  • We loved staying in the cute Hansel and Gretel cottage where birdsong was all we heard!

  • A perfect cottage in a perfect spot!
    We've had a great break here, the cottage is very comfortable, the beds especially so! And we've had some wonderful walks in Bentley Wood which is magical.
    Thanks to kind hosts Rosie and Rupert. We hope to come back.

  • We stumbled across this cottage at the very last minute and couldn't believe how beautiful it was when we arrived. The setting was perfect and it was wonderful to be able to step out into the woods whenever we wished. The cottage had games and toys for the children and was the perfect size for a family of four. It was so comfortable and well furnished with a lovely little garden to bask in. We feel so lucky to have stayed here and I would highly recommend to anyone wondering whether to book. It really is a beautiful as it looks and is a wonderful part of the world. We really didn't want to leave!

  • The cottage is a little sanctuary. Sitting in the garden watching the swallows swooping overhead and listening to the birdsong has been quite special.

  • The best cottage I have stayed in with young children. Beds amazingly comfortable. So well equipped for cooking. Loads to do. Fantastic pubs in Salisbury. We will come again!

    — Mr & Mrs S, Worcester, 31 Oct 2020
  • Many thanks for a relaxing stay. Really enjoyed getting lost in the woods....twice!

    — Mr & Mrs M, Essex, 26 Aug 2020
  • What a fabulous little cottage! Very clean and equipped with everything we needed. The outside area was great for breakfast and evening drinks. We loved the Swallow House for our morning yoga! The perfect spot for relaxation and exploring the area.

    — Mr & Mrs T, Surrey, 18 Jul 2020
  • We had a late autumn break at this lovely cottage. It is perfectly positioned for exploring the area and it’s proximity to Bentley Woods makes it perfect for long walks with the dog. Rosie has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. We feel completely refreshed!

  • We enjoyed our stay - lovely area. Went to the Silver Plough twice for lunch - great food! Hope to come back some time.

    — Msr & Mme D, France, 03 Aug 2019
  • Thank you for our lovely stay, also for the milk and flapjacks which were a welcome treat on arrival. The cottage and surrounding areas are perfect for a break away.

    — Mr & Mrs F, Kent, 27 Jul 2019
  • Apple Tree Cottage has been the perfect place to say goodbye to 2018 and greet 2019. It is a beautifully and generously appointed cottage - light and cosy and Rosie made us very welcome. We've enjoyed the local sights and the highlight was a sunny visit to Stonehenge on New Years Day. Thank you for a lovely stay: will recommend highly.

    — Mr & Mrs L, London, 02 Jan 2019
  • A fabulous week in a lovely cottage in a perfect location. What more could we ask! Very comfortable, especially the bed with beautiful bedding. Everything we need was provided including a welcome pack. Our dogs enjoyed their walks in magical Bentley Wood, as indeed we did. Thank you Rosie.

    — Mr & Mrs P, Southport, 01 Dec 2018
  • A wonderful find at short notice and so many places to visit. We even managed to fit in an afternoon at Highclere Castle (without pre-booking!). A very comfortable and relaxing week: thank you.

    — Mr & Mrs G, Suffolk, 04 Aug 2018
  • Apple Tree Cottage is the perfect place to explore the counties of Wiltshire and Hampshire. Walking from the door into Bentley Wood you are almost guaranteed to see deer, infact, they stand and watch you! We had a wonderful stay, the cottage is well equipped and comfy and Rosie provides that little extra touch; with delicious flapjacks, ground coffee, jug of milk and the essentials; tea, washing up liquid/tablets, kitchen towels, loo rolls etc., meaning you don't have to take it all with you. And a delightful enclosed garden with patio furniture where we ate our breakfast most days while planning our day ahead - try and see at least one of the White Horses of Wiltshire, Old Sarum, Salisbury and Winchester Cathedrals and the New Forest is a must - and relaxeded in after a busy but exhilarating day. We loved it and Sam our dog did too. Thank you Rosie

    — Patricia, Glenn & Sam, 30 Jun 2018
  • You have thought of everything including the local amenities and attractions information, board games, magazines and DVDs. Plus details like tin foil, washing up liquid not to mention ground coffee, milk and flapjacks! Thank you so much - the perfect escape!

    — Mr & Mrs E, Kent, 01 Jun 2018
  • Absolutely lovely stay in this gorgeous little cottage. Well equipped, cosy and lovely decor and furnishings. Had a great walk in the woods and saw a herd of 20 deer run across our path: WOW!

    — Mr & Mrs E, Lancashire, 02 Apr 2018
  • Lovely cottage, clean and comfy, everything you could need. Hosts friendly but unobtrusive, hope to come back soon.

    — Mr & Mrs B, Kent, 26 Mar 2018
  • A perfect post-Christmas bolthole! Friendly hosts and easy, efficient (last minute) booking....

    — Miss S, Berkshire, 02 Jan 2018
  • We enjoyed ourselves so much and thought your cottage was fantastic. I loved the fact there were games and CDs to watch instead of TV. Thanks for providing maps too - it was all great!

    — Mr & Mrs Gosman, Suffolk, 05 Nov 2017
  • A lovely week made possible by this lovely cottage - everything you need catered for. So quiet and peaceful and we were lucky enough to breakfast outside with birdsong every morning. Thank you!

