The Old Dairy is a luxury three bed barn conversion in glorious open countryside on the Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire border. There is excellent walking, cycling and adventurous activities close by. You’ll love it because of its location, private garden, beamed ceilings, wood-burner and super comfy beds with beautiful crisp bed linen. The spacious barn has a large open plan living area opening onto a private garden,  with direct access to foot paths and bridleways.  There is a comfy snug to hide away if you want a bit of quiet to curl up with a book or if you want just switch on the TV and choose a film. 

Outside there is private garden with table and sofas, fire-pit and BBQ.  If you would like the addition of a hot tub this can be arranged subject to availability at an additional cost - please email for more information prior to booking.
