"Oak Hall continues to offer a wide range of holidays in its summer programme that are designed with adventure in mind. For those who prefer a more mellow style we have arranged ideal tours with no overnight travel. All age groups are welcome, but this holiday may particularly appeal to those in the more mature age group."
