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.
