"This is the second time I have stayed at Commonside."
It is a delightful property very comfortable and clean with a lovely garden. Dave, the owner is friendly and helpful. It is within walking distance of the lovely canal and canal basin. I certainly will book this cottage again.
"Lovely owner mostly clean but could do with freshen up, few items need fixing but overall nice location friendly welcome and close to several attractions."
10 min walk into town along river and locks was lovely.had to leave little early due to family illness at home
"We stayed in 15A instead due to collection of keys which was absolutely fine with us."
The property was very spacious and clean. The owner popped over on the Monday to introduce himself and give us a lot of information about the area and where to visit. Sadly our visit was for business and not leisure. That said, we appreciated his visit. He was friendly and knew the area well. We made use of the bath and shower (both were fine). We opted to have the downstairs bedroom off the lounge. We really wish we never as we gave our accompanying guest the other double bedroom who wouldn’t swap with us. The mattress in the downstairs bedroom was not comfortable at all whereas the mattresses upstairs were. However, we didn’t fancy sleeping in single beds for 3 nights (we spent 1 night in them though) so persevered. I would highly recommend the owner changes this mattress. We also found that bedroom quite cold even with the heating on it just didn’t seem to get warm. The only other thing which was off putting was the super sensitive fire alarm in the kitchen. That wasn’t ideal setting that off at 7am every morning. Other than that we did have a nice stay with plenty of utilities readily available in the property and supermarkets not too far away. If we were to return to Stourbridge whether it be for business or leisure we would return here but we would absolutely have the upstairs double bedroom!
"This property is well built and beautifully equipped as far as furniture, fittings and electrical equipment are concerned."
HOWEVER sadly it lacks the day to day items that make a holiday. There is a top of the range microwave but no bowls to go in it. There is nothing to make coffee with. The cutlery and utensils are basic and inadequate. Sadly also it is lacking some attention to broken and missing items. The area is superb. We had a great holiday. Would we go back to Stourport - yes. Would we return to No 15 - No. It's a shame, it could be superb.Come on Sykes inspect it please. It's letting you and your customers down. Alan and Heather

"Comfortable cottage in good reach of many tourist attractions."
"Very friendly host and good at recommending places to eat."
Comfortable accommodation being close to the town centre.
"Only one wc and was upstairs- this was a real problem for my wife who has limited mobility, however , I guess I should of read the details?"
Both bedrooms are in the roofspace, unable to get in or out bed with ease
"Online information needs updating as the cottage has been refurbished and is now very modern."
Lovely property. Plenty of extras provided by owner. Nice garden. Would suit walkers very well as has the river, common and canal just a few minutes walk away.
"Common side was a lovely property to stay, very clean ,providing home from home facilities."
Beautiful rear garden and off road parking. Situated minutes from the beautiful river Severn providing lovely walks ,parklands and self drive and river boat trips. A fair ground and skate park provides great entertainment for families too Minutes away from locks and the stourport basin very picturesque and short walk into town centre. Lots of choice in local pubs restaurants and supermarkets . Surrounded by lots of towns and villages, National trust and English heritage properties. The owner was very friendly and extremely helpful with information. We wouldn't hesitate recommending this property and look forward to our next stay.
"My husband and I ( both oap's 70 and 87) booked this accommodation 'Commonside' 3/8/20 to 7/8/20 described as a cottage by Sykes Cottages online."
I would call it a small bungalow rather than a cottage, as it sits on a new housing estate. The bungalow itself was clean and in a quiet area, but its was outside of the main town and shopping area. We found the bedroom claustrophobic the description of bedroom had said ceiling on one side is low, but I'm only 5ft and I kept bumping my head each time I got in and out of bed. Sykes, online said shops 5mins and pub 2mins away from bungalow, that's only correct if your a young fit person or you go by car - if your oap's like my husband and I and not very good on your legs it takes approximately 10mins at least to pub (which is a British Legions club) and 15mins at least to a Tesco store. As the law stands your not suppose to drink and drive meant we would have too struggle walking there and back and coming back along a dark quiet road - no thank you! We booked this accommodation taking as it was written that pub was only 2mins away then we could have strolled to pub for our evening meal and a drink. We have used Sykes Cottages before, but on this occasions we are very disappointed especially with the online information given. It ended up us coming home a day early from our holiday break, because we felt let down by description given online by Sykes Cottages.
Many thanks for you feedback, we have fed your comments back to the owner in order to maintain our property standards. Your views are as valued as your initial booking so that we can keep providing the best UK holiday experience. Your points will also be reviewed to ensure that our property descriptions are accurate and not misleading. Property Owner

