Amazing venue, great family meet up

  • 4 of 5

We are parents of 4 adult daughters all married or with partners and 3 with little boys all under 2yrs. We live around the country and struggle to all get together at the same time but this venue was perfect. The little boys absolutely loved farmer Vic's feeding time with the animals and to have the farm and playground on tap was just great. We did't have to all get in the car and go somewhere to entertain them. We enjoyed lunch on the picnic tables and the boys had a paddling pool up in the courtyard as the weather was glorious. The accommodation is of a very good standard and we lacked nothing, my only reservation is the communal area isn't big enough for the amount of people the house sleeps. There is only sofa space for 6 and the kitchen prep area was on the small side when we were catering for so many. Thank you so much, everyone had a lovely time, we will be back!!!!

A fantastic base for us to meet with family. Location stunning, cottage amazing! We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Old Milking Parlour and had a fantastic time. It was a short getaway for us to spend quality time with family. Although there was 14 of us it didn’t feel cramped or we didn’t have enough room. The detail in each of the rooms is clear to see and the views are stunning. A wonderful home from home. Great location to visit other places and a real treat to come back to your own hot tub! Our girls loved joining Farmer Vic to feed the animals - he was so kind to them - and they had a magical time. Right from the start when we booked it, to coming home the service provided has been brilliant. We will definitely look to come back. Regards Jane & family April 2018

We very much enjoyed our weekend stay in the Old Milking Parlour which was great accomodation for all our families. The children especially had fun with Farmer Vic feeding the animals and collecting eggs from the chickens.

A Great place for a family break

  • 4 of 5

We'd picked Oakerthorpe because of the location and the reviews. We were a family group from all over so this was a prefect place for us to enjoy a weekend together. The accommodation was very high quality, clean and with all the equipment you could want. It was great that we could all eat together at the amazing dining table - the hub of our stay.

Everyone boasts about customer service but its actions that speak louder than words. On the first night we were surprised the security lights on the drive stayed on all night and made the ground floor rooms in the Old Milking Parlour very light. We contacted Vic the next morning and he was round very quickly to check what the issue was and then sorted it. Brilliant. No intrusive light for the rest of the stay.

The younger members of the group enjoyed feeding the animals with Farmer Vic and kept talking about it.

Thanks. We'd definitely recommend to other family groups looking for a place to stay together.
