We had a fantastic time in woodpecker barn - fantastic accommodation, all in sight and perfect for a holiday with a busy 10 month old. It was fantastic having cot, highchair and stair gate all provided and also some toys! We had a lovely time meeting the alpacas and chickens and playing in the park - thanks for a fantastic stay and we hope to come back soon
We had a wonderful stay at Woodpecker Barn. We felt incredibly comfortable and wanted for nothing. The barn is well equipped with everything you should need. With a 7 month old it was great to have access to a washing machine. The open living area made it easy for us to watch our son whilst preparing his food and it was great for us to relax in during the evenings too.
The barn is situated in a very quiet hamlet next to a quiet farm. It was lovely to wake up to the sound of birds and see the cows in the fields.
It's also a great location for south Devon. Beaches on either side of Kingsbridge are easily accessible and there are walking locations nearby and many locations for coffee, cake and lunches.
It's a lovely base for a relaxing break in Devon plus the welcome pack on arrival with fresh eggs and homemade scones was great too! We hope to return!
We found the owners Judy and Mike to be very informative and happy to help prior to going on holiday and while we were there. They also recommend some restaurants which were also very good which we booked before arriving.
If you have a car and want to be somewhere within 30mins of Dartmouth, Salcombe and the lovely beaches at Blackpool Sands, Hope Cove, Bigbury-on-sea / Burgh and many more places in South Devon then this is an ideal spot to be.
If you don't want to drive or want something within walking distance then this is not recommended as you don't have anything in immediate vicinity to get to without a car but if you have transport it is perfect and a peaceful retreat.

The owners were incredibly helpful, both before our trip and while we were there. They answered all questions quickly and even gave us some passata when we had forgotten to buy any for our spaghetti bolognese! The cottage was very cosy and peaceful and we felt very at home. There was a good play area, shared between the cottages, with a slide / swing etc. and alpacas and chickens. Our toddler son loved it.

A great holiday cottage with everything that we needed......and lots of extras that were a bonus ! Plenty of things to keep our young children busy and Judy even came to the rescue with buckets and spades when we had unexpected sunshine.
A truly beautiful area of Devon and a fantastic setting at Woodpecker Barn to enjoy it from.
