What People Are Saying
We spent a long weekend celebrating an early Christmas with my husband's family. We are a very mixed group with ages ranging from 65 weeks, 10 adults and 10 children. But we found Oak Tree Farm to be very comfortable indeed. There was plenty of space for us all in the living area downstairs, and a great garden for the children to bomb around in. There was one hiccup where we discovered we were one bed short, but that was quickly rectified the management team. We would definitely go again for a similar weekend
