We recently spent 2 weeks staying in The Dairy for a family vacation, and had an absolutely wonderful time.
Catherine is an extremely kind and generous hostess, and helped make our vacation in Normandy all the more memorable. We feel as though we have made a new friend, and hope that we can visit again in the not too distant future.
The property is exactly as described and pictured - a traditionally built "colombage" style former dairy - that we found very comfortable for the 6 of us (4 adults, 2 kids). We had ample space for all of us and all our belongings. The Dairy is very clean and well-equipped - we had absolutely everything we needed to look after ourselves. All of the beds were all very comfortable, too. :)
The location is perfect - close enough to Livarot to make a morning trip for fresh croissants, or to the local supermarket, but rural enough to feel completely away from everything. The views from the garden are wonderful - we spent several mornings and afternoons/evenings under the apple tree, just sitting and enjoying the peace and tranquility. On days when we were more active, plenty of activities and places of interest were within easy reach, including the beach and historical landmarks. Catherine is very knowlegable about the local area, and made lots of suggestions, provided information and helped us to book activities we were interested in.
There really isn't anything negative we can think of to say about our experience - and not enough space (or words) to capture how much we truly enjoyed ourselves.
