The Royal Oak is a quintessential British bed and breakfast set in the quaint village of Yattendon.
We have stayed a couple of times and found it peaceful, unpretensious, and cosy. Previously, we stayed in a room over the pub but were greeted and taken to a newly renovated building next door upon arrival on this trip.
Our room was spacious and comfortable with big windows letting in lots of light. If traveling with an infant, this would be a good room as there was plenty of place for a cot and baby gear.
The bathroom was the star of the room
Lots of space
The only improvements I could suggest is a few more hooks in the bathroom and a clock in the bedroom. Minor, very minor!
The outside area of the pub was lovely but due to the temperature, we were unable to enjoy it as much as we would have done and enjoyed our time in the warm pub instead.
Sounds like reason enough for another trip…..
Before setting off, a filling breakfast with cooked-to-order options, local jams and honey, and freshly squeezed orange juice is on offer.
Guests can also wander to the butcher across the street or the village shop for supplies like locally made jams.
I do recommend this cosy B and B if making a visit to Berkshire. There are things to do like long countryside walks somewhere such as Inkpen, visits the West Berkshire Brewery or dining at one of Mike Robinson’s restaurant, The Pot Kiln in Frilsham.
Nice rooms, welcoming staff, cosy pub, lovely garden area….what is not to like about the Royal Oak in Yattendon?
