  • "Clear arrival instructions and directions provided by the owner which made the out-of-the-way property simple to find."

    The apartment itself has everything needed for a long weekend with the host offering a laundry service for an additional fee, if you’re staying for longer. The immediate area is quiet and peaceful with lots of opportunity to watch wildlife. There are towns within a short drive and at least one tea room that can be reached on foot, if you are happy to walk cross-country on public footpaths.

  • "The host was amazing."

    She was so kind and generous with us. The stay itself is beautiful and tranquil. We stayed there for two weeks and were able to be completely self sufficient with cooking etc. as all the amenities are provided. There are beautiful walks surrounding the property. Can’t recommend this place more. Absolute 5 star stay.

    The host Jacqui gave us a fantastic welcome, very easy going and gave lots of information about where to go and what to do around the area. Fabulous views from the apartment, very quiet and peaceful. I would definitely recommend a stay there if you want to relax and not be bothered by noise and traffic etc. We enjoyed our stay and would come again in the future.

    It was peaceful, the facilities exceeded expectation - the owners made us feel very welcome and that us having a lovely holiday was important to them. I was very impressed. I suggest Sykes include a search filter for a "remote" setting - this was one of my main criteria when seeking a self catering getaway and it took a lot of Internet searches to find the perfect place. The listing on your site says the accommodation is near a beach - I thought that was odd when I booked, as it clearly isn't! There are plenty of stunning places to visit in the region, but actually I was always excited to go back to the Stilehouse Apartment each day, and I can't wait to unpack my bags there again.

  • "We had a fantastic time at The Stilehouse."

    The grounds are stunning, the location is great and there is plenty to explore via the footpaths going in and out of the grounds. It’s easy to find near a lovely little village which has a great butchers shop. A little further down the road (about a minute), there is a little farm shop which has everything you need for the week. As a bonus it has a really good selection of beer from local ales to beers from Wiper & True, Wild Beer, Brewdog and a selection of Belgian beer. The view from the cottage is really very beautiful and the grounds are well looked after. It’s nice to wake up, open the blinds and look out over the grounds while enjoying a nice breakfast! We spent a lot of time wandering around the lakes/ponds and just sitting back and watching all of the wildlife. There is lots of seating all around the grounds if you want to just sit back and enjoy a good book in the sun, or there are routes out of the grounds if you fancy a nice walk. Every day we’d get a little visit from Alfie and Milly, their dogs. Both are lovely and very happy when they get a little extra fuss in their day! They’re also just as happy to see you and wander off if you’re busy. My wife is 6 months pregnant and she had no trouble at all getting around. With it being before the lockdown, Jackie was very accomodating in doing a little extra cleaning to alleviate any concerns we might have. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed for a truly relaxing week. Thanks to Jackie and Paul for a lovely stay, your cottage and grounds are all very beautiful and we’ll definitely be back with the little one probably later next year.

Just a short drive away is the popular historic town of Stourport-on-Severn, which nestles on the outstanding beauty of the River Severn and offers an abundance of cafes, shops and black and white timbered houses.
