“A place of relaxation”
Reviewed 8 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

This is our second stay at the Applestore. The owners are very welcoming. The view from the kitchen windo of the waterfall and Geece is lovely.
Enjoyed the freshly cooked bread rolls and pastries.
Mary cooked us a homemade quiche that was warming in the aga on arrival.
Lovely walks in the Forest of Dean. Very dog friendly and shop and pub in walking distance.
A very homely place to stay.

We loved staying in the Apple Store and definitely will be returning and recommending to everyone! Mary thank you for making us feel so welcome and at home, your baking is amazing and all your personal touches went the extra mile, the Apple Store is beautiful and cosy and the garden with ducks and the gypsy caravan is stunning too. The views are amazing and we will definitely be back to do more walks and local activities at some point, with the dog and kids in tow maybe!
We've been recommending to everyone and wish you all best of luck at Maytree, you've got a gem there! you deserve it!

“Relaxing break”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a lovely relaxing break at The Apple Store. Area tranquil with lovely garden and view. We were well looked after with fresh hens and duck eggs on request and freshly baked rolls each day. Mary also cooked a range of other delicacies such as croissants,pain au chocolat welsh cakes and scones!!. Good job there are some lovely walks around to burn off the calories. The kitchen was well equipped for self catering and the bed was comfortable.
Because The Apple Store is under the main house it is worth mentioning that it is necessary to have the lights on at all times when in the cottage even on a sunny day, but this did not dampen our enjoyment of the week we spent there.
