  • "We had a lovely stay."

    It was large, spacious and comfortable. Thanks to the previous reviews we read we took a long lead so our dog could roam the large garden. We will definitely return someday.

  • "A very nice cottage."

    Very comfortable and clean. Not that easy to find and some small issues ( one of the TV controls didn’t work and the water dispenser in the fridge leaked) but a quiet location which suited us. The nearby Potting Shed is excellent for breakfast.

  • "The Apple Shed is a clean and well-maintained property in a private and quiet area."

    The owner was friendly and although living next door, did not intrude. The property was light and airy, spacious, and perfect for family or a group of friends. Very relaxing and would definitely go again. Areas for improvement: 1) The property is listed as dog friendly but the garden is not fully enclosed and there was also a chicken roaming around. We suggest putting chicken wire/deer wire around the garden so dogs can be free in the garden. In specifically choosing a dog friendly place, we had hoped the dog could play freely outside. One saving grace was finding a private dog walking field (called Go Mutts) 12 mins drive away which we paid to use and let our dog be free (£10 per hour for exclusive use). The chicken was also a bit of torture for our dog as she watched it through the window. 2) There is no signage from the lane for the property. We suggest putting up a small sign so it can be found more easily. The booking form said to call the owner once we were near; however, we couldn’t get through. We ended up finding the property by mistake.

  • "Felt like home from home."

    Plenty of room for 6 people and two big dogs, but still feeling cozy. Beds were perfect, had a very comfortable and peaceful night's sleep. Very clean and had everything we needed. Dogs and children loved the garden plenty of room for them to run around and have fun safely. Hot tub was amazing and a very nice touch, loved spending our evenings in there. We saw Jim the owner onces, other then that the owners leave you to it and aren't obstructive in anyway.

  • "Delightfully tranquil holiday home with lovely soft towels and comfortable beds."

    We stayed during August 2023 and, although only a short walk to the Secret Garden camp / caravan site, the area was wonderfully quiet at night leading to a great night's sleep. The owners are on hand to sort out any questions without being obtrusive

  • "The Apple Shed was ideal for us because one of our group is disabled and the property is accessible to anyone with limited mobility."

    The bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. Inside is dog friendly but we were unable to let our dogs out in the garden in case they roamed because it isn’t completely enclosed.

  • "The Apple Shed was a lovely place to stay."

    The bedrooms were comfortable and clean as was the lounge/kitchen area. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of pots and pans etc. We loved the hot tub and fire pit. Also we enjoyed playing the games which were available in the hall cupboard. It was a very convenient location for visiting places like Ely and Cambridge.

  • "From the moment we arrived the owners have been friendly and helpful."

    The rooms large airy and clean. Showers were clean and lovely. There is a cafe next door at Secret Garden in the Pub. The Apple Shed was central to visiting Peterborough and the beach. As well as Wisbech itself. Cannot wait to return here. Weather was stunning and a 7.30am Jacuzzi dip was awesome.

  • "A very good week staying at the Apple Shed."

    It was very comfortable. The towels were excellent, large and very soft which was so lovely. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and helped to get the main television onto Freeview. The bedroom tv’s needed an aerial to watch Freeview which was fine as we didn’t use them. The photo of the Apple Shed on Sykes didn’t show the close proximity of the owners house as we assumed it was an isolated cottage. Overall I would certainly recommend a holiday there.

    We had a disabled person in our party, and the accessibility and facilities were perfect for them. Only problem we encountered was the television, we couldn't get it to work. Would definitely use again.

  • "The property was lovely , the only thing that really disappointed us was the hot tub , it was not ready and not heated before we came and it did not work properly, so we were not able to use it ."

    Dear Greta, Thanks for your feedback, following your stay at Apple Shed. We are very sorry to hear that the water in jacuzzy was not warm enough during your stay. It is great pitty that you have not contacted us during your stay and asked us to check the water temperature and adjust it . It would be the easier issue to resolve with a simple phone call. After we have learned of the issue, following your review, we have checked the jacuzzy and noted that the jacuzzy is working fine , but somehow the temperature control was reprogramed. Best wishes Jim and Inna Property Owner

  • "A comfortable and spacious property with plenty of room for six people."

    The owners are welcoming and helpful. Each of the three rooms has a comfortable en suite with easily accessible showers. The area is pleasant and peaceful with a pub and small shop within easy walk and other options within 5-minute drive. The property has been updated since listing photos were taken, now with a larger sofa and dining table that comfortably seats six. Plenty of parking once you find the place, a sign on the road would definitely aid in locating a real gem of a property. We'll be back!

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.

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.
