  • "Avonmede provided a warm and comfortable stay."

    The cottage is spotlessly clean with everything we needed. We had a welcome pack on arrival of essentials so we had breakfast the next morning. Very welcome thank you. Avonmeade is full of charm and character of a cottage. It is well situated so access to shops, restaurants, pubs a short walk away. Thank you x

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the welcome treats we left, we hope to see you again one day thanks. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage and your description was accurate."

    Need to advise about ceiling height and small internal steps but that is nature of listed cottage. The stairs were very steep so left luggage downstairs, so not a problem. My little dog enjoyed some of your treats too so thank you. Bed linen super, I am going to research the brand. Thank you

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here, yes the bedding is wonderful isn't it! ❤️ The stairs are steep and on multiple levels, so we do suggest not suitable if guests have limited mobility. The nature of a 200year old cottage, I'm afraid. So glad your dog enjoyed the welcome treats! Thanks. Property Owner

  • "Just back from a 2 night break at Avonmede."

    We had a lovely time - the cottage was very cute and cozy, well equipped with everything we needed for our short stay. The owners had left a welcome basket with butter, jam, marmalade, biscuits, bread and even a bottle of wine for us and provided a dog bed, biscuits and blanket for our pooch, which were all thoughtful touches. We thought it was funny that the dog bed was really for a much smaller dog than our German Shepherd but she tried to get into it nonetheless! The property is well positioned to easily walk around the town and down along side the river and is within easy reach of several pubs - one right opposite, which was very handy and dog friendly too. The hot tub is an added bonus, and it was lovely to relax in it after our long day out walking. I will be recommending to my friends and family with dogs - most excellent.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback, we are glad you will recommend us to your friends and family, sorry your dog didn't fit the bed! But we went for a medium so it was an average size, most people do bring their own anyway. Perhaps he could fit a little bit of him in! There are so many dog friendly pubs and shops as well as cafes in Tewkesbury it really is an excellent place to bring them... Glad you enjoyed the treats we left for you too, thanks again!

  • "Beautiful cottage in an excellent location."

    Lots of dog walks close by and just at the end of the high street. We loved everything about the cottage recently done to a very high standard. We parked close by in Oldbury Road car park for just £4 per day which you can do on Ringo app. Much appreciated welcome basket and lovely thought of dog bed, towel, treats. Would love to stay again.

    We are really pleased you had a lovely stay at our cottage, and enjoyed the wonderful location. Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in a small terrace of beautiful period cottages, right next to the river Avon in Tewkesbury, adjacent to the historic King John's Bridge, lies Avonmede Cottage.

A traditional, cottage dating back to the early 1800's, it has been tastefully furnished using William Morris and Co interiors to stay true to the period.

Lovingly restored to its former glory, the cottage is a perfect choice for those wishing to experience a quaint and dog-friendly, romantic getaway.

With original low beams, and old elm floors, it is set on multi-levels, with nooks and crannies to explore – just remember to mind your head!

Step into the inviting living/dining room, where you can curl up on the plush seating in front of the warming electric fire and select a much-loved film on the TV, ready to enjoy with your favourite tipple in hand.

Conjure up a delicious meal in the well-equipped kitchen, ready to savour at the dining table as you plan the following day's itinerary.

On warmer evenings, why not fire up the barbecue and dine alfresco out in the rear enclosed garden, followed by a relaxing dip in the bubbling hot tub?

Indulgent soft bath robes are provided to wrap up in after a lovely evening watching the stars in the secluded outdoor hot tub which is just made for two.

Make your way back inside to freshen up in the well-appointed shower room after a day of adventure.

Continue upstairs to find a handy cloakroom, as well as a light and airy double bedroom with wrought iron bed, fitted with indulgent soft Egyptian cotton linen bedding, overlooking the nearby river.

Right on your doorstep, you can treat your other half to a meal at the oldest pub in Tewkesbury, Browns Garden, dating back to the 1500’s.

Tewkesbury has a plethora of activities to enjoy, boating, fishing, museums, and antique centres, as well as cafes, pubs and shops that are all dog friendly.

Venture further into the town, where you can tour the Tewkesbury Museum, visit the fascinating Tewkesbury Battlefield, well-known for where the War of the Roses came to head, dine at Gupshill Manor, picnic in the Vineyards Park, enjoy wildlife rich walks through the Tewkesbury Nature Reserve, or enjoy leisurely strolls along the River Severn and up towards the River Avon.

Next stop is Cheltenham, home to the popular Gold Cup held annually at the racecourse in March, as well as The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum, the Pittville Pump Room and the Victorian Everyman Theatre.

Further afield, you’ll find Gloucester, where you can visit the attractions of Gloucester Cathedral, National Waterways Museum and the Gloucester Docks.
