Apple Court House, has over the years been converted from a Victorian apple barn to what is now a substantial 5 bedroom period family home offering versatile accommodation for holiday makers visiting the New Forest.

The property showcases two beautiful open fires for those winter months and a stunning garden to enjoy during the summer. Crisp white bedding and luxury Laura Ashley finishing touches make this property feel like a real home from home in the countryside.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this property. Thank you.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Apple Court House. Ideal for families with children. On arrival there was no travel cot or single beds made up as a king size which had been requested and was printed on our invoice. We phoned the owner who told us where the cot was and we moved the beds ourselves. The owner said she had not received these instructions. Otherwise no problems.
We had a lovely time with great weather. The space in the house and garden were perfect for our stay and we liked the location as we could easily reach the coast and New Forest. Our children and grandchildren very much enjoyed the holiday. Also, thank you to Emma for letting us look around the beautiful Apple Court Gardens on a none opening day - a lovely experience.
We had a great time at Apple Court House, it was ideally situated, has great space which suites our kids and the adults with plenty of room to accommodate everyone's needs. The gardens were wonderful and owners were very helpful when we needed assistance! Fantastic property which we would highly recommend to larger families traveling in the area.
This was a lovely cottage in brilliant location and tastefully decorated with a beautiful garden. The supplies were adequate - the only thing we would have liked was a hairdryer! But I would highly recommend this property.
