"Our 4th visit to Dairy Cottage and it just seems to get better and better. Love it so much. Michael and Shirley are the best hosts we have ever met. Little ones had a lovely holiday with is completely down the Michael and Shirley. Once again we are all a little sad to be going home. Will definitely be back."

Another fabulous time with Shirley, Michael and all the animals. Thank you!! We loved feeding all the animals, especially the calves. T loved herding sheep and especially her ride on Mouse. We have been for 3 years now and still love it. Great cottage, we love helping out and Michael and Shirley (and the dogs!) are great hosts. Thank you again
"Your cottage was a perfect location for a memorable reunion of friends. The house is cozy and well laid out – even with 5 kids running around we felt we had plenty of space. We all enjoyed the farm aspects and the kids loved feeding the calves. Thanks for everything!"

"Have had a wonderful week in a wonderful setting and in very comfortable and tastefully decorated cottage. Shirley and Michael are exceptional hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them despite their hectic and busy lifestyle. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a restful break."

"Thank you Shirley and Michael for a wonderful week at Beckhead Cottage. We couldn’t of asked for a more peaceful place to stay. It was an Incredible cottage, comfortable, spotless, well equipped and a great garden for our girl to play in. The walks around the farm were our favourite part of the week. We will definitely be back."

"We just had a long weekend at the farm and absolutely LOVED it!!! Our cottage was amazing and felt like a home away from home. The farm is absolutely gorgeous but what really made the weekend were the owners (and the fact it was calving season ). Shirley and Michael were so very welcoming and sweet. My daughter got to feed a highland calf and she loved it. They were so open and welcoming that we now feel would couldn’t possibly stay anywhere else. The children’s play area was great and super safe and the petting zoo was just so much fun. We loved Tottie the pig. I would highly highly recommend the Farm to anyone!!!!! We look forward to seeing Shirley at the highland show with her ponies and more so look forward to going back."

"Dairy Cottage was one of the best “finds” we have had having rented many cottages in different countries. Michael and Shirley were extremely friendly always ready to pass the time of day and to explain about the farm. We have had the please of feeding “Flossy” the calf and the lambs every day."
Michael and Deborah, Essex
"We spent a wonderful relaxing week here at Dairy Cottage. We felt we have really got away from it all. Thanks to Michael and Shirley for their patience whilst their new “farm hands” learnt the ropes. Dylan and Sam have voted this their best holiday ever. Thank you from all of us."
Malcolm Sarah Dylan and Sam, Co Durham
"Stunning cottage. Access from the motorway and A 75 mean it’s a fantastic location. Idyllically quiet – the complete darkness at night was something we hadn’t experienced for a long time. Access to the animals was wonderful. We never had to walk far before someone (horse, donkey, goat dog) came to greet us. All amazingly well behaved – even around a 2 year old. Thank you so much we all loved it."
Miller Family, Lancashire
"Lovely relaxing break over Valentines Week-end. Thank you for the flowers and wine!, we especially loved the free range eggs provided! The cottage is beautiful and we made very good use of the log fire. We will be back."
