The town itself is quaint and friendly. Lots of choice for places to eat in the evening. We had our dog with us and were very pleased that both long and shorter walks were close by. Presteigne is a great base if you want to take in the surrounding area. On our short visit we managed Hay on Wye and Rhayader to watch the Red Kites feeding. The house itself is large and well equipped with lots of different bedrooms. Our dog loved the garden and as she explored it right to the end we were delighted to find the orchard there. We did have a cheeky pick and have made good use of the fruit, an unusual but tasty souvenir.
Lovely spacious and comfortable house. Perfect for our extended family break, Grandparents, Parents and 3 Children.
Lovely olde worlde cottage - everything seems original, right down to the beautiful wonky floorboards! It is right in the centre of town and within walking distance of shops and pubs. Very spacious, two bathrooms, ample space for everyone. The kitchen has everything you could possibly want, and the garden is gorgeous. Ann, the owner, was very flexible with check-in times, and responded to messages very promptly. Highly recommended.
Presteigne, a small and friendly Welsh town, still with real shops and green country all round. The house is ancient, half timbered, with a good arrangement of rooms. An exceptionally large garden for a town house. Very quiet street, with free parking at the door. Lots of things to do around - we were there for the Hay Festival but also visited the Sidney Nolan trust farm house, Offa's Dyke, Ludlow Castle and canoed on the Wye (excellent rental company, Want to Canoe? at Hay). Two exceptional meals, the Green Cafe at Ludlow and at the Stagg at Kington. Would be happy to stay there again.
A group of us stayed for two nights as we were attending our friend's wedding, with the groom-to-be staying with us the first night. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, with a working TV and a selection of DVDs available. The kitchen was clean and tidy with all the usual essential appliances and cooking utensils, and the bathroom was also immaculately clean with a bath and shower. We were close enough to be able to walk to the wedding and reception venues, and we managed to find enough on-street parking space for two cars, having all travelled approx. 3 hours to get there. There was a lovely local pub down the road, and a few small shops close by for essentials. Everything was just as expected and we couldn't have asked for any more as guests. Would highly recommend.
Myself, partner, our 10 year old son, 2 year old daughter and my partners 2 best friends have just come back from Apple Tree House. We had a fantastic stay. The house is lovely and very homely. We loved everything about it. The beds were very comfy, lovely evenings spent by the fire playing games which were at the house, little nursery room off main bedroom with small bed, desk, books and rocking horse was great! we weren't fighting for the bathroom as there are 2 bathrooms! our dog also felt at home! we couldn't find any faults and very much enjoyed our stay. We hope to return soon :)
