,An excellent location and a charming property that was warm and cosy. The two bathrooms/shower room worked well with 5 adults. It was great having a dishwasher and a wonderful large range cooker. The off street parking is valuable in this location and being a stones throw away from most amenities the cars could remain parked up safely without restrictions. The good eating places close by meant that a glass of wine could be enjoyed by all! We would happily go there again.

,We loved the location of The Lock House and everything about the house itself! We have already booked to go back in September this year. Owners very helpful. Everything and more you could want. The area very dog friendly. All you could possibly want on the door step.

,Excellent location with 5 minutes walk to Gloucester centre, historic quays and countryside. It was a clean comfortable cottage with a quiet garden at the rear overlooking the river. Ideal property for a family break.

,The cottage was very attractive and in the perfect location - a car is useful for exploring, but not essential, as there's a lot to do on the doorstep. It had a pretty garden too. Loved the feeling of being in the countryside even though we were in a city!
