Step into the lovely living area of The Old Dairy, perfectly designed with gorgeous, beamed ceilings to compliment the leather furniture, adding a rustic feel to this stunning cottage. Whether you want to curl up on comfy sofas and watch your favourite show on the smart TV (complete with Netflix!) or sit up on the dining table, there are plenty of lovely spaces to relax here at The Old Dairy.
Head into the well equipped kitchen when you’re getting peckish, a well-designed area with a lovely, coloured tile design on the walls. You can try something new or stick to an old family favourite; either way, you can take the opportunity to create plenty of delicious meals to enjoy as a family at the wooden dining table. Or take your meal outside on a bright day; the front and rear gardens are equipped with garden furniture and are beautiful places to relax and catch up under the sun.
When you’re ready to catch some beauty sleep, then there are two lovely bedrooms to choose from; the kingsize room is a luxurious space, where you can relax under the beamed ceilings and lie in on a slow sunny morning, enjoying trails of sunlight through the curtains. Or the twin bedroom is a unique space with comfy beds perfect for a dreamy night’s sleep. The bathroom has a shower over a bath, so you can pick from a quick refresh in the shower or a soothing hot bath. There is also a separate laundry room available complete with a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, oven, hob, as well as an extra shower and toilet, so there’s really all you could need!
