We visit holiday cottages as a group of 10/12 each year. Lamperts Dairy has to be one of the best. The building itself was beautiful yet modern with all facilities and amenities one could wish for.

Lampert's Dairy is great for a chilled out getaway. Whilst there is wifi, there is no phone signal on most networks, unless you climb the hill behind the property (worth it just for the views).
