The house is beautiful, I’ve never seen such a fully equipped kitchen in a rental property and you won’t want for anything here. It’s a very spacious well thought out home and the garden is fully enclosed so perfect for travelling with a dog. The only issue we had - though sadly one that marred our weekend and would stop us returning - was parking. It’s advertised as parking for 2 cars. The email with the instructions you receive the week before then says parking for 2 ‘medium’ sized cars and if they don’t fit in the garage then there is plenty of on street parking or a free car park nearby. Neither of our cars fit in the garage, there wasn’t room on the street and the ‘car park’ is a section of field in front of the village hall (which fills up in the daytime). Arriving on a Friday evening there is no outside lighting and the car park - albeit is a 4/5 minute walk - that’s down a country lane with no lights or pavement. We managed to get one in the car park and the other left us with an altercation with a neighbour who told us that technically we were on their land (but didn’t need us to move as we weren’t causing an obstruction and they were going away anyway). With a 10 month old baby this just made things difficult and uncomfortable and sadly tainted our weekend.

Thank you Jamie-Lee for your review of The Old Dairy. We are delighted you found the property to be beautiful, well equipped and spacious. We are sorry to hear that you experienced an issue with the parking at the property. We do hope that you will be back to stay in the Cotswolds again soon!

We loved our stay at this gorgeous cottage. The location was perfect for us to visit our favourite places. The village is second to none ! The cottage has everything you need & Jo is on hand if you have any problems. I would say a few things need updating particularly the bed linen but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. We have booked again for next year & look forward to it very much .

Thank you for your lovely review on The Old Dairy. We are delighted you have enjoyed your stay and the cottage has everything you need. We look forward to welcoming you back next year!

Everything about this property impressed. It is situated in a lovely peaceful village with little passing traffic. The instructions for entry were simple and clear and when we got in, the Old Dairy was really beautifully furnished and equipped. It was warm and welcoming, spacious and comfortable, and furnished in impeccable taste. . The living room had comfortable sofas and plentiful seating, with a log fire which we didn’t need to light as the whole property was warm and cosy. We found everything we could have possibly needed in the kitchen, again with lots of seating and a view out into the garden. Everywhere was really clean and well maintained. The bathrooms were well designed and there was constant and plentiful hot water. We were out most days, but we were really pleased to get back to this beautiful and comfortable property. All in all, we were really delighted with our stay.

Thank you for your lovely 5-star review on The Old Dairy. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and the property was up to standard. We hope to welcome you back again soon!!
