5/5 Excellent

Quiet little hideaway

The cottage was ideal for us being just the two of us and the dog. There is plenty of places to visit with lovely beaches, challenging walks and amazing views! We found the cottage a welcome place to relax at the end of a full day exploring Dorset. The kitchen is well equipped, bathroom has a decent shower and the bed is comfortable. The only issue we had was finding the place as the postcode doesn’t help much in google maps. If you happen to use what3words the location is hotel.thudding.aimed Overall a very enjoyable holiday!

Comfortable Ideal Location

Had a lovely 4 night break at The Old Dairy, accommodation very comfy, good facilities and our dog loved the garden, which was safe for him to run around in. It was also a sheltered spot for us, the weary walkers, to sit in the afternoon and watch the sun go down. The Owners were friendly and we appreciated the lovely box of biscuits left for our arrival. We hope to return again for another relaxing break.

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely beautiful

We had a lovely stay. There was everything there that we needed the owners had thought about absolutely everything, even down to milk in the fridge and a lovely box of biscuits waiting for us. Beautiful barn situated in a lovely area, we will definitely be returning.
