We have just finished a perfect family holiday. We are a family with 3 teenagers. The house and location could not have been better. We were lucky to stay during a heat wave. The house was perfect for us. An easy stroll easy from Gloucester docks. We visited Bath, Cirencester, Ross-on-Wye, Bristol Aerospace, Crickley Hill, Newark Park, Dryham park, and Chedworth Roman villa. A holiday to remember!!

We found the Lock House to be a charming combination of old and new--with wide floor boards and very modern bath facilities. The location in the docklands put us close to the High Street and the Quays with restaurants and plenty to observe. We especially valued the private parking place, the scrap of land with a clothes line between us and the Severn River and the chance to stand at the front door and wave to the boats coming through the lock.

We have just spent a very enjoyable week here, the house is as described clean and comfortable just what we hoped for.

We found the location of the house at the entrance to the very interesting Gloucester Quays excellent. In the quays there are many places to eat and shop and it also has a Wetherspoons inn.

We visited WWT Slimbridge which was excellent, also the Forest of Dean and the delightful Cotswolds, we also spent a very interesting day out to Bristol. Great location and would recommend it, we will return

Spent a week here over New Year with a group of friends. Perfect location for the quays, town centre and cathedral. The cottage is Grade II listed so don't go here looking for a modern place to stay. There are very comfy beds, efficient central heating and bags of hot water for 6 adults, big range cooker (not that we used it much) and a fridge freezer. Open coal fire which was lovely on a wet and windy day - fuel supplied too. Would thoroughly recommend Cote Brasserie in the quays - great menu as always accompanied by very friendly staff. The Robert Rakes House pub in the town centre also worth a visit - open fires in every room and great food, but they only serve food until early evening. Brian the owner could not have been more helpful . Will definitely return when staying in the area.

Cottage Review:  

Had a great week in this lovely cottage, such a fantastic & unusual location which we really enjoyed. It is very cosy & warm, & very well equipped with lots of items that often get forgotten about ie hooks on doors, cleaning materials, d/w tabs, loo rolls etc. The garden is a lovely sun trap & very secure for the dogs, although could do with a tidy up & a proper little fence by the river instead of just the horrid wire netting, which would improve the outlook no end.

As mentioned several times in the visitors book, the sofas are incredibly uncomfortable, especially the larger one which you disappear down the back of as the seat is collapsing! They also have a bad doggy smell about them which wafts every time you sit down.

Sadly the cottage is very tired & in need of some tlc as well as a good deep clean...we had to wash the entire cutlery drawer & much of the crockery & pans before use as rather grubby & greasy. Both the kitchen & bathrooms were not as clean as they should be unfortunately.

However if these issues were resolved we would definitely recommend as overall the accommodation is of a good standard.

A very nice 3 bed 2 bathroom cottage. Perfect location in historical dock area and town centre. All within walking distance. Beds comfortable and spacious rooms. Large bathroom and a good size downstair shower and wc. Open fire was a very nice feature at xmas. We felt very at home here.

A very cosy and characterful property with everything needed for a comfortable' home from home' stay.The welcome milk and biscuits, tea and coffee made us feel at home immediately.The house has all the extras you need to enjoy a stay at any time of the year from barbecue and outside furniture in the pretty garden in summer to board games and books tv/dvd/music in winter.There were no "if only there was a..." conversation as everything had been provided. The location is great unless you have very small children as the water is very deep just outside the door.

Wow! What a lovely home this is. We really enjoyed staying here. We were visiting from Australia for a family wedding and this was an ideal place to stay. As we were arriving late in the evening straight from the airport we really appreciated having the heating on and house warmed prior to our arrival. This cottage is well situated within an easy walk to the city but being next to the lock it felt more like a country house. It was a lot bigger than I expected and there was plenty of room for a family of 6 adults. Our only issue was that being a family of t

We finally managed to get our busy daughters and their partners together for a holiday. And there was something for everyone, although we all enjoyed watching the comings and goings through the lock. The canal lock was at the front of the house and the River Severn at the back, with various paths for country walking and walking easily into the city. We all loved this wonderfully well equipped cottage with its helpful owners. A special nod to Vanessa on The Cafe on the Cut for a particularly memorable breakfast.
