Lovely cottage, very peaceful and private in a great area for nature walks

Miss natalie b,

The best property we've been to. Clean, functional, cute, and wonderful, interesting resident hosts.

David E,

Lovely light and airy feel to this cottage and relaxing country views. Instantly felt at home here.

Mrs Valerie A,

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 P,

Great location and bigger inside then appears on the outside - bit like the Tardis. Fantastic property and brilliant owners, will recommend.

Grahame B,

A charming place. It was very quiet and lovely to see the animals so close.

Mr Robert L,
