Some of the wonderful things our guests have said about The Old Apple Store

"We had the loveliest stay at Kate's place. The Old Apple Store is beautiful and it's clear so much attention to detail has gone in to making it perfect. The outside space is amazing and it's so peaceful in Lee. We loved strolling down to the bay and the local pub is fantastic too. Would highly recommend staying here."

"We had a lovely stay at Kate' place! Not only is the property beautiful, well located with an amazing Jacuzzi, it's also amazingly well decorated, with great amenities! Everything is well thought through and the whole experience was incredible :) We will come again!"

"A lovely charming cottage stay, immaculately presented, beautifully finished with nice finishing touches and a little selection of locally made treats left for us when we checked in. We loved the short walk to Lee Bay, having bbqs on the south facing terrace and watching the sunset from the hot tub. The beds were comfortable and had lovely soft sheets. Lots of big fluffy white towels and dressing gowns. The cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Short walk to Lee bay, short drive to woolacombe and a big Tesco for extra supplies. Would love to come back!"

"Perfect little getaway for two! Location was wonderful and we really appreciated the small touches like the hamper on arrival, coffee machine and stylish decor. It felt like a luxurious stay! Wish we were there longer!"

"Where to start! Myself and 3 girlfriends have just returned from a stay in the gorgeous Old Apple Store in Lee. The hosts, especially Helen for us, were fantastic from the outset - always quick to respond to all emails and queries. They provided all the information we could possibly need for the stay including even recommendations for a yoga teacher in the area and private dining caterers for a special meal one of the nights we stayed.

The place itself is so beautifully decorated, with every little detail really thought through and accounted for. Despite our visit during storm Alex (!), we made the most of the delightful hot tub and having the smart tv meant that we could have cosy nights in watching films and shows! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Devon in a great location near Ilfracombe!"

"Amazing couple of nights stay with everything you need. Short walk to the local pub and only a short cab ride into ilfracombe and Woolacombe. Would definately recommend booking if you are looking for a place in North Devon. Quick response times from the host also!"

"We have had an amazing weekend at the Old Apple Store! We received a lovely welcome hamper upon arrival after a super easy check in :) Thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub & log fire. Smart tv’s & very fast internet was 10/10! We stayed during the festive period but would love to return in the summer months."

- Kiera, December 2019



"The Old Apple Store is absolutely wonderful! A really gorgeous old property with beautiful touches to make it feel like a hotel. Kieran was very helpful for anything we needed (which wasn’t much as the house has it all!). The local beach is pretty and the hot tub is a great extra! Thanks for having us!"

- Rebecca, December 2019

"We had a great 3 night stay, the place was really clean and beautifull. I would definitely recommend to friends who are after a nice chilled getaway :)"

"Amazing place, very relaxing and welcoming. Great hosts and available if we had any questions. We had everything on hand. The outdoor eating area was great for the whole family to relax in the beautiful surroundings. The bedrooms nice and cosy. Again lots of nice little homely touches. Felt very welcome and comfortable. A real touch of luxury. The kitchen is perfect. Having such a nice kitchen really adds to the experience. And I’ve not even mentioned Lee and surrounding areas! Lovely little bay, nice boozer. It’s a great village only a short distance from Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. Hope we will be back if we can get in!"

- Steve, August 2019

"Beautiful cottage that is both luxurious & comfortable. The hosts were great and a lovely welcome basket was awaiting us when we arrived. The hot tub was fabulous and was used every night. The accommodation is close to many local attractions and the village itself has a quaint pub. Overall would highly recommend."

- Jasna, August 2019

"Beautiful place in fantastic surroundings! Lots of lovely little touches to make the stay nice. We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the BBQ, deck and hot tub as the weather was glorious but plan to visit again in the winter to make the most of the log burner and cosy inside spaces! Easy to get to Ilfracombe and walk down to Lee bay was only a few minutes with a small gallery selling drinks and ice creams on route. Coastal path nearby too and lots of books with walk suggestions and maps."

- Louise - August 2019

"The Old Apple Store is located in a quiet coastal spot, great for a true hideaway. The owners have pulled out all the stops to give visitors a truly luxurious experience ranging from the hot tub and al fresco dining area through to the Nespresso machine and personalised soap. Had the best night sleep in ages in one of the single beds! Great walking and beaches nearby."

- Samantha, July 2019
