“A home from home”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2017

A cottage that is wonderfully equipped in a situation that is wonderful with hosts who are considerate and extremely welcoming. We would highly recommend it.

“Beautiful House In Beautiful Part Of The Country”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2016

We've just got back from a weeks stay in this gorgeous house - it had everything we could possibly want, and is situated in a lovely part of the world!! Great!! The owners Richard and Caroline were ever so friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. All in all a fab break - thank you.

“Excellent location, well equiped accomodation and helpful hosts”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2016

We had a wonderful weeks break although the weather lived up to it's welsh reputation it did not spoil our holiday. Apple House is a very dog friendly location with a large fenced garden.

“Beautiful cottage, a perfect base for exploring the bookshops of Hay on Wye”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2016

We spent a long weekend at Apple House & cannot rate it highly enough. The cottage is comfortable, well equipped & has fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. Richard & Caroline are excellent hosts even if Richard was up to his ears with lambing! We really enjoyed the welcome pack of Welsh cakes, bread, milk, eggs & delicious Welsh butter. Hay on Wye is an easy 10 - 15 minute drive. We would definitely go back, hopefully with more time to explore & better weather to make use of the hammocks & barbecue.

“Best family mini break ever”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2016

Anyone who is considering setting up a self-catering holiday business should come here. THIS IS HOW IT'S DONE! It will be almost impossible to beat this mini break. A beautifully decorated, clean and cosy cottage with good quality facilities and plenty of space. The countryside is stunning and we had a fantastic walk even in February. The grounds of the cottage are great - we didnt use the BBQ or fire pit but it was lovely to be right in the fields with sheep and horses out of the window. Brilliantly located 15 mins between both Hay-on-Wye and Brecon, and the great little market town of Talgarth and walking distance to two good pubs. Richard and Caroline were really friendly without crowding us, and made sure everything was perfect. I really can't recommend this highly enough

“Quaint, homely, well equipped with quality home wear”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our New Year stay. Richard and Caroline were very welcoming. The cottage had everything we needed, including plenty of wood for the amazing wood burner. There are plenty of nice walks and despite lots of rain we found many treks and then enjoyed nights by the burner. The cottage was decorated beautifully for Christmas with fairy lights and a real tree. Despite the weather we even managed an outdoor fire in the fire pit. Our two dogs also enjoyed their stay. The local pub was dog friendly and welcoming too. Overall, an excellent rental. We look forward to returning in the future.

Two adults, a toddler and a dog - Each of us loved this cottage so much we didn't want to leave! The cottage- which is both tasteful and comfortable in equal measures - is set within the beautiful grounds of the owners own home but with plenty of privacy and a huge private enclosed garden (Much loved by toddler and dog!). It's location on the edge of the Brecon Beacons makes it a perfect base for exploring. With the River Wye nearby, plenty of walks to explore and some nearby pubs, there is never a dull moment! The owners Richard and Caroline are lovely and make you feel really welcome - The welcome pack of yummy Welsh cakes and some essentials was also a really nice touch. We will be back - In fact we have already booked our next break!

“Perfect stay in a lovely cottage”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2015

We just returned from a New Year break at the Apple House and wish our time there could have lasted much longer. The house itself is extremely well finished and provided a wonderful retreat with peace and quiet for us combined with plenty of space (indoors and out) for our children to run and play. The property owners Richard and Caroline were extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming, providing us with great recommendations for places to walk our dogs and eat out. The location is excellent - just a short drive to either Hay-on-Wye or into the Brecon Beacons - and the surrounding countryside very picturesque. All in all a fabulous stay. We hope to return in the future!

“All That's Best In Wonderful Welcoming Wales”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2014

The property is an excellently converted barn which has been tastefully decorated and furnished, and it is a dog friendly environment. It is situated in the extensive grounds of the owners' home but retains its own privacy. On arrival there's a warm and generous welcome on this hillside with bread, butter, eggs, milk and home made Welsh cakes awaiting you, plus there were ample supplies of tea, coffee, sugar and various condiments. Whilst cooking is probably the last thing on one's mind whilst on holiday, if that's your thing there's a superbly furnished modern kitchen just crying out to be tested by the skills of any budding chef lucky enough to stay here. In the adjacent field sheep are roaming, plus two extemely friendly goats, whilst in a neighbour's field the three resident horses are equally friendly. On the doorstep the owners' dogs also like to make themselves known and will do their best to seek attention. The owners are also extremely friendly and helpful and can advise you of all the best places to visit in the locality, of which there are so many. Castles, churches, pretty towns and villages, excellent pubs, lakes and wildlife, hills to climb, plus sweeping and beautiful rivers, are all very close to hand. You will also find this to be an extremely beatiful and very friendly part of the world.
