We have just come back from a very wet week away. Emma was a fantastic host and The Apple Store was amazing being so close to family. It was a fantastic base to explore all that Devon and Cornwall has to offer (even during these unprecedented times). This will definitely be somewhere we will book again and have already recommended it!

Great food you can buy from the owner. We had eggs and steaks which were so much better than shop bought produce.

Idyllic surroundings in a very quiet part of Devon.

Great hosts.

Couldn’t fault it

lovely place to stay. Emma was so friendly and engaging despite the social distancing. Her stay was immaculate and so relaxing and away from the huddle and bustle. We felt very safe there bearing in mind the current covid situation. Would definitely recommend and hopefully return.

Liked: Everything!

Not so happy about: Nothing! except we didn't want to leave!

Lovely cottage in a very quiet spot. Emma has taken care to make the most of the building using her decorating skills to make it a comfortable, well equipped place to stay. Would highly recommend as a good place to stay for touring the area too.

Lovely family in a lovely setting. So relaxing and the fun of ponies, dogs and a hen on Freddie's shoulder stole the show!! What more would you want.

The Apple Store is a beautiful and comfortable cottage set in a lovely location. The only sounds are those of the cows occasionally mooing gently in the fields. Emma is the perfect hostess and it is always interesting to talk to her and Freddie. The Victoria sponge was appreciated and enjoyed. It was a wonderful break to recharge the batteries ahead of the winter.

We were welcomed by Emma the owner with a freshly made Victoria sponge, fresh milk and eggs and during our stay she was around if we needed anything but never intrusive. We loved hearing all about the farm from Emma and her son Freddie. We found the Apple Store very peaceful and it was exactly what we needed.

We will be back next year.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments about The Apple Store. We are delighted that it was exactly what you needed and you had a beautifully peaceful break. We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Emma, Customer Support

The Apple Store is the perfect choice for a relaxing and recharging break away. The location is ideal - it feels as though you are in the middle of nowhere but local towns and villages are easily accessible within ten minutes. It is beautifully decorated to a high standard and quality and demonstrates exquisite country taste. It is equipped with almost everything you could need, and more, for your stay. The owners are friendly, warm and inviting - always on hand should you need them but also respectful of your privacy. We could not be happier with our choice of accommodation and highly recommend a visit to The Apple Store.

We had a perfect stay in the cottage and enjoyed your little talks with Emma. Also the cake we got as a welcome was perfect and delicious!

This is an excellent cottage, very comfortable and welcoming. Lovely views and good to see Fable the Dartmoor pony each morning. A big thank you to Emma, Nick and Freddie for their hospitality and welcome. The cottage is in a great location, deep in the middle of the countryside but only 10 mins away from the A30 which gives you a great range of places to travel to.

We understand that over time furniture wears out and services break down at the wrong time. Unless an owner tests the accommodation every few months things can go unnoticed. We're sure Emma will rectify the cottage's heating, general cosiness, mattress and general comfort. A bit of fine tuning and a little money and its standards will improve quickly. Maybe the laneway could be used for trusted paying dogs to stretch their legs off lead too? We wish Emma all the best!

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts - we're so sorry that you were a bit chilly at night with the programmed heating timer. The owner has now fitted a separate thermostat in the cottage so guests can boost it if they wish to ensure they're warm and toasty at all times. She's also upgraded the bed to a new 'zip and link' mattress that can be made up as a 5' double or split into twin beds to give even more choice. All dogs are very welcome to be walked in the lane, and there is a great list of lovely local walks in the cottage itself. The owner is very happy to give further recommendations personally - you can ask her at any point in your stay. Tanya, Customer Support

It was a very Nice cottage in the country side,with a very beautiful nature . With greats Marjo Claessen

My boyfriend and I just returned from a lovely stay at the Apple Store, the property is beautifully furnished and has the most amazing views of the beautiful Devon countryside, not to mention the sweet pony that is neighboured next door to the Apple Store. During our stay we visited the Dartmoor National Park, and had cream tea at the Two Bridges Pub which I recommend. In addition, we also went to the Dartmoor Inn and Lewtrenchard Manor for drinks in the evening, both which we would return to. There are lots of lovely walks nearby and welcoming pubs which Emma, the owner, kindly recommended to us. Overall a great stay and we would happily return to this beautiful part of the U.K. & The Apple Store.

Had a lovely week at this extremely well equipped and spacious holiday home. Cheerful and sunny sitting area with comfy chairs, romantic views over cattle fields from the bedroom and even the bathroom. Peaceful and quiet with an occasional moo from the farm animals, which was absolutely adorable. Be prepared though to drive a bit for walks as there are not a lot of public footpaths in the direct vicinity. But Dartmoor and a lot of other splendid walking areas are easily reached, so that isn't really an issue. The owner ist very welcoming and the overall atmosphere of the Apple Store made us feel right at home!

First class. Lovely family. Very friendly.

Lovely property, everthing you could wish for. Nice personal touches. Friendly owners who made us very welcome.

Loved the Apple Store. Cottage was everything you could wish for, a really good size for a one bedroom cottage and exceptionally well equipped. Emma was really welcoming and helpful. Location was great on the edge of Dartmoor, lots of walks nearby, also some good cycle paths and close to Tavistock and Okehampton. Had a great stay and would thoroughly recommend , we're planning on a return.
