  • "Firstly the location of the property was perfect for us, you literally couldn't get any closer to Warwick Castle we even popped back for lunch and coffee."

    Central to many National Trust properties and the British Motor Museum, with very short stroll to the towns shops and restaurants. Entry was easy, parking 1 car in garage and 1 on the quiet road outside the front door with the provided permit. The house was light large modern and excellently furnished easily coping with our party of 7. The beds were extremely comfortable and all bedding felt fresh like new. Everything we needed was provided and the property was absolutely perfect for our stay. Many thanks.

    Thank you for your kind feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the near future. Best wishes. Property Owner

    The layout of the property suited our party of seven very well. A lot of helpful information received from the owner.

  • "Fantastic location with castle views from the balconies."

    A few minutes walk into Warwick centre with lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. Bedroom configuration was fine for 3 couples. First floor has 2 bedrooms 1 with en-suite, 1 with separate bathroom. The top floor is a quirky layout with large super king bed and a 2nd bedroom with a heavy curtain across which has the en-suite so would suit a family upstairs but not 2 separate couples unless you walk through a bedroom or use the family bathroom on the 1st floor. Kitchen not large but seemed well equipped, we only ate in for breakfast so not a problem. Garage fitted our Qashqai in no problem. The owner contacted us a few days before with information which was helpful. In all we had a fabulous stay at Castle view and would return if ever back in Warwick. Thank you

  • "A very impressive property."

    Everything worked as expected. Beds are very comfy, plenty of hot water and heating. Very secure. Particularly liked to electronic lock rather than having to use a key.The garage is small as detailed in the holiday listing and we couldn't fit our Qashqai in, although maybe with more juggling we could have. The garage is a wedge shape and therefore narrower than it looks from the outside. Parking outside was never a problem for us though. Very nice view and light from the top floor which would make a lovely living area. The only downside for us was the furniture in the living area which wasn't the quality I expected. The cushions were lumpy and the footstool stained. The owner sent a pre-arrival text message with info which I thought was a nice touch.

    We found it to be very well equipped and immaculately clean and cared for. Being located next to the castle, it is centrally located but still quiet. We would definitely stay there again.

  • "The Castle View property is in a wonderful location which is to die for, yet is in a very quiet lane right next to the Castle walls."

    It is so close to the lovely Warwick Castle main entrance but remains quiet and uncrowded. It is really convenient for the restaurants and sights of the town centre, such as Lord Leycester Hospital, as well as having really easy to access other places in nearby Stratford, Kenilworth; Leamington Spa, and the countryside. Castle View is a fascinating house with lots of daylight, and an enclosed orangerie with seating and plants. It has a well-preserved ancient stone wall running along the back of the orangerie and living room at ground level. Our party of 5 people had loads of room here, and with 2 other regular family visitors during our week, we had enough space, including outside on the 2 balconies to enjoy the evenings in comfy chairs. We were able to park 1 car in the garage and another right outside, with the free parking ticket included. Ideal for a family get-together, such as we had there. Sykes kept us well-informed throughout, including COVID precaution updates, account due dates, and how to access the site re keys and parking permits.

  • "The cottage is beautiful from the outside, and I can’t fault the location, but the interior was shabby, had peeling paint, very few plugs, awful kitchen, studenty furniture."

    We have stayed in other Sykes cottages at a similar price and they have been excellent. Definitely wouldn’t return to this one.

    Thank you for your comments, we will be visiting the property in the next few weeks to make repairs and refresh the property ready for the next season. Kind regards Property Owner

  • "The house at Castle View was great for our needs, a family with four teenage children."

    There was plenty of space in the house. We couldn't quite get our car in the garage but there was always on-street parking available near-by. The house was in good condition and came with everything we needed for. It was a short walk into Warwick and an even shorter walk to the Castle. The bedrooms were set-up as we asked for on arrival and everything was clean and tidy. Overall we were very happy with the choice we'd made.

  • "Expensive for what it was there were many problems not enough ovenware, glasses that did not match, fridge that turned so high that it froze the salad."

    Seating arrangement for watching the small television was appalling. The conservatory leaked when it rained. the 1st floor bedroom the door to the on suite would not close and inside the on suite the radiator was rusty and leaked. The shower to the second bedroom on suite at times would not turn off. The property was very 'tired' badly needing some TLC I have booked many properties through Sykes and this by far was the worse value for money that I have experienced.

    Thank you for your feedback. We will be attending the property soon to carryout repairs and a full infantry of cookware. We are always available to assist you had we been made aware. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a long weekend in Castle View."

    The house is spectacular with fabulous views of Warwick castle and walking distance to the town centre, Lots of lovely terraces to enjoy the sunshine as well as the orangery to relax in. The kitchen was small but very well equipped. The bedrooms were large with comfortable beds and sumptuous duvets. Bathrooms were clean with lots of towels for guest use. The owner Peter was very friendly and efficient on text as he was unable to meet us due to Covid restrictions. He mentioned that he usually left a “welcome pack” but for some reason was unable to do that for us. The only negative for me as a female is the lack of dressing tables with mirrors and sockets. It’s a constant criticism even in some hotel rooms and I usually put it down to the fact that it’s been furnished by men!! Just a small table or even a shelf with mirror and socket would be great! Despite that small niggle, We would definitely recommend Castle View as a wonderful place to stay and explore the beautiful area.

  • "The description made it clear that Castle View has an unusual design and this was a key reason for our choice; it looked as though it would generate an interest of its own and it did."

