Set in a wonderful secluded valley down a mile long private drive with a private indoor pool and games room, Dove House sleeps 13 in 7 en-suite bedrooms. A wonderful house for large groups of family and friends to enjoy time together away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Swallows sleeps 4 in 2 en-suite rooms and is near to Dove house but totally private so it can be taken separately or together making a venue for 17.
We had a fabulous week at Little Dove when restrictions limited us to 6 people. Fabulous location with plenty to do even in lockdown. Super tennis court and swimming pool as well as a perfect games room away from the main house. Excellent walks all around but at the same time close to Dorchester as well as a short drive to the coast. Dove House itself is perfectly organised with everything needed and very comfortable- felt like home from home. Will definitely try to go back and have already suggested staying there with friends and would also love to stay there with a bigger group.
Swallows is situated in beautiful, peaceful surroundings. There are interesting local walks and it's ideally situated for visiting the coast and other areas of interest.
The accommodation is cosy and comfortable, a lovely place to return to after a day out. It's furnished and decorated to a high standard, well equipped and spotlessly clean.
This was our third visit to Swallows but the first during the pandemic however we felt reassured by all the thought and care Pippa had put into making the cottage covid safe for her guests.
We're very much looking forward to returning next year.
