Having saved the details of favourite venues from the tv programme, "Four In A Bed", we arranged to stay here for 3 nights into the New Year. We rang prior to leaving, and the lovely host, Liz, kindly agreed to let us check in early into Room 1, a lovely, large and

We had a 3 night stay here and enjoyed it so much. The Four-Poster room is well-furnished and has exposed brick and beams so it feels very authentic. The views from the breakfast room are stunning, and the property is in a picturesque setting that makes it so easy to relax.

Back again to The Old Dairy and standards still as high as ever for this once 4 in a bed winner. My son and I spent a few days here over half term catching up with friends in the area and enjoying the scenery and surrounding countryside. They are now offering evening meals too

We researched the best place to stay in the area and this came up tops. We were a little disappointed as we arrived at 4 45 and check in was not to 5 30. We stayed in the car till then despite Steve being in the courtyard but not acknowledging us until we went to check in again

Is it good location for the iron man
Hi there. The other contributor isn't correct with the mileage. It's actually about 14 miles and takes 35 to 40 minutes. All the roads around Wimbleball are small country lanes so the distance is relatively short compared to the time you need to allow. We've had many IronMan contestants stay with us and in fact this year 3 out of 4 rooms were occupied by participants and they ended up sharing the drive in the morning (all three finished by the way!). Two stayed Friday and Saturday night the others on Sunday too as they weren't sure they'd be in a fit state to drive afterwards! Feel free to call me to find out more. Thanks, Liz

"it is a quiet place and think that all the rooms are quiet as one is in the middle of the country side"
