“Beautiful Cottage”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We enjoyed our stay out in the country at this lovely lodge.
We stayed 2 nights as part of our road trip through the UK and spent the first day visiting Birmingham and the second day visiting Warwick Castle.
The farm was easy to find and is just outside of the town centre so a few little pubs and cafes around as well as a Morrisons supermarket only about 10 minutes drive.
The cottage provides everything you need including a full kitchen and washing machine. Also got some great photos of the place to add to our trip.
Birmingham was around a 40 minute drive and I believe there is a Safari Park around the same distance. Warwick Castle was also about 40 minutes drive.
If we return to the area we would definitely stay here again.
Thanks very much for having us!

This was a perfect little haven for us to stay whilst we seeing a show in Birmingham. It was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed for our two night stay, lovely fresh bedding and towels and even a real coffee maker which was a bonus! Out little girl loved playing on the slide in the garden. Thanks you for a fabulous stay, we would highly recommend this place

“Stunning cottage with heaps of character”

Absolutely beautiful cottage to stay in and set in a lovely location.
We were welcomed by Ruth who I believe is the owner Ken's mother in law. She was very friendly and made us feel welcome and the cottage itself had everything you could want to make for a relaxing break.
Highly recommend and hope to stay again in the future.

“Country life at The Lodge At Dovehouse Farm”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

What I really want to say will never be enough to thank Ken & his family for our wonderful stay at Dovehouse Farm..
Having relocate back to the Uk after living abroad for many years, we really needed somewhere to stay for 3 weeks and somewhere that would accept our dog Ruby. Well we looked hard and long and finally found Dovehouse Farm.
What a fantastic choice we made, the property itself is a beautiful 14th century farm and we were lucky enough to stay in the Lodge.
It is fully fitted so we didn't need to bring anything ourselves, and comfy to a fault. So warm and cozy, just like home should be.
We relaxed from the word go, arriving quite late, well after midnight.Ken was there to meet & greet us , nothing was to much trouble.
The next day & throughout the whole 3 weeks we relaxed & enjoyed our time more & more, enjoying the property & grounds, even being given a guided tour of the main house by Ken himself. To say our stay was wonderful is an understatement. Ken even gave us a key to an enclosed field attached to the main house just so we could run our dog Ruby safely at our own leasure. Again nothing was to much trouble.
Towels & linen were provided & a cleaner came whenever we asked, she was really nice too.
As you may see we where so happy here, we would highly recommend Dovehouse Farm to everyone we know including family & friends too. We were ever invited back to celebrate Bonfire night by Ken & family, how nice is that !!.
We would like to visit Dovehouse again, maybe for the weekend once we have settled back in the Uk, really look forward to that & of course we will bring Ruby too.
Many, Many thanks to Ken & family for our wonderful stay at The Lodge At Dovehouse Farm

What a lovely place, my parents stayed here the night before my wedding at the fabulous Shustoke Farm Barns!
Spacious and comfortable, very friendly and helpful owners! :)
Ceilings a little low for my father who is 6' 3" but apart from that it was perfect!

We are grateful for the review and kind comments. Downstairs, there is a beam between the open plan dining and sitting area at 1.91m (just over 6'3") from floor level. So, this might present a very slight hazard for those so blessed in the height department!

“The cottage was beautiful, cozy and overflowing with character.”

My husband and I stayed at the cottage with our 8 year old daughter. We were greeted by family of the landlords and they were very helpful and welcoming.
The cottage was very clean, well maintained with modern amenities, but lots of old world charm.
The only recommendation would be that the switch to turn the hot water on is pointed out very clearly as the first shower was cold before we figured out we needed to turn on the heater.
Thanks for a lovely visit!!

“A hideaway in the country”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for a week, and it was exactly what we wanted, quiet in the evening, and a comfortable place to get back to after a busy day.

The country side around Dovehouse farm is beautiful, and we enjoyed a lovely walk through woods and farmland.

The hosts were were very helpful, and made sure our stay was a success.

The only negative note was the shower, which leaked, and if it was used, guaranteed a very cold end to the experience, but the hosts know about this,and are making changes.

I'd be very happy to recommend to my friends

We're grateful for the review and comments. We have since addressed the leak, though the hot water pressure to the shower in this property means that one still needs to be careful. To improve this further, we intend updating the bath and tiling as availability between bookings allows.
