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,

Lovely spotlessly clean accommodation that has everything you need. Would like to have stayed there longer as the surrounding area is so relaxing. The studio feels more like your own cottage and the upstairs is quaint. Breakfasting whilst overlooking the village green towards the local pub is pleasant . The location of the studio is a good base for quite... More

I first discovered this little gem a few years ago and have been back many times since. Relaxing, comfortable, stylishly furnished and maintained with great care, Applehay Studio has become my favourite bolt hole. Although close to the owners' house, it's private and cosy - a perfect retreat in a glorious location. And now it's just got even better. With... More

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... More
