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.

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.

"Great location, friendly owners and lovely cottage- Perfect!"

We booked a last minute break to Dovecote Cottage which was excellent value for money. There were 4 of us and my 2 year old son. The outside space and surrounding land were great for my son to run around and play. There was plenty of space to sit out and enjoy the sunshine! the area is very peaceful and a great base to explore the local area. We enjoyed trips to West Midlands safari park, worcester, stratford upon avon and a few others. The owners are so welcoming and very informative about the local area and places to go. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could need, we especially liked the little cool box provided for the many picnics we went on! Overall I would highly recommend this place and would definitely return
