The Old Dairy is a fantastic choice. Cottage itself - beautiful and also containing everything you could possibly need. Very secluded. Wonderful views and even friendly local sheep and chickens! Great shower facilities and luxurious bedding. Location - beautiful part of the world. Secluded location but also close to key amenities (for example a local and well appointed post office).... more
