A super looking MEDIUM SIZED dove cote.

Fantastic addition to any garden.
Can be supplied with or without its own pole & fixings.

The pole is 3 meters long. The total length including the dove cote is 4 meters, however we recomend that the pole is sunk 1 meter into the ground, which would give a total height of 2 meters to the underside of dovecote and 3 meters to the top.

If you would like to collect your dovecote in person please phone to let us know. We hold many of the houses in stock, and lots will fit in the back of a family car, fully assembled or flat packed. The dovecote will fit in most cars. The top can be supplied with or without the pole. The pole is too long to fit in most cars.

This is a large heavy item and cannot be delivered by courier. The price quoted at checkout is for delivery by our own team. Please note the delivery price is for delivery of a fully finished dove cote, and if ordered, the pole and fixings, but we do not install this dove cote. You will need to organise for the pole to be sunk into the ground.

We have a unique range of poultry housing developed through nearly 35 years of experience. All are made in high quality materials and to precise specifications which we have found to provide the most convenient, comfortable and vermin-proof accommodation possible. All designs take careful consideration of :

• The internal positioning of perches, popholes, droppings boards and nest boxes.
• Accessibility, both for you and the chickens.
• Ventilation without draughts
• Weather proofing and stability in windy conditions.
• Weight and manoeuvrability.
• Vermin control.
• Aesthetic appearance.

Many sizes and configurations of poultry housing are available and we are able to incorporate bespoke customer requirements in some models.
Most are produced with Onduline roofing sheeting. This is a washable, light-weight, hard-wearing bitumen board.
Designed by us, built by us, delivered by us. We have never made houses or coops for anyone else!
A note about wooden houses:- Timber has character and charm and that is why we like working with it. But it is a natural product subject to variations such as shrinkage when it is hot and dry, and swelling or expansion when it is persistently humid and wet. Our carpenters have used their expertise to built tolerances into the designs to accommodate most situations, but you may still observe occasional seasonal and weather movement in the timber. Our head carpenter selects timber carefully, and it will still have some character features such as knots. Our carpenters try to position these so they look great, but don’t cause problems. You might find though, that over time a smear of mastic will be required here or there to re-seal any areas where water seeps in. Before delivery the wood parts of your house are treated with Timbertex by AquaTec Coatings Ltd. This is a water based stain and protection specially suitable for pet and animal houses. It doesn’t last forever though, and you should consider painting with a good quality treatment annually to maximise the life of your new house.
