"Great location, friendly owners and lovely cottage- Perfect!"
We booked a last minute break to Dovecote Cottage which was excellent value for money. There were 4 of us and my 2 year old son. The outside space and surrounding land were great for my son to run around and play. There was plenty of space to sit out and enjoy the sunshine! the area is very peaceful and a great base to explore the local area. We enjoyed trips to West Midlands safari park, worcester, stratford upon avon and a few others. The owners are so welcoming and very informative about the local area and places to go. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could need, we especially liked the little cool box provided for the many picnics we went on! Overall I would highly recommend this place and would definitely return

"Idyllic location & perfect hosts"
We cannot recommend this lovely barn conversion highly enough. Just got home from 3 nights in this beautiful location. Our hosts were very friendly and could not help us enough. Homely and spotless and very well equipped. Perfect location for the Cotswolds especially if you have dogs as our 2 bearded collies were made welcome. The thing that really made our visit was the view of the Moat Farm house, absolutely stunning.

"Warm, friendly welcome to a first class property"
This is a beautifully converted barn conversion in an idyllic setting. The barn had everything we needed and more and Judy and Peter made us feel very welcome and that we only needed to ask for anything. The location is superb for exploring the beautiful Worcestershire countryside and Worcester itself as well as Stratford and beyond. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend Dovecote Barn to anyone.

"Lovely cottage and highly recommended!"
We had a lovely stay at the newly refurbished Dovecote Barn with a beautiful view at the medieval house.
The warm welcome and the well equipped, cozy and clean cottage made us feel at home immediately.
Peaceful surroundings and nice walks were relaxing.
Dovecote Barn is wonderfully located. The beautiful country side of the Cotswolds and many interesting cities like Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham are within easy reach.
The owners were very kind and helpful to make our stay into a wonderful holiday.
We loved being here and would very much like to come back.
