“Apple Tree Cottage is an attractive Grade 2 listed farmhouse in a peaceful location just outside the lovely village of Tarrant Monkton.”
It is well equipped with everything we needed to cater for our family gathering of up to 11 on one night.
Despite some reviews to the contrary, we found the house clean and tidy when we arrived.
The garden is mainly a large lawn, good for the children, with benches and tables for eating outside and our competitive card games.
The kitchen is central to a family gathering and this one was ideal for family meals and we soon got used to using the Aga oven. (At least two of us did!!)
We were lucky with the weather, enabling us to stroll through the village to the Langton Arms and spend time in their large garden. They have a good selection of beers etc. Be aware though that it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. The restaurant is excellent though a little pricey, but worth it for good food and friendly service.
The friendly owners Martin & Sam made themselves know to us and being nearby were available should there have been any problems.
Overall, this was a great place to stay, if you enjoy peace and quiet, with a friendly pub nearby and plenty of walks to explore the countryside.
