Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A well appointed and maintained property with spacious bedrooms and comfortable beds. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. As we are tea drinkers a set of larger mugs would be appreciated. Hope to be able to book The Old Dairy again sometime. May 2012.
  2. Excellent care from owners. Siuated on a very narrow road out of Colyton with difficulty passing other traffic but property good when you get there! April 2012.
  3. A beautiful property very well kept surroundings - our grandaughter thoroughly enjoyed feeding the Alpacas. Oct 2011.
  4. The area is very pretty and we enjoyed watching the rabbits in the field nearby, together with 3 alpacas. Horse riders also train in the lane beside the cottage - a rural idyl really. The cottage was lovely, well equipped and the owners are friendly and willing to do all they can to make your stay really fun. The individual picnic areas are private enough whilst allowing for some communication with the neighbours if required. There are plenty of eating places around with good choice. The tram into Seaton is a must - the tram stop is at Colyton Station (signposted in the village). June 2011.
