About the property

Apartment in The Docks, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England - Peaceful And Relaxing Apartment In The Heart Of Historic Docks And Popular Quays Leisure Complex

Our luxury one bedroom apartment is offered in excellent order, spotlessly clean with new decoration and quality furnishings. It is situated on the fourth floor of a stylish architect designed warehouse conversion in the heart of the historic Gloucester docks. The building and apartment has retained many of its early Victorian features including steel pillars, wooden beams and exposed brick walls. The sitting room and bedroom windows afford superb views over the busy marina with its barges, pleasure boats and occasional tall ship. The views also carry on beyond to May Hill and the Royal Forest of Dean countryside. The Gloucester Quays leisure complex is less than a minute walk away and here you will find a variety of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, designer outlet shopping, antique centre and 10 screen cinema. The city centre, Gloucester Cathedral and Kingsholm rugby ground are all a short walk away. The apartment also benefits from unlimited free Wi-Fi, a Virgin Media digital TV package and a free allocated covered parking space in a secure car-park.

About Richard Burge

I am a retired police officer and my wife Tracey works as a community support officer in a local secondary school. We live in Stroud and have 2 daughters, one of whom is a journalist in Hertfordshire and the other one a holiday courier working in France.

Richard Burge purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Richard Burge chose Gloucester

We have watched the Docks and Quays leisure quarter develop over many years and it has now become a vibrant and exciting place to live, visit and socialise. We bought the apartment as a holiday home for ourselves and family to use as well as our paying guests. Our favourite restaurant is a 30 second walk from our front door with lots of other bars, coffee shops, restaurants, shops, museums and cinema within a 2 minute walk. We never tire of just strolling around the area looking at the different boats coming and going and sitting outside one of the coffee shops watching the world go by. But despite all this, the apartment is a very relaxing place to stay and whilst looking out of the windows to the marina and countryside, we forget we are in the heart of the City and this buzzing area.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with the apartment as soon as we saw it and would argue it is in the best and most interesting building in the Docks. Disney must agree, because they recently used it as a back-drop for their new 'Alice Through The Looking Glass' film. Although we live close by in Stroud, we regularly stay in the apartment and always feel like we are away on holiday. It is a great base to stay if you are visiting to watch Gloucester Rugby, attend Cheltenham races, or want to explore the Cotswolds and glorious Gloucestershire countryside.

An ideal base to explore the Gloucester area

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was warm, welcoming, well appointed and clean. Small touches like the bottle of wine, milk etc. helped with the overall first impression. The greeting and overview by Richard was a great idea and simplified what could have been quite a complicated arrangement with access codes, parking spaces and permits. We found it a great location to explore Gloucester, the Cotswolds and even Stratford and Bath. The docks area is well served by a shop, coffee spots and restaurants. We would definitely recommend the property to friends and family. Thank you for a memorable stay.

Lives up to it's fantastic reviews

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment very comfortable, clean and ideally situated for the festive activities in the quay. Plenty of hot water and spare towels bed linen etc.

Richard was very welcoming and even invited us to arrive early as there was no one staying the night before.

The quays have a great atmosphere and everything is on your doorstep.

Beautiful apartment in a quirky and well renovated docks warehouse

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely. The decor was to a high standard and modern - in keeping with the building. Very cosy and homely. It had everything that you needed. The location of Gloucester Quays is nice with lots of great eating and drinking places as well as nice shops. The hosts were great - very welcoming and helpful!

A very nice apartment in a great location overlooking the quays.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Gloucester, and we were pleasantly suprised with the whole experience. The apartment in converted dock buildings was very comfortable and was within minutes of all the local amenities that Gloucester had to offer.Richard met us on arrival and made us felt very welcome. Everything was as described , we had a wonderful stay pity it was not longer! . Well done Roger.

Returning Guest

We have stayed at this apartment a number of times and as we expected it was again up to its usual high standard and we would be delighted to stay there again. The accomodation is of a very high standard and the hosts very helpful friendly and welcoming. It has a great location overlooking the docks and also has its own car parking space under cover in a secure location.
