It’s a brilliant location for kids - the games room and swimming pool offer hours of entertainment for kids. I spent the whole weekend with the kids there and didn’t feel like we had to leave. Really, really enjoyed my stay."

"We had a wonderful holiday in Oaktree Cottage and will definitely back! We took full advantage of the pool which we had to ourselves the majority of the time - the kids had a great time and their swimming improved amazingly! The cottage is "in the middle of nowhere" but a short drive away there is a huge amount to do... Thank you for a lovely holiday!"
