A kid friendly gem in a fantastic location!!! Can't wait to visit again :)

5 of 5
We stayed at the Old Dairy after a recommendation from a friend, and we were not disappointed! Kate and Kevin were such lovely hosts, and made sure the accommodation had everything we needed for our mini holiday. The cottage is set within the grounds of their farm, with chickens, ducks and a pig nearby which provided no end of excitement for our toddler. Inside, the cottage is equipped with everything you'd need for a break with a toddler and/or baby, including stair gate, high chair, black out blind, travel cot, kid-friendly dishes/cutlery, and toys!! The bedrooms were lovely and quiet, so everyone was able to sleep well before our daytime adventures. We were within easy access to everything we'd hoped to visit during our stay, including Porthcurno Beach, Kynance Cove, St Michael's Mount, Falmouth and Porthleven. We will absolutely be staying at the Old Dairy again - somehow Kate and Kevin have truly taken the stress out of travelling with a toddler and a baby!

Beautiful cottage and great location.

5 of 5
The cottage was ideal for the two of us and our Labrador. Well furnished and equipped with everything we needed. Jo dealt with the booking quickly and efficiently and all was ready for us including a few essentials like milk, tea and coffee and the wood burner ready to light with a starter supply of logs and kindling. The location is ideal for trips to all areas of S and SW Cornwall with Porthleven just a short trip away. We were lucky to have great weather in October but the cottage would be very comfortable winter or summer. Would recommend it as a great cosy hideaway for a young or old couple and very dog friendly (including the local pub at Breage!).
