The Dovecote is a particularly special compact and cosy studio style home situated in the heart of the Cotswolds town of Woodstock. The building was originally a stone-built 'Dovecote' from the 1700's which would have demonstrated the wealth and magnificence of the landowner. Beautifully converted into a studio apartment, the Dovecote retains original features.

Upon entering the home through a private, tucked away courtyard you are greeted with a compact kitchen with everything you would need for a short or long stay in Woodstock with electric hob, a fridge with ice compartment, microwave and a selection of crockery. The breakfast bar can double up as a work desk. On the ground floor you will also find a bathroom with a walk-in shower, wash basin and WC. The Dovecote also benefits from a separate utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

The winding, spiral staircase takes you up to the first floor where you will find the bedroom area furnished with a cosy double bed, wardrobe space, a flat screen TV and a window with a wonderful view.

The home benefits from a private courtyard garden with outdoor seating, the perfect place to relax, after a busy day exploring. The home also has off-street parking for up to two cars.

Florence - Feb 2024 - Air B&B

We loved our stay in the Dovecote, it was small but perfectly equipped with all we needed. The location was a little tricky to find in the dark, but brilliantly placed to surrounding village and palace gardens!

Amelia - Dec 2023 - Air B&B

Perfect cozy little space in perfect walking distance from restaurants and right across the road from Blenheim walking areas. Lovely and quiet and just what I needed for a relaxing break.
