We had a wonderful stop over and could not have been made more welcome. We were exhausted and were made to feel like family. The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean, the food was great and the wine flowed! The garden is wonderful and I wished we'd stayed longer. The rest of the family were later,than expected and Malcom and Edward... More

Edward and Malcom were the perfect hosts. After a long and tiring drive from Calais, we where made to feel so welcome. After settling into our beautiful room, Edward made us a big pot of tea and settled us down in the garden to unwind, even Leo the dog came and sat with us. Pre diner drinks where served in... More

We had two very enjoyable nights at Appletons as we travelled to the south of France and back again a week later. We were greeted with a cup of tea in the garden, then had pre-dinner drinks in the garden with Malcolm and Edward and their other guests. Dinner on the terrace with the other guests made us feel more... More

An excellent stop over location. Great for the dogs with big garden and nearby walks. The garden room was just perfect for us. Good food and drink in abundance. Great company. Had a lot of fun. Malcolm and Edward are excellent hosts.

Wonderful stay with most welcoming hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Everything was perfect and so so clean. Log fire in lounge was an absolute treat as we live in heated flat, how better than to rest with a drink around the fire. Will revisit again soon.

we were greeted by a generous pot of tea and great company at dinner with generous portions. One of the comfiest beds we have slept in (and I am fussy). Lashings of toast and creamy scrambled eggs for breakfast. What's not to like? The only place we have ever stayed at with those brilliant insect screens so you could sleep... More

We stayed overnight on our trip back to the UK on our motorbikes. We were made to feel so welcome by Edward and Malcolm on our arrival, with a welcome drink. We took the opportunity to join our hosts in a fabulous meal in the evening, making the most of their vegetable garden produce. The bed was the most comfortable... More

We stayed here as part of a journey South from the UK. What an excellent choice! Malcolm and Edward made us feel comfortable and welcomed right from our arrival, offering a cup of tea whilst we sat in their splendid garden (very welcome after a 6+ hour drive from Calais and getting lost in Paris). Our room was well furnished,... More
