We needed to find a place convenient to Southampton, as we were to meet a cruise ship early on Saturday morning. I found The Dairy online and called to see if they had a family room, which they did. We stayed in the Ayrshire Suite, which had a King sized bed, a couch that pulled out into a double bed and a single bed and easily accomodated the 4 of us.
The room was large, clean, bright and airy and had an ensuite bath. Our room had a door that opened to the gardens in the back. The kids enjoyed running around, jumping on the trampoline and swimming in the pool (despite the cold). The breakfast buffet was delicious.
Mike, the owner, was incredibly friendly and helpful. He pointed us to a decent family friendly pub, but also suggested a local take-away where we could purchase some food and bring it back to eat poolside.
If we are in the area again, this will be our first choice of place to stay. It's everything you want in a B&B, friendly, comfortable, clean and in a beautiful location. We all enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B to friends & family.
