It was a great cottage by the river, it was very peaceful. The cottage was warm and cosy with everything that you would need, it was like being at a home from home. The owner was very helpful and could not do enough to make sure that my stay was perfect. I would certainly recommend staying at this cottage.

The location was great. The garden was lovely and we were very lucky with the weather so were able to spend a lot of time outside relaxing and fishing.

We really enjoyed the peaceful location, the easy access to the river, and the dog enjoyed the freedom of the garden.

The apartment was spacious giving us plenty of room for 6 adults, a seven year old and a crawling 10month old baby.

The accommodation was superb, very spacious (for 3 couples), and set out just right for relaxing with friends, the location was excellent. Although the river was up the fishing was still good fun and the hours flew by. The area was picturesque, and the girls loved the walking , while the guys fished. It was a great weekend.

Location on the water was stunning. There was 7 0f us and enough room that we could have our own space. House was modern, spacious and homely feel.

The location of the property was excellent with lots of places to visit within easy reach. The owner was very helpful and was within easy reach should he be required.

The condition of the cottage was very good and cleanliness was what I would have expected. Owners were very pleasant, came over and introduced themselves and helpful to advise of good places to eat and areas of interest. Everyone was friendly in the surrounding area.

Rosewaters Cottage was our ideal holiday home and the location was great for all the places we intended to visit. The fishing at the bottom of the garden made a very happy son and grandson and nan, granddad and wife/mum had some riverbank chillaxing. There were some very nice pubs/restaurants close by so not a lot of cooking went on. All in all we had a lovely holiday which we hope to repeat sometime.

Very clear and fresh cottage. Really nice and helpful owner. Wonderful surroundings and the Pub nearby. We even caught some nice barbel directly from the garden at river Severn, so a perfect stay for a fisherman. We definitely will come back to this cottage!

Miss Evans

Beautiful area, right on the river, very close for country walks with the dog, safe surroundings, many warm welcoming pubs (2 that were dog friendly - Hampstall Inn and the New Inn). All pub food was of a very good standard. Local farm shop had a wide selection of produce. Owner very welcoming and was very willing to loan us life jackets. He was very informative of the local area and made us feel comfortable and at home.
Mrs Kelsey
January 2011
The premises are very tastefully decorated and fitted out to a high standard. The owner was extremely welcoming and accommodating and had even put up a Christmas tree which was highly appreciated by our three children. The weather was unseasonably cold but the place was very warm and cosy which was great because we had just left Australia and 30 degrees! The property is set in a sublime location overlooking the River Severn and is highly recommended.

Lovely cottage with every amenity that you needed. The owner came to see if we required anything and if it was satisfactory. I would recommend this cottage to everyone. Jeff Gregory.

Arrived and the place was stone cold like no one had been in it for months, it also smelt damp, that moudly smell. It wasnt dirty but it certainly wasnt clean and we needed to wash all crockery before using it. Shame really cos it looked like a cheap place to stay but maybe to cheap, they say you get what you pay for but i do expect cleanliness.

Lovely place,beautifully furnished right by the river.Very attractive bed linen but rather uncomfortable mattresses.Nice big fitted kitchen & lounge.There were six adults plus a seven year old & a baby.Lots of space for all of us plus parking for three cars.Loved all of it except the mattresses.

The house is lovely, spacious but comfortable, home from home. We went for our family Christmas as the waters rose. The owner was very concerned and came to check we were not flooded even on Christmas Day. Nothing to dislike. It the weather had been kinder we would have enjoyed lovely walks from the property into Stourport along the river. Lovely view out over the river Severn. Would love to visit again in warmer weather!

To start with this property is indeed right on the river (although it is not the historic wharf building in the picture), it is easy to find with plenty of car parking space. Inside it is spacious, with a well equiped kitchen, good TV, comfy sofa and large rooms. We were here in winter, and my wife is pregnant, so we couldn't use the outside facilities but can confirm a nice garden with furniture to use. At night it was very peaceful and most importantly we found that it was very well cleaned. Unfotunately there are were two downsides for us: Firstly the property is very low having been built underneath the family home above. In summer this must make it suitably cool but over a grey winter weekend it felt dark especially as one of the bedrooms, the hall and the bathroom do not have windows. Thus we needed the lights on even in daytime and it proved to be 'a bit of a headbanger' for me at 6' 3" as the light fittings and a couple of beams/doors are less than that height. So a minor issue to consider if thinking about renting in winter and/or if you are tall. More important though was our second issue - when we arrived on a Friday afternoon it had been vacant for only a couple of days but all the radiators had been switched off (and we found out only the next day the windows were open on the latch and air vents also open). Thus property was very cold on arrival and also the log fire in the pictures which we had been looking forward to using is not real. So we naturally pumped up the heating as I walked the 2+miles to the shop for milk, bread, handsoap etc and my wife tried to get her afternoon rest fully dressed in bed. No big deal. But even after dinner it was still cold and after 7 hours of heating, at about 9.30pm, the boiler switched off. We called the owner Paul and to be fair he came straight away, saw the thermostat click at 15 degrees showing the real room temperature, and he adjusted the timer by unscrewing the plate off the boiler. But we had to be at our persuasive best to get him to leave the heating on overnight - clearly this was not 'normal' for him and he told us so and how much extra it would cost him. That first night we did not sleep well but once we found the windows open the next morning (it was still only 18degrees by then) and left the heating high the rest of the weekend it was warm. A dissapointing start but anyway it was fixed so we thought little more about it. Sadly though the weekend ended on a sour note. The owner was clearly agrieved we had the termerity to leave the heating on 24 hours a day to warm the property up and leave several lights on to make the place welcoming as we do in our own home, and he told us so in no uncertain terms when we were leaving. Even though he knew my wife was pregnant and stayed in and slept during the day when I was out walking (he said he entered the property on both the Saturday and the Sunday daytime without our knowledge, on the Saturday we believe this may have been whilst she was sleeping) he questioned our integrity by refusing to believe we were cold the first night, he refused to listen to our feedback in return, he barred us from staying again and then ordered us off his property! Quite an unbelievable little rant. So......in summary to bring this review back to the property only, I would still recommend it for families or groups in summer. If coming in winter, and especially if you are not good with the cold, I suggest you call the agent and make it a clear condition of renting that the heating is on before you arrive and that it is left on 24 hours a day so that you can make your own adult decision about the temperature control in the property.
