This is an amazing house to access the town centre and Quays, everything you could need is here, the house was clean and very homely.
the stairs are steep and my elderly mother couldn't get up them so we did have to buy a z bed for downstairs for her to sleep in but this was no problem but worth bearing in mind with disablied people.
I can not find anything to fault and we will definatly be returning again.
The milk, tea coffee and biscults in arrival were a lovely touch and as all beding and towels are included it made for a easy stress free break.

For us, this Lock House could not have been more perfect.

The owner sent us directions and was friendly. The directions were spot on and we settled in without any problem at all.

The lounge at the front of the house with its open fire was not huge but cosy and had all you need, TV with DVD, a stocked bookshelves, nest of tables, lamp etc.

The large dining room at the front of the house had a very large table perfect for family eating, again a stocked information and book shelf with games for a rainy day. Pictures of the local area and in keeping with the character of the cottage are dotted throughout.

Into the breakfast room which was at the back of the house. A dresser, a table and chairs for 6, music system, house keeping book, table mats, ornaments etc all provided. We set a lot of time in here, it was lovely.

Off the breakfast room was a downstairs shower and utility room. The shower was one of these multi jet things - water every where, fantastic. A toilet and washing machine in there too.

The other side of the breakfast room was the kitchen with double oven.with extractor fan Loads of crockery and cutlery, all utensils you would need, a fridge freezer, plenty of cupboard and work surface space.

Back door leading to the small back garden overlooking the river. A picnic and normal bench to enjoy the view. The driveway is also accessible this way. A large drive accessed by large lockable gates off the main road.

Upstairs.

3 bedroom - a double and twin at the front and a double at the back. Bedding all in keeping with the period, clean, cosy. Lovely period furniture in the main, beds all comfortable and spotlessly clean

The location is amazing. The nearest bar/cafe/restaurant in under 5 minutes walk away. Shops and other attractions a few minutes further. Perfect location to see lots without driving. If you want to drive tho the private parking makes things easy.

Just returned after a week at The Lock House and would highly recommend this cosy retreat. Ideally located to visit all Gloucester has to offer on foot as well as the wider area by car, a great day out had at the Sculpture Park in the Forest of Dean. the Lock House is very well appointed and the cooker was 5 star!

“Home from home in a lovely spot”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Stayed a week in this lovely homely grade 2 listed cottage. It was in a great spot right on Gloucester docks and only a few minutes walk from the city centre. We had beautiful weather so the garden was very welcome.
It is very unusual having the canal on one side of it and the river severn on the other. You can take a pleasant walk in both directions along the canal or river bank.
The historic Gloucester docks and the retail outlets are a work in process and there are several units not yet taken, but it is still worth a visit and should be really nice when it is completed.
The cottage was very well equipped with everything you could need for your stay and a welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee and biscuits was great.
There was only 2 of us staying but it is plenty big enough for a family, with 3 bedrooms a lovely large bathroom and an additional downstairs shower room with WC. It has a good sized kitchen with a large cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
Great place, really enjoyed it.... Thanks
