Peaceful tranquil site

Peaceful riverside site on the banks of the Avon. Mark was extremely helpful, giving lots of information about the local area. Lovely walk along the river into Bidford. We will definitely return.

6 night stay

Dovecote Moorings
Just returned from a 6 night stay. Loved the site. Extremely peaceful and very pleasant surroundings. Lovely to sit out and relax. Also great for access to the surrounding area. Bidford is on the doorstep, with nice facilities. Wifi is a bit flaky tbh - sometimes you get it, sometimes you don't. Elsan point, water and rubbish all of good standard. Mark, the warden, is extremely helpful and relaxed and maintains the site very well. The only downside was that you need to walk along a short section of road, in both directions, to walk from the site. It's a shame that you can't walk off the site without having to walk on a busy road. We would definitely return.

Lovely place to stay

Dovecote Moorings
Stayed here for a week-end break. Booking was easy via text messaging and arriving rather late we were left with the pitch nearest the entrance. There were adequate hook up points nearby which appeared fairly new, and a single fresh water point. The site was quiet , peaceful and clean and within a 20 min walk to Bidford-on-Avon. There was a slipway on site which you could use if you wanted to canoe or kayak ( you need to have a licence for the Avon), There is a Heart of England walk nearby which was interesting, and it was only 6 miles to Stratford-on-Avon. Mark came to have a chat the next morning, welcome us and tell us where the site facilities were. There was some road noise , but nothing too disturbing. and we had a very enjoyable stay. There is free wi-fi but we found it to be intermittant and unreliable. Overall one of the better sites.

Very enjoyable stay

Dovecote Moorings
We enjoyed chatting to the other CL users and looking at the boats on the canal. Not a site for peace and quiet but still very restful. Water, rubbish and chemical emptying all fine. This area does flood, so it is probably not a winter site, but it was lovely in the summer. Plenty of free standing trees to give shade. Site nice and clean, friendly welcome.

Disappointed

Dovecote Moorings
The site was fairly pleasant right near the river Avon we booked by email and arrived on the Saturday afternoon with 4 other caravans on the site we were left with a pitch right at the end fortunately for us we had read another members review and had carried two hook up leads with us. We never saw the CL owner until the Monday fortunately one of the other members on site showed us where everything was and gave us the wi fi password no signs on the drinking water tap the site was relatively quiet over the weekend but got very noisy on the road behind us from early Monday morning with people travelling to work and continued throughout the week with the morning travel to work. There was always a lot of coming and going with the boat owners and their friends that were moored there and as another member said some showing no regard for the speed limit on site also one boat owner allowed his Staffie to roam the site off the lead and urinate on our water barrel also deficating around the site. we never felt very secure on the site as a lot of coming and going day and night then unfortunately on the Tuesday a large swing shovel digger and tractor and trailer arrived and started working on the bank side less than 20 meters from our pitch which soon became very noisy and as one boat owner told us was planned to take about two weeks. We had booked to stay till the Sunday but the noise got to us and we decided to move on we left early on Thursday afternoon however the site owner chose to deduct Thursday nights site fee from us and stated that he was quite within his rights to charge us for the whole stay that we had booked. It would have been nice if he had informed us of the planned works when we booked the week before I emailed him later that day and stated that we were disappointed that he had taken this course and that by not charging us for the Thursday night would have made some compensation for the noise he replied back with a apology and offered us 2 or 3 nights free on our next visit needless to say we will not be returning.
