Inspirations

Ten self-catering escapes for spring by Dinah Hatch

"Let’s go mad in Dorset…Crunch along the mile-long drive lined with lime trees and grazing sheep to reach rambling Dove House, which sits within 1,000 acres of Dorset farmland and woods, interwoven with walks and cycle paths. The house , which sleeps 13 in seven en-suite bedrooms, is made for large family and friend gatherings, with a beautiful, huge and very social kitchen/dining room in painted oak with white stone tops plus three ovens, a six-burner hob and two dishwashers. This leads into a south-facing patio and garden. Oh, and did we mention there’s an indoor swimming pool, kids play area, tennis court, badminton and croquet facilities, games room, visiting spa therapist, open fires (all fuel included) and pre-ordered home cooked meals if you can’t be bothered to toil in the kitchen? Happy holidays…."

Review of Dove House & Swallows

Posted on by Andrew CCustomer stayed Mar 2018

100%

Our first stay at Swallows. On arrival we received a warm welcome.
Friends joined us so we were two couples. The two double bedrooms with their en suite facilities are at each end of the property. The living, dining and kitchen area is central and this works very well.
Well appointed and clean. Delightful sunny garden. Private parking for 2 cars.
Excellent walks right from the front door. Short drive to Dorchester. Plenty of local pubs for lunch.
Highly recommended!

Swallows: Stunning driveway, lovely location, so quiet and full of wildlife. Cottage was amazing, full of everything we could need, well enclosed garden great for little ones. Lots of lovely country walks right on the doorstep - we will definitely be back.
