All five bedrooms boast their own bespoke shower/bathroom along with exquisite soft furnishing and décor.
Ideally situated at the southern tip of the Peak District near the picturesque market town of Ashbourne with its quaint cobbled market place and hidden alleys to explore. Carsington Water is a mere 3-minute walk away offering superb water sports, sailing and bike hire facilities with an area devoted to wildlife, along with cycle and walking trails. Other places to visit nearby include Bakewell, Matlock Bath, Haddon Hall, Chatsworth House and Keddleston Hall, as well as other National Trust and English Heritage properties. It is only a short drive to Dovedale and the other lovely dales of the limestone White Peak District, which offers great walking. A little further afield, visit Alton Towers theme park for a great day out for both adults and children alike. Woodpecker Loft is ideal for work retreats, family gatherings and weekends away catching up with friends so why not enjoy the beautiful views from this stunning cottage in its large private gated courtyard or from the balcony above? Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    We had a fabulous week with family at Woodpecker Lodge. Excellent location for exploring this beautiful part of the country Neil was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The only problem we had during our stay was that the sofas were rather low, which was a problem for some of the group as they were elderly and found it difficult to sit down/get up.

    We had an absolutely fabulous break for our annual family Christmas get together at Woodpecker. This is by far the best equipped and most luxuriously appointed (kitchen) we’ve stayed in, with absolutely loads of Denby crockery (probably enough for 20 people!), all types of glass and stemware, knives, cooking utensils etc - just brilliant! The hob was a little tricky to master as it is induction but works with a magnet that doesn’t seem to activate all rings but this was not a problem we just worked around it! As other reviews have said the two bedrooms upstairs are quite tight for headroom but beautifully decorated and nice and cosy, there was one bedroom downstairs (next to kitchen) that was snug but again it’s no problem - it’s only to sleep in and with some fairy lights looked very cosy! The main room was fab for our evenings eating drinking and playing games and outside the views and setting were exquisite, with rolling countryside to one side and the road to Carsington water (beautiful walks) the other. There are plenty of places in the vicinity to visit and it was a great location. Neil the manager was fantastically helpful and patient before we visited and allowed us a slightly earlier entry than usual for my older parents, much appreciated. Overall we all (5 years to 75 years!) agreed it was the best holiday house we’ve visited - thank you very much and we’ll see you in the spring !! Book it, you will LOVE it!!
