  • "Apple Barn is a very well looked after property."

    Clean, well appointed, comfy, cosy and warm (during our winter stay) The host Elaine welcomed us and kindly left milk and cake for our arrival. It is in a good location for a number of interesting towns and ideal for hiking. We would definitely recommended it.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Apple Barn."

    So much thought had gone into making a lovely little holiday home. It was so clean and had everything we needed. There is so much to do in the area and we were so lucky to get such gorgeous weather. The owner Elaine was kind to let us use their beautiful garden. She gave us a lovely cake and some fresh plums from a tree close by. Everything was just perfect and we hope to come again.

  • "We had a lovely week in The Apple Barn."

    The cottage was so clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The farm is in a peaceful rural location and we did several walks from the door. We also visited two National Trust properties (Canons Ashby and Stowe Gardens).

  • "Wow just Wow!"

    What a fabulous location, accommodation & the very best host. Elaine is such a great host & the property is spotlessly clean, really well appointed in the most peaceful & wellbeing supporting location. The Welcome Lemon Drizzle cake is also a lovely touch. We stayed over an extended period of weeks whilst awaiting completion of of our new house move and Elaine & her family were so accommodating and thoughtful......the farm and the animals are terrific to observe and the whole set up is 5 Star ! Couldn't recommend it highly enough - make sure you pop down the road to The Red Lion for a bite in the next village of Helidon, it is a gastro treat & a really lovely pub!

  • "The Barn is a stylish, clean & cosy property and set In beautiful countryside/farm."

    Our host was very welcoming too. We visited Althorp & Canon Ashby, both worth a visit and enjoyable. There is lots of places to visit in the surrounding areas. The local pub in Hallidon ‘ Red Lion’ serves good food. We had a very enjoyable & relaxed 4 night stay.

  • "The Apple Barn is a little gem."

    It is beautifully and thoughtfully presented with plenty of attention to detail. Even the knives for food preparation were sharp (a first for me in holiday cottages). The bed and bed linen are great. Also there were white towels and grey towels so you always knew you were using your own towel. We would have liked more instructions in the booklet about how to dispose of food waste, dry mixed recycling and general rubbish. We were working from home and there is not a lot of space for two work stations but it is a holiday cottage not a live/work space. The wifi connection was excellent. We would happily come again but if we did we would try to book one of the other two units as they have a better view and access to the garden. Neither were available for our dates which were a last minute booking after another owner had let us down by cancelling our stay. We feel very lucky to have been here in the peace and quiet.

Tucked away in the scenic village of Catesby, rich in farmland and tranquillity, rests The Apple Barn, a charming adobe nestled on a farmyard.

An idyllic setting for cyclists and walking enthusiasts, this romantic dwelling is the perfect getaway for a couple looking for a rural escape.

Park outside and make your way inside the cottage; admire the bright and airy quality of the open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with a refreshing light décor and thoughtfully laid-out furniture.

Step over to the amply-equipped kitchen, housing all of the essential amenities required to assist you when preparing mouth-watering dishes for your loved one; pop open a bottle of fizz and settle down at the intimate dining table for a candle-lit dinner for two.

In the warmer months, take your dining experience outside, where the owner has granted guests access to their fantastic garden, which boasts spectacular views of the unspoilt countryside; savour a glass of wine as you watch the sun set in the distance.

Following an action-packed day, unwind with a leisurely seat on the sumptuous sofa, flicking on the television for some entertainment, or if you'd prefer, curl up with a compelling book to enjoy a moment of peace.

As the evening grows darker, prepare for bed with a luxurious soak in the contemporary en-suite bathroom, stylishly tiled throughout with neutral tones to create a calming ambiance, and retire for the evening to the king-size bedroom, with its sloped ceilings and white-washed walls, this room offers an intimate setting to rest your head.

For a romantic escape with your loved one, stay at The Apple Barn.
