Lovely light and airy feel to this cottage and relaxing country views. Instantly felt at home here.Mrs Valerie Alway - 19th November 2018
we wished we had booked 2 weeks as it was such a lovely cottage, we both agreed its the best one we have stayed in in 7 years of cottage holidays ( since I have been in the wheelchair) We have stayed in quite a few cottages over the last 7 years ( since I have been in a wheelchair) with various other companies and Dairy Cottage was the first one with Best of Brighton/Original cottages. My husband and I both agreed this was the best cottage by far for both facilities and comfort. Owners were very pleasant. We would recommend your company to anyone as the lady was more than helpful on the phone.Mr Barry Payne - 1st October 2018
