This pet friendly, detached former lock keeper’s house sleeps 6 people and occupies a unique location right in the city centre at the entrance to the historic Gloucester Docks and just a short drive from Cheltenham.

Lock House is a beautiful detached Grade II listed former Lock Keepers house, located at the entrance to the historic Gloucester Docks. This delightfully welcoming holiday property offers cosy accommodation including three bedrooms, a bathroom with an attractive roll top bath, two sitting rooms with open fires, original wooden floors, and a dining room that overlooks the River Severn. The garden is situated right on the riverbank, and is a wonderful spot in which to relax with a drink after a day spent sightseeing. Gloucester Docks is a short distance from The Lock House, and offers some lively attractions including award winning museums, restaurants, bars, cafes and shops, and traditional shipbuilding. Gloucester’s many attractions, parks, stunning countryside and honey coloured Cotswold villages are all within easy reach of this wonderful holiday property.


Excellent location with 5 minutes walk to Gloucester centre, historic quays and countryside. It was a clean comfortable cottage with a quiet garden at the rear overlooking the river. Ideal property for a family break.
Mrs Kilbourn

We loved the location of The Lock House and everything about the house itself! We have already booked to go back in September this year. Owners very helpful. Everything and more you could want. The area very dog friendly. All you could possibly want on the door step.
Mrs Herring

An excellent location and a charming property that was warm and cosy. The two bathrooms/shower room worked well with 5 adults. It was great having a dishwasher and a wonderful large range cooker. The off street parking is valuable in this location and being a stones throw away from most amenities the cars could remain parked up safely without restrictions. The good eating places close by meant that a glass of wine could be enjoyed by all! We would happily go there again.
Mr Morgan

Spacious well equipped property, ideal for a walking holiday.
Mrs Windeaty

The house is cosy, comfortable and relaxing. It's location is perfect to explore local attractions on foot.
