We love to meet and greet our guests to provide a warm welcome and ensure you have a great start to your stay.
Whilst we live adjacent to the cottages, we leave you to your own devices but are happily available to help with local information/recommendations.
Outdoor seating is provided as the courtyard in warmer months is bathed in all-day sunshine.
We purchased the Royal Oak and holiday cottages in 2018, to realise our dream of running a small holiday business after retiring from our careers in the Public Sector.
We have lived and worked in the area for 30 years whilst raising our 3 daughters.
Our ethos is to deliver high standard accommodation with high levels of comfort and cleanliness, whilst providing a home-from-home atmosphere in which to relax.
