About Ali Siddall

Ali & I moved to Cornwall in 2001 and have been involved in renovating property in and around the Fowey area since. We have two properties with Owners Direct (Smugglers Cottage sleeping 4, & Appletree House, sleeping up to 10, in nearby Tywardreath), both properties were renovated for luxury holiday letting.

We handle the bookings and management of the cleaning and maintenance ourselves; in addition Ali, who is a Garden Designer, designed and implemented the landscaping of both gardens.

We are both keen sailors and regularly race our local built Fowey River Dinghy - a 15 ft wooden clinker built boat with beautiful black and lime green sails – you may even see us out racing in the Fowey River estuary on Wednesday evenings or Saturday afternoons.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Appletree House is great with lots of space and good facilities and the peaceful location and beautiful countryside views were just what we had hoped for. What an immaculate and spacious house with gorgeous views over countryside. The children enjoyed the freedom of the garden and the facilities of the toy room (study). At 9pm every evening we saw a family of deer in the field next door.

The first thing we said once we had walked through the door was, WOW! The house was very spacious and clean. And all facilities we could have wished for were present. The microwave wasn't working and within 2 hours we had a new microwave delivered. The location is a perfect base for exploring Cornwall. The local people were very friendly and plenty of pubs with great food close to the house. We would recommend this property to anyone wishing to have a vacation in Cornwall. In fact, we wish we could have picked up the house and taken it with us ;-)

Superb mini-break

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Appletree house. Lovely and spacious accommodation for our group of 8 plus eight month baby. The owner was very flexible with our requests - nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend staying here and wouldn't hesitate returning on another occasion.

Holiday Haven

  • 5 of 5

The listing details for Apple tree House were pretty much spot on. The garden was tranquil and perfect for bar-b-cues and eating alfresco! The kitchen was extremely well equipped and spacious, as was the massive lounge. We were three families with two 2 year olds and an 8 year old so having 3 bathrooms was a huge bonus. The property is well maintained and thoroughly clean which is a very important factor for me. it was great being able to converse via email with the owner who couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. I would thoroughly recommend the house to others which also has a good location, being only minutes from Par, Polkerris, Fowey and Charlestown. It only took us 15 minutes to get to the Eden Project too, so an ideal spot for visiting lots of interesting places nearby. All the family were impressed - the men brought their cycles and the women went running, even bringing fish and chips back on one occasion from a nearby take-away, which were excellent. There is nothing to criticise at all - we could have stayed on longer!

Long weekend at Appletree House

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to have a short break over the Bank Holiday weekend in the first week of May. I had tried to find a suitable place through various websites but they were not flexible. Then I had the idea to try ownersdirect.co.uk and talk direct to owners. It proved to be worth my while as I came across what looked like a wonderful cottage in Cornwall by the name of Appletree House. I got the number of Ali, the owner, and spoke to her on the phone. I found her to be extremely accommodating, flexible and negotiated the days, times and money with her.

When we arrived at Appletree House it was everything we anticipated and more. The large square lounge, well equipped kitchen/dining area, amazing master bedroom, good sized other bedrooms, colourful décor we found to be very homely and welcoming. Not to mention the downstairs study/bedroom which we used for my elderly mother. The gardens were also very well kept.

We were after a short break to escape the daily routine. We had a fabulous time. The thing that I liked the most and won me over was the fact that Ali genuinely wanted for us to enjoy our time at Appletree House and went the extra mile to understand our needs. So, I wanted to say a special big THANK YOU to Ali for a wonderful short break.

Birthday weekend at Appletree

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time celebrating my birthday at Appletree house with friends and family. The house is absolutely perfect for larger groups (8 in our group), with plenty of space and bathrooms to ensure everyone had a very relaxing (and luxurious!) time.

The location is great for visiting this wonderful area of South Cornwall- with great pubs and restaurants just down the road (Sam's on the Beach is our favourite), the beautiful town of Fowey only 10mins drive, lots of beaches within easy reach, the Eden Project on your doorstep and much more only a short drive away.

One of the real highlights of the house is the huge kitchen and living area downstairs. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the gigantic lounge opens out straight into the garden- great for BBQs and warm summer evenings.

We also loved the massive master bedroom with a very luxurious, modern bathroom (and the biggest bath I've ever seen!) walk in wardrobe and views over the fields and beyond.

In summary, probably one of the highest quality, best equipped and well designed house (for larger groups particularly) we have ever stayed in on holiday. We will definitely be back!
