Just back from a lovely few days training at Devon Dogs. I stayed in the Annex which was lovely and got a warm welcome on arrival. There is always someone at hand but I didn't need anything because everything is there that you need. The dogs were very comfortable and my older collie loved the dog bed. The Annex is... More

I rented the Annexe on New Year Eve for a couple of nights it was a last minute decision and I was made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble, it was home from home. It had everything that I wanted and it was lovely and clean and warm, the dogs loved their treats. It was nice... More

We were so pleased you had a lovely break, you were very welcome with your 2 canine friends. It was good that you could get far away from all the fireworks and excitement and into the peace of the countryside. We would love for you to return, perhaps when the weather is better? Spring and Summer is wonderful here on... More

Our third visit to the Old Dairy. It's home from home. Cosy, clean, warm, omfortable. The welcome treats for humans and dogs is a lovely touch and really appreciated. Our four collies love it there. Secure garden and paddock. Fantastic walks right on the doorstep. Although the cottage accepts multiple dogs you would never know that as it is kept... More

It is bright and comfortable. I ate most of my meals that I prepared there myself but there are several pubs/restaurants close by and the cottage... More

This is our fifth stay at The Dairy, next year already booked. Warm, comfortable and always spotlessly clean. Our two collies love it as much as us, great garden and always a few treats for them when we arrive, plus a few for us humans as well. Great location, peaceful and relaxing. We enjoy eating at the Bearslake Inn, dogs... More

Had a wonderful time in the Old Dairy, such a good base for a visit to Devon. This is our second visit to Bowerland and again Carole was very welcoming. The cottage was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Training with Martina was very useful especially when our labrador, Otis, refused to go into his crate for feeding or sleeping!... More

We had a wonderful week in the Old Dairy cottage with our two dogs. Great secure garden for even the most determined escapee and a paddock for exercising/games directly opposite. The welcome packs for both humans and dogs on arrival were much appreciated and the owner was very helpful without being overbearing. Dartmoor is a beautiful area and the cottages... More

Spent a fabulous week at The Old Dairy last week.

I have just returned from a wonderful visit to East Bowerland Farm where I stayed in the delightful Annexe with my dog and had both private and group dog training at the farm with an excellent trainer. Everyone was welcoming and friendly and the facilities were outstanding. I shall definitely plan to return.
