The final push…

Wow, what a year it’s been for all of us. Living through a pandemic wasn’t on my bucket list and I suspect that feeling is pretty unanimous. At last, we’re tentatively looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel, brought by spring, lockdowns and the vaccine program.

Here at Under the Oak we have been lucky so far to all have our health and of course, we have a beautiful place to stay home, but it’s not the same when you can’t share it with friends, family and guests and that is what we’ve missed so much.

Winter and lockdown has given us time to plan some changes and tweak the site to make your stay even more special. For guests in the safari tents, we have created a new parking area much closer to the accommodation – without spoiling the views of course. This will make the experience of arriving and leaving a much more relaxed affair. The main entrance to site has been widened, tarmacked and cleared to make this possible, which has been quite a mammoth task in itself.

We enjoyed converting Cynefin, our railway carriage last winter so much that we decided to take on one more this year. Cartref will open later in the year and we’re so excited to show her off. She’s already in her position and almost watertight. Keep an eye on our social media for updates on the conversion. The jury is out on the bold colour choice but we are loving it and we hope you will too.

As always, there are fences to fix, cows to chase, signs to paint, paths to maintain and moles to do battle with to keep the whole place looking it’s absolute best so we’ll be flat out now until we are given the go ahead to open our doors once more. Bookings are coming thick and fast now!

We cannot wait to see you all soon
