Welcome to Dove House & Swallows
Two Award Winning self-catering houses nestling in 1000 acres of Dorset farmland. Just 5 miles from Dorchester and 10 from Weymouth; a perfect location for a family holiday, quiet break or special celebration.
These beautiful old barns were restored in 2000 to the highest standards, with quality fittings throughout. Both Dove House and Swallows are located at the end of a mile long, private, tree-lined drive.
Dove House sleeps 13 in 7 en-suite bedrooms. There is a large, enclosed south-facing garden with patio and barbecue area. A covered portico with seating attaches the house to the fabulous indoor heated swimming pool exclusively for Dove House guests. The house is spacious, peaceful and luxurious making it perfect for larger groups and ideal for a family holiday or small company training retreat. (VisitEngland 5*Gold)
Swallows is designed for 4 people to share in comfort and is furnished to the same high standard as Dove House. It is on one level, with easy access for those with more limited mobility and a beautiful peaceful enclosed garden. Swallows is totally separate and private from Dove House, but it is just a short walk when they are taken together. Swallows has one double and one twin/double bedroom, both are en-suite. (one small dog allowed!). NB: Swallows does not have access to the indoor pool or games room unless taken with Dove House. (VisitEngland 5*)
Together: The two houses can be taken together to accommodate a total of 17 guests and 3 babies. Dove House is fully equipped for this number to eat and socialise together.
There is also a hard tennis court that can be used by prior arrangement available to both properties. (see note below)
N.B: Between February and May half terms 2016 we plan to resurface the tennis court, this will mean that at some stage it is not available to our guests but as it is weather dependant we cannot predict exactly when. Therefore if booking during this period please be aware you may not have the use of the tennis court.
