The town of Whitchurch lies in Northern Hampshire in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the head of the River Test, the chalk stream river beloved by fly fishermen, and bounded to the North and East by the picturesque North Downs. Whitchurch is home to a fine selection of local shops, pubs and restaurants as well as having a local food market each week. There is great walking on offer to suit all abilities, with the climb up Beacon Hill a must which rewards you with a panoramic view of Highclere Castle which was used as the location for TV’s Downton Abbey series. Treat yourself to some luxurious silk from Whitchurch Silk Mill, or discover the byways featured in ‘Watership Down’ by Richard Adams, who lives in the town. Take a trip to the ancient cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, or to the racecourse at nearby Newbury. A glorious rural area which offers visitors an interesting and tranquil holiday location at any time of the year.

Previous visitors' comments about The Apple Store:
It was a quiet place. Very good to relax. The owners were lovely people and very helpful.
Mr Phillips, London, February 2013
Very secluded away from main roads. Grounds well kept and great for dog.
Mr Trayner, Dundee, July 2012
The welcome received from the host was marvellous - felt like hugging them as we left after only three nights! The decor and finish was second to none with Denby crockery and magnificent furniture and finishes to the building. The grounds were magnificent with the original 45m deep well used by the host's French ancestor when he bought the land in 1902! Would highly recommended to any couple wishing to stay and wanting some peace and quiet in the gorgeous Hampshire countryside.

The Apple Store was in a peaceful and tranquil location, fantastic views from all windows. Very well presented in every room. Plenty of parking and relaxation areas outside and on the porch. Ideal for those who want to walk, ramble and visit local areas and also to relax.
