Oak Dene was built in 1908 for Dr and Mrs John Wight as a home and surgery.  It is a unique building, being entirely surfaced in corrugated iron, inside and out.  It is encircled by deep verandas and it sits amid tranquil lawns and trees.  Our home is a retreat-like place that is ideal for a restful weekend or longer break, small conferences and as a base for wedding preparation and photography. The magnificent London Plane tree is on the National Trust’s register of significant trees.

The accommodation suite comprises a double and a twin bedroom, and a further fold-out bed. The sitting room is large and gracious, the dining room comfortably seats eight and the kitchen is fully equipped. This leads to a private veranda, garden and BBQ.  There is a large bathroom, utility room and second wc and the main rooms are heated and cooled. The twin bedroom is wallpapered – a technical feat over ripple iron.  It is a rare survivor from early last century and is showing its age. Your host lives in a separate wing of the house.  Both parts are fully self-contained but share the entrance veranda and carport. 

Oak Dene is situated in a cul-de-sac where bird chatter is usually the only intrusion.
