The Details...

Easily accessible from York town centre by bus or car, Dovecote Barns is a collection of three lovingly restored self-catering cottages, accommodating six, four, and two guests in high-end luxury. Having been converted from 18th Century barns, the properties can be rented individually or as a group. Furnished and decorated to a high standard which stays true to the traditional aesthetic of the area, the Dovecote Barns are the perfect holiday cottages for couples, families and friends looking to spend time in the beautiful metropolis of York or dramatic hills of Yorkshire.

The Haybarn is an open gallery oak barn, and is designed in an upside down effect, with the three en-suite bedrooms found on the ground floor. Complete with luxurious John Lewis mattresses, two of the bedrooms can either be set out as super-king or twins to ensure flexibility and both have wet room en-suite bathrooms. The third bedroom boasts a king size bed while the en-suite has a bath with overhead shower. With a grand oak dining table which can seat a dozen guests, many parties booking all three properties treat this cottage as a base, allowing communal eating and drinking while retaining the privacy and comfort of multiple cottages. The Dovecote sleeps four in a three storey tower, with two en-suite bedrooms on each of the first and second floor with the option to create twin singles in the first floor bedroom. The Irishman’s Cottage benefits from the same light-filled high-ceiling kitchen style as the other two, but sleeps just two guests in a versatile super-king bed which can be converted to twin single beds. This cottage is wheelchair friendly so particularly popular with less mobile guests.

All three of the properties enjoy private outside spaces complete with barbecues, ideal for al fresco cooking and dining in the warmer months. Hand-built cabinets complete the farmhouse-style kitchens, which are finished with high quality granite worktops. Guests will be impressed with the range of culinary amenities which each cottages boasts, including SMEG fridges, microwaves, electric ovens and dishwashers. Although distinct in style and layout, all the properties have been designed to the same high standard, and benefit from wood-burning stoves and underfloor heating. No expense has been spared on the entertainment systems, including Netflix enabled Smart-TVs, Bluetooth sound systems, Wi-Fi superfast fibre internet, and a selection of games and books for those who like to unplug during their downtime.

The Dovecote Barns are barns whose pleasing layout and no-expense-spared finishes will leave guests at peace and relaxed long after their stay is complete. Well-located just 20 mins from York city centre for those wishing to take in the sights and activities of the ancient city of York while remaining at arm’s length from the hustle and bustle, The Dovecote Barns is the perfect self-catering getaway for both first time Yorkshire visitors and perennial holidaymakers. This culturally rich location is famed for its architecture, with many of its Viking and Roman sites still preserved. There is plenty to keep history buffs entertained, from York Minster, to the Jorvik Viking Centre, to the National Railway Museum. York Minster is the largest Gothic cathedral in Europe, while there is 3.4km of medieval city walls. There is also the Jorvik Viking centre and many ghost walks around this famously haunted city. Later enjoy a stroll by the River Ouse and its many bars and cafes by the waterside.

The cottages are served by buses from Selby and York. Across the road you’ll find the river Ouse, which provides a lovely riverbank walk to Cawood, with its 17th Century pub and local ales. We recommend day trips to nearby Castle Howard, Go Ape, the North Yorkshire Moors, and the unmissable Robin Hood Bay.
