“Most unusual set up”
Reviewed January 21, 2016 for a stay in February 2015

A very belated review as we were here July 2014 but as I am so late reviewing that date wasnt offered to me. We stayed here for a week when visiting friends and family in the area and chose it for being central to everyone. Its a tiny little village and Dove house is basically in the middle of no where deep in the beautiful countryside. You do need a car. The Granary was lovely, spacious and had everything you needed my only gripe was the hand held shower in the bathroom with mo pressure. The owners were very friendly & helpful. The building is very old and steeped in history. We really enjoyed our stay here. Its a bit of a hike but we enjoyed walking to the local pub on a few ocassions The Griffin which served good traditional ales

Thanks for the review. The property has had some updates since July 2014 and now incorporates a shower room (with toilet) in addition to the family bathroom. The heating system boiler has also been replaced, with a Nest controller installed to control the central heating, along with a new un-vented water tank, which delivers fantastic hot water pressure throughout the cottage.

“Just lovely! ”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a lovely place, I stayed here the night before my wedding at the fabulous Shustoke Farm Barns with my bridesmaids and also on our wedding night with my new husband!
Spacious and comfortable, very friendly and helpful owners! :)
Like other reviews, I only felt that the cottage was lacking a shower other than that it was perfect!

We are grateful for the review and feedback: thank you. In response to guest feedback, we have commissioned work to create a new shower room in the Granary, using some of the space from the cloakroom. This is of course in addition to the family bathroom. We will complete this development, subject to availability between bookings, as part of current work to restore a further 2-bedroom cottage in the adjacent building.

“Nice but could be better.”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The property is exactly as advertised. It is very clean and tidy was fine for our use as a Midland's base for a family break. The kitchen was excellent and the bedrooms comfortable and spacious. The BBQ area was great and the parking very good. The property has a lot of character and was very nice for our 5 day break.

The hosts Ken and Nina were very gracious and welcoming although the 3rd lady (an older lady with light hair) was quite rude and aggressive when we were using the childrens outdoor games (a childs football) that the owner (Ken) was so keen to stress we could use the day before. As a result, we avoided the childs play area for the rest of our stay. Our attempt at explaining that Ken had encouraged us to use them just 24hrs previous fell on death ears and was very disappointing.

The bathroom has no proper shower which was a major negative. There is a shower attachment on the bath but you can't even stand up with it. For a property capable of housing 5 adults this is very poor. We also found the sofas quite uncomfortable.

Thanks for this review and feedback. I can only apologise for the incident relating to your use of the children's play area, which I genuinely believe is an exception as we certainly try to extend the warmest of welcomes and every assistance to all guests. In light of guest feedback, we have commissioned work to create a shower room in the Granary, using some of the space from the cloakroom. This will be in addition to the existing family bathroom. We will complete this, subject to availability between bookings, as part of current development to restore a further 2-bedroom cottage in the adjacent building.

Very clean property . owners very friendly. But with 4 adults in our party we struggled without a shower. We had water on overnight so everyone could bathe on a morning. This was noisy.

“A little bit of Ye Old England”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were a party of 4 combing a business trip and vacation all in one, the granary is a very well maintained cottage in a lovely peaceful part of North West Warwickshire with good access to the many tourist & heritage sites in the region.

Inside the cottage it very well fitted out with good space and high quality furnishings however all the old world charm and character remain so it gives every room a lovely ambience that is quite unique.
