Description from owner


Dovecote Barn, Five Star Rated. and Visit England Gold Award. This property is amazing ."A wonderful holiday home. Perhaps the best we've ever stayed in." This stunning barn conversion,with a really spacious open plan living room has every modern comfort while retaining its historic past. It has plenty of parking and a walled south- facing garden with stunning views over an ancient water- filled moat and meadows to Tetbury's famous spire.

Tetbury has antiques, exciting restaurants and cafes, regular covered markets and Prince Charles's famous Highrove Shop.

I mile in the other direction is the National Arboretum at Westonbirt which has huge trees,amazing colour and regular seasonal events to attract all visitors of all ages.

Celebration Meal. Why not give yourself a break and hire our local professional chef to cook and serve that special meal for you ?

Book in good time to secure DOVECOTE BARN with THE PANTILES for up to 17 +4 people! You will all have room to eat around our huge expanding oak table!

In the house we keep descriptions and maps of short and longer walks, whether across the fields to the local pub or, after a short drive, to gaze across the Severn estuary into Wales

Further details indoors

Dovecote barn has a high standard of comfort and cooking arrangements with open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area. This includes a log fire at one end and large south facing windows all along the garden side, with french doors opening onto an enclosed patio garden.

WHEELCHAIR USERS: The approach to the property has dropped kerb parking 3 metres from front door with level path and only needing a small ramp (supplied) to enter over the front door lip (8 cms). The main living and eating areas require no steps.
We have a downstairs bedroom (kingsize double bed) with en suite wet room and shower seat.

Upstairs, off the oak balustrade landing, we have another en suite double bedroom (kingsize) and 2 more twin bedrooms with separate bathroom (wc, bath and shower).
There is underfloor heating with oak flooring downstairs, thick, fitted wool carpet on the stairs and above.

Further details outdoors

The house is on a farm and separated from existing listed cotswold stone buildings by its own front garden to the north, and enclosed walled garden to the south. It looks over the ancient water moat after which 'Doughton' [old english for 'Duck Farm' ] was named.

The farm is part of stewardship schemes to encourage wildlife and there are singing birds in abundance, and, if you get up early, you could see deer, foxes and hares. We also have horses, pigs and egg-laying chickens.
Well behaved dogs are welcome at £30 per dog

Very Good

“An excellent”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2014

The accomodation was fabulous; a huge cottage that comfortably accomodated my family and extended family. The cottage is gorgeous and the setting idyllic and ideal for families. We had a super few days and were greeted with a very tasty homemade cake when we arrived making us feel very welcome indeed.

“We could have stayed for ever!”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2013

If you are looking for a relaxing weekend away in the Cotswold with family or friends, look no further. Dovecote is fantastic! A beautiful barn, renovated to a very high standard, very light and spacious, with everything you could possibly need. Perfect for the family pet with the small enclosed garden at the back, and ideal as well for any small child who will love the horses and the ducks outside the front door waiting for their bread! The owners are so welcoming and we tucked into the scrumptious cake left for us when we arrived! Happy days spent roaming around Tetbury, a ride in a big pink taxi to The Vine Tree one evening, walks from the farm, albeit very muddy on a bitterly cold weekend, and then back to the roaring log fire! You really could not wish for anything more. The whole family loved it there and we can't wait to return! Thank you Sue and Rob!

“A very comfortable cottage suitable for a mixed age group.”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2012

We stayed at Dovecote with extended family and friends and had an excellent week. The attractive bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and downstairs toilet made life easy for a family group as did the well equipped kitchen. The patio/garden area is very secure for young children. The helpful owners live on the spot so there was no hunting around for the keyholder on the first day and they provided a cake on arrival and fresh eggs during the week. The farm location is quiet with lovely walks straight from the front door. You do need a car to see the countryside and get to Tetbury 2 miles away which has good shops and pubs and restaurants. A really stress -free week's holiday enjoyed by all ages.

“The owners thought of everything;the most perfect holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2012

Our family group included my daughter and her newborn son and a toddler, my 87 year old wheelchair bound mother and her sister, my husband and myself, and my son. Could have been a disaster if the cottage had not worked out so perfectly. The easy layout, the garden, the ease of access, the farm environment, all contributed greatly to our enjoyment. Everything was so convenient - including the location, with Tetbury so close, lovely countryside, so many places within easy reach such as Bath. Everything we could possibly need was provided, and none of us wanted to leave!

“Beautiful accommodation, extremely well equipped & lovely location”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2012

We stayed her with family and friends for the weekend. So pleased when we arrived as the house was pristine and there lovely home baked cake awaiting. The bedrooms were extremely well appointed and modern bathrooms. The kitchen was a home from home and had everything we needed. The barn is close warm and had a great open fire in the sitting room. Close to Tetbury and surrounding Cotswolds it was perfect walking out to a pub lunch. We would not hesitate to stay again. Thanks to Rob & Sue (owners)
