Simply wonderful. We have just returned from our 3 night stay at Oakthwaite House (10th -13th April) We have been staying at this first class B&B for many years now and we were a little apprehensive this time, as Oakthwaite has new owners. We need not have worried; Peter and Sandra we magnificent hosts with the same attention to detail,... More

Quiet location, well placed for vthe town centre. Deep sleep in cosy room 5. Top class breakfast , especially the granola! Hope to re-visit in not too distant future.
