    About this property

    The Apple Tree House is a large elegant Edwardian house totally refurbished in 2014 to a very high specification. The house, nestled in the heart of this quintessentially English country village, provides spacious luxury rental accommodation over three floors with 6 large bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 5 reception rooms and a garage.

    The house has been sympathetically renovated keeping several original fireplaces and interior features.

    Outside, the house offers private gardens of approx. three quarters of an acre, overlooking The Thames Valley towards Cliveden House at Taplow.

    The House has the services of a local manager to check guests in and out, and to advise the visitors of the day to day running of the house (alarms, heating, satellite TV, Wi Fi, Cookers etc).

    Going back towards The Apple House, from Country Store you will find a fine independent Butchers called Keith Macey’s.  The meat here is very good.  Just along from the butchers is a nice deli selling French meats, pates and cheeses and some bread and wine perfect for evenings in.

    Accommodation

    On the top floor is one of the principal suites offering a large bedroom with vaulted ceiling and beautiful views over farmland towards Cliveden House.  The room is tastefully furnished.

    Leading off from the bedroom is the spacious white and grey marble bathroom complete with large circular bath, television built into mirrored effect walls, large walk in rain shower with side jets plus other usual facilities.
    The second bedroom on this floor has twin beds plus a day bed with trundle bed under and can sleep up to four comfortably.  This is a great kids room! The adjacent bathroom has a full size bath with hand shower, basin and toilet.

    On the first floor the principal suite comprises of very large bedroom, sumptuously decorated in gilt and blue with huge super king size bed and French Versailles style furniture.  The bathroom is mainly slab marble with a twin walk in shower, twin basins and television concealed in the above sink mirror plus lovely views over the local countryside.
    To the rear on this floor is the smallest bedroom which comfortably houses twin single beds plus furniture and has an en suite shower room.
    To the front we have two king sized rooms.  The 'pink' room is decorated in deep pink and bronze with a king size bed, limed furniture, television, beautiful en suite bathroom with full sized bath, walk in shower and double width basin and views over the old cricket common.
    The 'blue room' is again of large proportion with king sized metal frame bed and cream painted furniture. The adjacent bathroom has full sized bath with shower over, basin and w.c. and views over the old cricket common.

    The luxury bespoke kitchen and spacious breakfast room are situated at the rear of the house taking advantage of views over lovely rolling fields and the beautiful morning sun.  Cooking facilities include two full sized ovens, steam oven and microwave/grill set in the popular cube formation.  There is an induction hob, dishwasher,  American fridge/freezer, wine fridge and a large array of cupboards, granite work tops and preparation areas.

    The utility room includes laundry items and easy access to the rubbish disposal area through the back door plus side entrance to the detached double garage.
    The breakfast area houses a large oak table and seating for 12 people and has easy access to the rear garden through 2 sets of French doors.  There are also 2 televisions, one in the cooking area and one overlooking the breakfast table and the music system can also be operated from here.

    The formal dining room is situated at the front of the house.  This is a large airy room with a fine oblong dining table and twelve comfortable dining chairs - ideal for a formal dinner party or large family lunch.
    The Orchard has four reception rooms in addition to the kitchen/breakfast room.
    The Family room is situated next to the kitchen and connected by double doors making it easy to keep an eye on the younger family members whilst preparing food etc.  The room has a comfortable corner sofa which can easily seat several small people if some time out TV is required, but is equally suited to playing games or with toys etc.

    The modern Lounge with large cinema style TV and Hi Fi System is large and suitable for any function and is situated opposite the family room across the inner hallway.  This room leads off from the breakfast room via double doors and has side french windows leading to the patio and garden. The large room is sunny during the day and early evening making it ideal to swing open the doors and take in the garden during the summer months.  Furnished in a tasteful modern way with twin cream chenille sofas, turquoise scatters and rug and glass accessories and housing the huge curved entertainment screen the room is minimalist yet cosy - a versatile area lending itself to many uses.
    At the front of the house is the study.

    Next to the study is the morning room.  This room is traditionally furnished and with a fine limestone fireplace, for ornamental purposes only, a quiet room ideal for reading and without the interference of a television!

