Dairy Cottage is set in a peaceful hollow of 45 acres. A babbling brook meanders through the grounds, past the wildlife pond and continues along the picturesque nature trail, which is a DEFRA assigned access, recognised for its archaeological interest and unique setting. This accessible nature trail leads you through a beautiful valley of dramatic stone outcrops and blossoming gorse. In the Spring, the bright yellow gorse and white blossom of the blackthorn contrast with the stunning grey slate rocks. Later in early Summer the hillside is adorned with purple foxgloves. Indulge your imagination as you absorb the natural beauty and unique tranquility whilst you wander along this unspoilt haven for nature where you can glimpse magnificent birds of prey, flocks of lapwing and much more. After nearly half a mile of wending stream you will be delighted at the discovery of another wildlife pond, playing host to a wealth of pondlife, including dragonflies, striking turquoise damselflies and swallows as they dip and dive across the shimmering water.
Other facilities include a pitch 'n' putt course set in an acre of meadowland and games room with table tennis, pool table and darts and an outdoor childrens play area.
Parking in tarmac car-park, easy access to entrance via car park.

"A wonderful discovery"
My stay at the Dairy was the highlight of my holiday in the UK. Driving in along the narrow lanes with overhanging trees was mysterious and made me feel a little apprehensive about my choice of accommodation. However, when I met Helen and saw what I had booked, I was overjoyed. Not only was she gracious and helpful but our accommodation was spacious, comfortable and peaceful, yet so many Cornwall sights were such a short distance away. I wish we could have stayed longer.
