    The cottage could do with a bit of a makeover i.e. a repaint in some areas but overall we were happy with the cottage - we would note that the directions where not favourable to someone coming from the north who use a sat nav as that route misses out the last few miles within a mile or so from the final destination . We would recommend the "Three Jolly Sailors" for meals exceptional food and quite reasonable.

    The cottage is located with wonderful views. It is though very put dated and needs an uplift. The bed linen is ancient, mattreses need replacing,cooker needs replacing,no washing machine. The lady who owns it is lovely but the pictures are deceiving although the garden is large you don't feel that you can use it all. When you spend money on a holiday you hope to find somewhere like home but unfortunately we found it drab and outdated.

    To reach the cottage you go to the barns as instructed and next to them there are semi detached cottages, one of which is Lindhead Close and the other is Woodpeckers, The instructions are missleading as they state that Lindhead Close is at the top of the steep bends a mile from Woodpeckers). The cottage is advertised as having 2 TV's, one with Sky in the lounge room and one in the double bedroom without Sky but there is only a TV in the lounge with FREESAT. The cottage is very well appointed with all that you need to cook a meal, it has a variety of games, toys etc for children. The furniture is in good condition and comfortable and the beds are reasonably comfortable but the double bed could do with a new mattress, There is a good supply of information leaflets and is ideal for a variety holiday needs.

    I really cannot provide an in-depth review of Woodpecker Cottage as my Husband and i spent a total of an hour in the place before packing up our car and driving back home to Derbyshire. It had all the cosy charm of a day centre for the homeless, it was warn - out, grubby, dingy and depressing. I am a great lover of "vintage" but most of the furnishings would have been well past their sell -by date long before reaching the time period allowed to fall into that particular category. There was mould and mildew around the bath, "crud" around the top of the cooker and the toaster looked as though you could grow potatoes in it. The whole kitchen looked and felt "grubby" Also the property had been described by Welcome as being detached, this was not the case, the owners home is only separated from the holiday let by a locked wooden, internal door through which we could hear her TV! NOT what i would call private! I did not bother reporting this at the time as i have little belief that anything would have changed as i have dealt with large holiday companies before and i suspect i would simply get the "we are just the agents" routine. What i have done however is lost all faith in Welcome to handle my future holiday needs which is sad as we have used this company on 4 previous occasions and had planned to continue doing so. However no company that keeps selling "woodpecker cottage" is frankly to be trusted in my opinion. I have also passed this information to all my friends and family via Social Media. I trust this satisfies your request for a "review" of our time at "woodpecker" and indeed our opinions of Welcome Holidays Regards Mr Stephen Young
