We stayed at Dovecote Barns in the Dovecote and it was lovely. The place is really welcoming and the standard is first class and the barn had everything you could wish for. Brigita is very helpful and full of lots of information about the area.

We hired the Grand Barn for 10 which included the annex. The place is simply fabulous. It's tastefully decorated, it has bells whistles and more bells and I would happily move into the kitchen (with its 3 ovens, two fridges and more than everything else ) to live. Two lounges. Big dining space. We got a great welcome pack of tea, coffee, eggs, jams etc for when we arrived. We also ordered four fabulous meals from Brigita (who cannot be more helpful) and I'd really recommend these also. They were delicious. It was an easy drive into York for our Saturday and a lazy sunny walk along the riverbank for our Sunday. We are already making plans to return

I was lucky enough to have recently stayed with 15 friends in the Grand Barn and The Haybarn to celebrate my 50th birthday. The accommodation was stunning, the nicest place we have ever stayed and trust me there have been quite a few over the years! Beautifully decorated with luxury furnishings and very comfortable beds, immaculately clean. A very well equipped kitchen in The Grand Barn and welcome hamper on arrival was a lovely touch. We received a warm welcome from Brigita on arrival 🙂 This would our top choice for another stay in York in the future. We hope to see you again sometime Brigita! Thank you Kerry

Had a fabulous 4 night break in the 2 bedroom barn. . Accommodation is outstanding with lots of attention to detail, very homely, with everything you would need. Brigita the owner a lovely lady & nothing is too much trouble. Barns are ideally situated & York is only a short bus ride away ( 25mins ) & bus stop is 2 minute walk. Lovely walk along the river to Cawood ( next village ) which has a great deli with indoor seating - food was excellent. Ordered through Brigita 2 evening meals from The Deli to save us cooking - fabulous tasty food - the lasagne was amazing the best we’d ever had. We would definitely return & highly recommend. Lovely welcome hamper on arrival too, with locally sourced products & home baked bread.

We ( a group of 15 ladies) spent the weekend here celebrating our friend's 50th birthday! Quite used to staying in a range of accommodation with the ladies over the years, I have to say that this was the best! From the moment you arrive, it is like stepping into a beautiful magazine : what a treat! The interior is faultless and stunning - everything had been thought of. It was immaculate, cosy, luxurious, spacious, inspiring - I could go on! Brigita, our host, was so friendly and on hand, had we needed her for anything - but we didn't as the attention to detail was phenomenal, leaving us free to enjoy our stay - which we certainly did!! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dovecote Barns to anyone looking for a luxurious stay close to York!

Brigita is a very welcoming host and this was an excellent choice of venue for our family get-together! We were staying in the Dovecote and were immediately impressed not only by the excellent quality of the accommodation but also by how very well equipped it is! Nothing is too much trouble for Brigita and a lot of thought has gone into equipping the barns with good quality fixtures and fittings and with lots of thoughtful little touches not always evident in a rental property. The games room was an additional bonus! The Dovecote Barns are well located for visiting York and the East Riding and there are a number of excellent places to eat nearby. We were delighted with every aspect of our stay and would not hesitate to recommend the Dovecote Barns!

We went to the Dovecote barns for my sisters Hen party and we couldn't have asked for much more. The accommodation looked exactly like the pictures, the place was done up to such a high standard and Brigita was really helpful. If you are looking for somewhere to go with a group of family or friends, I couldn't recommend this place enough. Thanks Brigita - we will be back!

We recently stayed here for my 50th birthday celebrations and I have to say that Dovecote Barns was perfect in every way! We stayed in the Grand Barn which was spectacular. Absolutely everything was pristine, so well thought out, beautifully designed and all five-star quality. Brigita was wonderful from start to finish and the booking process and checking in was seamless. The accommodation is stunning, from the extremely comfy beds with their best quality linen. Beautiful designed bedrooms and bathrooms , comfy sofas and dining areas. The kitchen is breathtaking and absolutely everything has been considered, the utensils, appliances, crockery and cutlery would rival any Michelin star restaurant. The small village of Carwood is delightful and we walked into the village for a meal at The Castle Inn (extremely good) We enjoyed our stay so much we would highly recommend of Dovecote Barnes To anyone looking for a fabulous place to stay close to York. We also had lovely welcome basket which included local produce and a bottle of Prosecco such a lovely personal touch thank you Charlotte Tara Corby and Poppy

Wow wow wow! The Grand Barn is something else. A group of friends stayed for a hen weekend & we were blown away by everything. It was so modern, clean, & everything was high spec. Nothing was too much trouble for Brigita who was always to hand should we need anything. I have been telling everyone about it and can’t praise it enough. We shall be booking again.

Had a lovely 3 nights in the Irishman’s Barn. Extremely comfortable and well equipped. Superb bathroom, in fact the whole place was superb. Brigita was so welcoming and helpful but also left you to enjoy the peace and quiet of the place. Lovely private outside seating was perfect for catching the late afternoon/evening sun. Wish we had been staying for longer.
