Everything you could ever want in a Restful nights stay away. Great location out of town enough to be really quiet, comfy bed and very clean accommodation throughout. The view from the breakfast room tops off the wonderful cooked breakfast and home made marmalade on toast. It is enough to make you change your holiday plans and stay longer!

Our room was spacious, cosy and spotless and our hosts were attentive and gracious, making sure every aspect of making our stay perfect, was met.

We had a four night stay at Oak Cottage which is situated in a very quiet village. Kim and Mike are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. You receive a warm welcome on arrival and it continues from there. The room is lovely - en suite is excellent and everything is spotlessly clean; it is... More

Wonderful welcome. Superb bedroom with lots of space to relax. Breakfast was served in conservatory with views over the gardens. Hosts eagerly offered advice on places to eat and attractions in the area, giving directions as to how to find them. Would have no hesitation in recommending Oak Cottage.

We were very well looked after by Kim and Mike during our 2 night stay. Our breakfasts were lovely, and the view of a lovely private green valley, full of song birds, started our days in very fine style. The closest city is Durham, which we think is lovely. Our only criticisms were probably irrelevant to the vast majority of... More

There is only 1 room at Oaklands which is spacious and spotlessly clean, with tea and coffee making facilities.A very quiet spot with welcoming hosts and an excellent breakfast overlooking a beautiful garden and open countryside. It was a bit of a drive to find an evening meal, especially in the dark along narrow country lanes, but we were given... More
