The Dovecote – A lovers Retreat

This glorious open plan contemporary cottage has everything you need for a romantic retreat near both cities Bristol and Bath. Surrounding by acres of beautiful scenery the Dovecote has it’s own private heated hot tub within the outdoor patio area for you to enjoy all year round! The accommodation comprises stunning open plan lounge, dining and kitchen with vaulted ceilings & wood burning stove, king size bed in the bedroom with en-suite shower room.

The kitchen area is equipped with all the amenities you’d expect from a luxury holiday cottage for cooking and washing, including a dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, cooker and hob.

Eating Out

Whilst on holiday at Avon Farm you have fantastic facilities, but you deserve a break from cooking, if you need any suggestions please check out our Things to Do page or your Welcome Pack supplied at the cottage also lists eateries and attractions in nearby Bristol and Bath.


The Dovecote has parking for two vehicles outside.  There is a small courtyard garden area with a dining and seating area, and the hot tub. Please adhere to hot tub instructions located in the welcome pack.

Guests have access to the entire Cottage and may go into the 15 stables, take a look at the goats, and chickens on the farm. If you are up early enough you can even help yourself to the fresh chicken eggs. There is a communal children’s play area and picnic bench, plus plenty of walks for dog lovers on the estate or along the river. We have also secured fishing rights for our stretch of the river on the farm, a short walk from the cottage.

If you wish to book a holiday stay at Avon Farm with a larger group of family members or friends we have 4 other rental properties, all close to each other, please just contact Clive or Serena via email or telephone: 07391 675499 to enquire about this group booking.

Shared Space at Avon Farm Estate

The Avon properties share the 230 acre grounds, certainly enough space for everyone! There is an outdoor Children’s play area, Fishing on-site (free of charge, but need to ask for a licence). There are chickens located beyond the car park (you may help yourselves to eggs) and a goat to observe and feed (within reason) – please ensure you supervise any children feeding the goats, clear any litter dropped and do not feed the horses as they are not not ours… You are more than welcome to pat or stroke a nose though as they’d love that! Be aware with little ones that there is an unfenced river in the ground.
