Feedback from some of The Dairy House all lady guests :-

"The Dairy House was just fabulous and beautifully furnished. The owner was fabulous too! He quickly delivered a working corkscrew when the one there seemed to baffle us :-/ The rooms were all lovely and everyone loved the space. The Wii was wonderful. Towels were lovely and big. Hairdryers would have been helpful. Loved the big supply of plates, bowls and glasses and the furnishings were all lovely. " (Maggie Bruce) (New hairdryers now in place)

"The Dairy House was decorated more like a boutique hotel than a holiday rental, with lovely bedding, towels laid out for our arrival and even the dining room table set. The kitchen was really well equipped, there was an unexpected "welcome pack" of essentials and the numerous bathrooms meant there was never any waiting for a shower - even with 15 girls wanting to glam up on Saturday night. We had great fun in the games rooms; the Wii dance being a particular hit. The only tiny, tiny thing was that there's no cafetiere or equivalent in the house (or we didn't find it) - which was no problem as I did actually bring one - I'm not very good without a cup of coffee in the morning. For such an amazingly well equipped house this was the only thing that wasn't there that we could possibly have wanted." (Emma Keane) (Cafetieres now in place)

"The house was absolutely gorgeous!! I was totally over whelmed with it! I couldn't fault it in anyway!!" (Dawn Stamp)

"I just wanted to say that my friends and I had a wonderful time at the Dairy House - the house itself is beautifully decorated with lovely bedding and surroundings, and we thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment facilities in the house as well, especially the pool/ping pong table. There were also a few competitive souls playing Mario Kart and Just Dance a lot of the time! It really was one of the best equipped, most attractively decorated houses I have ever stayed in, and whilst at first it seemed that being surrounded by neighbours might be a problem, it really wasn't as they are far enough away to not cause a bother to us and apparently not us to them either. Myself and everyone else who came agreed that it was an absolutely brilliant weekend in a fabulous house - I actually got a lot of compliments on my good choice of property! So thank you again, and please pass my thanks on to Ken as well, who gave a very thorough tour of the property on arrival. Oh, and the hamper that was provided was a lovely touch as well. " (Amy Catlin)
