"Really enjoyed our stay at Oaklea. The owner was very helpful and accommodating, and the cottage/house was clean, tidy and very well equipped. The location was brilliant and the views stunning. Plenty of space and hot water and the gardens were lovely. The children really enjoyed playing in the gardens and with the many games in the house. The house was a well loved family home and we as a family loved it too. Can't say enough other than we had a really great time." King Family
