Our stay at The Apple Store was extremely enjoyable.. Lynda and David are the perfect hosts and seem to cater for your every need. On arrival there was a fresh loaf, butter and marmalade, milk, tea bags, coffee etc. and it would be rude not to mention the home baked delicious lemon drizzle cake! We had packed loads of things we just didn't need because Lynda and David supply all the basics and much more. The Apple Store is homely and comfortable and the garden (front and back) was totally secure for our dog. We walked the dog for miles and also visited Monmouth which is a lovely little town, virtually four or five miles away. The Butterfly Zoo is in easy walking distance and is a wonderful experience, so many different species of butterflies, you can stay as long as you like and even return later in the day if you wish. The price is reasonable and the staff are helpful and courteous.The Potting Shed restaurant is literally "over the road" from The Apple Store, it is dog friendly and offers a wide and varied choice of dishes. We enjoyed a lovely lunch there, the weather was so hot (this is the middle of October) we sat in the garden, however if you want to, they will accommodate you inside, with your dog. We have no hesitation in recommending The Apple Store and the surrounding area is a delight, we will certainly be returning.
