The barn is absolutely beautiful, even bigger than I imagined & myself & 21 others had the best weekend ever staying here end of Oct 18.

I was very surprised to be told they supplied some coffee, milk, tea bags, bin bags, etc and they had a few finishing touches such as a welcome hamper that I thought was really sweet.

There’s a games room with a pool table, big connect 4 and a karaoke machine which were really fun! The hot tub is lovely and a lot bigger than expected!

Organised my wife's surprise 30th party here and have to say it was perfect. The communication and setting was excellent and made for a memorable weekend. We were all blown away by the size and setting. Shame the website doesn't show more. Highly highly recommended.

We came for a friend’s 30th last weekend and had the most amazing time
The house is incredible, well furnished and beautiful throughout.
Having the entertainment (pool table, karaoke machine) is brilliant and the hot tub is just the icing on the cake!
The little welcome basket and personalised welcome note from Neville and Eleanor was a lovely touch, and they were so friendly and welcoming.

I Would highly recommend to anyone !

The only thing I would say is the WiFi doesn’t work in a lot of the house, but to be honest who needs it when you have the beautiful house, gorgeous grounds and you’re with family / friends !

I came to doves barn last weekend to celebrate my mother in laws 70th birthday.
All I can say is wow - amazing place, lovely grounds and all rooms were lovely - whatever room we would have ended up with we would have been happy!
There was 15 of us most the weekend and 20 at one point and was plenty of space for everyone and was so spacious!
On our arrival Neville was so welcoming and accommodating and helped us with anything we needed and Elenor came and introduced herself to us later on too and they were both very friendly and would be happy to help with anything.
The only thing I will say is that the WIFI only worked really in the kitchen or outside in the seating area.
