We had to make late plans to stay in Cookstown and tried the Oaklands Lodge B&B. John couldn't have been more helpful eventhough he had friends over and had to quickly make arrangements.
When we arrived he met us and showed us the self catering studio accommodation adjacent to the main house. It was very clean & tidy and allowed us a bit of privacy in our own space. We were able to come and go without feeling we were imposing on John, Caroline and their friends and family.
The next morning we called down to the family home where we were treated to a fully cooked breakfast with breads and jams made by John himself.
The location of the place would be ideal for walks and a bit of down time away from huddle and bustle. The town is approx 5 mile away so a taxi can get you into a restaurant in Cookstown. I would definitely recommend the Oaklands Lodge B&B and only wish we could have stayed longer
