“Absolutely outstanding!”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A simply magnificent cottage in the most idyllic rural setting. Apple House offers a blissful retreat from city life and the opportunity to 'get away from it all' whilst at the same time enjoying top class accommodation. If you are feeling energetic, there are plenty of activities on offer in the area (canoeing,horse riding,gorge walking) or if you wish to take things easier, then why not relax in either of the hammocks in the garden whilst enjoying a barbecue or simply watching the world go by from the back garden with stunning views of the Welsh countryside and all the local wildlife. We had a tremendous time here and would highly recommend it and hope to be back again soon - a real gem of a find!

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Last minute booking yet the best holiday as a family we have ever had. Richard and Caz the owners have basically made this into a home from home. It is exceptionally clean and has everything you need. Richard and Caz are there if you need them BUT are not in any way, intrusive. If you have limited time but need to recharge your batteries - choose Apple house. If your standards are high for quality - this is your place. You are so far away from the madding crowd yet a very very short walk to a fully stocked spar and 2 pubs!!! We are already booking our next stay as the quality of accommodation AND the friendliness of Richard and Caz makes it a no brainier. When you wake up in the morning don't expect road noise just nature, and when you lay in 1 of the 2 hammocks, make sure you set an alarm as believe me there is nothing to break the tranquility only your own agenda. Thank you Richard and Caz for providing a home away from home with all the touches of a five star hotel! Oh and thank you to your families for taking the time to chat with us - so natural yet so rare. Dave, shell and Ryan

“Perfect stay at Apple House”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our long weekend at Apple House was great, the accommodation is beautifully laid out with great attention to detail and immaculately kept. The house has a beautiful outlook over fields, the owners were friendly and helpful. The house formed a great base from which to explore Brecon Beacons and Hay-on-Wye, but equally was very comfortable and nice just to chill out in.

“Relax and explore...”
Reviewed 2 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Just returned home from a fantastic 5 night stay at Apple House. The whole stay was very enjoyable, the cottage is very homely and had absolutely everything that we needed. The surrounding views of the hills and fields are beautiful. The location is very peaceful, quiet and secluded and the enclosed garden was perfect for our little dog. The owners, Richard and Caroline, were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay - providing us with a constant supply of firewood and some great tips on places to visit and eat locally. We would definitely visit again!!
