Delights of the Dairy!
My friend and I had a delightful 4 day stay in a cottage, (once a dairy) separate from the main house. It had 2 large beds (one sofa bed) and a small well equipped kitchen and roomy shower. Outside were an array of animals: dogs, donkeys, emus, sheep (including 3 black ones!) and chickens. They all provided great entertainment! Andrea was a charming hostess, happy to talk and very communicative, without being overpowering. We came and went as we pleased and I would definitely stay there again. Thoroughly recommended!
Andrea and her husband Ian were fantastic hosts welcoming and very friendly. The accommodation is great with views over the fields and the addition of the emus, donkeys, horses sheep and chickens and a very friendly host of dogs including Florence the puppy just made our stay there fantastic. Absolutely somewhere you would go back to again. We’d love to return and would have no reservation about recommending this to family and friends. Thank you Andrea for a fabulous stay
Wonderful break, beautiful surroundings
If you love animals and enjoy peace and quiet this is perfect for you...my daughters and I had a lovely relaxing break at the dairy, which was well equipped, clean and comfortable.
Andrea couldn’t do any more to help us and was there for anything we needed. My daughters loved all the animals and it was a real pleasure watching it all from our own private space.
There is a lovely pub not far from the farm and plenty of lovely walks to choose from, we had a fantastic time and will be back soon!

Lovely New Forest Experience
It’s the second time that I’ve stayed at Andrea’s quaint little “dairy” and what a wonderful experience it is. From the moment you drive into the yard you are greeted by a menagerie of animals including two very friendly donkeys and even a couple of emus. This time I brought my daughter and five year old granddaughter who just loved it, especially playing with the friendly dogs. Andrea and Ian were very welcoming and let us wander around the property and my granddaughter was able to collect the eggs which she was very excited about. We all had a wonderful stay. It might not be five star luxury but you will get a five star experience. We loved it and I will definitely be back.
