Has a good size indoor swimming pool with steam room and slide. Has access straight into the woods. Kids entertainment was ok and our 8 and 2 year olds enjoyed joining in. Nice play area...

We paid a lot of money to stay in a lodge with a hot tub for 3 nights over the Easter weekend. We arrived to a 'cold tub' and were disappointed to be told that it wouldn't be a 'hot tub' until the next morning!! All the other lodges were in theirs and told us theirs were fine. It ruined...

We go to Oakdene about 3 times a year as it's such great value for money. What sells it to us is they swimming pool and the flume. There is just the one but my children love it. The entertainment is great for the kids too, not so good for the adults. Highly recommend to everyone.
