"Couldn't recommend dove farm cottages highly enough. We booked all three cottages and the studio room for my hen party. It was just perfect - a world away from city life. We loved feeding the goats and donkeys and meeting the doggies, who were just lovely. Jane was helpful throughout, from the moment of booking. Thank you for helping us make some wonderful memories x (Cherie and the girls)

17 of us celebrated a Hen Party at Dove Farm and we had the most incredible time! From the moment of booking Jane was so helpful in providing recommendations and was very responsive with all of our questions. All of the cottages and communal space were perfect to host everyone with everything we could possibly need! I would 100% recommend Dove Farm to anyone looking to organise a Hen Party / other celebration or space to gather as a large group of friends / family.

Wow! What fabulous cottages to stay at for my daughter's family hen weekend. They were a real home from home and so well equipped - everything had been thought of. Having the studio was a real bonus and provided us with a spacious room to meet up in. The courtyard area is a real suntrap and so pleasant to sit out in - all 3 cottage doors open onto it. Jane was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and went above and beyond to make our stay so special - I can't thank her enough. We had a wonderful time and I would thoroughly recommend Dove Farm Cottages to everyone.( Joanna H)
