Apple Bough and Chess Cottages

Apple Bough and Chess Cottages

These cottages have been artistically furnished throughout with plenty of character and contemporary appeal. Original artworks, upholstery, thoughtful touches, fresh flowers and local treats make this cottage memorable. Superking beds make this a perfect escape for recharging in the countryside. Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy towels.

Apple Bough has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. While Chess has a superking and double. Both properties boast an open plan dining sitting area, a well equipped kitchen, a garden each, a bbq, a firepit and the biomass wood pellet stove is an extra cosy addition to the biomass heating.

We have always used local producers and delight in tracking down new suppliers.


All Year, minimum stay three nights.

Apple Bough and Chess Cottages Recommends

The farm is a great base in itself, woodland walks, apple orchards, stream with otters and dragonflies, beautiful views and footpaths.

Further afield we head to Hay for cake, swimming, books and walks. Fabulous gardens nearby and artists workshops aplenty.
