Dove Cottage is a beautiful, traditional Cotswold stone property, located in the picturesque village of Naunton. The village is very popular, being set away from busy roads and benefitting from a good village pub, golf course and many walks straight from the doorstep. The well known market town of Stow-on-the-Wold and the beautiful village of Bourton-on-the-Water are both within six miles, with their wide range of pubs, shops and restaurants. Naunton is also ideally located for exploring the wider Cotswolds region and beyond, including famous places such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Blenheim Palace.
This lovely cottage has many character features, including oak beams, a stone fireplace with a wood burning stove, and solid wooden doors. The traditional character is complemented by modern facilities, including a Smart TV, fast wireless internet access and a well presented kitchen.
Dove Cottage sleeps a maximum of four people plus one infant in a cot, in two bedrooms, with one bathroom. There is a lovely patio area at the front of the property, together with a parking space for one car. The property is the perfect place for couples, families or small groups of friends seeking an idyllic rural retreat in the heart of the Cotswold countryside.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR ANY BOOKINGS BETWEEN 12TH – 28TH AUGUST, THERE WILL BE NO TRAVEL COT OR HIGH CHAIR AVAILABLE AT THE PROPERTY, HOWEVER GUESTS ARE VERY WELCOME TO BRING THEIR OWN EQUIPMENT IF TRAVELLING WITH BABIES OR YOUNG CHILDREN.
Booking and payment:
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).
The maximum occupancy of the property is four guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than four guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.
One medium sized dog is accepted, at a cost of £20 per booking. We do ask you to ensure that dogs never stray onto the neighbouring properties - please note that there is no boundary fence to the garden.
For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure. We also ask that dogs are never left alone in the property.

Bed linen and towels are provided for guests.

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.
Accessibility, health and safety:
This property has many character features, including several steps leading up to the front door, narrow and steep stairs, some very low beams, and sloping ceilings, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
