We have just got back from 5 days spent at the dovecote barns. There are 3 barns there, the irishmans, the haybarn and the dovecote. We stayed in the dovecote and it was beautiful. It is incredibly well finished, with super comfy beds, powerful showers and a kitchen to die for!
Brigita the owner was very welcoming and very helpful during our stay. The other guests who were staying in the other 2 barns left the day before us and Brigita showed us what the other two were like. They are all amazing and are the perfect getaway.
I cannot recommend Dovecote highly enough, we will definitely be returning. We did enquire about a trip at Xmas but unsurprisingly they are fully booked. We will be back though.
