  • "A lovely family reunion in a very comfortable, well equipped house."

    The garden was smaller than appeared in the photo but with 2 handy play areas in the village the children were well catered for.

  • "Beautiful house."

    Fabulous decor throughout. We loved staying there and very close to our friends that live near by. Property was very spacious and clean. Very quirky. Beds were super comfortable. Bathroom was huge and loved the shower. Private parking in gated courtyard kept cars safe. Owners restaurant across the road is superb. Portions were huge. Few things that would’ve improved our stay would have been a downstairs toilet instead of having to go upstairs, another tv perhaps in the kitchen/conservatory so the oldies can watch one while the teens watched something else and a couple of items that I missed in the kitchen was a potato peeler and a potato masher. These would have improved our stay but it was still excellent and we will not hesitate to return again.

  • "We stayed in September 2023 for four nights."

    The cottage was large and well laid out with four good sized bedrooms an plenty of seating in the lounge. There are a number of steps inside the property so perhaps not so suitable for the less able. However ideal for our stay. Lovely conservatory attached to the kitchen provides a great additional socialising area. Well fitted kitchen with good fridge freezer made it easy to cater for ourselves when we wanted to although would benefit from a coffee machine. Excellent meal at owners' nearby restaurant - La Anchor and a number of local country pubs nearby.

  • "Absolutely lovely stay, large enough for two families to stay comfortably."

    The property was clean and kept to a high standard. The owners and their family were incredibly welcoming and very helpful too. The restaurant La Anchor across the road is definitely a hidden gem too.

  • "As a group of friends we tend to book a cottage close to Christmas for a pre get together."

    This one was convenient as it was closer than our usual destinations. It most certainly did not disappoint. From the very off the owner was very attention, nothing was too much trouble for him. He went above and beyond to make all 6 of us feel comfortable. The house was immaculate and very well equipped with all the mod cons. The log fire was great given how cold it is in December. The beds were extremely comfortable. The area is nice, quiet and relaxing. There is an Italian restaurant over the road which I would highly recommend. La anchor. Overall I cannot complain about absolutely anything. We’ve had a wonderful time and most certainly will love to return. Thank you to the owners for the personal touches. This place is a hidden gem.

The property

Snaith 3.8 miles.

Nestled in the quaint village of Hensall in North Yorkshire is Dovecote Farm House.

This charming property makes for a spectacular holiday setting thanks to its contemporary interior that has been seamlessly blended with original features such as exposed stone walls, exposed beams, woodburning stoves and feature fireplaces.

After exploring the surrounding countryside, cross the threshold into the spacious entrance hall and kick off your muddy boots before heading into the fully-equipped kitchen to prepare a hearty meal.

Enjoy this together with a group at the dining table before stepping outside to soak up the last of the sun with a glass of wine in hand; on colder evenings snuggle up in front of the warming woodburning stove and flick on the TV.

Later, climb the stairs to wash off the day in the bathroom before retiring to one of four bedrooms; choose from a king-size with en-suite cloakroom, two doubles or a twin.

Adjacent to the property is the owners restaurant, the very popular LA Anchor Bar and Restaurant, a stylish setting with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, serving Italian cuisine by Italian chefs, booking is recommended!

Dovecote Farm House lies close to the town of Snaith which houses convenience stores to ease your self-catered stay and a couple of pubs perfect for treating your loved ones to a delicious meal.

The property is surrounded by a wealth of attractions; head into Pontefract to tour its impressive 11th century fort or Castleford to treat the kids to a day of fun at Diggerland.

York is just a short drive away; allow yourself to be charmed by its cobbled streets before roaming York City Walls, the National Trust site Treasurers House and Clifford’s Tower.

The city also has a fantastic selection of bars and pubs such as Evil Eye, The Habit Cafe Bar, and Dusk, ideal for those seeking a more vibrant nightlife.

Although slightly further afield both the Peak District National Park and North York Moors National Park are easily accessible by car and provide a wealth of walking, hiking, and cycling opportunities with chances to admire breath-taking views across the English countryside.

Make memories at Dovecote Farm House.