    "Immaculate house and gardens. Susanne, the housekeeper was superb and could not have been more friendly and helpful."
    Debbie Perry
    "We had a really lovely weekend, the house is amazing Thank you"
    John Bostock
    "It was a perfect spot for family to congregate and use as a base for operations. The rooms were much larger than I expected, so we really enjoyed lots of space and it was very relaxing. You have set the bar very high."
    Sam S
    "My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at The Apple Tree House!!"
    Mike Jenkins
    "We absolutely loved our stay at The Apple Tree House. Everyone thought it was a fantastic house and location to spend Christmas. Do you know the make of the mattress on the bed on the first floor master bedroom? It was so comfortable and I forgot to look before we left!! Who is the artist that painted the cow in the kitchen (loved it)?"
    Natalie K
    "I booked the house to celebrate my 50th with 12 friends-6 couples. We were greeted on arrival by the charming house keeper who was so sweet and informative. I was speechless the house has the wow factor it is absolutely stunning, decorated to perfection and spotless. Everything is top quality from furnishings to bash towels. We had the best time ever. Although it was cold it didn't stop us using the fab hot tub. The village is idilic and lunch at the chequers was fabulous. I had the best birthday ever in a house that dreams are made of. We will be back."
    Richard Chapman
    "We have now returned home after a wonderful week and our daughter's wedding last Friday. We just wanted to let you know that the house was perfect and everyone who stayed thoroughly enjoyed themselves."
    Larry & Ruth Butt
    "We all think you have a beautiful house. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was so nice to come back after a day of WALKING and relax together."

    "Just wanted to say WOW, what an amazing property. We had a wonderful stay at The Apple Tree House"
    Sean N
    "We rented Apple Tree house for a week away with friends. What a great house it is. From the well appointed kitchen, which turned into the 'hub' of the house during the holiday, to the modern and contemporary drawing room, and lovely morning room and snug, the ground floor accomodation was faultless. The kitchen itself is to die for, with everything available for a high end self caterer to a casual breakfast. The bedrooms are all finished to a very high standard, most of which were ensuite, if not bathroom adjacent.  Top quality fittings and luxrious finishings made each bathroom special and unique. There's plenty of outside space, with a rear patio and furniture to while away lazy warm evenings, or a hot sunn afternoon. A house well worth considering."
    David T
    "Our stay at The Apple Tree House was exceptional, myself and my family spent a week over Christmas here – what a perfect place for a wonderful family Christmas, loved by all, especially the dogs! From first contact to departure, the standard and service was above and beyond our expections. We were spoilt for choice with the bedrooms, out of the six exceptionally decorated bedrooms, we chose to stay on the top floor in one of the luxurious suites offering breath-taking views of Cliveden House. The beautiful décor throughout the entire house did not go unnoticed, it was the perfect location, the views overlooking the Berkshire countryside were splendid, watching the horses having their daily exercise was a perfect start to the day. I even managed a New Year’s Day dip in the hot tub, will definitely return again! Congratulations for creating something quite special. A fabulous time was had by all, what fond memories we have"

    "Wow, what an amazing house. We had such a fun break as a family. The house is fantastic, so comfortable and wonderfully spacious. Look forward to our next visit!"
    Alun A
    "We were obviously looking forward to our stay at The Apple Tree, the web site photo's looked amazing, but do not do it justice. The property is simply amazing. The finish is outstanding, the facilities are state of the art and the views are stunning. The local area is absolutely lovely, with great walks and a superb collection of pubs and restaurants. London was only 45mins away for an evening out, and we even ventured into Bray 15 minutes away for a spot of lunch at the HindHead. From the amazing bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen, to the hot tub outside, we couldn't recommend this property more, you will simply love it!"
    Harry S
    "Don't hesitate to book. A lovely house in a great location. The owners reply quickly to emails and were there to meet us when we arrived. We visited so many places, Legoland, Runneymede, Henley & Ascot – all so easy to get to! The local train station is a small walk away and you are about ½ hour from London. The children loved the garden and trying to spot the neighbouring horses in the field next door was fun! They also enjoyed getting up early to spy on the local wildlife, especially see the jack deer was a bonus! The Hot Tub was most pleasurable particularly on lovely summer day. Should we ever visit the area again, I would definitely stay at The Apple Tree House again, the house is truly beautiful and designed to an extremely high standard."
    Tracey H
    "Just had a wonderful stay at The Apple Tree, we enjoyed ourselves so much that we are booking again next year! The location of the property is idyllic, set in rural countryside with incredible views, which makes you feel completely relaxed, yet it’s great for visiting London and the surrounding tourist attractions (there are so many!) all within easy reach from the property. I would highly recommend the neighbouring pub with its great gourmet food and very friendly atmosphere."
