The Dairy is a great space for two - whether it's a romantic get away for a couple, a chic retreat for friends or an inter-generational time out in the country.

Once the farm's milking parlour and retaining the original beams and vaulted ceilings, it's now an open plan loft-style barn conversion comprising some 60 square metres. One wall is almost entirely glass, making it a light and airy space.

On the ground floor and all on one level internally, it's especially suitable for people with limited mobility.

The Bedroom area has a super king size (6ft wide) bed, wardrobe, dressing table and chair, chest of drawers, mirror, clock radio with bluetooth and Apple Lightning dock, and hairdryer. The bed can be made up as a twin with two single (3ft wide) beds if requested.

The Living area has two substantial leather sofas, a large digital TV with Freeview tuner, and a Bluray/DVD player. There's also a dining table with four chairs.

The fully equipped Kitchen includes an oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, cafetiere and fridge/freezer, as well as all the cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery you are likely to need during your stay.

The Bathroom has bath, hand basin and toilet and a separate luxury shower with body jets.

Outside, the Dairy has its own small patio, including table and chairs, with a view across the courtyard towards the farmhouse.

Free wi-fi is provided subject to usage conditions - please note this is a rural area and speeds are restricted so the connection is not suitable for live gaming or streaming.

There's use of a shared washing machine and tumble dryer, iron and ironing board as well as onsite parking and secure storage for bikes if required.

Bed linen and towels are provided, along with a welcome pack containing initial supplies of groceries and toiletries. If you're not sure whether you need to bring it with you, just ask.

Important - The bed will be made up as a double unless you request it is made up as a twin in advance. It is not possible to change it once you have arrived.

Wonderful week in the most beautiful location. The Dairy is just perfect, best ever accommodation and such a warm welcome when we arrived.

Sandra and Peter, Kent, 

Probably the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in! Peaceful and beautiful surroundings too.

Dave & Anne, Suffolk, 

A lovely comfortable property, a beautiful relaxing place to stay and so convenient for visiting the Cotswolds.

Nigel and Lindsay, Cheshire, 

Luxurious accommodation, beautiful Cotswold villages and good weather. How lucky are we? A real find, we'll be back soon.

Sue and Tom, Oxon, 

Fabulous accommodation, we would give you 6 stars! Enjoyed our week so much, so peaceful. We hope to come back.

Rosemary and Richard, Cornwall, 

Superb accommodation. One of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in and equally matched but the kindness and warmth of our hosts! Many, many thanks.

Rodney & Christine, St Austell, 

A wonderful retreat away from the world. Alison & Gary are lovely people and we've already booked again for next year!

Peter & Becky, Norfolk, 

This has been our second visit to the Diary and we have loved every moment. We love the relaxed environment and peaceful setting. Thank you for having us and we look forward to coming back soon!

Steve and Minal, Leicester, 

We loved our stay. An excellent location, so quiet and yet so convenient for Stratford and Oxford. In our brief stay we spotted a fox, a large hawk and a deer. Thanks so much.

Paddy and Kate, Yorkshire, 

A lovely, light, clean comfortable 'cottage' with welcoming generous hosts. A real treat to hear skylarks in peaceful relaxing surroundings.

John and Elissa, Pembrokeshire, 

Perfect stay at the Dairy for 10 days. Gracious hosts. So much to see all around the area. Thank you.

Russ and Sue, Niagara Falls, 

There's nothing original left to say! We have loved having the Dairy as our temporary home for a few days whilst visiting relatives, seeing Cymbeline at the RSC and going on a bread making course in Tiddington. It looked good from the online photos but the reality far surpassed our expectations.

Fiona and Alan, Abingdon, 

Wonderfull weekend, excellent accommodation, we will be back again. Marks out of 10 = 11!!

Peter and Gill, Swansea, 

Our stay in the Dairy will stay with us as a most beautiful and relaxing part of our journey. I'll visit here often in my memories...

Sarah and Eva, California, 

Such a beautiful place! Clean, tidy, relaxing, the list goes on! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Will more than likely return to celebrate a year of engagement (he proposed on our stay!!). Thank you !

Holly and Martin, New Quay, 

An imaginative conversion very well appointed and maintained. A really lovely place to stay with every comfort in a peaceful setting.

Jo & Roger, London, 

Lovely relaxing stay in the luxury of the Dairy. The cottage made a fabulous base for exploring and we will definitely be recommending and returning! Thank you!

Amy & Rob, Exeter, 

Really enjoyed our stay in the Dairy which is very comfortable & well equipped. Much appreciated the welcome pack. Loved the area especially Hidcote Manor Gardens - a gem.

Judith & Ian, Colchester, 


Quiet as you like, down a blink-and-you'll-miss-it gravel driveway, this was one of the most peaceful weeks away we've ever known. Idyllic location, but you'll need to rely heavily on the car to get anywhere-even a quick blast to the nearest shop for a couple of bits could be half an hour or so. That said, the local roads are a hoot so it's no big chore if you're comfortable behind the wheel!

Alison & Gary are great hosts, warm and welcoming on our arrival. Nice touches included some basics in the fridge to get us started, and a bottle of something cold for later on in the day!

The Dairy is a deceptively large space, though it only sleeps 2. Larger groups can block book as there are 2 further properties attached.

Great quality to the room, nicely furnished & finished (bed was really comfy & the shower's superb), we'll definitely be returning. Recommended...

Ian and Tina, 

First class accommodation, quite the best we have stayed in so far! No need to travel very far to enjoy this lovely location.

Robert & Val, Poole, 

A fabulous stay. Beautiful accommodation and serene and stunning grounds. Wonderful, warm and welcoming hosts. Thank you for a perfect stay. Cant wait to come again.

Lucy & Matt, London, 

Perfect accommodation and grounds. Your attention to detail and hard work in creating the Dairy is appreciated. Fabulous location for exploring the Cotswolds, everything was on our doorstep. Thank you for being wonderful hosts. Hope to return!

Louise & Graham, Carlisle, 

We've had a wonderful relaxing break in the Dairy, just what we needed and the perfect Easter escape! The accommodation is gorgeous and everything you need and the location is excellent. Cant recommend it enough. We'll be back soon.

James & Claire, London, 

Perfect for the Xmas break … when we can we move in …?!?

Dave & Victoria,
