Great conversion of an old property set in a pretty and secure garden. Spacious kitchen, comfy lounge, bed and great shower. Local village is very pretty and there are some excellent walks on the doorstep. This area of Dorset is just lovely and quite unspoilt. Thanks for a lovely stay.

An excellent and comfortable base to explore Dorset with a guaranteed friendly welcome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Dairy. The property was very comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. The accommodation also featured some interesting books and maps, which came in handy for first time visitors to the area. The peaceful location is perfect for exploring Dorset and its surroundings, or just relaxing in the garden. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful, but not intrusive. We hope to visit again in the near future.

We had a wonderful stay at The Old Dairy. Beautiful cottage, spotless, lovely decor, private. Everything you need. Enclosed garden perfect for the dog, nice patio for when the sun is out. Hosts very friendly and helpful, but not at all intrusive. Good location for touring Dorset and walking (even direct from the door). We will be back!

excellent property to stay in very well equiped and tastefully decorated felt very at home lovely to have a christmas tree and fresh flowers there when we arrived and mince pies, prossecco and a few other supplies which was a lovely touch would thoroughly recommend

The Old Dairy was really clean and comfortable and lovely and warm The welcome pack was brilliant. Scones, jam ,clotted cream, milk, tea, coffee and orange juice Very friendly welcoming owners Our dog loved the enclosed garden and long walks on our doorstep The Crown, local pub was very welcoming and dog friendly A great place to stay

Lovely property inside and out it has been renovated to a very high standard. The kitchen has every piece of equipment and gadget ever needed. The garden was really secure for the dog It is in a lovely quiet village great dog walks right from the door across the fields and to nearby villages, and really central for touring around the Dorset area. The hosts were very friendly, available if we needed them next door with great tips for local things to do without being intrusive and a lovely welcome basket of scones was much appreciated.

Beautifully appointed cottage with a lovely garden. The play area was a massive hit with our visiting grandson!

Immaculately presented holiday accommodation in a splendid location with friendly welcoming owners close by. What's not to like!

Great place to stay, everything we needed and much more. Great location for visiting different places in the area. Hosts were really friendly. Tea and cake etc. was waiting for us when we arrived, which was nice. Our Westie really enjoyed the enclosed garden. Couldn’t have asked for anything more!

We had a lovely holiday in the old dairy. The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. The barn had everything you need for cooking inside and out. Lovely garden to relax in. Perfect place for families and dogs. Plenty of walks nearby. Short drive to Blandford, and lots of lovely places to eat out. Thoroughly recommended.

We had a lovely time at The Old Dairy. The property is newly renovated so lots of new mod cons. Really handy to have the washing machine and drier after a day at the beach. The pub being a 2 minute stroll away was also really handy but make sure to book in these Covid times. Our hosts were very helpful with Peter recommending some really nice walks as we brought our dog with us. We would definitely recommend this as a great base to explore Dorset.

We were the 3rd people in this property so was all brand new, my partner says the former Dairy was the cream on the top.
