This is a nice, cosy cottage in a peaceful location with everything you need. The cottage owners were really nice and also very helpful. The log burner was great. We had a nice relaxing break and would consider returning again in the future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our break away with our border collies. Not only was the cottage exceptional, but our hosts were friendly, welcoming and couldn't do any more for us. It is definitely a place that we look forward to visiting again.

What a great six days we had. The cottage was lovely, well equipped and cosy - just what we wanted. The owners were very welcoming, helping us with everything from where to go on walks, to where to find everything in the cottage and surrounding areas, as well as recommending places to eat. The local area is beautiful. We would definitely recommend this cottage. Thank you for a lovely time!

The Dairy was in an ideal location. The property had everything needed for a very pleasant stay, immaculately presented. An ideal base to explore from or just to stay in and enjoy.

Staying at The Dairy made the holiday for us. The Dairy itself was ideal, being very comfortable, clean and well equipped, all of which made our holiday so much more enjoyable. The very lovely enclosed rear garden was a huge bonus for us and our boxer dog Jack, and as the cottage was nicely tucked away some distance from the main road, it provided for us a superbly peaceful retreat. We would highly recommend.

A lovely location and beautiful countryside. The owners were so very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was very cosy, and the wood burning stove was lovely on the chilly evenings. There was lots of beautiful scenery to explore and Appleby is a lovely town, the people very friendly. The local pub is 50 yards away, and very friendly.

A very relaxing holiday. The cottage is lovely and you have the owners on hand living next door. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their knowledge of the area was invaluable. A 10/10 holiday.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The owners are very hospitable friendly, nothing was too much trouble, we were made to feel very welcome. Very dog-friendly. An easy reach from the motorway yet central to beautiful countryside National Parks including the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Hadrians Wall etc.

This cottage was fabulous in every way. The owners were helpful and full of information. The location is great with plenty of lovely walks on its doorstep. Wont hesitate to return, all in all a wonderful holiday.

The owners welcomed us and gave us any information that we required. They explained where it was safe to walk our dog, and we had the benefit of an enclosed garden where the dog was safe. There was nothing that we didn't like, it was a truly lovely experience and we'd have no hesitation in recommending it to friends.

We found The Dairy very comfortable and very well equipped. The enclosed garden was good for our dog to run around, he loved it. The owners made us feel welcome and were very helpful. The cottage is also well situated for exploring York and the Lake District.

My boyfriend and I, and our dog Penny, had a lovely stay at The Dairy. The owners are such lovely people and you can really tell they have put a lot of thought into the property. The Royal Oak pub in Appleby is worth a visit as you can take your dog in(the food is lovely) and they even have a menu for dogs(Penny thoroughly enjoyed a doggy burger!). I would certainly recommend a stay at The Dairy.
