Had a lovely week in Wards Court 1.. The flat was pretty much as described, clean and well equipped, with speedy wifi. Not sure I'd describe the bathroom as luxurious but it was perfectly fine with good shower pressure. It was a bit chilly when we arrived but that was only because the windows had been opened for Covid airing - it soon warmed up and was very cosy. Enough kitchen equipment for a week's stay, solid plate hobs a bit of a nostalgic challenge, but I knew that before booking :-) Location is excellent. Frampton is a delightful village and Wards Court is right on the Green, with lovely walks from the door. Parking wasn't a problem, we managed to get a nearby space every day. The shop is a 5 minute walk, very well stocked for a village, and is open every day until 7pm, very handy. Can recommend Ley Bistro for breakfast and the Bell for lunch, didn't try the 3 Horseshoes but heard good things about their 3shu pie. Maybe next time.

Went for a weeks fishing however the weather and floods did not help ion that department. Mrs Phillips was a lovely lady and when a parcel for me had got lost she went out of her way to find it, Will be going back in the summer when weather improves and try to fish again. A must try whilst in the locality is the 3 horsehoes pub where they serve the most delicious pie called a 3 shu pie with a variety of fillings.The best tackle shop is Lobby`s in stonehouse who will put you on to the best places and are very reasonable in price. We did not sight see very much as it was a fishing holiday but there are plenty of things to see if you want to nearby.

This was a holiday for fishing.. Mrs Phillips is such a lovely lady and was always on hand if we needed anything. Her homemade jams and chutneys are a delicacy not to be missed, Bed was lovely and comfortable the flat was very clean and tidy. The only thing lacking was the weather but cannot expect anyone to control that. The 3shu pie at the pub is something every visitor should try along with the rhubarb cider. All in all a wonderful experience which made up for the fishing

The bathroom is very big and could maybe benefit from a heated towel rail?

Wards Court 1 is set in a lovely quiet little village which is ideal as a base to visit the area.. It has one Shop which isn't overly stocked so you will need to travel further for a Supermarket, it also has a lovely Coffee Shop and 2 pubs within walking distance. The nearer pub the Three Horseshoes is a must for it's Beer & the Three Shu Pie, but it is also a bit more basic and local than the Bell. The Bell is a more popular Family Pub partly due to it's size and location, but both are worth a visit. As for the Coffee Shop next to Wards Court I'd recommend the Frampton Feast if your prefer not to cook.

A fabulous stay, close to Gloucester and some great Cotswolds walks.. A lovely location with a very useful local shop. Our host was very accommodating and helpful.

We were greeted by friendly lady owner who took us to the rooms which were spotless with everything we needed for our stay. The bed was very comfy and the whole place was perfect. A jar of homemade jam and marmalade was waiting for us on arrival,a nice touch. With a Bistro for breakfast next door and a pub for evening meal two doors up the apartment is perfectly placed if you don't feel like cooking you own meals.

Beautiful area and well appointed flat in a lovely village.. Easy access to Bristol, Cheltenham, Gloucester and all surrounding areas.
Mrs Phelps
February 2018
The flat was a good base for our days out to Gloucester, Bristol and Stroud as well as local walks along the canal.. The bed was very comfortable and the flat warm even in the cold spell we experienced on our week away. There was usually space to park outside. The local shop was a useful resource being a short walk from the flat. We loved the jam made by the owner and left for us to try. We bought more from the shop. It is a beautiful village; we needed more time to explore but left a little early to avoid the severe weather at the end of February.

On arrival at No 1 Wards Court the owner Jackie was extremely friendly and happily the accommodation was exactly as shown in picture's on line, very clean with everything needed for a self catering stay. If requested The Bistro next door will deliver an excellent Breakfast to your room. We sat outside the waterside Café at Saul's Junction watching the narrow boats pass Gloucester with its stunning Cathedral.and Historic Dock is an excellet day out. Despite the weather we had a enjoyable stay and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Nothing was too much trouble for Jackie and her Quiches and Preserves are Famous in Frampton Happy Days

As a last minute booking for Easter weekend we could not have chosen better. It was clean, nicely decorated and had everything you could want. There are two pubs within walking distance, they both do good food. Would definitely book again.
January 2015
The flat was perfect for the two of us and wonderfully situated for any one interested in walking or bird watching. We used the car once to go to Slimbridge and for the other five days walked from the accommodation. Make sure you cross the green walk down the public footpath and take in the scenery and the lakes.
January 2015
Well equipped and ideally situated for any one interested in walking and birdwatching. Easy access to Slimbridges Wetland Centre but enough to do in the local area with walks along the canal and especially across the village green down the public footpath to the wonderful lakes.
Mr Stones

Absolutely everything that we needed was provided. The owner was helpful telling us of places to visit and the easiest way to get there. The location was great, right on the village green with shop and pub serving bar meals in walking distance.

The apartment was recently decorated to a very high standard and everything felt clean and fresh. The lovely big garden was a real bonus. Frampton on Severn is a beautiful, friendly village. It made a very good base for exploring the area.

We rented this apartment for 1 week, we were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The apartment is very well described and is exactly as the photographs depict. Plenty of hot water, well furnished and equipped. We would definitely stay again.

Walking and cycling from door. The website pictures do not do justice to the property, in particular the bedroom is much larger than it appears. A comfortable bed and sofa.

Nice quiet village, lots of space, little traffic friendly feel to area and Saul on the Canal was superb!

We are from South Africa and our currency does not go far. Despite this we felt the stay at our first ever Sykes let, Wards Court, was good value for money. It was comfortable, well equipped, and the owner was friendly and helpful but never intrusive! I particularly liked that she had requested guests to suggest what she could add to better equip the flat, e.g. full length mirror and then had bought these items. Really hope to be able to return. Have recommended Sykes to other South Africans visiting the UK. A lovely part of the UK.

You never quite know what to expect when booking a holiday cottage - we requested non smoking, no pets/animals, twin room etc. All too often these conditions are breached by someone the week before we arrive. However, this property was spotless. Beautifully decorated and finished to a very high spec, with nice comfortable beds. There was a welcome pack which included a bottle of wine, home-made biscuits etc and milk in the fridge - just what we needed after a long trip. Thank you.

A quiet, comfortable, pleasant property, that has been thoughtfully designed and presented. The village green and surrounding area were a nice surprise. The cottage is in a good location for exploring the surrounding area.
September 2011
The flat was perfect for my needs, quiet but not isolated. The village is interesting with lovely walks and close to excellent birdwatching, yet close to city facilities.
Mr Mccollum

The location of the property was quiet and ideal for walking along the canal. Convenient to Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust. Also convenient for touring the Cotswolds or shopping in Gloucester and Cheltenham. The location was relaxing and the owner was most welcoming and helpful.
Mrs Gowans

The apartment was perfect for my needs, quiet and well appointed. It is very suitable for a person travelling alone as it feels safe and is comfortable. The village is delightful and there is plenty to do in the area. I would be very happy to return.
