Stunning from the very outskirts, the tree-lined property welcomes you to the 7 acres of land in which it sits. Throughout the home, you'll find traditional elements including large columns, original fireplaces and exposed wooden beams, yet the decor is stylish and modern. The heart of the house is the large open-plan living area, home to the kitchen, dining room and one of the lounge areas, with ceiling-to-floor bi-fold doors opening onto the vast garden. Outside make use of the heated swimming pool complete with hard cover and wonderful pool house (open April - September) with outdoor dining area and poolside pizza oven. The tall vaulted ceilings and large windows allow light to stream into the room, making it appear bigger and more impressive than it already is!

For a bit of peace and quiet, feel free to head into one of two lounge areas, where you'll find a feature fireplace in each and a TV with a games console in one. Younger kids will love the playroom filled with toys, whilst older youths will no doubt hang around the games room. Despite being on holiday you'll have no excuse not to exercise, as you have a private indoor gym. The six bedrooms are no doubt presented as fashionably as the rest of the property, and two unique mezzanine bedrooms offer a family sleeping space that takes the sting out of having to share with the kids.

We booked this property for a 30tj birthday celebration weekend with family. The house was perfect! So much room for hosting, all available equipment and lots of great things for the kids. We loved the hot tub and went in everyday. Sad to leave! Thank you for a great stay, we will be back!

This place is truly amazing. So much for children to do, we barely saw them! Loved their bedrooms. Lovely walks, starting from the garden gate. Really nice, helpful staff, who were on hand for any issues, such as turning the hearing down a lot!

By far the best equipped house we have stayed in. Very comfortable with lots of space for all. Caution if taking dogs as property not completely secure.

My wife & I stayed at Oakfield for two weeks & the house, grounds & pool are just fantastic. The house was huge but clean & had everything you needed. Also the pool house was very well equipped.
