A great waterside experience

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.

Cosy cottage, Excellent location

Great for watching the activity through the locks. Everyone has a wave! Clean and spacious cottage in an ideal location for historic Gloucester docks. Easy walking distance to cathedral, town, restaurants, bars, retail outlet and antiques centres. The Lock House includes everything you need for your stay, although no Internet access in the house - it is available in cafe/bar at the docks though.

A birthday in Gloucester!

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

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.
