    A beautiful location and spacious cottage with good parking and lovely outside space. Owners very pleasant and on site. As it is a working farm we enjoyed seeing the tractor go by and the animals (kept away from the cottage). It was so quiet and peaceful yet within easy reach of so many lovely beaches and attractions. The only downside was it was a mainly uphill walk of about a mile to Mount Hawke village which on a summer evening would be fine but not very good in the dark.

    A repeat visitor having found this cottage last minute last year. Really relaxing holiday and well looked after by our hosts on the farm too!

    The Old Dairy was a great place to stay during our visit to Cornwall. It was very clean and very spacious for two people. The owners were very welcoming and we couldn't haven't wanted anything more. An ideal location for a peaceful and quiet stay and away from the busy spots, although close enough to visit! Would certainly stay here again.

    This is the third time we've stayed at The Old Dairy, which is the best possible place for those who want peace and quiet and privacy. We love being on the farm, and Jo and Mark are unfailingly helpful and friendly. The cottage is well equipped, beautifully converted and extremely comfortable. It has its own patio and lovely garden and we are always reluctant to leave. It's in a part of Cornwall that we love, on the North Coast and we can't imagine staying anywhere else.

    The location was good it was peaceful and the owners just left you to enjoy your holiday which was lovely. The only downside to the property was the mattress was old and the springs were coming through so we slept on top of the duvet which wasn’t a bad thing because of the heat wave. The fridge didn’t work properly, it didn’t keep things cold enough. Overall though the Old dairy has a beautiful private garden which we really enjoyed, it was better than sitting on a very busy beach!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; The fridge dial would have needed to be turned up to allow for the unexpected heatwave. The fridge is working perfectly well. Other guests have been happy with the mattress, but it is 7 years old and we have ordered a new one.

    My wife and I arrived on the 1st of June and stayed until the 8th June 2018, we were met by the owners Mark and Jo who showed us around the property, they were so very friendly and made us very welcome, the property was spotless and everything we needed was supplied, waiting for us on the dining table was all that was needed for a nice welcoming cup of tea with a tray of biscuits, if we do return to Cornwall we will returning to The Old Dairy, thank you Mark and Jo.
