Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very clean and comfortable and we felt at home straight away. The owners are extremely welcoming and helpful and the location is a delight. A poor week weather-wise did not spoil our enjoyment at all and we would love to come and stay again in future. June 2012.
  2. A most enjoyable 5 days. The flat was cosy and warm with all the amenities you would need. The added attraction to the bedroom was the balcony, which overlooked the river. If the weather had been better, it was a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the surroundings. The owners were very nice people and extremely helpful, made us feel very welcome with a bottle of bubbly and lovely flowers. Would highly recommend this property. April 2012.
  3. Lovely property and welcoming owners. Wine and flowers appreciated. The weather was not so good (it snowed) but it was February. Love to go back in warmer weather. Feb 2012.
  4. Fantastic. Dec 2011.
  5. My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at Riverside Cottage this August. We especially liked waking up to the sound of ducks in the morning. The cottage was also the perfect location for us since our holiday was themed ’all things Shakespeare’. It afforded us easy access to Stratford upon-Avon. Aug 2011.
  6. Starting with the welcome, the accommodation itself, the location in Alcester, Alcester itself, all in a walking distance the Cotswolds all around and Stratford a short drive away; all in all the ideal spot for a week’s break for a couple. June 2011.
  7. Excellent location. Handy for pubs and shops on High Street yet very private. Easy local walks. Loved the balcony off bedroom directly beside small river. Owner has lovely garden with small bridge. Easy access to Cotswold villages and theatre in Stratford. Felt like being on holiday, not just another accommodation. Would happily return. Owner left wine and flowers, a nice touch. May 2011.
  8. The accommodation was very good and the host was very helpful. It was clean and well presented, with very easy access to the town, (2 minutes walking distance). Quiet and excellent access to fishing. Possible to fish from the bedroom balcony, it’s that close to the river. Overall an enjoyable relaxing stay. March 2011.
  9. Pleasant "granny type" flat, warm, comfortable with good view. Feb 2011.
  10. Peaceful and restful, in a lovely location. Aug 2010.
  11. This accommodation wasof the highest standard without leaving us scared to touch! The fitments were high quality and everything that one could have needed was provided. July 2010.
  12. Location was excellent and a very pretty pot beside the river, where many ducks,swans and birds. We were lucky to see 2 kingfishers, while on the veranda having coffee. The property was in spotless condition and had everything we could possibly need for our stay. The owners greeted us like old friends. The flowers and wine were a beautiful touch. We will be back again when we are in this area. July 2010.
  13. Bottle of wine and bunch of roses awaited us on arrival, beautiful quiet spot in a pretty town with lots of amenities. April 2010.
  14. Lovely position; warm, well-equipped. March 2010.
  15. Lovely apartment, perfect location. We would definitely come back here. Feb 2010.
  16. The property was LIke home from home. Only a short walk to the high street, very, very nice. Oct 2009.
  17. Can’t beat seeing kingfishers while sitting up in bed drinking a cup of tea! Beautiful location, lovely village and people, though access may be awkward for some. Aug 2009.
  18. The situation on the river bank with the opportunity to even fish from the balcony is an angler’s idea of paradise! Very close to all amenities and of course Stratford upon Avon. Aug 2009.
  19. The owners of the property were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. April 2009.
  20. There was a welcoming bottle of wine & fresh flowers in the lounge, the place was very clean & tidy, it was a lovely setting, right by the river. May 2009.
