We had a lovely week at dairy cottages. The house was generally clean and in good condition. The location in many ways is great as its central for visiting lots of places. The only downside was the main road outside with no pathway so to walk our dog we had to get in the car first. We would definitely visit again despite this

What a fabulous place to stay! The big barn is beautiful to be in and my friends and myself had the best time. It's definitely a place for socialising as the space is so open and so comfy, plenty of space for 8 people. All of the bedrooms were stunning so it was hard to chose the best one. A few of the group went on a cycle around the local area anRead mored met the rest of us in Wimbourne which is about a 15 minute drive. We went back out to the Olive tree and enjoyed a delicious meal with fab staff. Hide
