                      The Old Hatchery is a tranquil place. The view is beautiful. The staff were friendly. The accommodation is lovely. My little fishing cabin had everything I needed. The restaurant food was good value for money & very tasty. I will go back there any time.

                      We had a very pleasant stay at The Old Hatchery (Oak Tree Lodge). The reception was hearty and we had everything we needed. The food was  tasty and the service good. The vicinity was very attractive, especially when the sun shone.
