The Cotswolds region
Tetbury is in the cotswold area of outstanding natural beauty and the landscape is a combination of rolling pasture land famous for its dry stone walls. The walls and roofs of barns and cottages have always been built with the local stone and, as a result, seem to grow out of the land.
There are stately homes to visit like Chavenage as well as pretty villages with rows of stone cottages like those in Minchinhampton, Easton grey or Tetbury's Chipping Steps. The famous Cotswold Way, a 5 day walking trail that passes within 7 miles of Tetbury, is quite stunning with its views over sheep- grazed valleys into villages like Uley and Horsley and eventually into the wonderful crescents and terraces of the Georgian city of Bath.
Beautiful buildings and farmland combine easily around these two 2 market towns which are less than 10 minutes from Doughton. 40 minutes away is either Bath, Bristol, or Cheltenham. Each very popular for shopping ,sight -seeing,concerts and theatre, but each also has something unique: Cheltenham, its famous racing festival in March, Bristol, the SS Great Britain and wonderful children's museums (@Bristol) and Bath, the newly refurbished Roman Baths and tea rooms made famous by Jane Austen's novels.
The National Arboretum at Westonbirt [3 mins drive] is a wonderful place to spend the day in every season of the year.
Visit the Abbey Gardens in Malmesbury, wonderful in late summer and autumn and the Badminton International Horse Trials[10 minutes drive] are held in the grounds of the Duke of Beaufort's well- run country estate, in May.

Thank you for writng a review for us. It is very encouraging to hear that our guests like it here so much and Peter the chef is always a success.

"Great rental and super friendly folks"
This is our second stay in Dovecote and we loved it, again. Great for kids, rock solid house (sound doesn't travel!), all needed kit, and Sue and Rob are super nice. Location is quiet and beautiful, looking at stuff built when Shakespeare was alive (not much of that in the US). We'll be back. Thanks, Tom, Angela and kids, from MD, USA
Thank you both for your positive review. It is so encouraging for us to keep it all that way.

"The most fantastic setting for a large group to relax in"
Two properties which can be rented together or separately but for a large group, they work well as one with the large living/dining/kitchen in The Pantiles. We were 14 in total but a few more would not have been a problem. Little enclosed gardens very good if you have a dog. Cleanliness and comfort could not be faulted throughout. We ate together as a large group and found the kitchen equipment, crockery, glassware etc did not lack. We totally loved the relaxing atmosphere and styling of the barns and surrounds from the moment we arrived, our hosts were very friendly and helpful but never too present. So much to do and see in the area and Tetbury is a delight. Waitrose delivery works well - don't forget the emergency pint of milk for tea as you wait for it to arrive. Chef recommended on the website did a good job and was extremely reasonable. Had a little difficulty finding the turnoff from the main road without SatNav. I really hope I will get a chance to stay here again.

"Outstanding barn in beautiful countryside"
Perfect for a large group with a wonderful communal space with a roaring fire which is set up by the owners and with infinite supplies of wood from the estate. A beautiful place in very smart condition with excellent power showers and lovely clean kitchen facilities. We really couldn't have asked for more. We fully intend to return again as there are so many country walks we'd like to explore from Doughton.

"Fantastic accomodation in beautiful rural setting"
We stayed at Doughton Barns with family (6 adults and 4 children) for a week taking both barns. We regularly rent holiday accomodation and we were extremely impressed with both these properties. Furnishings and amenities are top notch and there is plenty of space to spread out. The main dining table is huge and great for dinner parties. The barns are in a tranquil setting next to an old manor house with a number of good walks right from the front door with a numbe rof other places of interest within a short drive. The owners are very welcoming (even leaving a freshly baked cake upon our arrival) and accomodating (organised a babysitter for us for an evening) and there are even friendly dogs that will join you for a walk if you want them to. When asked to complete a review at the end of our stay we really couldn't think of anything negative to say. Highly recommended.
Thank you very much fopr your super review. It makes us even more keen to keep it always as good.
