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!

What more can I say. Everyone else on tripadvisor has said it for me. We booked this B&B after looking at previous reviews. We then recommended it to my parents, who then stayed here before our booking. We all love this place. If you like rural, then this is the place for you. The rooms are spacious and have everything...

It's rare to encounter anything man made that's absolutely excellent, spot-on, can't-be- improved. However, the owners of this B&B have got everything just right. A cow shed has been divided into three spacious rooms, each with an en-suite shower/toilet/sink and each room with it's own front door. The rooms have been furnished to a very high standard to include comfortable... More

Thank you so much for such a great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed it here and as you could see the cows seem very happy in pastures new next door! We enjoy it when we have lovely people to chat with at breakfast and it's good to hear laughter in the dining room (great sense of humour Ian).... More

I was en-route to Ireland and decided on a stopover to see the Carmarthenshire countryside. As a independent travel writer, I pay to stay in accommodation for over 200 nights a year. I rarely write online reviews, but the Old Dairy is one that deserves mention. Too many B&B's in the UK still suffer from a combination of tired decor,... More
