Cottage | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
The Old Dairy is situated on a 60 acre farm where the owners keep sheep, cattle, chickens and ducks, in the heart of rolling Hampshire countryside, a mile and a half from the pretty village of West Tytherley. This is a great venue for large family get-togethers and special celebrations. There is plenty to interest children, who can be shown round the farm to see the animals. Fresh eggs and home grown beef and lamb are on sale at the farmhouse.
The Old Dairy has been converted with care from the former dairy, providing very spacious accommodation and retaining much of its original character, with many exposed beams, timberwork and interior brick walls. There are old pine and flagstone floors with rugs, and furnishings which reflect the more rustic style of a country barn.
