Outstanding from Start to end. Everything 5 Star. Could not ask for more.
Mr Jadeja April 2019
It would be good to have had some quality things in the Cottage and more clear windows downstairs as 2 of them were frosted

Thanks for sharing your thoughts - the lower windows have had a different finish applied to allow in plenty of light but also to ensure privacy for guests and for the owners who live on site. There are standard clear pane windows everywhere else in the barn, but we think the owners have found a really good solution to keep the property light and bright, whilst helping guests feel very comfortable and private.

Cosy cottage that will give you a great base from which to explore the local countryside
Mrs McIntosh June 2018
Great country location near Shaftesbury and good area to explore with National Trust properties Monacute, Kingston Lacy and Stourhead nearby. Lovely comfortable character cottage to return to at end of day with well equipped kitchen. With attention to detail welcoming fresh flowers and delicious homemade cake.

Dairyman cottage was a lovely clean, well equipped cosy retreat for our short stay in shaftesbury. It was ideally situated and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. We particularly enjoyed the welcome tray of tea and yummy brownies, thank you Clive and wendy

Welcoming hosts. Lovely, fully equipped cottage with a luxurious feel to it. Both our child and our selves took great pleasure in spending time with the birds!

Clean, comfortable, well equipped cosy cottage, super location. Enjoyed the wildlife around including chickens and guinea fowl visiting for snippets each day. Spotted deer in the lanes when walking and driving. Central to lots of places of interest.

Mr Goodliffe September 2016
The most comfortable, homely and welcoming holiday property that we have ever stayed at.
The care and attention taken by the owners was quite exemplary
Mr Heller August 2016
The cottage was lovely, the location was great and the owners were very nice even when our 2 year old had an accident while in bed. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to get away from it all and be in the middle of the fields with chickens outside your door waiting for crumbs in the morning. We all had a fantastic holiday

Beautiful cottage, the pictures don't do the cottage justice. Delightful welcome with homemade cake and Easter eggs for the kids. Great location with so many things to do within an hours drive and great places to eat for the family on your doorstep. Cannot wait to go back!

A lovely short stay at the Dairyman's Cottage- a fresh baked cake welcomed us to a cosy cottage, as well as a field of sheep and Guinea fowl and hens running around much to the delight of our toddler. A very comfortable stay with easy access to a number of sights, close to the lovely little Shaftesbury and a further drive to Corfe, Swanage and Salisbury. A perfect holiday for a little family and great value for money- would highly recommend and no doubt will go back again.
Mr Field September 2015
A superb base from which to explore this delightful part of the country.
Mr Laverack July 2015
An ideal place to stay if you want to explore Dorset, Wiltshire, Bath and Somerset. The cottage has a spacious open-plan ground floor and two good size rooms upstairs. As a family of 2 adults and 3 children we really enjoyed staying at the cottage and although we didn't meet the owners the cake and tea they provided was most welcome!
Mrs Barrett July 2015
The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It's much bigger than it looks in the pictures! We had a lovely week, it's a great base to explore the area.
Mrs Bryant May 2015
A lovely cottage deep in the Dorset countryside surrounded by beautiful views. There is so much to see and do in the area, we wish we could have stayed longer.
Ms Nakhooda May 2015
Really good stay at the Dairyman's cottage - its a lovely barn renovation in a beautiful part of Dorset, close to some great woods and walks.
Mrs Kay March 2015
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely, comfortable cottage and would certainly consider staying again.
Miss Allmond November 2014
A beautiful bolt-hole in a fantastic part of the country ideally located for several historic towns and even close enough for a day trip to the coast. We thoroughly enjoyed the restful surroundings and the open fire. The owners were attentive without being intrusive and we really can't wait to go back to Dairyman's Cottage and the ducks ha ha!!
Mr Webb April 2014
Lovely cottage in a beautiful country setting. Chickens to feed and sheep to see out of your bedroom window.
