“Perfect!”
Reviewed February 20, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Stayed in the Dovecote for a couple of days over Valentine's. The house was immaculate, clean and homely. Had everything we needed. Helen was a superb host, respected our privacy but left little chocolates on the pillows and a delicious Victoria sponge cake. Lovely little pond outside the house too. Would recommend to anyone.

Thanks very much for a great stay!

“Perfect, home from home.”
Reviewed December 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

This property intrigued me because of the dovecotes in the bedroom, it was just lovely.
I went to unwind and relax with my daughter 14 yrs old and that's just what we did. Peaceful and out of the hustle and bustle :-) Warm and cosy we put our feet up, read and watched a movie or two from the collection in the cupboard.
We did venture out to find shops not to far down the road in Tewkesbury and Cheltenham not far the other way. Although we did grab a four hour mooch around the Out Let in Gloucestershire, which was very easy to get to.
We had everything we needed in the draws and cupboards to cook with, clean with and even a gorgeous Victoria sandwich on our arrival for my daughter to devour ;-) I'm egg intolerant :-(
Beds made up with lovely fresh white bedding, for our arrival was great, we could just crash after the long dark journey and plush towels in the bathroom, so no need to bring them along in suit case.
Perfect weekend, back home unwound and ready for the busy working week. Will definitely be back again in the future :-)
Many thanks to Helen and Johnathan for sharing your beautiful house ;-)

“Great location for visiting Cheltenham and surrounding area”
Reviewed October 25, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Helen made us feel so welcome. The Dovecote was very clean and a great welcome cake made it more special. Just loved the atmosphere. The premises have been maintained to a high standard and a good nights rest is assured on the comfortable beds.

“Pretty and comfortable house for 2 or 4.”
Reviewed October 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The Dovecote is a sweet, two-bedroomed converted farm building. Daughters loved the little pigeonholes still on the walls. We all enjoyed the fact that it was comfortable, bright , fresh and clean, with a home-made cake waiting. An easy space for us, a family of four, plenty of room, even though it is a small house. Easy reach of Cheltenham.

“Stunning property in stunning location”
Reviewed September 2, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Have just returned from our 2 nights at the Dovecote, a fantastic property in a beautiful location. So peaceful and tranquil with gorgeous views over the lake. Helen, our host, had baked a cake for us, which was scrummy, Helen even came down to welcome us and to make sure we had everything we needed and gave us some great tips on places to visit and where to eat. It was like home from home and we will be booking here again on our next trip to the area.
