“Pretty and comfortable house for 2 or 4.”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The Dovecote is a sweet, two-bedroomed converted farm building. Daughters loved the little pigeonholes still on the walls. We all enjoyed the fact that it was comfortable, bright , fresh and clean, with a home-made cake waiting. An easy space for us, a family of four, plenty of room, even though it is a small house. Easy reach of Cheltenham.

“Stunning property in stunning location”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Have just returned from our 2 nights at the Dovecote, a fantastic property in a beautiful location. So peaceful and tranquil with gorgeous views over the lake. Helen, our host, had baked a cake for us, which was scrummy, Helen even came down to welcome us and to make sure we had everything we needed and gave us some great tips on places to visit and where to eat. It was like home from home and we will be booking here again on our next trip to the area.

“Delightful time at the Dovecote”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Dovecote. It is well equipped for a family of 4 to have a good experience. We selected the location because it is on the edge of the Cotswolds and reasonably close to a couple of locations that we planned to visit. The building retains the original Dovecotes on the first floor, which makes it unique and fascinating. The building is one step away from a duck pond that was the source of great pleasure for our 7 year old grandson. I really enjoyed our stay here and have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.

Regards,

Brian Newlove
