Second time we have been so you can see loved it ! And so much to do in the area ! A big must is West Midlands safari park wonderful for all ages ! Fantastic experience !
"We are seasoned self-caterers and No 5 Windemere fulfilled our needs and more."
It appears in our top 5 places to stay. We have already booked this property for the same week next year.
Thank you so much for your positive feedback, we’re delighted you enjoyed your stay and very much look forward to welcoming you back next year. Property Owner
"Well equipped comfortable apartment, great location walking distance to river and canal footpaths, town centre shops, pubs etc."
Large Tesco within walking distance. Apartment great for two people but would be rather small and squashed for four adults. Owner prompt and helpful answers to any queries. Lovely peaceful setting all windows and balcony overlooking canal basin with ducks and swans.
Hi Linda, Thank you so much for your feedback, hopefully the photographs of the apartment give a true representation of the space on offer, many people use the apartment as a base to explore the local area so its just enough for their needs. Hopefully we'll see you again in the future Michelle Property Owner
"Enjoyable break, apartment as described, well equipped and in a good central location."
Thank you for your review, we're delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to hosting you again in the future. Property Owner
"A comfortable, lovely situated apartment, which was excellent value for money."
However, not really suitable for 4 adults as there is only a small table with 2 chairs in the corner plus 2 stools at the breakfast bar making it impossible to have dinner together. Also, unable to close the door to bedroom 2 without moving the bed. Tried to contact the owner but found that both our phones were barred ! No Alexa and other complaints had not been addressed.
Dear Mr S. Initially please accept my apologies in terms of you being unable to contact me, my phone is on 24/7 I'm receiving calls on this number all day every day so I'm not sure why you weren't able to get in touch with me. I'm so sorry you didn't feel the apartment was conducive to accommodating 4 guests, we have used the exact same layout for the past four years and have received numerous compliments, at the end of the day its a 2 bedroom apartment so we are slightly limited in terms of what we can offer, we've made every effort to maximise the space we do have to ensure guest comfort and satisfaction. I will ensure that the beds in the twin room are always in a position for the door to be closed without the guests having to move them, thank you for bringing this issue to our attention.

"An amazing, spacious, two bedroom apartment in a fantastic location."
The communication with the owners was outstanding.
Thank you for your feedback, we're delighted you enjoyed your stay Property Owner
"The flat was very well appointed and very comfortable."
Everything you needed was provided. Great to feed the ducks from the balcony trying to avoid the seagulls. Plenty of lovely walks nearby.
"Better dining chairs, could not get on breakfast stools had to use Patio chairs, but other than that it was perfect"
"A bright and tidy apartment in a perfect location overlooking the canal basin."
Situated in a quiet area close to the town centre, with supermarkets, pubs and a wide range of takeaways all just a short walk away, plus a good café almost next door. Note that the listing for this property is incorrect as the double bed is definitely NOT a king size (we measured it as 4'6) and Alexa was nowhere to be found.
"The directions are misleading : 'turn left after Tesco' would be better as ' ..."
The directions are misleading : 'turn left after Tesco' would be better as ' turn left at traffic lights by Tesco' Also, there was no welcome pack - not even milk which I think is the least you should expect these days
"We had a lovely stay in a lovely apartment, we were there to celebrate my sisters golden wedding anniversary, and she loved everything about the area especially how picturesque it was…will definitely be returning, best holiday we have had in the UK."
"Beautiful apartment in a lovely location, perfect for long walks along the canal and river, plenty of pubs to stop at to enjoy the views, particularly around the canal basin."
Kitchen had everything you could need. TV was a bit erratic kept losing signal and Alexa didn't work at all (not a great problem was just looking forward to trying it out!). Just a couple of little maintenance issues that need to be sorted out - inside handle on front door is very loose and toilet seat in the bathroom is very loose also. Apart from those very minor issues a great stay, lots of information available for days out and eating options. Supermarkets within 5/10 minutes walk. Great to sit out on the balcony in the evening and watch the ducks!
