week away.
Stayed in this converted barn for a week with my mate, was great very clean and cosy. The only thing was the Hot tub was not with the barn and you had to share it with about 6/7other cottages and pay about £40 a week to use it. But other than that was a fantastic place to stay would stay again.

Great family holiday.
We have just returned home from a wonderful family holiday at The Dairy. The cottage is beautiful and spacious with high ceilings and original beams. There is a woodburner that was ready laid, though due to excellent weather was not required. The location is perfect for exploring the Lakes, West Coast and North of the border. Lots of parking spaces and sheep just feet away. Highly recommended.

Just got back had a lovely relaxing few days away. The Dairy is a beautiful cottage the owner was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The cottage was lovely, living and kitchen area much bigger than the pictures showed. It is an ideal place for walking with the dog. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. There is a shared use of hot tub to relax in. We hope to go back later in the year.

Fantastic location to get out walking with the dog. Ideally situated to explore Northumberland, north Pennines, the north lakes and Scotland. The owner is very friendly and knowledgable about where to visit and was happy to help when we ran out of firewood (?4 charge per additional bag of logs). The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped which made it feel very homely. There is a £40 charge per week for use of the shared hot tub which me and my boyfriend were initially more than to pay as we knew we would be doing lots of walking and it would be a great way to relax after a day out on our feet. However we discovered that very few of the jets actually work and the ones that do work don't seem to be working correctly. We only ended up using the hot tub twice and we felt that at £40 a week, better maintenance of the hot tub wouldn't be too much of an ask. The only other slight annoyance would be that in the ceiling above the main bedroom, there is something nesting in the roof - we were unsure if birds or mice but whatever they were they make a terrible racket early in the morning. This wasn't too much of a problem as we got up early most days anyway but on the couple of days we wanted a lie in (we were on holiday after all!) this was made almost impossible by the noise they were making. Overall we had a brilliant week and we would stay on this site again (albeit in a different cottage and we would leave the hot tub!)
