  • "Malcolm and Diane really made our stay enjoyable in the cost cottage."

  • "The owners are very helpful and easy to talk to, but not intrusive, and the cottage is well appointed and comfortable."

    We were struck by how peaceful the location is, with fine views. There are reasonable food shopping facilities in Bampton and Dulverton, and nice pubs all around. The cottage is on a working sheep farm, but we were allowed to walk over the owners' fields to take in the scenery. We enjoyed talking to Malcolm and Diane about various aspects of their life on the farm, as well as getting advice about where to go in the area. There is necessarily some activity in the sheds near the cottage at certain times of the day – perhaps adding trellising or more plants on top of the breeze-block wall surrounding the courtyard area would be a useful idea. We had a wonderful stay at the Old Dairy and would be pleased to go back to this cottage.

  • "The Cottage was extremely clean, warm, comfortable and very well equipped."

    There was initially a problem with the heating which was not correctly set but the owners sorted it immediately and throughout our stay they checked if all was well with us. We found them to be most helpful and pleasant. The Cottage is in a quiet location with nice views and a favourable situation near to the little town of Bampton which provided all the facilities we needed including takeaway meals and in some cases delivery. It was a very pleasant and relaxing holiday.

  • "We had a really good holiday at The Old Dairy."

    We will definitely go back again. The cottage was spotlessly clean. The bed took a bit of getting used to but that's only because at home we have a super kingsize bed and the cottage was just a double. The only thing I would say is there are no instructions for the cooker so we couldn't use the grill part but apart from that it was perfect. The owners Diane and Malcolm we very friendly and approachable and nothing was too much trouble.

  • "The Old Dairy Cottage was an extremely comfortable and relaxing place to stay."

    The owners were friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage was well equipped and had everything you could need in a home away from home. The outlook is beautiful and no matter which direction we travelled in we found ourselves surrounded by stunning scenery. A wonderful week away.
