  • "We didn’t want to leave!"

    The dairy is a beautiful house surrounded by rolling hills and cows…lots of cows! The little park was a hit with the children who have lots of steam to burn off. Johnathan(the owner/farmer) made use feel very welcome and introduced himself on arrival. We had an issue with my glasses…Johnathan came and saved the day with extra small screwdrivers to fix them. He is a very kind thoughtful chap! He also made our 4 year olds week by letting him Sit in his tractor(he is obsessed with tractors) The little ponds are down the road, they aren’t immediately on your door step, so as long as you don’t let your children roam the whole farm alone, they aren’t a danger. You do not need to take anything extra like towels, bottle openers, all kitchen accessories, it’s all there! There is even a tea pot and cafetière ready to use. The washing machine and dishwasher work as they should and are added bonuses as I certainly don’t want to be taking wet smelly clothes home or washing up all holiday! Do remember this is a working farm(cows…lots of lady cows who have the freedom to roam and enter the milking station at their own accord 24/7) Even with the cows roaming, it is silent, peaceful and relaxing. We will be back next year! Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

    Thank you for your feedback. So pleased you felt so welcome and that we were able to help make your holiday one to remember. We are looking forward to seeing you soon. Property Owner

    Despite this is was a quiet place. It was clean, spacious and with the added surprise of a cat that visited on a daily basis.

  • "Loved the Location,the accommodation was perfect for us,bed was comfortable and the facilities were spot on."

    Also the farm cat visited lots,we even bought cat food for it during our stay. Nothing like waking up and the first sound you hear is the cows mooing. Only negative was the shower water pressure,But to be honest you expect it when your in the middle of nowhere so wouldn't hesitate to go back to The Dairy in the future. Nice little gift of a jug af fresh milk and a packet of biscuits when we arrived,also the farmer/owner popped round to make sure everything was OK and that we were settling in OK.

    Thank you for your feedback and glad you had an enjoyable stay. Property Owner

    The cottage was spotless and the bed was the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in.Stunning views .So nice to wake-up to the sound of the cows & sheep.It’s only a short drive to the village where you can a great meal. And I would especially like to thank Nicky for letting me help with bottle feeding the lambs. Would love to come back in the summer so we can make more of the outside garden space.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Very glad you enjoyed the beautiful area we live in. The lambs are doing very well and the small lamb now takes his bottle as fast as the big lamb.Would love to see you in the summer . Take care. Nicky and John. Property Owner

    Lovely views from the upstairs windows, and the side bedroom is interesting for seeing the cows feeding in the yard! Only a short drive to Duckpool for the coastal path. Loved the enchanting pond area for evening strolls. Will be back!

    The owners were very pleasant and helpful. They left us alone but were quick to respond to queries. The location is very peaceful and there is a lovely walk down to the cove. Although there are other holiday cottages on the farm, we were barely aware of the other guests.

  • "Really great location and cottage, my youngest especially loved seeing the cows each day and the tractors!"

    Everything we needed at house for a great week away, only issue was that there was limited water for showers at some points of day-literally no water! But only seemed to affect at certain points so not sure if when everyone in all the cottages using at same time? Wasn’t massive issue for us as we were out most days and always plenty first thing and in afternoons but just to be aware. We would definitely stay again -as location was brilliant , both the farm and surrounding

  • "The cottage was brilliant and all our needs were met."

    The owner was really friendly and said we could contact them if we needed anything. The children and I believe the adults liked seeing the cows waiting to be milked. The farm itself is close to lots of beaches and we really enjoyed our ramble down to Duckpool beach doing a scavenger hunt on the way. It can be a bit dicey on some of the lanes we drove carefully as we bumped into tractors,hedge cutters and vans. The London inn pup in a near by village served excellent home cooked food with super child friendly staff.

    We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and told us to text him if we needed anything. It is a good spacious cottage , very well equipped, very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. It’s situated in a beautiful rural area, very quiet and peaceful surrounded by farmland with hardly any passing traffic. There are some lovely walks from the cottage. A little further afield a stunning coastline. We would definitely like to return and would highly recommend.

About the location


Tintagel 17 miles.

Kilkhampton is an historic Cornish village, 4 miles from the popular Victorian seaside resort of Bude, one of Cornwall’s premier holiday locations. With its old church, village shops and atmospheric village pubs, Kilkhampton is a lovely place to relax after a hard day exploring the stunning beaches and spectacular coastal scenery for which the area is famous. Bude’s beaches attract surfers from all over the country and when conditions are right you’d be hard pushed to find better surf. When the tide is out, miles of golden sand and hundreds of rock pools keep visitors occupied for hours. The South West Coast Path, and many other rights-of-way winding over the clifftops and through lush green fields looking out over the sea, make this area a haven for walkers and lovers of the open countryside. For those who prefer staying closer to home, a good shopping centre and a selection of pubs, two clubs and restaurants are on offer. Bude canal, a registered nature reserve, passes through the town, and rowing a boat along its calm waters or walking the towpath among the beautiful (and friendly) water fowl that live among the reeds is a great way to spend an hour or two. Within the area there are also 2 golf courses, an indoor swimming pool, bowling alley at the leisure centre. A perfect location for all that North Cornwall has to offer.
