Our shops are all located in the towns and villages of the Vale of Belvoir, including Stathern, Bottesford, Cotgrave, Melton Mowbray and Asfordby.

Our four hospice shops in Stathern, Bottesford, Cotgrave and Asfordby have a varied selection of high-quality women’s, men’s and children’s clothes and accessories, plus DVDs, books, toys, games, puzzles, homeware and pictures. Our store in Melton is a dedicated children’s shop selling kids’ toys, clothes and books, plus maternity wear and baby gear.

We’ve always got new things coming in so the best thing to do is pop along, check out what’s just arrived and grab yourself a bargain. We regularly update our Facebook page with what’s hot to trot so have a look at us for the latest additions to our clothing, leisure, kids and home collections.

A lot of our shops have great ideas for gifts, dress-up for nights out or kids’ parties, and things like vases and picture frames that can be painted, decorated or upcycled to make the perfect addition to personalise your home – we like to think of it as ‘Pre loved…..by Dove’. We’d love to see pictures of anything you’ve had from us and re-styled – email them to nic@dovecottage.org

We have changing rooms in all our shops, apart from Melton, so you can give the clothes a go before you decide to buy, and, what’s more, at our Stathern store you can relax with a cup of tea and a slice of cake while thinking about what other bargains we can tempt you with!

Our shops are run by a fantastic team of managers and friendly volunteers, who deliver a wonderful service to all our customers; they are ready to welcome you to the Dove Cottage charity shops.

Dove is often my only trip out during the week. I really appreciate the social interaction and support, both from the staff and the amazing, inspiring people around me. I know that my husband also enjoys his day to himself knowing I’ll be well cared for.