    We knew there was no garden but we found the outdoor space larger than anticipated. We found all the fixtures, fittings, linen & towels etc to be immaculately clean and there was ample provision of cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery. Electrical items all seemed to work in accordance with the instructions. Prior to our holiday, it was clear that Peter wished us to enjoy our time in the house and he proved very helpful and understanding on the couple of occasions that we checked details with him by telephone. We enjoyed exploring the town of Warwick and found good places to enjoy a drink in the open air or to take home a takeaway meal. The garage was large enough for the Ford C-Max but too short for the Mercedes C-Class estate but there was always street space nearby to use the permit. We have come away with happy memories of a very special place for a family gathering.

  • "Very comfortable property which suited my family - 7 adults and one child under 3 years - very well."

    The owner contacted me prior to our stay to see if we wanted one of the beds separated into two singles, however, we decided to take a small bed for my young grandson. I had been a bit uncertain of the curtained and screened bedrooms, with regard to privacy, but they were well separated so privacy was not an issue. The property is in an excellent location, right outside Warwick Castle and walking distance of the town itself. Stratford upon Avon and several National Trust properties are nearby, so plenty to do. The owner met us on arrival and showed us round which was helpful. Two balconies would I am sure be well used in warmer weather.

  • "What an amazing location and venue!"

    ! This property is really stunning - we enjoyed lovely weather on our visit, and whilst it was a bit chilly, we still made use of the balcony. Our host - Peter, was exceptional, met us on arrival to show us around the property and explain things like the heating controls, upstairs lighting and parking. He has also very helpfully made contact with me in advance to advise on parking. We used the garage - which is small but fit one vehicle as promised, we used the permit just outside the property and manged to get parking in the pay and display very close by - it was sensibly priced with the whole weekend Fri-Mon costing around £15/16 This was in March. The house has any utensil and baking tray you need, and there was a lovely cake and some basics for us to enjoy on our arrival. We knew that the property was near to the castle, but we seriously underestimated how close! Brilliantly placed for the town too with plentiful options right on the doorstep. The town itself really caters for tourists too, the local Indian restaurant provided us with menus so that we could browse at our leisure ahead of our evening booking - and it was super tasty, although I've completely forgotten the name of it! Also, the tea shop just around the corner is very cosy and comfortable.

    There were thoughtful touches too, a Christmas Tree, basic supplies and toiletries. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking a belated Christmas lunch. We were concerned that there might be a problem parking as we were four separate family units all with quite big cars but before we booked the booking agent researched nearby parking availability for us. We were able to park outside without a problem. This is a warm, welcoming and quirky house and ideal for a family gathering.

  • "We are a group of four friends who get together once a year for laughter, tears, reminiscing, good food and a chance to catch up."

    We have used Sykes many times and this year was no exception. We all like our own bedroom which this house gave, the facilities were exceptional with a great welcome hamper. Peter the owner was very accommodating and met us on arrival for a full tour and he was on call if needed throughout the three night stay. All of us agreed we would go back to visit again as the terrible rain on the Saturday didn’t allow us to appreciate Warwick. Our only issue with the property was the bedroom at the top of the house has very thin blinds which didn’t stop the morning sun shining through (which wouldn’t be a problem if we hadn’t gone to bed late!), eye masks would solve this quickly. Parking was close for two of our cars but only one car could park on site. Don’t hesitate to book this house as you really enjoy it.

  • "The welcome was great as the owner met us and showed us the home and pointed out how a few things worked."

    He left us a lovely welcome pack of provisions which was wonderful! The beds were very comfortable and they had even made up the beds to match our party i.e. 4 kids and 4 adults therefore 4 single beds and 2 double beds! The proximity to the entrance to Warwick castle and the local high street was great, literally just 2 mins away. It was wonderful for a relaxing 2 family break with enough space to easily accommodate us all, the table was big enough for us all to sit and eat together and with a lounge that allowed us to play games together in the evening. I would highly recommend this and the outdoor spaces I imagine would be fantastic in the good weather, it was chilly and rainy when we were there, but the house was cosy and warm.

    Some provisions were left for us too which was a nice touch (tea, coffee, bread, milk, eggs). The house is really clean. It’s right on the doorstep of the castle (literally a 1 minute walk) and very close to the town centre. The house is beautifully decorated and the photos on the website are accurate although the house feels much more spacious. We took a toddler, while it was all ok and there was plenty of room, the stairs are quite steep. We should have taken stair gates for peace of mind. We also needed to take our own high chair and travel cot. The parking was also fine- a medium sized car in the garage and space on the road outside. We had to park a few metres down the road initially but Peter the owner very kindly helped us unload (we were juggling a grumpy toddler and a 5year old). There aren’t many houses that sleep 8 in the area and we were very lucky that this was such a gem. I would highly recommend it.

    It has everything any group could possibly need, is spotless and spacious. The beds are comfortable and the showers are excellent. The highlight is the first floor outdoor decking area, a gorgeous sun-trap that easily accommodated our party of 6 for a relaxed lunch. When the sun disappeared from here, we moved to the second floor to catch more sunshine on the second floor balcony....really lovely. Peter could not have been more welcoming...quickly showed us round and pointed out key features and little details we might not have worked out for ourselves. Parking available in the garage and an additional car outside with a parking permit. Perfect weekend venue, easily the best accommodation we have stayed in for past 15 years of this kind of break.
