The Old Dairy forms a self contained annex of the main house and sleeps 5 one double bed and 3 singles Guests have use of the hot tub, bbq, play area and lawned garden as well as being welcome to stroll along the river bank though closing gates is essential to ensure we do not loose the horses. We own two dogs, two cats and 3 horses not to mention the wild rabbits in evidence at dawn and dusk. Whether you want to bring your bikes and cycle through the levels or your hiking boots for country strolls there is plenty of space, not to mention the beaches near by and theme park which is great for all ages.

Adjacent is the living/dining room equipped with a TV/DVD with freeview and CD player. Upstairs there is a galleried bedroom with a sloping ceiling, a double bedroom and en-suit shower room.

Misleading description
When we arrived Kevin was nowhere to be seen, we were greeted by a woman who ran out of cottage to say keys were in the door and Kevin would be back later and with that she went off in a car, which we thought was a bit strange. Maybe that should have set off alarm bells. My 2 year old grandson then proceeded to fall on gravel on the drive only to put his hand in some dried up dogs mess, so not a good start. Accommodation was dreary and extremely small for 5 people. Needs a good paint, cables loose and stairs very steep. Totally unsuitable for a toddler. Decided to have a look at garden as wanted to spend all our time outside in the fresh country air and in the Hot tub. Well we were so disappointed. Hot tub did look very nice but everything else was disgraceful. There was a lovely John Lewis bbq but looked like it had never been cleaned it had food all over it, filthy. Its advertised as a lawned garden, even though the photo shows woodchippings. Either would have been fine, but all there was, was overgrown weeds, stones and pieces of wood scattered about, not to mention more dogsmess. No trampoline or any of the toys in the photos except for a plastic red seesaw. The patio set was not the one in the photo it was rusty and old. We couldn't believe what we were seeing and there was no way a 2 year old could play safely there, even barbed wire around the outside of the 'garden'. We left without meeting Kevin so dont know if he is as helpful as people have said, although he did give us a refund without quibble when I rang him on the way home to complain, though this didn't help when you have a 12 year old in the car crying all the way home. When I mentioned the trampoline he said he'd removed that 2 years previously. The photos online must be about 10 years old. The description needs to be updated as its misleading and the place needs a complete overhaul and in my view is not suitable for children. As for the dogsmess, so disgusting. So so disappointing.

5/5 Excellent

This really was a great place to stay
me and my friends needed a couple of days away from our normal fast pace lifestyles and this was the perfect place. So relaxing and very quiet. The owners were so welcoming and very down to earth. We will definitely be booking again..thank you for having us

2/5 Poor

Disappointing
First off new this was a farm and would be quite "rustic". The property was set in a nice location and Kevin was fairly friendly telling us places to visit and where to eat. Unfortunately the farm itself was not very clean. There were webs all over the place most with spiders in, the shower and toilet again were not very clean and the kitchen was pretty grim, there was a film of grease over most of the appliances. I had emailed Kevin prior to booking to make sure dogs had not been in the property as my Grandson has allergies, he assured me no dogs were allowed in the property. This was not the case as there was dog hairs over most of the downstairs, this affected my Grandson's chest quite badly. The hot tub was nice but again everything surrounding it was just dirty, (we had to clean the outside table to put our towels on).I appreciate we are out the way on a farm but surely keeping a property clean for guests is a must. We actually left a day early due to the dog hair affecting our Grandson. It is such a shame as it could be really lovely. The whole lot just needs a damn good clean up both inside and out.

5/5 Excellent

Great place
Suitable for pet lovers.

5/5 Excellent

Great weekend away
Stayed here as a family of adults and we all really enjoyed our stay. Kevin the owner was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. We loved the animals on the property and going horse riding was a nice added touch. The highlight of our weekend though was spending our nights relaxing in the hot tub. If your looking for a nice relaxing weekend away I would definitely recommend going.
