Trip Advisor Travellers Choice - Best of the best

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.