"Nice apartment as advertised, very easy access to the town and all amenities."
"The apartment was just what was needed."
It had everything you could want. Kitchen was fully equipped, bedrooms were comfortable and the view from the balcony over the canal basin was lovely. Stourport has lots do with plenty of places to walk and see and also with easy roads to Bewdley, droitwich and worcester. One improvement would be the directions to access the car park should be made more simple with access off cheapside rather than going off the postcode. One small grumble off what was a great little get away.
"A lovely place to stay."
Well furnished apartment, very clean and modern. Plenty to do within 20 miles ,and some good local pubs and restaurants.
"This was a well appointed apartment with good views over the canal basins and marina."
Only a short walk to the town centre and to local supermarkets as well as the usual takeaways. There were plenty of delightful and peaceful walks along the canal and river banks and out into the countryside. The small town of Stourport is very pleasant with lots of evidence of its Georgian heritage. Whilst the apartment was generally well cared for we were disappointed with a lack of attention to detail in the cleaning. There were thick build ups of dirt in the corners of window sills. The fridge was dirty and we had to clean it our before we used it. The freezer was so encrusted with ice that most of the drawers would not open. The microwave was dirty internally and there was rust inside the door. We chose not to use it. Not the standard that we have become used to with Sykes Cottages. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful holiday.
"Apartment was great as is the location set on the marina."
Ideally located for visiting local and nearby attractions. Would recommend the following Worcester, Great Malvern, Ludlow, Bewdley to mention a few. Town has numerous takeaways and pubs. Well worth a visit and we even had a week of uninterrupted sunshine!!!
"The apartment was excellent, well maintained and very modern and clean."
It was ideally placed for Stourport-on-Severn and lots of walks close by.
"Everything was as expected."
"Amazing apartment, there is nothing more you could ask for."
That's why we have booked it for all of January 2021.
"An amazing apartment."
Everything you could want. Extremely handy for shops, pubs, restaurants and lovely walks.
"Shortage of restaurants open in the evening during the winter months."
"As always the apartment was clean, comfortable, and a good place to stay."
This is our 4th time at the apartment as its so handy for visiting relatives and friends and exploring the area. We shall be booking again.
"The apartment was very clean."
Everything you needed was there. We were a party of 4 adults and the two separate bathrooms were ideal and just as we had hoped for. Our two friends were from France and they also thought it was superb. The Alexa was the star attraction. We used it to play English and French music. Very useful for translations at times. Wonderful area and despite the bad weather (heavy rain most days) we enjoyed out daily outings.
"This apartment is well laid out, very well equipped and furnished to a very high standard throughout."
The beds are very comfortable, with luxury bedding and have ample wardrobe space in both bedrooms. Both bathrooms, one with a shower over the bath are a good size. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony, especially in the evening to watch the sunset. Perfect location for walking along the tow path, river banks or visiting the many attractions further afield by car or bus.
"Comfortable apartment, unfortunately Alexa had lost the connection which we could not restore."
We also discovered marks on both bedding and towels which if we had dspotted earlier we would have made contact with listed number about. The apartment would benefit from little extras such as dish cloths, dishwasher tablets and extra crockery, as despite there only being two of us we had to put the dishwasher on every day, which we felt very wasteful!
"Great apartment in a great location"
Great facilities. Amazon Alexa was an added bonus and great fun to use. Nice and quiet area with lovely views of the canal basin. Would recommend this holiday base and would definitely go back.
"Apartment is well-situated for the dining and drinking venues around the harbour basin."
Good view of the basin from the balcony - nice to sit out with a glass of wine. Well-equipped flat with reasonable storage space for food with ful-size fridge and freezer units. Dining area a little strange, with two chairs at a breakfast bar and then another two chairs around a round table. This meant that two diners have their backs to the others. Bedroom 2 (twin beds) a little tight to access, but comfortable bed linen in both rooms (although duvet a little hot for the end of May). Large, Smart TV with Amazon Echo (?) unit behind - our son loved asking Alexa to tell him a joke (secretly, so did I !). Apartment very clean throughout. Will definitely return to this flat if we visit Stourport-in-Severn again.
