The Space

Oak Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed home with roses at the windows, dating back to 1550 with large inglenook fireplaces in both the lounge and kitchen and exposed beams throughout.

Oak Cottage has a lovely secure private courtyard garden where there is a 4 seater Jacuzzi and 4 seater authentic barrel sauna from Sweden for your private unlimited use, plus Rattan garden furniture and a pizza oven and BBQ.

It can be booked with nearby Owl's Hoot one bedroom romantic barn with hot tub, and Honeysuckle Cottage, a two bedroom and two bathroom cottage with Jacuzzi. Both these properties are also in the village and are both listed on AirB&B, if you require more accommodation for larger groups.

If Oak Cottage is booked on your chosen dates, why not see if Lavender Cottage, Honeysuckle Cottage or Owl's Hoot are available? All three properties are located in the village of Stoke Ash, near Eye, with all necessary amenities within easy reach.

For romantic breaks and special occasions, why not ask us to have a chilled bottle of Italian Prosecco and luxury chocolates ready for your loved one? We can also put anniversary or birthday banners in the cottage. Please do ask us about these extra surprises if you are booking for an extra special stay.
