. Amazingly, she has wellies in every possible size for guests to borrow, should they come unprepared for the English countryside and British weather - amazing hospitality! Thank you for a really lovely stay.

            5/5 Excellent

              Peace and quiet

              Quite minor details, a full length mirror and some salad servers. Only downside for me, I could not dry my hair in the bathroom. Otherwise all great. Thank you Angie
