Absolutely loved our stay!
We had the most perfect week. The cottage is beautiful and so clean. We arrived to a lovely welcome pack for both us and the dogs! It is a really dog friendly cottage with a safe and enclosed garden. Beautiful location and so relaxing,would highly recommend this to anyone,especially if you are looking for a dog friendly place!
What a lovely holiday cottage very quiet and peaceful everything catered for and very comfortable. Situated in the countryside but within easy access of the coast. Will definitely book again!
Private, secluded well equipped cottage
We enjoyed a perfect weeks stay at the Dairy. The cottage is ideally placed for touring the south Devon coast. The cottage is well furnished and equipped with a private outside eating area and ample parking.
If you want to get away from it all this is the perfect place. Lovely welcome card and eggs, milk and fresh strawberries plus scrummy cookies. The cottage is spotless and probably one of the best nights sleep I've ever had away. If you have a dog this is the place for you as our dog loved it. It's all enclosed with a lovely garden plus when you arrive there's a dog treat, bags, water bowl and towels which was lovely as I always worry how people are with dogs. Our children loved it as they could play around and the owner said they could go exploring in the fields and in the morning the cows were in the field so that made their day. We had a BBQ in the evening as the cottage has one and it was a perfect finish to a hot summers day. Thank you Vicky, Nick and family for a welcoming fabulous weekend break.
Such a super relaxing break!
My family and I stayed here for Easter but we really wished we could have stayed longer as the area is so beautiful and peaceful.
The cottage itself is of high quality with a very well equipped kitchen, good range of entertainment and extremely clean. Reading through all the positive reviews in the guest book most guests who have stayed here are families or couples with dogs but you would never have known as the cottage is pristine! The garden is fenced so very safe to let your dogs run lose.
A fantastic welcome treat was waiting for us which we all appreciated after a long journey! There is plenty of information about the area and ideas for days out. The sea is approximately 10-15 minutes away with stunning coastal paths and pretty villages to explore.
We will definitely be back and next time for a week and in the summer so we can make use of the garden!
Excellent visit - what else can I say except a huge thank you. You really know how to make your guests feel at home.
Fantastic property in an idyllic location!
Perfect for our Christmas getaway. Immaculately clean and cosy furnishings, with everything we needed for a 3 day retreat. Lovely hospitality as we arrived to find prosecco in the fridge and fresh eggs from the farm. Would be back in a heartbeat!
The Cottage is 10 to 15 minutes drive from the Jurassic coast and its towns of Sidmouth, Beer, Branscombe and Seaton, whilst being Iocated in a tranquil rural spot in the lush green Devon countryside.
