“A Great Place to stay in South Notts”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

I was travelling in the Midlands and found this beautiful property in the village of Sutton Bonington within easy reach of both Nottingham and Loughborough and the M1. It is a converted barn and is very well appointed and well run as a boutique B&B. A beautiful room and an excellent breakfast was enjoyed. I would certainly return.

Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

Doing the university open days meant a long journey from home to Britol uni and up to the Nottingham uni in one day, so arrived late, tired, and very travel weary. Expecting a standard welcome and room, was greeted instead by David, with smiles (a large pot of hot tea .....!) and introduced to our room. Actually, really should say mini flat .... We had our own lounge, sofa, tv, dinning room table and chairs, double bedroom, dressing area, curtesy tea tray in case I couldn't wait for Dave to arrive, a lovely bathroom which included a working jacuzzi. Breakfast was served in our lounge, fruit, yoghurts, tea, juice, cooked breakfast and a selection of toast and preserves. The attention to detail is everywhere. Even some magazine to read..... Plenty of toiletries ...and it was with a new spring in our step that we set off the following day. Hate to share this gem of a place, but it is money well spent. Hope my daughter gets to go to Sutton Bonnington so that this isn't my only stay!

We stayed one night last weekend whilst visiting our daughter at the Sutton Bonington University Campus.

Beautifully appointed room with excellent furnishings and a very comfortable bed. First class breakfast and warmly welcoming hosts.

Will definitely be returning.

Website not currently working so just phone instead.

We stayed a night while attending a wedding at Sutton Bonington hall which is a very quick walk away. David was a great host, the room was luxurious while homely, the breakfast top notch. Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ground floor room has the most incredible jacuzzi bath and separate power shower!

We stayed here when attending a wedding at nearby Sutton Bonington Hall. We were sorry not to be able to stay longer or take advantage of the lovely courtyard and breakfast. Unfortunately we literally dropped our bags prior to the wedding and slept in the bed at the end of the day before having to leave at 8 am the next day to meet the rest of the family.

The property is furnished to a very high standard with lots of quirky items decorating the suite. I loved the little dog by the bedroom door. Everything appears to have been thought of from nice toiletries in the bathroom to the offer of fresh milk for drinks.

David, the host is very friendly and is obviously eager to make guests feel cared for during their stay. Unfortunately as we live locally it is unlikely that we will have the chance to stay again but will defineatley recommend this place to family and friends staying in the area.

There has been problems recently with the Dovecote Barn website so would recommend that you call to discuss your needs.

Tucked away in the village of Sutton Bonington, Leicestershire, the accommodation in this Guest House is unbelievably luxurious. The Hosts really care for the welfare of their guests and I had a wonderful one night's stay for a family wedding. The bed was extremely comfortable, the food excellent, and the hospitality second to none. I was sorry my stay was not longer, but I will definitely stay there again, when a suitable occasion arises. I am also telling my friends, family and acquaintances about this little gem of a Guest House.

Room Tip: The ground floor suite is so spacious and comfortable. Like being at home. I accidentally clicked...

My husband and I had one night at Dovecote Barn when we were meeting up with family who live in the area.
I cannot say anything negative about the accommodation at all. Everything is finished to a very high standard. The suite we had was very clean, comforable. The hosts were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent.
It's a pity we were only there one night.
