About & Contact

Large luxury cottage with private indoor pool

Designed to cater for every need of both family and adult groups, at any time of the year, this spacious and comfortable holiday cottage provides lavish accommodation (7 en suite bedrooms) with the bonus of exclusive use of a fabulous secure heated indoor pool and games room.

Situated in the middle of a family working farm and at the end of a mile-long private drive with walks straight from the door, the cottage is a real escape from the frenzy of normal life, but close enough to reach all the local attractions, walks and stunning Jurassic coast with ease.

Dove House is hugely popular for special occasions with its fabulous big sitting room and kitchen. The holiday home is perfect for both adult and extended family groups of all ages. We have fabulous caterers who will work to suit your personal needs/budget along with many excellent local places to eat. 

Dove House has exclusive use of games room and indoor pool and may be booked with Swallows for a larger group of up to 17 guests. An outdoor tennis court is available to guests along with a children’s play area, at most times of the year there is also access to a covered table-tennis table, shared with Swallows.

Reviews for Dove House at Dove House & Swallows

Meet the owner

Pippa James

Pippa James was born on the farm, she now lives on with her husband, Hugo, who also grew up farming locally. Part of a larger family estate, which they have farmed for many generations and feeling lucky enough to be in one of the most lovely places in the country to live, she has never felt any desire to be anywhere else in the long term. Sharing this hidden treasure with their guests gives them great pleasure.
