Apple tree cottage is quiet quaint an full of character it sits in a rural setting yet within easy reach of many places of interest. The cottage itself is well provided for a comfortable stay and time spent sitting in the summer house is not wasted.
There are loads of nice walks and cycling opportunities in the area. The nearest pub was the compass in Stansfield which was nice with real ales on tap and fish and chip night Fridays.
In summary a place I want to visit again.
My work colleague and I stayed for 5 nights here and I must say, when I walked in, I was totally blown away - the pictures don't do justice! The property is stunning! Henry and Hayley have done a magnificent job in lovingly restoring this stable conversion. The rooms were lovely and the little touches, like leaving us some grocery supplies (and wine!) were so much appreciated - thank you.
Why this property didn't get 5 stars is that we were really cold on the first evening, the heating system didn't work at all and despite the owner coming over and adjusting the boiler system, we were still cold coming back from a long day in Ipswich the next evening. Though we were told there was under floor heating, this didn't impact at all; but to their credit the owners brought across two large 'workshop' electric fan heaters which did warm us up a lot through the rest of the week. However, as you know with electric fan heaters, once you turn them off, the temperature in the vicinity can drop quickly. The owners did try their best, very responsive, and outside of the heating, everything else was great!
I know in the late spring and definitely the summer, this property will be fabulous - one won't need to worry about the heating! And secondly, in the area there is so much to explore and see - which unfortunately, due to work, we didn't get to do much exploration.
Anyway, suffice to say, we would definitely recommend this property for small groups and families.
