We spent a week in the old milking parlour grande and also hired Elliott House for the weekend. In total there were 21 adults and 5 children
Oakerthorpe Holiday village is exceptional and I am already plotting a return visit.
The booking process was so simple and Rachel was really helpful (we had lots of questions and she didn’t seem to mind!!)
The accommodation is top class, clean and of a high quality. The beds are super comfy and I had a lovely nights sleep.
The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment and glasses, we had everything you could need. The oven is nice and big so it was easy to cook for everyone.
There is a nice outside area with a hot tub that we enjoyed chilling out in.
What made it extra special was Farmer Vic, the tour of the orchard was loved by the adults and kids alike. (We got to eat some yummy cherries) He was a gentleman and a pleasure to chat with. He’s constantly working and looking after the grounds which is why it is such a nice place.
If you are considering staying here then I am jealous as I want to go back now!
Perfect venue for a relaxing hen weekend. Great living space and comfortable bedrooms! Towels and bedding all felt luxury! Well equipped kitchen although the baking trays don't fit in the oven flat but we managed.
We stayed over the weekend of the 11 may 2018
13 adults 2 babies 4 children
Facilities were brilliant for everyone gorgeous house full of all the things we could possibly need ; hot tub and the play area where well used vic and rachel were great vic made the children's day taking them to see the animals rachel helped with any queries nothing was to much trouble .
The only point I would bring up is the family sleeping down stairs felt it could do with a bit of sound proofing for people walking above
But overall a fabulous weekend for a family celebration would go back in the blink of an eye x
19 of us stayed for 3 nights during the wonderful May sunshine. Ages ranged from 6yrs to 86yrs. Everyone loved the accommodation and the courtyard and hot tub was a great hit with all. The facilities were mainly as expected, we loved bring able to eat and sit together, it would have been nice to have more outdoor seating in the courtyard though. The orchard and playground was a favourite with all ages and we spent time exploring the local area. Great place for a family celebration.
Myself and fellow work colleague stayed at the barn for our team building session and were blown away by the appearance as well as the excellent service.
We had an array of well laid out rooms to choose from, with most having ensuites, so no fighting in the mornings for the loo.
There was a big fridge freezer to accommodate our online shopping order, which was delivered straight to the gate.
Lastly the private hot tub was a nice bonus though it was raining on our visit so unfortunately wasn’t able to enjoy.
Vic and team were able to not only accommodate our early check in/ late check out but Vic also kindly gave ourselves a tour around the Orchard to which we got to see the variety of animals they have.
We were also extremely lucky to help nest a few peacock eggs with a broody hen as well as see chicks hatch there and then!
Even when we had a slight technical issue with the Broadband, Oliver rapidly fixed the issue so our meeting went smoothly.
Overall this barn is ideal for large parties, who like the luxury of mod cons in a rural setting! Also great for families with the on site playground available.
Would highly recommend to anyone!
