This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


The Dovecote is a great choice for a romantic break with walks by the riverside and a superb, private hot tub for total relaxation.

Set within the owner’s 230-acre arable farm, these outstanding properties are decorated to a high standard, and each boasts a large open plan living area. There are goats and chickens on the farm, so if you are up early enough, you can help yourself to some fresh eggs or take a look round the stables. Guests have access to the 230 acres of land, which includes the River Avon, where you can do a spot of fishing (licence required). Take a walk through the farmland and you reach the local pub, which is situated on the bank of the river. The farm is also 2 minutes away from the Bristol and Bath cycle track, perfect for cyclists and walkers, and the property is close to Saltford Sailing Club.

Surrounded by open countryside, Saltford is also known for its history and has a conservation area with a restored brass mill (dating from 1720), an old manor house and a church with a Saxon tower. Just 6 miles away is the vibrant heritage city of Bath, which boasts the famous Roman baths, Thermae Bath Spa, and the famous Royal Crescent, which is one of Bath’s most iconic landmarks. There are also several National Trust areas nearby including Dyrham Park and Stourhead House. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    Amazing place, very relaxed holiday even though we were Xmas shopping. Decor first class, little things like tea, coffee, bread and butter waiting for you, even a wine rack with an honesty note. The hot tube was lovely, even at 6:30 pm on a cold November night.

    A lovely place - beautifully clean on our arrival and the best equipped self catering accommodation we’ve ever stayed in! The surroundings were tidy and very pretty - the river makes for a nice walk. I’ve given the location an 8 as farm vehicles do pass the cottage regularly (it’s on the outside edge of a working farm yard). Whilst this isn’t a problem, occasionally they do go at some speed which isn’t ideal with dogs around! Nearest supermarket is about 10 minutes drive away - I wouldn’t walk it if you’re planning on buying anything heavy! Add ons at the accommodation are very reasonable - £5 for a bottle of wine and £5 for an extra bag of wood for the fire. Overall, we would highly recommend.

    A bread knife and blinds over the bed would change the equipment evaluation to 10

    Very clean, modern cottage with a couple of nice touches, bottle of wine, milk, butter etc. The fencing around the hot tub was not completely private, with vehicles coming and going and parking near to fence.

    What a wonderful place to stay. The Dovecote was everything we expected and more. Perfect whether staying to relax or as a base for exploring.

    Superb location & accommodation. Great space & surroundings. Loved this property & will be staying again. The only advisory would be that this is a working farm so it doesn’t always feel particularly private during the day. Whilst everybody is friendly there are lots of comings & goings. Personally this didn’t bother us but may be a consideration for others.
