The Dovecote was a wonderful place for our family to get together, we loved everything about it. It was decorated to a very high standard and had everything we needed. The coal fire in the lounge was perfect for cosy family nights in and hiring the hot tub just made the stay extra special. We will definitely be recommending Dovecote to friends and family!!
Mrs McGrath

The location of The Dovecore is picturesque, idyllic village with two cracking pubs and the benefit of the facilities in Richmond just a few miles away. The warm greetings we received from the owner, reassured us that we had made the right choice, the owners charm and character was an added bonus to our stay
Miss Cooper

It was a nicely presented house with a lovely log fire and hot tub! The land around it was great open space, especially for kids. The owners were very easy to deal with and flexible which was helpful. Lots of glasses, plates etc which was handy. Lovely location and reasonable price. Milk and biscuits were nice touch too.
Mrs Prunty

"We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were extremely welcomed by the owners and would go back again."
Mrs Lehrle

Brilliant walks, extremely friendly and helpful hosts. Excellent local pub close by offering fine food and drink! Highly recommended for the perfect break.
