About John Dutson

As former residents of Worcestershire we bought the apartment in order to enjoy the many attractions Worcester has to offer and to catch up with friends. The beautiful Cathedral is really handy - just a short walk along the riverside - as is the centre of the City. The cricket club is within walking distance and rugby club not far away.

We love watching the life on the waterways, both river and canal, near the flat - the narrowboats and the bird life. The Worcestershire countryside is beautiful. Lovely villages are close at hand with their eating facilities and, of course, the beautiful Malvern Hills for walking and soaking in the atmosphere, remembering that it was here that Edward Elgar found much of his inspiration.

John Dutson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why John Dutson chose Worcester

We love Worcester and the location of this is peaceful but handy to the City and the river.

What makes this apartment unique

We find the apartment convenient to all facilities, yet very relaxing. Without leaving the comfort of the apartment, we can always find something to enjoy through the windows - it could be action on the canal, the gentle activity around or the far flung views over the city.

The walk along either side of the river, is a delight.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in July 2016 when our church choir was in residence at Worchester Cathedral. Unfortunately, he had a broken heel and could only walk on crutches or use a knee scooter. We made the best of it!! This apartment looks over the lock in diglis basin and you can see the canal boats coming thru very well from the balcony. It is also very nicely located for walking the river, shopping, walking to town and has restaurants nearby. It was very pleasant, wonderfully furnished, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. We would definitely stay here again. It was also very quiet at night and any other residents we met were very friendly. I would not recommend it to anyone with a disability as it does not have an elevator.

This is an exceptionally comfortable and spotlessly clean high spec flat in a central location. There are lovely interesting views from the numerous full height windows. The accomodation is extremely well furnished and equipped - with plenty of fluffy towels, nice comfortable beds and sofas, and everything required in a kitchen. There are 2 balconies where you can sit and view canal life! It is a very pleasant 10 minute walk into town with a choice of scenic walks either beside the canal or next to the river. The flat has a spacious feel and is very cosy. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Appreciate review and feel it has great value too. The apartment is very relaxing for anyone to enjoy the view and walks of the waterside area with or without a car. Worcester and the surrounding area, too, have much to offer - the beautiful cathedral, a historic city and lovely countryside.
