Apple Tree Lodges have a charming history that adds further character to the impressive hand-built, eco-friendly buildings: all ten lodges were erected on the site of a WW2 Women's Land Army Hostel.

All lodges come fully equipped with cooking utensils and guests can rent BBQs to enhance their stay; alternatively, there is a Lodge Takeaway Service to facilitate those nights when everyone wants to take a break from the kitchen.
