The room was adequate but short of drawer space for more than the overnight stay. Great views over the valley to Bowness , nice fresh bed linen, lots... More

We stayed 2 nights for the blues festival. The guest house is lovely, Max and Marnie very welcoming and friendly. Facilities very good, room a touch on the snug side but great shower, nice toiletries, loads of towels. Some real nice touches such as tea pot in the room, glasses and corkscrew. Breakfast lovely and a wide choice. Close enough... More

I stayed two nights at Oakfold and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Max and Marnie have only been running it for a few weeks but you would think they had been there for years. I received a very warm welcome and both were really friendly and helpful. Room 5 under the eaves was cosy and comfortable as well as being beautifully... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in April 2014 and absolutely loved it. Maxwell and Marnie were incredible hosts, super friendly and helpful. Staff member Carol was also extra friendly and knowledgeable about the house's history. They really made us feel welcome. The room was lovely, nicely decorated and clean; we slept wonderfully on the comfortable bed.... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Oakfold. We arrived at 20.00 after travelling straight from a day at work and were given a brilliant welcome by one of the owners who is polite and friendly. The room we stayed in was undoubtedly small but more than adequate for our needs. It was really cute and cosy, well decorated,... More

Stayed two nights at Oakfold House. On the positive side, the bed was very comfortable and the location was good. On the negative side the room was small, the bathroom was grubby, with mildew around the shower, no grout on the tiles and cheap scratchy toilet paper. The breakfast was poor. Had the full English on the first morning, poor... More
