Weekend stay
Was a nice cottage to stay at. Few thing would like to point out is that parking was quite small also the cottage could had done with a bit of a spring clean few cobwebs but suppose it's the country side. Overall very nice place and also the host is very friendly and helpful had a good time.

The old dairy - very nice base for exploring Dorset
We stayed at the Old dairy for a week in May. The cottage has all mod cons and was a lovely place to come back to after a day exploring the Dorset countryside. Dewlish is a quaint village and the old dairy is located next to the road leading out of the village. There is only one negative I would say for the property, the car parking area. The shingled parking area is steeply angled and every time the car was driven out into the road from the old dairy or reversed into the area, the front of the car scraped on the road surface causing damage to the lower part of the car. The people in the farm directly opposite stated that this happens with everyone that stays at the old dairy. Would happily stay again at the old dairy if remedial work was carried out on the driveway access.

A beautiful olde worlde cottage with plenty of storage space, deceptively so in the kitchen. It is well placed to explore the Jurassic coast and also inland. Would recommend this cottage for a family of three. Just perfect.

We loved the peace and tranquillity of The Old Dairy. Lovely quiet village with almost no traffic, just tractors. Only Farm and birdlife sounds and within easy reach of coast. Wonderful just wonderful.
Mrs Jones

A fantastic cottage which more then lived up to its blurb. Dewlish is a place to turn up, switch off and soak in real country living for a week or six. To be surrounded by real working farms and people is a real tonic from the rat race and The Old Dairy fits in perfectly with this. We really did not want to leave.
