The place

Maggie and her dog love welcoming guests to the Old Dairy Barn. They'll make you feel right at home with treats for your own dog, ear scratches (Maggie), sniffs (the dog) and a warmth that runs through everything in this characterful cottage. Her house is just at the top of the garden if you need her, but she’s left her wealth of local knowledge in the guest book. You’ll find quiet walks along the canal, ideas for days out and suggestions for the many dog-friendly pubs and restaurants around, including the lovely walk through a nature reserve that ends at the superb King’s Arms. The views from the suntrap courtyard terrace are fantastic and the high walls mean it’s a safe space for your dog to roam around while you sip a glass of wine and watch the sunset.