    — Mr & Mrs N, Kent, 30 Sep 2017
  • We had a lovely break. Everything provided for. Need not bring so much with me next time! Lovely walks in Bentley Wood. Beautiful part of the country. Thank you.

    — Mr & Mrs B, Northampton, 03 Sep 2017
  • The cottage is wonderful. Dad and I had a very relaxing few days. The milk and flapjacks were a really welcome sight after a long journey. Hope to see you again soon.

    — Ms W, Milton Keynes, 08 Aug 2017
  • We had a lovely time, the cottage is beautiful and everything has been thought of. The girls loved it and the dog loved the woods!

    — Mr & Mrs S, Yorkshire, 03 Aug 2017
  • Thank you so much for such a lovely place. It is all lovely. I can't remember the last time we slept so well. The children loved watching the birds feeding the chicks in the summer house.

    — Mrs T, Cumbria, 29 Jul 2017
  • We adored your little cottage. Bramble had excellent fun. Thank you for your warm welcome and graciousness. A beautiful week.

    — Mr & Mrs E, Hampshire, 30 Jun 2017
  • I haven't slept so well for months!

    — Mrs P, Isle of Wight, 16 May 2017
  • We absolutely loved the cottage, it was perfect (so well equipped!) and will definitely come back!

    — Mr & Mrs B, Kent, 01 May 2017
  • Thank you for the chance to enjoy this lovely cottage and area. We've explored, walked and soaked up the sunshine all week - what lucky people we have been!

    — M & Mme M, Paris, 18 Aug 2016
  • We had a wonderful time in this well equipped and truly delightful cottage. It couldn't have been better placed to enjoy Salisbury and The New Forest. Having the woods on the doorstep was great for an after dinner stroll. We saw lots of deer and Saffron our dog had a fabulous time exploring. Waitrose in Salisbury meant great food without 'proper cooking'. Thank you for your ability to be helpful yet completely unobtrusive.

    — Mr & Mrs H, Stourbridge, 11 Jun 2016
  • Thank you for a relaxing break in this delightful little cottage. All the thoughtful little touches that make it a 'home from home' were most welcome. We have enjoyed our stay and will recommend to our friends.

    — Mr & Mrs H, Devon, 21 May 2016
  • Absolutely gorgeous cottage. We had a great time relaxing and walking in the woods. Grace our dog loved the woods. Thank you so much.

    — Mr & Mrs M, London, 02 Jan 2016
  • A lovely hideaway in beautiful surroundings. The cottage is delightful and we feel really rested. The perfect get away retreat. Thanks again.

    — Miss S, Brighton, 28 Dec 2015
  • What a beautiful cosy cottage - we've had a lovely time and felt very comfortable here. You have thought of everything.

    — Mr and Mrs H, Essex, 06 Nov 2015
  • Comfortable, cosy, excellent centre. We really appreciated the quiet and the peacefulness. Maps and up-to-date visitor information really useful - thank you very much.

    — Mr & Mrs C, Shropshire, 10 Oct 2015
  • A big thank you for making us feel so welcome. We loved the walks and Salisbury itself and were lucky enough to see the Magna Carta in the Cathedral. I am sure we will be back.

    — Mr & Mrs M, Bucks, 18 Sep 2015
  • Wish we could have stayed longer in this lovely cottage and location. Beautiful walks on the doorstep and so much to do out and about. We have had a great week and would like to come again. Thank you.

    — Mr & Mrs B, Cornwall, 29 May 2015
  • Thank you for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. Bluebell woods glorious this time of year. Many a happy time walked with our Jack Russell Lou. She enjoyed it too! A quiet and relaxing stay was just what we needed. Thank you again.

    — Mr & Mrs H, Kent, 09 May 2015
  • A memorable tour of the area, returning each evening to the cosy cottage. We leave totally refreshed and looking forward to coming back to see all those places we didn't have time to see this time.

    — Mr & Mrs E, Manchester, 03 Apr 2015
  • Have had a lovely week at your beautiful cottage! The children loved going for walks in the woods - especially at night!

    — Mr & Mrs N, York, 12 Feb 2015
  • We have had a wonderful time. Everything about the cottage is first class. It is a great base for exploring the New Forest, Wiltshire and Dorset. You made us truly welcome.

    — Mr & Mrs T, Essex, 19 Sep 2014
  • We've had an absolutely brilliant week. Peppa Pig World (twice!), Furzey Gardens (magical), Stonehenge....and walks in the woods (no deer though, probably due to 2 very noisy toddlers!) Apple Tree Cottage has had everything we needed - its been cosy and comfortable. We'd love to come back!

    — Mr & Mrs H, Liverpool, 01 Sep 2014
  • We have had a lovely week in Apple Tree Cottage. Very, very well equipped.

    — Mr & Mrs G, Surrey, 16 Aug 2014
  • Thank you for your warm welcome and sharing this lovely cottage. We felt at home immediately! We enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen, the swallows, the gardens, the woods, all the games and all the places we've visited: WInchester (top!), Bath (top!) Oxford (top!), New Forest (superb!) Portsmouth (surprising) and Stonehenge (mystical).
