Had 5 nights in this charming cosy and well appointed cottage.wonderfully spectacular views and so quiet. You feel you are far from the maddening crowd yet the owners are just across the courtyard. They are welcoming and hospitable hosts. Close to the local inn and walks and despite the winter weather we had a great stay.
Just got back from the our 2 nights at The Old Dairy and I couldn’t reccomend it highly enough. The cottage is beautiful inside and out with stunning views. Dawn is wonderful and had everything you could possibly need in the cottage. To be quiet honest I didn’t want to leave, this place is something special and if you don’t visit after reading not only my review but all the others that tell you just how wonderful it is you are missing out on something spectacular.
Dawn the owner was lovely and very helpful upon our arrival, she gave us lots of information about the cottage and the area. The cottage was absolutely fantastic very cozy, lovely interior and done to a very high standard, everything you need was in it, the bedroom was a great size with a super king bed ( just what we are used to as we have one at home) the ensuite was brilliant and the private garden and views where stunning. A very quiet location great for a relaxing break and only a few miles away from Harrogate and Otley. We can only imagine how beautiful it must be in summer.
We rented Old Dairy Cottage for 10 days and we never wanted to leave. The location is simply breathtaking and so very peaceful. Dawn has thought of everything when it comes to outfitting the cottage, everything we needed ( and more) was in the charming cottage. Sitting outside eating breakfast in the early morning is unforgettable and the location is so central for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. A visit to McKenzie Smoke House, about 1 mile away, is a must!
Dawn catered a lovely meal for us which was such a luxury - thanks!
I think this is the fourth year I have stayed in this 'lovely haven' in January and I truly love coming here. Clearly a lot of thought and care goes into this delightful cottage which is spotlessly clean with attention to every detail. Dawn is a kind and helpful lady and nothing is too much trouble plus her cooking is absolutely delicious. It is also a perfect location to visit many attractions in this beautiful county.
A return visit for us and pleased to see that the cottage was as warm and welcoming as ever (appreciate the new sofa too). It's in a fantastic location and in our week we managed to visit Whitby, York, Harrogate and Skipton with ease. Dawn and Barry are welcoming and very helpful hosts and I recommend the Catering in the Cottage too. A home away from home and would love to head back there again!
