It's a lovely place in a lovely location but the owner is terrifyingly intrusive. Don't book here unless you're OK with 5am 'inspections' and industrial grade CCTV monitoring your every move.
Particularly exciting were the escaped bulls that ended up in the driveway in the evening.
Other than that, yeah, great.
We went to Oakleigh Farm Barn for a weekend away with the girls and it was brilliant. Perfect place to stay with everything that we needed. Thanks for the owners for all of their help - it was nice to know that they were next door if we needed anything and they were not intrusive at all.
The Sun Inn down the road was lovely for lunch and eased off the hangovers from the Friday night.
We came here for a surprise 30th weekend, with 8 adults, a toddler, a baby and a dog. It was perfect for our party. The kitchen is really well equipped and a massive table to seat everyone round. The rooms were all comfortable and two had ensuites as well as a family bathroom. The hot tub is excellent and seats 8 but that gets quite cosy. The outdoor space was perfect for little people to run around in and play some garden games. The local pub was excellent and the hosts were very accommodating. We would highly recommend it!
We had a wonderful weekend away! Five adults and three children under six. I can't tell you how much the children enjoyed the hot tub. It is so big the five year olds could swim in it. This is an excellent barn conversion. A large, well equipped kitchen where we could cook for eight without any problem and we could all sit around the table to eat. The rest of the conversion is also very spacious. We had plenty of room to spread out or sit together in the evenings. Bedrooms were just as we needed. There is plenty to do in the area. And the pub is really only five minutes walk away - and the food is plentiful and very good.
A special mention must go to the owners Wendy and Keith. They live on site in an adjacent house. Always there when needed. Very friendly and informative but never intrusive.
We would highly recommend this spotless, beautifully equipped property.
A really, really lovely property with everything in place (even some dishwasher tablets were provided). The property is very clean and we were met on arrival by one of the owners, Wendy who introduced us to the property and showed us how various items worked. Both Wendy and her husband Keith have their own house on the site and are easily available to answer questions etc.
the property has a lovely garden and plenty of room for a dog to run and exercise (we took a Samoyed) with used he was really happy with the space!
The property has a very large modern kitchen with a large dining area. Two of the five bedrooms have lovely ensuites complete with wet rooms. But what delighted us the most about the property was the lovely hot tub!
The property is well placed for country walks and there is a local public house within a five minute walk of the property, which also serves excellent meals. For any shopping requirements there is a Tesco 3 miles from the property in Ellsemere.
We had a lovely weekend at the property and highly recommend it.
Our recent stay at the Oakleigh Farm Barn retreat was very relaxing and enjoyable.
The barn conversion was very comfortable warm and spacious for the party of 8.
The internal facilities were perfect for our family gathering along with our two labrador dogs. Unfortunately the weather was bitterly cold to fully enjoy the outside
hot tub and pool table in the out building. The short drive or stroll to the Sun Inn was perfect for a great pub meal each night and did not break the budget.
A perfect present for my wife's 90 year old mother to enjoy the time with us all.
The two dogs enjoyed their pleasant winter walks over the fields towards Elesmere.
Many thanks to the owners for their help and hospitality.
Definitely would recommend this as a weekend retreat.
I hope others enjoy the stay as much as the Yates Crew from Milton Keynes.
This is a superb renovation with intricate attention to detail. The barn is spacious and homely with top quality amenities. The kitchen is well equipped and possibly the best kitchen I have ever been in. You lack nothing. The hot tub is an added bonus and so luxurious. This fantastic accommodation is surrounded by superb walks and is very dog friendly. The owners are attentive, warm and friendly without being intrusive. They are readily available if needed and are swift to respond to queries. Definitely deserves a 5 star rating.
