  • "This was our fourth stay at the Dovecote."

    It is very comfortable, quiet and well equipped. The owners are friendly. We had dinner at the Five Bells in Bassingham, and are happy to recommend it.

  • "Extremely clean, and well maintained."

    Beds were super comfy! Everything you could possibly need during your stay was provided. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage to others.

  • "We had a lovely week."

    Cottage was excellent - the kitchen was well equipped, bed super comfortable and the whole house had everything we needed. We didn't see the owners but they were only next door if we'd needed anything. The only slight negative thing was that I thought the fridge was a little small for 4 people. The steps between the lounge/kitchen are a bit uneven, although that is mentioned in the listing. It was well located for Lincoln (we went twice) to see the Guildhall tour, castle and cathedral. Also visited Belvoir Castle, Burghley House and several National Trust houses. Also the IBCC, Newark and Lincs aviation Centres. It is very rural, though next to the A46, so you would need a car but I would definitely recommend and go back if we wanted to visit that area again. Also, the butchers in Collingham is excellent too.

    The specification is of the highest quality. The main roads are easily accessible which gives access to a number of places in different directions. Highly recommended *****

  • "We had a lovely stay at Dovecote Field House Farm."

    It was easy to find and plenty of places to go without travelling too far. The kitchen is well equipped if you decide to cook, we did twice during our stay. The oven was about 10° lower in heat than the one I have at home but all worked well and plenty of utensils stored in the cupboards and drawers. Comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and fluffy towels. All very clean tidy and cosy. We visited; Lincoln Cathedral - absolutely awesome! Belton House - very lovely with very nice grounds. Gainsborough Old Hall - fabulous tudor house well worth a visit very interesting. Southwell Workhouse - impressive lots of information and very well worth a visit.

    Everything we could think of needing (and more) was available and included in a very clean and modern space. Very welcoming hosts who responded quickly to our questions before arrival. Particular thanks for being so accommodating to our 2 year old who loved seeing the tractor at work almost as much as his grandad did! We hope to be back soon

  • "Really lovely accommodation, well thought out in a pretty location."

    Hard natural slate floor in kitchen/dining area is gorgeous, however if any of the party staying have any balance issues it is worth noting that this floor is uneven by design. We have suggested that a higher 2nd bracket for the hand shower attachment in the upstairs bath be provided to enable adults to shower upstairs, especially useful if there are 4 adults occupying the cottage. The owners are lovely and very helpful. Would absolutely recommend this cottage. We had a fabulous time there. Two couples meeting for a weeks holiday.

  • "An excellent cottage."

    A lovely old building from the outside, inside it's very attractive too. Its spacious, modern, comfortable and well-equipped, everything was in top condition and spotlessly clean, with well thought out detail, for example, ample good quality towels of different sizes for each person and plenty of power points in handy places. The owners were very considerate and helpful.

    We couldn’t hear any traffic from A46 at all. Owner responded very fast about the washing machine. Only one comment that the downstairs toilet seat n cover are loosen. Overall a very positive and happy stay we enjoyed.

  • "We loved our stay at Dovecote Field House Farm."

    The kitchen was really well equipped and the cottage was clean and in great condition, very cosy. As another recent review has noted - the kitchen now has a dishwasher, so this could be added to the information about the cottage. It's a great location - only a short drive from all amenities in Newark, and we also went to a lovely pub in Norton Disney on the Saturday night (booked taxi), only 10 minutes' drive away. Would definitely stay there again.

    Perfect for our needs with all mod cons provided. We could not have been happier with the accomodation and wish we could have stayed longer.

  • "Lovely clean property in a quiet location."

    It felt homely and relaxing each time we arrived back from a trip out. A good base for seeing the area and travelling around. A new RSPB reserve (and many others) almost on the doorstep and pubs, takeways and a small co-op supermarket in Collingham, (the next village) made shopping for food easy. Train station there creates direct easy access to Lincoln and even Nottingham. Small outside seating area made a nice sun-trap to sit out and eat/drink.

The property

Collingham 3.2 miles.

Proudly positioned within the grounds of the owner's farm within the sleepy hamlet of Brough, you will find Dovecote Field House Farm.

Renovated to a high standard with attractive and contemporary interiors throughout, this former Dovecote makes an excellent setting for two couples or a group of four looking to escape to the Nottinghamshire countryside.

As you step inside this warm and restful home, be sure to admire the character and charm of the exposed beams that line the ceilings, before turning on the sleek electric fire and snuggle up to loved ones on one of the cheerful yellow sofas as you scan the Smart TV for all of your favourite shows.

Climb the pretty stone steps up to the kitchen/diner where you prepare many delicious meals with the help of the handy electric oven and hob, for all to indulge in as you gather around the table and delight in a tasty bottle of wine.

Continue the evening's festivities with drinks out in the private courtyard as you chat amongst friends about your upcoming adventures and raise a glass to making new happy memories with loved ones.

Back indoors, a gorgeous super-king-size bedroom served by a bright and contemporary shower room completes the ground floor.

On the first floor a sophisticated twin room can be found excluding lots of natural light from the Velux windows and original Dovecote panel that decorate the high-vaulted ceilings.

Continue across the and discover a beautiful bathroom with a luxurious corner tub with hand held shower - perfect for relaxing with a long evening soak, following an action-packed adventure exploring the local area.

Set back from the hustle and bustle of the city of Lincoln, the neighbouring village of Collingham is home to both a Chinese restaurant and a friendly local pub where you can delight in a more relaxed night out, or pick up ingredients from the local supermarket if a quiet evening indoors is calling your name.

Wander along the banks of the pretty River Trent to the town of Newark and see the incredible cascading waters of Newark Trent Waterfall or the imposing architecture of Newark Castle and Gardens, a must see during your stay.

Spend the day in the city of Lincoln and enjoy tours of the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, the famous Castle Walls and the magnificent 11th century Cathedral that give Lincoln its city status.

Visit Pottergate Arch and the ruins of Lincoln Medieval Bishops' Palace, or explore the great outdoors with an afternoon hiking through Greetwell Hollow Nature Reserve and Whisby Nature Park, where you will be treated to spectacular views.

Catch a train to Nottingham or Leicester for a spot of shopping and a hearty lunch in one of the many eateries, before stopping off at landmarks such as the Chinese Bell Tower and Castle Motte.

Make the most of precious time with your nearest and dearest on an unforgettable holiday to Dovecote Field House Farm.
