Wedding anniversary holiday
We just love this rural cottage for two it's a perfect romantic getaway. We've booked it for three years and just rebooked again for next year. Lovely peaceful surroundings,plenty of relaxing walks and lots of historic sights to see around the area. In the cottage there is plenty of leaflets to browse for tourists information.Then you've got the relaxing hot tub in the evening after your days out which is lovely and romantic under the stars.We had a surprise this year as the owner had put in a gorgeous Victorian bath and had put wooden paneling in the bedroom / living room which made it feel warmer and very cosy.The cottage is always very clean and warm when we arrive after the long drive there.The owners always ask if everything is fine when you see them couldn't ask for better hosts definitely recommend their cottages to friends,family or anyone else.

A beautiful cottage
We have just returned from a week in this cottage and found it to be everything we expected. It was well appointed, warm and cosy and with all the touches that made it a home from home. Would most certainly recommend it as the perfect retreat for two! The welcome pack was very thoughtful - homemade cake and bread and a bottle of wine. We loved it.

The whole holiday experience from arriving at the property to departing was fantastic. The four poster bed was large and comfy and the living area was cosy, all in all it could not have been better. The dogs were well catered for as well, with pleasant walks close by and even a bit of swimming. We would all go back again, thank you.

The Old Dairy is a small cottage that suits 2 people down to the ground. The cottage had everything we needed to use in the kitchen to cook an evening meal. Location is perfect for Durham and the Yorkshire Dales which we enjoyed visiting. The local people were friendly.
Ms Copson

The cottage was very cosy and tastefully restored with a wonderful, cosy lounge and well kitted out kitchen. The bedroom was a very good size and the bed was very comfy. I especially loved the enclosed patio area ideal to let the dogs out first thing in the morning. I would imagine in the Summer months it is lovely to sit out with a glass of vino. The Old Dairy is situated next door to a very nice local pub and a great butcher. The village itself is beautiful with a massive village green and minutes walk to the riverside walks. I will be recommending to everyone and hope to come back soon.
