My family and myself stayed at The Dovecote in Deerhurst Walton for a week. I would like to thank Helen (Smith) very much for a fantastic stay in her gorgeous cottage. It consisted of a lovely kitchen diner with ALL mod cons, two sumptuous bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed, and a very comfortable bathroom with bath and power shower. Both the bedrooms and bathroom have the original dovecote holes. This all came with free WIFI and a freshly baked cake!. What set the cottage apart from similar offerings, was a FANTASTIC pond right next to it with a plethora of wildlife including Herons, Canada Geese and Bats!
The location of the cottage is ideal for Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Broadway and other Cotswold hotspots. We went to Cheltenham races for two days, and it only took twenty minutes each way!
I thoroughly recommend the Dovecote to families and couples alike, as it gives you the opportunity to do as much or as little as you want.
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 to were friendly and though the Pigeon House was wonderful.
We found Ledbury to be the nicest town nearby and of course the Wye Valley.
The GWsR railway is also nearby and very worth a visit.
I would certainly stay here again.
Helen's house is lovely, clean and looks exactly like the pictures (even better). She always answered my messages on time and kindly left us a cake for the day we got there. The house is next to a lake so it is very calm and the location is great!
I hope we will visit again!
