Previous visitors' comments about The Old Dairy:
It was a well-earned break needed by both of us and the cottage was ideal.
Mrs Self, Norwich, May 2013
Great location, standard of property and attention to detail. The welcome produce - homemade bread, sweet chilli and the wine were excellent along with the doggie treats. All aspects were catered for, will go back and can fully recommend The Old Dairy.
