Stoke Bruerne an idyllic Northamptonshire canal village

Everything about the Dovecote  is new. Built in the grounds of the 17th Century Dove Cottage, it provides modern living within a beautiful conservation walled garden. Situated right in the centre of Stoke Bruerne you will be less than 1 minute from the picturesque Canal lock and hostelries on the Grand Union canal and just 15minutes away from Silverstone and Towcester. 

More than a Bed and Breakfast (Bnb, B&B) and quieter than a hotel the Dovecote holiday cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, dining table and garden patio.

Very handy for Silverstone events and Towcester races, and the village events held in Stoke Bruerne and Blisworth. 


Double Bedroom , En-suite shower, fully fitted kitchen, lounge diner.  Underfloor heating, digital TV,  Wifi, parking space. 


Grand Union canal and Stoke Bruerne canal museum, Blisworth tunnel, Towcester racecourse, Silverstone race track, Althorpe House, Whittlebury Hall, Stowe Gardens, Boat Inn, navigation Inn, Spice of Bruerne.

Brilliant cottage, lovely people, amazing location! Aug 2017

Stoke Bruerne is an idyllic village with two pubs, an indian restaurant, great atmosphere and a canal. What more could a traveller to the heart of England ask for? The hosts are just fantastic - friendly, accommodating and flexible. The accommodation is smart, stylish and well equipped. The wallpaper (an OS map of the area) above the bed is particularly good and the ensuite is great. Dedicated parking in what is a "compact" village is also a plus...

A fantastic location for Silverstone. Feb 2018

A great little self catering cottage, furnished inside to clean contemporary standards, bedroom, en-suite, kitchen diner and wifi; what more do you need? Finished on the outside with tradition stone to blend in with its charming old English hamlet surroundings and situated a stone's throw from the canal and pubs, with a great gastro restaurant 5 mins drive up the road.

A fantastic location for Silverstone and other local events, run by a great couple who live in the gorgeous Dove Cottage just across the garden. Highly recommended!
