The owners were very welcoming and made us feel at home from the start. Cottage was lovely and there was a home made cake and fresh eggs waiting for us - great touch. Kitchen had all the necessary equipment, including a cafetiere!! Countryside is stunning, lovely walks on the doorstep, and we were allowed to help with the lambs on the farm. All in all a very good experience.

The cottage was very comfortable, in an ideal location for the peace and quiet we desired. The cottage was a welcoming sight after a day out sightseeing. The owners and the property were absolutely brilliant. We will definitely return! Also, we highly recommend The Old Dairy to our family, friends and anyone who will listen.

The owners were extremely friendly, kind and accommodating, and really made our stay enjoyable. They were also very helpful with advising and recommending local attractions and amenities, and they had a very detailed information pack regarding the cottage and local services. The farm was great, and it was lovely that we could get involved with the animals. The scenery and surrounding areas were picturesque. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

The owners and their daughters were most welcoming on our arrival and throughout our holidays they were helpful and friendly. We enjoyed helping a little with the farm animals, along with the peace of the surrounding countryside. The cottage was comfortable, away from the activity of people and traffic, yet afforded easy access to all of the Peak District attractions.

The friendly welcome and the location. The cottage was beautiful and we could have fresh eggs daily off the owners chickens. The walks were stunning as were the views. It could not have been a better holiday or cottage to stay in. We will be returning!

The owners were very welcoming. We enjoyed watching the free range hens and eating their eggs! The owners were quick to assist us with any queries we had and they provided us with plenty of fire wood for the log burner. Double bed in the main bedroom was very comfy. Great location for exploring the Dales!

Had a wonderful long weekend. 4 adults easily accommodated. It was comfortable, warm and well equipped. We enjoyed the log fire (there is a starter pack but we took some of our own logs and bought some more reasonably priced from the cottage owners). There is only one bathroom but we didn't find it a problem, there was plenty of hot water. The owners are very welcoming and helpful; eggs and a delicious lemon drizzle cake to greet us were a lovely touch. Some great walks on the doorstep and plenty to see and do even in November. Also dof friendly cottage with plenty of dog friendly pubs nearby.

Gorgeous cottage in wonderful surroundings, lovely warm welcome from the owner and a homemade cake awaiting our arrival. The cottage was clean & fresh and had everything we needed. Friendly chickens on the doorstep every morning added to our enjoyment Good spot for travelling around, Alton Towers is about 20 minute drive! Our only gripe and not the owners fault, no mobile phone signal & our sat nav couldn't find us either! A future lesson learnt buy a map! Would highly recommend

There is loads to see and do in the vicinity with lots of information available and walking is easy from the door ... including to the local pub a few minutes away! Many thanks - we have had a great time!!

We decided to co away for the week at Easter the weather was extremely cold they had been cut off the week preciously but we were welcomed and nothing was too much trouble and being on a small farm was wonderful at lambing time.
August 2013
On arrival, made very welcome by owners. Nice cottage. Beautiful location. Lambs in a pen opposite so sweet. Our daughter bottle fed them and helped out with some chores too. She loved it. Cottage sleeps 4 adults with ease. Sofa bed or camp bed for kids. Kitchen small but ideal for preparing meals as everything available. Loved it. Lambs, sheep, chickens, baby ducks all great to watch. Walks from the door to local beautiful areas. Wow!! So lucky. Parking great. Real fire was a bonus. Nice touch with the starter pack. Even chilly in June, so it was made use of. Extra wood available for purchase. Thank you ever so much to the Bacons for a great holiday. We will I am sure be back to chill again.
April 2013
an excellent stay -really friendly and helpful owners-and real character in the old dairy--the fresh laid eggs were a real bonus--definitely intending to book again
May 2013
A warm welcome met us on arrival with fresh eggs in the kitchen and tea and coffee available. The fireplace was well stocked and we couldn't wait to light a real fire. Our small Jack Russell was curious about the chickens but did not see them as food! With walks from the doorstep we had no trouble finding plenty to do. There was even a recently bought DVD of 'Skyfall' which we enjoyed one evening. Nearby village of Hartington is a must visit and the local pub had a roaring fire and welcomed dogs! Although it was a very cold week with the purchase of extra thermals the weather didn't spoil our break. It was a fabulous little cottage with all the necessities. We will be revisiting again soon.

The cottage is well-equipped, they seem to have thought of everything. It was cosy and soon felt like 'home'. The views were just beautiful and it was so quiet. We loved the chickens who greeted us in the morning and were always on hand for our scraps. There were rabbits, a lot of them babies, and we were really lucky to see a Woodpecker on the bird feeder. We were sad to leave.
