About Apple Tree Cottage

Apple Tree Cottage sits peacefully on the edge of woodland just a short drive from Salisbury. With two bedrooms, this pretty thatched cottage is perfect for a couple but also spacious enough to appeal to a family of up to four. From the original handmade bricks that have stood in place for 500 years, to the sloping thatched roof and rambling roses growing around the gate, the property is a country cottage fantasy brought to life.

Walk out of the front door and within minutes you are in Bentley Wood, a 1400 acres bluebell woods that has been designated an SSSI due to the species of butterfly that flourish there. There is no nicer way to start the day than with a tranquil wander through the woods in the company of hares and roe deer.

Apple Tree Cottage is in the small Wiltshire village of East Grimstead, around six miles (eight kilometres) from medieval Salisbury with its stunning cathedral and great choice of shops to browse and places for a meal out. You are also close to the ancient sites of Stonehenge, Woodhenge, Avebury, Old Sarum and mpressive National Trust properties like Mompesson House and Mottisfont.

There is no shortage of ideas for fun days out because within twenty minutes drive of Apple Tree Cottage you can be in the New Forest with miles of tracks and trails to explore. Also close by are attractions including Beaulieu Motor Museum; Winchester; Portsmouth with its historic dockyard; Longleat for a safari adventure and Paultons Park/Peppa Pig World (sure to be a hit with the younger ones). Bournemouth and other beautiful Dorset beaches are about an hour away.

  • Digital television with Freeview channels and DVD player.
  • Family-friendly board games.
  • A choice of novels, guidebooks and maps of the area.

  • Family bathroom with shower-over-bath, WC, and wash basin.

Upstairs are two cosy bedrooms under the eaves:

  • A lovely double bedroom decorated in restful colours with television.
  • A twin bedroom with two single beds and a snug atmosphere - the beds have Laura Ashley bed linen and guests are supplied with White Company towels. Both rooms have radiators as part of the property's central heating.

Outside: There is an enclosed garden with patio and garden furniture, and private parking for two cars.

Additional Information: There are low beams throughout the property. WiFi is available throughout the property, and there is a full-oil central heating system.

From Rosie, the owner: Apple Tree Cottage is in an idyllic spot next to the vast and magical Bentley Wood.  If you are looking for a peaceful sanctuary for a few days, you will not be disappointed. Yet Salisbury with its cathedral, shops and restaurants is only 6 miles away.
