    Judy and her husband are very good hosts, Judy showed us around when we got there, the downstairs had been updated, brand new kitchen, brand new carpets and furniture. The only thing that not been updated was the bathroom, they hadn’t got round to that before we got there. Very comfortable upstairs, a 4 poster bed, the downside was the beams, I hit my head on two occasions and suffered a bad headache on the first time. I would certainly go back, again, the downside is it is a few miles outside the main town and about 5 miles from West Bay, this will not stop us going again.

    We had a wonderful holiday at The Apple House. Hope to return in the future. It was a good base to explore the local area. West bay is beautiful and worth a visit. The shared pool was an added bonus and the children loved it!

    The parking was on the drive leading to the property as the owner parked 2 cars outside the property for the whole of our stay. We generally felt unwelcome - the welcome pack consisted of a few teabags, literally 2 spoons of coffee, a few spoonfuls of sugar and a pint of milk. The cutlery had been put in the dishwasher (not in the property) because it was marked - we understand this but the owners then left the farm before returning the cutlery and we didn't actually know "which" dishwasher it had been left in - we phoned the number provided but got no answer, we eventually located the cutlery in the holiday cottage next door. There is no storage in the kitchen for food other than the fridge freezer. In this cottage you will be charged the full £3 a day for the heating of the pool as it is measured on the meter of the cottage next door - this is regardless of the cost of the heating. We didn't get a meter reading for the electric at the start of the holiday and weren't informed how much we would be charged for each unit - apart from the pool it was reasonable but it would have helped to have this info up front. Part way through the week some old and very dirty outdoor furniture was left on the patio assigned for us to use - it wasn't clear if this was for our use but it was filthy. The house was clean to eye height but dusty (and the cobwebs had not appeared during the day) at the tops of windows and ceilings. On arrival we were advised to mind the bolts that stand proud of the beams in the bedrooms - to be honest we really couldn't understand given the width of the beams why they couldn't have been made flushed in the beam. The condition of the area around the pool was poor and needs attention.
