Kathleen, Susan, Teresa / School best friends celebrating their 60th Birthdays
"We have thoroughly enjoyed our time staying in this beautiful and comfortable Hay Barn.  And to sit outside and enjoy the garden. Brigita made us feel extremely welcome and thanks so much for the delicious welcome pack.  One of our party had travelled from Queensland Australia and will certainly be highly recommending this as a great place to stay.  Thank you."
Laurie and her Hens / London
"The hen's eyes lit up as soon as we walked into the barns - such a beautiful place to come and celebrate!  Brigita was an attentive and welcoming host and had set everything up very thoughtfully for us to make the most of our stay.  We had a wonderful weekend at the beautiful barns and don't want to go home to London.  Thank you for your warm hospitality!"
Gareth and Lesley Bell / Scotland
"Had a lovely stay. Cottage is beautiful with everything we needed. Really appreciate the lovely welcome hamper and all your advice about the locality! Enjoyed cycling around the countryside with all the pretty villages - note to any road cyclists - avoid the transpennine trail as it is just that, trail and not suitable for road bikes! Nice quiet B roads too and we got plenty miles in.  Thanks again and hope to return soon x"

"Had a fantastic stay at the barn, started by a warm and friendly welcome from Brigita whose recommendation of a visit to the York Marina was a fantastic idea. We had a lovely afternoon there. The accommodation is beautiful and the garden is such a relaxing space in which to enjoy family time and a glass of wine.  We would certainly consider staying here again.  Had everything we needed for our 8 month old son - cot and highchair.  Wish we could have stayed longer.  Thank you."
Dawn and Tony Reynolds / Kidderminster
"Excellent as always!  The bus is back - excellent for trips into York."

Janet & David and Elaine / Basingstoke
"We were so lucky, best weather week this year and such a beautiful setting to spend it in. Brigita's welcome, both personal and with her special basket of goodies, was a real bonus. Such a lovely lady! Thank you for making us so welcome. The barn conversion is wonderful - so many thoughtful details. It is beautiful and something to be proud of.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly recommend you to all our friends.  Thank you."
Richard and Maureen / Bourne, Lincolnshire
"Cannot remember how many times we have stayed at the Irishman's but each time has been just perfect. It is always a joy to return and we thank Brigita, a warm and generous host, for making our stay here so relaxing and stress free."
Jeanette and Tony / Tyne & Wear
"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.  "
