Set in a great location which is easy to find, The Retreat is a well equipped self catering cottage, perfect for that romantic weekend away. Joy really has thought of everything you might need, from salt and pepper to menus for local restaurants. Will definitely return and recommend to others. more

Management response:

Thank you for your helpful lines - we love to promote local restaurants - from the pub that serves food at the top of our road within walking distance to the more well known ones such as the Hix Oyster and Fish House in nearby Lyme Regis and the River Cottage Canteen in nearby Axminster. Hope to see you again... more

She took the time to explain everything and spent time giving us a rundown of where to go and what to do locally. All the... more

What a lift to know our guests enjoyed their stay - please be assured a warm welcome awaits you should you return. We are lucky to have Terry and his Taxi for a £15 return fare to River Cottage HQ - and good advice to book in advance. It's a popular place to visit for Dinner in the 17th Century... more
