The Dovecote Barns is the perfect place to unwind and relax in five-star luxury of these peaceful converted eco 18thcentury barns. Whether you are a couple looking to get away from it all, or a group of friends or family wanting to have your own space but come together to dine and socialise, the barns offer it all.
There are three barns that retain all the original features whilst offering contemporary interiors. Each bedroom is en-suite and most of the bedrooms are either zip-linked super-king beds or can be split into twin rooms. This offers great flexibility for both family and friend groups.
Based on the edge of a beautiful rural village adjacent to the working arable farm, you can either wander through the fields or down the riverbank to the historic village of Cawood, or, hop on the bus or drive just 8 miles to York city centre, centre of historic and cultural Yorkshire.

All barns have been devotedly restored and include hand-made country kitchens with granite worktops, all en-suite bedrooms with luxury John Lewis mattresses and individually designed contemporary bathrooms, log stoves and under-floor heating. They offer the highest standards of attention to detail, comfort, fittings, furnishings, art and design. Each barn has its own private garden area with barbeque for dining al fresco.
