Fluffy and four-legged creatures delight Oaken Holt residents and guests

Furry and four-legged friends drew smiles on the residents and guests of Oaken Holt  and Wytham House this week. Oaken Holt Estate’s much-loved farm day returned over the weekend, bringing a Shetland pony, ducks, rabbits, goats and lambs to our care homes in Farmoor.

Farms2ewe brought the animals in their droves to delight and entertain residents and their families. Stalls and games were also laid on.

While having a tour of Oaken Holt, Oxford West and Abingdon MP Layla Moran was introduced to the creatures.

She said:

“It was lovely to meet residents and their families, as well as the dedicated staff, at such a caring home.

“The Farm Day was a wonderful event and I am very much looking forward to my next visit to Oaken Holt.”

Care home manager Sherrie Hume said:

“It was a lovely day and a pleasure to welcome our new local MP to come and have a look around the estate.

“The residents enjoyed petting the rabbits and ducklings, and for those residents that were unable to attend, the people from Farms2ewe took rabbits and ducks to the rooms.

“As always the visiting relatives really enjoyed the Farm Day.”

The Oaken Holt estate is set in a magnificent country estate located in the peaceful village of Farmoor offering the perfect blend of tranquillity and accessibility with Oaken Holt providing residential and nursing care of the very highest standard for up to 55 elderly residents. Wytham House, our specialist dementia home is also located on the Oaken Holt estate.
