Our family rented the Hay Barn so we could have a holiday and all stay under one roof for the first time in several years. Booking sight unseen from another country could have been a disaster, but as another reviewer said, this is one of the few places that looks *exactly* like its photos! It was an absolutely beautiful accommodation... More

We have just returned from a weekend break at The Irishmans Cottage and what can we say, except perfect! Thank you Brigita for a wonderful welcome. The cottage is perfect, every home comfort you expect and more. Loved the welcome hamper with essential goodies and the prosecco tasted even better drunk outside in the wonderful garden in the sun! Unbelievably... More

We were fortunate to spend a week in 'the Hay Barn' at the start of July. The accommodation is truly stunning - and Brigita an absolutely perfect host. From our initial on line enquiry, to our friendly welcome ( and lovely goody basket ! ) Brigita could not have been more helpful and approachable. The accommodation is truly 5 star... More

We stayed in the Hay Barn, 3 beautiful bedrooms, all with ensuites. Loved the design, with the bedrooms downstairs (saves lugging suitcases upstairs). Located in a quiet and peaceful village, not far from York, We especially loved the freshly baked bread - couldn't get enough of it. Highly recommend this place to anyone not wanting to stay in a busy... More

We booked this self catering place for two families, and were well rewarded for our choice. It would help to have a car as it's about 30 minutes drive to the city. There is a bus that runs hourly to the city if time is not a problem. The fittings are excellent and the huge dining cum living area on... More

Wow. I couldn't have asked for a better pre wedding night accommodation if I tried. Gorgeous location. Stunning buildings and fitted out with top quality goods. These barns are stunning and it was perfect for all of us to gather together and spend the night together with a BBQ and beers before the wedding. Please note, location for us was... More

We stayed in Dovecote which felt like home from the moment we were greeted by Brigita (and chickens) on arrival. The barn is spotlessly clean and finished to an excellent standard. The welcome basket was full of high quality goodies and the toiletries in the ensuite bathrooms were a welcome addition. The bedrooms were cosy with plenty of storage space.The... More

We really don't know where to start!!! Amazing would be the word we would use! It's our first time @ Dovecote but certainly not our last. Brigita's warm friendly welcome was so lovely you felt like you had been there many times. Our welcome basket was such a gorgeous idea & the eggs & bread were certainly the freshest &... More

So glad we stumbled across Dovecote Barns whilst looking for accommodation in or around York! I can only echo previous comments and if you're looking to go then definitely go! Set in beautiful surroundings and only 20 mins from York. We don't usually return to places but this is one property I would surely visit again Thank you Brigita for... More

We have been to the Dovecote Barns three times now and stayed in all three barns which are all excellent. Every barn is fully equipped, beautifully furnished and most importantly of all, spotlessly clean! It's a great location, only a 20 minute drive into York but there are also nice restaurants nearby if you don't want to go into York.... More
