Reviews for Apple House

Apple House Reviews


  • Great house, location and activities

    Posted by Trevor J on 19/09/2016

    We are an extended family of six, including three adult children (16, 19, 22), parents (older than 22) and my mother (89) who had a brilliant week at Apple House. With 5 decent size / large bedrooms the house could easily and happily accommodated 10.

     

    What made the holiday outstanding were the amenities (great indoor pool, tennis court, trampoline, table tennis, gym etc. etc.) and the great welcome and support of the Beata and Laszlo, who live unobtrusively on-site and the tips from Richard (the owner) on places to go, take-aways, restaurants etc.

     

    Don't miss out on the canoeing (the nearby river was beautiful) or the quad biking.

     

    We have been lucky enough as a family to visit some great places in this country and abroad, but for the all round package this was "voted" the best, we have been to, by the family.

  • We have had a fantastic week

    Created on 01/09/2016

    Dear Richard,

    Just to let you know that we have had a fantastic week. Everything has been perfect. Beata and Laszlo have been great and the family have enjoyed all the facilities on offer - trying river activities today and think then will have tried everything. TJ

     

  • We had a really super time

    Posted by Sarah on 26/08/2014

    So much for the use of your lovely house for the weekend. We had a really super time. There was so much to do, we wished we could have had a week in order to properly take advantage of everything on offer! Up until today we were lucky with the weather and so were able to play lots of tennis, bounce, badminton etc etc and enjoy our bbq outside which was great, the children also swam endlessly in your wonderfully warm pool. Mihail and Monika were so helpful and kind and cooked our bbq beautifully on Sunday. The house was also immaculately clean and tidy when we arrived and the garden also looking lovely. We adored the chickens and particularly the ducks!

    The chef we found was fine but I'm not sure I'd recommend her - she isn't local as she comes from Thame, and although she travels all over the place I don't think it was ideal. I hope we left everything as we found it and thanks again for a wonderful venue in which to celebrate Dad's birthday.
