We had a lovely few days away in the Dovecote. The accommodation is extremely comfortable, in a gorgeous setting and well positioned for getting around the Cotswolds. We would definitely return.

We had excellent communication before we arrived and were welcomed just after we arrived, plus of course the very nice cake waiting for us! We found the house very easy to live in, warm, all the facilities you would need and such wonderful views. Another good giveaway that is a good place to be, all of the neighbours we spoke...

Management response:

Thanks for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope Eduardo enjoyed exploring! Kind regards Helen
