Lovely central location
Had a lovely stay in Albion Cottage. Mike and Dorata were the perfect hosts. The cottage was very clean and cosy and had everything we needed. We could not have asked for a better location, being near to restaurants, shops and bars. We also visited Bristol and Cheltenham. We would definitely pay a return visit.

Fantastic location and lovely cottage
We are a family of 4 and just spent 3 nights in 1 Albert Cottage and really enjoyed our stay. Mike and Dorata had done a very thorough clean for our arrival and were very welcoming. The cottage has plenty of space and is very well looked after. The location is superb with many shops (great outlet centre) and restaurants only 2-3 minutes walk away. A fantastic base with the Cotswolds not far away. We will happily stay again should we be in the area again.

Beautiful cottage in a great location
Perfect base for travelling to the cotswolds or Forest of Dean, lots of lovely bars and restaurants on the doorstep too at Gloucester docks. The cottage was beautiful, very clean and bed was so comfortable! Cute little garden to sit in too - Dorota and Mike were lovely hosts they thought of everything. Hoping to be back soon, thank you

Fabulous
Greeted on arrival by Dorota and upgraded to number 2 Albion Cottages, this property has just been newly converted into a holiday let and the standard of accommodation and furnishing was first class. The well equipped kitchen had everything needed to self cater however the position of the cottage directly on the docks and a few minutes walk from the town centre gives easy access to a wide variety of restaurants. Beds were very comfortable. Would highly recommend Albion cottages for a holiday or short break

Beautifully renovated; great location on the docks - close to shops and restaurants.
Right on the docks (with its restaurants and shops). Ten minutes' walk to the city centre and cathedral. Renovated in a modern fashion but maintains its period charm. Dorota and Mike (the owners are very friendly and helpful).

Fabulous weekend
Just home from our second year staying at the cottage, went with my 3 sisters and our mum, drove from Buckinghamshire then parked up didnt need the car again till home time, everything is on the door step of the cottage. With a luvly view from the window of part of the dock with boats & barges. The cottage is equipt with all modern amenities and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. Many shops, restaurants and pubs including a wetherspoon and TGI Fridays (great cocktails) Great for an active or chillaxing time away. Highly recommend. Paula

Outstanding!
Upon arriving at 1 Albion Cottage, we were greeted by the lovely Dorota and Mike. Both were extremely helpful as to showing us the facilities in the cottage and the parking which is located directly behind the property. The cottage was so cosy and Christmassy and situated within good reach of local pubs and restaurants. We came to stay for a New Years break so Dorota and Mike kindly left us a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge to pop open at New year! Lovely touch. Thank you to you both, we had such a nice time and will definitely be back! X (Finally, I left my laptop at the cottage and Dorota immediately messaged to tell me and even kindly had it couriered to me the next day! Wonderful service!)

Map
About the neighborhood
The former dock estate has become a popular free destination where visitors can enjoy interesting views and a range of modern facilities while wandering around a remarkably complete example of a Victorian port. Views include many fine warehouses and other dock-related buildings that have been found new uses. Where ships once discharged their cargoes, there is now an ever-changing miscellany of visiting narrow boats, smart motor cruisers and the occasional yacht or tall ship. The whole area is suitable for wheel-chairs.
