“A little sanctuary”
Reviewed August 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautifully peaceful place. Just what we needed after 2 full on week's travelling around. Duck pond right outside the door of the Dovecote provided hours of entertainment for everyone. So much wildlife to see there. Grabbed a glass of wine and just sat and soaked it all in. The Dovecote is well equipped, clean and very close to Tewksbury and Cheltenham. Stow and Bourton were an easy and scenic drive away. Farm Shop within walking distance, providing local produce and lots of big supermarkets with close driving distance. This is a quirky little place which we have loved relaxing in. Yummy cake provided on arrival too!

“Delightful Dovecote”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A delightful, modernised dovecote in peaceful surroundings next to a duck pond. Absolutely idyllic and perfect for a weekend or a week's getaway. A unique property - very homely with everything you could want in a holiday let. Very comfy beds. The owner gave us a terrific cake which we enjoyed over the few days we were there. Easy reach of great pubs and Tewkesbury itself which is a beautiful town full of history. Lots to do in the area and definitely an area we would go back to. We were there during the Medieval festival which was great fun and had a wonderful atmosphere. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended property, modern ,comfortable and homely too. What a treat we had.

“The Ideal getaway”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Jut what we wanted - all with amazing sunny weather in early April...

The very friendly owner Helen only needed the arrival "hello call" as everything was spot on

We sat out admiring the swans on the duck pond - we bbq'd & made good use of the spotless modern kitchen. Highly recommend & hope to return again soon.
And yes - the cake thing is jut a lovely touch! (& was yum)

Great for exploring Cotswolds
Check out the very local Odda's chapel for a walk down the river..

“Amazing”

The Dovecote was a beautiful place to stay it has been lovingly converted and has everything you could need for a relaxing time. The pond outside the property was lovely to sit and watch the ducks and Kingfisher that came each afternoon during our stay. The home made cake left for our arrival from Helen was amazing and greatly appreciated by my husband. We couldn't fault anything and would thoroughly recommend to family and friends.

“Peaceful haven”

person found this review helpful

The beautiful Dovecote was a peaceful haven in a delightful spot. All the comforts of home and a much needed retreat from England's busy roads and crowded tourist hotspots. Our family of four (two young adult offspring) from country Australia felt very at home and all rated the cottage very highly. Special mention - bird life on the pond and the delicious home baked cake.
