Group of Cottages

Dove Farm cottages offer all the benefits of staying in a big party house, with the added bonus of  being able to enjoy your own private space too, in one of our 3 well equipped, self contained cottages. A versatile group accommodation for families and friends. Ideal for family gatherings or getting together with friends. Perfect for hen groups, walking groups or retreats. And you get to stay on a farm too!
This group of 3 holiday cottages are barn conversions, created from our old dairy buildings. Together with dove studio dining room, the cottages form a small, self contained complex. They are all next door to each other, and all open out onto a shared patio garden with BBQ. Level floor surfaces. Accessible accommodation. No steps in general access areas. See our Access Statement for more information.

Ideal large holiday cottage for extended families,  and parents with young children, as the adults can relax in the enclosed garden area, and keep a watchful eye on their children at the same time. We have a useful supply of books, toys and DVDs to keep younger children amused too. Accommodation and holiday cottages close to Alton Towers and Cbeebies land if you have time to plan that into your short break. You might need to stay for longer!
Enclosed garden area helps make us pet friendly too.
