The Dairy is located in the rural spot of Ulcombe, near Maidstone, yet extremely accessible via major roads and close to two large train stations that connect to London (Headcorn and Maidstone).
Only a short 15 minute walk away you will find a lovely Kentish pub, and should you wish to explore Headcorn and Lenham these are both within a 10 minute drive offering a choice of pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. Or for days out exploring Kent attractions such as the beautiful Leeds Castle which offers great fun for all the family and big events across the year, and is 10 minutes away. The Big Cat Sanctuary is also nearby where you can see a wide variety of large endangered cats. The beaches along the South East Coast are approximately 20 miles away where you can visit the lovely seaside towns of Hythe, Greatstone and Camber Sands.

Came to The Dairy for a family's 40th birthday celebration. We were all pleasantly surprised by the size of the cottage. Beautifully styled throughout. Would thoroughly recommend a meal at The Pepper Pot - varied menu, huge portions & welcoming staff. A lovely stay, would definitely stay again. Thank you The Dairy!
