"What a gem!"

This is just a lovely place to stay! The setting on the village green is stunning and the accommodation is spotlessly clean and very well thought out with tremendous attention to detail. Alan and Jo, the owners of the cottage, live next door to the Studio and are very friendly and really take a lot of trouble to ensure that everything is just right. When you arrive there is always a bowl of fresh fruit, tea, coffee, fresh milk and fresh flowers. They are around if you need them, offering ideas for excursions and providing local knowledge.

We have stayed at Applehay a few times now, both on a B+B basis where Jo provides a lovely breakfast, and on a self catering basis and we really appreciate the flexibility they provide. It's not like most self catering cottages with their rigid Saturday to Saturday booking requirements nor is it like a standard B+B where you often feel as if you are living in someone else's house. The Studio is the best of both worlds and I would say it is really unique in the area (we've tried a few) for the combination of quality of accommodation, value for money and excellent service. We'll be back!
