  • Great classically themed, modern house! Home away from home.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this weekend at The Dovecote. From the beginning Mel was both accomodating and welcoming, helping us by being flexible in terms of timings when possible and also welcoming us with some homely treats left in the accomodation. My partner and I wanted a long weekend (Friday to Sunday) away to relax and unwind and The Dovecote provided just that. There were plenty of things to do around the area, but when we got there the weather was dreadful so we were just as content staying in and relaxing by the woodburner with a glass of wine, some home cooked meals and telly. The bed is extremely comfortable (didn't want to leave it) and such a lovely rain shower. The house was surprisingly very warm, with only needing to put the fire on when we first arrived, and turn up the floor heating. For the days after we did not need to light the fire again as the floor heating was enough for a very toasty environment. I would recommend stocking up on supplies before arriving to allow for full enjoyment if not wanting to leave the house, as the supermarkets are a little bit of a drive out. All in all we really enjoyed our trip, and will definitely be making a return. Thanks Mel!
