Dovecote welcomes guests from around the world who choose the holiday rental to enjoy the full beauty of the tranquil English countryside. The spacious studio-style first-floor apartment is perfect for couples but can accommodate four people, so it is suitable for families. Dovecote is on Fosse Farm in the Wiltshire Cotswolds, less than a mile from the Salutation Inn in the village of The Gibb and within easy reach of the region's favourite sights and attractions. It is one of three superb holiday rentals at Fosse Farm, where the owner also runs a boutique B&B. When booked together, the cottages sleep 16-22 people and are perfect for a holiday with extended family and friends. Please see the owner's website for details.
Nettleton Shrub is in a fantastic location for a holiday in the English countryside. It's surrounded by fields and country lanes with hedgerows that burst with flowers in spring and summer. Follow the footpath from Fosse Farm to Castle Combe, enjoying lovely views on your way to the picturesque village with its wonderful Cotswold houses and quiet winding lanes. Dovecote is near the Fosse Way - the longest Roman Road in Britain, and a route that has been in constant use since 43CE. Spend a day on the track at nearby Castlecombe Circuit or play 18-holes at The Manor House Golf Club, within walking distance of the cottage.
Lacock and Lacock Abbey are near the thriving market town of Chippenham. Both are within an easy 20-minute drive of Dovecote. Chippenham has an excellent choice of shops and amenities and is convenient for stocking up for your self-catering stay. There is also a farmshop closer to home in Burton (two miles away). Lacock is in the National Trust's expert care and gives visitors a glimpse into the past as it has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. The village and the medieval abbey are so quintessentially English that they have been used as a filming location in earlier Harry Potter films and favourite TV shows such as Downton Abbey.
Bath is just under half an hour's drive from Dovecote, with a wealth of sights and attractions. Bristol is also within easy reach for a day out. Local attractions include the amazing adventure playground in the gardens of Bowood House. Longleat Safari Park and Westonbirt Arboretum are two different but fun choices, or you could plan your visit around an event like the prestigious Badminton Horse Trials.
Whether you're in the area for a wedding or a short break, or it's your first time in England and you want to stay somewhere just like you've seen in a film or photos, Dovecote delivers, providing a high standard of accommodation in a peaceful location close to everything you want to see and everywhere you want to go.
