A wonderful week in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent customer service with all my pre holiday questions answered promptly. The property was spotlessly clean and well maintained throughout. It met our needs, including 6 month old baby, very well.

Conveniently placed for trips out to Bigbury and Burgh Island, Kingsbridge, Torcross and Dartmouth, our week just seemed to fly by.

I will certainly want to return to this very comfortable and charming property and have already recommended it to friends.

Thank you Kevin.

Peaceful and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

We chose The Old Dairy for a week long stay with family, the room configuration was ideal for 3 couples and 2 small children. Everything has been thought of, we had Sky TV, 2 games consoles, board games, towels, bedding, high chair, travel cot and more.

The facilities are immaculately clean and tidy, the surroundings are beautifully peaceful and the house itself is charming and quirky. Kevin's faultless communication was excellent in the months leading up to our stay, any questions were quickly answered and our security deposit was returned promptly in full.

We would like to return to The Old Dairy as soon as funds allow! Thank you!

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with beautiful decor. My friends and I were staying in Devon for a wedding on the 11th and were in love with the place. The weather on the wedding day was exceptional and we couldn't ask for more. Definitely would come back again to the Old Dairy if or when we return to this part of Devon.

Many Thanks to the owner once again.

Delightful spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and loved the spacious and well equipped layout of the cottage - lots of little extras provided. All the rooms were tastefully decorated bringing together the old and the new. We particularly enjoyed the garden and all the chirping birds.

Would recommend the Oyster Shack, nor Bigbury, for an entertaining dining experience.

Lots of day trips out to; Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Burgh Island and Hope Cove.

We would highly recommend the cottage for a relaxing holiday.

Map

Coast/Beach:

There are numerous beaches close by - the closest being Bigbury on Sea. This is very child friendly with shallow sea and fine sandy beach. Across the beach is Burgh Island where the legendary Burgh Island Hotel is located along with the historical Pilchard Inn. The island is cut off when the tide comes in but the island can still be reached using the Sea Tractor -great fun for kids.

There is a car park, toilets with showers and the Venus Café offering organic produce - including local pasties!

Distances:

Nearest airport is Exeter - around 40 minutes away.

Nearest station - Totnes - 13 miles

Car is essential!

Further Details:

Also provided are 2 portable stair gates, high chair and child's travel cot - no bedding.
