Sometimes you come across a holiday stay that feels like home. The Old Dairy is one such place and my husband and I were delighted to be back for a second visit. Debbie and Ian's attention to detail is second to none. Yet again we were really impressed by the cleanliness of our room, The Daisy, and how every comfort... More

Me and my partner had a weekend break here at the old dairy. Stunning views from outside the property. The accommodation is separate from main building with your own key. The bluebell suite had living area and bedroom with en-suite. It was like a cottage let. I Can't stress enough how clean and new looking this place was. The rooms... More

Couldn't think of anywhere more beautiful to stay for three days ill in bed!!! Ian and Debbie couldn't do enough. The room was so lovely and was equipped with literally EVERYTHING that you could think of. We were constantly supplied with sweet treats, bottled water and tea. The location is amazing. From what we did see around the area it... More

We have just returned home after saying at what has to be the best Bed and Breakfast we've ever stayed in, and we have stayed in many, both in the UK and on our numerous road trips abroad. Debbie and Ian really know about customer service and this started the moment we arrived. We stayed in the Bluebell suite and... More

This visit was the first time we have ever stayed in a B&B and it was wonderful!! The couple who run it are amazing and have thought of everything to make sure that your stay is great. Situated by a lovely castle, in the middle of nowhere, I would highly recommend staying here. We stayed in the Bluebell Suite and... More

Beautiful location and accomodation to match. A world away from any B&B visited in the past which says a lot given the travelling my wife and I do in our work. Rooms are exceptional in space and thoughtful furnishings and so many lovely extra touches which are more associated with very high end hotels. The welcome and service provided by... More

This B&B is an absolute gem and I cannot praise it too highly. This is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in and some top hotels could learn a thing or two from the Old Dairy. The rooms were exceptionally clean and there were some lovely touches such as fresh milk for tea, plenty of tea bags, cotton... More

Perfect, peaceful location with beautiful country views - an excellent base for so many interesting visits and a range of great days out. Debbie and Ian can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable without being at all intrusive. A wonderfully comfortable stay with fabulous breakfasts!
