Eleanor de Goni Parks purchased this barn in 2000

Why Eleanor de Goni Parks chose Needham Market

We loved living in Doves Barn, but when the children left home the property was far too big for us. It dates back to the 16th Century and has amazing authentic features and a magical atmosphere where you will feel immediately relaxed as you enter.

What makes this barn unique

The property is semi rural with open spaces, countryside and beautiful views. Doves Barn is a very spacious property, so although we have up to 22 guests staying everyone has plenty of room to spend a quiet moment or join the party.

We would recommend this property for all your special occasions from family celebrations, birthdays, Hen Parties, rural retreats (bird watching) or simply spend time at Doves Barn to relax and unwind. Please see Trip Advisor for all our great reviews from our valued guests.

Very special weekend, perfect barn!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for a 25th birthday/ 10 year reunion and couldn't have asked for more! The accommodation was perfect down to the finest details! The grounds are amazing too and the hot tub, ping pong table and outside seating are the icing on top!

All 25 of us had a very special weekend!

Brilliant barn for large group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a special birthday weekend, we had 19 adults so also used the adjacent property, Doves barn cottage. The barn is fantastic for large groups and we had loads of room to be together and also have our own space. Facilities include hot tub, karoke, pool table and giant connect 4 - all of which were used:) We used a local caterer for a served dinner on Saturday and that was just lovely. This is the place to stay if you want a special location for a large group. The owners were so helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. Christmas decorations were up so all made the weekend magical
