  • "Such a beautiful property in a simply idyllic location."

    The cottage is fully equipped with everything you would need for the perfect getaway. Whether you are eating & drinking in the kitchen/diner which is a fab size or simply relaxing in the cosy lounge in front of the fire. As soon as we walked in we felt at home, The Old Dairy has a very warm welcoming feel to it even on a cold winters day, we had a fantastic stay, thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "The Old Dairy is a gorgeous and tasteful cottage that is impeccably run by its owners."

    Everything about it was five star quality. We spent a weekend cooking, watching DVDs in front of a fire and walking around the local scenery. The village pub is worth a visit too. Thank you for having us!

  • "Thank you for a wonderful week in your cottage."

    It was extremely well-equipped with all mod-cons. The beds were also extremely comfortable. We love staying in Stanton, especially The Mount Inn, where Pip & Karl always made us feel very welcome. This was our first time at The Old Dairy but hopefully won’t be our last.

  • "Just like last year, we had a wonderful time."

    Thank you for letting us stay in your cottage. We just love your house! And we will certainly be back.

  • "Another fantastic holiday in your lovely cottage has come to an end ."

    ... We enjoyed our stay so much, being in The Old Dairy feels like home. We have seen a lot of cottages throughout all our holidays in England, but never such a lovely, well-equipped and warm house. The doggies enjoyed their stay. We had a lot of walks in the fields. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your house again – if ever you visit Holland, please come and visit us, you are more than welcome.

  • "From all over the world, we have been coming to Stanton for 20 years, but this was our first time in The Old Dairy."

    The house is an absolute marvel, not just a holiday cottage, but a real home. A place to return to, and we certainly will. Thank you, L & B for your words and flowers of welcome and your personal attention when needed.

    The house is stunning and the location is just perfect! We enjoyed our walks through the Cotswolds, Broadway and Hidcote is an absolute must! We cannot recommend the local pub enough, The Mount Inn, where the food is excellent and the staff super friendly! Thank you for the goodies and this beautiful, clean and cosy house.

    Spending time in the cottage and visiting places has been great. We have taken our grandson, Riley, to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and had such a lot of fun – such a lot to see. Such a beautiful cottage and a stunning village, our family are so pleased to have found somewhere so special – thank you.

  • "We have all enjoyed a wonderful week here in this sublime place."

    Every need has been more than adequately catered for by the thoughtful owners. They even managed to arrange for the weather to behave itself, so who could ask for more? The location of this cottage is ideal and the atmosphere around the village is just simply marvellous. This has been a perfect holiday!

  • "What a beautiful cottage you have in Stanton."

    We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and don’t want to leave. We have tried to make the most of our stay by visiting lots of lovely Cotswold villages, but have looked forward to returning to The Old Dairy with its stunning décor and home comforts. Even the stormy weather couldn’t dampen our spirits, as we knew The Old Dairy would be warm and cosy inside.

  • "The Old Dairy is by far the best cottage we have stayed in in the UK."

    It is beautifully decorated, well equipped and situated in a perfect, tranquil location. It is ideally located for exploring the rest of the Cotswolds. We had such a fantastic time in this lovely house, we definitely want to come back again.

    We have been thoroughly spoilt in such a lovely place, so peaceful with only the clip-clop of the horses’ hooves, the birds and the sheep breaking the silence. You have a lovely home – thank you for sharing it with us.
