Why you love Woodpecker
Absolutely amazing place, super relaxing, everything expected and more! Can't say a bad thing about this place!
Paul, Rachel & Hannah
Easy access to beaches, beautiful walks, castles & cathedrals. Enjoyed BBQ & drinks in beautiful sunshine on patio. Thanks for fixing lights in kitchen so quickly. So peaceful & tranquil, going back to normal life will be hard. Billy the Sheltie - totally exhausted from so many walks.
Seymours, Whites and Connollys
Just the 3 of us so we rattled around in this amazing home, but with a little toddler, the extra space was appreciated. We found the house really child friendly (especially the secure outdoor space. Lovely welcoming house, we had a great time!
Mummy, Daddy and Toby (16 months) Derbyshire

K & I Behrens
Lovely house, great location. Much needed rest and peace, perfect peace. Lovely crisp white bedding and fluffy towels, very welcoming after a long walk on the gorgeous beaches around the area. Very very clean house, perfect!
May & Sharon Davies
Fab house, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms! Broadhaven South combined with Stackpole Lakes great pm walk on grey blustery 1st day. Riding lessons at Hundleton Stables v. good. Broad Haven north was a great base for a morning of surfing, all equipment hired at local store next to car park. Water Garden Seaview delivered a lovely Chinese. House lived up to the name of Quality Cottages. Very impressed.
Robinson
What a wonderful place to celebrate with our family & next doors household for a New Year's celebration for 12 people and our dogs! We have had an amazing time. Cottages are wonderful! Thank you very much!
Edgecombes & Warrens
Our second stay in this lovely home with it's superb setting. Cant wait to return. Recommend visiting Bosherston Lily ponds - take some wild bird seed, and you can tempt the birds to feed from your hand. Have photos of robins, blue tits and great tits tucking in. Magic!
Irene and Peter Wellington
Woodpecker house is beautifully decorated & the attention to detail is stunning, very comfortable and an enjoyable week was had by us all. Thanks.
Margaret, Jack, Anna, Luke & baby Zack
As avid birdwatchers, this was like having our own luxury hide! House excellent - ice outside but warm and cosey inside. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.
The Wellington family
Had a really lovely stay in a high standard property which has everything you could possibly need. Visited some beautiful beaches and flew our kite. Bought a lovely dress in Narberth and had a really nice meal at the Ferry House. Would like to come in the summer as when the sun came out it made a huge difference. Enjoyed seeing the seals around Skomer Island and all the beautiful scenery that Pembrokeshire has to offer.
Jackie, Ian, Marnie, Heather & Robert
We've had a fantastic week - the location is lovely and the house superb. The weather has been kind, and we have visited beautiful beaches and enjoyed the countryside. Very relaxing.
Neal & Sue Goodison
What a lovely house, beautifully decorated, we loved the furniture so much we bought a few pieces from Furniture Directory ourselves as it was only down the road. Will return to Pembrokeshire again as the beaches are just stunning, and we would like to do some more coastal walking. Thank you for a lovely stay.
The Georges
Very comfortable accommodation, everything provided, very good quality, highly recommended.
Gray family
The best holiday home we've stayed in (and we've had a few!) Fantastic week! We'll be back again.

We have loved our stay in Woodpecker - all very welcoming & after sailing in Dale every day it was great coming back here to relax & watch the tide coming in!
