We loved our stay at Appletree Cottage and the village of Broadhembury. The cottage is beautiful and the garden is private and well secured. We really appreciated the welcome pack when we arrived and the information provided about the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed walking down the road to the Drewe Arms for Sunday lunch and received a very warm and friendly welcome from all of the staff there. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous property to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday in a lovely part of Devon.

My husband and I (and dog Lily) normally go away in the uk a couple of times a year and we have never stayed at such a clean and well presented property before. I am a bit of a clean freak and I was blown away by the cleanliness of Appletree Cottage. The kitchen was so well equipped and the little touches of a welcome pack - not just for us but for Lily also was really appreciated. There were also fresh flowers in every room. Nothing was forgotten. Beautiful pub a stones throw away with exceptional staff. Would highly recommend this property.

Absolutely Amazing. We were so impressed at how we were made to feel welcome. Sarah (the owner), has thought of everything. We felt completely safe, the cottage was cleaned to an exceptionally high standard. Hand sanitizer was available and antiviral cleaning products. Nice welcome package- cake/biscuits tea, coffee, milk in the fridge. Sarah even care to check we were ok. We would visit again that’s for sure. Highly recommended.

From the moment we walked through the door at Appletree cottage, we felt instantly at home. The cottage is welcoming, warm, cosy and immaculately presented. We were further spoilt by the array of goodies left by Sarah the owner, who came to say hello and check that we had everything we needed, which was a lovely touch. Broadhembury is a beautiful friendly village, with a welcoming pub serving good food and also a handy post office and shop. Many thanks.

Would highly recommend this cottage. Quaint warm and welcoming, set in a picturesque village with a good pub that serves excellent food

Appletree is a beautiful cottage in a delightful setting. It was home from home (and the local pub is great)!

The owner, Sarah Drew was very friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay at Appletree cottage, it has a lovely restful atmosphere, well furnished and spotlessly clean. One of the few cottages we would not hesitate to recommend.

Our second stay was just as good as the first,the quality of everything in the cottage is very good a real comfortable home from home.The owners Sarah and Mike live nearby and made us very welcome .

Appletree Cottage is really special, full of character, spotlessly clean and comfortable, a real 'home from home'. It has a lovely garden too to enjoy on the sunny days.

It is ideally situated in a very pretty village and it is only a short drive to the coast and the many other lovely places to visit in East Devon.

Our stay at the cottage was delightful from the first moment we arrived. Everything was there to make a coffee and feed the kids an enjoyable snack. Furnishings were tasteful and the village location excellent, which we prefer over a completely remote location.

East Devon is an amazing part of the country and a great place for the kids to see and explore.

This is probably the first cottage we have been to where there was enough room for our family of five. so we probably be booking again in the near future.


A really nice cottage in an historic village set in superb Devon countryside. The enclosed garden is good for dog owners.

A delightful cottage in a lovely setting - would highly recommend staying there!

Perfect, just perfect.

Comfortable, functional space/ base for a small family or couple. Well equipped kitchen. Friendly village and homeowners, good food at the pub. Nice area to walk around.

Appletree Cottage is perfect in every way. The personal touches the welcome pack, the greeting from Sarah, the lovely orchard and overall ambiance. We stayed twice in 2018 and already looking to book in 2019. Spacious rooms, spotlessly clean, lovely grounds for dogs/children. Great pub nearby serving delicious food. A haven for wildlife lovers, bird spotters and star gazers.

This was the nicest holiday home we have ever stayed in,a real home from home.the proximity of the motorway enabled us to cover the coast from West bay to Brixham with ease.

Picture perfect both inside and out. Wish i was there right now!

It was a very cosy and comfortable place and we felt very special being there. Thank you.

Beautiful cottage in a traditional chocolate box village. Very comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of days out within a half an hours drive - a very special place!

Beautiful cottage, very well maintained and spotless. Perfect and peaceful location. Loved hearing the church bells.

A wonderful cottage in a wonderful location. Excellent hosts. Highly recommended! Thank you Sarah!

Just read the visitors reports when you get there. Everyone loves the place. Kay and Graham
