The apartment was really lovely and spacious with everything you could possibly need! Anne-Marie, UK - May 2019 A lovely, clean and modern space in a private setting - great local travel tips and not far from local walks/areas of interest such as The Forest of Dean, Bourton On The Water and Gloucester Quays! Great local food and friendly locals - will be returning again to this lovely part of the country! Leanne UK - April 2019 Sarah’s apartment is clean, spacious, warm and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone. Zunad, UK - December 2018 Lovely location, very quiet, clean and comfortable. Sarah is a wonderful host. This is without doubt one of the very best places we've stayed Bruce, Australia - June 2017 We had a great stay at the Dairy. The kids enjoyed themselves be it indoor or outdoor. There were swings, trampoline, big garden for them to run and hide and even indoor with movies galore! Thank you so much for a great stay including the breakfast hamper! Location was great. Within short distance from Gloucester yet quiet and peaceful to have a good rest after a long day of exploring. Wish we could have stayed longer and explore the area more. The only complaint was the weather! Patrina, Singapore - June 2017 Really convenient place to stay to the explore Gloucester !!! Surrounded by green pastures and very gorgeous garden....ample car sparking at the front, behind an enclosed gated area. Comfy bed and relaxing lounge... Yvonne, Australia - May 2017 I have just come back from a lovely week away in Sarah's garden apartment, the dairy. I was given clear directions to find the apartment which made my arrival very easy. Once checking in, I was greeted with a lovely hamper in the kitchen containing cereal, butter, eggs, bread and biscuits. This alongside the milk left in the fridge was a very welcoming touch from Sarah. Sarah was an amazing host with a extensive knowledge of the surrounding area so was always on hand to offer places to visit and eat. She was always a phone call or text away if ever needed, and nothing was too much bother. The dairy was cleaned at a very high standard and the king size bed was very welcomed after a long day of exploring! The kitchen is kitted out with everything you need to cook when needed. Towels were also provided. The dairy would definately be my first port of call if I was ever to find myself in Gloucester again. Jade, England - May 2017 We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Sarah's Garden apartment. Sarah was a fantastic host including facilitating an early check-in as we were arriving late after a long overseas flight that morning and was in desperate need of a shower and bed. The location was perfect for exploring the Cotswolds. Sarah gave us some very good tips on where to travel in the region. The place was very nicely set up with all the amenities that we needed. Highly recommended if you are looking for a base to explore the Cotswold region! Ashwin, Australia - April 2017

Interaction with guestsWe love having people to stay in our apartment and enjoy meeting our guests from all around the world. After we have shown you around, you do not need to see us until you check out however if you want any help with ideas and advice about the locality we are always happy to assist. The Dairy is self-contained so guests can come and go as they please. We are in and out of our own home on a daily basis so are usually around if anything further is required or just simply to stop and chat! I usually also have my phone with me so if you can't see me around the house then you can always send me a quick text or email if you need anything!

Visit to Gloucester
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Sarah and her girls were extremely welcoming and gave us great advise on local places to visit. The flat is spacious and has lots of land for the kids to run around. The girls gave a basket full of toys for my 2 little ones to play with which was much appreciated. Overall perfect for a few days away with the family.

It's a great cozy place suitable for either biz trip or personal holiday. The one bedroom apartment is very spacious. I stayed there by myself twice, couple of days each time, as it's near my company, I think the space is more than enough for a couple. It was newly resonated, the kichen appliances are good, modern style. I like the high ceiling a lot! It's very quiet, the bedding is wonderful--even better than my own house, I could always have a good night sleep there. The hostess Sarah is very welcoming and warm hearted, makes you feel like home! I would recommend her place and I'd like to go back again.

Very comfortable stay in a spacious flat
My wife & I stayed at The Dairy for 3 weeks in July. It was really comfortable and well-equipped - and it is even more spacious in real life than it looks in the photos! Sarah made us feel welcome and at home, with food left for us when we arrived and tips on local places to visit. And when one of the saucepans broke one day, it was replaced with a brand new one in no time! The surrounding countryside is beautiful and the centre of Gloucester is a 20 minute cycle-ride away.

Excellent Flat with great location and beautiful views
I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay here. The flat has everything you need to have a relaxing time in the country while being only minutes away from shopping and sites in Gloucester. Sarah and Andrew were excellent hosts and quite enjoyable to talk to but not at all intrusive or overbearing. Staying here was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays I have ever had. I would bet we will be staying here many more times in the future!

Brilliant self catering cottage with everything that you need
The dairy is fantastic. Everything that you need is right at your fingertips. It's really close to shops and restaurants as well as the Cottswolds. Sarah has been really helpful and friendly since the day we arrived and always willing to give us an idea of where to go during our weekends.
