We stayed 2 nights at the Oak Cottage, had a nice big room with very modern bathroom and lovely views into the garden in the morning, during breakfast. Very pleasant, helpful hosts. One thing that really affected the stay was the mattress in the bed, it was really hard and we had problems sleeping on it - Would be good... More

Comfy armchairs were in the room, tea/coffee making facilities, TV and a good selection of brochures on local attractions. Delicious cooked breakfast... More

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!

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.
