“Unusual location”

Reviewed 23 May 2013

Booking service efficient,the owner living 20 miles away could pose problems if there was an emergency,in fact we had to call him out for something minor which seems a shame,if he had someone local he could call on it would be useful.But he attended willingly enough.Spacious house,furnished & decorated nicely,liked the novelty of overlooking both the canal & the river,unfortunately the inclement weather prevented us from fully enjoying the amenities.Loved the location of the house though.And being within easy walking distance of museums & shops was ideal as we do not drive.Favourite experiences were the various museums,the cathedral & the shopping outlet,particularly the antiques Centre.My only criticism would be the apparent lack of public transport,though we didn't have occasion to use it on this holiday, we might like to travel further afield if we visited again.Hopefully there would be more buses in the holiday season.

“Fabulous cottage in a wonderful location!”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2012

The cottage was beautiful. It was really spacious and well equipped. It is ideally located for visiting Gloucester and the surrounding area. Many attractiona and amenities were within walking distance.

“A great waterside experience”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2011

Everything we needed was there and all was beautifully clean The location by the lock is great and the prison across the road is unobtrusive. It was very easy to walk to the cathedral and town centre as well as the waterways museum The retail outlet in the quays is good value but they would not let me walk with my bike in there.

“Splendid holiday!!”

“A birthday in Gloucester!”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2011

The Lock House was thoughtfully planned and well equipped for a group of 6 adults. We much appreciated the heating being on when we arrived as it was very cold in November. The house was well positioned for visiting Gloucester and the Cotswalds. We really enjoyed our stay

“Home from home in Gloucester Quays”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2010

This is a fabulous little cottage in a superb location. There were six in our party, myself and my husband our two grown up daughters and there partners,and there was plenty of room for us all. With two bathrooms,a breakfast room and dining room as well as a cosy lounge,the inside was more than ample. The front of the house is a working lock, which kept us entertained on many an occasion, (the lock keepers are very friendly and always had a wave for us) whilst the back garden is an idyllic little oasis of peace and quiet, with butterfies and dragonflies. There is so much to do in this area we couldn't fit it all in, but I would strongly reccomend, The Cotswold Farm (as seen on t.v.) The international bird of prey centre, and the forrest of Dean. Take a half hour trip on a boat along the canal, the skippers commentry is very informative and humorous. The pubs and restaurants nearby are excellent, and the refurbished dock area is stunning, especially if you like antiques, although there are fantastic designer shops too. I can not praise this are enough, myself and my family absolutely loved the place and the warm friendly people. I did not want to go home. seen on t.v.

An unexpected treasure in a perfect location. The house brought back many memories for my family of older times. It was quiet and very pleasant to stay. The upstairs bathroom is wonderful especially the bath with the view!.

“A Christmas to remember”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2010

Such a warm and welcoming cottage, a minutes walk from the Gloucester docklands and designer outlets. Everything you need for a great break. The cottage is well set up with everything we needed for a great Christmas. There is always somewhere to go and my husband was so happy to have a weeks holiday with no driving. A few minutes walk and you are in the centre of Gloucester. I have to say it is a womans dream escape with every amenity to hand.

“Great city location”
