Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in December 2017

We had a wonderful stay, hosts made it very festive, with decorations and a tree. We all had a wonderful early Christmas with family. Really warm and fire almost not needed. Well equipped, and everyone enjoyed their own bathroom. The nature reserve was a hit and we saw starling murmurations, awesome sight. Would highly recommend a stay here. Thank you...

Thank you for such a lovely review. Holm Oak is great for winter breaks because the log burner really adds to the atmosphere. All of our barns at Lackford Lakes are well placed for local weddings especially as we are able to accommodate guests in a number of separate barns on the same site.
