I thought I had died and gone to heaven. We rented the whole house for the weekend and we could not think of anything that would have made it better. The house is beautiful with fabulous bedrooms overlooking the river or garden, nearly all have en-suite, well-appointed large kitchen, games room and of course the best hot tub in the...

We stayed at Pool House for one night as it was conveniently placed for a local family get together. It is a lovely, well maintained old house in an beautiful, peaceful location right on the banks of the river Severn. We were very well looked after by the owners, Steve and Tia, for whom nothing was too much trouble. The...

Beautiful spot right by the river, very peaceful. Wonderfully comfortable huge four poster and everything necessary for brief stay, right down to fluffy dressing gowns and slippers! Others have mentioned lack of tea/ coffee making facilities in the room, but this really isn't a problem as our hosts offered both on arrival and placed it outside our room on demand...

I am running out of superlatives to describe the enjoyment that my wife and I get from our annual visit to this beautiful house. I have spoken before about the surrounding area and points of interest but never mentioned the house itself. It's location architecture and internal features make it a treasure to be enjoyed for it's own sake. Speak...

This has been our third stay at Pool House whilst we visit the annual Blues Festival. As always a fabulous welcome, nothing is too much trouble for our hosts. The house is beautiful, bedrooms are gorgeous and breakfast is great, it sets us up for the day ahead. Afternoon tea is special and the scones are freshly baked on demand,...

My wife and I had two nights at Pool House during the recent heatwave and its location on the banks of the Severn was ideal. Very comfortable 4 poster bed, big room, excellent breakfast with full English or fruit/cereals (or both) and Tia and Steve were very helpful with recommendations and making us feel very welcome. Upton is a lovely...

Pool House Retreat was where my wife and I chose to stay for our wedding night towards the end of May, after being let down by another establishment. I am so glad we were let down by somewhere else as otherwise we would not have found this absolute gem. I arrived earlier in the day to drop my car off...

Pool House Retreat exceeded our expectations and that doesn't happen very often. We sometimes find that B&Bs are a little disappointing even when they have rave reviews on this site. Not this time. The house is beautiful with gorgeous antique furniture, large rooms, high ceilings and a vast open fire in the dining room. The situation is lovely with gardens...

We stayed here after spending most of the day at the Serenity Rose Spa which is next door to the Pool House. (see separate review) The house is set right by the Severn river, with lovely views and is steeped in history. The gardens are just lovely for a walk around and to see the chickens that produce the eggs...
