Our 9th visit to Oakthwaite. We stayed for 3 nights and didn't want to leave to come home. This is a top class B&B, exceptionally clean, wonderful breakfasts and only a short stroll onto the town. We always stay in room 2, superking but all rooms are excellent. We are back for New Year if not before. Don't hesitate to...

Just stayed at Oakthwaite House for a long weekend in January. Peter and Sandra are the most hospitable of hosts - nothing too much trouble, everything spotlessly clean, and lovely food. The standard of the accommodation is excellent and Oakthwaite is only a few minutes' walk from the town centre, so really convenient. We'd definitely recommend Oakthwaite House.
