“Superb hideaway in the Dales”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My friend and I booked a week in the Old Dairy Cottage and it definitely exceeded our high expectations.
The cottage itself is in beautiful surroundings and the local town Otley is handily located for essentials. It was as rural as we had hoped for so that the only sounds that we could hear were the winds across the Dales and the cracking of the woodburning stove.
The cottage is tastefully decorated and we appreciated the Sky box for when the October/November weather kicked in.
Would definitely recommend especially for the warm and friendly owners Dawn and Barry who were efficient and helpful. The catering in the cottage is highly recommended as the food was marvellous and reasonably priced.
We found the cottage perfectly located for Harrogate and York day trips (use the park and ride for the latter) and hope to return another time.

“Beautiful Cottage in a Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed in the Old Dairy Cottage for one week in September. The owners, Dawn and Barry live next door to the property which is very helpful should any problems arise, not that any did! They are a very welcoming couple whom you feel at ease with as soon as you arrive.

The cottage is close to the towns of Harrogate, Otley, Ilkley, Ripon and Skipton. Also, York is only an hour away so it is ideally situated for exploring what these towns have to offer. The surrounding countryside is breathtakingly stunning with views that rival many of the places that we have visited in other parts of the UK and Europe.

The cottage itself is well kitted out and has all that you require for your stay and is immaculately clean. Our only criticism is that the kitchen area is short of workspace but there is a Butchers trolley to help alleviate the problem.

We will have no hesitation in recommending the Old Dairy Cottage to friends and family.
