  • "The bungalow is lovely, very spacious, warm and clean; good quality furnishings and equipment."

    The owner was very welcoming. Despite there only being three in our party, we felt that it would have been better to have a bit more crockery, especially mugs, the dishwasher was never full when we used it! The layout of the lounge/ diner was slightly awkward for sitting in the evenings to watch TV. We would definitely go back and strongly recommend it.

  • "A lovely holiday cottage situated in the heart of the Countryside."

    The accommodation was clean and the beds very comfortable, leading to several lie-ins. Our boys loved playing hide and seek in the Orchard, when they were not playing football in the large garden. The Potting Shed Pub is only a short stroll down the lane, where we enjoyed an evening drink in-front of a roaring log fire.

The property

Approached by quiet, rural country roads in a peaceful and tranquil setting, and then accessed via a long driveway, sits this contemporary bungalow within several acres of the owner’s land.

The Apple Shed can be found nestled on the outskirts of Wisbech, and provides a lovely base for families and friends to come together and enjoy this serene location.

Step into the entrance hall where you can leave your boots and jackets before continuing into the open-plan living area.

This room will become the social hub of the property, beautifully presented with neutral tones and plenty of natural lighting, it is a modern space for cooking and socialising in the evening.

Gather at the dining table to enjoy a lovingly-prepared home-cooked meal, or take the evening outside and enjoy the scenic countryside, sipping on a glass of wine and toasting to a long-awaited getaway.

As you look to rest, there are three neatly presented bedrooms to choose from, including two king-size rooms with en-suite wetrooms, and a twin with zip/link beds (can be a super-king-size on request) with an en-suite shower.

Each of the bedrooms feature a neutral colour scheme and wardrobe space for your personal belongings.

A couple of minutes walk cross the fields lies Mile Tree Brewery, which welcomes guests for drinks and meals.

The property enjoys a great location – just a mile away lies the town centre of Wisbech, so you can wander in for a day exploring the town, before walking along the River Nene and stopping off at a local café for a sweet treat, or continue to explore the trails around Wisbech Park, which extends over 12 acres and boasts an adventure playground.

Elsewhere in the town you will find the independent Luxe Cinema where you can catch a film, as well as the Wisbech & Fenland Museum, ideal for those history buffs.

Venture into the market town of Banbury, home to an array of amenities and attractions, from shopping opportunities at Castle Quay Shopping Centre to the local history on display at Banbury Museum & Gallery and the landmark of Banbury Cross.

About the location

WISBECH

King's Lynn 13.6 miles; Peterborough 22 miles.

A market town in the far north-east of Cambridgeshire, Wisbech borders Norfolk and is just under 20-miles from the coast. Receiving the Gold Award in the large town category in the RHS Anglia in Bloom competition in 2019, this town is full of delights and is home to a bustling high street with shops, restaurants and pubs as well as a scattering of independent local businesses. Head over to Luxe Cinema on a rainy afternoon, an independent cinema with classic plush seating, or explore Peckover House and Garden overlooking the River Nene, a stately Georgian townhouse turned museum set within a luscious 2-acre garden. On a warm day stroll around Wisbech Park and sit down for a picnic at lunch, or head out further to nearby King's Lynn, the historic seaport town for a great day out. Wisbech is a delightful place to enjoy your holiday.
