    The Old Dairy is a lovely, well-appointed and comfortable cottage with a beautiful and tranquil setting. The owners were friendly and welcoming: our welcome pack included home-made scones, cream, jam and wine, as well as milk, tea and coffee, so we felt on holiday from the moment we arrived. Weare Gifford itself is a tiny village with a friendly pub but no shop. However, Great Torrington and Bideford are both a short drive away with shops, restaurants and other amenities available. The cottage is well situated for RHS Rosemoor and visiting the gardens there was a highlight of our holiday. A fantastic place to rest and re-charge.

    We returned to the Old Dairy for a weeks family holiday following a long weekend stay last year. The experience was just as good, if not better. Kevin and Mary made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay, not just at the beginning like we got in some cottages we've stayed at, and their attention to detail in everything they did was outstanding. I can't recommend The Old Dairy enough, it's an absolute gem that is run by a couple that clearly put a lot of love into what they do. Keep up the excellent work Kev and Mary, we will return again I am sure

    Fabulous, immaculately clean and well equipped. Kev was a fantastic host who went out of his way to make our stay special. Good local pub with plenty of friendly characters, we look forward to returning to have another pint with Kenny. Really nice welcome pack which we sadly didn’t get a chance to finish off. Will definitely return, had a superb break and outstanding February weather.

    We had a fabulous time at the Old Dairy: a lovely house, beautifully kept and in a wonderful location. Kev and Mary were away during our stay, but were very helpful, considerate and hospitable in leaving provisions for us and ensuring we had clear directions to find the house and so on. We'd only like to have stayed longer!

    The cottage and location were stunning, Kevin and Mary were so welcoming, as soon as we walked through the door it felt like home. Lots of lovely little personal touches and a fantastic welcome pack. Already booked up for next year. Can't recommend highly enough.

    Beautiful cottage, extremely well equipped. Quiet, peaceful location but with the bonus of local hostelry within a few minutes walk. Lovely edible welcome pack on arrival and the fresh flowers in each room a delight. Thank you.
