An absolute delight to be able to stay in oakfield. Such a warm lovely home. Everything you could possibly want and need. Only a ten min walk into town, a great selection of shops. A great bus service that can take you round the full island. Hope to return at some point in the future , thanks again for making my holiday so comfortable .

“outstanding yet again xx”
Reviewed April 16, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just back from out third visit to mull and Oakfield Cottage and it gets better every time. The cottage is in the perfect place to explore Tobemory and the rest of Mull with the most amazing views.

The cottage is really well equipped, comfortable and very safe if you have small children as stairgates can be fitted as well as cots and highchairs provided by Jean which makes the whole trip stress free. The children loved the wonderful garden and spent many happy hours playing there. We were lucky enough to get nightly visits from a hedgehog near the bird tables whilst we were sat in the lounge looking out to the garden.

The cottage is a short walk from all the amenities, there are plenty of good restaurants serving good quality food and everyone is very welcoming. Buses run close by too.

By far the 'grandest' house in Mull!!!!

I am going to miss our night time exploring walks so much but we will be back soon.

Best wishes to Jean and Alasdair xx

“Wonderful stay on the Isle of Mull”
Reviewed April 11, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

A wonderful Easter break on the Isle of Mull. The cottage exceeded our expectations - spacious, clean and very comfortable. The children (aged 4 and 1) really enjoyed their week especially being able to make use of the lovely garden and climbing frame and also the box of toys and buckets and spades provided. There is much to do on the island for a young family including visits to the amazing beaches and a trip over to Iona. Jean and Alasdair made us very welcome and even left Easter eggs for our Easter egg hunt - thank you!

“Beautiful and spacious cottage”
Reviewed November 21, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed for 3 nights in November. Cottage was clean, warm,comfortable,spacious and well equipped. There were loads of games and books and DVDs provided. We felt very much at home.There was a huge garden with a swing set that my daughter enjoyed and the views from the garden were fabulous. I heard there are hedgehogs there but didn't manage to spot one. The cottage is in a quiet lane just past the Western Isles hotel which is near enough to shops that you could easily walk but also peaceful and secluded.You might think coming to Mull in November was a rather foolish thing to do and there were some concerns over the ferry but I'm glad we did. The autumn colours were vivid and the views breathtaking. We saw loads of wildlife during our time there including deer on 3 separate occasions. Also it was good to travel along the scenic routes as there wasn't a lot of traffic about which made things easier on some of the single track roads.There are some lovely shops in Tobermory. We made our own food mostly but did go to the Fish & Chip van at the seafront which comes highly recommended. The people who own the cottage were very helpful as was the lady who looks after it for them. I would definitely stay here again.

“Superb accommodation with stunning views and a warm welcome”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The owners, Jean and Alasdair, have given great attention to detail in the accommodation. It is extremely comfortable and immaculate throughout. A well equipped kitchen rounds off everything you may need for a enjoyable stay. The outlook from the property is fantastic and the town and harbor are just a short walk away. Our first trip to the Isle of Mull could not have been better - we look forward to our next one.
Thank you very much Jean and Alasdair.

“Brilliant family accommodation in excellent location with fantastic hosts!”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The whole experience of Oakfield cottage has been pleasurable. From the initial enquiry about the property to the day we left the service from the owners has been exceptional, they genuinely make you feel welcome and at home.
The property was only a short walk in to the main centre but is located so it looks it has a stunning view. The cottage is extremely well equipped from the kitchen utensils to the extensive range of books and DVDs.
The property is great for children, ours aged 7 and 9 enjoyed playing in the garden and watching the birds feed outside the window.
This was our first visit to Mull and we have already planned a return visit next year back to Oakfield Cottage.

Magnificent cottage with every facility you could ask for on a self catering holiday. The cottage was warm and inviting with all the home comforts and very tastefully decorated. All rooms are spacious with great views of the garden where the birds kept us entertained for hours. We have booked again , this time for the spring and we can't wait to see the island in hopefully the better weather. Lots to do for all the family and well worth the visit , see you soon Jean and Alasdair 10/10
