Specially Designed Nesting Boxes

Each Dovecote has six handcrafted independent nest boxes, a perfect home for six nesting pairs of doves or pigeons.

Just the right size for your Doves to build a nest without being too airy, too spacious and also providing adequate shelter from the wind and rain.

In addition to this, the nest boxes have a unique annexed nest area hidden around the corner from the door.

 

Independent Balconies

It’s important that Doves have their own space and to ensure that, each nest box has it’s own Balcony. The balcony allows the Doves to sit, take off and land.

You would find that if the balconies were joined together then the Doves would walk around from one balcony to another increasing the risk of fighting.

Farrow & Ball Paint 

All of our products are individually hand-painted by our painting team in our Lincolnshire workshop.

We have chosen a selected number of colours from the Farrow & Ball colour range.

These selected colours can be found on each product page.

FSC Approved Timber

Wood is the most imperative part of our products, we therefore ensure the wood we use is sustainable sourced.

To ensure that, we only purchase Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified timber.

 

Strong & Durable Dovecotes

Uniquely handcrafted using mortice and tenon joints to provide strong and durbale Dovecote structures.

Please note that all these sizes are estimates and do vary depending on your finial choice.

Freestanding height will vary slightly due the dovecote not being fixed into the ground.

All of our Dovecotes come either ground fixed or free standing allowing you to choose if you would like your Dovecote fixed in a particular location or have it free standing so it can be moved as and when required.

 

*** Please Note *** 

Our Dovecotes will arrive in two pieces when delivered. Due to Insurances purposes we are unable to provide an installation / assembly service. Please ensure you follow the Dovecote guide when installing. 

 

Freestanding

The Freestanding Dovecote allows you to be able to move the Dovecote as and where you wish.

Please read the Erecting your Dovecote Guide which provides all the information on how to fit your Freestanding Dovecote.

For your safety ensure there is a minimum of 2 people at all times when fitting the Dovecote.We do advice that you secure it down in case of adverse weather conditions.

 

Ground Fixed

Please ensure that the location of where you would like the Dovecote to be ground fixed is suitable for digging into the ground as on average you will need a depth of around 3ft to securely fix the Dovecote into the ground.

Please read the Erecting your Dovecote Guide which provides all the information on how to fit your Ground fixed Dovecote.

For your safety ensure there is a minimum of 2 people at all times when fitting the Dovecote.

How are your Dovecotes made?

Each of our bespoke products is crafted using handpicked sustainably sourced FSC certified timber from our local timber merchants.

The timber is treated for wood knots and then painted in exterior primer undercoat followed by a minimum of three coats of Farrow & Ball exterior eggshell paint of your choice.

We use traditional carpentry methods from start to finish taking pride in delivering high quality British crafted garden products.

 

How are the Dovecotes painted?

All of our bespoke garden products are individually hand-painted using the traditional wooden paintbrush. This begins by undercoating each product using an exterior primer undercoat.

What are Dovecotes?

A dovecote is a structure designed to house doves, pigeons, and other small birds dependent on your own preference.

These structures provide a safe environment for pigeons to nest in, as well as create a clear home base for the birds, this encourages them to settle and make a dovecote their ideal home.

For more information please view our blog article by Clicking Here.

 

Do I need to assemble the Dovecote when it is delivered?

Our Dovecotes will arrive in two pieces when delivered, the post and the main Dovecote structure.

Due to Insurances purposes, we are unable to provide an installation/assembly service.

Please ensure you follow the Dovecote guide when installing. 

 

Do free-standing Dovecotes require a base?

A flat and stable base will be required for the Free-standing Dovecote to sit on.

 

What is the lead crown on the Dovecote?

We add a hand dressed lead crown to all of our Dovecotes. A lead crown is a covering of lead that is applied between the roof and the finial of the Dovecote preventing water from getting into the roof.

Once applied, we then coat the lead in Patination oil. We do this because when newly fitted Lead is exposed to moisture, it builds up a natural patina in the form of soluble white lead carbonate. Future exposure to rain will wash the carbonate onto adjacent materials causing unsightly staining or discolouration.

Patination Oil is a white spirit based surface treatment that prevents white carbonate from forming on the surface of newly fitted Lead and reduces the risk of staining to adjacent materials.

Do I need to secure down a free-standing Dovecote?

Our Freestanding Dovecotes have been specifically designed so that the supporting legs are equally proportional to the height of the Dovecote which prevents the Dovecote from falling over during everyday British weather.

As the British weather is very unpredictable, during times of extreme weather or areas that we very windy you could secure down your Dovecote if you wish.

Our current Dovecote range is suitable to house 6 pairs of Doves.

3 reviews for Fantail Bespoke Hand-painted Wooden Dovecote

  1. Susan P

    The service from start to finish was outstanding, nice to see a company that still offers a high quality and personal service for all of its clients. We were looking for a bespoke Dovecot for over a year that would suitably situate in our court yard. The freestanding option looked amazing in the middle and prevented us having to dig up the ground. Would like to thank Dominic and the team for their advice throughout, their blog articles also offer some insightful information too. Thanks again Sue

  2. Helena Catherall

    Made to a first class standard by obviously caring craftsmen, we were absolutely delighted with the result. It now stands proudly at the end of our garden and is wonderful to view each day. Lucky birds!

  3. P Morris

    We were so thrilled when the dovecote arrived, its truly stunning and every fine detail is considered. It a major talking point for anyone that comes to visit and we look forward to moving the doves into their new home! tyvm x
