We had a wonderful stay at the Dairy. The cottage is charming, comfortable, warm and perfectly equipped.

We absolutely loved this cottage, it was the perfect spot for us in the middle of our 2+ weeks in the UK.

We had such a brilliant week exploring the Yorkshire Dales from this beautiful country chic cottage. My two daughters loved to feed the chickens every day and take a dip in the hot tub whilst looking at the views across the countryside. Perfect location right next to a pretty quaint village - Pateley Bridge.

An exceptionally beautiful, charming and welcoming cottage, which was immaculately clean and situated in a private location, but also close to nearby villages.

We had a wonderful Christmas at Blue Plain Dairy. The setting was beautiful and close to Pateley Bridge which has a couple of good butcher shops as well as a convenience store and tea shops.
