A great welcome awaited us for our long weekend in Woodpecker Way. The property was perfect for our needs and was an ideal location for exploring the Shropshire countryside. Ludlow Food Centre was well worth a visit. Don't go out without a map as the lanes are not all signposted and visitors need to be happy driving down country lanes.

Woodpecker Way is in a fantastic location if you want peace and quiet. Beautiful views out of the kitchen and living room; with the countryside literally on the doorstep. Woodpecker Way has everything one would need; extremely comfortable and was live a 'home away from home'. One of the best bits is the welcoming homemade cake which was lovely and tasted great.
Woodpecker Way provides a great location for exploring the Shropshire countryside; which has some great walks and wonderful views.
Definitely a place to re-visit time & time again.
