Dormston is a delightful hamlet set in the heart of the gently rolling Worcestershire countryside not far from the border with Warwickshire and laying between the Cathedral City of Worcester and Shakespeare's Stratford on Avon. The nearby village of Inkberrow is said to be the inspiration for Ambridge in the long running radio classic “The Archers”, along with its pub also “”The Bull”, and where “Archers” memorabilia photos adorn the walls and show Moat Farm with cast members outside being used as a backdrop to depict Brookfield Farm.

Dovecote Barn is a recently converted dwelling finished to a very high standard and beautifully situated in the 13 acres of pasture and gardens surrounding Moat Farm a remarkable grade 2* listed moated farmhouse dating from the 16th century and of considerable architectural and historic interest. The barn is blessed with delightful aspects overlooking the farmhouse and next to a 16th century Dovecote. The barn is equipped to a very high level with good quality beds and bedding, a full complement of crockery, utensils and appliances, and quality entertainment systems.

Dormston is a very convenient springboard for many of the attractions the Heart of England has to offer.

"What a wonderful place!"

We had a lovely weekend at Dovecote Barn. The setting is idyllic, with charming villages and pubs around and a barn set in the grounds of a beautiful old house with huge grounds on which to roam. The cottage itself is small but very well furnished and with a lovely main living space in which to spend any rainy time. We'd come again!

"Complaint :)"

As a female solo traveller looking for a countryside retreat to stay with my dog, I would like to share with you my recent experience at Dovecote Barn. I was pleasantly surprised to find the place so easily, and I was warmly welcomed by both Peter and Judy on my arrival. The cottage was very well presented and the range of supplies provided was more than I expected - just everything you need when you get off the road. The large comfortable beds were fitted with only the best quality linen, and I found myself wanting to stay in bed most mornings! The owners welcomed my friends & family who came to visit, and we were not short of entertainment. The cottage has games, cards, Sky TVs, DVDs, wifi and music speakers, and you are only a short drive away from Stratford Worcester & Cheltenham. I discovered, here you have the best of both the tranquil countryside and the life of nearby cities. You can enjoy peace without feeling isolated. Oh and a short walk away is a lovely country pub that warmly welcomed both me and and my pup and always remembered our names. My dog was far too busy exploring the moat and acres of scenery to spend any time with me! Peter and Judy were surprisingly always on hand when you needed them and never intrusive. Peter kindly drove my friends & I to Cheltenham racecourse with great 'door to door' service for less than a taxi cab. My handbag also broke and Peter kindly fixed this for me without delay - what a star! I stayed for 10 very relaxing days and I can't wait for my next holiday so I can book again. I entitled this review 'complaint' because no one properly reads the good reviews. However, my complaint is simply this.... No other cottage is going to live up to my stay at Dovecote Barn as now my expectations are set very high. Anywhere else I book in future will simply be a disappointment. Thank you Peter and Judy for hosting a wonderful cottage :)

Kim, thank you so much, really appreciate your very kind review and hope to see you again in the future. love jude

Sorry about the teabags! We do try to leave a good range of basics - sugar,salt,pepper,herbs,etc. Unfortunately we must have missed that the teabags needed replenishing. You just cant get the staff!!!

"Beautiful barn, fantastic location and lovely owners. Stay here!"

We had a fantastic weekend here, the surrounding area is beautiful for walking. We ate in a nearby pub which was also lovely. The Barn itself is immaculate and very cosy. The kitchen was well equipped, and the bedrooms were spacious and homely. The owners themselves were incredibly friendly and helpful, despite us changing the number of people staying on almost weekly basis ! The only very minor point was the shower is over the bath so you can't stand up to shower - but that just cut down the time people hung about the bathroom which was good for our large party ! Would definitely stay again.

"Great cottage. Great hosts. Great weather"

A thoroughly enjoyable late summer holiday. The cottage was perfect and a super base from which to tour the area. Peter and Jude were very pleasant hosts who also gave us very useful suggestions for places to visit and my wife and I have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.
