Very nice cottage with good facilities and friendly owners. location was not where we thought it was but turned out fine, just a bit more driving. The local village has a very good shop and pub/ restaurant.

A lovely cosy cottage, perfect for a quiet, relaxing break! We loved making use of the wood burner! The cottage was well equipped, and perfect for us and our springer spaniel Molly. Carol gave us some great pub recommendations, and had kindly left us a yummy cream tea on arrival. We enjoyed our stay at Dipple Dairy Cottage.

The cottage was very cosy and welcoming. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, don't be put of by the abrupt answer phone message. There were a lot of extras in the cottage to make your stay enjoyable.

An absolutely divine rural location. If you want to get away from it all then this is perfect place.

The cottage is beautiful and very cosy. Everything we could have wanted or needed. I took all but the kitchen sink and didnt need most of it. Owners are very accommodating and friendly without being in your face. Steve was a mine of useful information. Carols homemade scones , clotted cream and jam were delicious and a lovely touch. Although the coRead morettage was a tad remote the surroundings were beautiful as was the peace and quiet Hide

Lovely little cottage tucked out of the way. If you want peace and quiet thats the place for you. Two really good places to eat within 10 minutes drive if you dont want to cook which we didnt. The hosts are lovely people and very helpful and friendly. Dog friendly which was one of the reasons we chose it. The wet room shower proved handy not just fRead moreor us but for our dog as well. The bed was the most comfortable away from home you could ask for. Would go back again. Hide

Nice enough cottage inside but outside left a lot to be desired. A bit of a drag to nearest village shop and pub which was closed and has been closed for the past two years

We had an excellent stay with our dog at Dipple Dairy Cottage. Carol and Steve were superb hosts and very helpful during our stay. A really great venue and location. Ideal for escaping and putting to one side normal daily life.

I have to rate this holiday as up there with the best. We had a fantastic stay, and were made most welcome by Carol and Steve. The cottage is perfectly located for easy access to some of the most beautiful beaches in Devon and Cornwall. The gnome sanctuary deserves a mention too, only a couple of miles away, and worth a visit. If you love peace andRead more quiet, this is the place to stay. An average of around 4 cars a day pass the cottage, and thats a busy day! Hide
