Lovely cute cottage (Mouse) Perfect for a weekend away with my daughter. our first time in Mouse but stayed in Squirrel before which was equally as nice. Lovely personal touches. Feb 2018

The cottages are fantastic (Pheasant and Squirrel) So well equipped and homely. Lovely furnishings, lovely welcome hampers. We loved the pool and we loved the views. Will definitely be back again! Feb 2018

What a beautiful and tranquil place. We arrived on my birthday to a basket full of goodies to start us off and anything you need - it's in the cottage! the second day we ventured into the lovely York and when we arrived back, we had the pool and sauna all to ourselves, which was amazing. thank you for letting us stay and we will be back! Feb 2018

Our fourth visit to Old Oak Cottages in the last twelve months and back again in three weeks! Our favourite haunt for a chill out time, plenty to do in the area and always a very warm welcome from Amanda and John. Looking forward to our next visit! Oct 2017

Last here ten years ago - how time flies. Had forgotten how lovely it is here with so much to do. Cottage perfect, welcome pack lovely, won't leave it as long next time!  Sept 2017

What an absolute pleasure it has been to stay here in Beaver cottage. Our first visit but not our last! It has been the perfect base from which to visit many interesting and beautiful places, and its been great returning to the fully loaded cottage each night for a swim with the girls before dinner. The grounds are utterly gorgeous, perfectly maintained and it feels like you have considered every little detail from Nespresso coffee maker to a set of steak knives, to a jumbo trampoline and playground, to the fabulous pool, to helpful instructions sent before arrival. Five star *****! thank you Aug 2017

Always love to return to Old Oak Cottages as often as we can. All the cottages are so clean, so comfortable , so well equipped in a quiet peaceful location, but with so many places to visit nearby. Squirrel has lovely far reaching views of the countryside and the White Horse of Kilburn. We climbed here on our last visit in December. I had the wonderful facility of the pool all to myself every dip. Thank you Amanda and John for the very generous welcome hamper and for your attention to detail. New places visited this time and usual favourites, Must come for longer next time. July 2017

Wonderful Cottage, Everything we needed, lovely countryside. Babies very well catered for. Many thanks.  June 2017
