We’re straight ahead as you enter Fearrington Village

Over 30 years ago, Jenny Fitch renovated the former milking barn of the Fearrington farm and opened Dovecote in this unique space. Over the years, the store has morphed from a charming garden shop into the one-of-a-kind shopping destination that it has become today. In addition to our signature items carried throughout the year, our seasonal Trunk Shows and Pop-Up Shops further enhance our shopping experience with even more extraordinary finds.

Our boutique shop Dovecote located 8 miles south of Chapel Hill in Fearrington Village on US 15-501 and minutes to Durham, Cary and Raleigh. While at Fearrington, enjoy lunch at The Granary, coffee next door at The Goat, browse our independent bookstore, and treat yourself to a Spa treatment!
