  • "This cottage was a cosy retreat for us from London."

    It was lovely and clean and very comfortable. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage was cosy, clean and well equipped. Even though it was near the A38 it was quiet inside.

  • "We loved this property."

    Its very well presented and in a great location, the welcome pack with cake is a nice touch. There is a fancy coffee machine but I couldn't get on with it and missed my Nespresso lol. The property is within the owners grounds but it's not an issue as they will leave you to enjoy your holiday. They are very approachable though and we have booked to go back

  • "We had a lovely comfortable stay at Garden Cottage."

    Thank you Penny for the lovely cake which you left for us. Although located near the A38, we were not disturbed by traffic noise as we did not want to sit outside. I was puzzled by the lack of a coffee table in the photo taken of the lounge. There is one, but I won't spoil the surprise. The cottage is in a very good location close to many local attractions and there is a pub only a few minutes walk away, serving Nepalese food. We met the two dogs only once in the back garden and they greeted us enthusiastically. Would certainly stay here again.

  • "Very nice property."

    All amenities as stated. Comfy bed and great bathroom. We visited over the Christmas period and did not go out much as the weather was not that good, considering a return come Summer. Upton on Seven is very quaint, like going back in time. Tewksbury has lot to offer shopping wise. For emergency milk, odds and sorts, a local Spar is less than 5mins away in Upton. Owners were very pleasant and stay out of the way, with two lovely friendly dogs, who do not make a noise at all, and who would, no doubt, give you a nasty lick, lol. Could do with a Television in the Bedroom but this is my preference, not everyone would share it. My wife is disabled and would have liked that. Ideal for a couple with a disabled spouse as this is the reason we chose this property. All rooms are at one level and compact. If we book again I will bring my portable. Property is very near to a main road, I must say we never heard any road noise at all. Highly recommended.

Also the low season price was very favourable. Thank you Penny & Mike

    This is the first Sykes cottage we have booked and the first of four holiday rentals this year where the windows were sparkling on arrival and even cleaned whilst we were there! It was a really comfortable, safe and secure property with its own parking behind a secure fence in a rural setting. Easily one of the best properties we have rented, and we have been doing this for many, many decades! A big thank you to the owners!

Lovely decor and whilst very close to A38 is sufficently insulated for noise not to be heard. Very central for our trips out to Pershore (highly recommend Kens butchers shop), Ledbury, Teewkesbury and Evesham as well as local NT properties. Owners on site were very friendly and helpful leaving cake, wine and milk for our arrival. certainly high on our list for a return visit.

It also plays host to many annual festivals, including Jazz, Folk and Blues Festivals, as well as the Sunshine Music Festival. This thriving small town has its own marina, a vineyard and well-stocked farm shop at the local fruit farm, plus the town’s medieval church, which is now a Heritage Centre, is topped by a striking 18th century cupola, known locally as 'The Pepperpot'.
