FROM OUR GUEST BOOKS
we say other than this place is a little piece of heaven on earth. We
have all had the most wonderful time. Really appreciated the welcome
hamper and the completeness of all the facilities. We used the swimming
pool all 7 days! Just such a restful and beautiful experience and we
definitely hope to be back" Trevor, Jo-Anne, Beth and Zoe, N. Ireland
"This was our 4th
holiday in North Yorkshire but first time staying at Old Oak Cottages.
As usual Yorkshire was beautiful, but our stay here this year really
made the trip. The whole experience staying here was first class, from
the Pool to the Tennis to the Play Area. Kids met some wonderful friends
for the week. We will definitely be back! Thanks." Ross, Alison, Lucy
