Lovely property in great part of the country
Property great. Location excellent. Hostess lovely, All good!

5/5 Excellent

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dovecote. The location is great, with many lovely walks nearby. The local pub the Greyhound Inn does amazing food. We had good weather and had great fun swming in the pool. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was clean, modern whilst retaining the original features. Good WiFi connection and great that you could log into your Amzon Prime and Netflix account via the TV. One of our favourite things was to sit by the brook at the end of the garden with a cuppa, watching the wildlife.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing break
Very relaxing break away in the beautiful Dovecote, the cottage is lovely and Elspeth has catered for your every need. The garden is so peaceful and we were fortunate to have good weather so we made the most of it. The Greyhound pub two minutes walk away did lovely food and a great Sunday Lunch. Would really love to come and visit again sometime. Thank you so much Elspeth
