"Thank you for the most wonderful stay!  This cottage is just the most beautiful one we've stayed in and certainly the most comfortable one. Brigita was the most welcoming and friendly host with the most helpful knowledge of the area.  We've certainly enjoyed our stay!  PS.  The shower was fantastic!"
Bohms, Manchester
"The Irishman's Cottage truly lives up to it's name; genuine, hospitable, welcome to all, extremely clean, quality fixtures and fittings, tastefully decorated and resented and only surpassed by its owners desire to go the extra mile.  Thank you Brigita!"
The Halls / Lancashire
"Stayed over the long weekend of a family member's wedding and have had an absolutely fantastic time.  Dovecote cottage is simply beautiful.  We were given such a lovely warm welcome and feel spoilt!  Thank you for helping make this special weekend a joy!  We shall definitely return in the near future."
"Thanks Brigita for the lovely welcome.  This is a beautiful barn and a great location to explore Yorkshire. I would recommend your accommodation to anyone (and will). The Spice Mill is also a hidden gem, we ate there twice and the food was delicious.  Thanks again."
Carine Baker / Halifax
"This place is simply stunning.  We have spent a wonderful weekend celebrating Sam and Mel's 40th birthdays in style. Nothing has been too much trouble for you and there is no doubt that we will be back to enjoy the beautiful barns and stunning setting very soon."
Jane Brown / Yorkshire
"Dovecote cottage is an absolute joy, we have stayed in many cottages and houses, from Tarbert in the Western Isles to Salcombe in South Devon.  Never have we encountered such attention to detail.  Well done Brigita!"

"Amazing break and so sad to be spending our last night in this gorgeous cottage. Perfect location and enjoyable 'easy' ride into York on the sunny days of our stay. Will definitely return soon. Thank you so much Brigita and her kind daughters who did an amazing job of our bread!"
Vanessa and David Harte, Kingswinford, West Midlands
"Stunning and immaculate. What a beautiful location and oh so peaceful. Welcome hamper was filled with lots of local produce and fresh baked bread and eggs from Brigita were amazing. We really needed to recharge our batteries and the barn was the perfect place to do this. We commend Richard & Brigita on their hard work and attention to detail in ensuring these beautiful barns have the longevity they deserve. It is always a pleasure to stay in such wonderful surroundings, well equipped and luxurious. Thank you Brigita for your warm and friendly welcome. We had an amazing time and will recommend this magical place to family and friends."

"We keep returning to this delightful cottage.  It is positively the best place we ever stay.  The ambience, welcome and overall standard cannot be faulted.  Thank you again for a lovely stay."

"Well, where to begin to describe our wonderful experience at 'The Dovecote Barns'.  We were a big family here to prepare for our daughter's wedding, including the 6 bridesmaids! From the start Brigitta couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming and was on hand to help with all our needs, even taking some photographs.  The Dovecote Barns is an amazing beautiful place to stay and we couldn't think of a single thing it didn't have.  Staying here made our weekend amazing and on Sunday we enjoyed a family picnic in the lovely gardens. We would love to come here again in the future and left feeling relaxed and the happily married couple ready to start their honeymoon.  Thanks so much Brigitta."

"We have had a super break and enjoyed watching stage 2 and 3 of the Tour de Yorkshire....after our long days out it was lovely to get back here to the welcoming and utterly comfortable surroundings.  We will be back!"

Lorna and John Conway, Edinburgh
"Many thanks for a relaxing and wonderful stay at Dovecote Barns again.  We have enjoyed walks, learning all the history.  Great meals and total comfort in the cottage.  You have thought of everything - also for the generous and delicious welcome basket!"
Helen and Keith Green
"Thank you very much for your warm welcome to your lovely accommodation.  It provided us with a wonderful base from which to visit family and friends in Yorkshire."
Beth and Nick Booth, Norfolk
"The Dovecote has been a real home from home for us all.  Thank you Brigita for bringing around the toys for the children to use, they've had lots of fun. Nick and I were astounded that the cottage has been running as a holiday home for nearly 9 years - it honestly looks like it's just been setup - everything is obviously looked after and kept fresh and up-to-date, really beautiful.  We can't wait to come back."
