Dovecote accommodation

The Dovecote accommodation

Accommodation - B&BSee Self Catering

The Dovecote provides luxury accommodation over 2 floors.

The upper floor is lined with 200 nesting boxes – it is now a beautiful bedroom for 2 people with lovely views over the garden and the open countryside.
The room can be either twin or double (with a superking sized bed).
The bedroom has a remote controlled colour TV with DVD and iPod dock.
There is a selection of DVDs for your use.

Downstairs there is a double shower room and living area, with a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.
If you wish to make light meals there is a fridge, a 2 ring hob, a combi-microwave oven and a toaster.

Outside, guests have the use of a private south facing terrace and can relax in our garden, which includes a Georgian walled kitchen garden, lawned areas and a wildlife pond.
Your room will be available from 4pm on the day of arrival.

We have off road parking, so you can leave your car and use the Hadrian's Wall Bus (AD122) (which stops at the end of the lane) to explore the area. We also have a lockable cycle store.

Rooms in the Main House

Rooms are available from 4:00pm.  Check out by 10:00am

There will definitely be someone here from 4pm and usually a lot earlier (if there is no answer at the house please try in the garden across the road). If you arrive early and we aren't in then you are welcome to go in the garden and sit in the greenhouse or outside depending on the weather.
