Warm and cosy cottage, very well equipped and in great position to explore the surrounding area, including Stratford upon Avon. Great for dog walking and most eateries allowed the dog. so great for us all.

The cottage has been beautifully converted with top quality furnishings. It is really warm and cosy if the weather is not so good. The enclosed garden is great of you have a dog. The owners live in the farmhouse but leave you alone to enjoy your time at the cottage. The surrounding area is lovely especially if you like walking.

A lovely property in a quiet location, about a mile from the town of Lechlade. Ideally placed for either Oxford or Swindon, and of course the surrounding Cotswold villages. Plenty of pubs serving good food just a short drive away.

What a lovely cottage, spent our 40th wedding anniversary there, had a great week. Lovely and peaceful. Just a 20 minute walk into Lechlade. Totally dog friendly even though we didnt take a dog, as we sadly lost our beloved Sasha a few months ago. Owners were there if needed, but left us alone otherwise.

Reviewed by Debbie 21st September 2019

Just returned from a very relaxing holiday at the Old Dairy. The place was clean and comfortable everything you need for a self catering holiday. No DVD player though. Great hosts but not intrusive. In a lovely quiet secluded location on a farm, down a farm track. Fully enclosed gravel area for our dogs to roam and the car was secure too. Shop at sRead moreervice station nearby. We had our food delivered by ASDA who had no problem finding us. Booked to return next year. Hide
