  • "Oaks One was a lovely holiday cottage within a beautiful park."

    Very clean and tidy with everything that you could need for a warm, comfortable stay (especially appreciated the welcome bowl of goodies!!). Unfortunately we had an incident that happened with an elderly visitor but the owners were very quickly contacted and are dealing with the aftermath!! Would absolutely recommend this cottage to anyone. Very ideally set within Northumberland to be able to get to all the lovely tourist places. One of the best places we have stayed in.

    I’m so please you enjoyed your time in Oaks one . I do hope your friend has not be traumatised by his visit . Thank you for informing us of the need to do repairs following the incident . Property Owner

  • "Lovely location and a lovely spot on the park, (Perfect bench for morning tea to relax and watch the wildlife)."

    Everything you could wish for is provided. Unfortunately it is let down as being a little tired, kitchen and lounge are nice and look quite recent, the rest of the accommodation needs a good sparkle, just a thorough clean, couple of bathroom blinds together with a lick of paint and it’s done, outside needs an overall clean up, deck stain, glass veranda and that’s sorted, if we thought that these points had been addressed then we would return, trouble is there’s so many and standards have to be an absolute 9 really, I’d give this a 7 as it stood, like I say, not much really to up it!! Thanks, Martyn

    Please you enjoyed your stay. I’m not sure how to answer your feed other than in the spring we paint. The decking is neutral colour I have no intention of staining it . Our windows clean had been on holiday and is doing catch up cleaned last week.the bathroom blinds are to be replaced as we are refitting the bathroom later this year . Property Owner

  • "The directions to the property are a total nonsense."

    You need to rewrite these so that future holiday makers can find the site without travelling to all four points of the compass. The property was very well equipped but lacked a local information folder with recommendations and directions.

    It difficult to communicate with people who do use a mobile phone . We are very happy to help people who get lost . To date we have only had this problem one other time . Percy woods has numerous signs on entering the village to indicate which way to travel, There is a large basket of maps local guides and information on the floor under the TV.

    Beautifully furnished. The owner gives a welcome call and advice for the area which was nice. There was also a lovely welcome pack including essentials you may forget. We have what we call our "lodge box" where we keep essentials like spare toilet roll, kitchen roll, washing up liquid and sponges etc and we didn't need it at all as everything was thought of in the lodge. I didn't want to leave

    It was just as good this time. There has been alot of thought and effort put in by the owner with very comfortable beds, a kitchen-with everything you could possibly need and extra touches with the Welcome pack for the people AND the dog! The furniture, equipment and furnishings are very good quality. Beyond anyone's control was the weather, but it was November and it rained and rained.

  • "As a nurse going on a much needed break/rest with 2 colleagues, this was everything we needed."

    Oaks One was the best of the best. The Lodge was spotless, beautifully "laid out" with high quality fixtures and fittings. The Welcome pack was the best and most thoughtful one I've seen in nearly 40 years of taking self catering holidays with my own family. We'd brought our colleagues dog, even he got a Welcome pack too!! The enclosed verandah meant we and him were relaxing together. The location was idyllic, surrounded by well kept grounds and "nature" at your door. It was relaxing watching the birds, ducks and moorhens on the pond, and visiting toads and frogs in glorious sunshine from the verandah. Extra special was visiting Roe deer on a 05.30hr early rising!! The owner telephoned to check we were happy and to help with anything. He made us feel so welcome. We will be booking again, as soon as time and off-duties allow. Thankyou

  • "Very comfortable and trendy."

    Probably the best equipped property we have had. can`t think of anything lacking. The bed too is the most comfortable we have had. We explored the park and concluded Oaks One has the best site on the park but the park itself was disappointing. If i was paying £4,000 a year ground rent I would want far more facilities. Nelson`s is excellent but a least 2 miles away. But for anyone who is happy to go out and about for their entertainment i would highly recommend this lodge.

    The heating was on and all the beds made up, these beds were amazingly comfortable, it was obvious a great deal of money had been spent on the quality of the mattresses, something overlooked in some holiday properties. The whole cabin oozed luxury, we felt very comfortable aand at home for the 4 days we were there. It was a lovely touch when we got a call from David the owner to ask if everything was ok and to recommend some places to visit and places to eat in the area, which was extremely helpful. Percy Woods is a beautifully kept site with nice walks within, and a lovely golf course nearby, a tennis court, playpark. The magic for us was that Swarland is one of the Dark Sky areas of the Northumberland National Park, and on the morning of our departure at 5am whilst out with the dog, we were rewarded with an amazing sky. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone, it is a credit to the owner. We hope to make another visit sometime soon.

The property

Felton 3.2 miles.

Resting on the grounds of the tranquil Percy Wood Golf & Country Park with unlimited complimentary golf at the 18 hole golf course, on the outskirts of the quaint village of Swarland, is this striking wooden lodge, Oaks One.

Offering a peaceful setting and a homely interior, Oaks One is an idyllic base for your next rural retreat.

Two sought-after off-road parking spaces greet you upon arrival to this lovely dwelling, leading you along a decked veranda, perfectly positioned to overlook the glistening waters of the charming pond, presenting a fabulous spot to soak in the evening sun with a refreshing drink after an action-packed day.

Stepping inside, you'll discover a wonderful open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with traditional wooden décor complimented by shabby chic furnishings, inviting you to kick off your shoes and unwind with a seat on the sofa before heading through to the amply-equipped kitchen to rustle up some culinary delights for the group to enjoy gathered around the dining table, planning your next adventure.

As the day draws to a close, prepare for bed with an invigorating rinse in the family bathroom before retiring for the evening, choosing between three thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, a king-size, benefiting from access to it's own en-suite bathroom, where you can enjoy an intimate escape with a soak amongst the bubbles, and two twin rooms, each boasting a colourful décor, one with it's own TV so you can watch all your favourite films from the comfort of the covers.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a leisurely stroll through the peaceful grounds of Percy Wood Golf & Country Park; let the little ones run wild on the adventure playground or test your swing with a round of golf at the on-site 18-hole parkland course!

If you don't fancy doing the cooking, head to Nelson's at the Park for a delicious home-cooked meal, served with a friendly smile, or head further afield to the village of Felton where you can indulge in a spot of afternoon tea at The Running Fox.
