“A Wonderful Week”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Dairy for a week (wish it had been longer). On arrival there was a bottle of wine on the table, ham, coleslaw, tomatoes, lettuce and cucumber in the fridge as well as a loaf of bread. This was very welcome as it was evening when we arrived.
The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is on suite as well as there being another bathroom down stairs. The shower was wonderful, good water pressure, constant temperature. The electrics are English and French, so no need to bring adapters. I love a galleried bedroom, so this was an added pleasure.
The boulangerie is only a few minutes walk away and opens at 8:15 every morning except Wednesday. There is also a bar/restaurant that is open every day except Wednesday.
There is also a heated swimming pool, very nice after a hot day out.
The area has a wealth of Chateaux, a zoo, a nature area similar to New Forest.

“Peace and Tranquillity”
Reviewed 5 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We have recently returned from a wonderfully relaxing two weeks in The Dairy and can't wait to return. Angela and Derek were the perfect hosts, always ready to help which was especially appreciated when Brittany Ferries cancelled all crossings. Angela sorted everything out for us. The Dairy is beautiful with lovely old beams everywhere, tastefully decorated and equipped with everything one could need. It is situated in a quiet hamlet, perfect for evening strolls and close to many interesting old towns and villages. The icing on the cake is the covered , heated swimming pool, where one can swim or lounge whatever the weather. Whilst we were there, there were several couples on repeat visits which speaks volumes on the quality of the accommodation.

“Excellent Holiday, great accomodation and outstanding area of natual beauty!”
Reviewed 18 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This is a top class group of Gites. When we turned up, we were so pleased with what we saw. Derek and Angela make you feel most welecome and have ensured you need everything for a excellent holiday.

They are very helpful and friendly.

The grounds are immaculate and the pool is a bonus!

We certainly will be returning, as the area is great for cycling and exploring by car.

Thanks both for making our holiday so great!
