Oaklea is a lovely very peaceful self catering four bedroomed family house with the most glorious views across the valley; the house is surrounded by a large well kept garden with lawns and flower beds and securely fenced for children. With the most stunning views visitors also can enjoy glorious sun sets and wonderful vast starry skies.... the house has a telescope to look across the valley.

The house is set in 30 acres of rolling farmland, in the romantic and beautiful Golden Valley. This is an area of outstanding beauty, over looking The Black Mountains, with Hatterill Ridge, The Cats Back and The Skirrid Mountain all close-by, with walks straight through a garden gate and across the fields, directly from the door. Offa's Dyke Path is within easy reach for keen walkers.
