Doves Barn Cottage
8 bedrooms, sleeps 22

This country retreat is an ideal choice for families and friends to get-together and celebrate a special occasion.

Doves Barn dates back to the 16th century and is a detached, Grade II listed barn, brimming with charm and character. Boasting original oak beams and timeless charm, yet perfectly mixed with modern day comforts. There is a vaulted ceiling criss-crossed with exposed beams in the living room, and the large inglenook with wood burner to provide the warmest of invites. There are eight bedrooms in total, including two galleried bedrooms. With plenty of space for guests to celebrate a special occasion, and yet still have the opportunity to enjoy the escape from everyday life pressures, and simply sit back and relax in the peaceful surroundings. Nestled within two acres of extensive grounds, Doves Barn offers spacious accommodation that is well furnished for comfort and enjoyment.

Relax and enjoy your own six person hot tub and a large courtyard garden with a choice of two patios, great for those al fresco dining opportunities. Whatever the season, Doves Barn will provide you and your guests with the warmest of welcomes.
This is a great location that is close to all the necessary amenities and an excellent base to explore the rolling countryside and unspoilt coastline.
