We stayed here shortly after Christmas for two nights for a brief break together and to enjoy the charms of Wiltshire and Dorset. Jo and Alan were the perfect hosts and were very accommodating for us when we arrived several hours late. They made us feel incredibly welcome and this place was a home away from home for us with...

It would have been difficult to have found a better retreat for just a few days at such a reasonable price. The location was lovely and quiet, without being isolated: the studio was spotlessly clean and well provisioned with everything we needed. Excellently located for us to get out to the Dorset coast and surrounding countryside; loads of National Trust... More

If you want to leave the Rat Race behind for a few days but don't want to stray too far from civilisation, Applehay Studio is perfect. I've stayed here four times and every time there has been a warm welcome, the place has been beautifully prepared and there is everything you need from a spotless bathroom to a brilliant little...

My partner and I stayed for two nights in the studio apartment. The decor is gorgeous, modern but still retaining a cottage style. It is clean, warm and cosy. You are provided with a breakfast pack including bread, croissants, milk, eggs, juice and cereals. The only slight criticism is that in a continental breakfast I would expect cheese and cold... More

The owners have done everything to make a stay here as comfortable and welcoming as possible. The attention to detail is everywhere from fluffy towells to good lighting, quality appliances and attractive decor. Everything is spotlessly clean and easy to use. The wonderful selection of books on the local area was the icing on the cake.

I have recently just got back from a stay at Applehay studio and it was fantastic. The owners were very welcome and friendly and helped us with different places to eat. We had a very nice continental breakfast each morning and had a nice garden to enjoy the beautiful weather. We are in our mid twenties and although it was... More

We've just returned from another delightful stay at Applehay and are already planning another visit. It's the perfect spot for recharging the batteries - such a peaceful location - yet there's plenty to do nearby. The studio is impeccable and we have always been made very welcome by the owners. It's a great base for walking and cycling and within... More

A delightful studio in a beautiful part of England, guaranteed to bring your pulse rate down. Jo and Alan, the proprietors, are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. A great area for walking, cycling and sight-seeing. The generously stocked fridge is a plus!

Stayed at Applehay for a couple of nights. Excellent accommodation. The studio is self contained so really is a home from home. The owners keep the place well maintained and clean, and they are both very friendly and welcoming. Great selection of breakfast provisions. a very peaceful surrounding. Thanks,
