A great place to stay! Very relaxing and quiet and the homemade cake that Helen had made for us when we arrived was a wonderful surprise. Thoroughly recommend.

“Beautiful house in a fabulous location”
Reviewed 17 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Perfect location for a relaxing long weekend. Good walks and plenty of places to visit, Slimbidge being just one of them, well worth taking a picnic there. The property was very well equipped throughout and very comfortable. Helen made us very welcome and the cake that was left for us was delicious. Highly recommend and would definitely return. Thanks Helen X

Lovely house; clean and full of character. We enjoyed watching all the birdlife in the pond in the evenings. Hosts were attentive and welcoming.

“PIGEON ENGLISH”
Reviewed 23 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

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.

RECOMMENDED!!!
