Guests from Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire - October 2017
As expected 5 star plus. Diane and Andrew provide a professional service, whilst retaining a personal and friendly touch. Cottage spacious, fitted out with quality furniture, fittings and utensils. Not being walkers we enjoyed visiting the local market towns and having some excellent food.
Returning Guests from West Heslerton, North Yorkshire - October 2017
We spent a wonderful and relaxing 10 days in this beautiful and cosy new cottage. We had a very warm welcome by Diane even though we arrived quite late in the evening. Everything about the cottage was absolutely perfect and even beyond our expectations. We had the opportunity to try several of the many given recommendations : walking Malham Cove and Pen-y-Gent, visiting the Cheese Festival, Black Sheep Brewery, Bolton Abbey, Bolton Castle, Fountains Abbey .... and having dinner at the Bolton Arms in Redmire. We would definitely have stayed longer. Many thanks again to Diane and Andrew for being the perfect hosts.

Wow - what an exceptional cottage with everything you could wish for and more. To enjoy the picturesque dales and the comfort and luxury of the Dairy made our 50th anniversary break extra special. A BIG thank you to Diane and Andrew for the friendly welcome and help, especially driving us to our celebration meal at the Heifer. Many thanks.
Guests from Soham, Cambridgeshire - September 2017
We previously stayed in The Byre and returned to enjoy the local walks. These are excellent from both The Dairy itself and further afield. Glorious. The accommodation is the ultimate in luxury, facility and finish. Such a lot of planning, vision and hard work has given us the opportunity to enjoy this top luxury in the Dales. Many thanks to Diane and Andrew for such a welcoming stay and for their passion in providing the cream of cottages - THE DAIRY.
Returning Guests from Whitley Bay, Tyne & Wear - September 2017
We have really enjoyed our few days in The Dairy cottage. It is exceptional with everything you could need and more and a lot of hard work, detail and thought has gone into it. Definitely 5* plus! Hope to be back in the near future. Thank you.
Guests from Beverley, East Yorkshire - August 2017
We arrived at The Dairy with very high expectations but even then we were absolutely blown away by the quality, attention to detail and overall delivery of all that was offered. This has been less like a country cottage break & more like a weekend with dear family friends and we cannot recommend Cottage in the Dales, The Dairy and the Howarths high enough. Thank you.

Enjoyed our few days in the beautiful 'Dairy Cottage'. Hard work has gone into every detail and proof of success shows as you enter. Congratulations Diane and Andrew on a job well done.

Guests from Netherlands - August 2017
We had an absolutely fantastic few days as the first guests in The Dairy. Stunning holiday cottage - a testament to months and months of hard work, passion and attention to detail. Amazing to be the first provider in the Dales of accommodation to guests with various disabilities - a real achievement. The wet room shower is gorgeous along with the extra comfortable bed.! We had a great weekend at Leyburn for the 1940s exhibition - fantastic day out. Congratulations Andrew and Diane, another beautiful cottage - 5 stars !!
Returning guests from Darlington - July 2017
Congratulations Andrew & Diane on gaining approval for the conversion of The Dairy. We are looking forward to being one of your first guests to test drive the mobility facilities. Best of luck with all the hard work to come! We are sure it will be so worthwhile. Can't wait!
