Inspirations

The Dovecote Barns is part of the following Inspirations:

Ten of the Best Group Getaways by Amanda Statham

"There’s a ‘posh party pad’ feel to these three barn conversions, which sleep two, four and six people. The open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, which flow effortlessly into each other, are the perfect space for group gatherings, particularly The Hay Barn where you can fit up to 12 people around the dining table. The barns may date back to the 18th century, but inside they’re thoroughly modern, with under floor heating and en suite bathrooms for every room. And with the historic city of York on your doorstep, you won’t be short of places to sightsee - or places to eat and drink."

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.

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hay Barn - which exceeded expectations.   Lots of lovely little touches in the decor, very much a 'home from home' and a perfect location for our far flung children to come and spend some time back together as a family.

Comfortable beds, and everything I needed in the kitchen for a 'Masterchef' moment as other family members joined us for a celebration lunch.

A special 'thank you' to Richard for his wonderful home-made bread, quite delicious.

Had a wonderful stay at the Hay Barn. It was beautifully and comfortably furnished, location was excellent, and Brigita's home baked bread was delicious. Can definitely recommend staying here. We particularly liked the design, with the bedrooms downstairs (easier than lugging suitcases upstairs).

This is true 5 star accommodation. Everything has been thought of to make you feel totally at home. The location is lovely and the attention to detail in decoration and finishing touches is perfect. Everybody really friendly too, can't wait to go back.
