  • "A lovely cottage in a peaceful location with plenty of living space and a large enclosed garden."

    The goodies in the welcome basket were delicious and the dog bed and bowl in the kitchen a nice addition. Great location for Malvern, Ledbury, Tewkesbury, Worcester, Gloucester and Upton-Upon-Seven. Try The Swan at Hanley Swan for fantastic food and The Woodshed at Eastnor for a coffee then walk to the obelisk for wonderful views from the top of the Malvern Hills. There are no doors on the master ensuite or one of the double bedrooms which is odd and the cottage was lacking in a few bits such as kindling for the wood burner and a grill pan for the oven. A great place to stay and hope to return in the future.

The living room was so cosy with the woodburner and the beds are so comfortable, we didn't want to leave! The dogs loved the big garden too...we would definately recommend the Old Dairy to friends and family. Thank you to Ali, for a lovely warm welcome and getting us settled. Oh and for the wine and yummy cake!

  • "Wonderful stay over Christmas."

    The owners provided a Christmas tree and decorations which was unexpected but gratefully received. Property warm and comfortable. Lovely setting and the youngsters enjoyed the visit to the stables and the activity around the horses. Only slight grumble was that the hot water never seemed to reach the upstairs bathroom but other than that a really good stay.

  • "The owners were super friendly and lovely."

    The food at the Swan inn down the road is superb! The only slight quarm is that there were not enough mirrors could do with a full length mirror in each room. Also there was no door between the 2 downstairs end rooms so no privacy for couples. Also a few of the lights were not working Ie in the bathroom and the fairy lights outside would’ve made it even nicer. The hot water ran out very quick too so a few of us had freezing cold showers. Also in the twin room there was no accessible sockets for electrical items an extension lead would be very handy. But all in all really enjoyed it and would recommend.

  • "Lovely property, very clean, very comfy beds and peaceful location, very good host The only other observation would be that it would be good to have both hanging and drawer space in each bedroom and helpful to have bedside lamps…especially as an older person…a handy light in the middle of night is a good thing …!"

    We had a great week at this property, Would happily retur

  • "Our family (7 adults and the dogs) really enjoyed our time here."

    The house itself was a holiday as so fantastic, it had everything you needed. Its situated in a working Equestrian, although you weren’t disturbed by any noise, the whinny of the horses were lovely to hear and Ali, Tracey and the rest of the team were so friendly. Would highly recommend this place, and would come back again and again - perfect central for beautiful locations to explore

  • "The property was ideal for the 6 adults and 2 Dogs with the spacious enclosed grounds, The hounds had a wail of a time."

    Ali, Tracey & Robyn were very helpful & gracious hosts. No real down side at all, the only thing was that the power went of twice which was beyond anybodies control. Thanks for a great stay and sharing your Horses with us. Great to watch them swimming. We highly recommend you. Fondest memories Dave, Carrie, Anne Len Yazmine & Poppy plus Ruby & Daisy
