We stayed in the Dovecote over the October half term week. It is a wonderful place. Perfect for a couple. The ground floor contains the kitchen-diner and living area, the first floor is the bedroom and the bathroom is on the second floor. Best bed (4 poster), mattress and bed linen. The place is small, which makes it perfect for a romantic getaway.
It is right on the banks of the mill stream and lake. There are other cottages/apartments/flats on the property but we felt it was very private and secluded. Great for walks in the area. Can definitely recommend the short walk to Kemerton Lake - local conservation area with hides looking out over the water.
Also perfect for touring this wonderfully picturesque part of the Cotswolds.
We were very sad to have to cut short our trip (unavoidable circumstances). We were there for 4 out of 7 days but we felt we got our money's worth. This is one of those places one would not mind going back to - even if it is just for a weekend.
The only criticism: it would be really awesome if a welcome pack with the basic necessities like coffee, tea, milk, sugar, salt, pepper, oil, etc. awaits you when you arrive.
