“Perfect cottage in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Great location, and it has all the amenities you could want. Helen was a perfect host - she stopped by after we unpacked to make sure we had everything we needed. The cake she left was a nice touch, and was devoured. I absolutely loved the way this cottage was restored with the exposed beams & original pigeon holes in the bedrooms. The only possible negative (very minor one), is that the WiFi signal was very weak and I had to stand outside to get a connection. This was important to keep in touch with folks back home and to look up info about local area. Helen did tell me though that she was in the process of amplifying the signal so I would expect that to be remedied for the next patron. All in all, a 5-star stay - I highly recommend this cottage; you will not be disappointed.

“Beautiful cottage and lovely area”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 for a stay in July 2013

We loved this cottage! It was perfectly placed to visit friends in Tewks and Chelt areas. Short drive into town with everything you need. A beautiful place that really suited us. Can easily put kids to bed upstairs and then stay up to have 'adult' time without fear of TV or chat waking them up. Would definitely return!

“Wonderful piece of history in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

This holiday house, two stories, with a huge open plan downstairs and two bedrooms and bathroom upstairs was a fascinating and ideal place to stay. We had guests for a couple of days and the wood fire and huge comfy chairs were ideal for relaxing and talking. Very well appointed throughout. We did not need for a thing. Books and videos supplied. Comfortable beds. Big fluffy doonas. Parking outside the door. This is an ideal location for heading off around the Cotswolds and south Wales. Very quiet. Very clean. We were made very welcome and thoroughly recommend anyone to stay. Any problems? Stairs are a bit narrow so getting cases upstairs was a bit problematic. WiFi was a bit temperamental - stand by the back door!
The secret is out about the cake so look forward to a delicious welcome!

“Great Cotswolds experience”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a lovely stay at the Dovecote.
The place is even prettier than in the photos, with a little like and ducks beside it. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything you would need. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The owners are very helpful with anything you need. Highly recommended!
