    "This property has everything a family could want. We didn’t get to enjoy half of the amenities but, if we had the chance to do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing. Besides the property being in great shape, there were many personal touches, which made the stay quite comfortable. The animals helped make the experience even more special. Thank you Richard, you and your family couldn’t have been more gracious hosts and thank you Betty and Laszlo for your help with starting the fireplace and taking us to feed the animals. This is certainly a destination we intend on returning to in the future!"

    "Everything was perfect and everyone was sad to leave. We really enjoyed the animals and amenities. Betty and Laszlo could not have been more gracious and were excellent help with everything. Thank you again for the opportunity to stay and your kind generosity. We would love to come again in the future and for a longer period of time."

    "Well what can I say about your house and grounds, truly amazing. We had such a wonderful week and made good use of all the facilities. We loved spending time wandering around the grounds and felt totally relaxed when we left. I think we sat in most of the seats round the garden. A favourite hideaway was the summerhouse in the middle of the sheep field and we spent alot of time as a family in the conservatory playing the piano and card games. Our children absolutely loved the animals and they spent alot of time with them even in the rain. The animals have such wonderful characters and will be fondly remembered. It was lovely to see them enjoying the house, grounds and facilities rather than being on their gadgets. And although they did have their phones it was mainly to take pictures of the animals, especially the tiny kitten which they named "Rafa"."

    "Thank you so much for the rental of your house and accommodating my request to have the extra family over on the saturday. We had the most wonderful stay together as a family - the house and grounds are just perfect, couldn't of asked for more. We also wanted to give a shout out for Laslo - he was really such a help and such a pleasure to speak with and great with the children. Overall a perfect celebration for my parents."

    "We are an extended family of six, including three adult children (16, 19, 22), parents (older than 22) and my mother (89) who had a brilliant week at Apple House. With 5 decent size / large bedrooms the house could easily and happily accommodated 10. What made the holiday outstanding were the amenities (great indoor pool, tennis court, trampoline, table tennis, gym etc. etc.) and the great welcome and support of the Beata and Laszlo, who live unobtrusively on-site and the tips from Richard (the owner) on places to go, take-aways, restaurants etc. Don't miss out on the canoeing (the nearby river was beautiful) or the quad biking. We have been lucky enough as a family to visit some great places in this country and abroad, but for the all round package this was "voted" the best, we have been to, by the family."

    "So much for the use of your lovely house for the weekend. We had a really super time. There was so much to do, we wished we could have had a week in order to properly take advantage of everything on offer! Up until today we were lucky with the weather and so were able to play lots of tennis, bounce, badminton etc etc and enjoy our bbq outside which was great, the children also swam endlessly in your wonderfully warm pool. Mihail and Monika were so helpful and kind and cooked our bbq beautifully on Sunday. The house was also immaculately clean and tidy when we arrived and the garden also looking lovely. We adored the chickens and particularly the ducks! The chef we found was fine but I'm not sure I'd recommend her - she isn't local as she comes from Thame, and although she travels all over the place I don't think it was ideal. I hope we left everything as we found it and thanks again for a wonderful venue in which to celebrate Dad's birthday."
