10 of us stayed here for 4 nights. A wonderful house in a breathtaking location. The communal areas of the house were large a spacious, so people weren't crammed together for the weekend. All the bedrooms are lovely with comfortable beds and duvets. The whole house was spotlessly clean, well equipped (especially the kitchen) and an absolute pleasure to be in
A fantastic and very reasonably priced venue for a group of 22 friends and work colleagues to relax.
Fantastic holiday cottage right on one of the larger lakes. Our first time to this area, there are so many activities and things to do we ran out of time to fit them all in. With the kids out paddleboarding and kayaking from the back door or just sat in the hot tub, it was difficult to make them leave the house. The bridlepaths and footpaths linking to other lakes and the village are great too. Will definitely be back.
I hosted 18 of my friends here for a pre-wedding celebration. The house was well equipped with amenities, groceries etc. As well as being spotlessly clean, every part of the house was in good condition with a wide variety of TV's, Stereos etc. The pictures do not do this place justice - it is absolutely breath taking. A big thank you to Debbie, the house manager, who ensured our needs were catered and overall was just a superb person. 10/10.
We have stayed in a number of Holiday Lets over the years but this surpassed all of them.The welcome pack was amazing and the owner, Ted, very welcoming. ( He even let our grandson sit in his tractor!). The quality of the accommodation was outstanding and it had the most well equipped kitchen that I could have hoped for. Location was within easy ( 30mins) reach of the coast. We would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home and are going to suggest it to other members of our family as an excellent venue for them to get together in for family reunions. We especially liked the attention ...more
We were impressed with the property on all counts. It was clean, modern, warm and well equipped. We were also impressed with the splendid welcome hamper which included the essentials plus a number of luxuries. The housekeeper was charming and popped round to check everything was ok. The beds were excellent - proper king size with luxury bed linen. The rooms were large, warm, well furnished and nicely decorated. The kitchen was well equipped. All in all couldn't be better.
Beautiful spacious contemporary and stylishly furnished, overlooking the gorgeous views of the South Downs. We loved it.
We found this accommodation absolutely perfect for our wedding celebration weekend. We had our two families stay with us so booking both cottages worked so well whilst still being able to socialise together in one cottage but having space to relax or breakfast separately. The large room worked really well as a Bridal room and felt really special to rerun to once we were married. The accommodation was beautifully decorated, very clean and well organised. The owner was lovely and very helpful and is on hand if you need them. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to make the two cottag...more
We had a great time in Smiddy Cottage. A cosy, fully equiped cottage in the great nature of Exmoor. Warm and friendly welcome from the owners and great recommendations on were to go. We absolutely loved it!
A lovely cottage with comfortable beds and a fire place so enjoyable on rainy days Charles is really ready to help with quick answering even in tr week end We highly recommend staycation holidays
We had a lovely time and Pete and Irene were very helpful and welcoming. Perfect place for lots of walks and good pub food
We had the most wonderful time staying in lapwing lodge. The accommodation is perfect, with all the things you possibly need. The fresh bread, eggs, butter and milk are a lovely touch. The hot tub is a lovely touch after a long day exploring and dog walking. Kevin is a wonderful host and is always at the end of the phone if you need him. The location is perfect, central to lots of lovely villages and things to do. We hope to return soon in the summer months.
We greatly enjoyed our stay. Lovely cottages next to owners house. Very well furnished with all you could need. Nice touch with a very nice cream tea on arrival plus fresh flowers on the kitchen table. Beautiful scenery and amazing walks for families and dog owners. Would stay again.
All 8 of us agreed that we had a lovely time at Apple Mill. Charles at Staycation Holidays made the whole booking experience flow very easily and was a friendly chap. Apple Mill had some lovely features remaining from its time as a working building. It was a luxurious place to stay and felt like home very quickly. The kitchen was very well stocked with loads of plates, cups, cutlery, etc. Such a change from some of the places we have visited! Some of us found the hot tub a bit uncomfortable as the water temperature dropped and that area could do with a light for safety.
All you need for a lovely break away in the countryside. Not far away from a little town but far enough away to be in the countryside.
Absolutely beautiful area with lots of interesting places to visit, too. unfortunately no view from the house/terrace. The outside chairs were not clean, but besides that, the house was fine.
