“Perfect for a family celebration”
Reviewed September 26, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had both Dovecote and Pantiles giving us 8 bedrooms, 3 of which are downstairs. This was ample for 13 adults and 3 small children. The accommodation was very well equipped with one of the dining tables able to seat 16 comfortably. We had a local chef come to the property on one night to cook us a meal; absolutely fabulous. The owners were on hand to answer and questions and kindly provided a lovely home made cake for us on arrival. We had a truly memorable stay. We visited Cirencester, Tetbury, Dyham Park (National Trust) and the Arboretum (only a mile up the road.)

Our 3rd stay at Dovecote for Badminton Horse Trials and it was perfect once again. Clean, spacious and of a high standard. The sponge cake on arrival is always greatly appreciated too!

“Wonderful place for a celebration”
Reviewed January 25, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We rented both Dovecote Barn and the Pantiles (Doughton Cottages) for a three night weekend stay to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday with the family. Everything was perfect - the accommodation, the location, the friendly owners, even the weather!! The accommodation is spacious, spotlessly clean, very well appointed and in an excellent location. It is perfect for any celebration, get together, or just a holiday.

“Spectacular accomadation”
Reviewed November 24, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Our weekend away with a large group for my husbands 30th birthday was made ever so special and perfect with the stay we had here at the long barn. The barn is so beautiful and ever so spacious, making it comfortable for each and every one of us. The owners of the property I couldn't thank enough. They were so helpful and accomadating. I would definately recommend and hope to visit again in the future.

“Brilliant venue for a special event.”
Reviewed April 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed in the two cottages for a week in the run up and the weekend of my daughters wedding. As the week progressed we welcomed members of our family and the bridesmaids and close friends of the bride. Sitting around the log fire drinking nice wine, eating good food and enjoying lovely company was great. There was lots to do locally and my eldest daughter and family enjoyed days out at the zoo and the local Arboretum.
On the Thursday we welcomed the bridegrooms family for a fabulous meal prepared by Peter Vepers. The accomodation was extremely comfortable and the immediate surroundings gave the opportunity for lovely family walks.
Of course the highlight of the week was the wedding at Tormarton Church on Easter Saturday. What a lovely place for the bridal party to get ready in and I can't wait to see the photos that were taken of the bride leaving from a beautiful venue. Highly recommended.

“A real star!! this place felt like home with friendly owners and lovely setting!”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Only thing described that we found to be missing..the washer only washes ..not dries. No biggie.
And a new grill might be a good idea.
We would most definitely return. Tom, the owner's son was a delight and made our visit very sweet..even finding us a cooler to take to market!
The pizza at Priory is great!
Don't miss gardens at nearby Barnsley!!
