  • "A beautiful cottage in Devon as a wheelchair user I’ve found wheelchair accessible properties aren’t always that well the Old dairy was fabulous for my limited mobility."

    We were welcomed onsite by John who couldn’t do enough for us such a lovely welcome after a long journey. We had a fabulous week and saw some beautiful places in Devon . The cottage was really well equipped too with everything needed and more and was very dog friendly too our pups enjoyed their stay as much as us thanks again John hope to be back again soon . Kayley Steven Julie and of course Ruby and Albie the pooches too xx

    Many thanks for your kind words, it was lovely to meet you all ...and your pooches too! I am very pleased to hear that you found the Old Dairy accessible in a wheelchair and you had everything you needed. Also great to know you like East Devon as much as we do! Sarah and I would love to welcome you back again any time. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was wonderful, secluded and peaceful, and splendidly equipped."

    However, within easy distance of the donkey sanctuary and several beaches. We particularly enjoyed the Seaton tramway which departs from the local village of Colyton. We found a much easier route to the cottage from Honiton via Google - I'm afraid the directions in your email were very confusing!

    Thank you so much for your feedback Judy. We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us in the Old Dairy. We have re-visited the directions and now also include the route from Honiton which will hopefully make it easier for guests to find. Property Owner

  • "We had a comfortable, peaceful, stay."

    The cottage was so well equipped even down to the dog box with spare lead, balls and treats as well as towels. Everything in the cottage worked well and the staff were pleasant and eager to please.

  • "The directions to to the property were totally inadequate."

    (please revise) After going round in circles and asking at least three different people for directions we phoned the owner who kindly came to meet us and we followed him. We would never have found it otherwise. The property was comfortable and pleasant walks nearby and lovely garden. Unfortunately weather awful for two days which put a damper on the holiday.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback, we are sorry that you had trouble finding the property, we have asked the owner to revise the directions to see if any changes need to be made. Property Owner

  • "Lovely homely cottage on small well maintained complex ."

    Warm welcome and delicious cream tea waiting for us ! Never stayed in such dog friendly self catering - enclosed gardens for that night wee trip , big field for a longer wander and the dog box with doggie essentials treats and poo bags !!! Peaceful location and yet close to all the main attractions . Such great communal outdoor spaces and the gorgeous summer house ( we had a picnic in there in the rain !) Tritchayne cottages really are a little piece of heaven in Devon . Thank you John and Sarah .

Offering dog-friendly accommodation, ramp access to the property, private and communal outdoor spaces and a woodburning stove, The Old Dairy is the perfect spot to bring your family for a peaceful escape in Devon.

After unloading in the designated car park spot, make your way into the property to discover a wonderfully spacious open-plan living space with a fully-equipped kitchen so you can rustle up tasty dishes for your loved ones; thanks to a handy dishwasher you won’t have to stress about the clean-up, and a washing machine ensures your holiday wardrobe stays clean no matter how muddy your adventures become.

Unwind in the sitting area and snuggle up in front of a roaring woodburning stove, ready to indulge in a movie marathon or a glass of wine with a book in hand.

Settle down at the dining table or venture out to the private patio to bask in an alfresco affair, taking advantage of the barbecue.

When you begin to tire, enjoy a soothing soak in the tub or a revitalising shower before heading to either a king-size or twin bedroom to catch your rest.

If you’re seeking a tranquil break in Devon, retreat to The Old Dairy.
