    We have just had a wonderful week at this lovely cottage. Very comfortable and warm , every thing has been thought through and supplied . The view outside the bedroom balcony is second to none. Very convenient location, walk straight into village, shops and pubs. Central for all you would want to visit in the Cotswolds. Lovely flowers and bottle of fizz on arrival. Can not recommend it highly enough. Will certainly go back.

    Excellent apartment and location with a brilliant view of the river and countryside from the bedroom balcony. Great facilities including good wifi, DVD collection and lots of guides for the area. The only negative was that we couldn't get the heating higher and because of this noticed some draughts when the winds were blowing. Owners very helpful and pleasant with good knowledge of the local area. We thoroughly recommend the property and sitting on the balcony in the summer watching the wildlife and birds would be magic. A short walk to the shops, pubs banks and supermarkets. About 6 miles from Stratford-Upon-Avon, not far from Evesham and Worcester.

    It couldn't be in a better location - overlooking the river and natural environment, but just a short walk along a very picturesque street to the town centre which contained the right mix of shops. The owners were friendly and obliging, and Alcester was a great place to stay being reasonably quiet and tourist-free despite its historical buildings, but within easy reach of many interesting other places to visit.

    The owners made us feel very welcome as did the local people of Alcester with a friendly smile as they pass by. A beautiful garden to enjoy, a river to fish, what more could you want.

    Second time we have stayed in this apartment. I noticed from the visitors book that many had returned for a second or third visit. The location is perfect. I love the bedroom which has a small balcony over the water and a view over the garden. The apartment is immaculately furnished and kept but I did long for a bit softer sofa. The chaise-longue and chairs looked lovely but not for sitting reading for too long. Access is by steps from the garden so be aware if you have mobility issues. Last time my husband had gout, this time I hurt my foot and so both of us have occasion to notice this! The town facilities are minutes away, shops, pubs and local market. Alcester is so close to Stratford you must book in to the RSC theatre before you go. It is perfectly placed to tour the Cotswold villages or visit NT properties or up to Birmingham if you are not escaping city life. The owners are very pleasant and although they live in the attached house there is no infringement of privacy.

    Another excellent week staying on the edge of Alcester. Very friendly with everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. Large barbell in your own private stretch of the River Arrow. Best 7lbs 2ozs.

    A well equipped, clean and comfortable apartment with extensive riverside garden being conveniently situated in Alcester with its small, picturesque town centre. Being in Shakespeare country there are many places of interest within easy reaching distance. Would highly recommend Riverside as a place to stay.
