About the Owner

Hi, we are the ‘Anderson’ family; Jim, Tracey, Phoebe and Lily.

We moved to Burton Joyce nearly 10 years ago to enjoy village life; country walks, fantastic local shops, pubs with real fires and near enough to enjoy the busy Nottingham City.

Outside of work, Jim enjoys training for sporting challenges and has recently completed the Nottingham Half Iron Man (he still has the scars to prove it!)

Tracey is a business and life coach, providing Human Resource solutions and coaching to local businesses and personal clients – to relax she enjoys the challenge of avoiding sport and fitness…

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Relaxing stay in Applepip cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving in a cottage and finding a filled fridge, croissants, crumpets, coffee and tea, what more do you want?

This little cottage perfectly server our purpose. We stayed a couple of nights with 2, one night with 3 adults. It is perfectly suited for 2 people and even with 3 you can move around comfortably.

Tracey gave us a warm welcome, as well as the 2 Labradors.

Town center is about 10 minutes walk away.

Pleasant and private

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, Tracey did all she could to accommodate our needs. 'Apple Pip' is very comfortable and a great value for a weekend or longer. We stayed 3 weeks and enjoyed Burton Joyce and the Nottingham area.

Very happy with our stay in Burton Joyce! My husband and I and daughter who's six years old had an enjoyable week. The village has all the necessary amenities, theres a great playpark and riverside walks with lots of friendly cows! Communications into Nottingham and surrounding areas for days out are good. The accomodation itself is very clean, modern and well equiped, also if you have forgotten anything Tracy is on hand to help. The welcome food package was great, very generous and indeed most welcome. Thanks again and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend your annex to family and friends.

This property was extremely well appointed and perfect for us. There were 3 adults in our party and although this worked out well for us when we had originally booked we thought there would be 2 of us and it would definitely have been spacious enough for two, it required a bit more organisation with the three of us.

The property is an annexe attached to the main house but it has it's own entrance and there is a well designed entrance that is alongside the drive but provides an excellent level of privacy. We were lucky enough to have very good weather so we ate outside each evening. The kitchen had everything you could need and it was particularly lovely to have the fridge and cupboards stocked with essentials (an non essentials) when we arrived, for example bread, butter, fruit juice, croissants and breakfast cereal. There is also a coffee machine and coffee pods were also in the cupboard.

The property was beautifully clean and looked extremely stylish, I don't think the current pictures fully do justice to this property. I would definitely recommend staying here. Tracey and Jim were friendly and helpful and Tracey was extremely responsive in answering questions we had before and during our stay. I'm not going to write anymore because I don't want everyone booking up so that we can't go back!

Perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The annex was everything as it was described and very well equiped. Spotlessly clean and Tracey was very attentative making sure everything was okay and if there was anything she could do for us. The welcome pack was wonderful with so much in it, very much appreciated. Would highly recommend. Thank you Tracey and Jim.

From the Owner

Interested in walking or running? Get your walking boots or your running shoes on! Surrounded by fields, the River Trent and bridle paths there is plenty for you to explore to find your own walking or running adventure. Or enjoy one of six walks planned by the local history society, each between 4 and 10 miles in length. Or is Freewheeling your thing? A bike ride or tour might not seem an obvious way to explore but we can make it easy for you. Hire one of our bikes to emerge yourself into the country or head to the City. Alternatively bring your own bike and we can lock it away when you aren’t enjoying the great outdoors! Follow the cycle path 7 miles to Nottingham City Center or take an easy 10-minute cycle to the Severn Trent River. Along the River you can enjoy crossing train tracks, passing through quiet farm tracks and snaking through fields and crossing streams…reaching idyllic country pubs which face the river Trent.

We love Nottingham! We hope that once you visit you’ll love it too!

Applepip annex is located in the middle of the Nottinghamshire countryside, Burton Joyce.

Burton Joyce is just outside Nottingham and next to the River Trent, with winding lanes, fields and surrounded by an abundance of wildlife – perfect for relaxing and getting away from distractions of home and work.

The annex can be linked to the ‘big city’ either via a quick car drive, the local bus service or the Burton Joyce Railway Station.

There are numerous pubs locally, all of which are just a 10-minute walk, all serving food and having lovely outside areas to sit out and enjoy the countryside.

There is over 1,600 square miles of Nottinghamshire to explore so you won’t be bored, there are plenty of things to do every day of the year.

Enjoy the great outdoors discovering the fascinating network of caves and the enchanting Sherwood Forest or immerse yourself in the city’s history and culture, from Robin Hood and Nottingham to literary heroes such as DH Lawrence.

Nottinghamshire is fantastic for seeing world-class sport, amazing live performances, excellent nightlife and cutting edge art in some outstanding venues.

If you love shopping you will have a fantastic choice when it comes to indulging in a little shopping trip. If you venture into the heart of the City with its shopping centres, high-end arcades and Derby Road with its stretch of boutique shops, you will not fail to be blown away with the choice and you might find your purse is a little bit lighter afterwards.

Across Nottinghamshire you will find a host of different restaurants offering fine dining, vegetarian food, international flavours and afternoon teas
