A fantastic holiday in the perfect cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a week at Woodpecker cottage and it really is a lovely, warm, comfortable, cosy and clean cottage. The log cabin is situated in a wonderful secluded location, but still close enough to the owners' home for any help and advice, and a very manageable drive from the main cities/towns of the area.
We were looking for a romantic, private and relaxing holiday and Woodpecker cottage was the perfect choice - so much so that my partner proposed on the second day!
Ola the owner and her family are warm and friendly and we look forward to getting to know them more as we will definitely be rebooking for a winter break.

A fantastic log cabin in a lovely location.

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from 5 nights at Woodpecker cottage. If you are looking for a lovely comfortable and clean log cabin in a wonderful secluded location, but not too far from the cities of Gdansk and Sopot and surrounded by the forects and lakes of the Kashubian region, this is for you. We came with four adults and an 11 year old and the cottage suited us perfectly. With one large double room, a twin room and another room with bunk beds, we were very comfortable. The log burner in the living area was a great on an evening. The kitchen had all the necessary gadgets and accessories, and the living area was very comfortable to relax after a hard days sightseeing. Outside was a lovely deck area to sit out on the evening sun, and a nice barbeque for a very pleasant supper. We didn’t use the available bikes or kayak on the nearby lake, but these were at hand if we needed them. Ola the owner couldn’t have done more to make us feel welcome and to offer advice of what to go and see and where to eat good food. In short it’s a great place, in a great location, owned by a lovely person. We have already recommended the cottage to friends and will definitely be back again soon.

Perfect place to explore the Gdansk/Gdynia area

  • 5 out of 5
I and my family - my husband aged 65 and my two children 6 and 7 had a wonderful time in this cottage last summer and can strongly recommend this property to anyone with an interest in exploring the lovely countryside outside Szemud and the coastline of Gdynia/Sopot/Gdansk. We spent two great weeks here in the competent and friendly care of Ola and her husband. The house has everything you need in terms of facilities, and can be used as the base for walks along the nearby lake as well as further trips to the coast (around 45 minutes away) as well interesting cultural and historical sites both in the major cities as well as in smaller places such as Puck.

best holiday ever

  • 5 out of 5
If you have been struggling to find a great Polish holiday cottage stop looking you have found it. The cottage is spacious, clean, well decorated, and the owner Ola is delightful: witty, helpful, knowledgeable, and speaks great English. She was a great confidence boost to have on the end of a phone given the limited scope of my Polish. Lovely lake near the cottage, which has everything you could want. Gorgeous Baltic beaches e.g. Debki are about an hour's drive away, and are well worth it: clean sand, warm sea, beautiful pine forests. We did lots of day trips out and Torun is lovely, Malbork castle really good, and Gdansk obviously full of History and great restaurants. Kashubia, the region, is beautiful: nicest bit of Poland I have seen and have seen lots of it: don't miss the Kashubian history park complete with the upside down house and the longest plank of wood in the world. Also went down to Warsaw which is a full day's drive but worth it if you are touring. Having previously spent family holidays in France, Sweden, and Germany, Poland is by far the best value, best History, best beaches, and nicest people. We are going back to this cottage next year after a unanimous vote of the whole family. You should try it.

Just Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
I went through a lot of houses on the net trying to find the one that could "speak" to me. This one did and once getting to the house I was far from disapointed.
I were 2 adults and 4 children and none of us could have loved it more than we did. The youngst girl actually wanted to stay longer :-)
Lots of room and the nature is just lovely.
Wanting help with finding your way on the map or advices on what to see, the house owners are more than happy to help out.
Trust me this house is just PERFECT :-)

A Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 2 fantastic weeks here in the summer. The wonderful wooden house is situated in the countryside, close to a lake, making it very peaceful and relaxing. There is also plenty to do for the children. We enjoyed swimming in the lake, bike riding and exploring the woodland and local area.

The property was just as we expected from the photos, clean and well-maintained. The neighbours are very friendly and the nearby shop well-stocked. Ola and Darek, the owners, are very friendly and help you settle in. They have fantastic knowledge of the local area and places worth visiting.

We enjoyed our holiday so much we will be returning in 2010! I would definitely recommend it to any family!

Though located in a regular pine forest, calm and relaxing nature corner, Woodpecker Nest provides easy access to the attractions of Gdansk, Sopot (best Polish sea resort) and Gdynia (20-40 min drive). Exploring our wild and protected beaches of open sea is a must. The windy and shallow Bay of Puck provides ideal conditions for windssurfing beginners. You might decide to rent a sailing boat in Puck for a day and experience a real marine adventure sailing to the Port of Gdansk or Hel. As sailing is our hobby, we can provide assistance. Our quiet cottage is lucky to be in the heart of Polish Kashubian Region, surrounded by lakes and forests of so called Polish Switzerland. You are invited to go south to Kartuzy, Chmielno (30 min drive), or Szymbark with its upside down House which will make you really dizzy. The surrounding attractions are far enough to give you a sense of theme trip and close enough to return quickly to your comfortable shelter once you get tired, especially if you travel with small children. You could see them safely enjoy the playground from your kitchen window.

Any barbecue lover will be happy to use the roofed Barbecue Hut with well equipped barbeque and dining furniture, making a family barbecue pleasant also on a rainy day.

If you feel like relaxing we invite our guests to use our Sauna and Hot Tub which is a great experience especially in winter, or to take advantage of the Hawaian Massage - a qualified massage therapist coming to the House, with a special bed, fragrant oils and hypnotizing Hawaian music. Approximate cost is 15-20 Euro (1,5-2 hour session). Really recommended!

Detailed attractions, 'must see' places and restaurants are described in a leaflet, guides and maps (English or German) provided in the House. We always advise and assist our guests in order to make their holiday as enjoyable as possible. Access to wireless internet will allow you to search for more information once you get here.