Excellent accommodation very comfortable in a nice central area for discovering Shropshire and Worcestershire the premises manager very very helpful and accommodating too It is the second time I have booked Commonside and would definitely book again in the future Big thank you Dave Charrington
"The house was dirty ."
Didn't look like the carpets had been hoovered. The window cills had dust and dead insect on them. cob webs in various places. The kitchen work top was dirty. Didn't think we would go on holiday to have to clean our own accommodation not good. Have had two other holidays with Sykes and the accommodation have been exceptionally clean. Hope this is a one off.
"Very straightforward accessing keys."
We were met by the owner as we arrived. He was very friendly and thorough with his local knowledge. He advised us where the local railway station was and how easy it was to travel to Birmingham without driving in peak hour traffic. All instructions/directions from yourselves were very accurate.
"Accommodation manager was very friendly, helpful and reassuring and lives close to the property."
We would use the property again if returning to the area.
"Excellent accommodation especially for the price the Caretaker Mr Packwood was very helpful, welcoming and informative cannot fault the accommodation at all."
.. This is the second holiday using Sykes cottages the first being in Ireland and will be definitely using you again... Big thankyou Sykes Cottages for making our holiday special again
"The cottage was well furnished, heating was excellent, nice large television, beds were comfortable."
Bathroom had bath and shower facilities. A very minor complaint which the owner should be aware of, there was no welcome pack, no tea bags, no coffee, no milk, no visitors book etc it was only minor things but we have found these in most of the properties we have rented.
"TV not working on arrival - engineer fixed that evening but the signal was lost the next day, and was intermittent throughout the week."
We used the DVD player instead once we had replaced the batteries. Half the light bulbs in the kitchen had to be replaced. A curtain rail kept falling off in the living room. Although the owner was friendly and helpful and sorted the problems quickly the accommodation was in need of a really good clean, especially the carpets which had a lot of pet hair on them, door and drawer handles were missing, remote controls needed new batteries. Overall the accommodation was OK, but not up to the standard we normally get from a Sykes Holiday
"We really loved the 3 weeks in the Cottage."
The only thing was missing is the free wi-fi and nothing more.
"Stay here while having some work done on our house."
Very friendly owner and parents. Lovely comfortable accommodation. Some lovely walks along the river and common
"A very comfortable property."
Very easy access to the town via the Riverside walk. Stourport is an interesting town with good facilities.
"Very well presented cottage."
Obliging and considerate host.

Only thing I found wrong was it could have offered a small welcome pack as we had to go and buy dish clothes washing up liquid toilet roll etc on arrival, I like the personal touches that make you feel at home, but had a very enjoyable stay and will return again with my dish cloth (ha ha)

About the location
Worcester 12 miles.
Nestling amongst the beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Severn Valley, the ancient riverside town of Stourport-on-Severn is a popular tourist destination, with many black and white timbered buildings and an abundance of amenities and activities. Many individual shops, traditional pubs, restaurants and cafes can be found in and around the town. Visitors to Stourport may choose to take a cruise along the river, enjoy a day's fishing, take a ride on horseback or bike along the many lovely bridleways, or stroll through the heather clad hills, woodlands and heathland of Hartlebury Common, a 200 acre SSSI Nature Reserve on the outskirts of the town. The market town of Bewdley is just a short drive away and has been described as 'the most perfect Georgian town in Worcestershire'. Bewdley boasts riverside pubs and cafes, antique shops and craft galleries, all surrounded by beautiful countryside. The area has some of the best attractions in the country, with the Severn Valley Steam Railway, West Midlands Safari Park, Cadbury World and the Black Country Living Museum, numerous National Trust properties and many colourful events throughout the year including riverside festivals, regattas and open air concerts. Also well worth a visit are the picturesque town of Ludlow with its magnificent 13th century castle, Ironbridge Gorge Museum and the medieval Wyre Forest.
