"1st Class Holiday Accommodation"

We were a party of 8 and were a bit apprehensive as we had been let down by another website. We were lucky to book " Oakley House " at short notice, but our fears were groundless. Our party arrived in 3 different vehicles at different times of day, but we were met by the owners and given a guided tour of the property. The accommodation suited our needs perfectly. The grandparents had the twin bedded en suite room, the grandchildren had the other twin bedded room whilst the other 2 couples fought it out as to had the other en suite room. The property was clean and well kitted out with equipment, crockery, cutlery and TV's etc.

"A lovely and comfortable holiday home."

Very comfortable and well appointed. Everything we needed for the stay was provided. Ideally situated for a viariety of attractions. I would happily stay there again. The owners were helpful and met us on arrival to show us around. I also thought the rates were very reasonable and excellent value for what was provided.

Very warm welcome from the owners of the property. House very well equipped. Very clean and tidy. Great location with nice walk down the hill to Preston beach. Would recommend staying here.
