Woodpecker Shepherd's Hut is truly magical at any time of year.
What a setting!
With absolutely stunning views over a meadow to the Camel Estuary.
The views can very much be enjoyed from inside or out, whether that's dining al fresco or in the hot tub.
Your very own little sanctuary.
Just look at that view - wow!
All you could need for a comfortable stay has been provided.
Enjoy a yummy breakfast to set you up for the day, whatever you may have planned.
So pretty inside.
Breakfast with a view!
You will never tire of this view.
Lie back and watch the stars above by night.
A warming wood-burner ensures year-round cosiness.
The small but perfectly formed kitchen includes an electric cooker, fridge and sweet Belfast sink.
What a lovely place to spend a few days or more.
Just beautiful.
The bed cleverly converts with ease from the dining area.
An idyllic place to rest your head, with the view in front by day and the stars above by night.
Breakfast in bed is a must!
There is, of course, a stylish en suite shower-room.
Complete with flushing WC, heated towel rail and small sink.
And a hot shower.
Every little detail has been thoughtfully provided.
Even down to the crockery!
And lovely linens and cushions.
A hot tub with a view - what could be better?
Nestled away in a secluded spot.
Dining al fresco is a must.
Cook up a scrummy supper on the fire-pit barbecue.
Who's cooking?
Grab a glass of your favourite tipple and hop in.
You'll want to return time and time again.
Woodpecker in all it's glory.
A supply of logs for the wood-burner is on-hand.
A truly special hideaway.
The Dinham Estate, where Woodpecker is situated, is to the right of this shot.
The Camel Estuary and surrounding area is just stunning.
The waterfront at nearby Rock.
Hop on the foot ferry from Rock over to Padstow, with its wealth of fabulous eateries.
Delightful Padstow harbour.
There are some wonderful beaches nearby - this is Daymer Bay.
Polzeath is a great beach too.
Port Isaac, of Doc Martin, Fisherman's Friends and Nathan Outlaw fame, is well worth a visit.

The most perfect little place! The finishing touches such as the Royal Doulton cups, the quality of the dressing gowns provided, the friendliness of the hosts and the ease of everything was simply perfection. We felt so relaxed and at ease here, we cannot wait to return!

It is a stunning, Idyllic and amazing get away enjoyed every minute.

Beautiful place to stay, we will definitely use it again Everything was 5 star from the hosts to the dressing gowns There was even a lovely bottle of wine waiting chilled in the fridge and a lovely warm hot tub on arrival We could not fault anything Wonderful break x

What a hidden gem! A fantastic hideaway offering everything for a totally relaxing break. We loved it here. Sitting in an evening lookIng out over the estuary, having a little drink of something with the firepit going was so relaxing. We were fortunate enough to see some fantastic moons the week we were here. Then to add in the hot tub, just added to the relaxation. Would definitely visit here again

Absolutely amazing. A real 'Get away from it all' break with the security of knowing help would be on hand if it is needed.

Thank you for a fantastic stay! Loved everything. The shepherd's hut exceeded all our expectations. So comfortable. The hot tub was great! The view magnificent! The hospitality unmatched! Thank you so much, we will definitely return! A&Z
