5/5 Excellent

We stayed at Dove Cottage for 5 days but wished we could have stayed for longer. This accommodation was fantastic, lovely and clean, lovely art :) The location is perfect and the car park for a pound was literally a 5 minute walk at most so a bargain. It is a lovely little cottage in a beautiful village which we would recommend to anyone. Thank you!

A lovely few days in Winchcombe
The property has been beautifully decorated and is a charming place to stay. It suited us perfectly as there were only three of us on this occasion so we had plenty of room. The beds were very comfortable, the showers were great and everything was very clean. The kitchen appeared to have most bits and pieces although we had already decided we would not be cooking any meals on this holiday. We can recommend the Chinese takeaway which is just around the corner and The White Hart pub in the village. Unfortunately the fish and chip shop was closed on Sunday and Monday so we went further afield to Cleeve. You literally have everything you need on your doorstep - lovely bakery, little grocery shop, gift shop etc. Winchcombe is a beautiful and very historic place to visit with plenty of pretty walks with Sudeley Castle also within walking distance. There is a bit of noise from the gallery when it's open and from the high street first thing in the morning, but it didn't bother us at all. The dishwasher is a bit high up to use, but we'd read the previous reviews so were prepared for that and just washed up our few bits. We really loved the house and would love to visit again.

4/5 Good

First getaway in the Cotswolds
Overall the property was lovely. Well looked after, beautiful period features and well maintained. It’s the First time we have stayed in somewhere like this and was really pleased with the property. Although we knew the property was on the high street, we didn’t count on there being a delivery at the newsagent just a door down from the property every morning from 4.30 - 5 am onwards every morning . So unfortunately we were both woken up every morning with the slamming of car doors and people talking really loudly. This also set our dog off barking which was a bit of a nightmare. Couldn’t open the windows because of this so was really hot to sleep at night. Really don’t like saying as the property really was lovely, but the kitchen drawers, cooker and floor weren’t that clean when we arrived. I know if I had mentioned it at the time the owners would have probably remedied this but I’m not one to complain. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to stay, Winchcombe is one of the most beautiful villages I have ever been to and would definitely come back to stay again but maybe not the best place to stay if your a light sleeper.

5/5 Excellent
