Appledown was perfectly positioned for me and its facilities were perfect too: the room was clean, comfortable and more than big enough for me in the supersize bed! It was a very cold spell and the extra heater was welcome to provide instant warmth on my return in the evening. The breakfast was good, I especially enjoyed the home-made yoghurt,... More

We stopped at Appledown house in July and enjoyed it so much that we came back again for a further week in September. There is always a warm welcome from Gil and Dave the hosts. Our room was excellent, plenty of choice for breakfast, homemade bread and marmalade, fresh eggs from their chickens - wonderful. We will definitely be back... More

The room and en suite were clean and well equipped. Unfortunately the pool was unheated owing to a technical problem, so we didn't try it! Fresh milk for morning drinks was left on our doorstep in a vacuum flask,which was a welcome change from UHT. The breakfast was really good and Gil told us where things came from and made... More

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to review your brief stay with us. We're so sorry to learn that you were disturbed by traffic noise, which we assume was during the late afternoon when you sat out on the patio enjoying the sunshine as it's a busy time of year in the country, with lots of...

We stayed in the garden room and had a warm welcome. The local pub is great for a bite to eat and a few pints. The pool is a bonus on a hot day. Fantastic breakfast with lots on offer. Perfect room for ralaxing, request the garden room! A must for any bike rider on the coast to coast!

We booked this B&B at the last minute and we were made very welcome and invited to their first pool party, which was very welcoming, meeting local neighbors.

We recently had a 5 night stay at Appledown House. Gill and Dave were very welcoming and the accommodation was spotless and comfortable. It was lovely to sit and relax in the evening and watch the wildlife and the scenery from the small conservatory area which was part of the twin bedded room. The food was excellent and Gill gave...
