Message: We booked Applehay Studio after seeing the many positive reviews and photos and as base for exploring the Dorset region. But it was even nicer than we imagined! The hosts could not have been more welcoming and friendly, and the studio is private, quiet, spotless, comfortable and full of charm, as is the tiny village of Semley where it is located. The drive to and from the village each day turned out to be part of the fun, as the area is filled with picturesque country lanes and villages, and yet Shaftesbury is only minutes away. Right next door to the studio is a great little boutique food market that has a great selection of items for breakfast (including freshly baked croissants!) and picnic lunches. We would love to stay there again except longer next time. Highly recommended!
