Follow the coastline south to the picture perfect setting of The Dairy, this once former farm outhouse has been beautifully converted to present a romantic retreat made for two.  With a modern coastal twist think luxury and relaxation for your time out be it lazy autumn weekend, action packed Spring break or simply a week by the sea.  The Dairy offers accommodation for 2 and is moments from the scenic town of St Mawes offering a fusion of nautical tradition with a more cosmopolitan vibe. The Dairy welcomes one small dog to stay.

The Property

The Dairy has been transformed from a forgotten 1930's barn to a super-stylish holiday home.  The full height open plan living, dining and kitchen area has been carefully mapped out to encourage the relaxation of holiday life.  Sink into the comfortable sofa with a favourite film or enjoy an overdue catch up with your nearest and dearest.  The kitchen is fully fitted in a modern style, the budding chef in the party can get creative with some of Cornwall's finest ingredients including the freshest of fish caught locally.  The indulgent double bedroom has been decked out in soft creams and oatmeal with crisp white linens to compliment whilst the solid oak flooring completes the country cottage ambiance.  After the days coastal adventures then sink into a hot bath in the contemporary bathroom before heading out for a slap up supper Cornish style.

The property and welcome was excellent as was the service from your company throughout. 

The stable door leads out onto a sun trap paved courtyard offering stunning views across the fields, down the waters edge and away to St Mawes.  To the side of The Dairy is a seating area with bistro style table and chairs perfectly placed for al fresco dining or a mornings coffee.  A large communal field offers a spacious area to take in the view, guests are welcome to use this area.  The Roseland has much to offer and includes some of Cornwall's most breathtaking coastal paths winding their way along the creeks and inlets and out to the iconic St Antony's Head with far reaching views to Falmouth and beyond.  There are a number of places to dine out in the area from the quintessential country pubs to fine dining at the Tresanton Hotel, a picnic on the cliffs or quayside fish and chips you are well catered for.  The area is popular with sailors the world over attracted to the sheltered waters of Carrick Roads, Percuil Sailing Club offer tuition or even try your hand at windsurfing perhaps?  Cornwall's historic city of Truro is a short drive away or take a trip to the north or west coastline for their mile long golden beaches and coastal energy.

For larger parties The Cowshed adjoins The Dairy offering accommodation for up to 10 guests.

This was our second visit to The Dairy - we enjoyed it even more than the first time. We are very impressed with the customer service you provide and having used other companies for our holidays in Cornwall. We believe that you really do stand out from those other companies.

I found the staff a delight to liase with, professional but friendly and helpful. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and treat and the location was stunning. The veranda and equipment although we didn't use it was a lovely idea. Excellent information about the area in the property which was really helpful. Overall great.

We had a delightful holiday. The website is first class and the booking process could not have been more straightforward.
