Oak Cottage was a really lovely place to stay. The hosts, Kim & Michael were very welcoming and friendly. We had a twin room which had a small lounge area at one end, which was very pleasant We had breakfast in the conservatory overlooking a superb garden, where we could have sat all day just watching the many birds It was very handy for visiting Beamish.

Can't be faultedWe were tempted into staying here because of the almost unheard-of 100% customer rating. I see no reason to differ from that. The room is huge, accommodating a sitting area as well as the large bed. En-suite facilities were excellent, as were our hosts and the cooking.

We found the hosts of this guest house to be most friendly and helpful, we can't wait to come back again and explore the area a bit more, we were only stopping over en route for Scotland. But we could not fault the accommodation or anything about it. And the view over their lovely garden whilst eating our breakfast was second to none! Doubt we will ever find anywhere so lovely again. And try the pub next door too!!

Excellent B & B with added bird watching!Having read other reviews of Oak Cottage, I booked it for myself and my daughter for one night, and I was not disappointed. The room was spacious and well furnished, with comfortable twin beds and a large en-suite shower room. Kim and Mike were very helpful and attentive hosts, recommending several several places in nearby villages for a good evening meal. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast in the conservatory, looking out over the lovely garden and watching numerous different birds enjoying theirs! What a shame we could only stay for one night.

Fantastic LocationI stumbled upon Oak Cottage when looking for somewhere to stay when travelling to Scotland. The location was brilliant and the beds were so comfortable and despite not having received our booking from Late Rooms the hosts were most helpful!

Wonderful StayThis large spacious bed and breakfast is just lovely, nothing can beat the luxury you are surrounded with. Better than some 5 star hotels I've stayed. Breakfast is taken overlooking a panoramic view with the most magnificent assortment of birds I have ever seen in this country, including woodpeckers, jackdaws, goldfinches and the usual aray. Loved it and I am going back.
