Testimonials

Katie and Steve

We just want to say the hugest possible thank you for providing us with such an amazing experience on Saturday. I'm finding it hard to put into words how impressed everyone was with your venue, staff, food, drinks...the list goes on.

It's a really difficult thing to achieve, and you guys seem to do it naturally and effortlessly because you genuinely love and enjoy the whole experience. There is no sense of pressure or rush, every single person who needed to contact you did so with ease and it was all just a lovely thing from start to finish.

Anyone who uses your venue is in for a treat, you really do it all so well. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for just the most cracking time ever.

Grace and Lewis

It's been two weeks since we married at Dovecote Barn and we haven't stopped talking about it!

We want to say a HUGE thank you to Mel, Matt, Nicky, Tom and the rest of your team for being absolutely outstanding throughout the whole run up to and on our wedding day.

I remember visiting your wedding fair this time last year, the minute we were shown around the venue, I knew it was something special & special it truly was.

To arranging all the appointments, planning, food tasting and final arrangements, you made us both feel so at ease knowing it was all in hand. Although the rain came to say hello to us on our big day, the staff looked after us and all our guests amazingly. Our guests continue to tell us just how organised the day was, polite and friendly all the staff were, how delicious the food was (hats off to the chef!) and just how stunning the venue is! We cannot thank you guys enough and will continue to recommend you to other bride and grooms to be!

Laura and Ben

Thank you so much for everything the whole Dovecote team did for our wedding. Everyone said how wonderful the food was and how beautiful the venue was. Myself and Ben had the perfect day and I just wanted to say thank you so much for that.

"Dovecote Barn really was the perfect venue for our perfect day! It's such a beautiful space, and all the staff were very helpful throughout- from planning, to helping us decorate the day before, to making everything run smoothly on the day- we were very relaxed and could just enjoy our wedding without worrying about anything! Everyone loved the food, too, and the children especially enjoyed the outdoor space. Thanks to all the fantastic staff for their help!
Best wishes, Zoe and John"

"It's been nearly 3 weeks since our wedding here at Dovecote Barn and I am still flying so high from what truly was the most perfect day.

Throughout the whole build up Ben and Louise were there to answer all my crazy questions, and bent over backwards to make my creative visions a reality...even spending nearly 4 hours up some scary looking scaffolding to hang my feather chandelier creations!

My husbands favourite Cornish beer was sourced and served, the food was perfect and everybody has since said it was one of the most fun weddings they have been to. The staff at Dovecote made every effort to make our guests feel totally welcome and comfortable even though we maxed out the capacity and it was raining...I wouldn't change a thing! Knowing that they had everything under control while we had an amazing party was priceless :)

Thank you to everyone at Dovecote.
Lots of love Elle & John xxxx"

"If we could give more than five stars to Dovecote Barn, we would. I booked Dovecote Barn for my 40th Birthday party on 4th October 2014 over a year ago. However, 8 weeks ago my Boyfriend proposed and after discussion it was a consideration to get married with only a handful of people knowing and add it to the already planned party and conduct the whole ‘Secret Wedding’ at Dovecote Barn. We were not optimistic as it was only a short period of time to plan a Wedding, so consulted Louise at Dovecote. From the minute we discussed our plan Louise she was enthusiastic and supportive. We managed to arrange a Registrar and a further meeting later a Wedding was organised. I can honestly say Louise and her team made the process so easy. Without their approachability and professionalism I don’t think our ‘secret wedding’ would have been possible. Our wedding ceremony was in the perfect rustic surroundings with the feeling of intimate warmth. Louise and her team ensured everything went to plan in order for the surprise to our party guests went without a hitch. The ‘surprise’ worked perfectly and this was all down to Dovecote Barn and the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the evening was a perfect success. Our guests are still complimenting us on our beautiful venue and I am so pleased we chose Dovecote Barn and will be recommending it to everyone we know. Thank you Louise, Andrew and staff for making our Wedding Day a memorable one.

Mrs & Mrs Bell

"WOW - what a perfect wedding day we had at Dovecote Barn. It ticked all the beautiful cliché boxes, to name a couple "perfect and the best day of our lives". Dovecote Barn is a stunning location for a wedding. It is set on many acres of land, but still manages to create warmth and intimacy throughout. Louise and Ben are not restrictive in imagination and enjoyed working with our ideas and helping us bring them to life. They don’t flinch at hiccups and aim to resolve them immediately - all with a smile on their faces’.
The food was simply delicious - catering for all styles and all dietary requirements. The catering staff were friendly and we enjoyed them being around - they're a complete credit to Louise and Ben.
If we could do itall over again at Dovecote Barn, we wouldn’t hesitate a second!
Thank you again Louise and Ben and everyone else that contributed to our magical start into marriage.
Warm regards, Mrs & Mrs Bell. x"

"As soon as we met with Louise and saw the barn, we just knew that Dovecote Barn and Bo Peep Farm would be the wedding venue for us. And we weren't disappointed - Louise and her team helped us every step of the way, making recommendations where needed and passing on their invaluable advice. Our questions were answered quickly and efficiently, and our ideas were treated with warmth and enthusiasm. On the day itself, the team went above and beyond in looking after us and our guests - our wedding day was just perfect!
