My husband and I stayed in one of the cottages at the Oaks in April 2014. The cottage is very rustic, with cement floors, distressed walls and odd furniture, This all added to the wonderful feelings of yesteryear but with many modern shabby chic additions. Beautiful quilts, comfortable beds and all the mom cons that one needs for a great weekend away. An indoor braai and TV make our stay special.
The area is very special, a lovely long walk into the mountains to a derelict homestead, stray kitties to love, great food in the village. Beautiful well kept surroundings.
The Oaks offers great accommodation but we choose to be in the cottage and glad we did. It was a wonderful weekend and Linton was a star. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
