Spent one night here while doing the Offa's Dyke walk, welcomed by Lynn with a pot of tea and some delicious cake. The views from this property are outstanding. Our room with ensuite was on the ground floor, it was spotless and really comfortable. The best nights sleep on our whole journey to date. There is also a guest lounge... More

Oakley B&B's location is nothing short of stunning! The views from here are around 160 degrees wide over the valleys and hills of both Wales and England. The welcome from Lynne Higgs was very friendly and warm. Watching grey wagtails and buzzards flying by was just another bonus. We were offered a hot drink and a cake on arrival in... More

Highly recommend, from the friendly welcome with tea and cake from Lynne, to seeing us off this morning (Lynne and two labrador dogs), we had a great time and nothing was too much trouble. My friend is in a wheelchair and we were unable to stay at nearby Mellington Hall where we were attending a wedding so this was recommended... More

As we first arrived we were offered tea and biscuits in the lounge. The hosts were welcoming and helpful and drove us to an adjacent village for our evening meal. Nice, clean and a good breakfast. Lovely view of the landscape from the garden.

We stayed here for the night as we were attending a wedding at Mellington Hall. I called a day in advance for advice on the local roads following the recent bad weather we have had, and Lynn was very helpful. We stayed with our 1 year old, (taking our own travel cot) and the family size room was more than... More

After walking a very strenuous stretch of the Offa's Dyke Path Lynne’s wonderful welcome with tea and Bara Britt (?) was heaven. A nice and clean room with a very good bed made up for the hard day walking. The Higgs were very considerate and good hosts: Ian was so kind to drop us off at Montgomery the next day,... More
