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

It's a pleasure to write a review on The Dovecote Barns. We were 3 couples, specifically looking for accommodation with 3 double rooms with en suites and, by crickey, we hit the jackpot here with the Hay Barn! 3 wonderful bedrooms with generous en suites, and a lovely top floor open plan kitchen/dining/living area ideal for the evenings after a...

We found this little gem on the Britain's Finest website while looking for somewhere to stay self-catering not too far from York. When we had a question before booking Brigita was quick off the mark to respond with the information we needed. On arrival day, we sent Brigita a text message (as requested) when we were about 30 minutes away,... More

Finding suitable accommodation for a large family celebration was proving very difficult until a random search of the internet returned details of Dovecote Barns. The three properties - the Haybarn, Dovecote and Irishman's Cottage - were furnished to the highest of standards and offered the flexibility needed for an age range of 5-80 years, but with the bonus of allowing...

This was our second trip to Irishmans Cottage in less than a year. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, warm and immensely welcoming. We arrived to find a welcome basket with eggs, bacon, milk.......all the essentials. As a couple who had been on a carb free diet for two months - that freshly baked loaf didn't stand a chance. Brigita is... More

We stayed in the Irishmans during September and had a wonderful relaxing break. The accommodation was 1st class; finished to a high standard with everything we required. The welcome basket on arrival was a treat with lovely fresh produce; fresh baked bread, eggs etc . The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and happy to share their local knowledge. The... More

Booked the Haybarn and Irishmans for Christmas for a festive family break. Both barns were decorated beautifully with real Christmas trees and festive decorations. We took the opportunity to visit York and the designer outlet, both a short drive away or there is a bus service a couple of minutes walk away. Brigita, the owner provided welcome baskets with fresh... More

We stayed in November and had a brilliant stay. The accommodation was to the highest standard in all aspects. The kitchen was fully equipped and had everything you could possibly want. We loved the welcome basket on arrival and the fact that our shopping had been out away already. We had 3 children in the party and they were catered... More

Last month I enjoyed a lovely long weekend with my (adult) family in The Hay Barn to celebrate my 50th birthday. The accommodation was perfect for our group of 5, with 3 comfortable bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. The living-area upstairs was very spacious and the kitchen was extremely well-equipped. We especially enjoyed eating dinner out on the patio, and... More
