    The weather was awful but Paul and Jan could not have tried harder to make our stay as perfect as they could. From giving us lifts back from the local pub to constantly sending firewood across the paddock for the hot tub! We will be coming back again without a doubt, a perfect three night break!

    Really comfortable bed and extremely clean. There was a new hot tub with an additional £15 cost for logs to heat which we thoroughly enjoyed using. One of our favourite holidays, would highly recommend.

    Hello Bobbie, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear the accuracy of the listing and facilities management wasn’t quite right for you. As you know the wood fired Hot tub was a late addition and whilst we waited to have the listing updated we charged for the firewood. With regards to glassware breakage we have removed glassware from the hut going forward. Despite the isolated areas above we were pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in The Oak Hut. We very much look forward to hosting you again soon. Kind regards Paul & Jan Property Owner

    We couldn’t find anything to moan about even if we tried, the hut is stylish and very comfortable, the land is beautiful and peaceful, the fishing was brilliant and the fish were immaculate! and the owners are lovely people! From the very friendly hello to the goodbye we felt very welcome and looked after. The whole family felt like good friends. Our 3 little dogs had the time of their lives too running around the fields and watching the horses and sheep! The owners have been so thoughtful when creating this little gem, the kitchen had everything we could have needed to use, it was stocked with everything from washing up liquid to poo bags. We cant wait to go back and we have lovely memory's of our first trip to the oak hut! Thankyou!!

  • "Had a fantastic stay here at the Oak Hut."

    Myself, partner, a dog stayed for three nights; beautiful property with a lovely welcoming family. Paul was great and nothing was too much trouble. Our little dog had the best time - massive fenced lawn for her to run around and play. We loved the horses, sheep, and four Labradors that greeted us throughout the day. Cabin was very modern, bed extremely comfortable, and had all the mod-cons. Property also had a lake which you could sit by during the sunset. Shops about a ten minute drive, with a lovely pub just down the road. If you want a break from the madness of life, book here. Literally no complaints. We’ve never felt so peaceful - we’ll definitely be back!
