What a fantastic place, so peaceful with scenic views.

Enjoyed a lovely night and day next to the main lake.

Tried a bit of fishing too and was kept busy with small carp and rainbow trout, supposed to be a couple of 20 pounders in there!

Christine and Richard are wonderful hosts who give a big welcome and then leave you to your privacy.

Can highly recommend if you're looking for a peaceful time

Oaklands is one of the most delightful settings we have stayed in. We opted for EHU which meant we were in one of the first fields - each field in the top part of the site has just one row of pitches so the only option is to park overlooking beautiful green countryside, there is no way you can end up facing another row of caravans or campers here!

Our pitch overlooked a beautiful field, and then beyond to woodland and the lakes. Behind us was the disused railway track (which we walked this morning - we actually disturbed some deer, fantastic sight!). The pitch was level and the grass was well maintained.

One of the joys of this site is the option for campfires - very cleverly, the owners have provided each pitch with a hoop of corrugated iron to contain the fire. Simple but very, very effective. And there is plenty of fallen wood to be had too.

Another joy is the lack of rules on display - always a big bonus for us! Apart from one small notice in the shower asking users to give the floor a bit of a wipe to prevent accidents, I don't think we saw a single sign telling us what we could or couldn't do. That completely sets the tone for a nice, relaxing weekend.

The owners, Richard and Christine, are lovely; very welcoming, very knowledgeable, very approachable. Richard spoke to us about his plans for the lakes and he is clearly very committed to making the site even better.

The site is still being developed - at the moment the facilities are a little modest. The block at the end of the field had one each, male and female toilet, plus one shower. All were spotlessly clean. We didn't have to queue for either, but as the site grows I imagine they will have to add more blocks. The shower is free and there is hot water but the temperature controls are on the outside of the building so don't undress until you have the temperature you want!

The fishing lakes are surrounded by lovely walkways, through fields and woodland, and there is so much wildlife - as well as the deer, we saw geese, a heron, rabbits, dragonflies. Even the red rump of a stoat. It is a lovely place to stay if you are happy to explore.

I didn't spot any play areas for children, and given the limited toilet/shower facilities as well I'd probably say that this site might not yet be ideal for people with young children. But don't rule it out - if your kids enjoy rambles through woods spotting butterflies and shepherd's huts then give it a go.
