    The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed, the owners have thought of everything. It was perfect for us and our dogs who also had a great week with lots of lovely long walks! We will definitely be back and are already looking to book again for next year. I would definitely recommend a stay at The Dairy, we absolutely loved it.

  • "Absolutely wonderful."

    Beautiful accommodation with everything you could possibly need and with a stunning view over peaceful countryside. Arrived in a scorching hot week which brought us back early every afternoon but it was enough to just sit & look at the view & enjoy the antics of the birds. We truly relaxed here. The dog loved our early morning walks but I think she loved the enclosed garden best with the freedom to explore, roll in the grass or just chill with us. Thank you for a truly lovely holiday!

    Accommodation was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Garden was very secure so we didn’t have to worry about the dogs. Lots of nice walks and not too far from some lovely beaches.

    Great cottage which is actually a lot bigger than the photo’s showed. Highly cleaned and with everything that you could possibly need for the kitchen etc. Great walks for dogs all around too and very dog friendly with a secure garden. Not too far to Tesco’s Supermarket approx 20 mins in the car. The games room was great too with a good choice of DVD’s for the rainy days which we had a few being in March. Those that have had or going to have BBQ’s on the patio what a fabulous view to sit and have a glass of wine enjoying the sun and scenery. Loved the welcome pack too a very nice touch. Very comfy and warm in the cottage and enjoyed the log burner for our rainy days. Overall 10 stars.

    It has been decorated and equipped to a very high standard. The Dairy was very clean, warm and comfortable. The internal layout was idea for a relaxing holiday. The welcome pack was great, thank you. Our hosts were very friendly. Walks from the top of the lane was lovely and ideal for our 2 dogs. The enclosed garden was again great for the dogs. The weather was nice for the start of February and we often looked over the stunning valley from the terraced area. The track to the Dairy is well maintained and was no problem for my car to drive down. Our dogs loved the local beach at Popit sands. Will definitely return again

  • "The location was excellent in that it was peaceful, comfortable and very well equipped."

    It was a bit of a trek to the nearest pub and, being out of season, the opening hours were shortened, meaning we would have to drive or walk there in the dark, but we had plenty of wine and beer with us and a really lovely cottage at our disposal, so not too much of a hardship! The information provided regarding local attractions, pubs and so on was invaluable, supplemented by a chat with one of the owners. Overall an excellent place to stay - would recommend.

The garden was super safe for the dog and our hosts made us feel genuinely welcome. We appreciated the personal email they sent a few days before our arrival, and responded immediately to a request we made.

The welcome pack on arrival was very much appreciated and full of local produce including eggs from their own chickens - I have had free range eggs before but none have tasted so good as these - must be very happy hens! Beautiful dog friendly beaches for the dogs to run on and well signposted footpaths and bridle paths from the farm itself. We did get lost once and ended up walking 7 miles instead of the 2-3 that we meant to do although the unexpected waterfall was a bonus and the dogs enjoyed a swim in the stream.
