Oat tree view was just beautiful. We came here for our honeymoon. We arrived to some beautiful personal gifts which made our day!
The cabin is beautiful and so clean. This is a self catering cabin but on arrival there are tea, coffee and sugar available. They even leave some milk in the fridge for you! The hot tub is cleaned and maintained by the owners so we just sit back and relax.
Watching the sheep and baby lamps was amazing! The site is peaceful and has amazing views. The cabins are spaced out so you have 100% privacy. We can’t wait to book again.

I couldn’t recommend staying here enough. We had the best time!! The accommodation was absolutely gorgeous, spotless and there wasn’t anything not thought of. From the moment of booking this lodge I was well informed all the way along…the owners couldn’t have been any more helpful and friendly if they tried. Lots of recommendations of things to do and where to eat which we found really useful as we didn’t know the area which is just stunning. The surrounding area is just beautiful, so scenic and plenty of wildlife. When we spent time at the lodge it was so peaceful. Even though other people were in the other lodges we couldn’t hear a thing which made us relax a bit more knowing they couldn’t hear our kids either 😂

Had a lovely stay at Oak tree view. The accommodation is spacious enough for 4 adults in the Winter, I imagine it would be even better in summer when you can make use of the outside table. The beds are comfortable and the whole place very clean, cosy and warm. Would love to stay again very soon.
