We had a very nice stay at the Oakley B&B after a long walk on the Offa's Dyke Path. The hosts, Lynne and Ian, made us feel very welcome: tea and Welsh cakes on arrival, a spacious and clean room, great hot shower and wonderful views. Ian was so kind to drive us to dinner in the Castle Hotel in... More

After a hard day walking this B&B was a very welcome haven. Fabulous views, fantastic food and all round excellent service from Lynne and Ian. We stayed at some great places on our walk but this stands out, and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

We 3 sisters stayed here on our Offa's Dyke walk and we cannot recommend it more highly as a wonderful place to stay. Spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, delicious food and such warm hospitality. Thank you both so much.

Spent one night here while doing the Offa's Dyke walk, welcomed by Lynn with a pot of tea and some delicious cake. The views from this property are outstanding. Our room with ensuite was on the ground floor, it was spotless and really comfortable. The best nights sleep on our whole journey to date. There is also a guest lounge... More

Oakley B&B's location is nothing short of stunning! The views from here are around 160 degrees wide over the valleys and hills of both Wales and England. The welcome from Lynne Higgs was very friendly and warm. Watching grey wagtails and buzzards flying by was just another bonus. We were offered a hot drink and a cake on arrival in... More

As we first arrived we were offered tea and biscuits in the lounge. The hosts were welcoming and helpful and drove us to an adjacent village for our evening meal. Nice, clean and a good breakfast. Lovely view of the landscape from the garden.
