Nestled in the Teign Valley between Dartmoor and Exeter, The Old Dairy is a spacious open plan, self-catering riverside apartment in a newly converted former dairy. The Old Dairy is a romantic getaway, a place to unwind and relax, to absorb the view and watch the wildlife.

The space
On the edge of Dartmoor National Park, The Old Dairy has been tastefully decorated in a modern rustic style and is part of a small hamlet of converted agricultural and mill buildings. Accommodation is for two people and includes a king-size bed, a modern shower room, fully equipped kitchen/dining area and a lounge area with a TV/Blu-ray and a cosy log burner. French windows look directly onto the River Teign and the Dunsford Stepping Stones: a public right of way leading to numerous footpaths winding through the medieval Bridford Wood and beyond.

Guest access
Access is via your own front door and the key is available from the nearby keysafe. You have The Old Dairy completely to yourself to come and go as you please. We are happy to share the garden and seating places if you need some "outside time".

During your stay
Your hosts, Barrie and Mark, live in the adjacent Mill Barn. They would aim to greet you upon arrival with complimentary afternoon tea and homemade cakes, or if later a glass of something stronger! If you need any information or assistance just knock on the door or call one of their mobiles.

The kitchen will be stocked with basics such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, olive oil etc. You are welcome to help yourself to fresh herbs from the garden. Barrie and Mark will provide a selection of groceries including homemade bread, homemade jam or marmalade, eggs and butter which should provide you with breakfast on your first morning. On arrival, you will also find a bottle of white wine chilled in the fridge (please let us know if you’d prefer red!). Hand and body wash, towels and bed-linen are also supplied.

You are welcome to share Barrie and Mark’s small garden and seating areas, where you can relax with a glass of wine or a good book. You may prefer to take a camera or a sketch book over the stepping stones and meander through the woods or along the riverside.
