The Local Area
The Dovecote is situated at the edge of the North Bedfordshire village of Harrold and is close to the Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire borders. The river Great Ouse runs along one side of the farm and the local area is very attractive with stone built cottages and ancient churches. Harrold itself has a picturesque village green complete with lock-up and butter market. The country park at the far end of the village offers space to walk and bird watch. After your stroll, there is a cafe offering good lunches and a choice of local pubs.
