The Dairy is a lovingly converted barn set in a gorgeous courtyard setting. We have kept the original beams and furnished with antiques sourced at local auction houses. It is an extremely roomy conversion as it can also be rented as a 4 bed. The extremely comfortable king size bed has an ensuite shower, with power and rainfall shower. There is plenty of outside space and you are welcome to borrow bicycles to explore the local area, there is also a tennis court you are welcome to use.

The space
The Dairy shares the pretty courtyard with The Potting Shed. We live across the courtyard in the main farmhouse and are on hand should you have any questions.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped with dishwasher, induction hob and fan oven, having rented many holiday homes I hope I have provided everything you may need to make your stay a enjoyable as possible.

There is a wood burning stove perfect for cosy nights in and a Smart TV with Bluetooth soundbar.
