The Durdle Door 3-Bay Dovecote - made in Dorset! A beautifully Arched Dovecote - available as 3-Bay and 6-Bay (see below). It doesn't have to have real doves to create a lovely garden feature on a wall, barn or fence. But, if you decide to add the real thing, then there is a spacious home for three pairs of gorgeous white garden doves.
The front panel can easily be removed for access to clean. Delivered ready assembled and easily mounted in place by screwing from the inside back panel into your wall.Dimensions (external):
84cm wide at the base; 45cm deep (front to back); 72cm high.
We use only FSC approved, joinery-grade, pressure treated timber for our Dovecotes with T&G 25mm Shiplap for the roof and 19mm T&G board on the vertical panels and floor. We apply a waterseal product to the roof boards before despatch but you can paint the Dovecote if you wish, just lightly sand the roof to remove the sealer and any good quality outdoor microporous paint will work well.
We advise an annual maintenance regime where it is cleaned out thoroughly and an application of wood waterproofer, like Protek Eco-Shield, is applied externally. With this simple maintenance your Dovecote will be protected against all weathers, and the pressure treated timber keeps out rot and fungal attack for 15 years.
The Durdle Dovecote will be delivered ready assembled.
