New Year starts Here! We'll have decorations up, mince-pies in the Aga and a complimentary bottle of warming mulled wine waiting for you. Cosy... Quirky... Quaint... An Authentic Forest Cottage... The Apple Store really was the apple store and cider house for the farmhouse, completely refurbished and restored in 2012 as a self-contained garden flat. It is a 200 year old farmhouse, not perfect, not "The Ritz" - if you're looking for a base to explore the Forest, get out and about, enjoy the scenery, nature and history and come back to a cosy, homely base with a warm and cheery welcome this is it. We've kept many original features like the big cast iron roll-top claw foot bath, the Belfast sink and Aga. Furniture like the big antique pine farmhouse table, the chest of drawers and the antique brass bed have been in the family for many years - you are coming to a home, not a utility holiday let. Vintage jam pots sit side by side with artisan Mary Rose Young ceramics, fresh fruit and home-made preserves and jams. Outside, your view is across the tops of the trees in the apple orchard to the waterfall and Gypsy wagon. There's plenty of room for two cars on the drive immediately outside, and a small garden (an ideal dog en suite for late night/early morning runs) with a BBQ, table and chairs. Our friendly hens and ducks peck around the door and the Forest of Dean is "on the doorstep" just a short walk away. 43square miles of The Forest is on the doorstep, with a footpath from the cottage to the woods. Visit the famous Sculpture Trail, test your skills at Go Ape, explore Norman castles, ride the Forest GWR steam train or wonder at the Clearwell caves... the beautiful Wye Valley and Tintern are a short drive away, and for movie-buffs the film locations for Star Wars and Harry Potter and numerous TV dramas are close by (our Gypsy Wagon stars in a recent film!) If you're looking for a quiet hideaway for your special day, look no farther...

Mary served a huge Afternoon Tea down at Gypsy Rose which was delicious. So peaceful here, just what we needed. The dog and ducks always made us smile and greeted us eagerly every morning. What a fantastic surprise to find a basket of rolls and pastries each morning and we couldn't resist having a pot of orange and cranberry marmalade (tasty). Mary was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would love to come here again at a different time of year. Many thanks, E & M" (They booked for September before they left!) ---------------------------------------------------------------- 24th March 2019 Another lovely stay in the Applestore for us. We've now been in Spring, Summer and Winter and the place is as beautiful, with new things to see, each season. As always, it's like coming to visit family with the hosts, Mary and Kes, giving such a genuinely warm welcome - nothing is too much trouble. We look forward to Mary's fabulous baking each morning and opening the door to see Ow'Butt, the dog, patiently waiting to play. ...We spent an afternoon in glorious sunshine down by the Gypsy Rose caravan. What a setting with your own stream and waterfall within feet from the caravan. Absolute bliss sitting peacefully by the stream watching our dog have a paddle, with birdsong all around. We came feeling stressed but are leaving (reluctantly) relaxed and refreshed. Thanks again, Mary. We'll be back soon. M,B-R & Blossom --------------------------------------------------- 13th March 2019 What a lovely slice of "Heaven". We have really enjoyed ourselves, the cottage was perfect, loved the ducks and dog, could not have asked for anything else. Thanks again, Mary. We will see you again. D, H & Bella ------------------------------------------------- 17th Feb 2019 Had an amazing stay here! Lovely food, accommodation and hosts! Will be returning. Many thanks A, J & Rocky ----------------------------------------------------- Primary Activity: Walking, Cycling, Quiet retreat, Food, Nature, Holiday Type: Self-Catering Holidays, Month of Travel: Dec, Destination: UK & Ireland
