We booked this barn for a week away with 4 other couples and their children, 22 of us in total and we were all amazed at the space, facilities and how it suited our needs down to the ground. We stayed Friday to Friday during the April school holidays and were blessed with some very good weather for April, which...

What a fantastic place! Its is a stunning building with clean and comfortable amenities. We were welcomed by the Owner Nev and he was friendly and very helpful. The hot tub is now in a soundproofed shed and is very hot and very clean. The 15 minute walk to the local Neddham Market was enjoyable and had a few interesting...

Omg what can I say.... I cannot recommend Doves Barn highly enough. The perfect place for a Christmas gathering, the barn was made for this as far as I'm concerned. I actually got very emotional as I first came in through the kitchen as it was better than I ever imagined. The Barn caters for both young and old with...

Fabulous Weekend Break   We decided to book a large property for friends and family to celebrate my joint birthday party with my twin brother in September. Doves Barn looked spacious on the website and on facebook but it is so much bigger and the images does not do it justice, what you see in real life is far superior....

Booked this place for a family weekend away for around 22 of us. When we got there have to say the place is really big and spacious and was very clean. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms to cater for all of us. The outside space is really good however have to point out the pond is a big downfall...

Visited Doves with a large group of family and friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. Lydia, Eleanor and Neville couldn't have been more helpful. The barn is beautiful and spacious. It's extremely clean and perfect for large group gatherings.

Just returned from a brilliant family gathering at Doves Barn celebrating our Golden Wedding. A beautiful building full of character, lovely outdoor spaces, well equipped with plenty of "extras" for all the family, including a hot tub, karaoke, pool table, table tennis, chess and many other games. The many rooms are all tastefully decorated and all done with much thought...

I came to this beautiful spacious and well equipped house with 15 (mixed age 18-56) other women for a hen weekend. The house was beautifully set out in a rural location with bedrooms both upstairs and down. These included some with en suite some Double and some twin . One bedroom had a double bunk bed which was interesting !...

I was surprised how lovely and clean everything was and impressed by the number of bathrooms there were. Some of the rooms are en suite and there are extra other bathrooms at both ends of the house in addition to that. There are several downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms (one with cot) for those who struggle to get up stairs, there...
