Booking the whole site accommodates 22 guests across all 4 barns. This is 11 en-suite bedrooms and group dining in any of the Hay Barn (dines 12) or Long Hall (dines 22). This gives you flexibility to book multiple barns as a group booking whilst allowing you to retreat to your own quiet space at the end of the day.

About Group Bookings

All of our barns can be booked together to create a fantastic and flexible retreat for larger groups. There are 11 en-suite bedrooms in total accommodating 22 guests in all ensuite bedrooms.

For larger groups only, The Long Hall rental is offered to allow large groups of 13-22 to come together to both socialise and dine as one group. The rental includes all the crockery, cutlery, glasses, place settings, tables and chairs and all the trappings for a fine dining evening provided.

There is also an option for table tennis in the Long Hall on request.

Renting the Long Hall licenced bar is on a pre-booked request basis only for group rental. Under normal rental, the bar itself is not accessible, only the room and facilities.

Absolute perfection is a rare find, until now. The attention to detail to ensure guests feel welcome is outstanding. Every room is a delight to spend time in and to return to after a day out discovering the area. Congratulations on the thoughtful renovations, superb quality furnishings and special touches in the Grand Barn! A memorable stay for all the right reasons.

Thank you Brigita for a wonderful stay! Never have we slept so well as we have here at The Dovecote – such a relaxing setting. Welcome basket after a long journey was amazing – so much thought has been put into making our stay so enjoyable. Will definitely be back and have no hesitation in recommending Dovecote Barns.

What a lovely location to spend a short break with family. The Hay Barn is just perfect and has everything you need for lazy days and relaxing evenings. Ideal location for visiting York but allowing you to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Brigita has turned this into an idyllic retreat.
