I stayed at Apple Tree Cottage from 2nd to 9th June 2017 with my Mum and brother. The cottage and garden are idyllic and there are beautiful views all around, (though sadly the weather was atrocious so we did not see everything at its best). However the location is somewhat remote and that needs to be factored in when planning days/evenings out. KiRead moretchen is well equipped, plenty of toilet/bathroom facilities but living room quite small. Bedrooms very pretty and spacious. A most enjoyable stay. Hide

We immediately felt very welcome and at home in this cottage. It is very comfortable and well-equipped with good quality kitchen machines, furniture throughout the house and cutlery, crockery etc. In particular the fresh white bed linen could not have been better.

An idyllic hamlet in an almost hidden valley, off the beaten track (though near a good A road from Yeovil to Dorchester), with easy access to many peaceful walks and places to visit. The cottage looks out onto the two most picturesque thatched cottages you could ever care to see, and while the cottage itself is a bit more utilitarian that has many Read moreadvantages in terms of convenience and comfort. Highly recommended. Hide
