Woodpecker Cottage is in the small conservation village of Bladnoch, Dumfries and Galloway, one mile from Wigtown, Scotland's national booktown. It is set amidst magnificent scenery in the heart of one of the most beautiful and quiet corners of Scotland.

A sympathetically restored early 19th century cottage which is within two minutes walk of a pleasant child-friendly pub and restaurant and Scotland's most southerly distillery (with regular tours and whisky tasting). There's an attractive golf course a couple of minutes drive away with plenty of others in the area.

This part of Galloway has a network of villages surrounded by farms and woodland. It's rich in wildlife and includes nesting ospreys and peregrines. There are plenty of quiet sandy beaches (ten minutes drive), unspoilt harbours, excellent sea fishing and safe havens for boating.

The Galloway Forest Park, with internationally acclaimed mountain bike runs, is nearby. There's a cinema in market town of Newton Stewart and beyond that the wilderness of the Galloway hills, ideal for serious walkers. Ramblers looking for gentler exercise are also well provided for.
