“So so lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Wow, we had just the most wonderful honeymoon here. The cottage is so beautiful and well thought out, with so many nice little touches. How amazing to have your own hot tub too! Phil and Zoe really went the extra mile to create a really special week for us. And, my forgotten nightie was posted back to me when we got back (thank you very much Zoe and Phil!)

We returned yesterday after one of the best weekends we have had for many a year, the Dovecote is special, very special. Just read all the other comments and yes we endorse all whats been said.
Phil and Zoe make you feel so welcome from the moment you arrive, the touches they employ within the Dovecote is something you must experience for yourslves.

Are we planning to return sometime in the future? YOU BET WE ARE.

We have just got back from our honeymoon at the Dovecote and it truly is as magical as the descriptions here show. Whatever the weather did, Dovecote had it covered...if it was warm the BBQ and delightful and relaxing hot tob (with champagne glasses to use in it provided) was perfect and when it was cold and wet then there was nothing better than curling up in front of the raging log burner. It was just perfect for a special week away, and the welcome given by Zoe and Phil made it that little bit extra special. Be warned though it is secluded and that means a drive down some windy narrow country tracks (not for the faint hearted but well worth it).

It is hard to find the words to describe the Dovecote and the best ones we can think of are that it is a like arriving and staying in a 'little slice of heaven'. We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was the best decision we made, we could have been anywhere in the world it was so totally amazing. We stayed from Mon to Fri and the whole time we were there we did not see a soul, Zoe and phil (owners) have captured romance, tranquility and relaxation and poured it into the Dovecote. When we arrived there was champagne, chocs and roses the candles were lit and Zoe and Phil gave us instructions for the hot tub and info on nice walks and restaurants we could try,they put us totally at ease and made sure we knew that we could text or ring at any time with any problems, although they live next door you would never believe it as we did not see or hear them the whole time we were there. We spent our evenings in the hot tub drinking bubbly and then by the open fire watching films or just enjoying the beauty of our surroundings, the bed was so comfortable it just swallowed you up and we slept like babies. When we went out during the day we would return to the fire having been re-built, candles replenished, clean towels and the dishes dried and put away!! There are some stunning walks from the Dovecote, we went to Lamorna cove and it was beautiful, there is a waterfall down there and it really is magical. We could have quite easily parked the car up on Monday and not used it again till the Friday to go home. Zoe and Phil have thought of everything there is a gas bbq on the decking by the hot tub which we put to good use. No amount of photo's will ever do this place justice because you cannot get the feeling of it on a photo. If you are after a romantic getaway or just some time away from the hum drum of everyday life you will most definitely get it here, we cannot wait to return. It is the most relaxing, peaceful, romantic, cosy place with the most stunning of views that we have ever experienced. Zoe and Phil make you feel so welcome and this adds to the feeling that you get, you have to experience the Dovecote just once in your life because it will totally blow you away. Thanks Zoe and Phil, after a wedding which was just perfect in every single way you provided us with a honeymoon which was outstanding and we left with some life long memories which will remain with us forever.

I don't usually take the time to write on these forums but after just finishing a midweek break at The Dovecote cottage I wanted to say we had a fantastic time and it was everything we were looking for. The cottage was cosy, peaceful, very romantic, and an ideal place for a romantic getaway. Phil and Zoe made us feel very welcome, and went out of their way to make sure we had the perfect holiday. We would love to return back to The Dovecote or try the new Lamorna View.

The dovecote was the perfect retreat for our honeymoon. Arriving at this beautiful little cottage tucked away in picturesque countryside overlooking the sea, and greeted by a roaring open fire, burning candles and lots of special touches by the owners Phil and Zoe, if this place doesn't capture your hearts then I don't know what would! An impressive four poster bed, natural stone and beams add to the rustic features inside...and then outside you can soak in the hot tub under a starry sky drinking bubbly! What could be better?
Add to that the care and attention of owners who really want their guests to have the best experience possible and you are sure of a fantastic stay and a desire to return!
Thank you Phil and Zoe for making our honeymoon very special!

Booked this cottage for a romantic weekend and it did not dissapoint. The cottage was lovely, the views were brilliant and the owners were extremely helpful. If you are looking to get away from it all with your partner this place and part of the world is second to none!
