Lovely few days in the fantastic Dairy. Great Location. Exceptionally well-appointed cottage. Slept amazingly! Nothing to be improved – it was just perfect. Thank you

Even with the terrible weather we had a lovely time. We came away just wanting to relax and spend time together and The Dairy was perfect. We slept really well – its so quiet and the bed is amazingly comfortable. We had the wood burner going and watched films (there are hundreds to choose from). We ate locally and walked up the hill (beautiful) using the maps that James has provided. We loved it so much we’ve booked a return visit in July. Thank you SO much for creating this little piece of Heaven!!

What a wonderful stay! Everything from the wonderful welcome hamper, White Company products (as much as we wanted) and beautifully pressed sheets, exceeded our expectations. Such a wonderfully designed and lovingly put together sanctuary. James was gorgeous – looked after us before and during our stay and made sure we had everything we needed. A lovely riverside walk and a wander in Broadway is highly recommended! Even pre-spring the garden was stunning. Would love to come back and see it in the summer. Thank you for a delightful stay!

We just came for a two night stay on our way down to Devon and to be honest we didn’t want to leave. Right from the moment we arrived we were greeted by James who, despite the weather was super smiley and cheerful. Our welcome journey was AMAZING and so generous. The Dairy is comfortable, clean, original and kitted out to a very high standard. James is the perfect host – was there if we needed him, but it felt like we were in our own little world. The weather was atrocious but that didn’t matter as we just lit fires (there is an endless supply of wood), played games and watched some of James’s mammoth film collection on the most amazing TV. You can probably tell that we really liked it here!

A wonderful stay. A warm welcome from James. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Loved the log fire, particularly after a days hiking.

Oh my lord! We love this place. I can’t believe we’ve never been to this part of the country before. We enjoy walking and there are some great treks here. We walked around Bredon Hill loads – each time taking a different route (loads of maps provided). The Malverns are incredible. Very dramatic. We ate in the local pubs and one night James cooked us a cottage pie (delicious) for us which we ate in front of the fire. It was bliss. Honestly, The Dairy was exactly what we both needed to recharge our batteries. Thoroughly recommended.

Our second stay at The Dairy and once again it was just perfect for us. Thank you James for making our birthdays so special for us.

I feel that after my stay, James and I are now old, dear friends. I came here alone from The States, needing some R&R. James was there when I needed him and I have to thank him for making me feel so welcome during my stay. From his wealth of local information to coming to my aid when I blew the tyres on my car outside Worcester. James really is my hero! James has done a wonderful job making The Dairy full of ‘hygge’. The bed was so comfy, I slept for three days! And after a week at Willow Pond I now feel ready to go onto London and do business. One day I shall be back. Why wouldn’t you?

What an amazing place! We have LOVED our stay here. Never before have we stayed somewhere that has been thought through so carefully and intuitively – if there was something needed, you turned and it was there, just in absolutely the right spot! We felt so welcome and I’ve already been raving about its perfection to my friends. Thank you so much for having us (and for the very generous hamper!) Very best wishes.

A wonderful 2 night break in The Dairy. What a fabulous place! Ver comfortable, stylish and high quality. Amazing welcome pack – a lot of thought went into this and it was certainly the best we’ve ever been given. Looking forward to returning to see the garden in full bloom. James is a great host and clearly loves what he does. He made us feel very special. Many thanks.

Thank you for a lovely stay. The Dairy is a perfect place for the relaxing few days that we needed. It was very lovely and comfortable. The welcome hamper was wonderful, the best we’ve ever had. We really had everything we could need. We’d love to come back one day and see the garden in full bloom. Good luck James, you are a wonderful host. Thanks again.

This is a high spec place, wonderfully decorated with beautiful furniture. We stay in a lot of holiday lets and more owners should take inspiration from The Dairy. We took loads of photos and are now going to go back and revamp our place in Dorset! Our only wish is that we could take James back to do it for us! On a more practical note, we really enjoyed our stay but wish we had longer.

We stayed in The Dairy for a week and found it simple the best accommodation even over 8/9 years of autumnal walking (and eating!) holidays in different parts of the UK which we visit from our home in southern Spain. We shall look forward to future visits and, of course, recommend our friends to come and stay with James.

We had an extremely enjoyable week in The Dairy. It was the perfect place for us. We used it as a base to visit all sorts of places like Sudley Castle, Stratford and Cheltenham. One day we even went into Wales and drove down to Hay-on-Wye, which was really lovely. James had loads of useful information and whatever he didn’t know he was able to find out. We can honestly say our week was full of fun and laughter. We loved the garden. We loved The Dairy. We would love to return.

We were very glad that we were recommended to stay here. What a find! We really enjoyed our too-short stay while attending the Pershore Jazz Festival. James has made us feel welcome and the hamper of lovely goodies have been much appreciated. We look forward to a return visit.

The Dairy with James and Mike was amazing! We don’t have anything like it in Holland!! You were perfect hosts and we laughed a lot. We had a week in The Dairy and were really sad when the week ended. We didn’t want to leave. We loved the local pubs (think we went to them all!), we explored lots of nearby National Trust properties (recommended by James). We ate and drank probably too much, but we love it here. It would be wonderful to come back one day.

This is a really lovely place. It’s kind of undiscovered. James helped us make the most of our stay. It was so quiet and tranquil that we slept really well. It’s a very high quality place. We loved it all. We took loads of photos and really enjoyed the garden. One day James even made us a picnic lunch to have in the garden. It was just perfect.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Your attention to detail has made The Dairy a comfortable and peaceful home from home. Everything is just right for us from the welcome hamper (kept us going for days!) to the amazing bathroom. Enjoyed staying in the garden and walking in the beautiful countryside. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We feel privileged to stay in such a beautiful cottage, with everything you could wish for a comfortable and relaxing stay. James, you were the perfect host. We love what you’ve done with the cottage and the garden. We look forward to seeing how the garden will grow. We really hope to stay again. Wonderful!

We have enjoyed a fabulously relaxing holiday at The Dairy. It’s been fantastic to have so many places to sit and enjoy the setting of the house in the garden. This is a wonderful space with exquisite furniture and decoration – the best Rural Retreats property we’ve ever stayed in (and we’ve stayed in a few!). Thank you James for creating this space and for being the perfect host.
