Fab, Fab, Fab,! Extremely well furnished and equipped place to
stay, the facilities are great and every attention to detail thought
of, would definitely stay again, thanks very much.
Stayed for a week in October and the weather was great. Badger
cottage is well equipped and had everything we needed even down to a
bed guard and baby monitor for the children. The owners were lovely
and helpful. We had some lovely days out visiting local towns and
villages. Forrester's Arms in Kilburn was great food at a reasonable
price. We had a great week and cannot fault Badger cottage at all.
Thank you. October 2018
Brilliant location with a fantastic, clean, bright, well equipped
cottage. Visited some lovely villages and towns. Amanda and John
this is a wonderful retreat kept to an amazingly high standard.
Thanks October 2018
Stayed at Old Oak Cottages several times. We love the place!
faultless 10/10 in every way. Also the Carlton Inn is fantastic.
Thank you once again Amanda and John, we will be back!
This house was base for a family celebration for a 60th Birthday.
We knew the cottages were good, but they exceeded our expectations.
Thank you John and Amanda August 2018
Another great holiday here at Old Oak Cottages. the facilities
and local area just make for a lovely time with family/. we all
loved it in Pheasant and cant wait to come back again next year.
I felt welcome and at home straight away and hope to be back very
soon. The cottage, grounds and surrounding countryside are a delight
and I could not have hoped for a more beautiful and relaxing
retreat. Thank you. May 2018

ourselves, which was amazing. thank you for letting us stay and we

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
Our first visit to Beaver Cottage - and extremely enjoyable it was
too. We had a fabulous time exploring Yorkshire and it was great to
return to Beaver cottage each evening. the cottage is extremely well
equipped and very homely. We swam each morning and enjoyed the spa and
sauna. Great location and wonderful to look out of the window at the
ewes and lambs. thanks! May 2017
place to stay and enjoy the New Year. The cottage has everything you
need and more. Wonderful views across the countryside make this the
ideal place to relax. We all enjoyed the pool, sauna and spa. Facilities
for children are fantastic with lots to do on site. We will certainly
return. Thank you Amanda for a lovely welcome. January 2017.
We have lost count of how many times we have stayed at Old Oak over
the years in various cottages, all so comfortable, clean, warm, cosy and
ideal for all our needs. So relaxing and a pool too!. Who could ask for
more. Thank you once again Amanda and John for welcoming us back, your
most generous hamper, fantastic facilities and attention to detail. December 2016.
A lovely place for a celebratory family get together, lovely quiet
location, beautifully decorated and furnished cottages, we all enjoyed
the facilities, welcome basket and luxurious lines. December 2016
We've had a superb week here at Owl
cottage with fantastic weather as an added bonus. The cottage and
facilities (pool, sauna, grounds) are all first class and we felt at
home straight away and the hamper a thoughtful and kind welcome. We
enjoyed cycling in spectacular countryside, daily swims, visits to York,
Helmsley, Rievaulx, Sutton Bank, Kilburn and the local pubs. Many Thanks
