Was looking for somewhere to stay prior to visiting the National Arboretum, but did not fancy any well known chain hotels. Looked on numerous sites and came across Oak Tree Farm, which suited our needs. Booked a double room for my wife and myself and a small room for the Mother in Law. Both rooms (11 and 12) were very well laid out, clean, comfortable with good facilities., such as Kettle withTea/Coffee, DTV, Iron and Ironing Board, Hairdryer, Toiletries, etc etc. The hotel does not provide evening meals, but we found a good pub at the end of the road (The Tame Otter) The food there is very good with fairly reasonable prices. We all had a great night's sleep. The beds are very comfortable. We tried the small swimming pool, which was ok, but had dead wasps at one end of the pool.
The breakfast is fantastic with lots of choice from full english to smoked salmon and kippers.
The dining room is well laid out with different size tables, each with it's own toaster!. Was not sure about this at first, but you can't beat hot toast, therefore it works well and is a good idea. Breakfast is not rushed, all orders are cooked fresh, which means your food is fresh and hot. Be prepared to wait a bit, but the wait is well worth it.
The 2 ladies in the kitchen are very nice and work like trojans to provide an excellent service.
Overall a very comfortable and pleasant short stay. It would be nice if the rooms had a booklet with local information such has restaurants, pubs, places to visit etc.
Would stay again, if in the area.
