Tucked-away down a private loke, Apple Tree Cottage is away from any roads and so is ideal for families with children. There is a large, newly created garden to the front, side and rear of the house, with space to play and a south-facing patio equipped with garden chairs and table. As well as attractive flower borders, the garden contains a herb garden and raised soft fruit bed. We grow raspberries, blackcurrants, red and white currants and rhubarb. There are also 3 varieties of apple tree in the front garden. Guests are always welcome to help themselves to fruit when it is in season. There is off-road parking for 2 cars.
