Just had a week's holiday in Woodpecker Barn & what a lovely cottage it is.
It's very clean & comfy & has everything you need. It's just perfect if you have dogs, with your own enclosed garden and the safe communal garden as well, they loved it and didn't want to leave!
Lots of places to eat nearby, we particularly liked The Nag's Head which is just down the hill & The Daffodil Inn which is a bit further away (about 10 miles), both are very dog friendly.
Chris & Clare are doing a fabulous job & we wouldn't hesitate to go back again.
The Barn is in a superb location to aid the relaxation of West Wales. All the rooms were well equipped and decorated, we wanted for nothing. The enclosed garden and communal garden were a real bonus for our dog to enjoy.
Fabulous to be so encouraged to recycle and consider the environment.
Wonderful time, will return soon I hope.
We stayed for a few days over New Year in one of Chris and Clare's barn conversions with our 8 month old daughter. They were very accommodating and provided a cot and high-chair. Our barn had modern decor and was well-equipped and easy to keep warm with electric heating. There are some nice walks from the barn and the beautiful pembrokeshire coastline within 30 mins drive.
Located near Boncarth, Pembrokshire. Woodpecker Barn is part of a small group of four cottages called Valley View Cottages. Clare and Chris are wonderful hosts and made sure we were settled in with everything we needed. There was milk, tea, coffee, sugar and biccies in the cottage so we were able to have a cuppa the minute we arrived. The dogs were made welcome and the garden is secure as long as you haven't got a dog that likes to jump fences (our lurchers are too lazy to bother).
There is everything you could possibly need in the cottage including a washing machine and dishwasher (I don't even have one of these at home) and the cottage is immaculate and cosy.
The surrounding area is great for dog walks and there were maps and info sheets giving details of dog friendly places to walk and visit. The Wildlife Centre at Cardigan is a great place to walk and our favourite beach is Poppit Sands. There is a local pub and a small grocery shop a short drive away and there is a Tesco Superstore in Cardigan with a petrol station if need be.
This is such a beautiful place to stay and we have just booked again for 2018.
