"Very good, nicely finished, just a few improvements"

Nice 'extra Christmas' welcome with wine and chocs, although welcome tray was a little sparse. Apple Tree Cottage was a lovely warm cottage and is an ideal location from which to visits the … More

Thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The Christmas tree was on the little table in the lounge and there is an additional little table in the conservatory if you wanted to move it. The outside light needed a new bulb and the torch new batteries, both are now done and we will add them to our weekly check list.

"A very charming place"

This place is just right for all the city boys and girls who crave to get out of their tiny central London apartments from time to time and enjoy a really nice cottage and the countryside.

The cottage looks so charming it's hard to believe it's real. Inside it's pretty spacious with a double bedroom of a good size and another very large bedroom with 3 single (but pretty large) beds. The bathroom is also bigger than I expected.
The living room and the terrace are very cozy, just right for a relaxing night in with a glass of wine in front of a log burner.
The kitchen has everything you need to cook a nice meal. It might have been a good idea if there was more than 1 frying pan there, but since it was just 2 of us we were fine.
I spoke to the owners through emails in the run up to the holiday and they seemed a very nice and friendly couple.
All in all - the best thing you can think of for a relaxing weekend away from London.

"Perfect place, perfect location"

This property has everything you need, so well kitted out, from the DvD's to the fireplace. The best clothes washer and dryer, quick and efficient. Good shower and the lovely flowers on arrival a very nice touch. Lower Swell is a great spot, friendly village and the Golden Ball pub, has excellent food and very friendly locals. We used this as a base for the Cotswolds and it was perfect, there is a large Tesco in Stow so good for supplies. Owners very quick to respond and answer any questions.

"Great cute cottage - perfect get away!"

This was a very well maintained cottage. As a group of 5 girls we found the space really nice, the venue very clean with lots of friendly surroundings.

We stayed during a very hot weekend and the cottage was nice and cool inside but with loads of pretty outside areas. It was nice and clean, with everything we needed and very friendly owners. We would defiantly stay here again.
