The Old Dairy Tregavethan, Truro, Cornwall

We've received this wonderful review from recent guests at The Old Dairy Tregavethan, they enjoyed it so much they're already thinking of returning for a second time this year...


"Thank you for making our booking and our stay last week so special. 

We holiday in Cornwall an awful lot as it's where I come from and where my family live. With three children we often book cottages rather than descend on my parents and as such have stayed in lots of different places...I have to say the your dairy is one of, if not the best place we have ever stayed. It just felt like home, from the lovely Easter cakes you left the children to the well equipped kitchen, flowers, playroom, clean travel cot, amazing garden, the list is endless. The location was just perfect with my Gran living in truro and my parents down west we were perfectly positioned to get everywhere, and we did! 

Apart from all that, wandering down your lane when the baby was tucked up and playing pooh sticks by the stream, watching the silly pheasant in the opposite field and drinking a glass of wine watching the sunset was just lovely, we didn't want to leave. We really hope to come back and stay soon. Hope you will have us again. 

With the very best wishes,

Gemma, Daniel, Daisy, Olivia and Noah"
