Just stayed at Oakthwaite House for a long weekend in January. Peter and Sandra are the most hospitable of hosts - nothing too much trouble, everything spotlessly clean, and lovely food. The standard of the accommodation is excellent and Oakthwaite is only a few minutes' walk from the town centre, so really convenient. We'd definitely recommend Oakthwaite House.
