"Lovely cottage, lovely surrounds, lovely host…"
We had the pleasure of staying at Dairy Cottage with our 3 mth old in Sept 2014. As our first holiday as a family, it exceeded expectations. Booking was an easy pleasure and the annex itself is just lovely. Cheryl was a relaxed and generous host, making sure an age-appropriate cot, bath, toys etc were prepared in advance for our baby (plus a delicious hamper breakfast for us).
The annex is a perfect mix of warmth and luxury. There are plenty of things to do within an easy drive from the cottage - great forest walks, beaches and places to explore.
Beyond all of this, I should mention that Cheryl went above and beyond AFTER we left her cottage; helping return a Moses basket full of essential baby belongings that I managed to leave behind.... and she also managed not to laugh when I fessed up!Read moreLess
"We stayed, enjoyed it and it was very nice but…"
We stayed, enjoyed it and it was very nice but tbh not absolutely amazing.
Fantastic view from the master bedroom windows and beautiful master bedroom.
It is great to have all the kiddie gear already there - DC loved toys, bath book, bouncer.
The house is lovely with nicely styled rooms and lovely garden - really a very nice place.
The baby stuff is very well thought through.
For a property this upmarket a proper cot would have been good. It is a travel cot and I just couldn't get my baby to go down in it.
The cottage is actually quite bijou and for the price you can get more space elsewhere (though admittedly not with the lovely extra touches and baby gear).
You are semi detached with owners' cottage and share the laundry room with the owners so doesn't feel very private.
Also on the website the welcome hamper is described as locally sourced but ours contained only Waitrose stuff. I guess it was local!Read moreLess
