We booked Applehay Studio after seeing the many positive reviews and photos and as base for exploring the Dorset region. But it was even nicer than we imagined! The hosts could not have been more welcoming and friendly, and the studio is private, quiet, spotless, comfortable and full of charm, as is the tiny village of Semley where it is... More

We were greeted by David and Jo as soon as our car pulled onto the drive! They were so friendly and we chatted away for some time before going into the beautiful clean and well equipped studio (which is more like a small cottage). The shower room was spotless and the large towels were so soft and fluffy. The bedroom... More

This is our second stay at Applehay Studio, and it was as good as the first! Semley is a lovely village with a good pub and village shop. Applehay Studio is a small cottage, very well appointed, beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. There is just everything you need to make your stay comfortable, including a garden with a nice sitting... More

To us, Applehay seemed more of a one-bedroom cottage than a studio. We were delighted to stay there for a few days. It is located in the pretty village of Semley, just outside the very ancient and interesting town of Shaftesbury. Nearby are many historic sites and good walks, plus nice pubs and restaurants--with a country pub and village shop/cafe... More

We were traveling to a meeting and looked for a B&B to stay in on our route. We came along this charming studio nestled in the village of Semley near Shaftesbury.
