A fantastic and very reasonably priced venue for a group of 22 friends and work colleagues to relax.
The property and service was fantastic and faultless. The house is even better than in the photos and is set on beautiful grounds. Even though we had a fair amount of rain over the weekend, we were able to have a great time in the hot tub and use the ample inside space. Don't hesitate to book - this house made my birthday weekend! Charles from staycation was also brilliant and so very helpful throughout the booking process.
The layout was excellent it suited us really well with teens, my elderly parents and two dogs. The beds were extremely comfy, house was very dog friendly and the fridge super large! Great TVs and retro DVD player enjoyed by the teens. Bonython gardens were a delight, so fantastic to be able to stroll around each evening like it was our own! Only issues were no separate downstairs loo, not really a cooks kitchen and no doors to divide downstairs areas to break up sound from chatting and TV watching. We would certainly come again.
We needed a few days away for a mini honeymoon. We came across this place and it was perfect. We loved the welcome hamper of coffee, tea, jam, cereal etc... Was so peaceful and would come back anytime!
We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely house, in an ideal location. Plenty of room for large groups. Well equipped - we had everything we needed. Very much appreciated the welcome hamper, particularly the scones, cream and jam left ready for us! Highly recommended.
Amazing home, with glorious views and beautiful country living. The house is in a small village with a local butchers/bakers and convenience store. Rolling hills that go on for miles and a gorgeous home with generously proportioned rooms. Complete privacy though there are sheep and another house or two in the row! What a fantastic way to enjoy this scenic area.
We had a fantastic family Christmas , lovely house with amazing views. A lovely area of the country with plenty of places to visit. Kevin was brilliant with us, really kind and helpful nothing was too much trouble for him
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
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.
Spacious, clean, well equipped and comfortable. Excellent customer care. Could not have asked for more. Easy access to beach and amenities. Great location for family holidays.
What a fabulous house in such a perfect setting! Was amazing waking up and walking out onto the lake each morning. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the hot tub is such a great added extra! Charles and Kevin couldn't have been more helpful, so thank you for such a great stay! Hopefully we will be back :)
The Oakes is a beautiful home so very comfortable. Log fire every night and the warmth of the huge Aga. A very relaxing break.
Beautiful spacious contemporary and stylishly furnished, overlooking the gorgeous views of the South Downs. We loved it.
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!
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 lovely time and Pete and Irene were very helpful and welcoming. Perfect place for lots of walks and good pub food
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.
Stayed for a week the location is fabulous and the view from the house is beautiful with the open plan living we will definitely be returning
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.
The location of the accommodation was wonderful, we experienced wonderful weather which added to the relaxing atmosphere. We were very disappointed in the cleanliness of the establishment and failure to check that all plugs etc worked prior to the new guests moving in for their stay. To have to ring on a Sunday to make a complaint which was noted prior to us moving in is very sloppy. I do accept that the response to our complaint was immediate however it should not have occurred in the first instance. Downstairs shower room actually had cobwebs in the shower (top left hand back corner). N...more
Family of 4 (adults) who stayed for a long weekend early September. The location and area around Isis lake is kept beautifully. The tennis courts were open for use and the property provided racket and balls. The property itself was adequately furnished and provided just about everything we needed, though upstairs is very basic/minimalist. It's a bit tired and perhaps in need of some decoration (mould in the shower, broken blinds, broken kitchen bin) and given that we paid top price and had reduced check in/out time due to covid, was still in need of a good clean in some places - dust on blind...more
