"Thank you for a lovely and relaxing stay in the Irishman's Cottage.  Our first visit to Dovecote Barns and we were happily surprised at the high standards of the barn and the lovely welcome we received from Brigita.  Thank you again for a lovely stay.  "

"Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We've really enjoyed our stay at the Irishman's Cottage, especially the time spent in front of the fire!"
John and Heather Brown / Teddington
"The cottage is do well equipped and you have thought of everything for an enjoyable stay. Very convenient for York and also a good location for exploring RHS garden at Harlow Carr and Bettys in Harrogate recommended. We are looking forward to our return visit!"
Dave and Mary Edwards / Essex
"Such a wonderful find for a sneaky extra break combined with a little work at nearby Stockbridge Technology Centre.  Your beautiful barn became our 'home' arriving in very cold, windy, snowy weather.  Good excuse to hibernate, watch tv and read in front of the cosy fire.  Excellent produce in the welcome basket, what more could we ask for?.... Thank you for everything!"
The Barton Family / Lancashire
"Wow, what a find.  I had been looking for a last minute get away and stumbled across Dovecote - and so glad I did!  Fantastic cottage, perfect location, delicious welcome basket, especially the bread and eggs, and a wonderful host.  Thank you for a super few nights away.   We have loved every second."

"Dovecote Barns was all we hoped it would be and so much more!  Everything you could possibly need was provided and the attention to detail throughout made for a very comfortable stay.  The 'welcome basket' was lovely, we loved the bread and preserves!  Brigita was a very welcoming host and nothing was too much trouble.  All in all we have had a great break and have loved Dovecote Barns.  Thanks."

"After spending my hen weekend here back in June 2017 and having such an amazing time, I have come back with all of my family and of course my husband!  Everyone loved Dovecote Barns as much as I do.  Brigita was very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.  The barns are perfect!  A barn for all occasions!  Thank you so much."
Alister and Linda / Scottish Borders
"We have spent a delightful few days in the Irishman's Cottage.  The break was arranged as a gift by our 3 lovely children. We could not have chosen a more perfect cottage and location ourselves. Excellent for walking, cycling and chilling out. Fabulous cottage with everything you need to make a great stay. Thank you so much Brigita for the lovely welcome we received on our arrival and for the delicious welcome basket.  We will highly recommend 'The Dovecote Barns' to anyone visiting and looking for 1st class accommodation in North Yorkshire."

"A truly spectacular weekend in a most amazing place! From the moment we arrived we knew that the barns were going to be special.  12 girls on a weekend away can be demanding but our expectations were totally exceeded by the standard of the barns, the beautiful attention to detail and stunning location.  The small touches of the fresh bread and baskets on arrival were the perfect finishing touch and enjoyed by all!  Brigita, thank you for helping make this weekend something really special and memorable for all the right reasons.  We will be back!"
The Cooper Family / Bristol
"What a lovely place to stay!  A great welcome from Brigita and the barn has everything you would ever need for a stress-free break.  We will definitely be returning to The Dovecote Barns."

"What a fantastic stay we have had, thank you so much.  Fabulous place to see in the New Year.  Accommodation was faultless, it was maintained to the highest standard.  Everything we needed was provided, including a superb welcome pack.  Perfect location for visiting York and surrounding areas.  What an amazing start to 2018.  Thank you Brigita and Richard."
Dan, Kelly and Tilly / Australia
"We wanted to say that we had the most wonderful time at the Hay Barn.  You looked after us so well and we really do appreciate everything you did for us.  Having a real Christmas tree was just beautiful.  Next time we are in England we will be sure to stay with you again.  It was the icing on the cake for our magical trip.  Thank you so much."
