The property

Located in the quaint village of Shilton, The Old Dairy is a quintessential Cotswolds property, set back from the lane that runs through the heart of the village, very smart and very stylish.

Step inside to find a joyful show of colour and homeliness, large light rooms and a well equipped retreat ideal for a relaxing break.

Dating back to the 1680's, the building was originally the creamery and the place where butter was churned.

Today it retains a classical charm with high ceilings and large windows that make the space really welcoming.

The owners, who have completely renovated the building, have created a beautiful retreat.

Outside is a typical English cottage garden, with a delightful village beyond this.

Stroll to the pub (the owners can lend you wellies and coats if necessary!), jump in the car and be in Burford in about 3 mins or simply do nothing - this choice is your in this cracking holiday home.

    “The cottage was clean, warm and cosy.”

    The decor was lovely. The bed and sofa were very comfy. The hosts left us some lovely food.
