Visited Appletree Country House for a friend reunion. We all had a lovely time! I especially loved the games and hot tub! Would definitely recommend.

Felicity M.

I particularly enjoyed the cinema room. The house came with everything we needed and the orangery was a nice spot to relax with the rest of my family. We were sad when we had to leave!


Wonderful facilities and provided our group with lots of space and entertainment for a stay of one night. Great for those with kids with lots of room, activities and the garden is massive- plenty of space to play in an safe environment.
