  • "We had a lovely stay at Crooked Oak Cottage, it was spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed."

    I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family. At first we thought the internet provision could have been better/faster but this turned out to be a positive rather than negative. Our teenager actively engaged in conversation instead of spending the majority of his time online gaming. A perfect mid week break! Thank you!
