    “Even before arriving at The Old Dairy, Nicola the owner was in contact with us and very kindly arranged for us to arrive early which fitted in with our travel arrangements.”

    On arrival the Old Dairy met every expectation, not just the presentation of the cottage but the thoughtful welcome of the lovely fresh eggs and homemade cake. The property provided a great base from which to visit all that the Cotswolds has to offer, but at the same time a lovely place to relax and enjoy a quite evening. We were travelling in our vintage car which when raining benefits from being garaged if the weather becomes inclement. Nicola and Tom were extremely kind and made space in their barn to shelter our pride and joy!! - thank you so much for this. The Old Dairy was simply a lovely home from home and for anyone planning to visit to the Cotswolds it cannot come more highly recommended. We shall without doubt return.

The property

Located in the quaint village of Shilton, The Old Dairy is a quintessential Cotswolds' property, set back from the lane that runs through the heart of the village, very smart and very stylish.

Step inside to find a joyful show of colour and homeliness, large light rooms and a well equipped retreat ideal for a relaxing break.

Dating back to the 1680's, the building was originally the creamery and the place where butter was churned.

Today it retains a classical charm with high ceilings and large windows that make the space really welcoming.

The owners, who have completely renovated the building, have created a beautiful retreat.

Outside is a typical English cottage garden, with a delightful village beyond this.

Stroll to the pub (the owners can lend you wellies and coats if necessary!), jump in the car and be in Burford in about 3 mins or simply do nothing - this choice is your in this cracking holiday home.