"The only thing is the twin bedroom door wouldn’t close because bed was in the way !"
! But as only for two of us no problem . Everything else was above our expectation .lovely place , views great and so near canals and basin . Close to so many attractions, thoroughly enjoyed our holiday !! And will be using you again !!!
"Very comfortable base to discover Worcestershire."
Apartment is in a lovely setting with pubs and restaurants close by.
"Lovely apartment with first class equipment."
Nice view from balcony helped by the excellent weather we had. Good to have Netflix and Alexa!!
"Very comfortable accommodation,good base for visiting lots of interesting places,also great amenities in walking distance."
"Musty smell in en suit shower room."
"Couldn't fault it happy with everything"
"We have been using Sykes for many years and this property is one of the best that we have come across."
Everything in the apartment was of top quality and even had a television you could see very important if you are a rugby fan and Wales are playing England (Wales won by the way). Many thanks to the owners of the property for the way it was presented.
"We stayed at 5 Windermere over the Christmas period (2018) and could not fault the apartment one bit."
It was spotlessly clean throughout with a modern kitchen, a first rate TV, fresh towels and linen and a really comfortable bed. The view from the apartment was an added bonus for us. All in all we had a really peaceful 5 days of chilling out. Would highly recommend.
"We had a very enjoyable holiday in a very nice apartment."
"Very clean, very comfortable, close to the river and town, beautiful bed linen, top of the range fittings, well equipped kitchen, yes very pleased."
Will certainly be booking again next year.
"Lovely well equipped and clean apartment."
Great base for seeing the surrounding areas
"Excellent flat with lovely canal and river walks nearby."
Very clean throughout, and comfortable bed. Would suggest that the written "travelling to the property" directions be amended to take accound of the new road "Discovery Way", which avoids the town centre when arriving from Hartlebury Common.
"Lovely comfortable villa."
Well equipped kitchen TV had intermittent problems with connection toWIFI
"The apartment was very modern and very clean with all appliances and facilities."
It is in a beautiful location and the surrounding area is lovely. Unfortunately there was an issue with the tv working intermittently and most evenings was not working at all. This was during the World Cup, Wimbledon and the Tour de France which impacted massively on our stay. The owner contacted the engineer who could not replicate the problem and had still not resolved the issue by the end of our holiday.
"Property ideally situated."
Easy walking distance from pubs and restaurants yet set in a very quiet location five minutes walk from the River Severn.Allocated parking just outside apartment. Easy walking distance to Tesco supermarket.
"First class apartment, in a first class position."
All amenities are close to hand, but far enough away to keep it peaceful. No expense has been spared, this is a genuine home from home, and the locals are very friendly also
"Only one slight issue."
In the listing it says there is a DVD player. Couldn't find one anywhere!! Took lots of DVDs and nothing to play them on....... If we'd known we'd have taken our own, no problem. Maybe update the listing. Otherwise everything was perfect, beautiful view from apartment and surrounding areas just stunning.
"Lovely modern apartment."
Very clean & comfortable. Nice views of the canal basin. Good base for visiting surrounding area.
"Excellent apartment, spotless, everything you needed and more inside."
Lovely location on the canal basin with lovely walks and amenities on the doorstep. Had a lovely time and look forward to visting the area again in the future.
"Very Nice Apartment got every thing you need Handy for all amenities"
"The apartment was great, nice and clean, very modern, only downfall was we could hear the tv, next door, at times it was very loud."
Was only going to do 3 days but a week was so cheap we extended our stay. Plenty to do in the area.

Many individual shops, traditional pubs, restaurants and cafes can be found in and around the town.
