“We will return!!”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Beautifully renovated Dovecote with all you could need. Plus home baked Victoria as a welcome! Lovely personal touch, one up on fresh flowers! Feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, but only a few miles to civilisation. And to have a small lake right outside the French doors with a dozen resident ducks, fab. Very child friendly too, well stocked toy cupboard.

“Heaven”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for four nights in the Dovecote cottage. The cottage is amazing and very unique. It is furnished with everything you could wish for and Helen supplies all the basics required ie sheets, towels, tea coffee etc which I think is quite unusual these days. You are also greeted with a beautiful home made cake which is a lovely touch. The beds were really comfortable and the bedding crisp and clean. The setting is absolutely first class, it is quiet and peaceful and although you appear to be in the middle of nowhere you are only a stones throw away from Tewkesbury. We managed to see lots of the beautiful Cotswolds during our stay. This place is also ideal when the weather is bad, it is so comfortable that the day spent relaxing and reading is perfect. It would be the perfect location for sightseeing, for recuperating from illness, or just a getaway from the maddening crowd. Helen is a lovely warm person and greeted us on arrival. Excellent all round. 10/10 for everything. Thank you Helen

“Wife's Birthday Break”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed here for my wife's birthday and could not have been more impressed. The cottage is thoughtfully and beautifully renovated, with everything you could ask for.
Situated in a very quiet spot, we loved the duck pond right outside the back door. A great sight to wake up to and enjoy a drink just relaxing and watching the ducks and other wildlife.
The owners couldn't have been more helpful and even baked a delicious cake for our arrival.
Thank you very much, we hope to be back again!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a really excellent week in this cottage which is very well appointed and in the most tranquil and beautiful of surroundings. We felt comfortable and at home, and have speedily booked a further week there. The owners are welcoming and provide useful information about restaurants and attractions close by. Television and DVD facilities are also provided
The property is approximately mid way between Tewkesbury and Gloucester and ideal for touring the Cotswolds. A bus service is available on the nearby main road but a car is almost essential. The immediate area around Tewkesbury is not well served by rail though there is a train service to nearby Ashchurch.
A supermarket is also about a mile away towards Tewkesbury.
We look forward to returning to the Dovecote Cottage.

“A very beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Dovecote is an incredibly pretty place, sitting next to a lovely big pond, with waterbirds scurrying hither and thither. The house itself is very well set up. It has everything you could possibly need and is set out very attractively. Amazingly, Helen also provides a lovely cake to eat during your stay. We would love to come back in the future. I strongly recommend this property.
