“Lovely cottage, excellent location, highly recommended.”
Reviewed 18 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We have just spent two great weeks at the the Apple House, which is a lovely cottage perfect for a couple. The cottage is comfortable and very well equipped with all needs catered for, it's also in an excellent location for sightseeing with lots of information in the cottage on local walks and places of interest to visit.

Although we were without our car for a week we found the bus service to be an excellent way to see the sights and managed to visit, Wells ( the main bus station is also there) Glastonbury, Bath, Weston-Super-Mare, Cheddar, Axbridge and others. We also took advantage of the many walks that are in easy reach of the cottage.

Our thanks to LInda and Malcom, the owners, for their kindness and offers of lifts when we were without our car, it was much appreciated.

“Lovely Stay”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Have just returned from a 3 night break in this cosy cottage. Set back up the drive from the main road so noise was never an issue. Everything you needed, clean and comfortable, perfect for two. Owner was friendly who gave us some advice on walking routes nearby.
Good wifi but couldn't get any signal until we drove out .
Cottage in great location. We managed to go to Bath on the way to the property and visit Glastonbury, Wells, Cheddar,Ebbor Gorge/Deer Leap and the coast in the few days we were there.
Would visit again .

“Charming cottage in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 23 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Despite staying during the hottest June since 1976, suffering a bad fall and an infected insect-bite (ouch), I had a lovely two week stay here. As a solo traveller (plus dog) the cottage was ideal in size and location. It at the Bottom of the driveway, but still fairly close to the main house - which is not a problem as there is no interference from the owners.

There is a bedroom, bathroom and living room/ kitchen, which I found just right. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with a microwave/grill/cooker, 4 hobs, toaster, kettle, slow cooker, fridge, dish washer (which I never used) and washing machine. Cutlery and plates, etc were all good quality. It is not massive, but is a perfect size for a holiday cottage.

TV has free channels and there is a dvd player and radio.

Bathroom is wet room-type set up, so no steps into shower.

Everything worked well and seemed robust.

Westbury is a good area to be based, between Cheddar and Wells, and on the edge of the Mendips. Lots of places to visit, but I really recommend time spent in the Mendips, which was beautiful. Do admire the views from Deer Leap, and explore Ebbor Gorge. The pub opposite looks good, but I also found The Queen Victoria at Priddy, and The Crown at Churchill both excellent. Chew Valley Reservoir area is beautiful, and there re several local farm shops which sells local meats, cheese and vegetable, and often have tea rooms.

Westbury is easily placed for Wells, Glastonbury, the coast and Bristol.
