Beautifully furnished and well appointed yet retaining a country feel.

We are just five miles from the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath and 2 miles from the beautiful Saxon town of Bradford-on-Avon. Situated in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside the Old Dairy gives peace and tranquility in a quintessentially English Village.

Decorated with a stylish mix of vintage and contemporary furniture, comfortable pocket sprung mattresses, luxury cotton bed linen and fluffy towels. The Old Dairy has everything you need for a wonderful relaxing stay.

Absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

The Old Dairy, according to my hard-to-please 19 year old son, is the nicest rental cottage we’ve ever stayed in. It is beautifully furnished and equiped, with everything you might need. Everything is comfortable and tasteful, and spotlessly clean. The secure garden was perfect for our large dog, and Dinah and Mark were welcoming without being intrusive. Bradford-on-Avon is a lovely small town, and the cottage is perfectly placed for visiting Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire. Highly recommended.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful stay in the Old Dairy. The property is maintained to the highest standard and is particularly well equipped. Dinah provides many thoughtful touches, one of which is a welcome pack of bread, eggs, cereals, milk and butter. We enjoyed the garden and BBQ for evening drinks and many meals as the weather was warm.

Gorgeous, comfortable cottage with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

The Old Dairy has been refurbished and appointed to a very high standard. The kitchen is well-laid out and well equipped. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are luxurious. We had a wonderful stay here, and enjoyed walks over the fields despite the unusually cold March weather. Dinah and Mark are delightful hosts. Having inquired ahead of time about local restaurants with gluten free options for a family member with celiac disease, we found a basket of gluten free breakfast foods waiting for us when we arrived. We highly recommend the Old Dairy.
