    Beautiful rural location close to plenty of fantastic places to visit in Cornwall. The cottage is ideal for a couple getting away from it all. Would definitely go back. Thanks Jo and Mark for a wonderful weekend.

    Yet again another relaxing holiday at the Old Dairy. Everything was prepared for us on our arrival, the place is spotless, and we have a really quiet stay. Just what we needed.

    The only downside (for some an upside!!) is the poor mobile signal because of the location and the absence of internet but these are easily overcoming by driving out. The main problem with getting anywhere is that this is Cornwall and the Road system is exactly as everyone has known for years so you just get on with it! The cottage is centrally placed for most places of interest with excellent nearby visits to Truro, St Agnes, Trevaunance Cove and St Ives, not to forget the National Trust Godrevy Beach and Head.

    Had a really great holiday, Jo and Mark were happy to help if needed and are a very approachable couple. Gorgeous cottage and very tranquil and relaxing break. A good base to see everything Cornwall has to offer. Will definitely be staying at The Old Dairy again.

    A lovely cottage in a quiet location on a working farm. The hosts give a friendly welcome and then leave guests to themselves, always willing to help if needed.

    We have been before, and were pleased to return. The cottage is quiet and secluded, at the end of a farm track. For us the proximity to the National Trust beach at Chapel Porth is a big advantage, and the owners in the farm next door are very helpful and friendly. There is one good lamp in the sitting room but keen readers should probably take extra reading lights.

    Comfortable cottage in a convenient location. Owners very friendly. The Old Dairy made a good holiday base to enjoy all that Cornwall had to offer.
