About Lynne O'Reilly / Alec Edmonds

We are a local family, having lived just outside of Swanage for many years so have an excellent knowledge of the area and local facilities. We now live in a neighbouring cottage to Old Dairy, where we are enjoying the wonderful wildlife and countryside surrounding us.

Lynne O'Reilly / Alec Edmonds purchased this barn in 2016

Why Lynne O'Reilly / Alec Edmonds chose Winfrith Newburgh

Stepping inside Old Dairy, this property envelopes you with a wonderful feeling of privacy, but spacious both inside and out.

Although set in the heart of countryside, the location is ideal with the coast 3 miles away, set on the Jurassic coast, and a village just a mile away, with ample shops and a mainline

station, but near to all Dorsets attractions.

What makes this barn unique

Old Dairy is approached by a tree lined drive, which is a wonderful habitat to pheasants, ducks, deer and many species of birds. There is a pretty garden adjacent to facilites for car parking, and a barn that used to be home for dairy cattle, but now home to owls and our pet ponies. The whole area is surrounded by fields, with a wonderful feeling of open space.

Definitely not as expected

  • 1 of 5

I would like to give this property the lowest rating due to the poor attitude of the owners when we had a problem.

We booked this cottage for a week in August, on arrival we found everything as expected, very quiet and out of the way. However this only lasted until 08:30 Monday morning when we were rudely awakened and found ourselves next door to a building site with multiple builders and earth moving equipment.

We complained via HomeAway app to the cottage owners who replied once saying they thought that the site works were not resuming until Autumn and they would speak to the owners of the site but it was out of their hands. We had some concerns when we arrived as we noticed ground works in progress on the other side of the garden fence.

Every day we had to vacate the cottage early in the morning and not return until evening as we could not even open the patio doors or sit outside because of the noise and disturbance.

We contacted the owners numerous times but they did not even reply to us again.

When we returned home we put in a formal complaint through HomeAway following their complaint procedure, but the owners did not even bother to respond to this.

I could not recommend this property. The owners knew that were building works were happening and should have checked the situation of the building works next door. We should have been told and our booking should have been cancelled. Our holiday was completely disrupted and marred by the situation, a waste of our money as we couldn't use the property during the day. The lack of response from the owners says it all really.
